Tina – Umm … are you sure?
Meg – Yes! Your dad plays golf, doesn’t he? He can play with Brad.
Tina – The problem is that I don’t have much free time, Goldie. The movie is wrapping up and I have lots of things going on right now. I have to work all day Saturday.
Meg – Well, then you bring them here and stay for as long as you can. I’ll take care of them!
Tina smiles broadly.
Tina – Will you? Oh, you are a lifesaver!
Meg – Of course! Just bring them Saturday morning.
Tina – Great! I will. Talk to you later, Goldie! Say hi to Brad.
Meg – Talk to you later, Belle! He will miss Eric.
Tina – I know …
She sighs sadly.
The Planet, morning: Alice and Marina are sitting in their usual spot when Bette comes in with a grin on her face.
Bette – Morning, ladies!
Alice raises her eyebrows.
Alice – What’s got into you?
The gallery owner sits down.
Bette – What?
Alice – I’ve never seen you this cheerful before your morning coffee.
Bette – Haven’t you noticed? It’s a beautiful day!
Alice – Hmm…
She turns to the café owner.
Alice – … which means that she either got her hands on a beautiful piece of art or … woman!
Bette smirks and Marina nods, smiling.
Alice – Am I right?!
The gallery owner winks.
Bette – Something like that …
She stands up and heads to the counter to get some coffee.
Alice – Yep, I can read her like a book!
Tina’s office, morning: Tina is working at her desk when Kathy comes in smiling, holding an elegant gift box and a card.
Kathy – Tina, this arrived for you. Eric is such a romantic!
The producer looks surprised.
Tina – Thanks, Kathy!
Kathy – You’re welcome!
She leaves and the blonde opens the gift to find a single red rose. She turns to the card with curiosity and opens it.
Counting the seconds …
Her mouth drops.
Tina – Oh my God …
She whispers with fascination and holds the rose against her nose, breathing in its scent with closed eyes. Her face turns into a grin with the realization that the practical, unromantic woman that she always was has completely melted because of a simple red rose. She can’t contain herself and laughs out loud.
