Chapter 5 The Party
Previously: Eric and Tina are having lunch at a fancy restaurant.
Eric – I forgot to tell you that I received an invitation for a party at David Ross’ home next week.
Tina – We?!
Eric – He invited both of us.
Tina – Isn’t he that big shot art dealer that you keep talking about?
Eric – Yes, it is his home. You are not going to miss the opportunity to check it out, are you?
Tina – We’ll see …
She continues to eat her food looking concerned.
Tina’s bedroom, evening: Tina steps out of the bathroom in her underwear and looks at the bed where four different dresses are laid out. She purses her lips and opens the closet again, staring at her clothes with a frown.
Maybe, she won’t be there …, she muses. Shit! Whom are you fooling?!
Tina – Of course, she will be there!
She sighs, closing her eyes to calm herself down.
So what? You are overreacting. And because of what? Because of a silly kiss which you have gotten over?
Tina – You will be fine!
She says, trying to convince herself. But she feels butterflies in her stomach, and for some reason, she can’t decide what to wear.
Tina’s living room, evening: The doorbell rings and Tina makes her way to the living room looking tense and wearing a robe. She opens the door to Eric, who is smiling and formally dressed in an elegant grey suit.
His smile fades when he sees her.
Eric – Honey … you’re still undressed?!
She gives him a light kiss on the cheek.
Tina – I know, I know … I couldn’t make up my mind about what to wear.
Eric – Why? You have amazing dresses!
Tina – Umm … nothing looks good tonight …
Eric – I can’t imagine!
Tina – Are you sure that you don’t want to just relax tonight? Maybe a movie and dinner?
Eric – No. You will have fun, I promise!
He gives her a peck on the lips.
Eric – Hurry … please?
Tina – OK.
She heads back to her bedroom in slow steps.
Bette’s living room, evening: Bette’s phone rings and she answers, wearing shorts and a tank top.
