    – BILLY SPARKS has approached her–

    BILLY SPARKS
    Hi, I’m Billy Sparks, I manage
    this place.

    Vanity turns around — her eyes widen
    with surprise–

    He’s 38 years old, 5’3″ tall and weighs
    about 180 pounds. He’s dressed in a
    baby-blue running suit, and white tennis
    shoes that come to a point. A dark-
    skinned, smooth-faced black man, he’s
    wearing small, white sunglasses and a
    base-ball cap perched on his head. Fred
    Flintstone in Harlem. A hip, fast-
    talking jive motherfucker who uses
    profanity like a light saber. Chubby,
    cuddly, cherubic Billy Sparks. He’d
    sell his mother if he thought he could
    make a buck.

    They size one another up in. about three
    seconds–

    VANITY

    BILLY
    Really…

    VANITY
    What time is it?

    BILLY
    Nine, sweets.

    VANITY
    Oh, that’s a really nice
    watch. Very pretty.

    Billy lights a cigarette, offers her
    one, she accepts–

    VANITY
    You look like a guy I used to
