A Sobering Ending

My main man Sean Jackson sat in the car across the street from the house that Brad Garrison had been renting...Clerow, Owen Todd, Peeping Tom and Lockpick Johnson followed me inside the house...

We searched the entire house this time to make sure that we didn't have any unknown and unwanted visitors...
With that done...Peeping Tom, Lockpick Johnson and I headed into the basement....Clerow and Owen Todd remained upstairs...as lookouts...

"Look Big Cheese...There is the safe..."said Lockpick Johnson...

"I see....Apparently ,neither Mr. Lojack nor I made it to the basement the other day.."I said as Peeping Tom examined it to make sure it wasn't booby trapped..

"Looks simple enough my friend..."said Tom..

Lockpick Johnson did his thing and blew the safe in record time....


Inside was a zip drive and a gun..The gun was in a plastic bag...


"This must be what they were looking for...Come on,let's get out of here." I said.

II-
 Back at Morris Investigations ,we viewed the Zip Drive....It was a copy of ledgers....Ledgers that had payments and deliveries of Cash Edwards main product...His only product..Heroin...High grade Heroin..The names on the ledger was a virtual who's who of Athletes...Politicians, Rappers and models in the area....But there was also something else....
A photo of the gun....Up close....It had finger prints on it...

Next was a list of people...Witnesses..This gun was used in the murder of a low level drug dealer named Fink Jones....The murder occurred about five months ago....

This was dynamite...I had no idea how Brad Garrison got ahold of this...but if this was his leverage, his insurance...and they suspected he might have it...This would be reason enough to have him murdered, silenced...

"It's been awhile gentlemen...Copy this...Take good photos of that gun....Box it and send it to Lt.Sissy Van Buren..."I said.

''We on it Kev."said my guys...

I smiled as I left the building.

III-
Lymon Lemon answered the door and I walked in...

"Kevin...What are you doing here?" he asked.

"I came to see you.."I said.

"Me?" he asked...

"I found some papers in the house the other day...Papers Brad left behind..."I said.

"Oh you uh want next of kin?" he asked..

"No....There was a recent prescription for oxi cotin there....It was for you and it was your handwriting.."I said and stared at him hard...

Lymon sat down.....

"What do you think?" he asked..

"I think you're using..."I said softly....

"Kevin, please, I hit a rough spot..a rough patch....I-I just needed a little to get me through a rough patch.." he said.

''When did they come to you and tell you to step on his protein drink?" I asked.

"It was Calvin and a Big goon..A Low Ride, Lojack or something...They smacked me around...but I wouldn't do it...They took the oxi and they mixed it....They told me if I didn't give it to him they'd kill me..." he said.

"You knew when you hired me...I'd find this out didn't you?" I asked..

"No...I didn't know...Hiring you was just window dressing to let my customers know that he wasn't using on my watch." said Lymon...

"When did you find out he was using again?" I asked.

"We both found out about each other...We are pathetic aren't we?" said Lymon, sighing..

Just then I heard the sound of a gun clicking and turned around...

Standing in the doorway was Lojack and Cash Edwards...

"Yeah you are pathetic....and if I don't get what I want..You're both dead!"came the cold voice of Cash Edwards!

His goon Lojack was there too..Holding a gun on us...

"Lojack...How you doin man?" I said laughing...

Lojack had two black and swollen eyes, a swollen lip and a bandage on his head...

Lymon looked at him...

"Damn, what truck did you run into ?" he asked.

"Shut up faggot!"said his boss Cash Edwards...Who looked at Lojack..."This is the guy who tuned you up? I shoulda known..He's a Private Investigator...Always sticking his nose where it don't belong.."said Cash...

"Awwww Cash...Is that anyway to talk to somebody? That aint politically correct you know." I said.

Cash had no sense of humor..

"YOU need to shut it up...Now I want those papers you took out of that house.." he snapped.

"Papers..??Papers?? Those papers didn't have nothin of any consequence on em."I said.

"Oh yeah?" snarled Lojack..

"Well...Neither of you are in jail yet are you?" I asked..

They both looked at each other and shrugged their shoulders...

"What you should be asking for is the zip drive I found....The one that has copies of your payments and deliveries of uh ruh Heroin to the city's movers and shakers and the gun with your fingerprints on them Lojack...the one you killed Fink Jones with ,probably on orders from your punk boss here."I said and smiled..

Now Cash was furious...he slapped Lojack in the head...

"You damn fool..I told you to go back there and take ANOTHER LOOK!"he snapped..

"I did go back...I couldn't find anything..."protested Lojack...

Cash cocked his pistol and aimed it at my head..

"I don't intend to play any more games or do any more talkin.. TO EITHER OF YOU!!You got five seconds to hand whatever you found over to me and any copies you made." he snarled...

"AND YOU'VE GOT FIVE SECONDS TO DROP THAT GUN AND PUT YOUR HANDS UP!!! BOTH OF YOU!!!" said Lt. Sissy Van Buren...She was there with five uniformed policemen...and her detectives...Tyriq Pile, Carlotta Rodriguez-Wallace,James Barlow, Sirena Pile and Tony Hopkins..

Cash stomped his foot in anger...

"I DON'T BELIEVE IT!!  I'M GETTIN ARRESTED!" he snarled..



"Happens to best of us dude..." I said...

He looked at me like he wanted to strangle me...I smiled..


"Once again Kev..You're on it." Said Tyriq, who unarmed them both.....
"Thank You Papi." said Carlotta...who kissed me on the cheek and handcuffed Lojack...


''We'll take it from here." said Jimmy...who handcuffed Cash Edwards...


"Thanks Kevin...Fink Jones was my only open case...Now I have 100 percent clearance." said Sirena...
Who stared at Cash Edwards and said..."I told you I'd get you.."

He shrugged his shoulders....

"Yup..I knew something would pop and open this case up."said Hop..




"I was only too glad to help." I said.

They handcuffed Lojack and Cash Edwards....and read them their rights...

Cash Edwards glared at both Lymon and me..... He was so angry, tears were flowing down his face....

Lojack just stared ahead....

"Thanks for the call Kevin...How did you know these two would show up here?" asked Sissy.

"They've been tailing me for a couple of hours now,as if I didn't know it and I knew that they would eventually want to talk to Lymon here to see if he knew anything." I said...

They had been tailing me since I had left my house...I called Sissy...She had gotten my "anonymous " care package and had gotten warrants sworn out on them..I told her where I was going and where to meet me..

"Good pull...Thanks again...We can close a cold murder case and take these two drecks off the street for dealing as well as close a current one."said Sissy.

"A current one?" I asked...

"Yes.."

Hazel changed Brad Garrison's cause of death from Mis adventure to Homicide yesterday.." said Sissy...

"Well....You got your two guys..."I said..

"Yup...Thanks Again Kevin." said Sissy..."Let's go guys." she said as they all left...

Lymon looked at me....

''So what happens to me?"he asked.

''You testify and you put yourself back into rehab....Simple as that..." I said.

Lymon smiled ruefully.....

"Me..A Sober Living Assistant going to rehab for the second time..."he said...Then he laughed...

When you thought about it..It was kind of funny...

IV-
Some Hours later ,Calvin Butts sat in the low end theory bar smiling at the bar maid and having a drink.....

I walked in and sat next to him...

"Hi Cal...Calvin Butts huh?  You know I've been looking for you for three days and I've finally found you..?" I said smiling...

"Do I know you?" he asked..

"No..but I know so much about you...Like the fact that you sell Heroin and that you worked for a guy named Cash Edwards..."I said.

"What do you mean worked for?" he asked.

"Cash? Oh Cash and Lojack got arrested a few hours ago for selling Heroin and for a murder they committed a few months ago...Of Fink Jones..Your boy...The one you set up...And for conspiracy in the recent murder of Brad Garrison....You know about that too...You were in on that...At least that's what they said...They both rolled on you in record time.."I said.

"You a cop?" he asked.

"No..but I am!" said Detective Angie Belton-Barlow, who was there with Detective Duke Baylor and  three uniformed policemen..



"Hook him up guys " said  Duke as they handcuffed Calvin Butts and read him his rights..

"Much Obliged Kev."said Duke, who tipped his hat to me.. I smiled and waved.

Angie  kissed me softly on the cheek...Next to Sepia...No other woman had turned me on more..



"The Boss Lady says thanks again Kevin..."She said and blushed a little bit  and she ,Duke and the police left with Calvin Butts.....

I watched her as she walked away...

For all intents and purposes...This case was closed...

EPILOUGE-
Lojack Stevens was convicted of Second Degree Murder and Conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and sentenced to 25-50 years...

Cash Edwards was convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute controlled substances and running a criminal enterprise and sentenced to 25 years ...He was convicted on two counts of conspiracy to commit murder and given an additional 15 years..

Calvin Butts was convicted of the murder of Brad Garrison and sentenced to 15-25 years....

Lymon Lemon put himself back into rehab...He wrote another book about his experiences.. but no one ever took him serious as a Sober Living Assistant again...He is currently out on the West Coast looking for a movie deal.

Sepia and I were enjoying a rare night out at a new Steak Restaurant that had recently opened up in the neighborhood..

"Kevin this food is delicious.." said Sepia..

"It is...and wait until you taste the wine.."I said...


A familiar and hulking figure walked over to our table.. It was Kool Kat...


''Well I'm back after one week...and I see you're still alive and in one piece.." he said.
"I took good care of him."laughed Sepia...

"She did!" I said in between gulps of Steak....

Kool Kat smiled wryly...

"Probably in ways I can't." he said..

''And you know that."said Sepia...as the three of us laughed..
