"Okay, can you remember the first words you exchanged when you first met Frank?" I went into interview mode.

"You sound like a fucking reporter."

"I am a fucking reporter, Ava. Indulge me."

She looked pensive, and sipped her drink. “I was with Mickey in the studio commissary. We had just gotten married. Frank came over to our table- Jesus, he was like a god in those days, if gods can be sexy. A cocky god, he reeked of sex- he said something banal, like ‘If I had seen you first, honey, I’d have married you myself.’ I paid no attention to that. I knew he was married. He had a kid, fahcrissake! He was a terrible flirt. He couldn’t help it. That was the first time we met.”
