Once Bette had left, Tina casually asked Alice about an artist she had met at an art fair a couple weekends ago. She showed Alice a picture of the artist she had taken from the flyer announcing the fair. With her position in the entertainment world, Tina often came across young artists looking to broaden their reach either through set design, movie poster work or to making easy money creating backdrops. Alice also had an uncanny way of knowing lesbian artists, especially in the alternative world of art and culture.
“Well”, Alice said, leaning into Tina, “I know she was at Milk the other night snogging a certain redheaded lady of the night…” she began before Shane interrupted her. “Snogging?” She looked at Carmen, who shrugged.
“Snogging. More than kissing less than tonsil tennis” Alice replied seriously to Shane. “I’m doing a list of the top ten British vernaculars for making out”. Alice continued, ”you know…snogging…copping off… smooching…” she said, ticking them off on her fingers.
“Lady of the night?” Shane interrupted again and looked at Carmen, who leaned in for a kiss, saying “I want to snog” as she giggled. “Sheesh, what is going on with all the kissing this morning, can’t you people do that at home?” Alice asked, throwing her napkin at Shane and Carmen. Shane caught the napkin mid-air and pulled Carmen in for a full on, tongue to tongue, lip smacking kiss that made Carmen squirm in her seat.
“Alice, the artist…tell me about the artist. The flyer says her name is Elena. What do you know about her?” Tina implored, in an attempt to get Alice back on track.
“I know she goes to Milk every night and I know she doesn’t go home alone…she has a reputation,” Alice said in a conspiratorial tone. “She gets in trouble at the clubs sometimes and has caused some problems with some of the top players, if you know what I’m saying. She’s hot and she’s really chic…she wears these red leather pants that…”
“Alice, I need you do me a favor” Tina interrupted, catching Shane’s attention. “Find out everything you can about Elena. Everything.”
