Fading Away


"Girl, you really missed a great jazz festival...It was all week long." said Kool Kat to Chelsea Daniels...His neighbor , who lived directly across the street from him.

"I know...but I had to go home to check on my mama." she said.

Home for her was Oklahoma of all places...She had been gone for two weeks..The last week which had seen Chess and Chris ,along with Mabel Jenkins ,Gus , the bartender and owner of Josie's and Dollar Bill throw a gala of music and food that delighted the entire neighborhood.
Chelsea and Kool Kat were not exactly an item....They had an "arrangement" you might say....They were what you might call -"Friends ,with Benefits" They slept together quite often and he often took her to nice dinners, on weekend trips away from Philly , to movies and plays and whatnot...but he didn't exactly consider himself her man.

Chelsea knew who Walter "Kool Kat " Jones was..She always knew who he was and what he used to do...She had grown up around men like him...Her Daddy was a man of the street like Kool Kat..She wasn't afraid of him, and Kool Kat liked that...but she didn't pressure him either and she told herself that she wasn't going to fall in love with him, no matter what. She didn't know...but she assumed that Kool Kat had other women....It was a ask me no questions ,I'll tell you no lies type of thing.

Kool Kats Blackberry began vibrating....It was the third time , in the hour that he had been at Chelsea's house that it had done so...He looked at it, grimaced and layed it on the table.

"Her again huh?" laughed Chelsea.

"Yeah." said Kool Kat.

He had told her all about he and Kevin's adventure in which Bernadette's ex-husband, Harry Charles and her present boyfriend at the time, Ralph Scallion had been kidnapped by three guys , Gorilla Lewis, Elephant Jones and Abel Gardener, who were planning to kill them for two entirely diferent reasons...and how he, Kevin and Clerow had rescued them and (his words) "sent the three stone cold gangsters packing" Chelsea was no fool....She had grown up in Philly most of her life...She knew that nobody in Philadelphia was ever going to hear from Gorilla Lewis, Avel or Elephant Jones ever again.

He told her that ever since then....Bernadette had been blowing up his phone, and practically putting it in the newspapers that she wanted to be his woman. She was fine and all and he certainly was tempted more than once to put it to her..but she was too needy, too pushy and forceful...He didn't want that.

"You sure you didn't give her some of that good lovin of yours?" cooed Chelsea mischeiviously!

"No...If I did, I'd certainly tell you...I haven't lied to you about anything else.." said Kool Kat.

"Hmmm...I don't knowwwww." said Chelsea in a sing song voice..

"Nah baby...I was saving this for you." laughed Kool Kat...

"Sure...tell me anything " she laughed, all the while, unzippering his trousers....and marveling at his huge, erect penis....

"My, My My." she said...

"Come here girl" said Kool Kat, as he lifted her up, slid her panties down and sat her up on her
sink.....

"Ouuuu, it's cold.." she said....

He smiled and entered her slowly....She was a little tight...but she soon began to moisten...

"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" she moaned as he slowly began to move back and forth inside her...She held on for dear life as he continued.....

"Ohhhhh Walter, you feel so gooooooooooooooooooooooooddddd.." she cooed...

"You do too baby." moaned Kool Kat.

Halfway across town in her beauty parlor...Bernadette tried Kool Kat's number again......One of her patrons, Marlene Jordan said to her...

"Gurll, why don't you stop callin that man? You gone run him away if you keep pestering him like that..."

'How you know if I'm callin a man?" responded Bernadette.

"Oh , we all saw you wit Kool Kat every night last week at the Jazz fest...and he the only guy you talk about....Everybody know he got your nose wide open....He must have knocked the back out of you on them nights girl." laughed Marlene.

"Actually, he hasn't.....He was like uh...a gentleman...He took me to the fest and then he escorted me home...He only came in once...We kissed a little bit...but before we got hot and heavy...he left." she said.

"Whattttt, Walter Jones...Just left???He must have a woman somewhere else." said Marlene.

"Sheeet, he got a couple of women...He was tearin my girl Beverly up out in West Philly." said one woman who invited herself into the conversation...and what about that big boned gal at Mulberry Street...Kool Kat turned her out...turned her outtttt....Girl, maybe you better be glad you and him didn't do nothin...because he got you so nutty now and he aint touched you...imagine when he do put it to you...You aint gone wanna come to work!" said another woman. Everyone in the beauty parlor burst into laughter...Bernadette didn't find any of it funny...Her heart was broken... She was being shunned by a man she had a big crush on...Her marriage had recently ended and she felt desperate and all alone for the first time in a long time.

Then.....Harry Charles, her ex-husband walked into the parlor...There was a hush of silence when he walked in...Everyone knew that he used to beat her and that he used to come in and rifle her cash register..sometimes taking a whole days pay to feed his gambling addiction. Now of days...He was different. He no longer gambled...in any way shape or form. He had gone to anger management classes and he had started attending church on a regular basis. When he came to see his ex-wife..he was very contrite.

''How you doin Bernadette?" he said.

"I'm fine Harry...How are you?" she said. Bernadette was always cordial to Harry...Part of her felt sorry for him...

"I'm good...I start my new job next week." he said. Bernadette's eyes lit up!!

"A Job? What are you doing?" she asked excitedly...

"Kevin Morris got me a job working at his magazine...I'm Sean's wife, Sheila's Administrative assistant..I'm making pretty good money..I got a savings account and a checking account and I paid my two credit cards off.." he said.

"You still living with Georgia Ray?" she asked. Georgia Ray Charles was his mother!

''Oh nah..Nahh..Chess and Chris rented me a spot....I got a nice apartment....You should come over and see it sometimes." He said.

''Wow Harry...you've really turned a corner...Workin...got your own spot...I'm impressed." said Bernadette.

"Yeah..well..I'm tryin to do good... You still seein that cook, Ralph ,what's his name?" he asked.

"See! There you go....For your information, no....I'm not...I know you're seeing somebody." she said.

''Haven't had time to." said Harry.

"Well......Maybeeeeee...Maybe I'll stop by your place after work....but it's just a social call Harry,
no funny stuff..." she said ,sounding like a school girl,...They had afterall been married...It wasn't like they didn't know each other in the biblical sense.....

Meanwhile , across town in Chelsea's kitchen.....

"OHHHHHH...OHHHH MY GODDDDDDDDDD...OHHHHHHHHH WALTER...OHHHHHH!!" she screamed...

"Ouuuuuuuuu baby...ouuuuuuuuuuuuu...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!" screamed Kool Kat as he thrusted harder and faster.....

"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH BABYYYYYYYYY!!!!! DARLING!!!!!!" she moaned...

Finally they both reached their climax in a crescendo of both pleasure and fury!!!

Sweat ran down Kool Kat's forehead and his massive shoulders....Chelsea's head collapsed on his
chest...Her perm was completely sweated out....She was exhausted...They both fell to the floor ,laughing...

"Oh my goodness Kool Kat...that was the bomb....ouuuuuuuu.." she cooed..

"Damn girl...I thought I was gonna die..." he said ,still trying to catch his breath and laughing.

Harry Charles sat in the courtyard outside of his Apartment complex... "Fading Away" by The Temptations was playing...He sang along with the chorus.. "You changed and it's showin...baby,You've changed and it's showing..tell me...where is our love going.." he snapped his fingers as Eddie Kendricks' s soft tenor faded into the night time sky...He looked up and to his surprise..Bernadette was parking her car and getting out.

"Wow ,I didn't think you were coming." he said...

"I told you I was" she said...

"Who is that singing ?" she asked ,snapping her fingers to the beat...

"That's the Tempts, what you know about that?" he laughed.

"My daddy used to play them all the time." Bernadette laughed...

"So did mine" Harry said.

"Like smoke from a cigarette, like dreams that you soon forget, our love from the day we met,it's fadin away..fadin awayy..fading away." they both found themselves singing in unison.

"You've changed and it's showin" sang Bernadette... She smiled at Harry, then turned her face away shyly!

Harry looked at her and managed a weak smile...

Another great effort Keith,I loved the ending when Bernadette and Harry Charles were singing together.
That was so romantic!

Lisa said...

This was more romantic than erotic..I never thought Kool Kat
was the man for Bernadette. I don't think Harry is either...but it was nice that they shared a nice evening.
