Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Thursday November 25th 2004
"Did Vinny say anything about when Deanna and Skeeter were alone in the apartment?" Tiffany asked her sister as she held the phone closer to her ear.
"He said that Skeeter liked Deanna," Starlene said remembering what Vinny had told her.
"I know he likes Deanna. He rented the bedroom to her while I was out of town. I want to know if Deanna and Skeeter did it?"
"Gee. I don't know Tiffany. Why don't you ask Skeeter?" Starlene said avoiding the issue.
"I did. Do you think I trust Skeeter to tell me the truth?"
"Okay. See there. You have the same problem I have. I worry that Stanley is going to go to that cocktail hour tomorrow night and be with Lola," she said referring to her new husband and his ex-lover.
"You're avoiding my question. Did Skeeter do it with Deanna while I was out of town? I want to know if you know," Tiffany demanded.
"You promise not to tell that I told you?" Starlene asked.
"Of course. Tell me if you know," Tiffany said as her heart started to race.
"Vinny says that Deanna did dance for him," Starlene said.
"I knew it! I just knew it! I'm going to kill him," Tiffany said.
"Now you promised not to tell," Starlene said.
"I won't tell him you told me."
"Did they do it?"
"I don't know about that part. You'll have to ask Skeeter yourself," Starlene said.
"Like Skeeter will tell me the truth," Tiffany said as she heard a knock on the door.
"Just ask him. He might tell you, but remember I didn't tell you. I have to go. Stanley and I are going out for Thanksgiving dinner," Starlene said.
"Somebody's at the door," Tiffany said.
"Oh no. I bet its Skeeter," Starlene said.
"Who is it?" Tiffany called out as she walked towards the door.
"It's me Baby," Skeeter said from the hallway.
"It's him," Tiffany said her voiced filled with anger.
"You promised not to tell him I told you Tiffany."
"I know. Talk to you later," she said.
"Don't kill him," Starlene said as she heard Tiffany hang up the phone.
Tiffany opened the front door wide and glared at her ex-husband.
"Hey Baby. I brought you over some turkey," Skeeter said holding a bag with two take-out dinners.
"Turkey? You brought me turkey?" Tiffany said putting her hands on her hips and staring at him.
"Yeah. It's Thanksgiving Day and I got us some dinner and a bottle of wine. I thought that while Deanna is working we could party a little," he said walking into the living room and placing the bag on the coffee table.
"How did you know Deanna was working tonight?" she asked as she closed the door.
"I saw her leaving this morning with her Go-Go bag," he said.
"Go-Go bag? Is that what she calls it?"
"Yeah," he said as he took a seat on the sofa. "What's the matter with you Tiffany? You look mad about something," he said watching her walk towards the sofa.
"You seem to know a lot about Deanna."
"Not really," he said.
"Do you know what's in her Go-Go bag?"
"Have you seen her 'girls' like everybody else?" Tiffany asked through narrowed eyes. She would never forget when Deanna told her about her dancing job and pulled up her blouse to show off her equipment.
"Look I don't like this line of questioning. The turkey is getting cold. Let's eat," he said nodding towards the bag on the coffee table.
"Cold turkey. I think cold turkey is exactly where our relationship is going," Tiffany said starting to pace the floor.
