(Nicholas opens the door to the bedroom and flips on the light. He sees Eddielaine sitting on the bed, waiting for him to arrive.) Eddielaine: You’re late. Why are you late? You usually arrive at 8:00 p.m. And from what I see, it is already 9:30. Where have you been for the past hour and a half? Nicholas: (closes the door.) We had a business meeting.

Eddielaine: Is that so? Well, I called your secretary a while ago and she said that you left at 7:30 p.m. as usual. I also asked her if you had a meeting, and she said that you had none. So where have you really been? Nicholas: Alright. I went out to visit a friend…Happy?

Eddielaine: Not really. Who is this friend? Because believe me, I phoned every friend I know you’re friends with, and they said that you weren’t with them. Nicholas: Alright, I had dinner with Veronica.

Eddielaine: (stands up from the bed and points her finger at Nicholas.) Veronica?! How dare you visit her! Nicholas: Why? Is it such a crime to have dinner with a friend? Eddielaine: I wouldn’t mind if you had dinner with one of your friends but Veronica?! You know how she wanted you back then! You know that she almost ruined our relationship! And yet you still have the guts to have dinner with her! Nicholas: Eddielaine, we just had dinner with one another…As friends. We just wanted to chat about things. Eddielaine: You probably consider her as a friend. But I know that she considers you as more than a friend. You know she loves you. You know she’s obsessed with you. And still you have dinner with her? I can’t believe this. I thought that you knew better. Nicholas: What is it with you and Veronica?! She is just a friend. Just. A. Friend. Get it? I would never have had dinner with her if I knew that something was going to happen. And believe me. Nothing happened. We just had dinner. Eddielaine: Then why do you have a lipstick mark on your cheek? Nicholas: I don’t know about that… (Turns toward a mirror.) Eddielaine: (gasps) She kissed you! You! You…You….You were having an affair! With her! I can’t believe this. Nicholas: No Eddielaine…I swear. We didn’t kiss. That lipstick mark probably got there when she gave me a kiss when we were going our separate ways. I swear I did not have an affair with her. Eddielaine: I…I have to go. I need to…clear my head or something… (turns toward the door and leaves.) Nicholas: (angry) Women! When will she ever realize that Veronica is just a friend? (Curtains close. Curtains open. We see Eddielaine and Meredith in a bar drinking martinis.) Meredith: Eddielaine, it has been a long time since you asked me to go to a bar with you. I thought that you didn’t go to bars anymore because you’re married? Eddielaine: I didn’t go to bars. I do now. I just found out that Nicholas is cheating on me. Meredith: With whom?

Eddielaine: With Veronica.
Meredith: (spits her drink) Veronica?! As in Veronica De Leon? The woman who almost broke your relationship a few years back? That Veronica? Eddielaine: Yup. That Veronica.
Meredith: Whoa. No wonder you wanted to go to a bar.
Eddielaine: Bestie…what am I going to do? I have no job, I quit it years ago when Nicholas told me that I didn’t have to…I have no family to go to, and my...
