One of The Very Best

Olivia looked at the young man sitting in her conference room and smiled...He smiled at her...

"Mr. Jones...I am so glad we could work this out without going to court..." she said.

"Me too." he said..

"My client agrees to refund you all of the money she took from you and you in turn per your written agreement ,will not file any charges against her.." said Olivia..

"That's right. " he said.

Olivia then looked at her client..A very attractive and shapely young woman named Yvonne Hawkins, who went in her purse and peeled off ten fifties....$500.00 ,to be exact and passed it the man...

Olivia's niece , Attorney Beverly West cleared her throat... The young woman wrote them a check...Their fee for bailing her out of jail and representing her in this matter..

"This check won't bounce will it?" Beverly asked the young woman..

"Come on..Of course not." she said.

Beverly gave her the side eye...

Olivia and the young man shook hands and she shook hands with his Attorney, Arthur Trout...

''Wow Livy, this is like three times we've faced off against each other and all three times we were able to work things out amicably without having to go to trial...I like it." he said.

"Me too... I'm not really in a mood for a court trial right now..I relish the easy ones like this." she said.

"This case was like something we had , when we were Public Defenders." laughed Beverly...

"Yeah.."said Arthur Trout...

As he and his client walked out....His client looked at the young woman and snarled..

"I never want to see you again....You snake." he said.

The young woman shrugged...

"Whatever man."

"You shouldn't be so cavalier about this Yvonne." I said..

I am Donnie Ray Alexander..Investigator for Olivia Bennett-Alexander and Beverly West- Attorneys at Law...I'm also Olivia's husband...

The young woman they were defending apparently was a waitress at Mabel Jenkins's Come and Dine Soul Food Bistro, where I often dined to get a taste of good Louisiana and Southern Cuisine...She and the young man met while she was working there...The man usually left her a big hefty tip....

They talked often, they agreed to meet at a Hotel sometime later..After a night of passionate and sweaty lovemaking...The man woke up to an empty bed and an empty wallet...


He had her arrested....Charged with theft and Soliciting...

I knew the girl...I often talked to her and was waited on by her ,when me and my musician friends stopped by Mabel's for a meal in between recording sessions or on our way to Josie's for a gig...Yeah..I play Trumpet on the side ,when I'm not a full time investigator for Liv and Bev... I liked her...She was flirtatious, but far from a prostitute...


When she got arrested...I called Olivia and Bev and asked them to represent her...Then I found out that the young man had gotten an attorney, Arthur Trout and was planning to sue her...

 ''Donnie Ray...If I didn't love you dearly...I wouldn't  have taken this case....That girl rolled that man and you and I know it.."said Olivia..
"She's a garden tool Donnie Ray...A Hoe...but probably doesn't deserve to be sued.." said Beverly...

"I know...but she's young and dumb....Sending her to jail wouldn't necessarily help her." I said.

They got her probation....on a lesser charge, with no jail time...and they had her return the man's money and got a written agreement he wouldn't press any further charges...

As far as her job at Mabel's though..She was fired...Nothing we could do about that...

"You shouldn't be so cavalier about this Yvonne...Next time...This could really go bad for you.."I said.

She frowned...

"Yeah you're right...Thanks for gettin me off...." she said as she walked out of our office...

Josie, our Office Manager looked at her as she left...

"You know she's going to do this again don't you?" she said..

"Yeah....Sometimes a word to the wise is sufficient...And then....Some folks got to learn the hard way.. Thanks Liv, Bev..."I said.

 "It's okay...But you owe us big time Donnie Ray...Oh and I don't want her waiting on you anymore..She's too flirtatious..."joked Olivia..

"That won't be a problem...She got fired.....And besides...You're the only one I want to get fresh with.." I said.

"Ummmmmm..Maybe we can do something about that.." Olivia joked...

"Well you two will have the entire office to yourselves for a few hours.....Josie and I are going to lunch and then shopping."said Beverly...
"Josie ,Take the rest of the day off...We don't have anything on our docket.." said Olivia..

"Thanks....See ya Liv, Mr. A." said Josie , as she and Beverly left for lunch...

Once they were gone...I pulled Olivia to me...


"Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, and now Mrs. Alexander...I want to get fresh with you."I said ,smiling at her and kissing her passionately..

"Oh Mr. Alexander....I am appalled .."laughed Olivia..with a phony southern accent.
We kissed each other passionately.....

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu Mr. Alexander....I think I'm liking this.." said Olivia...

"I'm liking it too Mrs. A." I said in between wet sloppy kisses....



II-

Beverly and Josie were enjoying a nice lunch at a very tony restaurant called...Destros....

 "Josie girl..I used to walk by here when I was in Law school and later when I was clerking and just dream of the day when I was a big time Attorney and could afford to eat in here..."said Beverly...

''Wow...and look at you now."said Josie..

"When I was a Public Defender...I still didn't have enough money to eat here for real for real.....But for the brief time that I was dating Larry North...He brought me here twice...He was trying to make his case for why he should be my man..." she laughed..

"Nelson couldn't afford this then could he?" said Josie..

"Nahhhhhhhhhhhhh, he was in the same boat I was in...We worked for the city...We were young, just starting out...My Auntay couldn't afford to eat here until she went to work for the big law firm downtown...Jive Ass Elwood may have brought her here a time or two...He had money...."said Bev...

Just then, Beverly's cousin, Attorney Kayla Bennett spotted her and Josie and walked over..

"Heyyyyyyyyyyyyy Cuz, Josie...Fancy meeting you guys in here...Got room for a third?" she asked..

"Sure Kayla..Come on over.." said Beverly...

"Hi Kayla."said Josie...
"Is this you guy's first time here? The food is incredible.."said Kayla..

"Larry North brought me here a couple of years ago...Twice..."said Beverly...

"This is my first time" said Josie...

"Ryan brought me here two weeks ago...and like Bev ,I was brought here some years ago by a Judge I was clerking for.." said Kayla...

"Ouuuuuuu..Teachers Pet huh?" laughed Beverly...

"He was trying to get me drunk and get me in the bed...He failed on both counts..."said Kayla.." But I loved the food." she said.

"So what you doin Kayla? We just finished a lightweight case that didn't go to court....And when I say lightweight.. I mean lightweight.. like $500.00 dollars...Our fee was more than the money disputed.." said Beverly...

"You two heavy hitters got a case like that? That's like one of the cases you would have gotten in the Public Defenders office.." laughed Kayla..

"We defended some waitress who took one of her customers to a hotel and rolled him....Got him for $500.00...We got her probation with no jail time and in the get this.. Civil suit...we got his $500.00 returned with a promise of no future charges...Our fee was more than the money stolen." laughed Beverly..

"I've got a civil suit being filed against one of those Private Prisons for youth offenders...It's a dilly...And we may wind up going to court...So glad, I learned so much from you and cousin Liv about being a trial attorney.." said Kayla..

"If you go to court...Maybe Auntay and I will stop by and watch you at work..."said Beverly...

"I may need the services of your boyfriend.. Nelson...I hear he a genius at prepping witnesses..."said Kayla..

"You using Kevin as an investigator on this one?" asked Beverly...

''I wish I was... I have used him three times before...He is incredible.. I 'm using another guy...He's good, but he's fresh...He seems more interested in me than the case...Kevin was working on something else at the time.." said Kayla.

III-
And while they prepared to eat...

Olivia and I had moved into the kitchen, where we continued kissing...

"You are driving me crazy.." I said..

"Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm....That's a good thing.." said Olivia...

"Yes..."I said....I slowly opened her blouse....she was wearing a black and pink floral bra...She smiled shyly..

"You like?" she said.

"Yessssssssssssss..." I said smiling...

"Of course you do." she said smiling...


I turned her around and unzippered my trousers....I ran my hands up her black skirt and I slipped the black thong down she was wearing and continued squeezing her breasts gently and kissing her neck..



"Ummmmmm, this feels so good..."I moaned..

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu Donnie Ray...Yes it does...Yes it does....Oh my god.." she moaned..

"I can't keep my hands off of you."I moaned..

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuu...you're good and hard..." she said...

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..I am indeed!" I moaned..

I bent her over the small kitchen table and softly entered her...

"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.." I moaned..

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.." she softly moaned as I moved in and out of her...and softly ran my hands through her hair....

"Ummmmmm, this feels so good..."I moaned..
"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu Donnie Ray..ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu..ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my god.......Oh My Godddd!Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu....boy ,you are showing off!!" she moaned..
"Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmph" was all I could manage to muster...I was feeling so good.
 "Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu..You are sooooo badddd! Ouuuuuuuuu!" she softly moaned as I moved in and out of her...and softly ran my hands through her hair....
I had her bent her over the table and was stroking her from behind at this point, slowly...She was pounding her hands on the table...and turning her head from side to side..
"Ummmmmmmmmmmmmph.."I moaned..
"Oh my godddddddddd!...ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!" she squealed... An Hour passed by too quickly...

Olivia had this intense orgasm , right in front of me...Sweating and crying at the same time....

I came so hard...I almost lost my balance...

I zipped my trousers up and passed Olivia her thong,

which she slid back into and attempted to straighten her clothes and her hair..

"Ouuu..we are sooo bad for doing this...In the kitchen area at that.."she laughed..Straightening her skirt and her jacket...and her hair...And applying make up and lipstick..in the small mirror that was over the sink..

''Bad is sexy."I laughed..
"You've got me doing things I never did before..." she laughed and hugged me...

"Me too!" I said.

"Oh hush...I doubt that..." said Olivia...

Her phone was ringing....

"I can't believe this.. I thought we'd be interrupted when we were uh...being naughty..." she said..

''Small miracles." I mused..As she spoke in length on the phone...I fixed my trousers, my shirt and my tie and suit jacket...

"And just like that....The peace and quiet is over...We have a case..." she said.
"What kind of case?" I asked.

"The kind of case that will have us back in court..." said Olivia..
"Hmmmm.." I said...Who is it?" I asked.

"Someone that can pay us a lot of money for their freedom...Daniel Demming.....He's been arrested for first degree murder in Bayside Heights..." said Olivia...

"Bayside Heights?? The suburb? "I said...Bayside Heights was a suburb of Philadelphia...The last time I was there ,I had got into a rowdy dow with one of their policemen ,who had put a night stick upside my head...

It earned me a trip to the hospital for the night and one of the most lurid dreams I'd ever had...

"The same...He's been accused of murdering his wife, Judge Midge Demming...."said Olivia..

"Wow! You know her? I've heard of her vaugely...She's a Judge." I asked..

"That's right....One of the very best....Oh yes...When I was in Law school ,I clerked for her..She taught me a lot...And when I graduated from Law school and passed the bar...I interned with her before taking a job at the Public Defender's office...

When Beverly came through law school...She clerked for her too and just like me, when she graduated and passed the bar...both she and Kayla were her interns...We all loved her..She taught us so much about the law,and about being women...and having integrity."said Olivia..

"I see...One of the Very Best...You know the husband?" I asked.

"Oh yes...Daniel? The salt of the Earth! He allowed me, Bev and Kayla to come into his home and he treated us all like we were his daughters....He's an Attorney too...He's a top litigator for a powerful lobby in D.C....Back then he was working for a very big firm..He offered me a job at his firm a few years back, when I left my firm, but I told him I was forming my own law firm and he wished me luck....They both came to visit me the day I opened up this practice...

Well the day I made settlement on this building...That was before the office furniture arrived...Bev and Josie had been hired, but they weren't here....Bev hadn't even moved her stuff in yet...Yes. I know him and without even checking.. I know he didn't kill his wife.. He was about her the way you are about me..Couldn't keep his hands off of her..." said Olivia ,smiling..

"How do you know all of that?" I asked.

"Because she told me and I could see the way he looked at her sometimes...Like the way you look at me.." said Olivia, smiling..

I smiled and pulled her to me, kissing her passionately in the middle of the office floor.. When we heard the key in the lock..

It was Beverly and Kayla....Josie had gone home..

Beverly smiled....She went back to the kitchen and wet a paper towel.. She walked over to me and gingerly wiped Olivia's lipstick off my lapel..

"You gotta send this one to the dry cleaners anyway D.R. "she said and smiled at me sweetly...

"Look who we ran in to Auntay..." said Beverly pointing to Kayla..

"Cousin Liv." said Kayla, who hugged her...''And Uncle D.R." she said and hugged me too..

"Hey baby girl....How you been?" asked Olivia..

"I was telling Bev that I have a class action suit case brewing ....It's against one of those for Privately owned Prisons for Youth Offenders...and it looks like it's going to court..." said Kayla..

"Wow!  Good for you...I was going to say that if Bev and I weren't busy...We'd come and watch you work...but we have a case."said Olivia..

''We Do Auntay?" asked Beverly..
"Yeah and a bit of sad news too...Midge Demming is dead..She was murdered...and Danny has been  accused of it..We have to go see if we can get bail and get him out of jail..First thing in the morning.."said Olivia..

 "OH MY GOD! NOOOO! NO WAY HE DID THIS. HE WAS ABOUT HER THE WAY YOU ARE ABOUT AUNTAY DONNIE RAY, COULDN'T KEEP HIS HANDS OFF OF HER!" said Beverly...
"I clerked for her as a law student and interned for her after I passed the bar.. "OH MY GOD! NOOOO! NO WAY HE DID THIS. I LOVED THEM!!!"said Kayla..

"That is the consensus..." I said...

"Do you know about the funeral arrangements Auntay?" asked Beverly...

"No..I don't know anything yet....Danny was distraught...on the phone."said Olivia..

"Oh My God...When you find out...Let me know...I'm definitely going to her funeral..." said Kayla..

"So tell me..Did Nelson clerk for her too?" I asked.
It certainly looked like every attorney I was close to had...


"No...He went to law school in New York City...St. Johns....But I do believe he interned with her when he came back to Philly to live....I didn't know him then..but I recall him mentioning her to me once..."said Olivia..
"Wow..She taught me so much ..And not just about the law....but about being a responsible young lady..."said Beverly...

"Yeah,me too...Her and Danny treated me like I was their daughter...She was one of the very best!" said Kayla..

"They have any kids?" I asked.

"No...She had three miscarriages...and after that she didn't try anymore.." said Olivia..

"Did she know that Beverly is your niece and Kayla is your cousin?" I asked.

"Oh Yes..That's why she took them in...She was tough on me...but in the end..She really,really liked me and said I'd be a fine lawyer and she kept up with my progress...She showed up at several of my trials...Always had constructive criticism...and praise..When she found out I had a niece and a cousin coming through...She demanded that I bring them to her...And she loved them equally...She used to jokingly call us  Diana Ross and the Supremes." laughed Olivia.

"Yeah, she did...Auntay was Diana Ross and I was Mary Wilson, the sexy one...and Kayla was Florence.." laughed Beverly...

''She came to my first trials too." said Beverly.


"Yeah,I remember that..." laughed Kayla..

"Well I've got my work cut out for me...Since this is a recent case..I'll need to see the crime scene, possibly talk to the case detective and figure out a timeline and motive..."I said.

''Wow, listen at you...Feels like you're back on the force again doesn't it? Running a murder investigation doesn't it?" laughed Olivia.

"Yeah it does."I said smiling..

"Makes your blood boil huh?" asked Olivia..

"No, you make my blood boil baby!" I said..

"Oh My God...Come on Kayla...Let's go upstairs to my spot and leave these two alone to make a baby.."said Beverly...

Kayla cracked up....

"Stop it Beverly....See you Cousin Olivia, Uncle Donnie Ray...Don't mind her.." said Kayla, kissing us both and following Beverly upstairs with the bags she had from shopping..

"We don't...At least I don't.... See you Kayla." Laughed Olivia.

Olivia turned to me..."One of these days.. I'll have to explain to Kayla that you're her cousin...and not her Uncle." said Olivia, smiling..

"Ahhh let her call me what she wants.. It's cute.." I said.

 And at a Tony Loft downtown...a smartphone rings....A young man is getting out of the shower and wiping himself off..

''Awwww Who the hell is this? It's a blocked number." he muses..

"Hello."

"Hello Troy..Troy Lincoln?" says the voice... It was electronically scrambled, So he couldn't tell if it was a male or a female.

"Yeah? Who is this?" he answers...

"Who I am is not important...I just thought you'd like to know that your girlfriend...Judge Midge Demming is dead!"

"HUH? WHAT? WHO ARE YOU? WHO IS THIS?" he asked.

"Like I said...Not important...but you'll need to get out of there...And soon...Your little girlfriend won't be footing your bills any longer...Just giving you a heads up...bye now!" came the voice...

Troy Lincoln dropped the phone to the floor...He was stunned
