The Long Good Night Kiss

Ingrid Rhodes was, no let me correct that...Is a beautiful and sexy woman....It doesn't hurt at all that she can sing too...I know...I heard her singing in a club in Honolulu...Where I was playing with the house band...
I'm a drummer, my name is Kory...Kory Ace....That's what they call me...Name on my birth certificate, Kory Williams.

I caught her staring at me the entire time we were playing behind us... She hired us to play for her last summer when she performed at Hickum Air Force Base...She liked us, so this summer when she played Honolulu again..She hired us again...

After our set...She walked over to me...

"Hey." she said.

"Hey, how are you Ms. Rhodes?" I said.

"You can call me Ingrid...We are practically the same age...." she said,laughing lightly.

"I'm doin good...So nice to see you again....Say how are things in Philly?" I asked.

"You from Philly?" she asked.

''Yup...born and raised..... " I said.

"So how did you end up in Hawaii?" she asked.

I laughed...

"Just lucky I guess...I graduated from High School, Went in the Air Force...Served six years and got out and then got a full time job at Hickum AFB where I had been stationed and played gigs on the side.. I used the G.I. Bill to go to the University here...got my degree and so far haven't decided if I'm going to stay here or not." I said.

'Wow...That's some story Kory....So you've away from home for about six years huh?" she asked.

"Ten, but who's counting?" I said and we laughed....I ordered her a few drinks and we talked well into the night.

I didn't see her again until earlier this year when she performed in Okinawa, Japan.,where I had moved to.. I wound up playing in her back up band there at the USO..

"Kory...If you ever decide to come back to Philly, I have a spot for you in my regular band." she said and gave me her card, with her address , cell phone number and home phone number.
"Gee thanks Ingrid..." I said.

"No thank you....Call me sometimes....Anytime." she said kind of seductively.

She smiled and winked at me and walked away...

II-

I did call her a couple of times after she left Okinawa ....She seemed very grateful, that I'd even remembered...We texted each other and eventually Skyped....

It didn't take me long to pack up my things and head  back to my hometown.  I needed a place to live..She gave me the phone number and address of a friend...Mr. Clerow Hamilton...Clerow rented me a house on credit....I promised him I'd pay and soon...

I got a job at the local High School with my friend, Kerry "88" Moore...A keyboardist who I used to play sessions with and Ingrid signed me up right away to her band... We played a couple of dates at Josies and at Mulberry Street and in no time, I had Clerow's rent for up to two months and enough money left over to put some groceries in my fridge and to send for my furniture , which I had in storage...Life was good.

So finally, last Friday Night, We played an encore gig at Josies.... Ingrid sang like an angel and this band she had put together was cooking...The crowd was going crazy....They called for an encore...We came out and played two more sets...The crowd loved it.....Ingrid came out and bowed...Then she said introduced the band members...She saved me for last....

'' Last but not  least .. the guy who keeps the rhythm going in my band and Other places... My drummer, Mr. Kory Ace!" she said as the audience laughed sheepishly.....Then to my surprise...she walked over to me and gave me a long, slow, sensual kiss in the lips that was more than just friendly, more than just gratitude!!!
I returned her passion...I had been wanting to kiss her and do more ever since I had met her, but had kept that a secret..  We held that kiss a little longer than usual.... The crowd ate it up...ouuuing and ahhhing and clapping hysterically!

Our embrace finally broke...I was obviously blushing....Ingrid looked at me and whispered in my ear -"There is more from where that came from....If you want it." she said.  I was stunned..


III-

> Our sets were over...The crowd continued to enjoy music coming from the second band that was performing...I ordered two drinks and sat down at a small table in the corner... Ingrid sat down with me...I could tell that she had been drinking...

"I hope I didn't embarrass you with that kiss...It was just an impulse." she said.

"Not embarrassed at all...In fact, I'm hoping we can do that again....Just uh, not in front of an audience." I laughed...

Ingrid laughed and looked at me with sheer surprise.....

"Ouuuuuuu...you are naughty Mr. Ace." she said.

I was naughty? She was the one who had initiated!

She never said if we could or couldn't...We just sat quietly and listened to the second band and talked about other things, the state of music today, sports, et al...Finally, it was nearly closing time and I arose to head towards my car...

"Kory!" she said...

"Yeah?" I asked.

"You said you'd like to kiss me again?" she asked.

"Yeah...And you never said if we could or couldn't?" I said.

"You want to stop by my place for coffee?" she asked.

"Uh yeah...after all of this drinking...I could use a cup." I said.

"You know where I live...Stop by in about an hour..." she said.

"Okay.." I said, getting very excited...She walked me to the door...but didn't leave with me...She smiled and winked at me as I got in my car and drove off...

IV-




Finding Ingrid's Apartment wasn't hard...I had been there once before...Once inside...I noticed that there was no pot of coffee brewing anywhere in her spotless kitchen...She noticed that I was scanning the room and she laughed..

"You didn't really come over here for coffee , did you?" she laughed.

"No..I sure didn't." I said and pulled her towards me...She was dressed in just a short t-shirt and panties...I pulled her towards me and kissed her....It was a long ,soft and sensuous kiss ,much like the one we shared on the bandstand, but this time in her living room away from prying eyes...and longer than that one...

I got an immediate erection...I was a little embarrassed..I don't know why,.Ingrid stared in my eyes kind of strangely...We were alone in her living room after all.. She slowly and descretely ran her hands down my leg, felt my erection and squeezed it a little bit....Her eyes grew wide and she looked at me...
"Oh My God!!!.." she said and smiled slyly at me....

I lifted up her t-shirt and rubbed her nice wide and soft rear end...

"Myyy Myyyy.." I said.

"You like that huh?" she said...

"Yes indeed.." I said.

She felt my erection again....Her eyes got large....

"I like this!" she said and giggled...

I kissed her, thrusting my tongue practically down her throat and rubbing her breasts...I could feel Ingrid trembling....and moaning softly....I eased her panties off of her and layed her across the bed....

"Aren't you going to take your pants off and stay awhile?" she said....I eased out of my shoes, socks and trousers and she unbuttoned my shirt....I wasn't wearing an undershirt...She began rubbing my chest...

"It's getting cold out baby...you need to wear an undershirt...but it's okay tonight...Mama is gonna take care of that." she cooed.

I grabbed a condom from her night stand....and begin putting it on.. It occurred to me that she had had this night all planned out!

I open her legs and I enter her very slowly...Surprisingly, she is already wet and I begin to maneuver very easily inside of her...My mind is going in many directions...Like how did this happen? Why was this happening?  At a time like this, I didn't care..

''Ohhhhhh baby, you feel so damn good" I moaned..

"Ohhhhhhhh Koy, so do you baby....." she moaned...

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..." I moaned...

 "Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu..." she moaned as we continued to kiss... .I pressed the head of my pulsing penis into her dripping wet vagina, then pulled out again.She moaned...

"Ohhhh, don't tease me...ohhhh, give it all to me..."

 I entered her several more times like this, until I could feel her pushing harder and harder against me. I grabbed her hips, and pushed all the way into her. She gasped, ''OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MY GAWDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD! OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU." as she jerked forward for a moment, then braced herself before thrusting her nice round behind back against my penis. I watched, as each thrust sent waves rippling through her like waves breaking on the shore. We went at it just like this for close to two hours..her moans gradually became louder and louder. I grabbed her hair from behind, and pushed her head into the pillow. Her arms reached for the headboard of the bed and gripped it tightly as her vagina contracted in orgasmic releases.

"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, MOREEEEEEEEEEEEE, MOREEEEEEEEEEEE" she yelled at the top of her lungs....

This got me so excited that I came violently...and so did she! Gasping and screaming as if for air!






We both lay in her bed, exhausted, thoroughly satisfied and sweating as though it was a summer day!




''Woooo..I needed that....You don't know how bad I needed that." she sighed..

"Yeah me too!" I said. I rolled over and looked at Ingrid...

"No boyfriend huh?" I said.

"No, not in a year....I have been so lonely...I just through everything into my work." she said.

"I thought so...I've been kind of hit and miss myself....I can't say it's been a year, but it has been awhile." I said.

"Thank you soo much Kory." she said.

"I guess that's the end of us gigging together huh?" I said.

"Not really...you've got a job in my band as long as you want it." she said.

"What else have I got as long as I want it?" I asked slyly....

She smiled, she didn't say anything for a long while....

"I guess we can uh have a little arrangement and see where it goes...And uh,if it doesn't work out...We can uh, still be friends." she said.

"You sure?" I said...

"I'm not sure about anything anymore." she sighed...

"Me neither...but I sure enjoyed this." I said.

"Of course you did....So did I...We were two hungry dogs..." she said.

"You're right....Let's just uh cool it for awhile...Then if there is something there...We can do this again...If not, then you know...It was cool." I said.

"You're so cool Kory...Thanks for making it easy." she said with a smile..

"Of course." I said.

We both lie there in bed for a long time...Not saying anything to each other, just staring at the ceiling!

I Think About You



Hey girl,
I thought by now the pain would
be gone..
but it appears that I
have thought wrong...
so how come?
How come it's that way?
You see,
I did everything the gurus
said I should do...
and it's been some time
since I've even seen you...
but the pain doesn't go away...
so how come?
How come I still feel that way?


I think about you...
I still do...
Hey girl,
I think about you
Everyday....
I
think about you
even though I try not
to...
But at some time of the day...
I find myself thinking about
you...
in many ways../


I dream about when we
first kissed...
and the butter like smoothness
of your lips..
and I find myself asking why...
Why is that?
I often wonder if you find yourself..
Thinking about me..
Even when you're with someone else??
and I don't know why...
Why would I think that?/

I thought by now the pain would
be gone..
but it appears that I
have thought wrong...
so how come?
How come it's that way?
You see,
I did everything the gurus
said I should do...
and it's been some time
since I've even seen you...
but the pain doesn't go away...
so how come?
How come I still feel that way?/


I think about you...
I still do...
Hey girl,
I think about you
Everyday....
I
think about you
even though I try not
to...
But at some time of the day...
I find myself thinking about
you...
in many ways../

Like Lovers Do



''Ohhhh wowwwww..Look at this !!!!!  So this is how the Assistant District Attorney lives huh?" exclaimed Detective Carlotta Rodriguez....We had just left Josies...We had had a long conversation amongst other things in the parking lot and we had uh, decided to give a relationship a try....At least I had...She hadn't really been specific about just what she wanted...


But right now...I know what I wanted... I, Keith Porterhouse Wallace, Assistant District Attorney just wanted to relieve her of that dress and her underwear and make sweet love to her....yet..I knew that with her, I just couldn't come out like that...She had only asked to see where I lived.



"This is some spot.." she mused.

"I'm not paying as much for it as you may think...I got it from Chris Thompson and Chess." I said.

''Wow...Who doesn't rent or buy from them?  They own all of the real estate in this area and I am talking about real estate" she laughed...

"Yeah, I know...they have nice places.." I said.

I grew up in the neighborhood and I knew ,as I'm sure she did about Chris Thompson's gangster past...but he was smart enough to give that up long before he would have been indicted for something and locked up...He gave it up and entered into a business partnership with his friend, Chess that had become a boon to the community....I was proud of them both..
II-


"Let me show you around." I said.

I took her by the hand and showed her around my place....She was very impressed...

"Did you know I was coming?" she asked, giggling a bit.

"No...How would I have known I'd run into you tonight?" I asked.

"Because it's a Friday night and you stopped in Josies and if you're looking for anyone who is anyone...you stop in Josies." she laughed. "But more so, your place is so neat and clean for it to belong to a guy." she said and smiled...

I laughed and leaned up against the wall....She looked around...

"You've got a cute bedroom....." she said.

There was an awkward silence....then finally, I said something...

''You're cute too." I said.

"You didn't bring me here and just stop to tell me that though did you?" she said slyly.

I laughed....

''What?" she laughed....

''No...I didn't.." I said.

"Well what did you bring me up here for?" she asked.

"I want to take your clothes off.." I said...

"I know that...and if I didn't want to take em off, I wouldn't have stood here this long." she said.

I pulled her to me and kissed her softly....running my hands through her long hair and working my way down to that beautiful, round apple posterier of hers...she playfully moved my hands away and said...

''How long have you wanted to do that?"

"Godddd...soooo long." I said.

"I know....I've caught you staring at me a few times." she laughed...

I kissed her in the doorway of my room for a few minutes...


''Dammn girl, you got some soft lips..."I said.

"You've told me that." she said.

"It's true..." I moaned...as we continued to kiss.

''Glad you like it." she said and proceded to give me the slowest softest most sensual kiss I've ever had in my life....

She allowed her hands to wander down my trousers to the crotch area....She felt what now must have been a raging, bulging erection...Her eyes got wide like a childs on Christmas day and she looked at me....

''WOWWWWWWW...playboy!" she said....."You are ready papi." she said....It was the first bit of spanish she had used all day..

I squeezed her breasts....then I slipped her dress off slowly, gently.... and watched as she eased out of her pantyhose and shoes...My pants were already off ...as were my socks and shoes and I was kissing her again and easing her towards the bed...

''Slow down Keith...I'm not going anywhere.." she whispered as she continued kissing me. "I want you as much as you say you want me." she said.

"I'm glad...but can't you tell?" I asked...

She felt my now engorged penis....and shook her head again...

''You are sooo nasty..who would have thought that?" she joked...as we stood in the middle of the floor semi-naked, kissing and fondling each other...

III-


She looked at my fully unsheathed member and just put both of her hands to her face in amazement.... "Oh My God....Look at youuuuuuuu." she said.....

  "Look at you baby." I said as I unhooked her purple laced bra and began sucking on her breasts.... "Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh aye papi...." She moaned , all the while holding my penis with both of her hands and rubbing it....

I kissed her, thrusting my tongue practically down her throat and rubbing her breasts...I could feel Carlotta trembling....and moaning softly....I eased her matching purple laced bikini panties off of her and layed her across the bed.... I grabbed a condom....and begin putting it on....Carlotta is trembling something crazy now as if she is coming already.... I smiled warmly at her...Such a tough detective and now, such a vulnerable woman...I loved it...

I opened her legs and I entered her very slowly...Surprisingly, she is already wet and I begin to maneuver very easily inside of her...

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.. Keith...Keitttttttttth.ouuuuuuu.." she moans and cums very easily as I begin... She holds me and wraps her legs around my back as I really begin going in and out of her....I pinch myself...I can't believe that I'm actually doing this..with her!!!  But it's real...it's no dream this time!!...I feel like I've died and gone to heaven..

"OHHHH MY GOD.....OHHHHHHHHHHHHH.." she screams!

" Carlotta,you don't know how long I've wanted to be inside of you." I say as I begin moving in and out at a much rapider pace than before...She cums again....hard...

"OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuweeeeeeeeeeeee
...PAPPI..." she howls....


We got into a nice rhythm and began moving together slowly at first , for close to thirty minutes....I was trying to savor every moment, every minute...and then we began moving faster, harder... I stopped for a second...rolled her over and entered her from behind...

"You've fantasized about doing this to me, haven't you?" she asked...

"How did you know?" I asked.

"I can tell...ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.." she moaned as I entered her ,doggie style.

I could've stayed inside Carlotta like this forever , I just kept pounding and she kept moaning and grabbing ahold to the pillows and tossing them and moaning and howling...and I kept pounding in and out ,in and out for close to an hour...I was sweating profusely....so was she....I pulled out and turned her over facing me and began kissing her neck and her earlobes and her cheeks

Carlotta was a very loud lover and expressive one too....

"AYE DIOS MIO....OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH AYE DIOS MIO....AYE DIOS MIO PAPI...OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU..." she screamed as the bed began rocking furiously , headboard slamming against the bed....

I let out a yell myself....

"AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW LAWDDDDDDDDDDDD!"  and came furiously.....trembling!!!

Carlotta held me in her arms...

"Are you alright?" she asked.

I looked up at her and smiled...

"Yeah...I'm great....I'm freakin great." I said.

She laughed....

"Wow..I came about three or four times." she said.

''You did?"I said.

She shook her head...

''Never did that before..with anyone!"she said...

"Wow." I said.

She looked at me....

''Aye Dios Mio...You're still...you're still hard!!." she said.

"I'm afraid I am." I said.

"I want some more." I say after a few more minutes..

''What?" she asks incredulously...

"I want some more." I said again...

"It's been a long time for you hasn't it?" she asked.

"Stop bein a cop." I joked...

"Okay!" she said obediently and laughed...I loved her laugh, her playfulness.

I rolled over and began kissing her, wet ,sloppy kisses...I guided her over to me....I slowly moved her down on top of me...This way she could ride me and I could look at her...She's completely relaxed and I had no problem entering her...She was very wet....We continued to kiss as she moved up and down....

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...ummmmmmmmmmmmm.." she says as she begins moving up and down and I begin kissing her passionately as she moves up and down...

We went on like this for close to two hours...It was very INTOXICATING......

We both came together furiously and fell asleep just like that! In each others arms.

IV-


At least that's how I remember it!  When I woke up..I could smell food being prepared in my kitchen....I put on my bathrobe and walked into the kitchen..Carlotta was wearing one of my shirts and fixing Pancakes and Sausage...


I looked at her and smiled.

"I hope you don't mind...I kind of worked up an appetite.." she said.

I noticed two plates were set....

"I dont mind at all....You know I could get used to this." I said.

"Do you want to get used to this?" she asked.

"Sure do...You know I do...I'm not a one night stand kind of guy...I mean..I have been, but not with you...." I said.

I thought about how lame that sounded..I tried again!

"Look Carlotta..I'm usually this big aggressive self assured guy that puts dangerous criminals away...I come off as a guy that is supremely confident..Even arrogant at times ,I know....Yet when I'm around you....I can't finish a sentence...Nobody has ever made me feel like that...So nervous, so unsure, and  yet so excited......I knew when I first met you that you were special...I mean,damn Carlotta,everybody knows how I feel about you, but you." I said.

She looked at me and smiled..

"I do know....I just wanted to hear it from you." she said softly...

"So am I your man now?" I asked.

She looked at me like I was crazy...

"Keith, after what we did here last night and most of this morning and now....I've fixed us breakfast...You mean you have to ask?" she said. Then she smiled...

"I just wanted to hear it from you." I said. She nodded and smiled that sweet smile of hers...She gave me that long slow sensuous kiss of hers and sat on my lap...She rubbed my back...

''Feel Better?"she asked.

"I think you know the answer to that!" I said and  we kissed again...longer, slower.

She sat on my lap and began to feed me pancakes...We said nothing for a long while..
,We held each other and fed each other breakfast and sat in my loft ,like lovers do on a Saturday morning!

Plan A


We call this room 'The Tank" , It is like a fish tank when you think about it...One square rectangular table, three chairs...One dull flourescent light in the ceiling and a big two way window... We can look in at the suspect, but the suspect can't see us!

Haywood Coley Jr. sat in the little room....Lt. Sissy Van Buren of Homicide and I , Keith Wallace, Assistant District Attorney stood behind the glass watching..Detective Tyriq Pile sat in the chair next to him , saying nothing...Haywood sat in the chair as quiet as a church mouse...Cool as a cucumber...Detective ,Carlotta Rodriguez entered the tank...She was purposely thirty minutes late...She had two files under her arms...She didn't crack a smile...

Haywood smiled when he saw her...She didn't crack a smile...She didn't even acknowledge his presence..She just rifled through her files...Damn this girl was not only fine, but cool as a damn cucumber..I was getting an erection, just watching her work....even though she hadn't actually done anything.

Finally Haywood broke the eerie silence...

"Soooooo, what is this about?" he asked...Carlotta passed out some photos....Crime scene photos of Jessica Edgerly, Wilma Whetstone , Ruth Richardson and Allison Johnson as well as photos of them when they were still alive...

"You know Haywood...I had never heard of you until a few days ago when you came in here and put an innocent man in for a murder you know he didn't commit." said Carlotta.

"Oh that? Sorry, I must have been mistaken." he said....Not one iota of embarrassment at being caught in a lie.

"But you mistakenly collected the reward money didn't you?" she said.  Haywood laughed.

"So you're gonna put me in jail for that huh?" he sneered.

"I could....Making a false statement, filing a false report." she said.

"I led you to a body....Now I might have been mistaken about where I heard the story." he said.

"Where did you hear the story?" she asked.

"I don't remember." he laughed...Detective Pile and Carlotta laughed too....

"So Haywood, tell me about the girls." said Detective Pile.


''Don't know em." he said.

"You just lie through your teeth...You took classes with Wilma and Ruth....I got word from someone who would know that you visited both of them at their places of employment, "The Pleasure Palace" and "Pussy Galore" and you tried to hit on Jessica  Edgerly , the waitress at Sam Mother's joint." said Carlotta.




''Okay...So I knew them...That all you got?" he asked.

"You delver Pizza for Mr. Smuckey....You delivered pizza to all three of these girls on the night they were last seen alive." said Detective Pile.


"Yes sir...That's right..I did....Is that all you got?" he sneered...He was so sure of himself...

" I think you killed all four of these girls." said Carlotta.


Haywood smiled...

"You got a good circumstantial case....but that's all you got...You got no fingerprints and you got no DNA...and you got no witnesses...You got nothin....So if you have no further questions....I'm out of here." he said and got up...

Carlotta smiled her warmest, sweetest smile at him...

"Goodbye Haywood....for now...but I'll be seeing you soon...So don't take any long trips." she said and giggled like a school girl.

Haywood smirked-

"You cops...you're all alike...Always tryin to bluff when you know you got nothin..." he said.

"Since you're here...would you like a soda...a cigarette" asked Detective Pile...

"Nice try...Nah, I'll pass." he said....''See you guys around...Happy hunting." he said and he got up and walked out of the interview room.



I turned to Sissy who was beaming and I said to her...

''That's it?  You're going to let him walk.?...He just laughed in your face and what's more...He's right you know..All you have is a circumstantial case at best." I said.


"Relax Keith... I knew we didn't have much of a case against him when I brought him down here...I just wanted to see how he reacts and to shake him up a bit...We already have a plan to get him." she said.

Carlotta and Detective Pile  had walked over to me and Sissy by now....

"Plan A.He eats at Sam Mother's joint, Mabel Jenkins Soul Food joint and Jake's Hot Dogs...If he discards a knife or fork or spoon, we asked them to turn it in to us....We'll get his DNA.... I purposely didn't tell him about the DNA we have from two of the victims...If his DNA matches what we have from the crime scenes...He's done..." she said.

"Okay..And Plan B.I'm going to get a search warrant together to search his apartment...Serial Killers like to keep souveniers." I said.

"Good thinking." said Carlotta....It was like a compliment...I smiled.   Carlotta actually looked like she was blushing for a moment... Sissy and Detective Pile smiled at each other.

II-





I got the warrant to search Haywood's apartment, but we didn't pursue it yet....Within the next few days, Sam Mother, Mabel Jenkins Moore and Jake turned in knives, forks, spoons, soda cans and a bottle..all with Haywood's saliva on them and fingerprints...We got a wealth of DNA and fingerprint information...

While the DNA was being tested...Detective Tyriq  Pile, Detective Edwin "Duke" Baylor and some CSI guys discovered a latent fingerprint smudge at Allison Johnson's house...It was in her bedroom and it didn't match any of her family members...They found another latent fingerprint smudge in Wilma Whetstone's bedroom...


I was sitting in my office going over other case related stuff when my cell phone went off....To my surprise and my delight..it was Detective Carlotta Rodriguez!!




"Keith....You're never going to believe this"she said sounding more excited than ever before....

"What's that?" I asked.

''We got the DNA reports back and they're a match!!!....It's Haywood's...and the fingerprint smudges!!!!His too!" she said...

"That's great...Pick his ass up and while you doing that...I'm going to have Detective Pile and Detective Baylor execute a search warrant!" I said.

"Way ahead of you ADA...Sissy and six uniforms went to get him already." she said.

''What?? You didn't go? You're the primary!!!...You made this case!!!." I said.

"I-I wanted to be the one to break the news to you." she said.   I was astounded..plus I noticed that she called me Keith and not ADA.

''Well I--Well  uh....I'm glad....Thank you!" I said.

"You're welcome." she said and then hung up...I sat there for a minute and just smiled.

III-


Haywood Coley Jr. was arrested and charged with  the first degree murders of Jessica Edgerly, Wilma Whetstone, Allison Johnson and Ruth Richardson...Our search warrant of his apartment found, panties and bras belonging to the victims as well as loads of used condoms with even more DNA evidence....and stained sheets and porn magazines... Faced with a mountain of evidence against him...He confessed to all of the murders...That self confident sneer was permanantly wiped off of his face... He said that he had been attracted to Jessica, Wilma  and Ruth and that his amorous advances had been rebuffed , which threw him into a rage...

George Bailey had told him about how Allison, a "sweet young thang" he was selling weed to often came to her door half dressed ,showing off the goods...He had delivered pizza to her a few nights before he killed Wilma and had come on to her...but she laughed in his face...He raped her and strangled her and put her body in the back of his car...It was he who dumped her body at the zoo...Of all the women he killed, he only felt guilty about her...because she was so young he said...He had almost wanted to be punished for that.


He told us where we could find the remains of his first victim!!! A young white woman he murdered two years ago in Wynnewood!!! We didn't even know about that!! I called the Wynnewood Police and informed them of his revelation... This guy was a piece of work!! I helped them close a two year old missing persons /homicide case.. 22 year old Mary Decker had vanished seemingly into thin air while waiting for the R-5 suburban train one rainy night...Now she was found and avenged!
He accepted a plea agreement to avoid the death penalty and he was sentenced to Life without the possibility of parole. He is still awaiting trial in the death of Mary Decker!

 

EPILOUGE:


A week later , I stopped in Josies and Lt. Sissy Van Buren was sitting in a booth having a drink... I saw her and smiled and walked over to her booth..

"Drinking alone Lieutenant?" I asked...(She looked gorgeous)

"No...I'm not." she said.

"Oh...I'm sorry...Just came by to say "hi" and thanks for helping me wrap up that case." I said.

"Just doing our job ADA....You talk to your girl?" she asked.

"Carlotta?" I asked, knowing that that was who she was talking about. Actually, I hadn't seen or heard from Detective Rodriguez since the case was broken.

"No..haven't seen her." I said.

''Well...Here's your chance...I'm going to the ladies room...If you're not here when I get back..I'll understand." she said and winked as she got up.  Lawd today, Robert Foxworth was crazy for losing a fine woman like Sissy, I thought as I watched her walk away...I turned around to see Carlotta!

"Hello Keith!" she said.  Oh My God, this woman was fine....I thought to myself.


"It's Keith now , huh?" I said trying to sound cool.

"The case is over and we aren't at work. I thought I would have heard from you before now." she said.

"Yeah, that's right. I uh, I meant to call you or stop by the office, but I didn't know if it was right or if you, you know, uh..er..." I said.

"Listen ,I don't like to play around and I don't like to play games." she said.

"Yes, I know that." I said.

"Let's walk outside .Talk...I feel like you have something you might want to say to me." she said.

"You do? , uh Yeah..I do..Shoulda told you this a long time ago." I said.

She smiled...I was disarmed completely...She knew it too!

"What about Sissy's drink?" I said.

"Who is going to bother the drink that belongs to the Lieutenant of Philadelphia Homicide?" she asked.

"You uh got a point." I said.

 We walked out to the parking lot...

"Keith ,do you have any other girlfriends?" she asked.

''Wow, you get right to the point ,don't you?" I said.

''That's my job."she said.  She was in tough detective mode now.

"No....I mean have dated a few women here and there, but nobody special...I've been pretty much married to my work as have you." I said.

''Sissy told me."  she said..."I just wanted to hear it from you." she said.

"Sissy told you? You've been talking to Sissy about me?" I asked ,laughing.

"And you've been talking to her about me." she said.

"You're good Detective..You're damn good." I said.

"So..what do you want Keith?...Do you want to be my boyfriend or do you just want to sleep with me?" she asked.

"I think you know what I want Carlotta. You know that I'm not shallow like that...You have to believe me Carlotta...I don't know anything about your past...I don't know how many guys tried to hit on you...I don't know if you've been hurt before,but I'm not like that...I'll prove  it to you if you let me....." I said.

"Everybody's been hurt before Keith and if they haven't...Then they should be. Cops try to hit on me all the time..Perps even try to hit on me...But there was one guy!!Not a cop ,but the one guy I was a little attracted to and it turns out he is married and I would never deal with a married man." she said.


"Who is this married guy?" I asked.

"Nobody you need to concern yourself with...He's a good guy, a decent guy and he really loves his wife..I only thought about him for a minute..We never so much as had a conversation about it...I wouldn't." she said.

I hung my head...

"Oh.So I guess I'm plan B huh?" I said.

"Play your cards right and you're Plan A." she said softly...

"I'm a good card player." I said.  "I want you...I'm tired of playing games too...Ever since I first laid eyes on you, your first day at Special Victims Unit...I've wanted you...And I know we can't be all out in the open with what we are doing but-" I said before she interrupted me...

"You had me at you're a good card player." she said...and she kissed me...slowly and softly......

"Damn, that's good." I said.

"You like that huh?" she said..

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

"I like it too." she said.

We kissed again...

We walked over to her car and got in and closed the doors and made out like two teenagers for a few minutes.

Carlotta fixed her hair and tried to straighten out my shirt and suit jacket...She smiled...

"I suppose we'd better go back inside before we are missed." she said.


"Yeah, uh...that's a good idea." I said.

"So you want to try something? You know...Start a little  slow?" she said.

"Yeah...Yes...That would be nice...Let's start a little slow and see where this leads." I say..

"Okayyyyy, soo you are like my boyfriend now..." she said and smiled..

"Yeah...I like the way that sounds." I said.


She smiled  sweetly ....


When we returned to Josies, holding hands...Sissy was back, sitting at her table and smiling when she saw us...

"So ,I see you two ran into each other?" she said.

"Uh yeah...We were out in the parking lot..uh talking...talking about the case and some new assignments." I lied.

Sissy cracked up laughing...She slapped her thigh....

"Oh really huh?  Carlotta...I meant to tell you...Your transfer came through...You're officially a Homicide detective now....So is Detective Tyriq  Pile and Detective  ''Duke" Baylor ,who worked with me before is back!!....I've finally got some horses now..Some top notch investigators who can actually close cases.." she said.

"That's great! I mean uh, good for your unit! ,I got another guy who is scheduled to come over soon too.Real smart cat." I said... Sissy cracked up laughing and shook her head.

Carlotta held her head down...She didn't want me to see that she was laughing too.

Sissy looked at me....

"You might want to wipe Carlotta's lip stick off of your collar...Not a good look for you." she said. "Must have been some conversation." she laughed.

"No grass grows under your feet does it Sissy?" I said dryly...

"I've been doing this too long." she said.  "Be good to my girl Keith...She's my best detective." she said.

Carlotta beamed. Then she whispered to me...

"It just occurred to me Keith that I've never seen your apartment." she said.

"Huh??" I said.

"If you think that kiss was something... I've got some other tricks playboy, that you aint never seen." she said.

My eyes got as big as saucers...

Sissy smiled at us both.....

"Don't hurt him chica!" she laughed.

"I won't boss lady." she said.


Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! I thought... Hurt me baby!
