Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Tuesday April 9th 2002
"Come on Skeeter let's go get coffee," Starlene said taking her estranged brother in law by the arm and attempting to distract him from the limo parked at the curb nearby. She glanced nervously at the familiar long white limo with her sister's lover Amir inside as the driver opened the back door. The driver glanced up recognizing Starlene and smiled.
"You know that guy?" Skeeter asked watching the limo driver.
"Yeah. Come on and I'll buy you coffee," she said tugging at Skeeter's sleeve.
"Whose limo is that?" Skeeter asked.
"You mean Tiffany's lover?" he asked turning to stare at the long white car.
"Come on Skeeter let's go get coffee," Starlene said pulling at his shirtsleeve.
The driver held open the door to the limo. Amir stepped out into the bright sunshine onto the sidewalk in front of Tiffany's apartment only a few feet from where Starlene stood with Skeeter.
"Starlene," Amir said smiling.
"Hi Amir," Starlene said nervously.
"Aren't you going to introduce me to my wife's lover," Skeeter asked.
"Come on Skeeter."
"No. I've been waiting for years for this opportunity," he said breaking free from her grip and walking towards Amir.
"Hay! Amir!" Skeeter called out as the doorman started to open the front door of the apartment building where Tiffany lived. Amir turned when he heard his name called.
"I want to talk to you man," Skeeter said rushing towards Amir.
"Mr. Hada. You want me to call…" the limo driver asked as Amir shook his head signaling for the driver to allow Skeeter to walk towards him.
"So you're Amir Hada," Skeeter said rushing towards the well-dressed handsome foreigner.
"Yes. I believe we never meet," Amir said in his broken English.
"No. We never met. But I believe you know my wife."
"You are Skeeter, no?" Amir said watching Starlene rushing towards the two men biting her lip.
"Yes. I'm Skeeter Diamond. Tiffany's husband," Skeeter said.
"Amir Hada," Amir said.
"I hear that your wife has come back to you," Skeeter said.
"Yes. She come out of coma after many years."
"And so now you're on your way up to my old ladies apartment?"
"I go to talk to Tiffany," Amir said as his driver came closer to his employer's side.
"So you got it all now don't you? You got your rich wife and my wife on the side."
"Mister Diamond, Tiffany is good friend. I come to talk to her only."
"Really? And you're going upstairs to be alone with my wife and talk to her. She's still married to me you know?"
A small group of people stopped on the sidewalk to watch the exchange between the celebrity foreigner and the angry husband.
"I believe it is best that we no further discuss this matter", Amir said starting to walk towards the front door of Tiffany's apartment building.
"I'll be the one that decides that," Skeeter said grabbing Amir's arm.
"Skeeter stop it," Starlene said.
"Mr. Hada. I call police," the driver said nervously rushing back to the long white car as more young students stopped on the sidewalk to watch.
