Tina and The Mask
Chapter Ten The Double Date
Stanley sat uncomfortably next to both Kathy and Charlie, "I wish that Tina hadn't suggested this date with these two, man what am I going to do?" He asked himself as he watched Charlie waling back from the bar with a tray of glasses in his hands, "cheer up Stanley," Charlie smiled as he handed him a large glass of beer, "Tina will be here at any moment and I am sure that she will put your mind at ease?" Stanley looked at his friend and smiled at him, "to be honest with you Charlie I will feel a lot better when Tina's with us," "why is that?" A female voice asked coming from behind him, Stanley turned his head and meet face to face with Kathy, she was wearing a low green cloured dress that exposed her boobs and was holding a large glass of red coloured liquid in her hand, "Kathy," Stanley said as he felt a lump in his throat, "the reason why I am looking forward to seeing Tina tonight is because well we are boyfriend and girlfriend and it's the night of our anniversary." She looked at him and smiled "anniversary that's so sweet we then you will have to be on your best behavior then won't you?" Stanley looked at her puzzled at what she just said, "what do you mean by that?" He asked her in a low soft voice, she then smiled at him and then turned her head, "looks like she's here Stan?" She said as she turned back towards him with a smile on her face, Stanley then stood up and as he did he could see Tina, she was wearing a red dress and a pair of matching high heeled shoes, around her shoulders she was carrying a red leather handbag.
Seeing him Tina made her way slowly towards the table where all three of them were sitting, "sorry I am late I got caught up with a few things," she said as she sat down breathless, "it's OK Tina," Charlie said as he sat grinning at her, "Stanley was getting a bit worried that you weren't going to make it." He said as he grinning at them both, "really Charlie?" Tina said as she turned her head towards Stanley who smiled at her, as he placed one of his arms around her waist he looked up at her face, "are you OK Tina it looks like you've been crying?" Tina looked at him and smiled "I am fine baby it's just I have been a little emotional after one of my shows that's all," "speaking of shows when are you going up to perform for us?" Kathy asked her as she began sucking on a staw, Tina looked at her and gave her a thin smile, "I'm afraid that it won't be tonight as I have lost my voice," "really I would never have guessed that does that mean that Ms. Mask won't be making an appearance?" Charlie asked as he smiled at her, Tina turned her head toward him but before she could say anything she caught a glimpse of Tony on the stage, "ladies and gentlemen it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to the Coco Bongo's newest singer Sarah Williams." The stage curtain rolled back and out walked Sarah wearing the same coloured dress that Tina had seen her wearing, Tina looked at Stanley who was shocked at what he was seeing, "babe I've got to got to the bathroom as I am not feeling too good," Stanley turned to her and tried to put his hand on her waist, "are you OK and is this what was upsetting you?"
Tina looked at him and gave him a worried look, "no I'm just not feeling too well," she said as she got up and ran towards the women's bathroom near the side of the bar, "what's wrong with her?" Kathy asked as she turned her head towards Stanley, "I don't think that she's feeling too well?" He said back as he tried not to look at the woman singing on the stage, in the bathroom Tina looked at herself in the mirror as she washed her face, on the side on the sink next to her sat the Mask, Tina walked slowly up to it and smiled as she held it up, "well old friend this is it payback time for that bitch, I wonder if Stanley will like my new look?" She said as she held it close to her face smiling as she did.
