Lies and Alibis


Carlotta and I sat in the tony new coffee shop... She smiled at me sweetly and leaned over and gave me a soft juicy kiss...I smiled at her and asked her..
"What was that for?"

"For not letting them rattle you yesterday with all that talk about you being whipped."she said.

"It's kind of true...I've never been swayed by any woman the way I am you...Everybody that knows me sees it." I said.

"The fact that you can admit something like that makes me love you even more...and it makes me very,very horny..."she said and kissed me again...this time longer...She was obviously remembering last night in the living room...So was I.

I smiled...

"For real Carlotta?" I asked.

"Yes..for real....For what it's worth,no guy...not even Mickey Lolo has made me feel like you make me feel.." she said staring into my eyes..

"Then why are we sitting here in this coffee shop? ,Let's go home....Just for an hour.."I said.

Carlotta broke out into laughter...

"You are serious aren't you?  I'd love to honey bunny....but we are waiting for Eva, remember? We are checking her alibi.." said Carlotta...

We were the only customers in the coffee shop so far...It had just opened...I pulled her off her stool and close to me and french kissed her..She returned my passion..kissing me for a long while and then she finally broke my embrace....

"Okay papi..that's enough...for now...I think somebody is coming in..." she said..

She was right ...It was Eva...
Eva greeted us with a smile...

"Carlotta....Keith Wallace right?" she said.

"Yes..that's right." I said..."Coffee?" I asked..

She produced a tumbler....

"I already have mine." she said.
''So What is this about ?" she asked.

"Uh Eva..Friday night after we saw you at Mulberry Street where did you guys go?" asked Carlotta..

"Valejo complained about having a headache...He drank too much rum he said...His friend, Tego drove me home...and I was there asleep the rest of the night...I had wanted him to come home with me...I had bought some sexy new lingerie and I was horny after drinking all of that Tequila..."  She said..She looked at me and caught herself...

"I'm sorry..." she said smiling...

I laughed..."That's okay...I hear a lot more." I said.


"I know Tego...Will he back up your story?" asked Carlotta.

"Yes...Am I in some kind of trouble?" she asked.

"No...Not at all." said Carlotta....

"Is this about Valejo?" she asked...

"Yes it is.. He told us he was with you all night." said Carlotta.

Eva looked distant...

"I've suspected that there was someone else.....for a long time...I've tried to ignore the signs.."she said.

''We don't know all of the particulars." said Carlotta..

"He has another cell phone...he forbade me to even touch it...He was talking to somebody on it...I suspected it might be another woman...he told me it was just business..confidential business." she said.

"Don't jump to conclusions...There might be a rational explanation to this."said Carlotta.

"Carlotta...I started dating Mickey Lolo after he broke up with you...but he was never really mine...You always had his heart...I could tell by the way he'd talk about you....I was just his rebound girl...He died ,loving you....I thought when I met Valejo that I had somebody who would love me...But even he has a side chick...a true love." said Eva...

"It takes time Mami....Took me a long time to find someone better than Mickey Lolo."said Carlotta, who looked at me and beamed...

We sat and drank coffee and chit chatted for about an hour...After Eva left...Carlotta went in the trash and took the styrofoam tumbler she drank from and put it in a plastic bag...

We found Tego and he backed up Eva's story...Valejo had asked him to drive her home, which he did and he sat with her for an hour talking and then left...

This cleared her for the murder...

II-

Hazel tested her DNA and fingerprints...lifted from the discarded tumbler of coffee Eva left behind...Her prints were not a match for any of the prints at Mindy Bridges home and neither was her DNA...This cleared her as a suspect completely...but it didn't clear Valejo...

"Lotta...Hop and I cleared just about everybody on her phone and Duke ran down the three girls that were in her home that night...and Rico helped us clear all of her social media contacts...so that leaves only two people...Swanson, Who Jimmy is running down and Valejo...." said Sirena.
"Duke and Rico did work ups on everybody...They were here most of the night...Hazel too..I doubt you'll see them today.." said Hop.


"Where is the boss lady?" I asked.

"She'll be in...She went to lunch with Angie.." said Sirena...."Thanks for doing that extra work for me Lotta...I'm going home...I was here all night with Duke,Hazel and my husband." said Sirena..
"Get some sleep lady..We got your back..We'll call you if anything comes up."said Carlotta.


"Okay...Cool." said Sirena as she left the office.

III-



Detective Jimmy Barlow was doing his best impression of my wife, Detective Carlotta Rodriguez-Wallace...He was already sitting in what the detectives called "The Fishbowl" or interrogation room waiting for Curtis Swanson, the number two man at Valejo Suarez's Distillery and Distributers..
Jimmy  sat alone in the fishbowl, looking over some case files as two uniformed policemen brought Jim Swanson in...

Curtis Swanson was tall, had blonde hair...a bit younger than Jimmy...and was dressed in Jeans and a Philadelphia Flyers T-shirt...he seemed pleasent enough..

He sat down took a seat and said nothing...Like Carlotta, Jimmy took his time before he addressed him...Then finally he looked up and smirked a bit...

"Curtis Swanson.....My name is... Detective Jimmy Barlow.."said Jimmy...

Curt Swanson said nothing...

"Usually we don't get people to come down here and talk to us on their day off when there is no charge...So I gotta think you're some kind of special." said Jimmy...

''Well usually you probably don't have two big cops in a squad car come to your door and persuasively ask you to come down here on your day off with no charge either." he retorted..

Jimmy laughed...So did Curtis Swanson...

"Touche....So listen...I know you've heard by now that Mindy Bridges was murdered over the weekend..." said Jimmy...

"Yeah man....I heard...She was a nice girl....I liked her...She worked for me.." he said.

"When did you last see her?" asked Jimmy...

"Just hours before she died...At work Friday...When she clocked out.." he said.

"Were you two close?" asked Jimmy.

"She worked for me...She was like a book-keeper slash administrative assistant...I don't know where I'm going to find another one...We uh had lunch a few times...I stopped by her place once or twice...I uh seen her out at Aqua Bar and Roxys a few times....but it didn't go further than that." he said.

"I see you follow her on Twitter and Instagram and were Facebook friends.."said Jimmy..

"Yeah..we were cool." he said.

"She ever mention a boyfriend?" asked Jimmy...

"No...but everybody knew she was seeing somebody...She just wouldn't reveal who...Was very secretive about it...She kept two phones..One was her main phone and the other was the phone he ,whoever he was gave her...She would always call him on that phone in private...You know in the ladies room,out in the parking lot...We knew...but we didn't know who he was. I had my idea on who it might be" he said.

"And who might that be?" asked Jimmy...

"I'm thinkin it might be the boss...Valejo...Although I never seen them together, but once....About six months ago at a pool party, slash fund-raiser at Rollie Rollerson's house...They were pretty cozy in the pool...We all were..Lots of drinkin, weed smokin..Everybody was kind of loose...You know the deal...Shortly after that party...I noticed she had two cell phones and she guarded that second phone like Fort Knox..Wouldn't explain why she had it and always talked on just that phone out in the parking lot...It was weird...but I didn't pay much attention to it." he said.

"So what did you do Friday Night?" asked Jimmy...

"I went to Roxy's watched the game...had a couple of cold ones and left about 11:00, went home...that was my night." he said.

"You don't have a girl?" asked Jimmy...

"Not at the present time...but I've seen your girl..." he said looking at Jimmy slyly..

"You have?" asked Jimmy..

"Yeahh..I saw you two in Roxys...and I saw you at Stoleys another time...I knew when I saw you I had seen you before...Just didn't know where...I remembered you because , well...your girlfriend is Black..." he said..."But she's got some curves on her...I totally understand.."he added...

Jimmy smiled...He smiled....

"Okay man...Well thanks for the talk...One of the officers will escort you out...They'll take you home." said Jimmy...

"Nice meetin you man...Maybe we can knock back a few drinks...I'm a regular at Roxys and Stoleys." he said..

"That'll work" said Jimmy....They shook hands...

"Look at that...There's your girl right there....Is that your boss with her?" asked Swanson...

"Yeah." said Jimmy....

He looked at Sissy and Angie and then peeped at Carlotta standing by the side...

"You got nothin but babes working here.....Not a bad assignment.." he said and smiled.

While they were talking...Sissy and Angie  had walked in..




 "Hey guys..."said Angie..

"Hey Angie...Sissy"I said.
 "Hey Chica..Keith..."said Sissy..."Jimmy is interviewing Swanson I see." she observed..
 Sissy observed everything going on around her...That was what made her such a great detective....

''Yes.. And I interviewed Eva this morning...Apparently Valejo lied to us...His Alibi didn't stick...He was not with her after we saw him at the club Friday night.."said Carlotta..

FBI SAC,Sharon Hopkins walked in just then...She had some glossies in her hands...
"Hey guys...Duke, Rico and my husband were lucky last night...I knew they were too tired to wait around...but I told them I'd show this to you...They got a hit on an ATM machine camera just three blocks from Mindy Bridges house..Look who's in the photo...Valejo Suarez....and it's time stamped...That's 2:45 am...Saturday Morning....Then he's at the Gas station...He was caught on this camera at 2:52 am getting gas..and that's him on the crime stopper camera walking down her street and her letting him in...He was at her house...Oh and that finger print? The one we couldn't match...It's his!! He has a misdemeanor charge from three years ago....He was in a bar fight and was finger printed when he was arrested at the time..It's a match!" she said.

''Sirena,Hop,Duke and Tyriq all went home..They were here all night...So was Hazel...Chica ,you want to pick him up?" asked Sissy.


"No problem Boss Lady...She can interview him in the morning..." said Carlotta...who strapped on her kevlar and her holster...''This hurts my boobs." she joked..

''I know right? You want some company Carlotta..Jimmy is busy...I got nothing to do." said Angie.


''Sure" said Carlotta, who kissed me....

"I don't want them saying you are whipped...Wait here for me okay?" she said and gave me a passionate kiss.
''Sure " I said and watched as they both gathered three uniformed policemen and took off...

Sissy looked at me...I expected a smart remark about me and Carlotta's PDA just now..but she didn't say anything...I guess it was just too easy..

"So..What do you think?" she said-"About the case?"she continued, not cracking a smile..

"I like this Valejo person for the murder...He lied about knowing her,He lied about his whereabouts..Lied to his girlfriend and his fingerprints prove he was there...He's our guy.."I said.
"Yeah..I think you're right...This was an easy one.." she said.

"Yeah..We deserve an easy one every now and then.." I said.

What I didn't know was how wrong I was..

Trojan


 Tuesday Morning...Two days after our latest murder and I found myself sitting in the office of Homicide Lt. Sissy Van Buren....sipping a tumbler of coffee...

"So Miss Van Buren...You are getting ready to be a married lady soon." I said.

Sissy just gushed...

"Yes...and I can finally have a normal sounding last name...During my first marriage I was Sissy Foxworth...Godddd,I hated that...Now I'll be Mrs. Sissy Clarke..I can't wait.."she said.
"I'm happy for you...You deserve it...You've been through a lot and you deserve a good guy...I believe you have one.."I said.

"I think so...I was wondering if I was ever going to get married...You and Carlotta, Duke and Hazel, Hop and Sharon all got married last year and then Jimmy and Angie got engaged...I was beginning to feel some kind of way..."she said.

"By the way...When are they gettin married?" I asked.

"Next Month...They're going to beat Carol Redding and Ed Cantrell....So are Eddie and I...I'm waiting until Angie and Jimmy return from their honeymoon and then Eddie and I are getting married."she said.

"Angie is your maid of honor!" I said.


"Nooooooo..." she said.

"Oh, Carlotta..."I said.

"Believe it or not...Noooo again...I love Angie and Carlotta so much that I can't choose between them so I asked Hazel to be my maid of honor." she said.

"Wow! "I said.

"They both know...It's already been discussed and they're good with it.." she said.

"You know I'm the best man?" I said.

Sissy laughed...

"No I didn't know that." she said....

"I'm talking about for Jimmy...You're Angie's Maid of Honor...We'll be walking down the aisle together..."I said.

"Didn't we do this before?" she asked.

"Yeah, years ago at Sgt. Sanchez's wedding..." I said.

"Wow!  and that creep was cheating on his wife with uh, your future wife..We didn't know her then and she didn't know he was married."said Sissy..

"How about that..Funny how things turn out huh?" I said.

"Yeah." said Sissy, smiling.

II-
Carlotta walked in the office with Jimmy and Tyriq just then...Sissy smiled..

"Just talking about you chica." she said.

"Well,I hope it was good." she said...

"Of course."said Sissy..

"Rico,Jimmy and I interviewed everybody at Juarez distillery and distributers concerning Mindy Bridges.."she said ,then walked over to me, gave me a nice wet ,sloppy kiss and sat on my lap..

"All of the employees except two...The boss, Vallejo and his assistant...They weren't in, but we'll catch up with them....Everybody said that Mindy was the nicest person you'd ever want to meet..didn't have an enemy in the world. She obviously had one enemy,whoever killed her."said Tyriq...


"She didn't have a boyfriend either or none that anybody ever saw....One girl said that she was on her cell phone a lot...Texting and giggling like a school girl when she did talk, but that other than that...They had no idea of who she was talking to and never saw him." said Jimmy.

"Did anybody check her financials?" asked Sissy..
"I did Boss Lady...Her credit cards were paid off completely after the first of the year and every month after that.....Her bank account and her debit card was solid...Here is the funny thing...She got an infusion of cash into her account every month...It was to pay her credit cards and her utility bills...The money was wired from a company account and not by her.."said Hop ,who had just entered the office.
"So she's got a boyfriend...It's just nobody has seen him...And it's somebody in that company."I said.
"Well, my guess is...it's one of two people...The two people you haven't interviewed yet." said Sirena..

"It can't be Vallejo..He's engaged.."said Carlotta.

"You know him Top?" asked Tyriq...
"No...but I know the woman he is engaged to...Eva Dominguez...Keith and I ran into both of them at Mulberry Street, Friday Night." she said.

Hazel walked into the office soon after....
"I've got a lot of prints.... Most of them are hers...there were three other sets...and they belong to three girls that were her close friends...My husband is running them down."said Hazel...."There was no sign of forced entry..She let her killer in.."said Hazel....

III-

Duke and Sharon walked in shortly afterwords....The gang was all here...

"Hey guys...I interviewed those three girls...They were all at her place earlier..and they said she was in an upbeat mood...They had been shopping and she had purchased some sexy lingerie...Apparently she and this mystery man were supposed to meet sometime that night...Which is why they all left early...None of them had ever met him and she would n't so much as give them a name...She only reffered to him as Trojan. She said he was a , Get this...Horse in a world of ponies..."said Duke laughing.

"Trojan?? Ummmph...."said Sirena and Carlotta in unison....Sissy spit her coffee out laughing....

"I'm still having trouble tracking down that number on the burner phone.."said Sharon..

"Hop and I and Jimmy will interview all of the people on the regular phone...See what we can find.."said Sirena as she, Hop and Jimmy left..

Carlotta looked at Tyriq...

"Come on Rico...let's go find Vallejo...I think I know where he might be."said Carlotta.
"Lead the way Top."said Tyriq.
Carlotta looked at me...

"Coming Honey Bunny?" she asked...

"Uhh yeah...Of course." I said.

Sissy shook her head and laughed...

"You are sooo whipped..." she said...
I couldn't argue with her...It was true.

IV-
Carlotta directed us to the Condo where Valejo Juarez lived.....I was surprised....

 "You knew where he lived all along?" I asked..a little curious.
"Yes...He's in the news quite a bit...The Latino news...He's a very popular businessman and philantropist..So yes...everybody in my old neighborhood knows where he lives." she said.

Tyriq laughed....

''Leave it alone Keith...women make their mental notes of certain things...Like rich men." he said.

Carlotta looked at Rico...

"You're not helping partner... "she said..."Yes..I knew who he was the minute Eva pointed him out...and like most people in my neighborhood..I knew where he lives..."she said sweetly and leaned over and kissed me..



 I smiled...

"I was just asking...I mean ,it's no thing.." I said.
Tyriq just laughed and shook his head...

"You my friend are so whipped." he said...

Second time in one hour I had heard that.

"He is not whipped...He loves his wife and he has every reason to." said Carlotta..

"Is that right?" laughed Tyriq...

"That is right...because his wife loves him very much,very, very much and all the time!" she said with a sly smile..

Tyriq let up...

"Can't argue with that." he said.

Valejo Juarez answered the door in his bathrobe....He smiled as soon as he took a look at Carlotta...Upon seeing me and Tyriq and  seeing the badges...His smile dropped.
''I remember you from Mulberry Street the other night....You had on that super hot leather mini skirt...and those black stillettos..." he said staring at Carlotta slaciously... ''Is this your boyfriend?" he asked.


''This is my husband and he is an Assistant District Attorney...."said Carlotta proudly.

'I'm Assistant District Attorney, Keith Wallace." I said.

"Okayyyyy..cool...I saw you two making out....I can certainly understand why...You got a hot wife if I don't say so myself papi...Good job man." he said.

"My wife is a Homicide Detective" I said.

''Ahhhh,okay....cool...I saw you talking to Eva...I had no idea you were a cop...What's this about?" he asked.

Tyriq showed him a photo of the slain Mindy Bridges with a plastic bag around her head...
"Do you know her?" asked Tyriq...

He looked a little shocked at first...then he slowly got himself together...There was a long pause...then he said.

''No."

"Funny you would say that because she works for you...She's an administrative assistant..at your company."said Tyriq..

"Yeah....I hardly ever go down there...I go once or twice a month to check the books..My number two man Curt Swanson does the day to day work." he said.

"Where were you early Saturday morning?" I asked..


He smiled incredulously...

"You know where I was...Same place you and your missus were ...At Mulberry Street.." he said.
"Yes ,but after two...after closing." asked Carlotta...

He smiled...

"I took Eva home....Like you, she had drank a lot of Tequila.....You know what I'm sayin? Hahahahaha...We went home and well, I don't have to tell you how that went..." he said.

V-
Back at C.I.D. ,Hours later ...We sat around the table with the rest of the team...

 "We talked to everybody on that list....On her regular phone and we got the same thing...Sweet girl, no enemies..No boyfriend.."said Hop..
 ''Yeah..on that phone...but on her other phone...there is only one number...and it is the same number and nobody answers on the other end...No voicemail, no nothing.."said Sirena...

 "I looked at her Facebook Pages, her Twitter pages, Her instagram pages and her Pintrest pages and Jimmy and  I tracked down and made contact with all of her friends..We got the same thing and we got no movement or messages of any kind to any boyfriend and no mention of one.."said Duke..

"Whoever her boyfriend was....She didn't want anyone to know about it...Maybe he's married.."said Jimmy.
 "I did get some finger prints...We can rule out four of the five sets of prints and the prints of the victim...but there is a palm print and another set of prints that don't seem to be those of anybody we know...I gave them to Sharon." said Hazel.
 ''Negative...I ran em through your decks and through VICAP...They don't belong to anybody we have in the system which means your doer doesn't have a record... I did however get into her website and to borrow Sirena's saying...Here is where it gets cute....You said that one of the girls said she reffered to her mystery man as "Trojan"  Well when I went into one of her websites...Only one...look whose face popped up...The guy you three have been talking to all afternoon." said Sharon...

It was Valejo Juarez!!!
"Wellll, looks like she was sleeping with the boss man." said Sissy...

''He said he didn't know her...Even though she works for him...Said he barely goes to the factory..."said Tyriq..
"He also said that he went home with Eva after they left Mulberry Street club the other night...I'm going to go see Eva and check out his Alibi." said Carlotta..

"Eva Dominguez?? She's going out with Valejo Suarez?" said Sharon...

''Wow...She always was upward and onward." said Hop.

"You guys know them?" I asked..

''We all grew up together ...After Carlotta and Mickey Lolo broke up, Eva was uh waiting in the wings for him....It was a rumor that she had been Minolo Senttero's girl too..." said Hop...
"Baby..."said Sharon...

Carlotta smiled...
"It's okay...I knew all about it..I'm so over all of that...I'm going to see Eva tomorrow and check out his alibi." said Carlotta...

"I'll check out Swanson...His number two guy."said Jimmy.
"Good Work...Maybe we'll crack this thing by mid week and can get to some important things like picking out dresses for some weddings.." laughed Sissy...

Hazel, Carlotta,Sirena,Sharon and Sissy all laughed and clapped..

I smiled...

"We'll see you good folks later" I said, putting my arms around Carlotta and heading for the door.
VI-


Carlotta seemed dead tired when we arrived at home that night...but I wasn't...I think she could see it in my eyes...She took her holster off and put her pocketbook down...She smiled at me and took her shoes off and walked over to me and planted a wet sloppy kiss on my lips...

''Ummmmmmm, you like that papi?" she said..

"I certainly do.What was that for?" I said.

"Because I know you like it." she said smiling...

I pulled her to me and began kissing her...Long, sloppy ,wet kisses...She returned my passion...I eased her over to the sofa and slowly mounted her ,kissing her like it was going out of style...We eventually rolled on to the floor....

We both laughed.....


''Let me take my skirt off first papi." she said ,smiling... I watched her as she stumbled to her feet and unzippered her skirt and took it off and folded it neatly and laid it on the couch...I amazingly had my shoes, trousers and shirt and socks off and was already on her kissing her passionately again...She broke our embrace and laughed...Her long hair just falling into her face...I unhooked her bra and slipped her panties off..She stared at me so intensely it nearly scared me...and then we began hungrily kissing each other again...


''Not so bad being whipped eh?" she said.


"Not when I'm getting all of this good stuff.." I said...


Carlotta blushed..and continued kissing me..




We stood there in the middle of the floor kissing and fondling each other for the longest time...

Carlotta was so soft, smelled so naturally good and had surprisingly soft kisses that seemed to evaporate into thin air...She was like a drug and I was hooked on her...

I laid Carlotta across our couch...I pressed the head of my pulsing penis into her dripping wet vagina, then pulled out again.She moaned..."Ohhhh, papi...ouuuuuuuuuuuu."

I entered her several more times like this, until I could feel her pushing harder and harder against me. I grabbed her hips, and pushed all the way into her. She gasped,

''OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MY GAWDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD! OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU.Ayyyyye MIOS DIOS!!!"she moaned..

Carlotta moaned softly as the couch began to squeak and slam against the wall...
''Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...""Ohhh doddy, give it to meeeeee....ummmmmmph...Ouuuuuuuuuuu..I needed this...I needed this...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh papi...ohhhhhhhhh give it to mami"she moaned.

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... Carlotta...Carlotta baby......ouuuuuuuuuu, more, more... ohhhhhh..."I moaned as I moved in and out of her...

"Yessss.....ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... ....ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu sweet sweet papi,ohhhhhhhhhhhh my godddddddddddd..ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....Aye Papi"she moaned.

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh gooooddddddd lawdd it's soooo goood...ohhhhhhh..ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh sweeeeet baby yessssssssssssssss."I cried ...out!!"Morrre...Morreee....morrre...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh."I screamed..

We sounded like Lt. Cantrell and Carol Redding almost... I now perfectly understood... When loving was this good, you had to cry out!

We made crazy,passionate and intense love on that couch for five  or six hours...with no sign of stopping...The couch squeaked something crazy....and slammed violently against the wall..The legs of the couch creaking......the two of us laughing, moaning, kissing.....Carlotta whispering something in spanish in my ear and me getting more and more excited...

We both climaxed together...violently and falling off the couch on to the carpeted floors...

''Wow!" I said...

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu papi,That was amazing." said Carlotta ,who gave me a sweaty kiss...and laughed heartily..
Carlotta continued kissing my chest and my neck and eventually my lips...I strangely enough found myself thinking about this case...Well just a little bit...This didn't seem like one of our more sensational murder cases...but something told me there was more to it than what met the eye.

I leaned over and kissed Carlotta again....It was going to be a longggg night....

I'd have to worry about it further at another time obviously.

TO BE CONTINUED!
