"Who is that woman with Stanley?" Tiffany asked as the two sisters stared through the window of the café on Columbus Avenue while they waited for their lunch to be served.
"I'm not sure. I wish she'd turn around," Starlene said watching closely as the waitress placed two salads on the table in front of them.
"Will there be anything else?" the waitress asked as she glanced at Starlene to see she had never turned to look at the plate but had her face almost pressed into the window.
"No. Matter of fact... here," Tiffany said handing her a credit card to pay for the lunches. "We might have to leave soon," Tiffany said.
"I'll be right back with your receipt," the waitress said hurrying towards the cash register.
"Who is she?" Tiffany asked as she looked towards the jewelry store across the street. They watched as Starlene's lover Stanley stared at the window display with another woman.
"I don't know. I wonder if I should go over there," Starlene said.
"Here you go," the waitress said handing Tiffany a receipt.
"Thanks," Tiffany said.
"Will there be anything else?" the waitress asked.
"Yeah. What kind of jewelry does that store across the street sell?" Starlene asked the waitress without ever turning her attention from the window.
"Mostly engagement rings. It's called Diamonds are Forever Jewelry," the waitress said leaving the table when she saw two businessmen taking a seat nearby.
"Oh no. I wonder if Stanley's becoming engaged to someone else," Starlene said as her nose pressed into the glass.
"They sure are standing there a long time too," Tiffany added as she watched.
"Look! She turned around," Starlene said.
"Who is it? Do you know her?" Tiffany asked as she watched closely.
"If she would just turn around a little more," Starlene said as they watched Stanley and the woman talking and looking into the window of the jewelry store.
"Oh this just breaks my heart," Starlene said.
"Maybe it's just a friend," Tiffany said hoping that she sounded more convincing than she felt.
"There! She's turning around now," Starlene said. "Oh no. He kissed her on the cheek," she added as her voice trailed off in pain.
"I think I know who that is," Tiffany said. "It looks like," she said stopping as the woman turned back towards the window.
"Who?" Starlene asked.
"I'm not completely sure. Just a minute," Tiffany said as they both watched closely.
The woman turned around and looked straight across the street as if she were looking into the window of the café where the two sisters' were seated with their noses pressed into the window.
"Lola Rodgers!" They both said in unison as they jerked their noses away from the window.
"Well, I'll be," Tiffany said as they both continued to stare.
"I should have known. I should have known," Starlene said as a tear rolled down her cheek.
"Maybe it's innocent. You know the two of them have known each other for years," Tiffany said.
"In the biblical sense too," Starlene added as they watched.
"Oh no," Tiffany said. "They're crossing the street. They'll see us in the window Starlene," Tiffany said as Stanley and Lola crossed Columbus Avenue arm in arm walking towards the café.
