Chapter 7 The Joke
David – And then I would use all my beauty tricks to seduce that stunning woman! You do have tricks, don’t you, Tina?
The blonde smiles self-consciously.
Eric – I’m picturing them right now!
Tina – Eric …
She admonishes her boyfriend, who chuckles.
Eric – I’m sorry, honey! I just had this incredible thought of you and Bette together!
David laughs out loud and Tina rolls her eyes. They don’t notice that Bette is approaching them right at that moment.
Bette – What is the joke?
David Ross’ mansion, night: Tina is startled by the brunette’s voice behind her.
David – Speaking of the devil!
David – I was telling them about my undying love for you, my dear … and Eric was quick to point out that I am gender challenged in this matter.
Bette laughs and the blonde smiles politely.
David – Then we had this great idea! I would become Tina for a day to try and seduce you.
The gallery owner raises an eyebrow, pleasantly surprised by the comment and Tina’s smile vanishes in discomfort.
Bette – Really?!
Eric – It’s his best shot, Bette!
The brunette turns her attention to the blonde, who chuckles embarrassed, shaking her head.
Bette – And you wouldn’t mind, Eric?
Eric – Oh, David just assured me that I would be sent packing in a New York minute, Bette!
Bette – I would hope so …
She smiles charmingly, intently looking at the producer who is now serious and somewhat nervous.
Bette – Do you think you could seduce me … David?
She asks, her eyes never leaving the blonde’s, her lips curving up in a sensual smile.
David – Go ahead, Tina! Say yes and make my day!
Tina smiles and looks down embarrassed. But just as soon, she fights back and meets Bette’s gaze with confidence.
Tina – Yeah! I could seduce her … David.
The gallery owner’s eyes sparkle. She chuckles and seems to be off balance for a second.
Eric – There you go, David!
The art dealer laughs.
The brunette turns to him.
Bette – I tell you what, David … I wouldn’t mind being seduced by you.
She looks back at the blonde.
Bette – It would be exquisite …
The two women gaze into each other’s eyes.
