True Love After All

3 WEEKS LATER-

The trial of ADA Nina Rios was going full tilt...Had been going full tilt for three weeks..
Olivia, Beverly and Nelson were throwing everything but the kitchen sink at the government....



They had 100 charactor witnesses from The ADA's office, The Public defenders office and the Police Department testify to Nina's good charactor and honesty....

They argued their theory that she was taken advantage of by an operative named Billy Baldwin...A grifter and Lothario who had a record of bilking women out of their life savings...

The government's Attorney , AUSA Josiah Steele was a pit bull...He pressed his case that Nina Rios was trying to move up in the political world and would do anything to get that advantage...Even sling a little mud on a key contributor to her rival's campaign...

Beverly countered with Drinkwater's record and the fact that he was about to be indicted for Insider trading and wire fraud...

Steele fought hard to have this supressed....but the Judge surprisingly allowed it...

Steele then argued that we were making this case about the missing Billy Baldwin, who no one could prove existed...

Olivia was waiting for that...She produced his mug shot and extensive criminal record...She even brought up the fact that she had represented him years ago...She produced photos of him as Jack Connor, working at the federal courthouse where he had access to sensitive trial information...

Nelson interviewed several people who worked with him at the federal courthouse who knew him as Jack Connor...He produced photographs of him.

Beverly produced photos of him as Connor Elsworth ,his second alias and produced several employees at the ADA's office who thought he and Nina Rios were a "delightful and cute looking couple." she had no idea who he really was..

I located FBI forensic reports that verified his fingerprints and DNA on Nina Rios's Laptop...I also retrieved the listening devices that were used in her house and a bill of sales and a store photograph that showed him purchasing the devices...

Olivia drove this home to the jury ,picked by Beverly...
(of 3 Black women, 3 Latino women...3 White men and 3 Latino men...All were under 50 , all were working to middle class and all were registered voters...It was a stroke of genius...)  That these devices had no business being in Ms Rios's house in the first place and furthermore...Why was he on her laptop???

It was Billy Baldwin , she argued ,who had stolen sensitive information and put it on her hard drive and leaked it....It was Billy Baldwin who had not been seen by Ms Rios since or contacted her....argued Olivia and Beverly...

Steele was purely exasperated....He was losing and he was losing bad and he knew it....He called a side bar and offered a plea deal...

"Look..we drop the most serious charges and we eliminate jail time and Ms. Rios agrees to probation." he said.

"HAAAAAA"laughed Beverly...

"No way...She'll be disbarred if she pleads guilty to any of this.."said Olivia..

''Yes, but it's a first offense...You can argue for her re-instatement a few months later..You did this before, for that Soloman Foster fellow and he did three years in prison...You got his law license re-instated..."he said.

''He was actually guilty...She is not...NO DEALS!" said Olivia.

''Alright...Have it your way...But you still don't have Baldwin...It's going to be hard selling people on a boogie man."he said.

Olivia looked at me with those soulful eyes...

"I'm sorry Liv...I've torn this city upside looking for him...Can't find him....The Police and The FBI haven't had any luck either...I'm afraid he may have left town...Plus...He hasn't been indicted for any crime...They have no incentive to look for him further."I said ,hanging my head down..

"That's okay baby,I know you did your best...you always do....We'll have to go with what we have."said Olivia.

''Auntay,I think we've done exceptionally well. The fact that Steele proffered us a deal is proof that he knows his case is weak..."said Beverly...

''Shortcake has a point Livy...He wouldn't have even have offered you a deal unless he knew he was about to lose...I've done my research on this guy...100 convictions...Maybe two or three losses...He's good."I said.

"Liv,Beverly, Nelson, Donnie Ray...Thank you all...but I'm just so tired, so weary...This is not at all what I thought it was going to be...All this and I haven't officially announced that I was considering a run for State's Attorney ."said Nina..

''Don't worry..This is almost over Nina..We are gonna get you off."said Nelson.

II-
And elsewhere in Philadelphia at an old deli frequented by Attorneys and Politicians...Incumbent State's Attorney,Cyrus Proctor sat with three friends of his...They were enjoying beers and Corn Beef Sandwiches..
"Man...Nobody can make a corn beef special like Danny...My pops used to bring me here when I was a boy."said Cyrus...

"Cyrus....That babe, that ADA you set up....she's not going to be a problem is she?" asked one of his friends..

"How would she be?"asked Cyrus as he chowed down on his sandwich and quaffed down a cold brew...

"Well, first off, she got bailed out a lot quicker than anyone could think and she's got three attorneys...Two are heavy hitters...Olivia Bennett-Alexander and Beverly West...and another one, Nelson East...I was by the trial a few days ago...Steele is losing this one...They're killing him." said the one man...

''So what? Even if she's acquitted , what can she do? her reputation will be so stained publicly just by having the stench of these allegations tied to her that her credibility as a candidate will be lost.."said Cyrus..

''She'll be disbarred right?" asked another man..

"Nah, not if she's acquitted...but she'll be done as a candidate."said Cyrus..

"They were bringing up Drinkwater and your boy Billy Baldwin...They had his DNA and fingerprints on the laptop...."said another guy...

"Idiot...he should have used latex gloves..."snapped Cyrus..

"They got photos and testimony of people who knew him at the Federal Courthouse and people from the D.A.'s office who knew him when he was bangin Rios."said another man..

Cyrus smiled..

"If I ever get in trouble...I think I'll hire Olivia Bennett -Alexander and her niece...They really do their homework.."he laughed...He then looked at his friends..."Relax...there is nothing they can prove regarding Drinkwater...I've already got Steele working on getting his charges dropped and as far as Baldwin...He's long gone by now....He is a ghost...They can work that story if they want to...Hell, it might work...They might get her off...but with him out of the picture...They have nothing that can tie him to us...I don't care if Rios beats the charge...I just don't want her running against me.."laughed Cyrus.. "Hey Danny, you got any cole slaw?" he asked.

III-

Another Day in court ...The last day of the trial...Olivia and Beverly were making their final arguments....









I thought they were doing excellent...So did Nina..

"They are really good...I am so grateful they are doing this for me....I always expected to go up against them in court one day...I never expected them to be representing me.."said Nina...

''Stranger things have happened "laughed Nelson, who acted as a third Attorney on the case and helped them coach witness testimony...as well as do much of the background research on the case...

I sat back and watched as the whole thing drew to a close...Soon it would  be up to the 12 jurors to decide..

AUSA Steele made his final argument...It sounded more like a desperate man's plea....he knew his case against Nina was weak and he was grasping for straws...Trying almost anything....He had a look on his face that said..

"I'm dying up here.."

It got worse when we heard a booming voice from in back of the courthouse....

"STOP THIS...STOP YOUR LYING NOW." came the voice...It was Billy Baldwin AKA Connor Elsworth, AKA Jack Connor..

''My name is Billy Baldwin....I'm a con artist and a professional thief and hacker...I pretended to be an Analyst at the federal building so I could steal sensitive information regarding Mr. Drinkwater's trial and then I was supposed to pretend to romance Ms. Nina Rios ,so I could hack into her computer files, place the information there and secretly leak it....All in a plan to discredit her...I was paid well by her opponent..Cyrus
Proctor...The only thing that went wrong was....I wasn't pretending to be in love with Ms. Rios...I AM IN LOVE WITH HER!!! AND I COULDN'T STAND TO SEE HER LIFE RUINED OR HER REPUTATION AND GOOD NAME BESMIRCHED BECAUSE OF ONE AMBITIOUS AND EVIL MAN'S DESIRE TO HOLD ON TO AN OFFICE THAT HE HAS STAINED....I LOVE HER AND I AM SURRENDERING MYSELF TO FEDERAL AUTHORITIES RIGHT NOW!" he said.

The jury and everyone else gasped...The Judge's mouth dropped open....

AUSA STEELE took his glasses off and stomped his feet in disgust.....






Olivia, Beverly,Myself and Nelson were as stunned as everybody else...U.S. Marshalls handcuffed him, read him his rights and promptly hustled him off...

He stared at Nina...

"I do love you...That was me that sent you the bail money and the Public defender....I used the money Cyrus paid me...I couldn't spend it on myself...and I couldn't see you sitting in jail for something you didn't do...I tried to call you at your house...but I didn't get an answer.."he said as they dragged him out..."I do love you Nina...No other woman has ever made me feel as good as you did." he said, crying profusely....

IV-
"Your honor in light of these new revelations...The Government moves to drop all charges against ADA Nina Rios." said AUSA Josiah Steele..

"So be it....All charges against you are here by dismissed...You are free to go ADA RIOS." said the Judge..

"Oh My god...Oh My God!" screamed Nina as she hugged Olivia and Beverly...


 "I told you we'd get you off."laughed Olivia,hugging and kissing her good friend..

''You're free and clear Nina.."laughed Beverly...

"Oh my God, thank you so much." she said and kissed both me and Nelson in the lips...She had soft lips and she smelled great...

"You're our friend Nina...It's the least we could do." I said..

"So I guess you want to go home and plot your next move huh?" said Nelson...

"No...I've done a lot of thinking...I'm not going to run for States Attorney....I'm not a politician....I'm an Attorney." said Nina..


"So what will you do now Nina?" asked Beverly...

"I'm going to stay here in Philadelphia and continue to be the best ADA I can be." said Nina Rios...


"YAYYYYY, We can go shoe shopping on weekends still"said Olivia...hugging Nina..

And at Danny's Diner in South Philadelphia...State's Attorney Cyrus Proctor hadn't heard the news yet...

"Danny...I'll take one Jewish Hoagie for here and one for tonight...The Phillies game you know."he laughed..

"YOU BETTER GET THEM BOTH TO GO ,YOU'RE UNDER ARREST CYRUS!" came the voice of Deputy FBI Special Agent in Charge, Sharon Hopkins..

He smiled and looked at her...

"Little girl...I've been an Attorney and in city politics longer than you've been in the FBI....I know your boss.."he said, smiling...

"Cuff him...Read him his rights.......Oh and Mr. Proctor...If you should see my boss...Tell him drinks are on me after the Phillies game tonight..." said Sharon....

Outside ,all three of Cyrus's cronies and Harvey Drinkwater were all in handcuffs and being led to federal cars...

Cyrus looked at her and scoffed...

"I'll have your badge...little girl..."he said.

Sharon smiled...

"Think so huh? Do I even look like I'm the least bit worried??..Get him out of here." she said to the other FBI agents...

"I don't believe this...I'm being arrested....I don't believe this!" he scoffed....

That afternoon...We all celebrated Nina Rios's freedom and exoneration at the Brewery....

''Wow ,so glad that that is over...But even more glad that you are free and clear and still going to be my shoe shopping friend."said Olivia ,hugging Nina.

"I'm glad my name was cleared too..." said Nina...

"You know...You could have run if you had wanted to..."I said.

"Yeah, but politics is too cut-throat...I prefer putting the cut-throats behind bars." said Nina.

"I'll drink to that."said Beverly...

"I will too."said Nelson...

"Me too" said Josie...

And we hoisted our brews and quaffed them down....

Deputy FBI Special Agent in charge ,Sharon Hopkins and her husband, Detective Tony Hopkins walked up to our table..

"You got room for two more?" she asked..



''Sure Sharon...you and Tony pull up some seats.." said Olivia ,Beverly and I in unison...

"Nina honey I'm so sorry I had to arrest you...I never believed that you did what they were saying you did."said Sharon..

''That's okay...You were doing your job as you were supposed to do...Forget about it.."said Nina.

"Cyrus Proctor, Drinkwater and three others were all arrested today and being charged with more federal crimes than I can pronounce..."laughed Detective Tony Hopkins..

"None of that would have happened if Billy Baldwin hadn't of shown up and did the right thing...In the end..I guess he really did love you.."said Olivia..

"He did..he did after all."said Nina Rios...Allowing herself to smile ...

EPILOUGE-

Billy Baldwin cut a deal for complete immunity and testified long and hard against Cyrus Proctor, Drinkwater and the other three associates of his...
They thought AUSA Josiah Steele was in their coat pocket....He wasn't and after the embarrassment they had caused him, he prosecuted them all to the fullest and gave them all the maximum he could give them...

The three associates all got 10 years ,no parole in federal prison...Drinkwater got 10-15 years in Federal prison as did Cyrus Proctor...

"You all should be getting out around the same time...Maybe you can all meet at Danny's Diner and have Corn Beef sandwiches and Beer.." he said as they all headed toward Allenwood Federal Prison.

Billy Baldwin tried to call Nina Rios ...but she wouldn't answer her calls...He sent her long flowing letters ,declaring his love for her, but she tossed them in the shredder...He showed up at her door one night and unfortunately saw her leaving for a date with another young man she had recently taken up with...An Attorney.
Perhaps Nina had been his one true love after all..
 
In other news..Lo Mein's company made a huge payment to Kim Lee.....So huge he had to sell off some of his delivery trucks and lay off a few people..... A sobering end to his patronizing of strip clubs and massage parlors...

Olivia and I finished the day up doing what we usually do...

Kissing and making out...in our living room...

"Ummm Mama just loves you baby.."she cooed...

''Ouuuuuuu...Daddy loves you too."I said.

''Show me...Show mama how much.."said Olivia..

 "Ohhhh lawd girl.." I moaned...as we kissed and practically slobbered over one another..

She fondled me softly and gently,which was driving me crazy...I licked and sucked her breasts...Which was doing the same to her...But she didn't say a word...She opened her mouth a little, but no sounds came out..

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Mister Alexanderrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..............ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my goodnesss.........ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu..it's soo hard...ouuuuu"she moaned....

"Damn girl...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh." I moaned myself..

 I straddled Olivia on the bed... , We continued kissing...laughing ,silently....She kissed my neck, my chest, my cheeks and finally my lips...I kissed her breasts and her neck...finally, I was entering her luscious body....

"Oh My God....Oh my goddddddddddddd.."I moaned....

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Mister Alexanderrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..............ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my goodnesss.........ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.."she moaned....

Moving in and out slowly....Olivia moved up and down slowly....We both wanted to cry out..but we couldn't...

"Oh My God....Oh my goddddddddddddd.."she  moaned....

Olivia laughed......then tears streamed down her face....

The bed squeaked a little bit , we smiled at each other......She began licking my neck and sucking on it,which made me begin moving deeper and deeper into her warm and wet lusciousness.......Her body began to shake..she closed her eyes and opened her mouth wide......Shaking....

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...Yesssss..Mister Alexander....Ohhhhh"she moaned...

''Yes...yessssssssssssssss...ouuu, " I moaned..

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh .....ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my god...ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu."she cried out!

The bed squeaked a little bit more ...the headboard slammed against the wall...

Downstairs in Beverly's domicile...She and Josie were planning to go to Aqua Bar...They could hear our bed squeaking a little bit...

"I was going to ask Auntay and Donnie Ray if they wanted to go to Aqua Bar tonight, but from the sounds of things ,they're pretty busy."said Beverly..

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...Yesssss..Mister Alexander....Ohhhhh"she moaned...

''Yes...yessssssssssssssss...ouuu, " I moaned..

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh .....ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my god...ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu."she cried out!

The bed squeaked a little bit more ...the headboard slammed against the wall...

"Yeah...I can hear....I don't think they'll feel left out."said Josie..

"Oh My God....Oh my goddddddddddddd.."I moaned....

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Mister Alexanderrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..............ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my goodnesss.........ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.."she moaned....


"Nahhh, not at all.Come on...Nelson and Paris are going to meet us there."laughed Beverly as she locked the door and they both left...
