Just Say Goodnight..




I certainly had a nice time tonight...
I hope you enjoyed yourself
as well...
The wine was divine
and the dinner was superb...
I'll certainly have something good
to tell....
Maybe you'll let me walk you to your door...
and what's more..
Maybe I won't say something stupid like
on other dates before...
Maybe you'll offer me a nightcap of some kind...
Could you be so kind?
Could you?/


Or Maybe I should just say
goodnight?
Is that how you'd like to end
a perfect date?
Maybe I should just say goodnight...
Everything else could wait...
Maybe I should just say goodnight..
or is something missing tonight?/


The after hour spot we went to
was cool...
the drinks were cold and the band
was hot...
I snuck a little kiss from
you...
You didn't seem to
mind..
but that was as far as I got..

but
Maybe you'll let me walk you to your door...

You ask me inside for some coffee
and that's just fine...
But you know and I know that
I'll be spending more than just a little
bit of time....
We are kissing and making out
before the coffee is hot..
You invited me up for coffee
,but girl I think not..
I think not..





At the rate things are going...
It's a good bet
I'll be having Breakfast in the morning...
We'll be making love
until the break of dawn.....
Is this anyway for two people who barely
know each other to carry on?

That's just my imagination...
carrying me away for the moment...
as I walk you to your door..
Should I attempt to come inside??
Should I attempt to do more..??/


Or Maybe I should just say
goodnight?
Is that how you'd like to end
a perfect date?

Mr. Willie


The Doors of the Church are now open." said Pastor Struthers....Sepia nudged me and I woke up...I didn't want to admit that I was asleep..."Huh...I'm awake..what's goin on?" I said. Sepia smiled at me and then pinched me hard...

"Ow..what's up..what are you doin?" I said.

"At least you can pretend like you was listening to the sermon Kevin." she said.

I looked around...Cock Robbins was a few rows behind me with his wife, Vanessa. He too looked as if he had just been pinched awake too..I smiled to myself... Deacon Larry Weatherford was sitting in the row behind Pastor Struthers snoring...much to his wife, Victoria's consternation...
She was sitting with us..and she couldn't wake her husband.

Missing from Church this Sunday was Sean Jackson and his lady friend, Sheila...They had just got back from South Carolina. They had been on assignment covering a hot young trumpet player from Patterson, New Jersey named Reed Nelson. Also missing was my man, "88". When he wasn't playing the Piano at Josie's Bar...He played the Organ here at church...He and Mabel Jenkins must have decided to stay an extra day....Can't say that I blamed him.

The main person missing was head Deaconess,Ida Bell Jackson. In the entire time I had gone to this church..Ida Bell Jackson had never missed a Sunday... She was up in age and I surely hoped that she hadn't died. She lived alone. It was said that her husband, long dead..had left her with a sizable peice of change.

As Sepia and I were leaving church, Pastor John Struthers called me.

"Uh,er , Brother Kevin....could I have a minute of your time?" he said.

Sepia giggled- "He's probably gone get on you for falling asleep in the middle of his sermon" she laughed.

"Nah he aint...quiet about that." I said.


"Uh Brother Kevin...Have you seens Sistah Ida Bell Jackson this week? I noticed that she wasn't in chuuuch today." he said.


I was amazed at how Pastor Struthers knew every single woman in the church and knew when they weren't there. He made no mention about where "88" , the church Organist was or Sean Jackson....but he knew Sister Ida Bell was missing.

"No Pastor...I haven't seen her this week." I said.

"Between me and you..I think somethin fishy is going on and I need your help in gettin to the bottom of things." He said.

"You...You uh need my help Pastor?" I asked.

"Look....Everybody knows that she's sittin on some money and ever since her husband, Jack Daniels Jackson died...Every single man and widower in this chuuch been tryin to park they shoes under her bed....Ah been kinda lookin out for her....but I fear she has got in with someone that means her no good." He said.

"Like who? " I asked.

"Mr. Willie " He said.

"Mr. Willie?" I laughed...Mr. Willie was about 72 years old...a good eight years older than Sister Ida Bell...A Dapper old man who acted like he was 27.....but not what I would call dangerous.

"Kevin, she been takin up with him...but aint nobody heard from from her in days..She aint answered her phone, Her mail has been piling up at her house... and people been calling here at the church lookin for her..I'm serious..I got a bad feelin about this...really...I know that you looks into things..and I would really appreciate it if you did this favor for ole Rev.." he said.

I thought about it, then chuckled to myself and finnally said that I would.

I told Sepia about it and she laughed and laughed , as did I...but I agreed to look into it. Sepia wanted to get home and change her clothes...One of my pleasures on Sunday was helping her out of her clothes after we got home. She wasn't going. Sean was tired, probably cooling out with Sheila. I couldn't find Clerow...So it looked as if I would have to go solo on this one.


I drove by Miss Ida Bell's house.. The lights were off, there was a week's worth of mail piled up at her door...Utility bills, Magazines, Credit Card offers,Junk mail....The funny thing was...There was an envelope from the Social Security people , that had been opened and was lying there with the mail...Didn't have to mean anything ,but it made me think.

So I drove by Mr. Willie's house. I peered in the window and it appeared that the mystery was solved.. Ms. Ida Bell Jackson was sitting there at the table, along with another woman. They appeared to be just sitting there...but it didn't look like they were moving. Just sitting at the dining room table.

From the upstairs window...I heard the bed squeaking and a lot of hollering and moaning.....


"OHHHHHHHH...OHHHHHHHH MISTER WILLIE....put it on me daddy.....Ouuuuuuuu."

"Ohhhhhhhh....ohhhhhhhh come on now honey...now...now...now...now.give it to me..give it to meeeeee...ohhhhhhhhhhhh come on now...ummmmmmph"he groaned.

"Oh Mistah Willie....mmmmmmmph..ummmphhh...."

"Ah love it when ya call me Big Poppa...ouuuuuuu, weeeeee..."

"Ohhhhhhhhhhh big poppa....put it onnnn meeeeee..ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh." she screamed.

He couldn't be doing that much, I reasoned...or could he??? The man was 72 years old.


Mr. Willie????? A man his age... getting his swerve on??? Nah, it just couldn't be....All this and he had two women sitting downstairs in his living room???What Kind of Player was he?? He was putting all of us young guys to shame..

"Ohh mister Willie, lay that pipe...Lay it baby." came the female voice...

"Ohhhh...Ohhhh...here I come girl.....Here I come........"

"Don't stopppppppppppp....Mister Willieeeeeeeee...ouuuuuuuuuuu, oh myyyyyyy...."

I hated to stand outside his window and listen to him getting his thing on...but I couldn't believe what I had just heard. I peeped in his living room window and the two women were still just sitting there. Something about the way they were sitting there kind of bothered me.

They weren't saying a word..weren't moving...just sitting at the dining room table, while all that racket was going on upstairs.. No player I knew was THAT good. Three women in the house????, two sitting quietly as if waiting their turn, while you're upstairs with another woman...Not in this life.

Something was as wrong as rain about this picture. I just couldn't put my finger on it.

I didn't have to disturb him...But I at least wanted to talk to Ms. Ida Bell Jackson. So I rang the bell.

 Neither one of the ladies at the table moved. I rang the bell again. I know they heard the bell because I could hear it through the door..but neither one of them got up from the table. I was puzzled by that and the fact that they were there and all that racket was still going on upstairs..
The bed was still squeaking loudly and both he and whoever was in that bed with him was having a great time..yelling and moaning to the top of their lungs.

"Ohhhhhh, I'm cummming....ohhhhhhhh Mistah Willieeeee!!!!!"

Finnally,I heard the bed stop squeaking and heard both he and the woman cry out in ecstacy...

"Ohhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhh..OHHHHHHHHHHHH.. gurl I'm bout to explodddddeeeee!!!!!"

"Ohhh Mistah Willie....ohhhhhhhhhhhh mahhh gawdddd....ouuuuuuuuu lawwwwddd.."


"Gurrrrl, what did you do to me? That was worth more than ten dollars..I'm gon give ya twenty... Sweet georgia brown, that there was some good lovin...Whooooooo.."

"Mr. Willie, someone's at the door honey."

"The door? ,Oh who in the hell can that be? It's a Sunday afternoon...for cryin out loud.." came his voice.

It took forever, but he finnally came to the door in his boxers and a bathrobe.

"Huh..uh Hello.....Oh it's you Kevin...What do you want?" He asked..

The minute that door opened, the smell liked to knocked me out....

"I really came around here to check on Ms. Ida Bell Jackson..could you bring her to the door?" I asked.

"No, I can't...I believe she's busy." He said.

"Busy???, She's sitting right there....Sister Jackson ?? " I yelled...but she didn't move... The smell was killing me...

"Hey man, you need to open the window or somethin...How can you stand this?" I said.  There was no way he could ignore the smell.

"Look young fella...you got a pretty young wife..yall just been to church I reckon...Shouldn't you be home helpin her outta her clothes? I know I would if I was you....Sistah Jackson is fine...Now as I know you have heard..I'm busy myself.. now I've got to go....goodbye." he said.

I put my foot in the door and wouldn't let him close it and I forced my way in...I knew what that smell was.... I walked over to Mrs. Jackson and tapped her on the shoulder, Her lifeless body fell to the floor...So did the body of the other woman.

I turned and looked at Mr. Willie....

"You Freak!" I said.

II-




Lieutenant Sissy Van Buren put the cuffs on Mr. Willie and the coroner's office toted out the bodies of Mrs. Ida Bell Jackson and the other woman, Lula May Harkins. Both women had been poisoned and had signed their social security checks over to Mr. Willie. They had been missing for weeks.

The woman in the bedroom was a 34 year old Nurse and crack addict who Mr. Willie had paid twenty dollars to for her "services.."


"Shame Yall lockin up Mr. Willie...He was pretty good in bed for an old man..." she said as she left the house. The fact that two dead women were at the dining room table and the house smelled like hell...obviously meant nothing to her.


"Well Kevin...I guess I owe you one...once again...Who would have guessed that this seemingly sweet old man was a serial killer." said Sissy.


"Yeah,who would have guessed??...." I said as I watched the Police Cars drive away.

The next day, I stopped by the church to talk to Pastor Struthers....

"Kevin, I wanna thank you for gettin to the bottom of that...I knew Mr. Willie was bad news..Deac and I both was suspicious of him the minute he come smellin around Ida Bell. So sorry she's gone."he said.

"Yeah, but Mr. Willie is behind bars where he won't hurt anybody else." I said.

"Well thank you so much Kevin..." He said.

"Where are you on your way to Pastor?" I asked.....Then I saw her...the same woman who had been at Mr. Willie's house...The nurse...the crack addict....

 Uh this poor child has been traumatized, what with Mr. Willie and the two dead women right under her nose... I am going to give her some personal attention in my chambers...Thanks again for your help Kevin..." said Pastor Struthers as the young woman walked into his chambers and he closed the door softly and locked it...

I just laughed to myself and shook my head...I walked out of the church into the sunshine and headed on down the avenue towards the diner!


For SLC.

B-Flat's Blues..






I walked into an establishment called "Mabel's Soul Food Joint" with my good friend...Kerry "88"Moore, A keyboardist like myself...except that I play the Organ and sing....Me? My name is Bernard "B-Flat" Brown...
I'm from Philly, but I've been gone quite awhile....See..I've been in jail... Three years to be exact....Over in Spain...I was playin a gig and I got caught with some drugs on me...Not that I didn't get high mind you...But I'm certain I was set up...That these drugs was planted on me one night...I was soo drunk and high at the time that when the cops found me...I couldn't even defend myself...I spent three years in a Spanish Jail, before I was released and promptly deported back to my native United States of America...Philadelphia PA. thank you!

I don't care...I don't care if I never travel to Europe again!  My wife divorced me while I was in Europe...She divorced me before I got busted....I deserved it...I had been somewhat of an asshole...But I'm back now and what's more..I'm clean....I don't drink....and haven't had any kind of drug in three years...Sitting in a spanish jail can do that to you.

I'm playin gigs again...Trying to get a band together..

" "88" , I'm so sorry that I missed your wedding....I hear you married a gem" I said to my good friend.

"That's okay B-Flat...I know that you was kind of caught up." he said.

And then, one of the finest, sexiest women I ever saw in my life came out to greet us...I was all teeth upon seeing her... I looked at her hands and noticed a wedding band...Damn, she was taken!

"88 is this your wife?" I asked...

"Nooooo, this is my sister in law....Cora beth Hamilton...She's married to my friend, Clerow." he said.

''Lawd jesusss... Pleased to meet you." I said... She smiled and blushed a little bit...

The another fine , shapely woman came out and yet another one behind her , who was a bit younger appeared...

"That's my wife...Mabel...She owns this joint...Best cook in the whole damn state of Pennsylvania." said 88.

Mabel smiled and kissed "88"....

"Oh and this is my other sister-in law, Anita.." he said.

"Pleased to meet you....Your husband and I go wayyy back....Sorry I didn't make your weddin...I was over in Europe.." I said.

"Ohh that's okay...Glad you're home now." she added...

I whispered to "88"

"Mannn you hit the jackpot...Your wife is fine as hell and your sister in laws??? Whooooo, how do you keep it together, around all these fine women?" I said.

"It aint easy." he laughed... "Plus...there is another one that you haven't met." he added..

"Whattttt? She fine too?" I asked.

"Yes indeed..She's married to the deacon down at the church...." he said.

"Sheeeeeeeeeeet...I don't blame him....Deacon ,you and your friend took all of em off the market huh?" I said.

"The youngun is not married, but she been hooked up with this young lawyer for about two years now." he said.

"Ummmph, Ummmph, Ummph.....I don't blame not a one of you....Yo wife got an accent...They aint from here are they?" I asked.

"Nah, they from Louisiana." I said.

"I knew it...I knew it...You know what they say bout them damn Southern gals...Lawd today.." I said.

"Speakin of which....You seen your ex yet..I mean since you been back?" he asked.

"Nah...but I got to stop by Josies anyway and talk to Gus about a gig...She is still workin there aint she?" I asked.

"Oh yeah..Honey is still there." he said.




I had a fine meal with 88, his wife, Mabel, and his sister in laws, Anita and Corabeth....

"This here is some great food...You are a good cook." I said.

Mabel smiled -"Awww thank you." she said.

I paid my tab and then got up...

"Leaving so soon Mr. Brown?" said Mabel...

"Yeah...I got some business to take care of." I said and tipped my pork pie hat to 88 and his family.

II-




I stopped by Josies...and there was Gus...The Bartender and owner...He hadn't aged or changed at all in the four years since I'd seen him...When he saw me, he laughed...

"Oh My God...Look what the cat drug in?   I didn't expect to see you in here again B-Flat....Thought you was in Spain , speakin bad spanish to some big hairy guy named Lou." he laughed..

"Still the same ole Gus...You aint changed a bit..." I laughed..

Gus put a bottle of Wine on the counter and pulled up two glasses...He poured a glass for both of us...

"It's Christmas....My treat." he said.

I lifted a glass to him and drank up....

"So, I figure you here because you need a gig?" he said.

"Gus...you must read minds...That's exactly why I'm here.." I said.


"You're in luck....Reed Nelson, Bone Hampton and Downtown Rob Brown are all on the road...I was going to have a D.J. come in...but if you can rustle up some local musicians and put a band together...I can book you for this weekend and a few dates next week." he said.

"You payin scale?" I asked.

"I'll pay you a little extra if you draw a big enough crowd, how's that?" said Gus.

"That's great...I could use the bread.." I said.

Just then I heard a familiar voice--

"OH MY GOD!  Look what the cat drug in."



It was my ex-wife...Honey Brown....The barmaid here at Josies....

I smiled upon seeing her...She still looked good after all these years...

"Heyy darlin..What is this cat draggin me in business?  " I said ,laughing....

"Didn't expect to see you ever again." she said...

"Why? Wasn't no Spanish Jail gonna hold me, Wasn't no Spanish jail gone keep me from seein you." I said with a laugh...

Honey laughed...

"Oh my God...Here he go Gus, talkin that yang!...See why I would never date another musician?" she laughed.

"Or Marry one either,I guess." laughed Gus.

We all burst into raucous laughter....

"It's Christmas...Come on over here girl and let me look at you....Lawdddd today Honey, you stillll look good." I said.

She almost blushed , but she came over...I tried to pull her over to sit on my lap and she broke our embrace..

"Come on now...B-Flat...Let's not go there." she said, still smiling...

"I was your husband baby." I said.

"Was being the operative word here." she said.

"Aww come on Honey...Be nice...we aint seen each other in four years...and three of em, I was locked away in a Spanish jail.." I said.

"Who's fault was that?" she said.

"Okay..." I said and turned to Gus, ignoring her.....

She walked over, sat next to me and signaled to Gus to bring another glass...He did and the three of us killed that bottle and another bottle of wine....I bought a bottle of Champaigne off of him...It was 1:45 am...


"Closing time eh Gus?"I said.

"Yeah B.....You got someplace to stay?" he asked.

"Yeah...You know me and Ralph Scallion , the cook over at Dollar Bill's joint have always been cool...He's lettin me crash at his spot until I get settled...He's over at his lady's loft.." I said.

"You got wheels?" asked Gus.

"You know I keeps wheels...This is a rental out front...After I play a few gigs for you I'm gonna have a spot and a short." I said.

"You've really been gone a long time...Nobody says 'short' anymore !" laughed Honey Brown...

"Welllll uh why don't you visit me and uhhhhh hip me to the latest slang?" I said.

"Ha...In your dreams." she said.

I shruggged...

"Oh well...I had to try." I said.

"Yeah you did." she laughed.

"When you get settled financially, go talk to Chris Thompson and Chess..they  have some nice places that they rent out." said Gus...

"Thanks Gus...I saw Chris and Chess a few days ago...I'll be talkin to them some time during the week." I said.. Then I looked at Honey...

"Last chance Darlin...You stoppin by?" I said.

She smiled... "Uhhh,I don't think so.." she said.

"I'm stayin at Ralph Scallion's apartment if you change your mind." I said.

"I won't." she said. Gus just shook his head and laughed..

III-




Ralph Scallion had a nice apartment and a very nice building....He'd done well for himself cooking at Dollar Bill's joint...He could do even better if he opened his own joint like 88's wife, Mabel and her fine ass sisters.
I showered and threw on some Marvin Gaye on Ralph's I-pod and dimmed the lights....I popped open the champaigne and was about to kill the bottle when the doorbell rang...

Who knew I was even here?  Unless it was one of Ralph's lady friends...He kept a bevy of them and lord knows I could use a woman...It had been a long time...

I opened the door and to my surprise....It was my ex-wife...Honey Brown!!!!

"Whoa, isn't it past your bedtime?" I laughed.

"B-Flat...you gonna crack jokes or are you going to let me in?" she asked..

I let her in.



She was wearing a backless dress...I was impressed...With both the dress and her back...and smelling great.

"Lawdddd." I said, not concealing my utter delight with what I saw...

She didn't smile...

"You must be horny." I said.

"Still just as tactless and un-romantic as you ever were." she said.

"I'm just a realist...You acted all tough in front of Gus in the bar...and yet...Here you are." I smirked..

"Here I am..." she said...looking disgusted with herself...

I pulled her to me and unzippered her dress...She wiggled the rest of the way out of it...I unhooked her bra and she slipped out of her pantyhose...She slowly unzippered my trousers and looked at my raging erection and shook her head...

"My lord....you are still huge as ever....whoooooooeee." she said.

"Did you expect that I wouldn't be?" I asked...as I slipped out of my trousers and she helped me out of my shirt and undershirt...

"I knew you would be." she said...

"You certainly came with the right bait." I said, kissing her....She returned my kisses, with slow, sensual and yet wet kisses...

"Ouuuuuu, stop...stop talking...and just do me...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.." she moaned in between kisses..

''Aint you the damn romantic?" I said...




We kissed...slowly at first...As if we were trying to explore unknown territory, feel each other out....and gradually we began kissing passionately and pawing at each other furiously...I began kissing her from her navel up her stomach, between her breasts...the side of her neck, behind her ears...

"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu, oh my goddddddddddddd Bernarddddddddddddddddddddd...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I've missed you soooo muchhhhhhhhhhhhh,OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" she moaned..

"OHHHHHHH Honey...I've missed you toooooo...goood lawdddd, you feel good girlll,ummmmph." I moaned...

"Ohhhh B. Put it in me..please."she moaned...



There was a knocking on the wall-

"Heyyy quiet it downnnn, I'm tryin to sleep."

We both looked at each other and laughed....We continued kissing, licking, sucking and pawwing at each other in the living room...

"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"we moaned in unison!!

"Scallion...Don't you do anything else?  Huhhhh, knock it offff...Quiet the noise!" came the neighbor's voice.

We ignored it and headed for the bedroom, where we got in the bed and went to town...

That bed rocked from side to side...Those springs squeaked and that headboard slammed against the wall so hard ,I feared that either the bed was going to break down or we were going to knock a hole in the wall...


 "OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu, oh my goddddddddddddd Bernarddddddddddddddddddddd...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I've missed you soooo muchhhhhhhhhhhhh,OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"...she moaned...

"HEYYYY DAMMIT, STOP THE NOISE!!!!...WHAT ARE YOU DOIN IN THERE SCALLION??" came the neighbors voice as he pounded on the wall,.

He thought that Ralph had his lady or one of his chippies over....Good ole Ralph, still the dog I'd always known him to be.... Only this wasn't Ralph tonight ..this was me and my ex-wife, pretending we were still married!!!

We went on like this for at least another two hours before we both came furiously....

Honey was still shaking and trembling as I pulled out of her....She lie across the bed seemingly in deep thought!


"Ouuuu...I haven't come like that in ages.....Ouuuuuuuuu." she said...

Neither had I....I drifted off to sleep....This had been a good Christmas night and a good Christmas present.

IV-





I slept soundly, but I began to wake up, only to see Honey's naked body opening the shades and letting the sunshine in...damn she looked good!

''Hey baby" I smiled.

"Hey" she said....

''Want some breakfast?" I asked.

"Nothing's open...It's Christmas Day." she said.

''Well, I got some Eggs, some sausage and some bacon here...I could make us some breakfast." I said.

"That's nice...but I'm not stayin that long...I'm gonna take a shower and go home.." she said.

"Go Home?" I asked.

"Don't let last night go to your head B-Flat...That was just some Welcome Home-Merry Christmas booty that's all....It doesn't mean we gettin back together..but...it was....it was damn good..." she said.

"You mean you don't even want to think about that?" I asked.

"I'm surprised you do...You being a traveling musician and all." she said.

"Hey, Reed Nelson and "88" got married and I heard that Bone Hampton has been in a long term relationship..We aint all dogs." I said.

"And you aint none of them. Look, I was horny, you were horny and we both made each other feel good." she said.

"So last night was just about you huh?" I asked..

"I'm sure you enjoyed yourself too." she said.

"Well damn....I feel so...so used." I said.

Honey looked at me and laughed...a big wide belly laugh...

I got back under the covers...

"You'd better get going then...before somebody sees you and realizes you have the same thing on this morning you had on last night." I said.

She was quiet for a minute...then she headed into the shower and eventually got dressed...

"Bye B-Flat....Good luck in your endeavors." she said...I did not answer her or even acknowledge her...

She stood in the doorway like she expected me to say something, but I said nothing..Then I heard her gently close the door and walk down the hallway...

I listened and only went to the window when her car was pulling off....

Kisses and Kindles

"For me?" Minay said as I passed her her gift....

"Of course....I hope you like it." I said.

"If it's from you, of course I like it. Ralph.." she said.

"Well, don't you want to know what it is?" I asked.

"I'm not a baby...I can wait..."she said.

''Wait for what...it's midnight?...It's Christmas." I said.

''Okay Ralph..what is it...I'm still not going to open it until Christmas morning." she said.

"It's a Kindle...You been sayin you wanted one....so I got you one." I said.





Her eyes lit up...

"Ohhhhh thank you, thank you, thank you Ralph...." Minay said in between kisses...

"And now...how about my Christmas gift?" I said slyly....

"I got you something....It's in the box over there under the tree.." she said.

"I'm not talking about the gift under the tree..." I said and winked....

''Ohhhhhhhhhhhh...ahhhhhhhhhhhh...I know what you're talkin about." she said and smiled...





"MMmmmmm..that feels good " she moaned...

"Sooo do you baby." I moaned..

Within minutes , we were both naked, standing in the living room in the dark, kissing beneath the misteltoe..

"Won't someone see us, out here like this?" she asked...

"Only if they're a peeping tom." I said...

"Ohhhhhhh...."she said...

"Well Alright." I responded as we continued to kiss and lick and suck each other in our semi lit living room...


 Soon Minay is  on all fours with her hands gripping the sofa and me.. I am pushing from behind with  steady thrusts...deeper and deeper.  Oh it feels good... oh so good.  I  feel as though I'm being transported to another realm of being.


The pleasure from this encounter is driving me crazy.  I am panting, trying to slow my pace.  Trying to hold onto this majestic feeling.  I am so close to the edge of any sanity  The scream in my throat is building.  I can feel it racing up through my throat.  I can feel my heart racing faster faster faster.


She screams for  me to slam into her with everything I've got.  My back is arched, her butt is in the air and I am losing all sense of reason at this point...This was a night for making love...

We roll over very dangerously close to the Christmas tree...but luckily...I'm coming...coming like a faucet and soon she is too....

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......Ralphhhhhhhhhhh..." wailed Minay....

This was so cool...I loved being at Minay's place...No neighbor banging on the walls..and telling us to be quiet..We are free to let it all hang out..

We lie on the floor, naked and spent by the Christmas Tree...with it's beautiful lights...

'"Ralph.."she says...

''Yeah?" I answer..

"This floor is hard." she says...

"Yeah..I know...Let's get up and go in the bedroom..." I say..

She leans over and gives me a long slow kiss...

"Thank you for the Kindle, love." she says...

"You're Welcome....Merry Christmas baby." I say...

This Christmas


Detective Tyriq Pile was loading presents in the back of his car on this brisk December morning....Lt. Sissy Van Buren and I just happened to be walking down the street with two tumblers of hot steaming coffee when we saw him...

"Wow...Gettin ready for Christmas huh?" I said.

Detective Pile looked at me and smiled....

"Wow...and to think, you're an ADA...You coulda been a detective." he said...

Sissy cracked up laughing...





"Okay, Okay...enough...I was just making conversation." I laughed.

"Well ADA Wallace...The big box is for my wife and the other boxes are for my two little girls." he said managing a smile...

''How old are your little ones Tyriq?" asked Sissy.

"My twins are two and my new baby girl is just a few months...Carlotta is the twin's godmother...We want you to be the godmother of our new baby." he said.

''Awwww. I'm honored Tyriq!" said Sissy.

''What are you doing for the holiday Sissy?" I asked.

"Eddie and I are flying out to Las Vegas tonight." she said.

''WOW!  Don't you think this is a little soon Lieutenant? " I said in my big brotherly tone.


Sissy just smirked...

"I'm a big girl Keith.....It's not too soon if I don't think so...Hopefully the natives will behave myself themselves ,while I'm away...We'll be back on Wednesday." she said with a smile.  I was happy for her..She'd been alone for awhile now and I was glad to see her in a relationship and happy...

"Hey since you're askin...What did you buy for my chica?" asked Sissy.

''On that note...I'm outta here." laughed Detective Pile who closed his trunk and was headed for the door...
Sissy hugged him warmly...

"Thanks Tyriq for all of your great work....I hope you and your family have a great Christmas." she said.

"Thanks Lieutenant." he said... "Keith...you have a great holiday too." he said and we shook hands as he got in his car and pulled off.

"Detective Barlow should be coming with it soon....It's a Platinum bracelet that has her name engraved on it..
He's picking it up from Tiffany for me." I said proudly.


"Tiffany eh?  Wowwwww...What do they pay you ADA's anyway?" she laughed.



''Well Speak of the devil...There he is." said Sissy.

"Mann you won't believe this...I got mugged...they stole the bracelet and took my peice." he said with a straight face...

Sissy smiled...

I looked at him...

"Man you need to stop playin." I said..

He smiled broadly like a six year old boy and passed me the blue box...

"Relaxxxxx...I told ya I'd pick it up....They just couldn't believe how much of my tan I'd lost since you made the down payment." he said.




"You guys are crazy." laughed Sissy...

"Did you get the card?" I asked.

"The what?" he said.

"Come on...Stop playin." I said.

He passed me the card...He looked at Sissy and shrugged...

"Boyyy she sure has this guy whipped....I hate to see ya like this Keith, you're no fun anymore." he joked.

Sissy continued laughing....

"Well , I've done my good deed for today...I'm outteee." he said.

''What are you doing?" I asked.

''Tonight, me and some friends are going clubbing, tomorrow...I'm havin dinner with my folks.....Pray for me." he joked..

''We will...Merry Christmas Jimmy." said Sissy.

"You too Lieutenant." he said as he walked away...

I looked at Sissy....

"By the way, where is Carlotta? I haven't seen her." I said.

"Her Sister is in town....You know that her mother passed two years ago and her father went back to Puerto Rico..." said Sissy.

"Yes..She told me..." I said.

"She and her sister went shopping...Probably for your gift." she said.

"Wow...." I said.

"You can't believe it can you?" she said.

"No, I can't...I spent Christmas eve last year in Josies at a concert and then went home alone.."I said.

"Me too...I remember." she said.

"Things are looking up huh?" I said.



"Yes Keith." she said...She hugged me, long and hard....and said- ''Merry Christmas Keith"she said softly.

"Merry Christmas to you as well Sissy." I said and kissed her on the cheek...She hugged me again and kissed me on the cheek...




I waved as Sissy got in her car and pulled off...Then I headed home..

II-




I was stunned as I walked up to my condo....Carlotta was standing there with another equally stunning woman...I kept staring ,it had to be her sister!!!


''Wow Carlotta, you look beautiful." I said.  She smiled and gave me a wet kiss on the lips...

"Why thank you baby!Keith...This is my older sister, Carmen....Carm this is my boyfriend, Assistant District Attorney Keith Wallace." she said.. Her calling me her boyfriend made me feel very warm inside as well as powerfully horny!

"Ummmmmm Carlotta, he's cuteeee...Me likes." she smiled.

My God...Carlotta was drop dead gorgeous and her older sister was no slacker either, equally gorgeous...I just knew that their father kept a shotgun at the ready when they were growing up in North Philadelphia and Fishtown.

"Pleased to make your acquaintence....Let's not stand outside ladies..Come in, Come in." I said as we walked inside..



"Ouuu Little Sister, I like him already...He has excellent tastes...This is a nice place....No wonder I can never get you when I call your house." Carmen joked.

"You need to stop....you have my cell phone number." Carlotta joked... She did spend more time at my spot than I did hers I mused.

''What's in the box?"  asked Carmen impishly...

"It's a Christmas present for your sister." I said.

"Ouuuu and it's from Tiffany's.....I am impressed....He's definitely gonna get some tonight,ehhh?" she laughed.




I suddenly had an image of Carlotta and I doing just that...but I knew that Carlotta was embarrassed that her sister was stating the obvious! I just laughed to myself.


"Carmen!" said Carlotta.

"Oh stop being such a prude Carlotta....We are all adults..." she laughed...

"I see a lot of Victoria's Secret boxes..." I mused....

"You'll like them...I'm sure...but that's not your gift....She got you something nice."said Carmen.

"But we are not going to open our gifts until tomorrow morning.." said Carlotta.

"Oh girl, you are just like mama...Me and Daddy always opened our gifts early." laughed Carmen...

"How is Daddy?" asked Carlotta.

"He's well...He and his girlfriend are probably in San Juan at a club tonight." said Carmen.

"A Club??/Girlfriend???" said Carlotta...

"Long story...I'm going to be here until Wednesday...I'll give you the lowdown." she said.

"Well listen ladies...There's a big concert tonight at Mulberry Street...We can go hear some music and have some drinks and then I'll treat you both to some dinner...I know a nice place ." I said.

"Ohh Carlotta...You done good girl...you done good...You gotta keeper....I like Keith..." laughed Carmen.

Carlotta just beamed....I could tell that her big sister's approval was important to her...

"Carmen ,do you have somewhere to stay? You both are welcome to stay here...I have plenty of room." I said.

"Nooooo...Nooooo...I'm staying at a nice hotel downtown...I wouldn't dream of imposing....We go out tonight , Then we'll meet tomorrow morning for brunch in my suite, my treat, eh???" said Carmen...

"Sounds like a plan." I said.

"So Keith...You got anything to drink up in here?" she asked...

"I've got some Tequila." I said.

"Little Sis, you've trained him well." she joked....I already liked Carmen.

I pulled Carlotta towards me and walked her out on the terrace while Carmen helped herself to the Tequila.

"Thank you baby for making this a better Christmas than I've had in the past four years." I said.

"Awwww thank you for making mine meaningful too." she said.

We kissed..softly for a long while.....and then we gradually got into a powerful embrace and began kissing passionately....


We finally walked back into my living room...Carmen smiled....She took one of my arms and Carlotta took the other....

"Ladies? Shall we go?" I said.

"After you Keith" said Carlotta...

I felt like the luckiest man on Earth...I had not one, but two fine women on both arms...This Christmas would indeed be a Merry one!

Merry Christmas Everybody!
