Pain Merchants


PHILADELPAHIA 2041- SIX WEEKS AGO!

A spirited game of Dominos was being played.....One man...A heavy set man wearing aviator shades crapped out....


"Come on guys...I was on a run here.." he laughed..


Another man said-


"Beans...You think I'm going to advance you so you can go back into the hole..You're already down 25 Large." he said..


He took off his watch...


"Here..Take this...This watch is worth 100 large... Very expensive watch..." he said..


Before he could pass it to the man he was playing with, A short, well dressed Asian man snatched the watch...


He peered at it and smiled..


"Beans...Come on...This watch is worthless....You couldn't get one hundred dollars for this at the pawn shop, let alone...100 large..Come on, get up.." he said softly, still smiling..


"Come on Billy..Let me get in and redeem myself...You know how I do...I run cold for a minute, then I get on a streak and it's like magic...I'm flush all of a sudden..I've done it before.." said the man known as Beans..


"Yeah, you did it once before..That was five years ago..Come on Beans..get up..Give somebody else a chance to play." said Billy Wong gently...


He escorted Thomas "Beans" Bowls down the hallway and out into the back alley...

There a Black man ,about six foot seven stood..He was quiet...

 and next to him, a muscular white man, about six foot four stood...


The man named Beans now looked worried...He looked terrified..


"Beans...How much you into me for?" said Billy Wong...


"Twenty-Twenty Five Large Billy, but I'm good for it.. You know that...Let me get back in the game...L-Let me win some of that dough back.. Look...Take my car outside.. It's worth some of the money huh? Come Onnnnnn?" said Beans..


Billy Smiled..


"That car is a what?  A 2025?? ...It's 2041 now...Hmmm..I could get about six or seven large for it...Yeah, I'll take it, but that's not enough..." he said and walked away...


Beans went to walk away, but the big white man grabbed him and slugged him in the stomach...Then several times in his jaw....


"Ummmmmmmmmmmmph,Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!" moaned Beans...


Then the white man took a baseball bat and cracked him in the ribs....


"Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!" screamed Beans...


And then a final crack to the knees...


"OARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!" yelled Beans ,who collapsed in the street...


All along the tall Black male said nothing...He winced....


The white man looked at him and smiled..


"Brings back memories huh Jefferson....??" he laughed..


The black man said nothing...He just winced..


The white man looked at him..


"Call 911 Jeff.....Use a burner phone..And then bring the car around...Boss Man and I got to see somebody else about a uh collection." laughed the White man...Known as "Mr. Pink"

TODAY


The body of a six foot four ,heavily muscled white male floated in the huge Jacuzzi at the Century Bath house...The water, usually a sparkling Aqua...was a crimson red as the body floated face up to the top...The menacing eyes still open and staring lifelessly at the ceiling.....


I stood there looking at the body and shaking my head.......


I am Homicide Detective, Nate Nellis...I knew this guy.....My Sister in Law, Dr. Monique Talbert had on a white latex body suit....She waded into the pool and looked at the body...


"He took two shots to the chest...one right through the heart....That was the fatal shot...And one shot to the head....That was unnecessary...and two to the knees..So, so unnecessary..."she mused..


"Unnecessary?" I said kneeling over the pool.....As C.S.I. people and photographers took photos..


"The first shot...The one to the heart killed him instantly...The second shot..to the chest and the shot to the head were all administered after death...as well as the two to both knees..." she said..


"Guess the killer was making sure he was dead." came the voice of my sexy partner and wife and also, Monique's identical twin sister, Detective Monica Talbert Nellis, who had just arrived with three uniform policemen!....


She kissed me passionately....As she knelt down and looked at the body...


"Ummmmm, How is my honey bunny?" she asked..


I blushed..


"Uh....Much better now!" I said....


Monique looked at both of us and laughed...


"You two are something else." she said.


"Do you know who that is?" I asked..


"Sure do...That there is Warren Lumbly...better known as "Mr. Pink" One of the most feared enforcers in the city...and recently in the employ of Billy Wong." said Monica.


I was impressed...


"Wow....I knew of those two when I worked Vice.."I said.


"I worked Vice too..and a number of guys went to the hospital with multiple fractures..usually of the knee caps and the ribs...for unpaid bills....Not one of them ever pressed charges...or even admitted to meeting Mr. Pink here.."said Monica.


"Same thing here....I wanted to bring him in so bad....I spent a month following him around...Snapping photos of him, looking through his financials..Clean as a baby's butt..Never could get anything on him and he was clean too...No arrest record...Not even a juvenile record...."I said..


"But everybody on the street knew when he was seen...A hospital visit was imminent.. They were Pain Merchants." laughed Monica.


"So this was a real bad guy huh? Somebody shot him five times...." said Monique, whose latex suit was wrapping around her tighter and revealing her sexy body, which rivaled her sister's...


"Yeah, and you know what? I'm not surprised that this is how he ended up....I knew that either we would make a case against him or somebody would put a bullet in him...You don't inflict as much pain as he did and have a happy ending."said Monica..


"Yeah...I felt the same way...He must have pissed somebody off.." I said.


"I'll say...at least three of the shots were after death...Well...Let's get him out of the water..."said Monique to her people...


"Sis...Let me get something and cover you...That latex body suit has tightened up on you and uh...some of the males here are slightly distracted..."she whispered as She took a cloth cover and wrapped her  sister in it..

The Latex body suit was sheer and you could see her bra and panties faintly through the suit....A fact that wasn't lost on several uniform cops who were sneaking a peak....

I couldn't blame them...My sister in law...like my wife ,possessed a very sexy body!


"Oh my goodness...Sure they aren't looking at you in that super short mini skirt?" asked Monique with tongue in cheek..


"Yeah...A few of them are, especially my husband..."giggled Monica..




"I think we need to pay his employer ,Mr. Billy Wong a visit.." I said.


"Good Idea Partner...The street cams around here were disabled...And so were the ones in the back...We are going to have to rely on the Business Cams and the ATM cams in the area..."said Monica..


"Of course there were no witnesses" I said dryly...


"No, not one...Which means this was deliberate...This was a hit....Somebody knew his schedule....Apparently, he rented this whole place to himself and came here and bathed and showered and frolicked every Wednesday..."said Monica..


"Hmm, maybe someone was looking to move up in Mr. Wong's organization.." I said.
We watched as the portly body of the man known as Mr. Pink was removed from the bath house and put on a stretcher and headed for the Medical Examiner's office.


II-

Monica and I headed to Billy Wong's Restaurant.... He had a very popular and Tony Restaurant....On the roof of his establishment were floating crap games and dominos games..He called them tournaments...but everybody knew it was illegal or semi-legal gambling...He was also known as a Loan Shark....His vicious enforcer,the now late Mr. Pink made him very successful...Nobody wanted a visit from him...


Billy Wong took in more money with this operation than he did with his restaurant....At any rate..He ran a quiet operation...Didn't attract a lot if any attention and the police mostly let him operate...


He didn't have any murders on him that we knew of...but the number of people with broken ribs, jaws and knee caps could have put him in prison for life if they had ever decided to press charges...


I walked in with Monica and four uniformed police officers and flashed  our badges and slowly...The room began to clear....Another Asian man known as Mr. Su....Walked over to us...He was younger than I, wore a very expensive tailored suit with very shiny shoes that probably cost more than my weekly take home salary...He managed the restaurant...But everyone knew he was just a front man for Billy Wong...He knew me quite well, from my days in Vice, when I was a young detective trying desperately to make a case against his boss and Mr. Pink.


"Detectives...To what do we owe the pleasure...???We don't have any violations here..Just some men having friendly games of chance..How's life treatin you Nate???...I see you got a prettier partner than your last one...What was his name again?"he asked politely..
"Knock it off Mr. Su...I'm not with Vice anymore...I'm Homicide.."I said.

Now he looked genuinely surprised..Something Monica noticed too..


''We'd like to speak to your boss...Billy Wong...Is he around?" asked Monica..


"Homicide?? What does Homicide want with us?   And uh No ,he isn't around...Haven't seen him today..He was supposed to be here however.....I called his home and his cell..No answer..." he said..


Monica nodded to me...He was telling the truth.


"How about Mr. Pink? You seen him?" I asked...


"He came in this morning and left about 9:30...He uh goes to the bath house....But he should be done by now...He should be on his way back.."said Su..


"He won't be back...Not ever!  He's dead....Which is why we are here!" I said.


Now Su was astounded and frightened...I could see it!


"DEAD??? What? Mr. Pink??" he said.


"It does seem strange right? Who would have the guts to take him out right?" said Monica staring at him...


She could tell that Su was thinking the same thing and that he had no idea who or how...


She tapped me on the shoulder..


"Partner....I just got a text from Kylie...They've located Billy Wong.! We are wasting our time with Mr. Su..He doesn't know anything!  This is news to him." she said.

She had scanned his mind.


III-
Monica and I arrived on the scene..Halfway across town on a deserted street........We saw Billy Wong's car parked on the corner... CSI were going over it for fingerprints...and DNA....


Detective Kylie White was kneeling down looking at the body of Billy Wong....


She smiled when she saw the two of us...


"Heyyy,I heard you two caught a body a few hours ago..." she said.


"Yeah, Mr. Pink....At the bathhouse....We were at Billy Wong's club...He was our number one suspect..."said Monica..


"Looks like we can rule him out.." I said...


A plastic bag had been placed on his head with duct tape...He had choked to death slowly, then been shot in both knees and in the side and finally in the head...


"Wow....somebody really wanted to make sure he was dead..." I said..


Monique peered at the body.....


"Wow...He choked to death.....Then he was shot a number of times...So Unnecessary...I'm seeing a pattern here...This was kind of personal.." said Monique..


Lt. Cotton walked up...


"Could of been any number of suspects...These two terrorized that area...and busted up a lot of people." he said looking down at the body..


He placed a carnation on Monique's dress  to ward off the smell of death and then pulled her to him and kissed her...He tried to run his hands up her dress, but she gently moved his hands..


"Frankie!! You're going to have to control yourself...We are in public baby!"she said..


"I can't control how I feel about you.." he said..


Monique giggled...

"That's beautiful Frankie, but you're going to have to control the PDA." she said laughing.

She was so crazy about him when she first met him....It was a dream come true that he was crazier about her...She felt a warm tingly feeling inside...


Monica sensed it and smiled...


"We have our work cut out for us...He has an estranged wife and several people he's had busted up..."said Monica.


"Mo-Mo...You and Nate look into his past alleged assault victims...Go over to vice...There is a whole list of them...Kylie..You talk to any present people who owed Billy Wong money...I'm going to talk to my guy over at OCB (Organized Crime Bureau and see if the Triads were warring or if anyone else was trying to move in on ole Billy boy." said Lt. Cotton..


He looked at Monique leeringly...


"When can I see you alone?" he whispered..


"I've got to autopsy this body...I don't know..maybe later.." said and smiled..


"Call me."he said and kissed her softly and walked away,...
"Don't ever talk about me and Nate again." said Monica ,smiling..
"Ever since we got engaged...He's become...a sex monster...He wants it all the time..He can't see me without trying to grope me ."exclaimed Monique..


"I personally don't see any difference...and you like it....You know you can't lie to me.."said Monica laughing..


"I love it...but..sometimes...It scares me...It's so intense..."said Monique..


"He's crazy about you...That's all....It could be worse..."laughed, Monica...


"You're right Sis.."said Monique...
"Judging from the lack of blood in this car..Billy Wong was killed somewhere else and brought here.."I said...

"Yeah....This may have been a hit..but it was personal too...Wong and Pink pissed somebody off, but who?"said Kylie..

"Take a number....They've busted up a number of people who have been late paying them...These are juice men...(Loan Sharks) as well as the fact that Billy Wong runs a book making and gambling operation that is second to none...He's real quiet....No murders are attached to him...Just a lot of hurt..."said Monica..

"And Now somebody has hurt him and his main man...The Pain Merchants."said Kylie..


"Let's get out of here...Nothing more we can do here.."I said.


So for the second time in one day, We watched a body being carted away.....


IV-
Some hours later, Monica and I met on a street corner to compare notes.....We were kissing passionately....

 "Partner, this isn't comparing notes..." she said softly as we came up for air...

''...I know..."I said....Taking the lead from my Lieutenant and Monique...I attempted to run my hands up her dress, but she moved my hand..

"Partner, you're fresh.."she laughed...

"Yeah...Well I've talked to all but one of the people who owe Billy Wong money right now...That was 19 people..They either haven't gotten in deep enough to have gotten a visit from Mr. Pink...And I'm judging that by the good health they exhibit or they are in hiding... Their alibis all check out."I said.

"I went to Vice...and spent the afternoon with Vice Detectives talking to about 50 people...None of who have seen or heard from Billy Wong or Mr. Pink since their unfortunate initial encounter...When I could get them to admit that they had dealt with him in the first place...The majority of them were smart enough to square themselves with Wong and put as much distance between him and them as possible...
Plus all of their alibis check out too.."said Monica.

"We gotta scrub those Business and ATM Cams and Traffic cams in the immediate area...see if anybody shows up...."I said.

"He has an estranged wife...We need to be talking to her.."said Monica..

We began kissing again.....

"Umm, this comparing notes is fun." I said.

''Ouuuuuuuuuuu yes...it can be...ohhhhhhhhhh.." said Monica.

"Ummmmm, anything else to talk about case wise?" I said in between more kisses...

"Partner....This isn't investigating....." she said while continuing to kiss me..

"You're right...We are setting a bad example aren't we?" I said...

"Totally..." said Monica....Laughing.....
