Olivia, Beverly ,Juanita Pryor and Gretchen Carter sat in the M.E.'s office with me a few days later...We were waiting for a report from Forensic Investigator,Dr. Hazel Hunter-Baylor...Olivia's friend...She had taken DNA samples and fingerprint samples from the dead body of the man Olivia, Bev and I as well as his fiance, Gretchen Carter had known as Jake Robinson...
Olivia had repped him for close to six months..had been to his place of work, Beasley- Reese Pharmecuticals and had met his supervisor and other fellow employees...Against his wishes of course..He had introduced her to Gretchen Carter, the executive secretary to the CAO of Beasley -Reese.
We had both at least been by the loft that he was living in...We certainly had thought that we knew him all this time...Apparently ,he had fooled us or the woman claiming to be his wife or all of us...My guess was that he had successfully fooled all of us..
Olivia looked at her watch and said..
"I wonder where Hazel is..I have a court appointment soon."
I was wondering the same thing...I didn't have a court appointment, but I wanted to go and run some things down...The cop in me..
Finally after waiting for what seemed like an eternity, Hazel entered the waiting room...
"Sure...just fill out these papers and we'll arrange for a hearse to deliver the body to the funeral home of your choice." said Hazel.
''Oh, Okay then." said Hazel.
Olivia and Beverly looked at Gretchen who was over in the corner crying softly...
Beverly put her arms around her...
Juanita Pryor walked over to where Beverly and Gretchen were sitting...She spoke quietly-
"Think of how I felt...Only seeing him on the weekends..Him lying and refusing to ever let me see his loft in Philly....I was just as big a fool as anyone...I thought I had a marriage..thought I had a husband."she said.
Yet ,I couldn't help thinking there was more to his story than what met the eye...I walked over to Beverly and whispered in her ear...
"Who is it this time ,The Riddler, The Joker??"she said laughing..
"Sounds like we got a real Joker on our hands."I said.
Sometime later, Beverly,Olivia and I visited the loft belonging to the late John Lee Pryor......It was beautiful..Much more classier than I expected from him...
"It's gorgeous."said Olivia..
''Bev, did you go to public records?"I asked.
"Yeah..I did...Found out some interesting facts."she said.
"Oh really? Like What?" I said.
"Like Jake Robinson and John Lee Pryor have the exact same birthday...Both grew up in West Philadelphia..Attended the same elementary school and the same Middle School..." she said.
"But there is no Jake Robinson...That was the phony alias he made up."said Olivia.
"No...There was a Jake Robinson...He's been dead for 15 years! Our boy here took his name and social security number and built himself a new identity about a year ago..Had credit cards and bank cards in his name and everything else...He lied on his resume about attending Drexel University and Later, Columbia University in New York...he lied about all of the jobs he supposedly worked at as "Jake Robinson" and he purchased this loft with money that was wired from an account from the McGarry-Edelman Pharmecutical Company." said Beverly.
''There is more...McGarry -Edelman in West Chester is supposedly where John Lee Pryor /Jake Robinson was last employed.." said Bev...
"Jake? ...I mean John?" said Olivia..
''He was fooling us all." I said.
"I often wondered how he got such a high position ...Jake just struck me as a player...Not as the brightest bulb in the socket."said Olivia...
''Apparently, he was a good actor ."I said.
"Yes...he fooled Gretchen and she's pretty smart."said Olivia.
I walked over to his phone...I noticed that in addition to two cell phones ..he kept a landline...A quick look at his smartphone showed that one was strictly for his John Pryor identity, while the other was for his Jake Robinson identity...I cross checked his calling lists...Different people for different phones.The landline had only a few calls...and one was from an angry caller...
"Hey Jake, you asshole...I want my money or I'm going to break you in to...It's Willie Davenport in case you forgot.." was all the caller said.
Hmmm , judging by the area code...That call came from right outside the city...I was going to find out where and pay Willie a visit.
I picked up my IPad mini....I went through my databases....Willie or William Davenport was a common name...but not the one that had a record for drug possession with intent to sell and who shared that same area code....I located his residence in near record time.
"Livy...I'm going to need your car" I said.
"I called Josie...told her to meet me here." I said.
Olivia kissed me..
"You think of everything dear.."she said.
I pulled her to me and kissed her again...long and softly...
''Holy mush, will you two stop it? " joked Beverly..
''Robin this calls for your expertise"...I tossed her the keys... "Drive" I said and got in the passenger side.
Beverly and I sat outside of the house...It was in a small suburb of Philadelphia...
''How did you find this place so fast?" she asked.
"Modern Technology and the fact that I did used to be a cop..."I said. "I knew where and how to look."I said.
"You're scary sometimes D.R." she said and laughed..
I pulled her to me and hugged her...
"Nothing either you or your auntay ever have to worry about...I work for you guys remember?" I said and kissed her on the forehead...Then I pulled out my wallet and gave her a few dollars..
"Here...go to that corner store down the street and get us some coffee and those uh Tastykake jelly krimpets you Philadelphians talk about so much...I've taken a liking to them." I said.
Beverly smiled at me..
"You're really becoming a Philadelphian D.R."she said.
"Next time you're in New Orleans...I'll have to introduce you and your Auntay to a Po-Boy."I said.
"Deal" she said and she got out of the car and headed to the corner store..
But before she came back...The man I was looking for walked up to the house...
"Willie..Willie Davenport!!"I called..
He went to run ,but I cautioned him...
"Don't run and don't make me pull out my gun."I said. I really didn't feel like a foot race or a fight.
He froze in his tracks..
"You damn Narcos....I'm clean..." he said.
"I'm not a narco..."I said.
I showed him a photo of John Pryor..
"That's Jake!" he said.
"Yeah...he's dead.."I said.
"Ohhhh crap! hey man...I didn't kill him...I haven't seen him since early Friday...Honest...I got a solid alibi for whenever he was killed."he said.
"He wasn't killed...it was natural causes...Heart attack, brought on by too much heroin ,mixed with cocaine and alcohol.." I said.
"Heyyy you can't blame that on me!!!!!...Yeah,I sold him some junk...but how he chose to use it or over use it aint on me." he said.
"You called his loft threatening him if he didn't pay you your money....Probably money owed for the last blast you gave him, am I right?" I asked.
"Y-Y-Yeah....He owed me 25K...but he paid me...in full on Friday....I didn't have no beef with Jake..he was just a little late with his payments ,is all..but me and him was good." he said.
"He paid you in full, 25K?" I said.
"Hey man, he wasn't like these college kids or some junkie in West Philly or North Philly...He had a big time position with some Pharmecutical company...He had the dough...He had a bad babe, nice crib...He liked to party...but he always paid...eventually!" said Willie..
I patted Willie on the back..
"You aint bustin me?" he asked.
"Nah....besides...I'm not a cop...I'm a private investigator.."I said.
By now Beverly had returned with coffee and Tastykakes...
"Get in the car...I already interviewed him...I'm going back to the store to get a Tastykake for your Auntay."I said.
"Way ahead of you D.R. I already got her one...You're not the only one who loves her."she said and smiled.
She dialed Nelson as We pulled off!
"Hey Baby..You want some company tonight?" she asked.
"Are you kidding? Sure!" he said.
Beverly looked at me and laughed....covering her phone..
"He gets sooo excited over me...It's kinda cute."she whispered.
''Okay..D.R. is bringing me by in a few."she said.
"I'll be here."he said.
"You really dig him Bev?" I asked.
"Yeah...he's good people..Sometimes I feel so bad at how I used to treat him."she said.
''Well..at least you know he's serious about you."I said and smiled.
"Can you put me off at Nelson's apartment?" she asked...
"Sure thing...You did good work today counselor." I said...She beamed with pride....as we pulled off and headed back to the city.
"Hey" I said, leaning down to kiss her..
"Hey yourself..Where is Bev, at Nelson's?"she asked.
" Yeah...Our guy Jake or John had a lot of cash to spend and I don't think it came from Beasley-Reese.."I said.
"He was working for two competitors at the same time?" Something is rotten in West Chester.."I said.
''We as in me and you?"I asked while stripping down to my boxers and laying across the bed..
"Yeah...you never take me on these adventures...My niece can't have all of he fun."said Olivia..
"I don't know uh, I wouldn't want to hurt her feelings."I laughed..
Olivia kissed me softly and tenderly...She ran her hands in my boxers and fondled my raging erection softly...
"You wouldn't want to uh, hurt my feelings would you?"she said softly, blowing in my ears..
"I certainly would not."I said ,pulling her closely to me and kissing her....
She began to laugh loudly then...
"Huh? What?" I said.
"You are sooooo whipped.."she said. "The three of us are going." she laughed...
"Come here you!!" I said...She leaped up and began running from me..I chased her...She was laughing and screaming as I chased her around the room...
"Stoppppp, get off of me.." she laughed as I finally cornered her and extended her arms against the wall and kissed her long, slowly and softly for five minutes....
"Wowzers....You're going to hurt me with that thing." laughed Olivia as she put both of her hands around my erect penis and stroked it a little bit more... She shook her head and smiled.. I slipped her panties down slowly...She stared in my face with those big expressive eyes of hers...She was breathing deeply and kissing me slowly...
I entered her and lifted her up and begin to thrust inside of her deeply. I tried to catch my breath, Olivia wrapped her legs around me and her arms around my neck as if I was falling off a cliff.
We quickly got a nice deliberate rhythm right there up against the wall.. I just wanted to go hard and fast, but she slowed us down. I could barely stand it.It felt so good... I slowed it way down with deep, long strokes that make me feel like I was losing my mind...She kissed me softly and blew into my ears...
''Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...Ohhhhh Donnie Rayyy..ouuuuuuuuuuuuu." she moaned.
''YeSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yesssssssssss" I moaned....
We made sweet love this time for about a hour and a half before we both exploded in a passionate fury...
"Ummmmm,put me down....I'm getting a cramp in my leg." laughed Olivia as we both walked over to the bed and rested ...I rested between her legs...She wrapped them around my lower back and played in my hair...I held her tight...
"So tomorrow...West Chester right?" she said.
"Yeah...West Chester." I sighed...
"Donnie Ray?" she said.
"Yeah?" I answered..
"I'm whipped too."she said and smiled as I leaned up and kissed her softly.
