Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Tuesday August 3rd 2004
"Would you bring me another beer while you're in the kitchen?" Skeeter called out to his ex-wife Tiffany.
"Sure," she replied opening the refrigerator door in her apartment overlooking Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village. She took out a beer and walked back into the living room where Skeeter was seated on her sofa.
"Here," she said handing him the beer and taking a seat beside him.
"Don't look so worried. Your sister is a grown woman. Starlene will take care of herself," he said seeing that she was clearly still concerned about her.
"I just worry that she'll marry Vinny. If only she hadn't run off with her wedding gown draped over her arm," Tiffany said.
"I hear someone at the door," Skeeter said reaching for the remote and turning down the sound on the TV as the key turned in the door to Tiffany's apartment.
"It's just me," Starlene called out as the door opened and she walked in wearing her long white wedding gown.
"Oh no! Oh no! You married him," Tiffany said as her hand flew up to her mouth.
"No, just relax Tiffany," Starlene said closing the door and walking into the living room.
"You look great Baby," Skeeter said smiling as his eyes feasted on her voluptuous bosom in the low cut wedding gown she was wearing.
"Starlene are you okay?" Tiffany said jumping up and rushing towards her sister as they embraced.
"Yeah, I'm fine," she said as Tiffany stepped back and looked at the long white wedding gown.
"I didn't marry Vinny," Starlene said as her face dropped.
"That's great. I'm so relieved to hear that," Tiffany said smiling.
"Why didn't you marry him?" Skeeter asked.
"Because we were supposed to go down there and get a marriage license and then come back the next day. Vinny said he didn't know that. He made a complete fool of us," she said as her eyes narrowed.
"Oh honey that's for the best. This is a blessing in disguise," Tiffany said shaking her head.
"Maybe you think so," she said walking towards the chair and taking a seat.
"Starlene, Vinny's in the Mafia. You would have ruined your life," Tiffany said.
"He got the license today and he wants for me to go back down there tomorrow and marry him," Starlene said shaking her head angrily.
"Do it Baby, he's loaded," Skeeter said thinking about the red Ferrari they left in.
"Shut up Skeeter," Tiffany snapped.
"Don't worry. I don't think I'll do it," Starlene said as Tiffany walked to the sofa and took a seat beside Skeeter.
"Why not?" Skeeter asked.
"Well the most romantic thing in the world happened," Starlene said grinning broadly.
"What?" Tiffany asked worried the romantic event was tied to Vinny.
"Stanley sent an agent with Playbody Magazine down there to tell me that they want me to pose again," Starlene said crossing her legs under the layers of her long white wedding gown.
"Really?" Tiffany asked happy to hear that her request for him to 'do something right away' had paid off.
"Yeah, the guy told me that Stanley told him 'he'd do anything to keep me'," she said smiling hopefully.
"You believed that old man again?" Skeeter asked before taking a long sip of his beer.
