"Skeeter you really are quite the charming man," Lola said as she watched Skeeter pour another drink from the decanter in the bar from his rented limousine.
"You're quite a woman too," he said handing her the glass. "Where would you like to go for drinks?" he asked.
"My favorite restaurant is that little French place Monte Blanc over on forty-eighth and eighth," she said.
"Take us to Monte Blanc, forty eighth and eighth," Skeeter instructed the driver.
"Skeeter I don't believe I've ever seen you at the New York Benefits Luncheons before," she said noticing his eyes watching as she crossed her legs.
"No, I was going because Jan couldn't make it. She had to go upstate today," he said.
"Jan?" she asked.
"Oh, yes, I thought I mentioned that I was married to Jan Morgan", he said casually.
"No. I didn't know," she said taking a long sip of her drink.
"I thought you knew. I hope it doesn't matter," he said taking a sip of his drink.
"So you're married."
"It's only a problem if you see it as a problem."
"Jan Morgan knows me," she said.
"Oh?" he asked pretending not to know.
"Yes, I was a close friend of her fathers."
"You still seeing him?" he asked pretending not to know who Stanley was involved with.
"No. I haven't seen him in some time."
"Well, there you go then. You aren't seeing anyone now are you?"
"No," she said as her face reddened. She knew he was thinking about the picture of her in the bed with her doorman that had made the front page of the tabloids.
"Look," he said as the limo slowed down in the traffic on Broadway.
"There must be something going on here," she said glancing out the window of the long car.
"Over there," he said pointing as they both turned to see TV cameras and photographers lined up in front of the crowds.
"Maybe this wasn't a good idea," she said.
"Oh don't let the photographers scare you, we'll slip into the restaurant," he said putting his arm around her.
"I just can't afford to be seen in the company of a married man after everything that's happened."
"Well why don't we go over there," he said pointing towards a couple of hotels on the street.
"To a hotel?" she asked.
"That's safer than going into a restaurant."
"But I don't really know you. We just met," she said wondering if she'd made a big mistake agreeing to go out for a drink with him.
"Look we both mingle in the same crowd. We know a lot of the same people. We both need a friend. You can't trust any of the men you know now. I have a wife and something to lose. If you want to relax and not worry about being seen, then my driver can slip in and get us a room. We'll go in separately. No one will ever know," he said as his lips brushed her cheeks. "What does Lola want?" He asked in his most seductive voice.
