Gigi assembled her planners, her calendars, her pens, pouches, and post-its before her on the desk and stood over them like a general surveying maps. Gigi was going back to Paris for the first time since her marriage to Gaston failed. Gaston didn’t know how good he had it, being lucky enough to be the man that she chose to marry, and he reverted back to his old ways of making love to one woman after the next. Gigi became a world class ballerina and Gaston flirted with all of the other dancers, telling Gigi that he was just being friendly, but she caught her understudy and Gaston in a compromising situation backstage. Gigi always thought that her understudy Titania was a total sleaze bag, especially after she answered that dance audition which read, “Dance background a plus, and nudity and sexual situations a must.” Gigi exclaimed, “Thank God for good divorce attorneys.”
