Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Wednesday November 12th 2003
"Amir, would you like another drink?" Clark asked taking Amir by the arm and turning him towards the back of the restaurant hoping he wouldn't see that his lover Tiffany was talking with Brandon Douglas.
"No. I have drink," he said in his broken English holding up his glass for Clark to see.
"Tell me about what you've been doing," Clark said holding his wealthy client's arm as he stood beside him.
"My spa keep me very busy for months. I hope to hire manager and spend time here with Tiffany," Amir said smiling as he wondered why Clark would insist that they ignore the party guests.
"That's great. Then you plan to stay in New York more?"
"This I hope," he said in his broken English as he started to turn around and walk back to the table.
"Why don't we go downstairs where we can talk privately," Clark suggested.
"To kitchen... no. I call you tomorrow. We have dinner one evening," Amir said turning around to see his lover Tiffany exchanging words with Brandon Douglas across the room.
"This why you want me to go downstairs... no?" Amir asked.
"Yes. I'm sorry Amir. I think there was a little mix up. Nicole invited Brandon tonight. She didn't know that Tiffany had invited you," Clark said as he noticed the strained expressions on Tiffany and Brandon's faces when they glanced across the room and saw Amir watching them.
"I see this," Amir said taking a sip of his drink and watching.
"I know Tiffany is very embarrassed about this," Clark said.
"She... how you say... see Brandon while I go to my island?" Amir asked.
"Yes, I guess so. I don't want to get into the middle of this. You know it's been hard for her with you being gone so much," Clark said regretting his involvement as he searched for the right words.
"Yes. I see," Amir said putting his drink on a nearby table.
"What are you going to do?" Clark asked as Amir took a couple of steps forward.
"I make everyone more comfortable," he said walking past the table of guests as a hush fell over the room. One of the photographers for the party snapped pictures as the guests watched. Tiffany and Brandon stopped talking and stared as Amir walked towards them.
"Hello Tiffany," Amir said.
"Hi Amir. This is Brandon Douglas," Tiffany said. "He's a friend of mine," she added noticing that everyone in the restaurant was watching them.
"It is pleasure to meet you," Amir said extending his hand towards Brandon.
"Hello," Brandon said shaking Amir's hand reluctantly.
Amir released Brandon's hand and turned to look at Tiffany. There was a rush of whispers at the table behind them as the guests listened and speculated what would happen next.
"Tiffany, I regret I must leave. I wish you and your lovely sister Starlene to have wonderful time," he said kissing her lightly on the cheek.
"Amir," she said as he took a couple of steps forward to leave.
"Pleasure to meet you Mr. Douglas," Amir said as he turned and walked quickly towards the front of the restaurant.
The camera flashes blinded Tiffany as she turned to look towards the table of guests as Brandon's fingers dug into the skin on her arm. "Come on Tiffany, it's your sister's party," he said pulling her towards the table. She glanced back towards the front of the restaurant and saw her lover Amir leaving without turning to look her way.
