'The Fancy Man and I'
The four ladies sat in their living room, doing various things, Dorothy grading papers, Blanche doing her nails in the usual killer lady red, Rose doing a children's cross word puzzle and Sophia looking off into basically nothing when just that moment the doorbell rings, it rings again and Sophia says:
"Finally! a date for Dorothy!"
Dorothy looks at her mother like she's just gone insane (which you have to wonder) and she laughs and says:
"Ma, dates don't just show up at doors"
She gets up to go answer it and Blanche innocently says:
"They do for me"
Sophia starts to say something like a insult when Dorothy says:
"Ma! don't remember the 'home?"
Sophia shuts up and Dorothy answers the doorbell and a tall, redheaded man stands there, he has glasses on, Dorothy says:
"Yes, may we help you?"
Blanche gets up quickly and slithers over and says as she pushes Dorothy out of the way:
"I'll handle this Dorothy..."
Doroth just looks exhausted as Blanche considers another sexual conquest then she says:
"May I help you?"
The man smiles then says:
"My name is Lt. Caine, I'm with CSI: Miami"
He shows them his badge and Sophia says:
"What can we do for you copper?"
Dorothy is outraged and she yells:
Lt. Caine just smiles and says:
"Which one of you is Blanche Devereaux?"
Everybody points to Blanche and she says:
"I am, how may I be of help?"
Sophia just can't help but saying:
"For starters, tell him the name of every pimp in town"
Dororthy face goes red and she walks over and says:
"I'm sorry, my mother has gone crazy"
Blanche says under her breath:
"And I'll put her back in the home"
Lt. Caine just smiles then as quickly his smile dissappears then he says:
"I'm sorry, we are here to ask you, did you know a Charles Blanco?"
The girls look at each other then the Lt. looks through his notebook then says:
"You may know him better as 'Coco'"
Blanche's eyes go wide and she says:
"That's my houseboy!"
Sophia says again:
"The boy is as fruity as a orange but he's no criminal!"
Dorothy wants to die but Lt. Caine just says:
"No, I'm sorry, he's dead"
You could hear everybody's heartbeat then and Blanche silently signals for him to come in, they all sit down and Lt. Caine asks:
"When was the last time any of you saw 'Coco'?"
Sophia speaks up and says:
"Two nights ago, we went to the dog tracks"
Rose speaks up:
"Are you sure he's dead, maybe he's out with the dogs"
The girls look at her then Blanche says:
"He's dead Rose or he wouldn't be here!"
Lt. Caine just looks around then asks:
"How do you know him ma'm?"
Blanche shoves a tear away then sniffles then says:
"As I said, he's my houseboy"
He gets out his notepad and writes some notes then asks again:
Blanche thinks hen says:
"George and I hired him about 5 years before he died so 6 years?"
He writes it down and Blanche proceeds to say:
"But after Gorge died, the money started dwindling so for the last 6 months, it was only when I could afford him, needed him or sometimes he would just show up and work for days!"
The girls comfort Blanche then she asks:
"How did you know where to find me?"
This time he smiles and says:
"In his apartment, he left a letter stating you as his only living relative"
Blanche goes in shock and Rose says:
"Blanche, I didn't know you and Coco were related"
She stutters then says:
"We weren't...there wasn't anybody else?"
He shakes his head then says:
"Not that we could find"
Dorothy then asks:
"Lt. Caine, how did Coco die?"
Everybody goes silent as they wait for the answer.
