Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Wednesday July 4th 2001
Tiffany watched in horror as the TV reporters and cameras raced towards Amir's waiting limousine at the curb in front of her apartment across the street from Washington Square Park.
"Stop them Starlene," Tiffany said nervously.
"They're here to interview me. This is ruining everything", Starlene said pulling the top of her strapless summer dress up to cover her voluptuous full bosom.
"Ask them to come back over here," Tiffany said as she watched the cameras buzzing around her secret lover's car.
"Hay fellows, come back over here," Starlene called out in her southern accent. She watched as the reporters stood in front of the limo. All of the dark windows remained closed.
Amir watched the screen of his television set in the back of the limo as the scene unfolding on the sidewalk was being broadcast live.
"Maybe we ride around block," the limo driver suggested.
"How they know this my car? This I never understand," Amir said in his broken English as the cameras turned towards Starlene and Tiffany on the sidewalk a few feet away from his car. Amir's pulse quickened when he saw the low cut short dress Tiffany was wearing revealing her shapely familiar figure.
"Never have sisters created so much uproar in the city of New York since the Gabor sisters years ago," the reporter said as the cameras zoomed in on the low cut dresses of the two blonde sisters standing side by side in front of Tiffany's apartment building.
"Do you want me to speak to them?" the driver asked Amir.
"Yes. Tell them they leave," Amir said.
"What if they ask me if you're in the car?"
"You tell them no comment... that they only leave," Amir said.
The driver opened the door of the limo and quickly closed it walking around the long white car to the other side where the reporters were taking a break during commercial.
"I ask you to leave please," the driver said.
"Isn't that Amir in the car here to pick up Tiffany?" the reporters asked.
"No. No comment. You leave now," the driver said.
"It's a free country. Haven't you heard about freedom of the press," the cameraman said.
"Only I say you leave," the driver repeated.
"How can Mr. Hada be here to pick up a single woman like Tiffany when his wife just regained consciousness last night," the reporter said sticking the microphone in the face of the driver.
"No comment I tell you only that you leave now," the driver said noticing in horror that the camera was live and that their conversation was being broadcast.
"If Mr. Hada isn't here to pick up Tiffany Diamond then surely he wouldn't mind talking with us. He's running for mayor of the city," the reporter said.
"Please I ask that you leave," the reporter repeated firmly.
The TV show "Go Gossip" returned live after commercial break. Amir watched as the incident outside the tinted windows came on the screen of his television in the back of his limo.
The reporter reached forward and tapped on the window of the limo. "Mr. Hada can we have a few words with you about your sick wife," the reporter asked as the cameras narrowed in on the dark window of the limo.
"Mr. Hada has nothing to say," the driver said.
"Oh! So it is Mr. Hada in the back of the car!" the reporter said smiling from ear to ear.
"Leave now, or I call police," the driver said shoving the reporter on the shoulder and pushing him forward as he fell onto the dark window of the long white car.
Amir heard the thump on the window as the body of the reporter hit the dark window. He glanced at the television screen as the camera zoomed in on the reporter's face as he cried out in pain. "This is Eric with 'Go Gossip', I think you are watching a law suit in action. Mr. Hada is in the back of this car while his secret lover waits on the sidewalk for him and his sick wife is alone in her hospital bed. His driver has just accosted me. I ask you should this man be the mayor of our city?" he asked as the cameraman turned to zoom in on Tiffany's low cut dress.
