Just Like The Huxtables

Early Morning....People in the Kensington section of Philadelphia were on their way to work...I was riding shotgun in a Black SUV....Lt. Sissy Van Buren was driving...I was too tired to drive...I had been up all night preparing briefs for an important case that I was about to try in a few days...My wife Carlotta had brought some work home too...She was in the other room finishing off some reports....We were both so tired that for once...We didn't make love..We kissed for a few minutes and then rolled over and went to sleep...

I must have slept very soundly because she didn't wake me up...When I awoke...she was gone..but she had left her usual sweet handwritten message for me with her lipstick imprint by the side of the bed...
I'm the hard working Assistant District Attorney, Keith Porterhouse Wallace...I prosecute Homicides....Major Crimes and Special Victims offenses...

"Tired counselor? Rough night last night?" said Sissy with a smile....

''Sis, you don't even know...I was preparing for trial a few days from now...And Carlotta was finishing up a few files of her own." I said, still yawning...

Detective Edwin "Duke" Baylor , who was riding with us just smiled...

"One of those non-fun work nights eh Keith?" he laughed...

"Yeah man...Have to pull one of those every now and then...It was like being in college and having to cram for a test." I said.

"Chica wouldn't have called us unless this looked like a bad one...She never calls when it's just a routine homicide." said Sissy.

II-
We stopped the car at the corner near the Margaret & Orthodox El Station... There was already several people standing around... Three Police cars...Several uniformed policemen were cordoning off the area..

A car sat on a side street....Detectives Carlotta Rodriguez-Wallace, My wife and Detective Tyriq Pile had on latex gloves and were looking at the bodies of a young African American Man and woman in the front seat... Detective James "Jimmy" Barlow  was busy talking to bystanders and taking down information...
Dr. Hazel Hunter was also observing the bodies...Crime Scene photographers were snapping photos, while a dozen uniformed officers were collecting shells...



"What do you have here Chica?" said Sissy as we got out of the SUV...



"It's a double Boss Lady....Young couple...He's a doctor at nearby Frankford Hospital...He delivers babies..
,She's a lawyer...They just recently got married about two months ago.." said Carlotta , who walked over to me and planted a wet sloppy kiss on my lips....




"I see you woke sleepy head up." she said smiling...

Sissy and Duke laughed...

Inside the car, The man's trousers were unzippered, his penis was out and his wife's hand was still holding it..
Both had nice neat holes in their heads....and blood was running down the front seat on both sides...Not a pretty picture at all...And not a way I'd like to be caught in death!

"I was just down at the hospital....Where this guy works...His name is Cliff Johnson and that's his wife ,Valerie Johnson...They said that sometimes She would pick him up after he worked a late shift...They left the hospital at 1:25 am and that was the last time anyone saw them." said Jimmy.

"The uniforms talked to two people who were on the street..They said that the car pulled around here to this side street...and a little after two thirty...A man in a hood ran up to the car...They heard four pops and then the guy ran off into the night..." said Tyriq...

"Nice couple...A Doctor and a Lawyer...Just like the Huxtables." said Jimmy.


"You watched the Cosby show?" I asked smiling.




''Yeah..who didn't?" he said.

Carlotta and Duke followed the path they said the intruder ran.....





"Look Duke...muddy footprints...that stop right here." she said.

"Have the CSI guys make a plaster cast." said Duke.

"I already requested that." said my wife...

Duke smiled and hugged Carlotta...

"I taught you well...You always was sharp girl." he said...She smiled.

"Notice how the footprints stop right here...either he took his shoes off..." said Carlotta..

''Or he got into a car...Which means somebody might have driven him here..."said Duke.

"Wonder who would want to kill these two?...They look like normal people...They don't look like playas."said Tyriq...

"Hmmmm, this looks funny, but why would they pull up here on this side street and stop?" asked Sissy...

I smiled..

"They had been apart all day...they hadn't seen each other...They just wanted some alone time..." I said.



Tyriq and Duke smiled...Hazel looked at me sheepishly.....Sissy smiled...

"You sound like you speak from authority counselor..." she said...

Carlotta smiled...

"It is a good theory...It's one that I'll sign off on...They drove around here for privacy...and someone ran up and shot them both." she said.

Tyriq,Duke,Hazel and Sissy now gave Carlotta the serious side eye and smiled..

"Not that I would know personally about this...I'm just saying." said Carlotta blushing..

"But who knew they were going to even be here? Unless this was something they did every night...?" asked Jimmy..


Sissy smiled, shaking her head and smiling ,while looking at both Carlotta and I. The truth was..Of all the places we had made love...Outside in a car was not one of them...I had tried once, but both of us got cold feet and didn't do it. No..this was not something we did...I know that nobody at the scene believed that though...

"Who's the primary?" asked Sissy.

''Top"said Tyriq..

''What did you guys do, draw straws?" she asked smiling sheepishly..

"It was her turn...Jimmy had one a few weeks ago...I had the last one...she's up." said Tyriq.

"Well whatever works for you...Duke will give you whatever additional help you need." said Sissy....Both Tyriq  and Jimmy were sharing Carlotta as a partner...Kind of unorthodox...but it was working...They were clearing cases fast.

Carlotta walked over to me and whispered in my ear...

"Will you be busy at lunchtime?" she asked.

''Not for you." I said.

She Smiled...

"I'll stop by."she said and kissed me on the cheek...

III-


Carlotta was as good as her word...She stopped by my office at lunch time...I was happy to see her...we stood in my doorway and kissed passionately for a long while before she came inside and closed the door..
She sat on my lap and layed her head on my shoulders...

''What's going on babes? With your case?" I asked her..

"Jimmy and I are going to interview the entire hospital staff and watch video to see if we can get a handle on who this couple was... Duke and Tyriq are going to interview the family and friends of both...and the four of us are going to look at bank records, credit and what have you and see if they were in debt o anybody, if anybody was cheating, what have you...I may even interview a few ex-lovers of both...The whole works..."she said.


"Well you guys look like you got it covered...I'm sure Hazel will be able to tell you what kind of gun it was and what have you." I said.

I unzippered her dress...

''Oh wow...a black lace  bra.."I said.

"I know you like that." she said...

"I dooo.." I said..

I dimmed the lights...the shades were already pulled...I pulled Carlotta towards me and began deep throat kissing her.....I ran my hands up her dress and began rubbing her legs....She moaned and cooed softly...

I  eased her matching black lace panties down and helped her out of her dress...She hastily unzipped my trousers and allowed them to drop down around my ankles and I cleared my desk off and laid her on it ever so softly and slowly gently entered her..


''Ouuuu ayee mios dios...ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu"she moaned softly....She was so warm, so moist....


I thrusted into her ,first slowly, then faster and harder....

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.." she moaned as my desk rocked from side to side...

"You do have the good good." I moaned as we began making sweet love...

"You always say that.." she cooed...

 We continued to kiss deeply,passionately as I rubbed those breasts of hers and continued to thrust mightily..

We made love in my office for at least an hour..both of us climaxing mightily....

As Carlotta and I dressed...I put my arms around her and kissed her neck...

"That couple..They're just like us...They just got married a few months ago...both working highly stressful at times jobs..and just wanted to have a little privacy and make a little quick love." I said.

"Yeah and now they're both dead...Whatever they were into, somehow this just isn't right.." said Carlotta.

"That could of been you and I." I said.

"But it wasn't honey bunny." she said.

I held my pretty little wife in my arms...

"No, it wasn't...Not today." I said.

The Thing About Killing


Philadelphia at sunrise....I love it!  Especially from the rooftop of the C.I.D. Building....It was cool out...I was drinking a tumbler of hot coffee...So was Lt. Sissy Van Buren of Homicide....

"You haven't been to see me in awhile Kevin." she said with a smile as I passed her a tumbler of coffee.

"I've been busy Sissy....but I'm never going to be that busy that I don't come to check up on my favorite Lieutenant of Homicide." I said with a smile...

"Awwwww." she said with a smile...

"The reason I'm here is I've got a closed murder case to drop in your lap." I said.

"A closed case? Which one?" she asked.

"Tyriq's case...The Vincent Delack murder." I said.

"He's been working that one hard...but he's run into a dead end.." she said.

"I have a client ...a client who was there, who witnessed the murder!!" I said.

"You do? Tyriq interviewed several people." she said.

"I know...He and I were criss crossing each other....Talking to the same folks...But my client was uh kind of with Vincent when he bought it if you get my drift?" I said.

"With him as in sexually?" asked Sissy, a wry smile on her face...

"Yes....I believe you recovered a pair of her undergarments at the scene..." I laughed.

Now it was Sissy's turn to laugh.....

''Why am I not surprised that the owner of those panties is your client?" she said ,still laughing.

"Problem is...She wears glasses that are coke bottle thick Sissy...Her glasses were off , amongst other things and she didn't get a good look at the killer...All she saw was a blur and it was dark and she hid and then high tailed it out of there." I said.

"So...how can she help us?" asked Sissy.


"The killer doesn't know that she really didn't see him....But since I now know who the killer is...I'm going to uh let's say...Give my client to him, wired of course and force a confession." I said.

"You're 100 percent sure you know who the killer is?" asked Sissy...

"I never was more sure about anything in my life..." I said.

"Okay Kevin...You've never steered us wrong before..." she said.

"I'm going to get everything set up...Tell Tyriq to hang tight...I'll be in touch soon." I said as I got ready to leave...

Sissy hugged me for a good long time....her body was so soft and warm and inviting...The kind that you never want to let go of...I personally didn't know how her boyfriend, Eddie C. could stand it!

"I missed you friend...Haven't had any visitors..." she said.

"Oh no? Lt. Cantrell hasn't been by?" I asked.

"Nooo, surprisingly he hasn't....I must be losing my appeal." she joked...

I smiled and looked Sissy up and down...

"No..You haven't lost a damn thing girl." I said.

"Oh hush up smarty and stop looking at me like that." she said blushing...

I laughed too and headed out!

II-
"You sure this will be safe ?" said Attorney ,Olivia Bennett...

"I'll be right there with her...My friend Peeping Tom is the best in the business....He used to be in the CIA...He'll wire her up real good...All she has to do is call our pigeon and make a deal...offer to meet him in your old office...The semi -empty one...Not only will I be there hiding...but the police won't be far behind...She'll be perfectly safe, I promise you." I said.

"Okay..I'll get in contact with her..She'll be relieved to finally be safe from a possible killer who thinks she's an eye-witness and or a possible murder charge." she said.

"Oh and Olivia...If I may ask...What is she to you? How is she paying for this?" I asked.

"She's the daughter of one of the lawyers who works with me in my soon to be former firm..He is not with the mother...Hasn't been for awhile...She went to him first and he called me...I'm somewhat of a fixer...You might say.." she said.

"Like that woman on that Television show." I said smiling...

"Better." she said.

"I hear that." I laughed.

"Sit tight baby...The fun is about to start." I said.

"I hear you're quite the roller coaster ride." she said laughing.

III-

As usual ,it was dark....Julie Hunt walked in the office and stood at the doorway...A shadowy figure stood in the aisle..From where I was hidden, I could smell the odor of scotch and human sweat....

"So..." came the gruff male voice..."I'm here...what did you want?" he said.


"I was in Vinnie Delack's apartment the night you shot him...I saw you.." she said.

''Oh Really? You saw me..??" he said.

"Vinnie and I were uh about to get kind of intimate and speaking of intimate...I was so scared ,I left and left an article of clothing behind...I believe they were blue with white lace.." she said.

"Yesssss....I suppose you were there." he said.

"The cops think I killed him.....But I didn't.. I was there...but you killed him." she said.

"Yes I did....so what of it." he said.

"You may have to pay for my silence." she said.


"Pay? Hahahahaha...This is not your day baby....I don't have any money." he laughed...

"Then you have a problem....because I'm not going to take a fall for you...and while the cops don't really have enough to make a case stick against me...Think of how much they'll have if I give them you?" she said...

"Now you see...There is where you have a problem...Since It's obvious you saw me and the cops don't have a clue I was involved...It would stand to reason that you have to go." he said.

"Huh?" she said.

I heard the click of a gun...

"See baby girl...That's the thing about killin...Once you get up the nerve to kill somebody...and you go through with it...Killin somebody else is not that much of a problem." he said...

"Is that how you see it Harry?" I said, pulling Julie out of harm's way...

Harry Jordan smiled and shook his head....

"Is that you Kevin?  I should have known...." he said.

"You just confessed to murder Harry....She's wearing a wire...We got you on tape...It's all over." I said.

"See, That's the thing about killin...Each additional body is of no consequence...You know I'm not going to let either of you out of here." he said and fired in our direction...

He had a big gun and it made a loud noise!  Julie grabbed my arm...

"Oh My God...He's got a gun...He's going to kill us Mr. Kevin..." she said.

"No He's Not...Stay down " I said... I pulled out my .38 smokeless and returned fire in the direction of his smell.. Julie and I crawled on the floor and moved behind some desks..

He fired again, hitting a water cooler...It exploded and glass and water went flying and splashing...

I returned fire...

"Give it up Harry...It's all over.." I said..

"Keep talkin...You're just leading me to you." he said.

All of a sudden , the lights switched on....

He winced...So Did Julie and I...

Standing behind us..Was Lt. Sissy Van Buren, Detective Tyriq Pile and Detective Carlotta Rodriguez-Wallace and five uniformed Philadelphia Policemen, with glocks aimed his way...








"Freeze Harry...It's all over...You're under arrest for First degree murder..." said Sissy..

Harry dropped his gun and put his hands up...

Tyriq handcuffed him and Carlotta read him his rights...

I walked over to him...

"Why did you do it Harry?" I asked.

"Same reason your girl over there was going to do it..Vinnie used my wife like a playtoy and then just discarded her...It was bad enough that he was screwing my wife , but he messed her up so bad that she was no good...irreparable...She was my life, my reason for living....He took that from me...I was never the same man after she killed herself...He robbed me of everything Kevin and for no reason...I did the world a favor...I don't feel no guilt at all....I never will." he said...

Tyriq looked at me...

"That enough for you Kev?" he asked..



"Yeah...That's enough for me....I almost hate that he's the one going to jail...I kinda feel for the guy..." I said.


Carlotta put her arms around me and hugged me...

"Kevin, I know just how you feel...I had a case just like this awhile ago...where the victim was so foul...I hated arresting the perp.." she said.

Tyriq laughed...

"You and Top...You two have great hearts...You're both good people...Oh and by the way...Thanks Kev...You gave me a perfect clearence rate for the week."he said.

"Hey ,I helped you." pouted Carlotta jokingly...

"You're my partner...Of course you did." laughed Tyriq hugging Carlotta..

"Thanks again Kevin." she said as She ,Tyriq and the officers took Harry Jordan out in handcuffs...


Sissy stood there just looking at me...

"You've done it again Kevin...You're a miracle worker." she said as she followed her detectives and officers out into the street..

"That's what they tell me." I laughed...Sissy looked back at me and winked...

I looked at Julie..

She smiled...

"Thank you Mr. Kevin...I'm so glad it's over."

"Me too...You hungry?" I asked.

''As a matter of fact I am." she said.

"I know a place..Jakes.." I said.

"They make the best Hot Dogs in the City." she said.

"That they do...Is it a date?" I said.

"It's a date!" she said smiling...

We smiled and walked arm and arm out of the office building into the Philadelphia Night.


EPILOUGE:

Harry Jordan was convicted of 2nd Degree Murder and sentenced to 15-25 years....Julie Hunt went back to modeling...

I met with Attorney Olivia Bennett in her office...She handed me another envelope with three thousand dollars in it...

"You are indeed a miracle worker...We didn't even have to go to court..." she said.

"I'm sure your lawyer friend was happy." I said.

"Oh he was...he was..He compensated me quite well..." she said.

"Guilt money?" I said.

"Of course...That's the best kind." she said... We both laughed...

"Kevin...Can I call on you again?  I'd like to keep you on retainer..." she said.

"Sure...I do investigative work for Robert Foxworth and his associates...I don't mind working for you too." I said and passed her a card.

"Thank you...You also help my old friend, ADA Keith Wallace too don't you? " she laughed...

"Yes..I'm pretty tight with him and his detectives at C.I.D." I said.

"He told me you really know your stuff...That's good to know." she said.

"When I'm not doing that I'm publishing magazines and newspapers and running a radio station..When you get your office set up..Maybe I can interest you in running a feed into your office,that is assuming you like classic R&;B, Smooth Jazz,Funk and Neo Soul music."I said.

"I love it...all of that...You really are a good friend to have." she said.

"That's what I'm told." I said.

She shook my hand...

"Friends?" she said.

"Friends" I said.

"Be Easy Kev." she said and winked.

I smiled and left her office and walked out into the Philadelphia day...

Shots In The Dark

I sat in Attorney Olivia Bennett's office a few days later...I brought her a tumbler of coffee....I had had this ritual with Lt. Sissy Van Buren in her office and on the rooftop of the CID building many times..and now I was having it with my new friend..

She was surprised when I called her and asked her what type of coffee she wanted...

"You are soo considerate...I've never had anybody buy me coffee before.." she said smiling...

"Well now you do...This is an endorsement for future work." I said smiling...

"So what's up?" she said.

"In the past few days...I've talked to 25 women who knew and had relations with Vinnie Delack...and I have to say that not one of them had anything nice to say about him....except that he was great in bed and uh well proportioned." I said.

She spit her coffee out laughing...I could tell already that I liked her and would like working with her in the future...

"Yes...my little client has told me as much." she said.

"I talked to about 15 or 16 men...some of them the heartbroken boyfriends or significant others of Mr. Delack's lady friends...and it was the same thing...Nothing good to say and every reason to kill him...Only thing...None of them did!! I checked everybody's alibi...and they all checked out...Are you familliar with Detective Tyriq Pile?" I asked.

"Yes..I am...He works with ADA Keith Wallace..A very thorough investigator..." she said.

"Yes...He's a good friend of mine too...He's working this murder investigation....He beat me to practically all of those people....He's good...I went to talk to him also... They found two of Vincent Delack's smartphones, which was where they got the list of girls from." I said.

"Is that where you got your list?" she asked.

"No...I had to do it the hard way...Ask around on the street...Anyway...a guy told me that there was a third phone...a phone the police didn't find...I held that information back from Tyriq...This guy told me where I might find that phone....That phone has some other numbers in it!" I said.

"Oh? Who is this guy?" she asked.

''A reporter....the guy you told me about.." I said.

"Harry Jordan?" she said.

"Yeah." I said.

"What about the panties?" she asked.

"They examined them for DNA....but it didn't turn up anything...Our girl has no record, so her DNA isn't in any data bank...She's home free...and I didn't tell them about her....I'm going home...Get some rest, then I'm going to look for that other phone.." I said.

"Sad thing about Jordan" she said.

"Oh yeah, his wife left him." I said.

"She left him for Delack...Who he was writing about....Then after Delack had had his fill of her and discarded her, she hung herself.." she said.

"What?  His wife and Delack??  He didn't mention that.." I said.

"Oh yeah....Two years ago...Poor guy hasn't been the same since...Now he's just a shell of a man,drinking and playing cards..." she said.

Hmmmmm I thought!!!!....

"Well...I'm going to look up that other lead...that other phone...I'll be in touch." I said.

"Okay...Thanks Kevin." she said.

II-


I went home...I had only seen my wife briefly in the two days I had been either at work or tracking down leads in this case...She and Bonita had been busy showing homes to my friends, Duke Baylor and Hazel Hunter who were getting married soon and Sharon Ferrell and Young Detective Tony Hopkins who were also getting married soon...We had been passing each other a lot....








We had mutually agreed to take this afternoon off for ourselves...

''Ouuuuuu, ohhhh baby, you feel sooooooooooooooooooo good. Slow downn, slow down...mama isn't going anywhere.....ohhhhhhhhhhhhh goddddddd!" moaned Sepia as we made sweet love in our bedroom....




Both of our phones were on vibrate...We didn't want any interruption...

She wrapped her big shapely legs around me and allowed me to seemingly enter her even easier...She was good and wet and soft as ever.....

''Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I love you sooooooooooooo muchhhhhhhhhhh!" she screamed as I plunged into her wet,warm and soft spot....

The bed rocked back and forth and slammed against the wall as we went at each other furiously....

I had dreamed of making love to Sepia for about two years before I actually met her...She was just photos on a blog I used to read and comment on...I never imagined that one day I'd actually meet her, marry her and be able to make love to her every day...How blessed was I?

She climaxed powerfully.... It took me awhile to climax, but when I did, it was equally powerful...

"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" I yelled...

"Ohhh myyyyyyyyyyyy." said Sepia just barely catching her breath..

We both lie across the bed looking at each other and smiling faintly....



"WOW!...It gets better every time." laughed Sepia...

"It does...I can't believe it myself.." I laughed...

"I'm glad you're still interested...All the pretty women you're in contact with now of days." she said.

"They can't do for me what you do babes...believe that!" I said trying to catch my breath..."I'm hooked on this" I said squeezing her butt.

"Awwwwwww , you make me feel so secure." she said.

I held her in my arms...

"You don't ever need to feel insecure about me babes...Yeah I deal with some attractive women...but most of all, they are decent women...They know I'm married and they have never crossed that line with me...and I have never crossed that line with them.."I said.

She cuddled up under my arms...

"Feel better?" I asked.

"Yeah" she said and gave me a wet,sloppy kiss....

III-





Hours Later I was at Vincent Delack's studio....It was a storefront just a few blocks from one of Big Chicken's strip joints...Why was I not surprised?... I had learned a few tricks from Lockpick Johnson...This was a pretty simple set up, so I didn't need his special expertise...I disabled the alarm and gained entrance myself...I had a flashlight...
I rooted around in the dark looking for that third phone...

The place was huge..and dark...I should have brought Kool Kat or Clerow or someone with me...but once again..I hadn't...I kept feeling as though I wasn't alone...Turns out,I wasn't..

I went through the one desk drawer there....No phone!!! I heard footsteps and heavy breathing...Whoever it was had been drinking...even from a distance ,I could smell Scotch on their breath....I also heard the familliar click of a gun...a BIG GUN!!..

I ducked as a shot rang out....

There wasn't much room for cover...So I ran...Three more shots rang out...I ducked down..pulled my .38 smokeless out and returned fire.. I fired three shots towards the
sounds of footsteps...

There was a backdoor..I tried it...It opened ,but a second alarm came on!!!...I ran one way..and whoever shot at me ran in the opposite direction!!!

Another narrow escape.

IV-



So once again I was taking coffee to Attorney Olivia Bennett's office...

"No luck in finding that third phone eh?" she asked.

"No...but I think I know who really killed Vincent Delack." I said.

Her beautiful, soulful eyes widened...

"You do?" she said.

"Yes...And I'm going to need your client to help me trap him..."I said.

"This sounds risky..." she said.

"Come on counselor...No Risk ,No Reward..."I said.

She smiled at me devilishly and said-

"And certainly no fun."

I laughed...

"Yes...I liked Attorney Olivia Bennett...I had the same feeling about her I had a few years ago when I met a certain Lieutenant of Homicide named Sissy Van Buren.

(CONCLUSION NEXT)
