the house on east 14th street,chapter 5

Chapter 5

Karagoz had had a number of bland escort jobs. Most were taking a classy lady to functions that socially required a male to escort. One or two mentioned that she was a personal friend of Susan Cabot but the escorting seemed innocent enough. Frankly, he thought, I’m getting horny.
The remodeling was moving along well. The front fire escape was in and passed inspection, and the back construction of porch/elevator was about complete.
. Sun-ja Park was cooking meals for Aimone with some regularity, sometimes sitting down and eating with him.(“Horney old goat”.) Thought Karagoz.
Cicero (the large gray Tom) , formerly a resident of Nigars’ dwelling, had decided he liked Karagoz better (better cat food?) and had been spending more time downstairs than up.

Mr. Jacobs called Aimone and told him that he just happen to be in the area, and would like to talk to Aimone about the banking that Jacobs had arranged for him. Rested and settled into his apartment , Aimone felt ready to proceed. Seated in the front room of Aimones’ apartment Jacobs said:
“to review,
I have opened an account for you here in the Chase Bank (amount, $394,000)
I have rented a bank box there and placed in it:
10 Peruzzi cut,53.77 carats, mixed colors ,diamonds
6 Peruzzi cut,33.73 carats fine, Alexandrite
9 Cabochons 17.48 carats, dark blue star sapphire
27, cabochons, 206.83carats red Carnelian
(the large” stone” is being cut into four stones of 80 ,27, 5 ,and 5carats each, this will take 6 months , at least.)
After this meeting we should go over to the bank and have you sign the necessary papers. The Chase is a good bank which has a Controversial history. Wikipedia has outlined some of it saying that before and during the early years of the war in Europe, the German government sold a special kind of Reichsmark, known as Rückwanderer [returnee] marks, to American citizens of German descent. Chase National Bank, along with other businesses, were involved in these transactions. Through Chase, this allowed Nazi sympathizers to purchase marks with dollars at a discounted rate. Specifically, "The financial houses understood that the German government paid the commissions [to its agents, including Chase] through the sale of discounted, blocked marks that came mainly from Jews who had fled Germany." In other words, Nazi Germany was able to offer these marks at a discount because the money had been stolen in the first place. From 1936 until 1941, the Nazis were able to bring in over $20 million, and the businesses enabling these transactions earned $1.2 million in commissions. Of these commissions, over $500,000 went to Chase National Bank and its subagents.
Perhaps I hold this against them because I am Jewish, but it is hard to find a bank that didn’t have such problems in their history so we need to move on. While I do strongly recommend you engage a financial consultant ,I do not recommend you use them, and they will certainly offer to provide them.
By the way, the house of savoy is paying my fees for aiding you.
If you will agree, I will find you an appropriate person.
There! That about covers it, what do you think?”
“I think I am swimming in waters much too deep for me, with the possibility that there could be sharks. No harm has yet come from the House of Savoy, nor from you, so I will hold on to the lifeboat that I am on. Let’s go sign those papers. I will await your recommendation for a person to help me.”


There was a tap at the door, and when Karagoz opened it Nigar smiled at him and said:
“Are you busy? if not could I come in?
Elizabeth Pierpont Lodge has enjoyed the escorting you have done with her, and would like you to escort her to a performance of ‘It’s going to get worse and worse and worse, my friend ‘ by Lisbeth Gruwez and Voetvolk.”
Karagoz smiled, Elizabeth was a society queen, and a lot of fun .. “sounds really strange. When and where?”
“in Troy, new York. It’s put on by EMPAC (The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center ). Elizabeth and Lisbeth are really good friends.it will be an extended escort, moving on to The French Quarter Festival. She would like to contract for additional services too. Are you interested in that?”
“Red heads seem to very popular this year” remarked Karagoz. “yes of course, you will work out the billing for this?”
“Yes it will be a pleasure’ said Nigar as she started for the door. “You move in high society very well”

Aimone looked at the sheet of paper that Eli had given him.
(a strange world we live in, he thought. Here I am a Christian , holding a vita about a Muslim,
recommended by a Jew to take my money ……..that very likely was stolen from a Jew.)

Dr. Chalabi has the training and drive to be a successful CEO. He wants to start up a foundation and head it (CEO). He lacks the financial means to do this. I suggest that you provide the necessary funds and be the chairman of the board of directors.
Born in Palestine, now nationalize a US citizen.
Let me know if this is acceptable, and if so, the details of incorporation.
An addition benefit from such an action is that Dr. Chalabi knows individuals who would be ready buyers in gemstones.
Your green card should be ready for you sometime this week

It had been a few days since Emerico Casas came to New York he finally had a week to look around .the operation here was uptown from where the company had booked him (The New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge ), but he found that the subway system was truly amazing., quick, clean, and easy to get anywhere.
Today he wanted to explore the” Heights “a little. At first he thought it would be an excellent place to rent a house, only to find that the ones he liked were way out of the question…too pricey!
He walked west towards the Promenade on Montague Street. What a view of lower Manhattan, east river, the docks, the harbor and even the statue of liberty. He sat, for a while on one of the benches that were placed along the promenade. It was a fresh clear day, and there were young mothers with noisy young children….really, all sorts of people just enjoying the day.
He walked north, towards the bridge,, passing “ the watchtower”, ended up in a little park and went over to orange street and walked east to Plymouth church, turned right on Hicks Street, down to Joralemon street, east to Starbucks and coffee.

It was a beautiful area, but too expensive for him. Tomorrow he would explore Greenwich Village, the Staten Island ferry, and the Juilliard School of Music, which, on line had five instructors who would be able to teach Eulalie piano, and were within his budget.

Mid-afternoon was always a quiet drowsy time in the house on east 14th. Karagoz had just returned from his rather extended “additional services” escort job with Elizabeth Pierpont Lodge. Surprising enough he had really enjoyed ‘It’s going to get worse and worse and worse, my friend ‘. He hadn’t realized that The French Quarter Festival was in New Orleans, but that was just a jump away in Elizabeth’s plane.
The buzzer sounded telling him Antonio was at the door. Antonio was going to plan the color scheme for the new breakfast nooks, and Karagoz let him in and took him through to it.
Antonio was in rare form, flitting from point to point, making dramatic sweeps of arms, descripting how “he would transform” the small rooms. Karagoz knew it would be a really nice job, Antonio was good. He also loved to gossip, telling Karagoz how he had just done Angela’s’ bedroom.
“I mean! The mirror above the bed is simply standard stuff! But I tell you the other little things…..well!”
Karagoz didn’t bother to stop him, and learned something new that day.

Send them to me and I'll host them on my website. Once I put the links in the story(stories) you can move them to their appropriate locations.
