Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Thursday October 21st 2004
Vinny sat on the sofa of Skeeter's apartment staring at the TV. He had hoped that Skeeter would soon come back to the apartment. He wanted Skeeter to tell him more about the phone call that he asked him to make to Georgia today. Vinny had persuaded Skeeter to call and see how Starlene's parents liked her new husband Stanley. The dancer that Skeeter had interviewed earlier about the room for rent in Tiffany's apartment had come back to the store and interrupted their conversation. Skeeter had taken her upstairs for a second look. The second look had been going on for almost an hour now. His impatience got the best of him. He got up and walked towards the front door. He opened the door and walked out into the hallway. He knocked on the door of Tiffany's apartment. He heard footsteps coming towards the front door. He heard the metal door of the peephole open and close just before the door opened.
"Hey man," Skeeter said grinning as he stood in Tiffany's apartment.
"What's going on over here man?" Vinny asked in his thick Brooklyn accent.
"She's a hot number," Skeeter said.
"She's still here?" Vinny asked referring to the dancer that Skeeter was interviewing for a roommate for his ex-wife Tiffany's apartment.
"She's in the shower. Man…Vinny you should have seen this girl dance," Skeeter said shaking his head.
"She danced for you?"
"Yeah, I thought about asking her if I could invite you over to watch. She's something else."
"What kind of dancing does she do?"
"She's a club dancer."
"Yeah. It's obvious ain't it?" Skeeter said raising his eyebrows.
"With that equipment I thought so," Vinny said knowingly.
"She's in the shower now. She's going home soon," Skeeter said.
"You too got it on, huh?" Vinny asked.
"Yeah. That was amazing," Skeeter boasted.
"You don't think Tiffany will find out do you?"
"No, she's cool. What's up with you?" Skeeter asked wondering why Vinny had knocked on the door.
"I'm just interested in hearing more about the telephone conversation you had this afternoon with Tiffany. I mean that dancer came in the store before you got to tell me everything," Vinny said.
"There ain't much to tell you. I just know that Starlene's Daddy doesn't like Stanley."
"Look it's that remark about Starlene maybe being pregnant that's bothering me so much. What did you find out?"
"I told you everything I know. Tiffany doesn't know. Starlene might have just said that to aggravate her parents since they don't like Stanley."
"Wonder if I should call her?"
"I don't know about that man," Skeeter said.
"What could it hurt?"
"I don't know," Skeeter said as both men turned when they heard the bathroom door open and the dancer walked out wearing nothing but a towel.
"I'll let you go man," Vinny said.
"Don't let me run you off if you guys need to talk. I'll be leaving soon," she said walking through the apartment searching for her clothes.
"Can you believe her?" Skeeter said.
"What you going to do with her when Tiffany comes back from Georgia?" Vinny asked admiring her shapely figure and long legs.
