Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Friday December 10th 2004
"I'm going to tell Deanna today, as soon as she gets home from her class at NYU. I can't live like this. I can't live with a topless dancer," Tiffany said as she talked on the phone with her sister Starlene.
"What about Vinny? You told me that he said he wants you to be nice to Deanna because he likes her," Starlene said reminding her sister of Deanna's Mafia boyfriend.
"Well if Vinny likes her then he can rent an apartment and move her in with him. I won't be intimidated by a Mafia man," Tiffany said. "But do you think I should be worried about Vinny?" she asked having second thoughts.
"No. I can talk to Vinny for you if he's a problem," Starlene said thinking about her former one time lover.
"Thanks. I just can't take it anymore. I hate living with "Double D Deanna. It's awful."
"Yeah. I understand," Starlene said. "Besides you'll find a job and you won't need to rent out the bedroom much longer."
"I'll take you up on your offer to let me borrow money if I don't find a job. I just can't stand having her around. I know she's been nice to me, but I don't like her hanging around. I want my relationship with Skeeter to get closer and having a topless dancer in the apartment with me isn't helping. I don't think I will ever trust Skeeter that much," Tiffany said referring to her ex-husband and next door neighbor.
"Yeah, that's a lot of temptation for him. I wouldn't want Deanna around my Stanley either," Starlene said referring to her wealthy older husband.
"I've gotta go. I hear the door. It's probably Deanna coming home," Tiffany whispered.
"Call me after you tell her to leave," Starlene said.
"Okay, bye," Tiffany said hanging up the phone.
"Hi Tiffany," Deanna said closing the door and walking into the apartment.
"Hi Deanna. How are you doing? I was hoping you would come home so that we could talk" Tiffany said thinking about how she would word her eviction notice.
"I got some very unexpected news today," Deanna said smiling broadly as she walked towards the sofa and took a seat next to Tiffany.
"Oh really?" Tiffany said frowning as she thought about the task in front of her.
"What did you want to talk to me about?" Deanna asked.
"Well, it's about us and you rooming here," Tiffany said.
"I wanted to talk to you about that too," Deanna said leaning back on the sofa.
"Really?" Tiffany said hoping she would say she was moving out.
"Yeah, first I wanted to tell you that I love living here,"
"Oh," Tiffany said.
"I've thought about moving out after what happened today, but I decided that I really love being with you," Deanna said.
"You thought about moving out and changed your mind?" Tiffany asked puzzled.
"Yeah! Just wait until I tell you what happened. You know if we hadn't gotten so close lately I would be a little afraid to tell you this," Deanna said.
"Tell me what?"
"Remember you told me that some strange guy had called here a few times asking for me?" Deanna said.
"He was waiting for me when I came out of class today."
"Oh no," Tiffany said thinking that Deanna's past must be more shady than she had imagined.
"Tiffany you won't tell anybody what I'm going to tell you... will you?" Deanna asked watching her closely.
"Is it bad?" Tiffany asked.
