Tina blew out a quick breath, straightened the seams of her dress and smoothed out her jacket. She raised her hand to her chest and then dropped it, resisting the urge to touch the button camera.
“Hello Eric, you wanted to see me?” she said, closing the door behind her and turning to face him with a tight smile.
“Yes Tina, have a seat” he replied.
She walked slowly to the small seating area, choosing the chair next to Aaron. She sat down crossing her legs tightly and faced Eric who sat on the small sofa.
He appeared lightly ruffled. He was man spreading, his legs open wide, his pants and shirt creased, balancing a half empty glass on his knee.
At first she assumed it was a glass of orange juice, but as he leaned forward to speak to her she could smell the gin on his breath. It must have been coming from his pores, because it soon overwhelmed her, even masking the typical stench of his cologne.
She glanced at Aaron, who sat slumped down a bit in his armchair, his hands folded in his lap, one ankle crossed over the other knee. His foot shook nervously in his brown Italian leather shoe. He wiped at the small sheen of sweat on his brow with the flat of his palm and smiled wide at her, but it fell short of his eyes.
“What’s this about” she asked softly, turning her direction towards Eric.
“Oh I just wanted to check in with you. Uh..how was your weekend.” he asked, his cold eyes piercing through hers.
“Well…it was sad” she said, looking down at her hands before returning his gaze.
“Oh yeah, the Dana Fairbanks thing. Sorry about that.” He paused to take sip of his drink. “But you shouldn’t be sad, I mean you looked great, Tina.”
“Not that that’s what I was going for, Eric, but…” she began, but was cut off thankfully. She didn’t know where that ‘but’ was leading.
“I know, I know. But this is Hollywood.” he replied with his alligator like grin.
“I heard Billy Jean King was there. Did you see her. She’s one of yours right?” asked Aaron, too loud, making her flinch.
