Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Tuesday November 6th 2001
"Manhattan Party Planning," Tiffany said as she picked up the ringing phone on her desk where she worked in Greenwich Village.
"My love, so good to hear your voice," Amir said from his offices overlooking the Hudson River.
"Amir! You're home?" Tiffany said.
"Yes I just get here," he said in his broken English.
"How long can you stay?"
"This I do not know. I hope that I stay few months," he said as he looked through his messages that were stacked on his desk.
"I can't wait to see you," Tiffany said.
"This I live for," he said remembering their many intimate nights together.
"How is your wife?"
"Still in coma. Doctor at hospital say she may never recover."
"I'm so sorry. Are you going to leave her on the island or bring her back to this country?" she asked trying to sound genuinely concerned.
"For now I leave her there. Her family stay with her."
"Was it nice being home on the island?"
"Very nice. Good to be back in this country even in hard time, America great country," he said frowning as he saw messages that he should have been given hours ago.
"Did you meet Nicole yet?" Tiffany asked referring to the new secretary that Stanley had hired while Amir was gone.
"No I only come into office now. I spend all morning at City Hall," Amir said.
"Oh. I guess you'll meet her soon. I think Stanley is giving a party for you later."
"No one tell me of party," Amir said.
"Then please act surprised, so that I don't get in trouble for telling."
"I get how you say…Academy Award."
"It's great to have you back Amir. I've missed you so much."
"I miss you too and Starlene…how's your sister?"
"She's fine. Well… I'm a little worried," she admitted.
"I think maybe Stanley is going to get her a job modeling."
"This what she wish so long."
"Yeah, but I think it will be a job with Playbody like he got for Laney," she said referring to Stanley's former voluptuous young girlfriend.
"This bother you great deal, no?"
"Yes. Daddy will kill her."
"Maybe he find position for her modeling that she wear elegant clothes."
"I saw a message on Stanley's desk the other day and it said something about a layout for Miss February and Valentine's Day," Tiffany said.
Amir looked up through his open office door as he heard the sound of high heels in the hallway.
"Oh hi! You must be my new boss, Amir!" Nicole said eagerly.
"Hold one minute," Amir said placing his hand over the phone and smiling at the attractive dark haired young girl as she walked into his office.
"I'm Nicole. I thought you weren't coming in until later this afternoon," she said walking up to his desk in her short red dress and high heels.
"I arrive early to vote." Amir said referring to the NYC mayoral election.
"I can see you're on the phone. I can come back later so that we can get to know each other," Nicole said.
"Please… Sit down," he said waving his hand towards the chair in front of his desk.
"I call you back later," Amir said into the phone.
"Sure," Tiffany said having overheard every word.
Tiffany held the phone and listened as Amir slowly placed the phone on the receiver. She heard Nicole's young voice, "Wow I can't wait to tell my girlfriends that I met Amir today!"
