Mis-Adventure


"Your boy died of Heart Failure Kevin...No foul play here." said the Coroner...

"Are you sure Doc?" I said.  "I was just with this guy a day earlier." I continued.

"Yeah I'm sure....Look..I had a copy of his medical records...He had a bad heart for years and he often skipped taking his medication...Plus he drank like a fish and did a little cocaine....All things that led to his demise." he said.

"Coke? Him?? Pork Pie Nelson?? " I said.

"Yes...The cops found straws and two baggies over his house...Like he had guests or a guest." he said.

"Hmmmm..." I said.  "So you're certain his death was just plain old heart failure?" I  asked.

''Yeah Kev..Yeah...We did three tox tests and we searched for everything known to man...We found prescription drugs...his meds, alcohol way above the legal drivin limit and coke in his system...This guy was an accident waiting to happen...His death is being declared "Mis-adventure" said the M.E.

"Mis-ad what?" I asked.

"Mis-adventure...a toxic mix of alcohol, prescription drugs and or narcotics that causes one's death, though not intentional..." said the M.E.

"Okay Doc..If you say so." I said.

It had been three weeks since I'd discovered Pork Pie Nelson's corpse on his living room couch...Edna Walton hadn't been seen or heard from in that time and I hadn't a clue as to where she was...

I questioned six of Pork Pie's neighbors....They told me that he had one visitor on the day my wife and I had been to see him...and from their description...I knew that that visitor was none other than Jimmy Dee...Her estranged husband.   At least I knew now that Jimmy Dee didn't kill him...but this made the second time that he had "interviewed" someone he was paying me to talk to....I would deal with Jimmy Dee later, but first I had to go to Edna's Cell phone provider.


The agent at her provider's main office traced her calls and used her cell phone signal to pinpoint where her last calls came from.....One call was at 2:35 am from Jimmy Dee...No surprise there, but the second call, the text was from....Fast Tony Costner!!!!  This was made at 3:10 AM...  Hmmmm...now that was interesting.
The phone agent showed me a map...a map of where the last signal came from....He pinpointed it... I now knew where to start looking.... I thanked him for his time and then rounded up Clerow, Owen Todd and Kool Kat!

II-


Using my car, the four of us drove to a small street in Northeast Philadelphia, right off the Boulevard...and there , right under a tree was Edna's 2010 Ford Focus Coupe....The keys were inside the car... I called Jimmy Dee and told him where to meet us and if he had a spare set of keys to her car....Naturally, he did...

''You found Edna's car?" he asked.

"Yes and the keys are inside.." I said.

"I'm on my way." he said.

He arrived within an hour and Owen, Clerow, Kool Kat and I looked on as he opened the car...

"Here's her drivers license and her pocket book....All her credit cards are here....her make up....but no dough...They stole all her money." said Jimmy Dee.

"Yeah, there should be at least $600.00 in there." I said.

" Six Hundred? Huh?  What are you talkin about?" he asked.

"Pork Pie Nelson loaned her $600.00 that night....They weren't havin an affair..She was borrowing money from him." I said.

"What?  Why didn't she ask me?" screamed Jimmy Dee.

''Maybe she didn't want you to know why she was borrowing it." I said.

"You know somethin I don't?" he said...''Spill it Kev"

"You're payin me to know something you don't...You went to my office and roughed up one of my employees and then after I had already been to see Pork Pie Nelson you went and saw him too....Now he's dead..." I said.

"Heyyyy...I didn't lay a hand on him..." said Jimmy Dee.

"I know you didn't...He died of mis-adventure." I said.

"Mis ad what?" said Jimmy Dee, Kool Kat, Clerow and Owen Todd in unison...

''Heart failure...He had a bad ticker and the fact that he drank liquor and snorted a little blow didn't help him at all." I said.

"Blow?? Him??" asked Jimmy Dee.

''Him and your wife....I suspect that she was his supplier and that she needed that large sum of money to pay somebody off." I said.

''WHO?" he screamed.

"That ,I don't know...Perhaps she could tell us if she was here." I said.

"Yeah...we still don't know where she is or how this car got here..." said Clerow..

"Hey ,let's open the trunk." said Owen Todd...

"Theres a little button on the side of the door on the inside...push that." said Jimmy Dee.

I pushed the button and the trunk opened up!

"WHOA! " said Clerow and Kool Kat....

"What's up?" I said.

Owen Todd, Jimmy Dee and I walked around to the back of the car and there inside the trunk was the decaying remains of Edna Walton, aged 41....Wearing the same clothes she'd had on that night in the club....
She had a nice neat and round hole in the side of her head...and she was wrapped in plastic trash can liners that had slipped off of her....

"OHHHH MY GODDD NOOOOOOOOOOOO.....EDNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!" screamed Jimmy Dee who fell to the ground crying....Owen and Clerow stood with him....

"Kool Kat...call the cops....looks like our mystery is solved..." I said.

"Damn sure is...." he mused as he dialed the police.

III-



"My detectives are doing a house to house search to find out who if anyone saw somebody put this car here."
said Lt. Sissy Van Buren. of Philadelphia Homicide...

Detectives had taken Jimmy Dee away to get a full statement and Kool Kat, Owen Todd and Clerow sat in my car waiting for me to finish talking to the cops....

"Hey Louie...I found somebody." said one of the detectives...He brought a short white guy , about 26 years old over to us...

"Your name is?" asked Lt. Sissy Van Buren.

"James Dugan...I live on this street....About three weeks ago, around six in the mornin....This short Black dude in a shiny silk skin type of suite drove this car here and parked it....I was on my way to work..It was about quarter to six....He asked me for a light...I gave him a light , Then another dude , a younger Black dude drove up in a Black SUV...an Escalade...There was another guy in the Escalade, but I didn't get a good look at him. The three of them talked and then the dude I gave the light to got in the SUV with them and pulled off, leaving the car there....and I went on about my business...I come home from work...This would be around 2;00 in the afternoon and the car is still here..a week goes by, the same car still here...Just sittin here..I wondered if this guy was visiting somebody on the block or if he was ever comin back...Then I thought that maybe they stole this car, but I never seen him or his pals again.." he said.

"Would you know them if you saw them again?" asked Sissy...

"I don't know...It was just that once and there wasn't too much about any of em that was distinct..." said James Dugan..

I had heard enough...I walked to my car and got in and pulled off... I took Clerow home and Owen Home...

"What do you think Kev?" asked Kool Kat.

"I don't know what to think...You think somebody would kill somebody over a $600.00 debt?" I asked.

"Mann, people been killed for much less.." said the big man.

"Something here just doesn't fit...." I said.

"What doesn't fit Kev?" asked Kool Kat....

"There's much more to this than meets the eye....Once I figure that out..I'll know which direction to go in." I said.

"Hmmm" said Kool Kat.

We went back to Ricks to look for Fast Tony Costner, but he was nowhere to be found...We went to the Mermaid Club, Ciros and Josies...No Fast Tony...I needed to ask him about that text message...I imagined it wasn't going to be easy to get anything out of him...

"Think he's gone to ground Kev?" asked Kool Kat.

''Either that or he's under the ground." I said. Kool Kat grinned.

''He works for Diamondback.." said Kool Kat.

"Diamondback?? Didn't he used to bust heads for the loan sharks back in the day?" I asked.

"Yeah, when he was younger...but now I understand he's moved up...He's the man in the neighborhood now. You know him?" asked Kool Kat.

"I know of him....but I feel I'm going to get to know him." I said.  "Let's go get a cold one from Josie's....We can look for these cats some other time." I said.

''Sounds like a plan." said Kool Kat.

IV-


"Ouuuuuu Kevin...ohhhhhhhhhhhh, you felt soooooooooo good." moaned my wife Sepia, later that afternoon as we finished making sweet love on our bedroom floor....We didn't make it to the bed.

"Wow...This was the best part of a long day." I said.

"Really? Wow..Glad I could be some help." she said and laughed gingerly.


"I'm serious....today was just a day of death." I said.

"Yeah...I heard that Mr. Nelson's death was of natural causes.." she said.

"Yeah and we found Edna Walton, dead in the back of  her car way up in Northeast Philly." I said.

"Ohh my God!!!..." said Sepia...

"Keys in the car, Drivers License ,Credit Cards and Pocketbook all there, cash gone." I said.

''So this was a robbery?" asked Sepia.

"More than that...but I got to find out." I said.

"Wow...." she said.

We got off of the floor and eventually made our way to the bed ,where we both lay in a post coital cuddle...



"MMM, this feels nice." said Sepia.

"Yeah it does." I said.

''So what are you going to do next?" She asked.

''About this case? Go back and talk to a couple of people,  But as for right now..." I said and laughed...and eased her bottoms down......

"Ummmmm, behave now....behave...We just got finished...Oh my goodness, you are such a horndog.." she laughed as I rolled over on top of her and began kissing her and caressing her breasts underneath her tee shirt...

"Chalk it up to mis-adventure." I said in between kisses and me entering her warm and wet place once again....

"Ummmmmmmmmmmmm....ouuuuuuuuuuuuuu...Mis ad what?" she asked...

"Nothin." I said with a smile...

The Usual Suspects






I usually took Clerow or Owen Todd or Kool Kat with me when I was on a case....but I figured I'd take my wife, Sepia with me this time...We were just looking for the wife of a young hothead and I had no reason at all to think that there was any foul play involved in her "disapearence..."

More than likely, she was probably in the bed with some man. I didn't want to tell Jimmy Dee that..but then again...I'm sure he suspected it. She was very flirtatious!

Sepia and I went to Pork Pie Nelson's house...We had seen Pork Pie and Edna leaving the bar together the night before...They probably overslept!

"I can't imagine her sleeping with an old man like that." said Sepia.

"Pork Pie is sitting on a lot of dough...He's gets a check from the military, a check from his government job and a check from the city...Yeah,I could see it." I said.

''But she's married to Jimmy Dee." said Sepia.

''Jimmy Dee , who works for the Water Department and has the frostiest demeaner this side of the North Pole... I can't say that I blame her for sleeping with anyone other than him." I said.

"You better watch talking like that lover...He is your client." she mused.

We both laughed as I parked the car and we  both walked up to Pork Pie Nelson's house and rang the doorbell.

Pork Pie came to the door in his bathrobe and boxer shorts...When he saw Sepia behind me ,he smiled and said-

''Hi ya Kevin...Heyyyy Sepia." he said.

''Hey Pork Pie....Uh Listen...Is Mrs. Walton over here?   Her husband is lookin for her." I said sheepishly.

"She was here last night....but she left hours ago." he said.

''Hours ago?" I said.

"Yeah." he said.   Then he pulled me to the side so that Sepia couldn't hear me..

"You uh didn't tell Jimmy Dee that you saw her with me in the bar did you?" he asked.

'No...He doesn't know who she was with...He hired me to look for her and bring her home...He doesn't know where I am right now." I said.

"She needed a loan..That's why she come over here...I gave her $600.00...She good for it..She always pays me back.." he said.

"That's all she came over here for?" I asked.

"Well...we kissed and made out a little bit...I was gettin ready to take her clothes off and make some sweet love to her when she got a text message...She got up ,buttoned up her blouse...said she had to go and run out of here like a bat out of hell...and that's the last I seen of her."

''What time was this?" I asked.

''A little after three in the mornin." he said.

"Thanks Pork Pie." I said.

Sepia and I got back into the car and pulled off..

"So was she there?" she asked.

"Yeah, but he says that she left at three in the morning...she got a text message or something." I said.

"Jimmy Dee?" asked Sepia.

"Maybe." I said.

II-





I dropped Sepia off at the beauty parlor and hooked up with Kool Kat... The big man and I went looking for smooth player, Fast Tony Costner....He hung out in a North Philly Social Club called ''Ricks" , a bust out joint for cats like him...Ex cons...

"Haven't been in here in years." said Kool Kat.

"Can't believe you were ever in here...This doesn't seem to be your style." I said.

"Well not now...but once upon a time...." laughed Kool Kat..

We walked in and started walking toward the booth where Fast Tony was drinking and talking to another man...A young tough saw us and started walking towards us...

'Relax Junior...We just want to talk to Tony." I said.

"My name aint junior " he snapped and threw a punch at me..I grabbed his arm, put it behind his back and slammed his head on the table..He fell to the floor...Another went for his gun, bu Kool Kat had his .44 magnum cocked and aimed at his temple.. Fast Tony jumped up...The man he was talking to eased out of his seat and slid away...He had a black eye and a bruised cheekbone and swollen lip..He looked like somebody had beaten him up recently.

"Relax Tony...Welcome back...Heard you got out. What happened to you?" I asked..

He grimaced, but he didn't answer my question.

"Yeah Tone..we just got a few questions to ask you, that's all...no need for all this." said Kool Kat.

"What's this about?" he said.

"I'm just lookin for your ex-wife, Edna...You seen her?" I asked.

''What you want with Edna?" he asked...

"Have you seen her?" I asked again.

"Yeah I seen her...Last night at Josies...We talked awhile.Saw you too..You got a nice lookin wife..You should see more of her and stay out of business that don't concern you." he said.

"You seen Edna today or since then?" I asked Tony, ignoring his last statement.

"Nah...why?" he asked.

''No reason...a friend of a friend is lookin for her." I said.

"Her punk husband hired you Kev to look for her?  He come around here too askin had I seen her...He almost got himself shot.If I was you...I'd give him his money back..Aint no future in being mixed up with her." said Tony.

"Oh Really? You know somethin I don't know Tony?" I asked.

By now the young tough got up off of the floor and dusted himself off...

"Nice job!  GET outta here." snapped Tony to the young guy who scurried off.

" I know it's nice to breath in and out everyday..and to mind my damn business. You might want to talk to that old guy, Pork Pie Nelson...I saw her talkin to him last night." he said.

"Still the make believe tough guy eh Tony ?" said Kool Kat.

''Whatever man." said Tony.

"Come on Kools...There's nothing else to be learned here." I said.

Kool Kat and I left.

"Pork Pie Nelson??  She's bangin that old dude??" asked Kool Kat.

''He loans her money....I already talked to him....He said she was over last night and he gave her $600.00, then she got a text message of some type and she left." I said.

"Hmmm..and she aint been seen since?" said Kool Kat.

"No...hasn't been to work in two days either...." I said.

III-




I talked to close to twenty five people who were close to or knew Edna Walton within the next few hours and nobody knew where she was . Nobody had heard from her in 48 hours... I questioned the tall thin young man at my office who had been seen flirting with her...Apparently he had been visited by Jimmy Dee and had a black eye and a busted lip to show for it!! He hadn't seen her since the last time she had been at work.
I decided maybe I'd better pay Pork Pie Nelson another visit... He had after all been the last known person to see Edna alive.

I didn't feel like calling on Kool Kat again today and Sepia was already home...Clerow was with Corrie and his kids...So I went alone... I rang the bell three times...No answer!  That was strange.....I went to knock on the door and it was surprisingly open......I walked in.

"Pork Pie!  Yo Pork Pie!! It's me Kevin..." I said....

Nothing seemed amiss until I walked into the living room....The television was on....and Pork Pie was lying on the couch with his mouth wide open.

He's either drunk or he's asleep I thought to myself and chuckled.....but he was neither...I went over and shook him and he was stiff as a board!


HE WAS DEAD!!!

Just Business



My name is Kevin Ezekial Morris...When you first met me...I was just a blogger and a freelance writer for a very hip magazine....who wound up reliving his days as an investigator all over again...You see..I was in the Marine Corps once and in addition to being the services middleweight boxing champion....I used to be an investigator for the Naval Criminal Investigative Services or NCIS as the popular TV show goes.  Once out of the military,I went to college on the G.I. Bill, got a degree in journalism and began working for this small magazine in my hometown of Philadelphia Pa.  Anyway...My future wife had a blog with very seductive photos of her on it...We began a corespondance of sorts and she traveled to Philly to meet me..We became embroiled in a multiple murder mystery that led me to my second profession...Private Investigator!...I got my P.I,. license soon after I cracked a number of cases and I got married and the rest is history...When I'm not running this magazine...I'm doing investigations for people who can and can't pay.....This is my life!  It's just business. My business of living.

I moved up in the ranks and now am Editor and Chief of the Magazine... I have added sections to it that didn't exist before and with the help of my assistant Sheila Jackson and my good friend, her husband, Sean Jackson...have attracted advertisers that have helped the circulation quadruple and allowed us to go national.

We have a website and an application that is sold online....So people with Iphones, IPADs, Tablets , Androids and the like can now read us... I don't have time to blog anymore...and I only occassionaly write or edit a story...I have a staff of 62 people to do that now...I just make it work... On this particular day...I had just finished  meeting with a group of advertisers....We had cemented a deal and all was well...

II-

As they left, my main man Sean Jackson wandered into my office....He was smiling...

"Closed the deal boss man?" he asked.

"Closed the deal....We all should have fuller pockets in the forseeable future." I said.

''Man Kev..Me and you ought to go out and actually do a story together..Like in the old days..Remember? Me and you out on the West Coast covering the BET awards that year?" he laughed.

"I sure do...that was before either of us was married.." I said...Sean Laughed...

"Yeah..My lawyer,.Conrad Nelson went with us and HE was married...Though you'd of never known it.." he laughed.

'You right about that." I laughed...

Just then, Edna Walton, an  extremely attractive  and curvaceous woman who  worked for us walked down the hall with another young staffer, a male who was just laughing and giggling...She was once again wearing a skirt that was a wee bit too short...a blouse that was a wee bit too sheer and cut too low...(Though, Sean, myself and no other male staffer was going to complain.)She stopped by the water cooler and gave him a little kiss on the lips...waved bye bye and walked off...He stood there swooning for a minute , then he walked away in the opposite direction.

"Speaking of married Kev...aint she married?" asked Sean.

''Yeah, to that young guy...Jimmy Dee.Though you'd never know it the way she flirts around here." I said.

''Jimmy Dee? He's what, 28, 29 years old...Edna is fine as hell, but I know she's at least 40." said Sean Jackson.

"Would you let a little thing like age make you turn her away?" I asked.

''NO SIR!You got that right Kev..I don't blame him.Her curves got curves." said Sean.

"And so does your wife...who happens to work here." I added.

"Yeah..I know...Sheila's no slouch either in the curves department, but just cause you have the Mona Lisa ,don't mean you can't look at the rest of the art in the museum." said Sean.

'Heyyy..I like that partner." I laughed....

"I figured you would...Gus told me that." he said.

''Sounds like him." I laughed.

"Don't it though?" said Sean Jackson.

"She's been around the block a bit." I said.

"Yeah..Pastor Struthers used to tap that on a regular basis before he got re-married and turned over a new leaf and Rollie Rollerson used to tap that too." said Sean.

''Who haven't either one of them tapped?" I asked...

"You got that right partner." laughed  Sean.

We both laughed... Edna had also been married to a major playa...Fast Tony Costner....He had done a bid in the state prison and had just recently been released...and she had been rumored to be seeing...Pork Pie Nelson, a much older gentleman...She was a hot number...Very flirtatious...I hope she knew what she was doing!

Just then, Her husband, Jimmy Dee, came storming into our office...

''You seen Edna?" he bellowed.

"She's around here somewhere." said Sean.

"What the hell you mean she's around here somewhere?" he bellowed.

"Excuse me partner? " said Sean..."It aint my turn to look after her." he said.

"Oh youse a smart guy." he said.

"Hey Jimmy...Her office is down the hall...Other than that, that's all we know...Don't come in here with all that loudness...You aint bustin no grapes here." I said.

"Was she with a tall thin guy?" he asked.

Sean and I didn't answer him, we just stared at him...He stormed off down the hallway... We both shrugged our shoulders....It was Thursday...

"I know you aint workin tomorrow.It's crab leg night at Josies tonight and there is going to be two D.J.'s there" he said.

"Nope Not working and I know...Taking the misses out tonight for a little dancin and romancin...at Josies" I said.

"Good for you Kev.....You deserve it...Maybe Sheila and I will see you there." he said.

III-



"WOW!" was all I could say when I saw my wife, Sepia in her new dress.....

"You like?" she asked...

"Lawd Jesus yes....I just want to take it off of you!" I said.

"Oh stop it!" she laughed..."We haven't been out dancing in a few weeks...If you treat me right...I might just take it off for you and let you uh sample the goods later on tonight." she said with a sly seductive grin."


I just laughed, We always playfully sparred with each other like that...

At Josies...Sepia and I danced the night away and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly....There was no band tonight..but two D.J.'s and all the crab legs and beer you could consume.



Edna Walton, my seductive employee was there and she was there with Pork Pie Nelson.
Pork Pie was a good twenty years older than her, Making him 60 0r 61....He was grinning from ear to ear, sitting with her in a booth and talking and laughing and buying drink after drink...

"That's the girl that works with you isn't it?" laughed Sepia...

"Yeah that's Edna." I said as we danced..

"Isn't she married to Jimmy Dee?" she asked.

"Yup." I said.

"Well Look, she's leaving with Pork Pie Nelson." said Sepia,

"Sure is.." I mused.

Edna got in Pork Pie Nelson's car and they pulled off...

Twenty minutes after they left..Jimmy Dee stormed into Josie's... He was his usual cheery self...

"HEY...HEYYY...ANybody seen my wife?" he bellowed..

Gus, the bartender and owner walked over to him....

"Hey kid..quiet it down..She left here about a half hour ago." he said.

"Who was she with?" he screamed.

Gus just looked at him-

"She left here a half hour ago." he said.

Jimmy Dee knew not to push Gus.....He shrugged his shoulders and stormed out!

"Somebody is gonna kill that kid one day or he's gonna have a stroke or heart attack." said Gus matter of factly.

"Oh Gus....shut up." laughed Sepia....

"I'm serious...He's too much the hothead." laughed Gus.

I scanned the crowd....Fast Tony Costner was there with another man...who I didn't know, they were laughing and talking and drinking.... I thought nothing of it...but within minutes...They too got up and left...

IV-



Sepia and I drove home...It had been a quiet, uneventful night..She went upstairs...I fooled around downstairs for a few minutes and then I eventually walked into our bedroom...Sepia had taken the dress off and was putting away her shoes in the closet...Clad in only  panties and bra...she was a sight for sore eyes...Mine...

''You said you wanted me to take the dress off...So now it's off." she said.

''Yes indeed." I said..

"Kevin, we've been married for four years...You always act like you're seeing me for the first time." she laughed.

"Well damn...sometimes it seems like it." I said.

''Awwwww that was kind of sweet...come over here." she said as I took off my shoes and trousers and shirt and hurled them into a corner and hungrily groped her...

We kissed passionately for a few minutes and then I slid my boxers off..Sepia took one look at me and her eyes grew large...

"Ohhhh mmmyyy, you really haven't seen my body in awhile." she joked as we began to make sweet love on top of our still made up bed.

I slowly ,yet steadily enetered her sweet moistness and began to slowly descend into her .....

"Ohhhhh Kevin...Ohhhhhhhhhhhh...you feel soooo good.." she moaned...

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...Ohhhhh babbby..." I moaned myself as our covers soon began to be wrinkled and our bed began to squeak furiously as the headboard began to slam against the wall...

"Damnnn girl.....I KNOW I'm not goin to work tomorrow...." I said as I continued to thrust mightily....

Sepia wrapped her legs around me so she could take all of me in.......

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu..." she moaned as I began moving deeper and deeper into her.

We made love deep into the night.. I don't know how long we were at it...all I remember is that we both came together and went to sleep in each others arms....When we woke up...we were both nude...our sheets and covers were on the floor and we both were very cold....Happy, satisfied...yet cold!!

 V-


The next morning was Friday...I wasn't working and for once,I wasn't working a case...I was out walking by a fruit stand and looking at some fresh fruit I was planning to purchase when Jimmy Dee walked up behind me and patted me on the back.

"Hey Kev...you seen my wife?" he asked.

"You know Jimmy, you're really becoming a pain you know?  I didn't even go to work today." I said.

"I know...I was already there and they said that she didn't come to work...She didn't come home either." said Jimmy Dee.

"How come you can't seem to keep up with your wife?" I asked.

"Look...I need your help...I hear you're some type of investigator or something....Right?? Right?  I can pay...Just find her for me...I need to talk to her...Please." He pleaded.

Here I go again...and this is my life too...Getting caught up in other people's problems...For a price!

Shock And Aww No!


"She's here? You don't mean Nik Nik do you? You and Nicole?? You and Nicole screwing???....Awww hell nah!!" said Brandi.

I had wished she hadn't been so crude...but that was Brandi!!!

I felt all eyes on me at that moment, but I am afterall a man and not a punk..so I stood my ground...

"Yeah...me and Nicole are together...We been together about six or seven months." I said..

"Unbelievable!!! My soror..my line sister..my best friend is sleepin with my man.." said Brandi.

"Your MAN??" asked Nicole, finally speaking up.....and much to my relief..  "You've been married for the past six or seven years and been out of the country....or is there something I don't know?" asked Nicole and looking at both of us...

"Of course not!" I retorted....

"No Nicole, but Cole was my man for two and a half years....I told you everything about our relationship...you knew that....you was my girlfriend...You have to admit...This looks awkward..." said Brandi.

"Yes.. it does....but it just happened." said Nicole..

"Oh it just happened huh?  Your bra and panties just melted off and his penis just inserted itself into you huh...the minute my back was turned?" said Brandi....

"Brandi cut it out...you and I broke up a year and a half before you and Dexter got married....That was seven years ago..What did you think, that I was just supposed to wait and hope and pray that you got divorced and then wonder if you was gonna come back to me?" I asked.

"No...of course not...I-I-I just didn't think you'd be bangin my friend..I mean anyone else, I wouldn't care" she said.

''It wasn't like that...I ran into Nicole at Charlie Washington's wedding and we just uh kind of hit it off." I said.

"Charlie Washington?? The Alpha?? ,he got married??" asked Brandi.

''Yeah girl..married one of our sorors from out of town...I didn't know her until the wedding." said Nicole.

"Ummm Ummph Ummph...now that was a hunk of man there.Lawd Jesus...He had that nice smile, those pretty white teeth, those big hands...ummmph, ummmph,ummph...He could talk me out of my panties with ease when he wanted to...I slept with him about three times." said Brandi.

''Yeah,I remember.I heard you practically singin his name through the wall that one night."laughed Nicole.

"Gurlll, wasn't I? I hit notes, I haven't hit in the studio....heheheheh...ki ki..ki.." laughed Brandi.

For a moment , they both were oblivious to me standing there..almost like they were back at Howard...in the dorms!

''WHOA...Hold up...wait a minute...What in the wide world of sports is going on here?" You slept with Charlie Washington??" I asked.

"Yeah...Two of the times was before you and I got together and the last time was right after we broke up, but before me and Dexter hooked up." she said.

"Dirty Mother- " I grumbled.....''So it's alright for you to sneak behind my back and sleep with a friend of mine, but you mad at me because I'm seeing Nicole...way after we broke up, way after you been married and out of the country...Girl, you trippin...and it's double standards like that...which is why we broke up in the first place." I said.

''Who was sneakin?  The first two times was before you and I were a couple and the last time was after we broke up." said Brandi.

Paris,Blake, Cherish, Anita, Nadine and Chance were all standing back taking this in . I knew that Nicole, Brandi and I were going to be the topic of much pillow talk tonight...

Brandi looked at us...Then she smiled...

"It's cool...Look..it's been seven years....You right Cole...I haven't been around....I see that obviously you must have a thing for her...since you got all chest up over her.." she said..."I always thought you two had something going...Even in college...Cole always stopping by your room after he left mine...Always folding your laundry...telling you a lame ass joke...Always waiting in your room for me when he 'd come up and I wasn't there..ummmm hmmmm." said Brandi.

"Was you late because you were with Charlie Washington?" I asked.

''Whatever, Cole" snapped Brandi.

"It wasn't like that...Cole and I were just friends then...I wasn't even thinking about him then.." said Nicole..

"Nah, because Eric Snead had your nose and your legs open then." laughed Brandi slyly...

''Eric Snead? The Que...??  You gave HIM some?" I asked.

Nicole looked down at the floor...Paris, Blake, Sean Jackson and Chance were all shocked... None of us liked him in college and in fact...He was the main reason we had all chosen Kappa Alpha Psi, instead of Omega Psi Phi....We didn't want to be a part of anything he was apart of...and Brandi and Nicole knew it!!

''Yeah...I had a thing for him....I knew how much you hated him and he didn't like none of you Kappas either,so we kept it on the low for about a year." said Nicole..

"Damn...the things you don't know." I said.




''Speaking of things people don't know...I knew about you screwing that Delta...Glenda Jones..." said Brandi...

Now Paris, Sean, Blake and Chance all seemed to be laughing , while Nadine, Anita,Sheila and Cherish were glued to our every word..  I blushed...if that were possible..

"Yeah..didn't think I knew huh?  A Delta came past her room and the door was locked and she heard her moanin and screamin and then saw you leavin , hours later...She couldn't wait to throw it up in my face." said Brandi.

"Okay...Okay...old business..old business...Now we know everybody's secrets...Long story short Brandi...I'm with Nicole now....We never had anything going on back in the day...It never crossed my mind." I said...

Sean, Chance and Paris all started coughing....Blake gave them all the side eye...Nadine, Sheila, Cherish and Anita smiled...I was embarrassed but I continued...

"But...It  more thancrossed my mind when I saw her at Charlie's wedding.....I did have a deep crush on her back then, but I didn't act on it...but at Charlie's wedding...I acted on it...She resisted at first..she said she felt like she was betraying you...but I convinced her otherwise... I always liked her...She was easier to talk to than you were...She was down to earth...not so self  absorbed and self centered like you were. I kept thinkin the whole time that I shoulda waited until she was available instead of going after you so hard. If you want to blame somebody, then blame me...But she's my girl now and I aint ashamed of it and I aint apologizing for it...Not to you and not to anybody." I said and looked her dead in her eyes...

Brandi smiled and shrugged -"You're right...You win....I hope the two of you are happy" She said.

''Hey Brandi...it's time for our last set." said Downtown Rob Brown as the band members took the stage...

"Well it was nice talking to you guys again...Sean, Paris, Blake,Chance...Nice meeting you girls too.." said Brandi as she headed for the stage...

I walked outside by myself....I just stood outside catching the cool breeze....Paris came outside and stood next to me...

"Damn dog...I like the way you stood your ground bruh." he said.

"Hey man..I'm sorry about Glenda...I know that you and her had a thing when you was pledging..."I said.

''Water under the bridge frat...Do you know how many babes I done laid since then?" laughed Paris....

Blake came out too.....

''Man...All them honeys are turned on with the way you stood up for Nicole man..We all gonna get laid tonight." laughed Blake.

I smiled....

''Where's Nicole?" I asked.

''She's in the ladies room...they talkin to her, tellin her that you a good man and what not...It's all good bruh."
said Chance as he and Anita walked outside...

"I'll be talkin to ya nupes... We on our way home." he said as he and Anita got in his car and pulled off.. Sean Jackson and his wife came out...They smiled at me and got in their car and pulled off.

''Here come the girls now." said Blake as Cherish, Nadine and Nicole all came outside....

"It's been real everyone." I said.

"Be Easy Cole." said Cherish as she and Blake walked to the parking lot...

''Yeah babe, be easy." said Paris as he and Nadine walked to Blake's car.

"Always" I said dryly....

That just left me and Nicole Butler standing outside of Josies.....



Nicole looked at me with those beautiful brown eyes of hers and managed a weak smile...

"You know what Cole?" she said.

"What?" I asked

"I don't feel guilty anymore...About being with you." she said.

"You don't?" I asked.

"No...In fact, watching you stand up to Brandi and tell her off like that has made me so moist I can't stand it...I want you to come home with me and make love to me for a very long time." she whispered in my ear...
I pulled her to me and kissed her passionately....She ran her hands down my pants and felt my bulging erection!!!

"WOW!.. It never fails...All I have to do is kiss you and you're as hard as a rock!" she mused...





EPILOUGE-

 I don't have to tell you that Nicole and I wound up back at my apartment..(It was closer and neither of us could wait...) We wound up nude and on top of my bed , with me on top thrusting away inside of her very moist vagina , while she and I both moaned and gave each other sloppy kisses well into the night and the early morning....

''Oh goddd Cole...I love you.." she moaned....

"Uhhhh,Ohhhhh Nicole.....I love you tooooo...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...ahhhhhhhhhh.." I groaned as we continued making sweet love....

My phone rang at four in the morning....My answering service picked it up....

"Cole....I got your number from Rob before I left the club...You made me so wet the way you talked to me....I'm not wearing any panties right now...and I'm home alone....I'm horny as hell and lonely...Call me...you know you want this..you know you've been dreaming about this....pick up the phone...I know you're there...pick up the phone...I need you...I need you...It's Brandi....Just star69 and call me back...I'm so horny for your lovin.."

We stopped making love for a minute....

"Can you believe that?" I said.

'Who cares?" she said....

Nicole looked at me...We both laughed ...then she gave me a full mouth kiss....I returned her passion and we continued to make love late into the night hours and early into the morning hours...

Brandi Returns


Nicole Butler and I were out at a new bar, a spot called the "Aqua Bar"...with our friends..Paris, his date, Nadine Green...Blake, his girlfriend, Cherish...Chance Howard , his girlfriend, Anita Jenkins..and Sean Jackson and his wife, Sheila...

''Wow this place is nice!" I mused as we all were seated in our booth, which was shaped like a clam shell... The entire bar was one long aquarium with aquatic life floating around in it...while the top was pure marble...It was beautiful....There were black flat screen television sets above us with music videos from BET or Sportscenter..depending on what side you were sitting...

''Nice and High"said Blake... Sean Jackson seconded him- ''I hear that"  The girls all laughed...

''Stop being so cheap...if it were up to you we'd go to Josies everytime we went out."said Cherish.

''What's wrong with Josies...It's clean and plus they have live music?"said Paris..

"Josies is great...I got nothing against Josies, but we go there all the time...This is different." said Cherish..

"Cherish, it's fine." said Nicole Butler...

Paris bought the first round...Blake bought the second and Sean bought the third round... We all laughed and talked and drank for the next two or three hours....

"Hey guys..let's go get some grub ,it's almost closing time... Breakfast is on me.." I said.

"That'll work"  said Sean Jackson...

"I'm in" said Paris.

"You know I'm down." said Blake.

As we were leaving, we saw the trumpet player, Downtown Rob Brown and his girlfriend Debbie...They had been seated at the bar....It had been so crowded that we hadn't noticed they were there..

''Heyy Rob, what's up baby?" I said.

''You know Rob?"asked  Nicole.

"Yeah...I used to go see him when he played D.C." I said.

"Hey Cole, Paris, Blake, Sean, ladies....So I see you discovered the new hot spot in the area huh?  Don't tell Gus I was in here..." he laughed.

''We won't tell if you won't."laughed Blake.

"Deal...Hey look...I'm playin Josies next Friday...and I got a hot new singer..." he said.

"Singer?  You sound like Reed Nelson ...I never figured you for the pop type." said Sean Jackson.

"I'm not...She sings straight Jazz...Get this..She's some type of International Lawyer...She just moonlighting as a singer...She was married, got divorced and now she's here in town...She auditioned for me..She's quite a singer. Come check me out." said Rob Brown..

"Deal..we'll be there." I said...

''Where you guys off to?asked Delores.

"We goin to get something to eat...why don't you join us?" asked Nadine...

"No thanks..we tired and we drunk....We on our way back to my place." said Rob.

Delores just smiled...but Nadine, Nicole, Cherish and Anita all gave her the side eye...She just giggled...We all KNEW what they were going to his place to do and it didn't involve sleeping.

II-


A week later, we were all at Josies... It was a full house...They had a comedian on who opened up for Rob...He was hillarious! He did a set and then Downtown Rob Brown came on....

''Ladies and gentlemen...it gives me great pleasure to introduce to you...my new soloist...Ms. Brandi Wells!!!" he said....

I thought I would fall through the floor!!! Brandi Wells was my ex-girlfriend...Nicole's sorority sister....and next door neighbor in the dorms back in college!!!

Nicole looked at me in shock.....

"Oh my God...Cole...it's Brandi..." she said.

"Yeah,I see.." I said..

"What are we gonna do?" she asked.

''What do you mean what are we gonna do? We are going to sit here and watch the show..We aint done nothin wrong...We are all adults." I said.

"I feel so bad...oh my God." said Nicole.

''What do you feel bad about?" I asked.

''I feel like I've betrayed my friend."she said.

"How???...We never did nothin in college..You wouldn't let me." I said.

"Yeah, but we sure have done a lot since college." said Nicole..

"Just pipe down...It'll be alright." I said...  I sure wished I believed that!

Paris ,Blake and Sean all turned and looked at me and began laughing...Dirty niggas!!
Neither Anita, Cherish or Nadine understood what was going on..but they did..They knew that Brandi and I were a couple many years ago....and now here I was with her
soror and best friend....who I was enthralled with....Not very comfortable...

Brandi came out...She looked incredible!!! She started singing and Rob Brown and his band began playing and the sweat began pouring down my back...I think Nicole felt uncomfortable too!

She was actually quite good...She always did have a great singing voice...even in college!  The crowd loved her and when Downtown Rob Brown did his trumpet solo, the crowd went wild...Even Gus , the bartender and owner of Josies was snapping his fingers and moving and grooving to the music...

Over in the corner...I saw Kevin Morris and his wife ,Sepia, Robert Foxworth, my boss and his foxy wife, Bonita and Clerow and his wife, Corrie sitting together,digging the music...It was a full house tonight...Chris Thompson and Chess, who I had rented my condo from, were also there with their ladies...

It was a good night! Nice crowd.....For awhile, I just relaxed and enjoyed the show...and then  it was over..they finished their set.


"Okay...Okay...Thank you...you're too kind...Okay, we are gonna take a break now...remember, be good to your waitresses and bartenders." said Downtown Rob Brown..

III-


I tried to squirm down in my seat, but Brandi saw me and blew me a kiss...I was so embarrassed, but what could I do?

After her set was over...Brandi came down into the crowd and mingled with the guests..She spotted us and walked over to our table..

"Oh My God...You Kappas are still hanging together...I don't beleive it!! Oh and they got you with them Nicole?/Skeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Weeeeeeeeeeeee.." she said.

"What's up soror?" said Nicole as she embraced Brandi...

She walked up to me and gave me a long sloppy wet kiss..she even stuck her tongue in my mouth...I felt myself getting hard, but I broke our embrace and eased away..

"Hiiiii Coley Cole..How you been?" she said seductively...

"I've been good.."I said.

"I heard you lived in DC ." she said.

"I did...but I moved up here a few months ago...I work with Chance at his law firm.." I said...

"Ohhh that's nice...Chance ,I hear you're practically a partner." she said.

"Yes..I'm Mr. Foxworth's right hand man...That's how I was able to get Cole the job...
This is Paris's lady friend...Nadine Green...She works at our firm too." he said.

"Pleased to meet you...I'm an attorney myself." she said.

"Really? Oh my God...you sing so well." said Nadine...

"I practiced International Law with my ex-husband...but when we split up...I decided to put the law practice behind me and do something I really wanted to do...sing." she said.

"Blake, Sean...Chance, don't be rude...introduce me to your friends.." said Brandi.

"Brandi...This is Cherish.." said Blake..

''Cherish..that's a beautiful name." said Brandi...

"Thank you." said Cherish.

"Brandi, this is Anita..Anita Jenkins..Anita, this is Brandi..We all went to college together." said Chance.

"Brandi, this is my wife, Sheila." said Sean Jackson...

"Your wife??? Sean...you married??" she said.

"Wow!! Of all of you..You're the last one I thought would be married....and here you're the first of the crew to get married." said Brandi who high fived Sheila..."Gurlllllll...there are stories I could tell you about this one, but since he's my homie..I won't...Congratulations girl." said Brandi...

and then....came my turn!!!! The entire room got quiet....

"So Nicole, you still seeing that Que named Joe ?" she asked.

"No Brandi, that ended years ago..." said Nicole as she looked down towards the ground...

Brandi then eased up to me and whispered in my ears...

"I hope you aint puttin that big horse you got in your pants in anybody on a steady basis because I been dreamin about sampling that again ever since I got back in the states." she said.

"Ugghhhh Brandi.... I am seeing someone.." I said.

"Oh you are?" she said.... ''Well why didn't you bring her?" asked Brandi.

"I did..she's here." I said.

Fill in The Blank Space (Part 2)





My car was out of gas...
Lucky for me that you drove past...
Your car had overheated
and since we both were stranded...
It was nice that we could give each other aid.
since we were both short handed.
Maybe more than the situation demanded...
Yet ,what we both needed./


By the time we exchanged addresses and cell phone numbers
I wondered what kind of a mutual spell
we both had come under...
I never imagined I'd wind up
in your bedroom making love
Come on girl, you know and I know
We never intended to take this as far as that...
Don't leave me stranded between a rock and a hard place...
Fill in My blank space...


I think I now know what you want to do...
and it's pretty obvious what must have been
on my mind too..
Don't leave me stranded between a rock
and a hard place...
Come on lady...
what just happened here?
Fill in my blank space
Yeah
we 'll make a nice fit...
(especially when we are doin it!)
Don't leave me stranded between a rock
and a hard place...
Fill in my blank space./

Don't play games with me girl
Just give me the facts?..
Fill In the blank space./


I thought we'd start off slow...
I pushed the pause button
but you pushed go...
You invited me over for some tea...
Told me to stay...
Said you enjoyed my company...
And now we've come to this...
It all started with just one kiss....
which led to another and another
and maybe we went a little further...
What's going on here?
Please fill me in my dear?
Fill In the blank space!/


I know what you want to do...
and I think you know what's on my mind too...
Don't leave me stranded between a rock and a hard place...

Hotel Room




I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the door to the hotel...
There she was...Nicole Butler,All chocolate goodness....in a white negligee' with garters and white sheer hosiery and white high heels... My mouth dropped wide open...

She looked at me and smiled...."You like, Cole? " she asked....Knowing the answer....

"Girl, you know I do." I said...

"MMMmmm.." she purred and climbed off of the table and walked over to me...She smelled great....Like she'd just gotten out of the tub and lotioned down with a sweet smelling and expensive lotion.....

''Wow....I was gonna bore you by talking about the exciting cases I've been working on with Robert Foxworth and Chance Howard..."I said.

She walked over to me and planted a huge wet, slurpy kiss on my lips...I could feel myself getting very erect...With her looking like this...It didn't take much...

"That wouldn't bore me...but we can talk about that at some other time, don't you think?" she cooed.

''Yeah-s-sure.."I said as I took off my shoes, my shirt, my undershirt and began taking my pants off.


She felt my erection which was bursting out of my shorts and her eyes got huge....."Oh My God Cole...It seems like it gets bigger everytime I touch it." said Nicole Butler..

"I think you may be right." I said.

"WOW!" she said and just stared at it and shook her head... I pulled Nicole to me and began kissing up and down her neck... and sucking on her breasts.....She moaned loudly and began softly rubbing my penis....


I began to shudder....Finally I laid her across the bed...We continued to kiss passionately until I could no longer take it....I spread her legs and entered her....She wrapped her legs around my back...

Nicole wanted me to go fast, but I chose to go slow....deep....her mouth opened wide...but no air came out.....her eyes began to roll in her head...she was panting....Then I began to move in and out...faster and faster.....

"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH....Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu Cole...ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmgh..." she moaned and tossed both pillows on the floor....

Since we had been re-united at that wedding after not seeing each other for four years, Nicole and I had been having mind blowing sex like this on a monthly basis..Either She would come to D.C. or I would take the train up to Philly...Finally at the beginning of the year...I quit my job...Got a job at Mr. Foxworth's law firm  here in Philly and moved about six blocks from Nicole Butler's apartment...

I had helped the Private Investigator, Kevin Morris out on two or three cases and had done some other interesting litigation with Robert Foxworth and my college chum, Chance Howard, who was a partner there..The work was so interesting that I didn't care that I was only making the same amount of money I made in D.C....I loved this job...

I had missed Nicole, because I had been so busy lately....but I mas more than ready to make it up to her... She had been busy too.. Now we were getting busy in this hotel room.



"Ohhhhh Cole...Don't stop...Don't stopppppppp.." she moaned....

I pulled out...I rolled her over ,I applied some KY jelly and slowly began to enter her from the rear....I loved her rear end...whether she was in panties or it was all out,like it was now...


"Ouuu Cole...go easy..easssssssy...ouuuuuu take it easyyyyyy..ouuuuuuuuuuu.." she moaned as I softly and gently entered her....


We eventually wound up in the missionary position again.....She tossed another pillow off of the bed...and surprisingly...I came with a fury...a lot sooner than I had planned...I just couldn't take any more...  Nicole came herself..shortly afterwords...



We caught our breath and we lie across the bed with no pillows....and the sheets all messed up....

"Phew...that was something..."I said.

"Cole, we are crazy...you know?" she said.

"How?" I asked.

"We rented a hotel room downtown, when we live six blocks from each other and could have done this at your place or mine." she giggled..

"That would have been boring...We always do it at your spot or mine...This was like a fantasy....You got to wear your new lingerie for me and the heels." I said.

''Oh you liked that huh?" she said.

"Yeah it was like a fantasy..."I said.

"It felt like we were sneaking around to me.." she laughed.

"Yeah ,now didn't that enhance the whole experience?" I asked.

"Boy, you crazy!" she laughed....

Just Say


People write and say a lot about love
But at times they get a little too deep..
It's the lack of subtlety and glut of simplicity
That puts the average person to sleep..
You see, all I set out to do was to write a simple love song
to you..
But before I do...All I need is just three words from you to make
my dreams come true../


Just say...
you love me..
Say, Say you love me...
Say you need me..
And place only God Above me../

People struggle needlessly, trying to be hip..
Trying various alternatives..
And new ways of defining relationships
to me..
It's all such a waste of time...
Just three simple words from you...
Is all I need for peace of mind.....


Just say...
you love me..
Say, Say you love me...
Say you need me..
And place only God Above me../

Just say...
you love me..
Say, Say you love me...
Say you need me..
And place only God Above me../

The Legend of Tennessee Wilkins


Kenny "Silk" Wooten and his lawyer ,Tennessee Wilkins sat in a Seafood Bistro in South Jersey and enjoyed Lobster ,Cracked Crab and a bottle of White Wine... Silk was too smart to ever talk on a phone or in an office...and for something as sensitive as this...He was meeting his attorney at a spot I had never heard of...Unknown to him...I not only knew where he was..(.Owen Todd had put a GPS device under his Bentley)But I could hear his conversation quite well...

See , his "attorney" was not really a lawyer at all...it was consumate con man, Pakastani Sam...

Sami "Pakastani Sam" Ali was no more from Pakastan than I was....His parents had come over here from Pakastan in the 50's and to my knowledge...He had never even been to Pakastan....What he was ,was an old school playa..".The con man's con man" is what Gus called him... I had met him in Josies a couple of years ago and he had held me, Clerow, Kool Kat and Sean Jackson captive with his stories about the sophisticated cons he pulled back in the day....He was a colorful old guy who dressed immaculately. He was close to 80 years old, but still got around pretty good..He had been retired for years, but jumped at the chance to pull this or any elaborate con....

It wasn't about the money for him...It was the challenge ,the art of the con....I had used Marco Gervay and a number of unsavory types to put the word out that if you needed a good attorney , who didn't mind bending the law a bit... Then "Tennessee Wilkins" was your man.... Buck bit the bait and turned his boss, Kenny "Silk" Wooten on to him....

Kenny "Silk"Wooten asked him to meet him at this bistro to discuss his case.... Peeping Tom had wired him up perfectly ...in a place where it wouldn't be found...Now safely away from his office and any prying ears...He was free to talk..

"So what about my case? " asked Silk...

"Well...I looked over what they have against you and the way I see it...You can walk as long as nobody is around who can hurt you." said Wilkins....

"Well, I took care of that...There's two people who will never testify against me..Heh heh,heh...Did your guy locate that book keeper and that accountant?" asked Silk

"Yes....One is in Baltimore...or rather he was....and the other one was right over here in New Jersey....My investigator is the best in the business..He's a regular hound dog..." said Wilkins....

"So the guy you got ...To uh handle that bit of business for us handled it right?" asked Silk.

"Yes...They are both dead, just as you specified....and nobody will ever find either one of them...My guy is good...real good...makes folks disappear..." said Wilkins.

"Good...Without their testimony...the board has nothin..absolutely nothin to tie me to Madison or Clemmons...it looks like they will take the blame for everything.and they're both dead..so case closed." said Silk.

"That board still will never take you back." said Wilkins..

"Doesn't matter...I'm planning to take a little vacation...some place warm..with cold drrinks...Come back when the heat is off and find another pension fund." said Silk.

"It's good your name isn't on anything.Outside of that..all they have is hearsay." said Wilkins...

"Never that...I may not be a real lawyer, but I aint no fool." said Silk...

"Now what about Buck?" asked Wilkins...

"What about him?" asked Silk..

"He killed Madison, Clemmons and that girl Scott didn't he?   He could be the most dangerous weapon used against you." said Wilkins..

"Buck won't roll...Not in a million years...He's a soldier...Besides..I sent him to D.C. ,just to get him out of the way..." said Silk...

"You know, you should have hired seperate ,professional hitters to do all of those jobs...That way...nobody close to you woulda been implicated." said Wilkins..

"Nah ,that cost too much money..Buck works cheap...hahahahahahahahahaha...Hey counselor...you sure you a lawyer? You sound like a gangster.." laughed Silk... "He got a little sloppy with Clemmons and the babe..but he got the job done...heh heh heh." laughed Silk.

"Okay good...with all of your witnesses gone....You'll beat all of those charges and they won't be able to pull up any murder charges." laughed Wilkins....

"Great....Now like I said, I'm going to have to find another pension board to get on and find another pigeon to set up....Oh...before I forget...I need your boy to do one more job for me..." said Silk.

"Who?  You got rid of all of your witnesses.." said Wilkins..

"This one is personal...a damn private investigator named Kevin Morris, who sticks his damn nose into too much business....I already got his address..I want him gone...With him out of the way..I'll feel a whole lot better..." said Silk...

"I'm going to need another 600G's for that.He aint gonna like being called on so soon." said Wilkins..

"Who cares what he likes? He's working for me...he'll do what I say and what I pay for...Explain that to him..." SCREAMED Silk.

"Okay...Okay..you want somebody dead...then dead they'll be..." said Wilkins...

"Good, that damn Kevin Morris got me fired from the board and he was the one that got that babe all scared and worried...I hated killing her...that was one fine babe...I was gonna tap that eventually." he said.

"That was Clemmons girl!" said Wilkins...

"Yeah, and?" said Silk...

"You somethin man...Anyway...we'll meet tonight in town...bring the money..I'll pay my investigator and the hitter." said Wilkins..

"Good...I'll see you tonight in town." said Silk

(Click!)


At a motel, a few miles away..Me,Sean Jackson, Kool Kat,Owen Todd, Clerow, Peeping Tom and Lockpick Johnson all listened to this conversation and laughed our heads off...

"Damnnnnn...Pakastani Sam could sell ice to a polar bear." said Kool Kat...

"He's got him confessing to three murders as well as bleeding the pension fund..." I said.

"Not to mention soliciting the murders of two potential witnesses against him and you..." said Peeping Tom....

"Yeah, how about that?"I said.

"Let's get back to town...this ought to be rich." laughed Clerow.

II-


It was close to midnight when Kenny "Silk" Wooten drove up in his Bently and walked over to a car that held Lee Spann, my private investigator friend and a big six foot ,three white man, who stood next to him....

"Hey I thought you was comin alone?." ...said Silk.

"Hey I would have , but my guy here wanted to meet you." said Wilkins.

"Meet me for what?" said Silk.

"Just go meet him...The short white boy is my investigator...Lee...you give him the dough." said Wilkins...

''The Big guy is your hitter?"asked Silk.

"Yup...best in the business." said Wilkins.

Silk walked over and shook both men's hands...

"Pleased to meet you...They call me Silk." he said.

"I was on my way out of town and you're askin me to risk my life to kill somebody else...I wanted to know just who I'm working for." The bigger man said..

"You're gettin paid...what do you care?" said Silk

"You got the dough?" asked Lee Spann...''After all, it took me awhile to find them two witneses."he said.

"Yeah..yeah...here is the dough....and if you don't mind hanging around..after I read that Kevin Morris is dead...I'll pay you a bonus.I want his body found!" snapped Silk..

"Sure.You got another gun?" asked the gruff would be hitman..

"You don't have a gun?  " asked Silk....

"I tossed the one I used to ace those two witnesses...and I didn't bring a spare.." he said.

Kenny gave him a side eye..."Yeah ,I got a throw down gun in my trunk...It was stolen from an armory in New York...It aint registered nowhere." he said. "Is this your first time? You ever done this before?" Silk asked jokingly...

"Actually it is...See...I'm a cop!" said the man as he grabbed Silk ,handcuffed him and through him on the car....

"What?? A Cop???  Heyyyyyyy..." screamed Silk...

At this point..I walked out, with Kool Kat,Owen Todd, Clerow, Sean Jackson, Peeping Tom and Lockpick Johnson as Silk was being read his rights.

"How ya doin Silk? Hows business?" I sneered..."We got every blood thirsty word on tape...You're goin down for three murders and solicitation of three more..." I laughed.

"That's where you're wrong smart guy....Attorney -client priveledge...You can't use anything I said to my attorney in court" he laughed...

''Gee, you really must be a lawyer."I said.

''I watch Television."sneered Silk.

The undercover detective said with a straight face- "Kev, I think he's right."..Then he busted out laughing....We all did...

Wilkens or Pakastani Sam walked over, looked at Silk, shook his head and said- "I'm not an attorney son."

"I pinched this guy ten years ago for bunco..." said the undercover detective...

''What?"said Silk.

"He's no more an attorney than you are." said the detective...

We all laughed...

Silk's head dropped....."Ohh My God...." he said..."I don't beleive this....I'm goin to jail...I aint never been to jail in my life...Ohh My God..." he sighed..

"Pack a toothbrush man." added Clerow....I slapped him on the back and continued to laugh..Then I looked at Silk..

"Ohhh Lord...." sighed Silk, not even looking at me...His mind was on other things...

"Oh yeah tough guy....The FBI pinched your boy, Buck down in D.C. and he's singing like Diana Ross and the Supremes...He gave you up in a heartbeat and nobody had to hit him with a rubber hose.So much for him bein a soldier" laughed Kool Kat...

Silk looked like he wanted to cry...as more police converged on the parking lot...
He just kept shaking his head... "I don't beleive this...I'm goin to jail...ohhhh lord...oh God, help me...ohhhhhhh lordddd!.."

I stood off to the side by myself....

"Jack....Marilyn...This one was for you." I thought to myself as they dragged Silk off.

EPILOUGE:


Kenny "Silk" Wooten was convicted of three murders, solicitiation and conspiracy to murder witnesses and fraud,wire fraud,and an assortment of RICO charges...He was sentenced to Death on state charges,plus life with no possibility of parole in federal court...He was done.

On a rainy Saturday Morning, Sepia and I sat in our favorite coffee shop, enjoying pastries and tumblers of hot coffee..

"Wow...it sure is a shame about your friends....Jack and Marilyn...I really liked them." she said.

"Yeah..they were misguided innocents and unfortunately they had to pay the ultimate price for that." I said.

"At least you got Silk and Buck....This time the good guys won."  she said.

"Yeah...this time.." I said as I sipped my tumbler of coffee.

Reconsideration


I presented all of the documentation I had considering the financial rape of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Workers Pension Fund Board by Kenny ''Silk"Wooten and Jack Clemmons... If Jack wasn't going to make a stand ...I had to...Now that Marilyn was dead. I no longer cared anymore. I hadn't seen Jack since the murder of Marilyn Scott and that had been about a week now...I had heard that he had been drinking heavily.  He had resigned his position on the pension fund board.

"Mr. Morris...I appreciate your research very much...I had no idea this kind of foolishness was going on..." said the Board Chairman...Farley Mathis...

''Yes...Yes..Kevin is a close, personal friend of mine and when I got wind of this foolishness going on...I called him in on it."said Rollie Rollerson, which was a lie...but I let him get away with it.

"Good work Rollerson...Alright...Helga...Get Mr. Wooten in here right away." said Farley Mathis..

Kenny "Silk" Wooten strolled into the office with a tumbler of coffee..He had a bit of chit chat with one of the female administrative assistants...She laughed at whatever it was he said...And he chuckled...I wanted to knock that silly smile off of his face.

"Hey boss..what's going on?" he said...He then looked at me and Rollie Rollerson...

"Wooten....I've been going through these records...and I don't like what I see." said Mathis...

"Huh...What?" said a startled Kenny Wooten..

"These records go back over two years....You and Jim Madison have been bleeding our pension fund dry and covering it up...Then after he died, it appeared that you and Clemmons have been doing the same thing....Five defaulted loans...Millions of dollars..ahhhhhhhhhhhhh" said Mathis angrily!

"Huh...Now wait a minute...my name isn't on anything...I-I had nothing to do..." he sttuttered..

"Your influence and your dummy company that doesn't exist is all here in these documents....Oh and we found your accountant and your bookkeeper friends, Yeah....Before I fired  both of them, they verified everything that is in these files involving fraudulent loans and cooked books..sound familiar?, Whats more, on a DVD ,Marilyn Scott left , she corroborated everything the accountant and the bookkeeper told us ,before she met her untimely death last week.....I want you to clean out your desk....We are going to be pressing legal charges against you..." screamed Farley Mathis....who looked like he was just seconds from beating the crap out of Silk.

"Wait,wait.. this is all a mistake...All a big misunderstanding Mr. Mathis I'm asking for reconsideration..." said Kenny Wooten.

"I'll say it is...a two year mistake that we made allowing you on this board...Get your things and get the hell out...You'll be hearing from our attorneys.NOWConsider that!" said Farley Mathis.

Rollie Rollerson looked at me and smiled.....I wanted to enjoy this moment,but I couldn't...He still wasn't getting what he deserved for murdering Marilyn Scott...But at least he was off this board....I told both the accountant and the book keeper to pack a bag and get out of town for a few weeks.  I didn't want them to suddenly wind up in the river..They both thanked me and left Philadelphia promptly..I was the only person who knew their whereabouts!

"You're not even a lawyer...Apparently you lied about that and mis-represented yourself completely...Did you tell the truth about anything?, Just get the hell out Wooten...youuuu disgust me! " added Farley Mathis...

I had done some research and had pulled his application and then had done further checking and had discovered that he lied about going to college and he lied about being a lawyer as well...I presented this to the board also....But I still wasn't satisfied...I wanted him in jail!!

Just as Kenny Wooten was about to leave....Jack Clemmons burst into the office...He looked like he had been drinking...He walked up to Kenny Wooten and punched him in the jaw, knocking him down...

"You rotten son of a bitch...you murdered Marilyn...You murdered her...I shoulda listened to Kevin...I shoulda...." he screamed...

Kenny got to his feet and stared at Jack.....

"NOBODY HITS ME AND JUST WALKS AWAY"he screamed!!!

"I'm going to the FBI and I'm gonna tell em about you and your punk boy, Buck..I'm gonna tell em everything you damn crook..." he yelled...

"I wouldn't do that if I were you." said Silk.

"Oh yeah? What are you gonna do about it?" screamed Jack.  People were crowding around...They apparently heard all of the yelling.

I grabbed Jack.....

"Jack...Jack...you're drunk...Come on...Come on..." I said , as I hustled him out of the room...

"You were right Kev...You were right...I shoulda listened to you...Now my sweet Marilyn is dead....deadddd..deadddddddddddddddddd.." he cried.

Kenny "Silk" Wooten followed us into the hall.....He was still staring...He looked at me with pure white hatred in his eyes...

"This was YOU...Your doing....You're gonna pay for this." he said.

I pushed Jack aside and walked up to Silk....My hand was on my gun....It was shaking....He saw it and he backed up...

"What did you say ?" I asked him.

Silk said nothing....He just rolled his eyes........Rollie Rollerson and Farley Mathis got in between us...

"Wooten...Get out of here before I call security!" said Farley Mathis.

I turned around and Jack was gone....

II-


That night, Clerow, Owen Todd ,Kool Kat and I sat in Josies...Having a few beers...Gus came over to where we were...

''So you got Silk fired huh?" he laughed...

"Yeah....I don't have enough to put him in jail for murder like he belongs...but at least he won't be raping that pension fund anymore...You know he had the nerve to threaten me?" I said.

"I wouldn't take that lightly kid...He's a dangerous guy." said Gus.

"Gus...I'm dangerous." I said... Gus smiled...

"Yes you are kid...yes you are..." he said.

Kool Kat, Owen Todd and Clerow laughed .....but our laughter was soon to be short lived..

My Android went off....It was Sean Jackson!!!

''What's going on Sean?" I said.

"Kev...it's Jack!  He's dead....Get over to his apartment complex....Man..it's bad..He either jumped or was pushed out of the 22nd floor window." he said.

''I'm on my way." I said.

"What's up Kev?" said Kool Kat.

"Come on guys...It's Jack Clemmons.....He's dead." I said...

"What the hell?" said Gus..

III-


Gus went with us...he left Honey Brown in charge of the bar...Sean Jackson waved us over....Lt.Sissy Van Buren and several Homicide detectives and policemen were already there...a crowd of people had gathered in the street....Jack's body was covered!

Kool Kat, Owen Todd,Clerow ,Gus and I walked up.....Lt. Sissy Van Buren looked at me....

"Your friend ,wasn't he?" she asked...

"Yeah...he was my friend..." I said.

"He worked at that pension fund didn't he? Just like that girl last week and like that man who's body we found in the park....What's going on there?" she asked.

"More than I can prove." I said.

"We checked the security cameras...Nothing.....and nobody seems to have seen anything....From the looks of his room..We don't know if he jumped or was pushed." she said.

"He was thrown out." I said.

"You know this?" she said.

"I can't prove it..." I said.

"Give me a name" she said.

"It doesn't matter." I said...

I looked at the body......I remembered one of our last conversations.




"Aww Kevin, you're crazy...Stop with the private eye jive okay...There is no conspiracy here...This is a business deal...Things happen in business." said Jack.


"...Silk is a drug dealer....Everybody on the streets in Philly knows who and what he is..Everybody except you." I said.


"What does he do with his money?...With the money you give him?" I asked.


"He's investing in some properties...a big real estate deal in New York...It's going to make us a pile of dough.."said Jack...


"Is that what he told you?.....It's going to make Silk a pile of dough...It's not going to make you a dime...Have you made any money yet? These guys are bad people and you don't make contracts with them...Once they don't need you, Once they can't use you anymore...the contract expires and when the contract expires...So do you...Ask James W. Madison." I said.


''Aww Kev...this is just business...MY BUSINESS...NOT YOURS." screamed Jack

Then I thought about our conversation, a week ago at another scene just like this-




"Marilyn.....Oh my God...Marilyn.....She's ......She's....:"


"She's dead, stupid..Still think your business partner is on the up and up?" I said.

I just stood there looking at his dead, broken body, feeling like I didn't do enough to save him....Hard to believe that it was only weeks ago we were all eating dinner....

"You gonna be alright kid?" asked Gus...

"Yeah...I suppose." I said.

"You know that he's coming after you next?" said Kool Kat.

"I worry about that like I worry about the sun coming up the next day." I said.

"Well...Look...he's out at the Pension board...so whoever he works for in New York has got to be pretty pissed at him right now...and he's about to be brought up on charges...What do you think he's doing right now?" asked Kool Kat.

"Trying to find a good lawyer." I said. "And a hitman!"  I smirked...

"So...why don't we give him a good lawyer?" said the big man...

''What?"....Then I began to smile...."Ohhhhhhhhhh...I got'cha...You've been hanging around me wayy too long big man...I like the way you think..." I said and smiled.
