Off The Back Burner

 ONE MONTH LATER-


I awoke from a peaceful sleep to see my pretty little wife of a few months and her identical twin  sister both sitting on the bed...



Monica smiled and kissed me softly...

''Good morning partner.." she said....

"Morning....Did I miss anything?" I asked...

"Yup..We had a threesome...and you slept through it...Good Morning Brother in law.." joked my sister in law, Monique...who leaned down and kissed my cheek softly...

"Awww man.." I said with fake disappointment..

''We were discussing this case...The bones....We got next to nothing you know..."said Monica...

"This case is really eating him up...He hasn't been by in about three days now and he hasn't even stopped by the M.E.'s office...That's not like him at all.."said Monique..

"It's almost to the point of a personal vendetta.."said Monica..

It had been almost a month now since we had discovered the skeletal remains of a man and woman at the pier..The case was currently on the back burner.
Monica and I had cracked three big murder cases in the meanwhile..

And even though this case was colder than the Antarctic..Lieutenant Cotton wouldn't let us take it off of the murder board..It was keeping us from having 100 percent clearance...Which we had enjoyed since we had been working together..Monica and I desperately wanted this case off the back burner and closed, but for different reasons than our esteemed Lieutenant. For him, it was personal.

Our only lead...Dr. Harvey had taken Mrs. Rodgers's medical files with him and they had been incinerated in a fiery car crash along with him...We had identified the one set of bones...Robert Flynn,whose sister and other family members had taken them and had had a funeral for him and buried him...

We still had the bones of a young woman, who was known only as "Jane Doe"lying in the morgue...Monica and I and occassionally Kylie White spent our spare time looking at missing persons files of women who vanished during that time frame in which Robert Flynn was last seen alive..and it had led us nowhere..

Just like this case...

''Without proof that is in fact Antoinette Rodgers 's body in your morgue ,we have no grounds for an exhumation order..."I said.

"Frankie's been to two ADA's and a Judge and nobody wants to touch this...He's close to being charged with harrassment..I'm afraid he may need psychiatric attention soon...I've never seen him so obsessed with anything.....Other than me.."said Monique..

"I keep thinking there is something we are missing here..."I said..

"I have an idea.." said Monica..

"I'm open to anything.."said Monique..

"What if I can get you Aja's DNA?  You could compare it against the bones you have in the morgue and know if that is in fact her birth mother couldn't you?" asked Monica..

"She'd never consent to a swab.."I said.

"We've gotten DNA from a person before without their consent...I'm sure Aja eats somewhere, drinks somewhere...Works out in a gym or something..." said Monica..

I smiled..

"She is soo smart...I am so turned on by her mind.." I said.

Monique looked at me...

"Are you sure that's what it is? You were hot for my sister before she opened her mouth....But yeah sis, that is a good idea...You get a sample and if I get a match....then we'll know for sure if the bones I have belong to Antoinette or if they belong to some stranger..."said Monique...

"Then maybe once and for all we can put this to rest." I said.

"Yess.." said Monica.

II-

 As we spoke, our Lieutenant was halfway across the city in a quaint little diner...It was daybreak...Rush Hour hadn't begun yet....

Lieutenant Cotton sat next to a drunken man named...Eddie Thomas...a one time running buddy of his and of the late Robert Flynn..

"Imagine me running into you Eddie T....I thought you were dead.."said Lt. Cotton...

"Almost man..I smoked so much weed and did so much coke...I should be dead...but the federallis busted me...I did a nickel out in California in a federal prison...I'm clean now..No weed, no blow..been clean for nearly nine years..I don't even smoke no more..." said Eddie..

"And yet here you are drunk!" said Lt. Cotton..

"Well,I gotta do somethin man...Somethin to take the edge off..." he said..

"So tell me about Robert Flynn? You and him were boys right?" asked Lt. Cotton..

"We wrote many pages in the book of life Frankie...If I recall, you wrote a few your damn self..You had some heavy hitters of the female pursuasion..."he said..

A waitress walked by...

"Coffee darlin, two eggs, over hard....hash browns...and wheat toast with butter and jam." said Eddie,who pulled out a few bills and tossed them on the counter..

"I'll have pancakes and sausage and coffee.."said Lt. Cotton... "So...Robert was bangin Mark Rodgers's wife wasn't he?" asked Lt. Cotton..

Eddie looked like he'd seen a ghost..

"Yeah...he was...Every chance he got...He said it was the best he ever had...He said he couldn't walk away from her...she was a once in a lifetime type of woman...I think he was falling in love...I couldn't believe it right? Him? Robert Flynn, who never met a woman who he didn't believe it was his god given right to relieve her of her panties and bra." he said ,laughing at his own description of his late friend..
''When did you see him last?" asked Lt. Cotton...

Eddie T. frowned...

"The day he uh was last seen....August 8,2030....He was on his way over to Rodger's house..Old man Rodgers and his brother were gone fishin....He knew he wouldn't be there.." said Eddie..

"Who was watching Aja ?..The little girl?? "asked Lt. Cotton...

"She was there with her Mom....Richie told me that the mother used to put something in the girl's milk to make her go to sleep when she knew he was coming over..."said Eddie...

"That's disgusting..."spat Lieutenant Cotton...

Eddie looked at him...

"Frankie...Why you bringin that old mess up huh? That was what ten,eleven years ago..." he asked..

"Because my detectives found Richard Flynn's remains about a month ago...Bullet hole in the skull...There was a woman with him...She had a bullet hole in her skull too." he said...

"Damn, Richie is dead huh? I always wondered what had become of him...He just dropped out of sight,just vanished into thin air.."said Eddie..

"The woman with him is Antoinette.."said Lt. Cotton..

"Awww no...nahhh, she died ,she died a few days later..Natural causes...We was both at the funeral Frankie.." he said.

"It was a closed casket funeral..." said Lt. Cotton...

"Now you stretchin Frankie...Mark Rodgers was a controlling ,nasty son of a bitch...but he wasn't no killer...He idolized his wife..

"A woman like that...Like you said...She was a once in a lifetime kind of girl...If I was going to lose her...I might be driven to madness..I might be driven to kill...."said Frankie..

"Ohhhhh now I remember..You was sweet on her too...Richard took her from you...You two were never friends again after that...You never forgave him..."said Eddie...

"I just want to bring their killers to justice that's all...It's my job...I'm a cop..I'm Murder police."said Lt. Cotton..

"Their killers to justice or HER killer to justice...If that in fact is her...???"said Eddie T.

"What are you trying to say Eddie?" asked Lt. Cotton...

"I'm just askin...Is this really about the case...Or is it about you?  Your hurt feelings? Your need to get a little payback for what you feel was a wrong done to you? Hell Frankie...That was that man's wife...If anything...Both of yall owed him an apology...."said Eddie T.

Lt. Cotton looked distracted...
Daybreak was upon them!


III-

12 Hours later-

Monique's doorbell rang...She opened the door and was delightfully surprised to see Lt. Frankie Cotton Jr.

''Wow...Another country heard from?"she said...

He pulled her to him and kissed her passionately....She wanted to be mad...but when he kissed her she found she couldn't be mad...she evaporated into his arms...

"Baby...I'm so sorry....I'm so sorry..." he said ...

"What are you sorry for?" she said..

"I've been so pre-occuppied with this damn loser of a case...and I've drawn everybody into it...and it wasn't fair...Wasn't fair to my detectives, wasn't fair to you...to us....I've realized today that it doesn't matter....It's been ten years, everybody involved is dead...Who cares about this stupid case?  I'm done with it...Tell your sister and Nate to cycle it to the cold case division.." he said.

"Ohhh Frankie....Frankie....It was important to you....You needed closure on an important pert of your life...I understand that and before you throw in the towel completely....My sister and my brother in law may have solved your case for you.." said Monique..

"Huh? What? what are you talking about?" he said ,his eyes growing as wide as saucers...

"Mo-Mo and Nate got Aja's DNA...."said Monique..




"How? She'd never submit to that...Hell her father would never submit to that.."laughed Lt. Cotton..

"She eats at restaraunts...She drinks at Juice bars...She works out at a gym....They got me more DNA than I needed.. and I extracted DNA from those bones in the morgue...They're a match!! Those bones in the morgue are Antoinette Rodgers...That's her body.. I am 99.5 percent sure of it...Something else too..They got an exhumation order from Judge Creighton, thanks to their findings...."she said.


He smiled ,thinking about Mo-Mo and me...

"Damn...They are good...I knew when I put those two together that I had winners!" he said, shaking his head.

 He pulled her to him and kissed her forehead...

"I love you baby...and I don't want you to ever think that I don't....You're my once in a lifetime girl." he said...

"Awwwww...now let's stop talking and get some freaky sneaky into play." she said and winked...

"Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww...I'm supposed to say that.." he laughed..

"A sister has been missin her boo." said Monique...

"Well Alrighttttttttttttttttttttttttt!" he said and walked inside....

He followed her into the bedroom....

He slipped her panties down and unzippered his trousers and let them drop to his ankles...He hoisted her up on her nightstand and entered her slowly and gently...but firmly...

She was so turned on by him ,she didn't know how to resist him...She would never ever admit that to him...

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuu..oh my goodness Frankie...Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.."she moaned...."I'm gonna hurt you...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.."she moaned...

"Come on Sugar Baby, you missed this as much as I did.."he said..

''Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu yes....yesssssssssss..."she moaned...



"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...ouuuuuuu lawddd...ohhhhhhhhh.."he moaned as he entered in and out of her warm lusciousness...

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Frankie.....Frankie...............ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu lawdddd, Frankie.....Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my god...ouuuuuuuuuuuuuu.."she moaned...

The desk rocked something terrible...

"Ohhhh Sugar baby,I missed you..I missed this so much...Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...ouuuuuuu lawddd...ohhhhhhhhh...."he moaned as Monique kissed him passionately...

Her lips were as soft as butter...He was losing his mind...

He had been making sweet love to her for close to an hour...He couldn't get enough... She had come multiple times and was shaking and sweating...She felt so good, she slapped him in the face several times...

Finally he came so hard...he was at once frightened....

"Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.." he moaned and shook like an Earthquake...

"Ouuuuu Frankieeeeeeeeeee.."she squealed in delight...


He stood her in the middle of the floor...He slowly unhooked her bra and slipped it off...

"Ohhhh Frankie..."she moaned..

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh Sugar baby.." he moaned, deep throat kissing her....
He was now so excited he could hardly control himself...He was shaking....Tears were flowing from Monique's eyes...No guy had ever got her this excited or brought these kind of emotions out in her...

Before either of them knew what was going on....both of them were nude and lying across the bed making passionate love again....

"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MONIQUE!" he moaned...

"FRANKIE!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!" she moaned.....

Four hours slipped quietly by as they continued making sweet love...

I landed my flying car on the roof of our duplex at that moment...

Monica and I got out..

It had been a very good day...We were finally on top of a case that had been dead in the water,but now was close to being solved.. thanks to my wife's brilliant idea, which worked in our favor..

"The lieutenant will be tickled pink when he finds out that we not only got a positive ID of that body in the morgue and that it is indeed Antoinette Rodgers, but we got an exhumation order too.." I said.

"I knowwwwww...I've called his smartphone several times...It just goes to voicemail..."said Monica...

As we entered our domicile...we heard the bed squeaking through the air duct and moans...

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...ouuuuuuu lawddd...ohhhhhhhhh.."

" Ouuuuuuu ..Frankie....ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my goddddd..."


I smiled..

"Maybe he knows...Maybe they're celebrating this case being off the back burner..."I laughed..

"You're such a great detective ,baby." said Monica and she gave me a nice long seductive kiss...

"It's nice being right huh?" I said..

"Mmmmm yes." said Monica..
