Get Me A Miracle

 TWO NIGHTS LATER-

Olivia stood outside the Oakland , California club and looked solemn, like she was contemplating something...I looked at her...

''Liv, something wrong? "I asked...

"This is too easy...." she said.

''What's too easy?" I asked.
"This case.....We have the panties with his DNA and fingerprints on them..right?" she said.

"Right and that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt , he assaulted her.." I said.

"Or he can say they had a consensual relationship or encounter ...It's still his word against hers...We have no witnesses to say otherwise.."said Olivia..

"We have five women that she told this story to who are willing to testify..."I said.

''They're her friends...Of course they'll bolster her story.." said Olivia..

"We have Mindy D-Cup....It happened to her and she has five women she told who are now willing to testify.."I said.

"You told me yourself that the condo she lives in was paid for by the station after she left....And that it might be payment for her silence...and then there are her friends...Three of the women still work at the station...Their jobs could be in jeopardy if they say anything...Culley's investigators are off duty detectives, They know who you talked to...What if they got to them?  I'm just weighing everything that could go wrong...I'm not trying to be a Debbie Downer dear heart, but If I'm asking these questions, making these arguments...Brian Culley will and worse, if it comes to that...So will a jury."said Olivia sighing..

''Baby Stop...Do you need a miracle? You need a miracle?? I'll go and get you one..." I said.

''What are you gonna do at this late point Donnie Ray??...The final hearing before we go to court is in two days? We've been here a week already..." she said.

"For you? I'll try...." I said smiling...

Olivia looked at me and smiled..

"You would wouldn't you?,Of All the men I've known...Nobody has ever loved me like you have..." she said and smiled..

We kissed passionately.....

"Donnie Ray...?" she said.

"Yeah baby?" I said as we broke our embrace...

"I know you just wanted a reason to kiss me...but I still thought what you said was sweet..."said Olivia..smiling.....

We both laughed....

"I wasn't saying it for a kiss. I meant it" I said.

She saw that I wasn't smiling...

Olivia smiled...

"Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww......You sweet mannnn, Go Get Me A Miracle.." she said.....

We kissed some more...


II-

 This was what made Olivia such a good attorney, her ability to argue a case effectively from both sides....and to consider every possible thing that could go wrong.. She told me that two Attorneys taught her that...Assistant District Attorney Keith Wallace..

 and ironically enough Judge Joseph Crawford...The horny judge who was always lusting after her, who was once her mentor..

"Judge Joseph Crawford is a major horndog...but he's also a fine attorney and a very smart man.."Olivia always said.
This quality and her penchant for grabbing every bit of information available on all of the players..including and especially her client is why she was one of the most dangerous attorneys to go up against in court...You'd better come correct or risk losing..

The longer I was around my wife, the more I respected her professionally......
She had taught her young niece Beverly the same thing...When I've worked on cases with just Beverly, she's asked for information on everybody involved ,including her clients...Because as Olivia explained to her..."Your clients don't always tell you everything.." And Beverly has often argued both sides of her case with both Nelson and Olivia on the eve of her trial..

Nelson, who had worked with both of them as a public defender, also used this technique himself when in court....He too was a savy Litigator...I respected the three of them ....


So I had to find myself a miracle..Something to airtight this case...And I had to go on what we Detectives used to call a hunch or our gut...

Beverly had told me that this guy Colgate couldn't control himself...and that he had even tried to feel her up.....

I was betting that he was still doing this to someone else...I hoped he was.. 

III- 

 Helen Acosta was one of San-Francisco's most popular weather girls....For much the same reason that Mindy D-Cup before her had been..She was young, attractive and had rather large ,prestigious breasts...
She was ,like the others, hired by Bud Colgate...She was a ratings sensation....Men all over San-Francisco watched the Fox Weather report most mornings...

And like the others...He had made leering comments....and suggestions about wearing sheer ,low cut tops and black,white and red lace bras...

She didn't like the comments, but like the others..she ignored them....She wore turtlenecks and knits...but even that couldn't hide what was so natural....

Her mini skirts and shapely legs had guys salivating also....Among them..Ted "Bud" Colgate...

Bud Colgate was watching her broadcast on this particular morning...After it was over...She smiled at him and waved...

He motioned to her to come into his office...

"Good Morning Mr. Colgate..."she said.

"My My...It IS A GOOD MORNING....I never noticed how big and shapely your legs are..." he said ,smiling..

" Well uh...Thank you.." she said..She kind of didn't know how to take that comment.

"Everything going good for you?" he asked..

"Yes.." she answered uneasily...

"Hmmmm ,well uh..I'm glad...If you have any concerns..and I mean any concerns..My office is always open and my door is closed..Heh-Heh-Heh.."he laughed..and rubbed his hand up and down her legs...

"Okay Mr. Colgate..I understand and I appreciate that sir." she said, slowly removing his hands...

"Ummmmmm, Are you wearing a Bra today Helen...?" he asked..

"Excuse me?" she asked...

He slowly and softly began to feel her breasts....

"I hope you don't mind....I-I-I just couldn't resist..." he said.

She removed his hands...

"STOP!" she said..."You're way out of line Mr. Colgate.."she said.

"I'm the boss..I'm never out of line."he said and soft caressed her breasts some more...

"Ummmm you like that? That gettin you hot baby?" he moaned..."It's Getting me aroused..." he said..

"You know this is wrong don't you? Aren't you already in enough hot water for doing this to someone else...?" she asked and removed his hands again...She couldn't believe the nerve and the boldness of this man.

"Noooo, My lawyer will get me out of this...Now look...You play your cards right...see.." he said as he eased his hand up her dress and pulled on the elastic waistband of her pantyhose...

"You can go ouuuuuuu, very far.....Ummmmmmmmmmmmm.." he moaned.."I love the texture of this kind of pantyhose...ummmmmmmmmmmm..." he moaned...

"Mr. Colgate...Please stop!" she said and moved his hand yet again....He almost immediately placed his hand on her breast and squeezed it a little bit...

"Oh My God! They're so soft..." he said.

"Okay,I'm respectfully asking you to stop..." she said.

"Can I have a little kiss Helen? Come on...The door is closed ...Nobody has to know..." he said.

"No, I don't think so...I'm leaving now.." she said and got up...

"Well uh Helen..There is no need to uh mention what happened in here to anybody..." he said.

"No..I won't...but you need to get some help sir..I think you're a sex addict.." said Helen...

"Heh..Heh..Heh..." he laughed...

A little while later I met Helen Acosta on the street...She gave me a zip drive...

"Here...you know this probably means the end of my job....but I was so tired of him pinching my ass and squeezing my tatas and his sexist remarks....Maybe we'll both be in the unemployment office at the same time..Aye Mios Dios.." she said.

"Hopefully you won't lose anything..."I said...but thanks...." I said.

She had placed the tiny micro-camera ,I had bought from a spy shop in Oakland in his office...It had picked up the entire exchange....I had told her to wear a particularly tight sweater and a mini skirt and dark pantyhose...I figured that would be enough to catch his eye and drive him overboard....I was right.

The camera had amazing pick up, both audio wise and video wise..We transferred the feed into an icon on her computer desktop and transferred it to a zip drive...
Our friend, Bonnie Shay had taught me how to do this..I knew this would come in handy someday.


IV-
 TWO DAYS LATER-

Olivia had not been too far off base... Mindy D-Cup had vanished...When it was time for her testimony, she was not only a no-show...She was not at the address in Richmond she had given me... Three of her friends who were supposed to testify now suddenly had a change of heart...The other two were willing to come forward....but without her there ,it made their testimony very suspect...Mindy D-Cup lived in a plush condo paid for by the Television Station in a silent agreement for her silence.. I understood.. She couldn't risk being out of doors  just to make a point...The other three women who still worked at the station had been gotten to...Colgate had money to throw around and resources...Attorney Brian Culley had a team of crack investigators who fed him all the information he needed...It was extremely hard to beat this guy with that kind of apparatus in place.

Today, The Regional Director of Fox News was in attendance also..He didn't look like he wanted to be here at all...His very presence made everybody a little nervous.



Olivia ,Beverly and Joanie walked into the hearing with all five of her witnesses ,who testified that she had told them about her ordeal and the ripped panties...

Brian Culley argued that this was a categorical lie...and that they were her friends and of course they would back her story up...

The panties ...the ripped panties with Colgate's DNA and fingerprints was another matter and hard to argue against...

Culley tried to say that she ripped them herself and that the two had had a consensual sexual relationship...

He flatly denied that he was present when any groping occurred...

Beverly's testimony that he certainly was there when Colgate groped her...was met with incredulous laughter and denial from Culley....

"Olivia you're really stretching now.. Using your niece as a witness...She's co-counsel...Ahahahahahahaha." he laughed.

"I witnessed no such thing." he scoffed...

I walked in and hooked my zip drive up to the computer screen...

I said nothing..

Bud Colgate was watching her broadcast on this particular morning...After it was over...She smiled at him and waved...

He motioned to her to come into his office...

"Oh Helen...Helen...Come here...Come in my office.." said Bud Colgate.

"Good Morning Mr. Colgate..."she said.

"My My...It IS A GOOD MORNING....I never noticed how big and shapely your legs are..." he said ,smiling..

" Well uh...Thank you.." she said..

"Everything going good for you?" he asked..

"Yes.." she answered uneasily...

"Hmmmm ,well uh..I'm glad...If you have any concerns..and I mean any concerns..My office is always open and my door is closed..Heh-Heh-Heh.."he laughed..and rubbed his hand up and down her legs...

"Okay Mr. Colgate..I understand and I appreciate that sir." she said. She removed his hands...

"Ummmmmm, Are you wearing a Bra today Helen...?" he asked..

"Excuse me?" she asked...

He slowly and softly began to feel her breasts....

"I hope you don't mind....ummmmph,I-I-I just couldn't resist..." he said. She removed his hands again..

She removed his hands...

"STOP!" she said..."You're way out of line Mr. Colgate.."she said.

"I'm the boss..I'm never out of line."he said and softly caressed her breasts some more...

"Ummmm you like that? That gettin you hot baby?" he moaned..."It's Getting me aroused..." he said.
"You know this is wrong don't you? Aren't you already in enough hot water for doing this to someone else...?" she asked..

"Noooo, My lawyer will get me out of this...Now look...You play your cards right...see.." he said as he eased his hand up her dress and pulled on the elastic waistband of her pantyhose...

"You can go ouuuuuuu, very far.....Ummmmmmmmmmmmm.." he moaned..

"Mr. Colgate...Please stop!" she said and moved his hands...He almost immediately placed his hand on her breast and squeezed it a little bit...

"Oh My God!" he said.

"Okay,I'm respectfully asking you to stop..." she said and firmly removed his hands again..

"Can I have a little kiss Helen? Come on...The door is closed ...Nobody has to know..." he said.

"No..I won't...but you need to get some help sir..I think you're a sex addict.." said Helen...

"Heh..Heh..Heh..." he laughed...

(click!)

Brian Culley sat down in his chair and slumped down slowly.....He looked sick.....

"Ohhhh god have mercy!" he moaned...He took an Alka -Seltzer tablet out of his pocket and dropped it into the bottle of cold water and took a swig...

The Regional Director looked at Bud Colgate...He'd seen and heard enough..

"I want your resignation on my desk this afternoon Bud...before the close of business...You're done here.I don't believe you....I've heard the stories....but seeing you in action is a whole different animal..." he said.

Brian Culley then  looked at Olivia....All the fight was out of him..He looked tired..weary....

"Olivia, what do you want?" he said.

Olivia smiled and wrote a figure on a piece of paper...She passed it to him...

He passed it to the Regional Director..

"Give her what she wants." he said and stormed out of the office...

Brian Culley looked at Olivia-

"Nicely done counselor!!!" he nodded in respect to Olivia......"Joanie..we'll arrange for payment on Monday....."he sighed and picked up his briefcase and walked out...He didn't even look at Bud Colgate who was so surprised ,he couldn't believe what had just happened...He'd been fired...The station was actually going to pay Joanie...

He stood up and looked at Olivia and Beverly...


He shook his head in disbelief and then turned his head toward me..

He looked like he wanted to shoot me....but he didn't say anything.

He stomped his foot in anger and stormed out!

"If you weren't Liv's husband...I'd kiss you.." said Joanie...

"I'm gonna kiss him right now..My Guy..My miracle man.." she said and we began kissing very passionately, right there in the conference room..


"Mmmmmmmmmmmm thank you baby!" said Olivia as she kissed me...


"It was..It was my pleasure....ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.."I moaned as we continued kissing..



Beverly smiled..

"Come on Joanie...Let's celebrate...Get some wine...They're going to be here awhile." she said.

Joanie smiled..

"Oh Myyyyy,I see." she said and she and Beverly walked out....laughing....

Olivia and I continued to kiss passionately...

EPILOUGE-
 Helen Acosta did not lose her job...In fact,she got a raise...Mindy D-Cup was offered her job back...She declined and moved to Los Angelas...Joanie Makely also moved back to Los Angelas after she received her settlement...A Huge one...and paid us of course...It was our biggest payday to date.

Bud Colgate's life deteriorated into a Haze of Marijuana and Booze..He never worked again...On New Years Day...


His body was found on the street in Daly City,California..He had taken his own life...He had shot himself to death....



Brian Culley resigned as Chief Counsel for the Network....He still practices privately in the area...



That night we all celebrated in downtown San-Francisco at a wine bar that Larry North had told us about.

 "God..I sure wish we had another week to spend out here Sylvia." said Olivia..
 "Me too...I am loving this weather...Not too hot, not too cold.."I said.
 "Oh me too...but at least we did get to go shoe shopping and to the boutiques..Wait til I show Josie these kicks.."said Beverly...
 "I could use a few more days myself.."laughed Nelson..
"Come visit us next year....Non-Work related...and just hang out...You always have a place to stay...
All of you..."said Sylvia...."Tell Josie to come out too..." she added..

Larry smiled..

"Yeah that would be nice....Glad you guys won your case...I would've paid to see old Culley's face...When he realized he lost the case..." he laughed.

 "Oh My God...HE looked Sick...He slumped down in his chair and you could see all of the fight was out of him..."laughed Beverly...

''Donnie Ray,how did you get Helen Acosta to go for it...?" asked Olivia..

"I had a hunch that the old octopuss never stopped being the letch he was ,so I talked to her...and sure enough he had done the same things to her he'd done to the others...So I told her exactly what to wear that day and she let me in after hours and I planted that Micro-camera...He took the bait ,just like I knew he would...He was too easy and not a bit subtle...You saw the film.."I said.

"Yeah man...He just went for it....He's a freak..." laughed Nelson...

"You aren't much different when the doors are closed.." laughed Beverly...

We all laughed...

"Don't you laugh Larry...Neither are you.." laughed Sylvia...

We all busted out laughing..

I peered at Olivia...

"Don't you laugh either, the way you're always coming on to me..."She joked..

"It's not harrasment if you like it." I said and smiled.
''And you do like it.." I said.
" I like it with you dear heart" laughed Olivia...as she gently held my hand....
We all laughed and enjoyed more wine....and the San Francisco night!

I laughed myself silly when the lawyer collapsed in the chair and dropped an Alka Seltzer tablet in his water....
