Girl in Plastic


PHILADELPHIA, PA. 2041-

The rare Friday Night that we were all able to relax and get our party on....We were in the newest nightspot in Philadelphia...A club called simple...Blue...It was called this because the entire interior was a very bright Aqua Blue...Definitely not the kind of club where you could hide out in a dark corner and do anything...
I'm Detective Nate Nellis, Homicide....Tonight...I'm just Nate...a married guy enjoying many dances with my wife and partner in homicide,

Detective Monica Talbert-Nellis... and my sister in law...Her identical twin sister and coroner, Dr. Monique Talbert..
both women had guys breaking their necks ,turning their heads and crashing into walls..They both were stunning.....Had on super tight mini skirts that hugged every inch of their luscious bodies..

Also with us ,was our friend, Detective Kylie White,No slouch either...with her honey brown skin...and sexy body.

and her boyfriend, my former partner...Detective Wally Becker....
The place was packed and the music was good...They had three D.J.'s who were tag teaming each other...I was so sweaty from dancing...I didn't want to be near anybody....
Lt. Cotton was here..He was bringing us drinks....Every woman in the place was trying to get his eye as he stood at the bar ordering our drinks..



Those drinks came in handy when the music paused for a few minutes...We all sat in our two booths drinking them down...

"This is so nice..All of us having a Friday night out ,with no cases brewing." said Detective Kylie White...

"Knock on wood darlin...the minute you say that..somethin comes up....You guys are murder police..Somebody is always bound to get killed.."said Wally Becker, my former partner from Special Victims Unit or "Sex Crimes" as we still reffered to it and Kylie's steady boyfriend...They had been together almost a year now and were talking about moving in together....

''Write this down Wally....For once...I agree with you."said Monica.

He laughed...

"Well we are all off duty tonight...The stars have aligned just right for us"I said as I sipped my last drink...

A slow song came on....

Lieutenant Cotton smiled at Monique...

"Let's dance sugar baby." he said...

"Okayyyy." she said and the two of them danced slow in the middle of the floor...

''Dance with me Wally..."said Kylie softly...

He took her in his arms and smiled.....

"This isn't an excuse for you to feel on my booty." she said and laughed...

He smiled salaciously at her...She blushed a little bit..

"Okay...Just a little bit, if you want to.." she laughed again...

"Come on...I don't want to feel left out.."I said to Monica...

"I'm tired bae.." she said and took her heels off and sat on my lap and put her arms around my neck...

She blew softly into my ear...

"Still feel left out?" she asked..

"Not at allllllllllll....Ummmmm this feels alright to me.." I said..

"I know it does..." she said and blew softly in my ear and sucked on my neck....

I don't know why...but at that moment ,I remembered a conversation I had with one of Monica's ex-lovers..Detective Bobby Sykes..

He whispered...

"Does she do that thing where she blows in your ear and sucks your neck? That used to make me blow my load within seconds.." he said and patted me on the back and walked away...

"I do that and that made you think of him?" asked Monica, who is a Mutant with telepathic powers ..She can hear my thoughts...

"That's not ALL it made me think of .."I said ,smiling sheepishly and trying to run my hands up her tight micro mini skirt...

"Ummmmmmmmmmmmm that's more like it." she said as we kissed passionately...

We were kissing so passionately...We didn't realize the music had stopped and everybody was coming back...

"You two....Always making out.....Get a room.." joked Monique...

"We got a room...Above yours...Remember?" joked Monica..

I said nothing...I just smiled sheepishly...
"Man...I can't believe this...Three days and no homicides...This is great...Death must have taken a holiday..." he laughed...

"Yeah,Imagine that.."said Detective Wally Becker...

We all laughed...




II-

 We partied until well past three in the morning...Which explains why...around a quarter to four, I got a call from our friend, Zig Higgenbottom, a club owner near the docks...We still had on our party clothes..
We arrived at the scene...Right outside his bar.....And there she was....Floating in the water...
Wrapped in plastic tarp .....She looked like she was sleeping..She was partially underwater.......I just stared at her....I said nothing...

She looked so peaceful as she floated to the top of the water........So serene....
So serene....Just sleeping....you would think...

"Divers....bring her body to the side...pull her up on the surface..." said Monica...

"You the primary on this Mo-Mo?" asked Lieutenant Cotton...

"Yeah...Nate had the last major case...I got this." said Monica...

I took one last look at her lying there looking so peaceful in death....It was mesmerizing..

 They pulled the body out of the water and laid her on the ground....

Monique bent down and felt the body....

''She's cold....I don't know how long she's been in the water...but she's not stiff...Maybe she was killed somewhere else and brought here..." Monique theorized...


"She was in my bar last night...I saw her.." said Zig Higgenbotttom, our friend..

Zig Higgenbottom was a hefty six foot four ..weighed like 500 pounds and was entertaining two very shapely attractive women...Just like he was when Monica and I first met him..He walked over to us....He told the two ladies to stand down...



"You know her Zig?" I asked..

"No, but I always remember a good looking woman when I see her..She was in my bar last night...I definitely remember her...She was there with a guy...He looked like a cop..I don't know if he was or not...but she was with him...He tried to get her to leave with him..She wouldn't...They argued...He grabbed her..She pushed him away...He stormed out...But she was at the bar at least another hour.." he said.

"You got film footage from your bar right?" asked Monica..

"I do...I do..." he said.

"I'll get it Mo-Mo. and I'll put a team on these Street Cams and Business Cams out here and traffic cams."said Kylie..
"You guys look kind of uh ruh...well uh gussied up.." said Zig...

"We were out partying until three in the morning..."said Lt. Cotton who passed us all tumblers of coffee..

''We were still up when we got your call.." he said.
"Where were you guys...At Blues?" he asked.

"Yeah, how'd you know?" asked Lt. Cotton..

"Big Grand Opening....Lots of people either left here to go there or came here from there..." said Zig...

"Cause of death was suffocation....I can tell by the pitikeal hemmoraghing in her eyes...Somebody put a plastic bag over her head and suffocated her...Then wrapped her in tarp and dropped her in the water..." said Monique..

I put her fingertip on my tablet and in two minutes got a hit...

"Our victim's name is Regina....Regina Baker....She's 29...And she doesn't have a criminal record, but because she works for the Liquor Control Board...her fingerprints are in the data base..." I said.

"You got an address?" asked Monica..

"Yeah.." I said...

''Well...That's where we are going next..." said Monica... "You can release the body.."she said to her sister, Monique..

"Okay guys....Release the body."said Monique...


III-
We flew towards the apartment of our victim...Regina Baker....I was quiet....Monica looked at me..

"Tired bae?" she asked..

"I'm exhausted..."I said.

''We'll get what information we can get and we'll head home..I promise." she said and kissed me on the cheek..
We entered her apartment complex....

 It was a beautiful apartment...Very neat and well kept...

"This is a nice place..." said Monica, looking around...

I found a photo of our victim ,taken in a happier time...

She was in her panties, with a cut t-shirt...Sitting in one of her windows...In the summer time...

I read the back...

"To Bobby...Always keep me in your mind...Gina."

I showed the photo to Monica..

"Wonder who Bobby is? Boyfriend...Husband...??" asked Monica.

''She's not married...I didn't see a ring on the body...and look at this place...No sign of anybody else living here but her..." I said.

"Yeah you're right..." said Monica who rooted around in her drawers and then turned to me..

"I know who Bobby is..." she said and showed me a photograph of the two of them, taken this summer at Octopuss Gardens...

It was Detective Bobby Sykes...Her one time lover...before she met me..

I remembered Lt. Cotton telling me about two years ago...


"They have history..We had a series of home invasions in which the crew was out of characteristically violent...beating the victims nearly to death....and then they slipped and did beat someone to death....Those two were butting heads at first and then gradually decided to work together.."he said.

"I take it they cracked the case?" I said.
''Oh yeah, cracked the case...brought the whole crew down...It was brilliant the way they worked together..Reminded me of you two...They uh fell in love during the case...I saw it...I warned her....She is like a crazy little sister to me..I raised her from a pup...She was an over achieving little patrolman....I urged her to take the detectives exam...She aced it..Highest in her class and got promoted...I trained her myself..Waiting for the day when she transferred to homicide...When she did,I again trained her...Best homicide detective I've ever trained..bar none.." said Lt. Cotton proudly...


"So what happened between them?" I asked.
''For awhile...it was good between them...but then things went sour....For one thing..he had more than one girl...I don't know how your partner knew it..but she knew it and she got the truth out of him...They had the nerve to be engaged...Can you believe that? She caught him coming out of the girl's house...fixing his pants...She was hurt...real hurt and she kind of went into a shell after that..Threw herself into her work...She uh had a brief fling with an FBI agent...who it turned out was married...Then she kind of kept men at an arms length for a long time...Until you came along...You were the first man she was so excited about working with...I'm glad she trusts you....Probably cause you're not sleeping with her." he said and walked away as I continued to watch the interrogation.

I smiled when he said that...He had no idea at the time of course...but Monica and I were sleeping together and had been sleeping together since our first case.

 I smiled thinking about that..


Monica had read my thoughts-

"We were good...Bobby and Me...but not as good as you and me.." she said.  He and I argued.. a lot...We sometimes got in each other's way... Me and You...We've always run like a smooth machine...We ..We are just different...You're the best partner I've ever had." she said as she continued to look around the room...

"You're the best partner I've ever had too!" I said...
"Aweeeee bae...." she said... "You so sleepy...Come on...Let's get out of here...I'm a little sleepy too..." she said.
"I guess we gotta go and find Bobby Sykes tomorrow huh? Or uh you have to find him." I said.

"WE have to find him....You and me...We are partners..." she said.

IV-
We got a call from Monique ,just as we were leaving our victim's apartment...We decided to stop by the Morgue....Besides...Monique would be needing a ride home anyway....

Monique, like us hadn't undressed yet.....

She looked at us as we walked in...

"Wow...you guys look exhausted...I must look the same too." she said.

''We are sleeping in late tomorrow ." I said.

Monica said to Monique...

"Guess what Sis? Our victim appears to be the girlfriend of Detective Bobby Sykes...see this photo..read the back and then look at this one.." said Monica.

"To Bobby...Always keep me in your mind...Gina."

 "Yeah...that's what I wanted to tell you Sis... Despite the fact she was in the water..She was wrapped up pretty well in that plastic tarp...we got a lot of DNA evidence..For instance..She had sexual intercourse before she died...We recovered semen in her body...a lot of it...I ran the DNA through our VICAP system,and through Interpol...Nothing...Then ,just for the heck of it...I ran it through our police identification system and I got a hit!! Detective Bobby Sykes...He had sex with her at least six or seven hours before she died." said Monique.

"This makes the second time he's been a person of interest in one of our murder cases.." I said.

"Yeah....How about that?...Though I honestly can't see him as a murderer....He may be a player...but he's good police..."said Monica...
"Yeah ,well there is another uh little problem..." said Monique...

"What is that?" I said.

"I knew you guys would be too tired to go back out to Zig's place ,so I face timed Zig and showed him Bobby Syke's photo...." said Monique...

"Yeah?"asked Monica.

"He says THIS IS NOT THE GUY WHO WAS IN THE BAR WITH HER LAST NIGHT!" said Monique.

Now we had a real mystery I thought!
