Dream Come True

Olivia was right...Beverly was very good at reading people and picking good jurors...She found 7 first time jurors..Young people like herself who were thrilled to death to be on a jury and who were interested in the entire judicial process....She found 5 older ,but not jaded jurors to fill out the list....

It was amazing how she,her aunt Olivia and the prosecutor ,who was a female were able to talk and agree on jurors..

The Prosecutor, a young woman who was about Olivia and I's age...maybe a year or two younger was clearly star struck....She had the case of her lifetime...Her career at the time...Richard Graves, the  eccentric Philadelphia millionaire, suspected of killing his wife, who vanished without a trace about ten years ago...acquitted of killing a woman in California and jumping bail in Pennsylvania....Now he was captured here in her small town, disguised as a woman and accused of a gruesome dis memberment homicide...

The National News media was focused on little Bar Harbor,Maine....Plus the Attorneys who defended him, Olivia Bennett-Alexander and her niece,Beverly West were here in her courtroom, facing off against her...To her,this was a dream come true!

My brother in law, Jimmy West Jr. and his associate were of course getting the scoop on the rest of the media because of his relationship to the lead defense attorneys...He was getting the story of the year...He had in fact become a story of his own....His sister and his daughter were the lead defense attorneys....It was a career making story...He was finally out of the shadows of his actress wife...People were actually interviewing him... He was loving every minute of the media circus surrounding this trial...For Jimmy, this was a dream come true..

I stood in the back of the courtroom and took it all in....

II-
Opening arguments in the trial began....The judge...Also, surprisingly a younger man who couldn't have been much older than Olivia and I had a wandering eye....He certainly kept his eyes on the young female prosecutor ,who was shapely and attractive herself...And he veered from Olivia and Beverly  and back again...

When Jimmy's wife, The actress, Malinda West came to the trial to visit one day..He nearly lost his mind...For him, having all these fine women in his court was a dream come true...

Olivia's argument was that there was a rush to judgement....Her client, she argued had been charged simply because he was a wanted fugitive..

Of course the Prosecutor brought that up and the fact that he was disguised as a woman the entire time he was here , That his entire existence was a lie...she hammered that into the jury's mind..She may have been star struck..but she was no slouch..She was a very capable and prepared attorney...

Olivia countered with the fact that ,because he was hiding it was necessary for him to do so...live a lie..It was an absurd argument...but one she made believable...She brought up the fact that he had no motive to kill Mr. Graber...That he had 800 large on him in cash at the time he was captured...A lot more than the paltry 75K that Mr. Graber had won from the lottery...and that her client had advised Mr. Graber to put his money in the bank and to stop flashing it.

Beverly called several people to the stand...People Nelson,Detective McDonald and I had interviewed who said they knew the two...

All of them said they thought Richard was a woman....And they thought that Morris Graber was sweet on him/her...

This brought laughs from the jurors and the audience...

She then got them to tell of numerous times Elvira Gentry aka Richard Graves had advised him to stop flashing his cash and to put the money in the bank.....and how he had refused...None of them believed ,according to their testimony that Elvira Gentry had any designs on Graber or his money.

The Prosecutor blistered all of them on cross..but none of them budged...Olivia and Bev had coached them well...

None of this cleared Richie..but it did begin to plant doubt in everyone's minds....About motive and about other people...

Next....Olivia showed them what physical evidence we had of the murder due to a luminol test...That showed the murder occurred in the rooming house and in the bathtub...

She asked the Deputy who actually made the arrest,Deputy Jim Skylan, why he didn't order a luminol test immediately and why there was no search for the money...He couldn't answer...He said that he hadn't known about the money.

The Prosecutor tried to lead him out of the quagmire he was now in...but Deputy Skyler already looked unprofessional....His testimony was that of a novice, who overlooked details...His lack of attention to detail and rush to arrest a wanted fugitive was beginning to make him look to this jury like he was trying too hard and overlooking things which is what Olivia and Beverly wanted them to think.

She stopped short of calling the lead Detective, Clint McDonald to the stand....She realized he was helping us and she didn't want to alieanate him...
The Prosecutor did call him and he gave a pretty factual testimony of the day to day of the case and how they identified Elvira Gentry's prints and discovered that she really was Fugitive Richie Graves and that was how they led to him being arrested..

Beverly did not cross examine him at all, which he would tell me later was a big surprise...He expected to get blistered...
While I was watching the trial, my smartphone vibrated....It was Nelson..

''Hey Nelson...what's up?" I asked.

"I'm at the County Medical Examiner's office...Grab Detective McDonald and get over here...The autopsy results are in."he said..

"He just finished testifying...I'll  grab him.."I said.

III-

 Detective McDonald and I got to the county Medical Examiner's Office as quickly as possible..The M.E., an older gentleman who looked a lot like Marcus Welby M.D. said to us...

"As you know the body was hacked to pieces...I suspect..Whoever did this is a butcher...I mean a real butcher...who cuts meats...the cuts were very efficient....but the cuts were post mortem....The skull was a mess..but the cause of death was blunt force trauma...This guy was whacked on the head and killed...The killer or killers then cut him up and disposed of him in the bay...They didn't do a good job because as you know the body parts came floating back up..."he said.

"You're saying this was the work of two people Doc?" asked Detective McDonald..

"Didn't have to be, but that's a strong possibility...Your killer is right handed....I know that much and judging by the blows ,considerably shorter......But because Mr. Graber was a pretty big man...six foot three, 247 pounds..It would have taken a man..a rather big man to drag him to that bath tub and cut him up...." said the M.E.

"Richard Graves is left handed." I said..

"You got anything from those Traffic and ATM cams yet?" I asked..

"They are still working on it..."said Detective McDonald...

''I got something...I checked Helen Graber's financials..Two days after her husband vanished...She deposited 32K into her bank account...and ordered a new ATM card....and her boyfriend Basil Jackson...He deposited 32K in cash from his account and ordered a new ATM card too...."said Nelson..

"That's 65K....probably all that was left of Graber's lottery winnings...unless they pocketed the rest for spending change...They split the money."I said.

"Why didn't they high tail it out of here?" asked Detective McDonald...

"That would look too obvious...They wanted to wait until the heat and suspicion was off of them..."said Nelson...

"I interviewed her twice...Nobody interviewed Basil..Nobody knew about his involvement with Mrs. Graber until just this week..."said McDonald...

"He got a record?" I asked..

"I don't know...We are running that unidentified print right now..."said Detective McDonald...

"Well there is nothing else we can do here.."I said...

Detective McDonald got on his phone...

''Chuck,put out an APB for Basil Jackson and Helen Graber..Bring em both in for questioning.."he said.

"I'm on it.."he said.

'Well Detective...I'll see you tomorrow I suppose."I said.

"You wouldn't happen to have another bottle of the Jameson's would ya? I polished the last of it off last night."he said.

"I'll see what I can do."I said smiling...."Come on Nelson."I said..

"The girls just might have a chance of springing this guy again...I just hope he doesn't get in any more trouble."said Nelson...

''He's in trouble already...He's still facing trial in Philly."I said.

"On what evidence? I mean I think he did it...but Nina Rios has no evidence what so ever..No physical evidence, no nothing...Her whole case is basically hear say...Livy and Bev could destroy her in the pre lims..She's got to know that."said Nelson...

I smiled...My respect for this young man was just growing by leaps and bounds...He was smart,tenacious and a good Attorney in his own right...For my money...Beverly was lucky to have him as a boyfriend! I was glad he had come along with us.

IV-
Malinda West sat on the bed in her hotel room...She was watching her husband observe his proofs and read his press.....

"This worked out really good for you huh?" she said.


"Yeah....I got offers coming in ,wanting me to do photo spreads for other sensational cases as well as my usual shoots...This is a lot of work."said Jimmy...

"You're almost as big a celebrity as your sister and your daughter...."said Malinda..



"Yup!" said Jimmy...

"Your dream come true huh?" she said...

Jimmy turned to his wife...but he was thinking about his sister Olivia and what she had taught him...Funny...He remember when he was teaching her things ,like how to tie her shoes..when she was a little girl...Now she was a grown woman and teaching him about things...He smiled at the irony..
 "Nah...At first I thought all of this was my big break...my chance to shine you know...but my sister made me understand something...This stuff comes and goes...You know what my dream come true was?"he said.

"No what?" she asked..


"You! You were my dream come true...Getting you..Someone so clearly out of my league to marry me..That was my dream come true."he said.

"Out of your league? Jimmy,I'm twelve years younger than you...I'm your little sister's best friend...You knew me when I was a skinny little girl with a flat chest and birth control glasses."she laughed...



''Well by the time you were 16, your breasts had more than developed and the glasses were gone and that body was like whoa." said Jimmy..

"You were looking at me back then Jimmy? You were what? 28, 29?" she asked...

"Yeah,so what? I'm a man...I'm straight...."he laughed..

''Dirty Old man."she laughed..

"I waited...Am I still a dirty old man?" he asked..

"You are......I can't believe I let you take me out...I mean ,you were like family...My best friend's older brother...I couldn't believe you were actually coming on to me and the next thing I know ,you had your tongue down my throat...and had my dress off"she said,laughing at the memory of their first dates....

"Admit it...You had been checkin me out all those years too."he said.

"No I wasn't...Ohhhhhh,okay...I always did have a lightweight crush on you...but I didn't even tell Olivia that...I felt so funny....because Beverly was like my girlfriend too...My little sister.....and here I was screwing her father."she said..

Jimmy laughed...

"Come here...You're my dream come true too."she said...

They kissed passionately on the bed...Soon Jimmy was removing her top and unhooking her bra and marveling at her breasts...

Malinda was kissing him passionately....

He began devouring her lips...She was breathing heavily and continuing to kiss him passionately...

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu..Jimmy...oh my goodness...ouuuuuu.."she moaned..

They wound up on their bed...kissing and humping like crazy.....


"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu....oh my gooodnesss...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh."she moaned..as she and Jimmy continued kissing.....

He was kissing her softly and breathing heavy...

"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, Oh My god..." she was moaning...

They resumed kissing again and he laid her down on the bed and began to enter her softly and slowly again......

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu Jimmy...I never imagined...ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu."she said..

"Me neither..ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my godddddddddddddd...Malinda...this is sooo good..almost like the first time.."he said...

"Yesssssssssssssss...ohhhhhhhhhhhhh my goddd..."she moaned..

For the next five hours...They made slow ,passionate love..He took his time...He was as usual very gentle and loving and patient with her...

She found herself climaxing....not once...not twice..but three times.....

Her head moved from side to side...sweat and tears poured down her face and she found herself shaking ....Jimmy exploded and came like a gusher.....

They lie next to each other breathing heavily...Wondering what had just happened...She softly rubbed Jimmy's penis..which got as hard as a brick right before her eyes...

"Ohhhh my goodness..Jimmy..."she exclaimed...

Before she knew it..He had rolled over and was on top of her again for round two...

"Oh My goddd..Jimmy...Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.."she moaned...


They kissed passionately and Jimmy found himself going in and out of Malinda again...Her skin was soft and her breasts were just a mouthful enough to be perfect for him..He licked and sucked on them until Malinda found herself coming again...

He wouldn't come for another two hours and when he did...He came furiously...Harder than he ever had before...

"OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" he screamed...

Malinda laughed... A few minutes later...She eased on top of her husband.....

She moved up and down for close to an hour....This motion made them both feel very good...He kissed her neck, her cheek and her lips until he found himself coming harder than he'd come in a long time...

It took her about a minute..but soon she climaxed too...Shaking mightily and moaning until she collapsed on him with sheer exhaustion...They both laughed....


 ''Wow..that was amazing" she said as she looked at her husband...

He smiled...

''I had wanted to do that to you since you was 16.."he said.

"Nasty dog."she said and she laughed as they lay in bed soaking in coital afterglow.
