Story Card Edit
On the other end of the wire, Madra smiled. "How sweet. Reuben's taste is, I'm sure, as usual, impeccable."
She signed the contract without a glance, and at the first read-through, she headed for the chair marked "Mitzi"--and discovered a little poodle sitting there.
"Would someone PLEASE remove this flea-ridden little shedding machine from my chair?" Madra barked.
"But Miss Lord," quavered the assistant director. "That IS Mitzi--the best dog performer in the business. She's the star and you're playing her owner, a dizzy society dame who's the only one that Mitzi talks to."
"Talks to...ah-hah," Madra replied, not bothering to close her mouth after she said it. Madra turned to the pampered pup. "Mitzi, it's a pleasure," she said, voice dripping with sarcasm. "I just KNOW we'll become BEST girlfriends." Madra extended her paw to pet the pooch--and Mitzi snapped at it. "What a little darling," Madra smiled, baring her fangs.
Filming did go smoothly, but both Madra and Mitzi were relieved when it was over. Madra made her token appearance at the premiere. And the next morning...
Benny phoned in a state of joy. "Mitzi's a HUGE hit!! The studio's planning a SERIES! Isn't that great?"
Madra sat staring straight ahead, visualizing her future. And all that she said was, "Woof."
