It was a rainy day...but unseasonably warm as I sat in Sissy's office in what had been our home for the past few days...The administrative staff and the FBI agents and plain clothes cops we had working with us were very busy, fielding calls and sifting through information...
U.S. Attorney Burnside was in court on another matter....both Sharon and Carol were downtown at the Federal Building working on other cases....They'd be in tonight.
Even Hazel and Duke were gone ..at the Medical Examiners office...
Sissy was shuffling through some papers and signing overtime for her detectives and some of the plain clothes officers as well as the uniforms and administrative staff.
With a woman as sexy as Sissy, who wouldn't? I thought to myself..
"Rico and Hop are on that truck...They have enough now for us to start making arrests..I stopped by there yesterday....The food is actually pretty good..."She laughed.
"We are waiting for your wife and Sirena to crack this murder case..By the way...How did you get that information on those 12 homicides?" she asked..
"You've seen Jimmy?" she asked..
"Yes...He stopped by ...He couldn't stay a long time..He wanted to see you all..but naturally he has to be careful..There are people that still don't trust him and that watch him..."I said.
Jimmy had given Carlotta and Sirena information on where they could find the murder weapons, the DNA evidence and fingerprints as well as other evidence that linked our murder victim...Leonid Zharkov to 12 unsolved murders...all Russian mob suspects that had been open for awhile...We were able to close them all...Which made Sissy very happy.. He had passed the information along through his contact ,who passed it to Tyriq and Hop who were working on the phony food truck.
Shame we couldn't arrest Leonid...He was already dead...He was being judged in a higher court.
"Yeah..me too...I'm glad we are at the end of the hall."said Sissy with a sly smile..
I laughed..and slapped my thigh...
"So many beds are squeaking around here...It doesn't matter..."I laughed...
Carlotta entered the office just then...She was chipper and happy..."Good Morning Boss Lady...We got a few more leads to run down....Can I borrow my honey bunny today?" she asked smiling sweetly...
She was wearing a new dress and it looked sensational on her...How could I say no?
"Of course." I said.
Carlotta whispered in my ear...
"Stop staring at me so hard...You're getting me all hot and bothered..."
"You? I'm the one that's hot and bothered."I whispered...
"Heyyy Sirena." I laughed as we pulled off.
Carlotta and Sirena and three uniformed cops armed with riot pump shotguns went into a number of bars and pool halls in the area, talking to people about Leonid Zharkov...
He was known and feared and as expected...a number of people didn't want to talk about at all or be seen talking to cops...
Later that day,They tried another tactic...Carlotta went into some of these bars by herself..She was Puerto Rican...Not Russian...but she didn't look like a cop either...Wearing a very pretty dress and with that spanish accent..She caught the attention of some of the men who did talk as well as buy her a drink...
Sirena ,did the same thing..She was Black...but again..by herself..She didn't look like a cop and was able to charm quite a few of the men who made it no secret that they weren't adverse to having a black woman in their bed..
"I checked his credit cards and his debit cards Lotta..He was at a number of hotels with a guest all during the summer....All on weekends...How could a man's wife be gone all weekend and he not know it?" said Sirena.
Nikolay knew that his wife was fooling around and had Zharkov knocked off?These guys don't tend to get their hands dirty."I asked.
"Let's head back to that bar.." said Carlotta.
Natalia was a beautiful barmaid..Too beautiful to be tending bar I thought...She frowned when she saw Carlotta and Sirena ..The three uniforms and I sat outside...but she knew we were law enforcement..
"What do you want? Haven't you been around here enough? I've seen you both around the neighborhood." she snapped..
Carlotta smiled the sweetest smile she could at Natalia and sat down...
"Look...we are just trying to solve his murder...Leonid.." she said.
"You are asking the wrong person...I couldn't stand him...Nicky should have been number two." she said and all at once she realized she had said too much..
Sirena ordered a vodka...
"I won't tell if you won't." laughed Sirena..
Sofia seemed eager to talk..
Carlotta and Sirena looked at each other.
"I know.....He hired some outsider....Some kid that used to hang around here years ago...He calls him boychick...That kid got busted by the feds...and so did 39 other people...Nobody remembers doing time with him...I don't trust him and neither does Vladdy, Nikita's younger brother...but both Vladdy and Nikolay are too afraid of Nikita to go against him.." she said.
"She doesn't drink." said Sirena, laughing...
That night we were all in Duke and Hazel's room...Duke had made some chilli and was serving us all some bowls of Chilli..
"My cousin is a fireman." he laughed..
"Coming from you..That's a complement Top...Where are you and Sirena on this murder?" he asked.
"It's looking like a love triangle gone sideways and I don't think our boy was killed by gangsters...They're too afraid of Little Nikita..This is something else."said Sirena..
Tyriq and Hop smiled in betweeen gulps of the chili..
"You can take the warehouse Friday Siss...They got a huge shipment coming in.."said Tyriq..
"You can take the hotel and the bar anytime you want it..We got enough survelience and eyes on both for you guys to take it down." said Hop..
"He's still not trusted and he's got two enemies...Nikolay Berezovsky, the drug boss and Vladmar, the bosses brother...I gotta try to get word to him to watch his back..They follow him everywhere he goes." said Hop.
"Get to his contact...Officer Megan Stewart...Tell her to tell him to come in..That's an order from me!!..We got enough."said a very worried Sissy.
"Sis, I know how you feel..but let him see this one out...He's so close...He said he can possibly get Little Nikita for a long unsolved murder!!!..a murder of a cop.." I said.
The whole room got somber just then... Eddie C. walked in with a case of beer..
"Boy ,this is a somber bunch....Was it something I said?" he joked.
And miles away in a bedroom in Little Norway....Natalia and Nikolay Berezovsky were in the bedroom in the throes of passion...
"Don't you have to be at work tonight?" she asked in between kisses...
"I can be late...Right now...I want to be inside of you..." he said..
"Ohhhhhhh, you have to be careful...your wife...." she said.
"She knows nothing...Right now she is in New York, shopping,spending my hard earned cash..." he said.
Natalia knelt down and began to gently fondle his engorged penis....His head fell back and he moaned....
"Awwwwwww sweet Natlia...Yesssssssssssssssss..."
"I shouldn't be here...I shouldn't even be talking to you...You're a married man.."she said.
"Who's talking? I am married on paper only Tonight Natalia I belong to you."he said.
She took all of him in her mouth and began to move her head back and forth...He leaned backward and moaned silently...
"Yesssssssssssssssssssssss..." he moaned..."Natalia....I had no idea...Ohhhhhh my goodness!" he said.
"I had no idea you had so much in your pants... Nikolay"she said as she continued licking and sucking...making slurping sounds.....After about an hour of this ,he could take no more...
"Awwwwww, Awwwwwww ."he moaned...
"Looly-looly -loolenki..."she said...
" Russian lulabye....No one is going to sleep now...Ouuuuuu..Come here girl." He said and pulled her to him and kissed her passionately... Natalia was full of passion...It was as if she had wanted to unleash all of her love on a man for so long...
''For so long I wait for these moments...When it can just be you and me, alone...Ohhhhh..." she moaned...
"It's been a long time since a man held me like this...kissed me like this.." ouuuuuu."she said shyly......between passionate kisses....
He softly parted her legs and entered her as slow as he could....He had wondered what sex would be like with Natalia...many years before...but had never made a move or tried anything...until months ago, when he stopped by the bar to drop off the count for the night....He couldn't find Vladmir of Nikita or Leonid for that matter...But he found Natalia cleaning up and he asked her out for drinks at an after hours joint....She had said that it was innappropriate at first,but then agreed to meet him in secret..He had taken her in the back of the bar and had had her there....Afterwords he apologized profusely...but Natalia said that she had wanted him to take her all along and he had her again...Since then they had met whenever he could get away and had mind blowing sex..
She moaned softly as the massive bed began to squeak and slam against the wall...
''Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...""Ohhh Nicky, give it to meeeeee....ummmmmmph...Ouuuuuuuuuuu..I needed this...I needed this...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ,just put it in me...ohhhhhhhhh Looly-Looly-Loolenki"she moaned.
"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... Natalia......ouuuuuuuuuu, more, more... ohhhhhh..."he moaned as he moved in and out of her... He had always admired her sexy body.....
".....ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu sweet sweet mannn,ohhhhhhhhhhhh my godddddddddddd..ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....put it on meeeee,WHoaaaaaaaaaa!"she moaned.
"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yes...yes...yes.. it's soooo goood...ohhhhhhh..ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh sweeeeet baby yessssssssssssssss."he cried ...out!!"Morrre...Morreee....morrre...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.. "
They made passionate love for four hours...the bed squeaking, the headboards rattling and slaming against the wall...Neither noticed a small micro camera had been recording the entire thing....audio and video...
Outside in an unmarked car, Detective James "Jimmy "Barlow sat with a blonde plain clothes cop...Megan Stewart..
"Tonight?" she asked..
"Yes tonight..This proves that the barmaid they interviewed has been sleeping with Nikolay Berezovsky..." he said.
"Leonid was sleeping with his wife...You think he knew?" she asked..
"I don't think so...but even if he did...Both he and Vladdy were too scared of him to say anything about it.." said Jimmy...
"You think he killed Leonid?" asked Megs...
"No..but I got a good idea who might have and if I know my partner...She's thinking along the same lines.." he said.
"You're going to be a great one yourself one day." he said.
"Think so?" she said.
"Oh I know so.."He said...
"Now look...tomorrow...I gotta disapear for awhile...You cover for me..okay??" he said.
"I got to.." he said.
"What if they see you? Make her out for a cop?" she asked..
"They won't...." he said..
She looked at Jimmy gravely...She felt a deep fear for his well being.
