Lincoln Square, West Side, later same day
Bette has arrived two hours ago from the meeting with Aaron and Tina in Lower Manhattan, she is drinking her green tea with Alice and Helena, they all are waiting for a call, though the chair of the mediation committee has her mind somewhere else; suddenly Alice phone rings.
The blonde is carefully listening to whoever is talking on the other side of the line.
Alice: “the bird is in the cage, perfect, he doesn’t suspect…, oh, he even doesn’t remember, perhaps he thinks it was real…, thanks, Tasha, I own you this one”
Helena: “is he in jail?”
Alice: “yup, we’ve made a fine work, Bette”
Bette was surprised when she heard her name; her mind has been all this time remembering her argument with Miss Kennard…, that blonde is even more beautiful when she’s angry, bold and demanding… yes, she had to control herself when Dr. Kennard called her ‘fucking bitch’ … the only thing Bette could do was to hold the blonde by her forearm, she wanted to pull her and kiss her, but she had to refrain herself ….and those last words she said ‘whether you want it or not, we’ll talk’… ‘we’ll talk’ when what her heart wanted to shout was ‘we’ll kiss’… ‘fuck, Dr. Kennard, how much I want to kiss you’
Bette: “what did you say, Alice?”
Alice: “the picture that we gave to Tasha worked, the lawyer and Aaron, they didn’t find it was doctored, you made a good photomontage”
Bette: “good, it will give us an advantage over him”
Helena: “what now?”
Bette: “according to the plan, Tasha will make an investigation on the picture and the veracity of it will be inconclusive, they will release Aaron under the bait and his reputation in the company will be in question, he won’t dare to bother other women there”
Alice: “and we’ll make him understand that he’s under watch in the company”
Helena: “are you gonna tell him that?”
Bette: “no, we’ll question him and make him sign a commitment document; he will know that he must behave or he will be back in jail”
Helena: “okay, that solves the problem about sexual harassment, what about the project?”
