Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Friday December 17th 2004
"Look Starlene, I don't know what's going on next door. All I know is that my ex-husband and lover is over there alone with my roommate Deanna, a stripper," Tiffany said into the phone as the tears rolled down her cheeks.
"Well did they try to get you to come into the apartment with them?" Starlene asked.
"Yes, but I slammed the door on them. I'm just so angry that Skeeter is alone with her."
"Well she said she went over there to see Vinny so why isn't Vinny there?"
"I don't know Starlene. I don't know. I just know Vinny wasn't there and she's been over there for an hour," Tiffany said.
"What are you going to do Tiffany?"
"I don't know. But I do know for sure I'm throwing Deanna out," Tiffany said.
"Even though she says she'll pay all the rent?"
"Yes. If I lose the apartment and end up on the street I can't live with her," Tiffany said choking on tears.
"Do you want me to come over there?"
"That's okay," Tiffany said as she noticed the music had been lowered in the apartment next door.
"Are you okay Tiffany?"
"Shhh. They turned the music down," Tiffany said as she got up and walked towards the front door with her cell phone hoping to be able to hear better.
"What do you hear now?" Starlene asked.
"Nothing," Tiffany said.
"Oh no. I bet they're doing it," Starlene said regretting her words immediately.
"I bet they are too. I bet that stripper is over there undressed with Skeeter," Tiffany said starting to cry.
"I'm coming over there to be with you tonight," Starlene said.
"No. You can't come over Stanley will worry that you want to see Vinny again," Tiffany said referring to the fact that Starlene once had a fling with Vinny.
"I can't stand this. I can't stand to see my sister hurt by that stripper Deanna," Starlene said bitterly.
"I'll be okay," Tiffany said as she heard a knock on her door. "Somebody is at my door," Tiffany whispered through her tears.
"See who it is," Starlene said. "I'll stay on the phone."
Tiffany lifted the metal cover on the peephole and looked out. "Its Skeeter," she said.
"Oh. Well, I'll let you go. Call me when he leaves."
"Okay," Tiffany said wiping the tears from her cheeks with the arm of her sweater. She closed her cell phone and put it in the pocket of her jeans before opening the front door. "Hi Skeeter," she said dryly.
"I want to talk to you Tiffany," he said starting to walk towards her.
"I thought you were partying with Deanna," she said.
"I want to talk to you," he said walking into her apartment and closing the door.
"I'm surprised you could leave your apartment. It looked like you and my roommate Deanna were having a good time," Tiffany said as she took a seat on her sofa.
"I want to get some things straight right now. I don't like what's going on here with you," Skeeter said as he sat down in the chair across from her.
"You don't like what's going on with me? I think it's the other way around Skeeter. Or should I call you 'Big Daddy' like she does," Tiffany said glaring at her ex-husband.
