"Why haven't you answered any of my phone calls?"
"Ah already told you, John. It's ovah."
He grabs her wrist when she moves to walk away from him. "You're not going anywhere until you give me my due!"
"Yoah due?" Blanche demands icily, staring boldly up at him. "An' just what would yoah 'due' be?"
"You're not fooling any one, Blanche! I know what people are saying, but I know it's not true! A woman like you isn't going to make a switch like that!"
"For Christ's sake, Blanche, do you really think I'm that stupid?! Everybody's saying you're going with a woman now!"
"So what if she is?" The voice that cuts into their conversation comes from the shadows. It's low, deep, and warns of danger. The speaker takes a single step forward. The light catches her earrings, and the gold Blanche knows is fake but has never been happier to see glows.
"What? Is this your piece now? Blanche, you're not that kind of woman!"
"Let go o' me!" She snatches her arm free, but the menacing look he gives her makes her spine shiver. "It's none o' yoah business who Ah'm doin'!"
"It is if she's getting what's supposed to be mine! But come on! That old, wrinkly prune?! You're not going to choose her over me!"
Suddenly, the man's hit from behind. As he topples forward, Blanche and Dorothy recognize the old woman landing back on her feet after jumping up and hitting him in the back of his head with her purse. "That's my daughter you're talking about!"
"Sophia! Are you okay?"
"I am, but let's get out of here before this yutz gets back on his feet!" They beat a hasty retreat together.
