Discovery


Monica and I were in a small room across the street watching everything from a video feed...The very tony bistro known only as "M.K.'s" was the scene of a little drama that was going down...

We had wired the tony establishment for sound and video the night before after closing...I had had a team of plain clothes cops take turns following and watching Christopher Wilde, our murder suspect for a few days....

They had told Monica and I that he really enjoyed eating at M.K.'s Bistro and had taken a liking to the waitress there named Andrea...

Monica had met with Andrea and got her to wear a wire and to offer to eat breakfast with Christopher Wilde at her place of employment...She told him she was off today...

We really didn't expect him to admit to anything to her...What I wanted was any utensils he ate with..Any glasses he drank out of...

Monica and I were kissing passionately across the street while waiting for Christopher to show up...

"Baby!!Okay now!!....Nate? Nate!!! We gotta cool it..We'll miss Christopher Wilde...My goodness, Were you this affectionate with Nyla?" she asked giggling..


''Actually, I was..Maybe I loved her too much...and it scared her..."I said, breaking her embrace and looking at the monitor...

"Then that was her loss...I didn't mean to make you sad." said Monica...

I smiled...

"I know, but I know I come on very strong and too soon...It's a mistake I've made all of my life.."I said.

"Well you did come on strong to me when we first met...but it worked...You got me!!!.."she said smiling "And let me tell you something....Although I thought you were cute...and I admired your record and all...I never saw myself getting involved romantically or sexually with you...And now I have done both....You're some kind of guy Nate."she said smiling.

"You makin fun of me?." I said.

"Noooo..Nooo, you are some kind of guy." she said and pulled me to her and gave me a long soft ,sensual kiss...

"Ummmmmm, some kind of guy." she moaned softly...

"Wow that's somethin...I uh hope I didn't spook you last night...When I said I wanted to be your husband."I said.


"But you meant it...and you know you can't lie to me.." she said.

"Wow....." I laughed..
"You've been calling me  Future Mrs. Nellis and calling yourself Mr. Talbert.. ever since you met me.Why would I be surprised or spooked??..." she said..."
"Guess You have a point" I laughed...

"Of course I do."she said smiling...

"So uh, If I was ready to uh make that move ...?" I said.

"Yes ....If and when you are ready...I don't think I'll say no."she said.


''Wow! That's uh..That's pretty cool" I said.


"We have a lot of getting to know each other  to do first before we do anything like that...I'm just saying ,if you wanted to, I wouldn't say no....Look at the monitor...Christopher has arrived.." she said and gave me one last kiss.

II-

Christopher Wilde walked in and sat down...He was dressed very casually, but there was really nothing casual about the prices of the things he had on...Everything about him said Money..

"I gotta hand it to this guy ,He has style.."I said.





Monica agreed...
"This guy is a walking advertisement for GQ magazine.." she said..."Here comes Drea." she said.



Andrea was a shapely and quite busty waitress who worked at M.K.'s... Christopher demanded that she take his order everytime he came in...

He flirted and left big tips and finally left his number on a napkin with a tip..She had never called..
When Monica and I found out about that...We asked her to call and to wear a wire.. She was hesitant at first, but then agreed.

"Andrea....When you called me at first I couldn't believe it.." he said.

"Yeah well.. I'm kind of dateless lately and you seem nice..Leaving big tips and all and so I decided to give you a call especially since you left your number...Not the subtle type are you?" she joked..

He smiled..

"No I'm not...I believe in going after what I want..And I've wanted you since I first saw you in here." he said.

"Yeah...everybody in here kind of knows that....The waiters and the cashier used to tease me about you...Said Drea, one of your customers has a crush on you..The preppy Black guy..." she laughed..

"Oh is that how they describe me? The Preppy Black guy?" he said.


She laughed..."Yeah."

"Hey uh look...That's not going to be a problem is it...Me being Black and you being Italian??" he asked..

"Not for me..I've dated Black guys before..You wouldn't be the first." she said.

"You ever take them home to meet mom and dad?" he asked..

"Of course and my brothers too..It wasn't a problem..."she said.

"Wow..that's so cool..." he said.

"You going to take me home to meet mama and daddy?" she asked and laughed..

"Sure." he said.

"Listen at us...Talking like we are in a relationship...This is just breakfast.." she said.

He smiled ,but didn't respond.....

"Christopher...Christopher!!!!  Eyes on my face..Not on my boobs.." she said laughing..

"I-I-I couldn't help it...They,They ,They just were so prominent.." he said.

"I know that's right...That's what I was tryin to tell you." I said to Monica.."Lawd!" I said just thinking about it...


She shook her head..."Men and boobs...you are such babies.." she laughed...


"You ready to order?" she asked..

"Uh Yeah.." he said...

He had Blueberry Pancakes, Sausage, Hash Browns and a tumbler of Hot coffee as well as a glass of orange juice... She had Scrambled Eggs, Bacon ,Hash Browns and a Mimosa... He ordered a Mimosa also..

"Still fascinated by my boobs Christopher?" she asked..

"If I may ask ..Are you wearing a bra to hold all that in?" he said.

"Oh My God..You don't hold anything back do you?" she asked...

"If she only knew.." I said dryly, thinking about all the semen he left at the break ins and at our crime scene...

"Ewwwwwwwwwwwww...Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu you are soooo bad.." laughed Monica...


"I'm sorry did I embarrass you?" he asked..

"No...you think you're the first guy that has asked about my boobies?  But it was usually long after our first date..." She laughed...

"Wow..So I haven't totally messed up with you right??..We might go on a real uh date date? I'd like to take you to Octopus Garden out on and under the sea..."he said.

"Oh wow...Really? What do you do for a living?" she asked..

"I'm an engineer." he said.

"Okayyyyyy..You're sounding a lot better every second." she said.

He laughed...

They finished their meal after awhile and as planned the waiter seperated all the utensils and glasses  and cups he used and put them in a plastic bag and passed them to a plain clothes policeman in the kitchen ,who immediately pulled off and drove to the forensics lab downtown.



"I asked you what you did for a living because two detectives were in here the other day asking questions about you." she said.

"Oh really? What kind of questions?" he asked..

"Did you come in here with some girl?....They showed me a photo...I didn't recognize her and they asked a number of us what kind of customer were you and what not..I didn't tell em nothin..I'm not a big fan of the cops.." she said.

He smiled..

"Was it a black guy and a black girl...Young? The girl was real pretty??" he asked.

''As a matter of fact yeah..That was them." she said.

"They're trying to pin a murder on me..but they got nothin...They been following me...Like I was not aware of that...I didn't even know they knew I came here..."he laughed..

"You didn't..You didn't kill anybody did you?" she asked.

"Of course not...They're grabbin at straws...I'm an engineer and a lover baby...not a killer.." he said..

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh a lover eh...? That's what I like about Black guys...Their swagger..The amount of time they take in the bed...ouuuuuuuu."she said smiling...

Suddenly Christopher's air of superiority just vanished...He looked sick..


"You Alright Christopher?" she asked...

"Uh Yeah...Yes..." he said.

He paid the tab and left a nice tip....

"Ohh look...You're looking at my face now." she said jokingly...

"Uh Yes...Yes...So uh look...What are you doing this weekend?" He asked..

"Nothing..What do you want to do?" she asked..

"How about dinner at Penns Landing and afterwards...We take in a movie?" he said.

"Ouuu Christopher...That sounds nice..." she said.

"Okay.....Then it's a date then." he said.

He got up and walked out, smiling...Got in his car and pulled off...

III-


"Thank you so much Drea...I think we got what we needed." said Monica.

"I said what you told me to say..but I couldn't get him to admit anything.." she said.

"That's okay...I think we'll have enough to snag this fish without it."I said...

"I hope he's your man...I don't want to be on the hook for having to go on a date with this knucklehead." she said..

Monica and I laughed our heads off...

IV-


Christopher Wilde sat in the "fishbowl",our nickname for the Interrogation room once again...He looked cocky and arrogant as well...


I sat quietly in the room with him saying nothing..Just ruffling a few files...My partner, Detective Monica Talbert walked in and sat down next to him and across from me...


He finally spoke...

"You know..This is the second time you two have brought me down here and I fear you have no more evidence than you had the first time, which is none...And if you think you're going to brow beat a confession out of me...Well you're not...And I'm afraid I'm going to have to call my lawyer.."he said.

"I think that's an excellent idea... Calling a Lawyer...You see Christopher...We picked up your boy, Bobby Lawton a few days ago and he sung like the Jackson 5....He gave you up in a heartbeat and we didn't have to question him too hard either...."I said and showed him photos of all 18 homes that were broken into...

He didn't flinch...

"I don't know what you're talking about and I don't know any Bobby Lawton and you can't prove that I do.." he said...

I produced a smartphone...I dialed a number...His smartphone began to ring...I looked at him and smiled..

"This is his burner phone...He gave it to us...And it has your number in it...We traced the number back to a phone in your name....and this is a photo of you on the subway at 10:45 pm, the night of the murder...It took you just about five minutes to walk to her house and get inside...She died around 11:15 pm...then you made a call around midnight to your boy and he told you to drive to the spot where we found the car with the body in it." I said.

Again..He didn't flinch...

"Conjecture...You can't prove any of that." he said.

"Oh But we can." said Monica...Who showed him photos of wet spots on the floor of the bathroom, the the bedroom, outside the house , the soaked panties, the loaded condom and the murder victims legs and finally her own bathroom floor and bedroom floor..

"You uh left a deposit at all of these places... We got a DNA match for every location and from the victim and even my apartment...Did you enjoy looking at my panties and bras that you stole?" she asked..

He didn't flinch...

"So you got a match???...You don't have my DNA!!!...and I'm not bound to submit it...So you can't prove it was me." he said.

"Uh we kinda  do...You had a meal this morning at M.K.'s - Pretty nice place...We uh borrowed the knives,spoons, cups and glass that you ate and drank out of and got your DNA...and it's an exact match..."said Monica..


"We have DNA...We have time stamped photos and we have a witness....by the time the jury hears this..They'll have heard enough.."I said..."It's over....Stand up Christopher...You're under arrest for the murder of Danielle Groves.." I said.

He stood up and I hand cuffed him..That arrogant smirk was off his face now...

Monica smiled at him...

"You know what the ironic thing is Christopher???......If you hadn't of left your uh genetic marker at all of the crime scenes,including my bedroom and bathroom....We might not have had much of a case against you....For someone as obviously intelligent as you...That was pretty dumb!"she said..

He hung his head low and was lead out..He was visibly shaken....He said nothing..He just looked at us with that blank stare...

I looked at my partner and laughed...

"Genetic Marker?  That was a nice way to put it.." I said cracking up...

Monica cracked up too...

Lt. Frankie Cotton Jr. applauded...

"That makes case number 100...You two are incredible..."he said..

All of the detectives and police officers in the squad room applauded as we came out...I bowed..Monica curtsied..

We both busted out laughing...

"Damn..you got both of those jokers and solved Robbery's case too!  Damn good work detectives.."he said and laughed..

EPILOUGE-


Bobby Lawton testified and as agreed...He was only charged with Possession of stolen articles and sentenced to 14 months in County Jail with mandatory drug intervention classes...He was released after serving 8 months.

Christopher Wilde was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Danielle Groves and 19 Home Invasions...

A few nights later, Monica and I agreed to meet Nyla and Frank at M.K.'s Bistro

"Oh My God...I never thought I'd be having dinner here so soon."said Monica....

I couldn't take my eyes off of her....

"No better time than now." I said as we sat down....My ex-wife, Nyla was at our table with her fiance, Frank...He didn't look at all like I expected...But he turned out to be a real nice guy..

"I'm so glad we finally got to meet...Nate , this was such a great choice...How did you hear of this place?' she asked..

"I was here once during a case."I said.

"Nobody got murdered in here did they?" joked Frank....

"Ohhhh no...no... A suspect liked to dine here...I followed him here." I said smiling...

''Wow..He had good tastes.." he joked.
"Good tastes and poor judgement." I said..

We both busted out laughing...

Nyla looked at Monica and smiled..

"I know you've heard about what I did and you must think I'm horrible...but I'm really not as bad as the moment of madness that cost me a happy married life." she said.

"I don't judge you...Nobody is perfect, believe me...I'm far from it.."said Monica..

"I think you're good for Nate...I do..I like you Monica...You're down to earth...He needed that...Don't make the same mistake I made.." she said.

"Nyla..Forgive yourself...Nate has forgiven you.."said Monica.


"I hope so...And I want you both to come to our new home after we get married and meet Nate's and my son...Nate Jr." she said.

"I would like that." said Monica...

Just then...Wally Becker...Nate's ex-partner and Nyla's ex-lover walked by the table...He was astounded by what he saw..

"WHOAAAAA! What are you doing here?  Nyla?? Nate?? Monica??  Frank???" he said.

We were all mortified...What was he doing in a joint like this?

He looked at our table and did a double take...

"Nate and Monica???....Nyla and Frank?? This explains a lot....Oh My freakin....Monica..You and Nate.??..Nyla..You and Frank???..." he said.

"And you and nobody...Take a hike."said Frank...

Oh My Goodness.. Nate..You and I gotta talk.." he said and walked off ,stunned..

"Hey Frank...I like you already!" I said smiling...


"You gonna get in trouble at work now that he knows you two are together?" he asked...

"I don't know...I don't too much care at this point."I said.

"He's such an idiot...How do you guys work with him?" asked Nyla..

"On Different floors!" said Monica...

We all busted out laughing...
