"Clark, I was on my way downtown and thought I would stop by," Stanley Morgan said taking a seat on the sofa in Clark's townhouse.
"Would you like something to drink?" Clark offered.
"No, thanks. Where's Tiffany?" Stanley asked looking around the room.
"Jan didn't tell you?" Clark stalled.
"No. I haven't seen or heard much from Jan lately. I've been wondering if maybe she's found herself a boyfriend," Stanley said laughing.
"Tiffany doesn't work here anymore," Clark said.
"What? When did this happen?"
"Last week," Clark said assuredly. Jan had been so adamant that he fire Tiffany that Clark was sure Stanley would be relieved to hear this news as well.
"I'm shocked!" Stanley said watching Clark's smug expression.
"I really thought Jan would have told you."
"No. I had no idea. What happened?" he asked thinking that surely a beautiful woman like Tiffany had been offered a job modeling.
"I had to let her go."
"You fired her?"
"She brought her personal life into my business too much," Clark said starting to feel a little uncomfortable as he watched the shock on Stanley's face.
"You mean with her husband being suspected in the shooting of Amir's bodyguard?"
"Yeah, that's one of the biggest reasons."
"But she couldn't help that. Besides her husband was cleared of all charges and he's her ex-husband anyway," Stanley said.
"Some people thought maybe Tiffany became too personally involved with the clients though," Clark said surprised that he felt the need to defend himself.
"Well, Jan for one", Clark said wondering how this would go over with her Father.
"Jan's just a little jealous of Tiffany. Jan's jealous of all women. You shouldn't have paid too much attention to her opinion," Stanley said shaking his head.
"She seemed upset over Tiffany from the first day. I just thought there was too much friction between the two of them," Clark said starting to feel tension in the back of his neck.
"I'm sorry you let Jan influence your decision. Jan's tried to get my secretaries fired since she was a little girl. She's my Daughter but she's very jealous natured. Oh well, do you know if Tiffany found something else yet?"
"No. I don't know."
"Where's she living now?"
"She's got an apartment right here at Washington Square Park."
"Really. Not bad for a little girl without a job".
"I think a friend is putting her up until she finds another place."
"Oh. I see," Stanley said rubbing his chin. Maybe Tiffany had more going on than he ever realized.
"She shouldn't have too much trouble finding another job," Clark said.
"Maybe I could help her out. Do you have her phone number?" Stanley asked.
"No but she's coming by to pick up her vacation pay in a few minutes."
