Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Monday January 26th 2004
Starlene spotted Stanley at the table near the front of the Blue Note Jazz Club.
She quickly made her way past the tables of patrons. Stanley turned to glance towards the front of the club and saw Starlene walking towards him.
"Hi honey," he said standing up as she came near his table.
"Where is she Stanley?" Starlene asked referring to Lola Rogers. Stanley had phoned her while she was nearby at her sister Tiffany's apartment on Bleecker Street. She had been visiting Tiffany while she waited for him to finish his business meeting. He phoned and told her he was at the Blue Note early and that his former girlfriend Lola Rogers was there with her famous mother Mimi Rogers.
"Over there," he nodded as Starlene glanced across the room to see a line of people standing by a table waiting to get autographs from the famous older singer.
"That's her?" Starlene said staring through the darkness as she took a seat at the table.
"Yeah," Stanley said pretending to be uninterested in the two women.
"She really is getting old," Starlene said.
"Well, she's a little older than you are honey," Stanley said. He thought she was referring to Mimi's daughter Lola that he had just been seated with before he called Starlene.
"I was talking about Mimi," she said turning her attention to Lola.
"Oh yes, she is getting on up there," Stanley said motioning for the waiter to bring Starlene a drink.
"And Lola is a lot older than I am," she said as her eyes narrowed.
"I guess," Stanley said nonchalantly.
"She is a lot older," Starlene said eyeing the beautiful woman in the distance. She quickly turned her head when she saw Lola glance her way.
"Did you talk to her Stanley?"
"A little," he said not wanting her to know that he had drinks with the women before he called her.
"How long did you talk?"
"Only a few minutes," he lied.
"Did anyone see you talking with her?" she asked as the waiter placed a drink on the table in front of her.
"I don't know Starlene," he lied.
"I'm glad you called me and you were honest about this. I would hate to have read about it in the newspaper or something," she said thinking about how Lola's scandalous affairs had made the newspaper many times over the past few days.
"Well, there is a small chance that a photographer took my picture with Lola nearby. Something like that," Stanley said taking a long sip of his drink.
"What are you talking about Stanley Morgan?"
"It's nothing honey. I was seated here when Lola and her mother came in. They stopped by my table and the photographer snapped a picture."
"No!" she said loud enough that the people at the next table frowned at her. "Why did you let that happen?" She said lowering her voice.
"Starlene I didn't see the photographer until it had happened. Let's don't fight over it honey. It was nothing," he said watching her stare at him through narrowed eyes.
"You must be Starlene," a woman's voice said as Starlene turned to see Lola standing behind her chair.
"And I guess you're Lola. I've seen a lot of you lately in the newspaper," Starlene said raising her eyebrows as she referred to the risqué picture of Lola and her doorman that had caused a scandal.
"Oh yes darling, I've had to get over the unwanted attention. I suppose such situations don't bother you. My limousine driver said he saw your picture in Playbody," she said raising her eyebrows as she stood glancing down at Starlene's voluptuous bosom in the low cut sweater she was wearing.
