Lower Manhattan, Broadway and Prince Street- Friday.
After almost forty minutes Bette, Alice, James, and Helena entered in Aaron’s office. Bette looked at Tina, who was sitting there, but the blonde turned her face away, Bette closed her eyes and turned to Aaron.
Bette: “hello, everybody, what’s the problem, here?”
Aaron: “good afternoon Dr. Porter, I’m sorry if I took you from your job in the central building, but I need you to tell them that you have authorized me to investigate about corruption in this branch”
Joyce: “he’s accusing my client”
Bette: “Dr. Kennard?”
Tina: “I don’t understand, are you giving him the authorization to investigate himself?”
Alice and Helena laughed.
Bette: “please Dr. Kennard…”
Aaron: “you heard her, she is disrespectful”
Bette: “okay, we stop that here…, what’s the problem, Aaron?”
Aaron: “I found proof that Miss Kennard is cheating on the company”
Joyce: “you haven’t shown that”
Bette: “stop, everybody stop; Aaron, I don’t see the point of summoning Dr. Kennard, it’s not your call to judge her”
Aaron: “I’m the director of the branch; I have authority to call her to my office”
Bette: “what for? Remember that you have a sexual harassment accusation pending, you can’t appoint her here without her lawyer, and perhaps yours too”
Aaron: “I wanted to warn her…”
Bette: “no, it’s a waste of time…, and your meeting with her is over”
Aaron was astonished, but he let it go.
Aaron: “okay…, this meeting is over, Kennard, Joyce, you can leave”
Bette: “I’ll stay”
Alice: “we’ll stay too”
Bette: “no, just wait outside”
Helena: “are you sure?”
Tina and Joyce left the office of the director followed by Alice Helena and James; they met Sharon who was outside. Inside the office, Bette warned Aaron.
Bette: “okay, let me tell you something here Aaron, you could do any investigation, but given the circumstances, you can’t accuse anybody, if you find information, you send it to us, and we are going to decide if there is or not proof enough to take any decision”
Aaron: “but I have proof”
Bette: “well, send whatever you have to us and we’ll decide; so, we don’t need to come here, Aaron, you should use and email, why did you call us?”
