Left Hand, Third Finger


PHILADELPHIA, 2042-


Another day in the squadroom....I came in with Doughnuts , I am of course erstwhile Homicide Detective Nate Nellis...

 I planted a wet, sloppy kiss on my wife and partner, Detective Monica Nellis's lips..and passed her one of the hot, just out of the oven Doughnuts from Momma Lottie's Bakery...

"Ummmmmmmmmm thank you partner....I don't know what's sweeter, that kiss or these good doughnuts..."said Monica..

"Ohhh stop it you two....I think I liked it better when you two were on the low and we had to guess whether you two were an item or not..."joked Detective Kylie White...

Monica stuck her tongue out..

"Hater...Stop drinkin all that haterade.." she laughed...

''Besides...I bought you some doughnuts too Kylie." I said...

''Ouuuuuuuuu weeeeeeeeeeee...I love this guy...Our Junior detective.." she joked...

They both had been in Homicide a little longer than me and Monica was still my training detective...but I had more than pulled my weight..

"So...Nothing up ladies..?" I asked..

''We are clear...Perfect clearence..." said Monica ,sticking her tongue out at  Kylie.....

"I'm clear too...No open cases..." said Kylie..

''Good, then is all your filing up to date?" came the voice of Lt. Cotton...

''Lou! You're back!" I said..  He had been in Paris, for the past month..on his honeymoon...He had married my sister in law, Dr. Monique Talbert...Monica's identical twin and forensic investigator and coroner....

''I guess I can call you brother in law now!" said Monica smiling..

"It's still Lieutenant , while we are here...But Hell yeah...It's Brother in law and neighbor....I live below you guys now or will be in a few days...When I move my stuff in and put my place up for rent.." he said..

"Can I hug you?" she asked...

"Of course....You've always been my little sis...even before I met your sister.." he laughed...

''Awwwwwwwwwwwww.."said Monica...
''So how about those files?"he jokingly asked...

"The three of us have nothing but closed cases and all of our files and reports are up to date.." I said..

''We've minded the shop pretty well in your absence sir..." said Kylie..'' Well at least I have...I don't know about these two." joked Kylie..

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuu, she's such a hater.." joked Monica..  "I'm surprised my sister hasn't called me...How long you guys been back?" asked Monica..

"Ohhhhh about a day!  We were over Frankie's house ,sorting out his things...andddddddddddd each other." purred Monique, who walked out of his office, just blushing...

"Heyyyyyyyyyyyy Sis." I said....

"Heyyyyyyyyyyy Nate!" said Monique, who hugged me and squeezed me and kissed me on the cheek...Her body,like her sister's was so round, so soft and like her sister, she smelled so good...

"Hi babyyyyyyyyyyyy!"

She grabbed Monica and kissed her and hugged her too..

"Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy sis...You're a married lady now!~" said Monica...

''We IS MARRIED LADIES NOW!" said Monique ,showing her wedding band...and holding Monica's ring finger..

"Yes We Is Sis....The Talbert Twins are off the market!" laughed Monica...

"Uh Talbert twin....Your phone is ringing.."laughed Kylie..."Hi Monique.." she said..

"Hi Kylie.." laughed Monique...

II-
''Detective Monica Nellis...Yes...Uh Huh...Where? Me and my partner will be right there." she said.

''Partner, we got a case..."said Monica..

''You're kidding?" I said.

"Nope" she said.
"Wow...and things had been quiet and dull around here for a few days..."said Kylie..

''Let me grab my gloves and my medical box..."said Monique..

"Aren't you still on Vacation?" I asked..

"Technically I come back tomorrow, but since I'm here...I might as well go on this ride with you guys.." said Monique...

''How bout you Lieutenant?" asked Monica.

"Uh Uh...I'm out until tomorrow...Don't keep my girl out too late..." he said smiling...

Monica, Kylie,Monique and I headed to the crime scene...

III-
Our crime scene was at a street car stop.....

The victim was found in the very last car, sitting upright....and staring lifelessly forward...The way she was sitting there looked eerie...

It was a white female, late twenties...White mini skirt that was now crimson red...a pool of blood was at the seat...

"Ummmmmmmmmm...look at this..."I said..

Monica put on her latex gloves and approached the body....

"No signs of trauma...No broken bones...but all this blood.." she said...

Monique observed the body..

"Oh my god...Look!" she said..

"Her third finger is missing from her left hand...OH MY GOD!!!" I said..

''Ewwwwwwwwwwww.." said Kylie..

"Okay, but that's not the cause of death...I mean she bled out, but not that much....There is no bullet wounds...She wasn't strangled..No broken bones..." said Monica, baffled..

"We have to take her to the morgue...I have to do an autopsy...Anybody see the finger?" she asked..
I used my cyber eye which allowed me to see far more acutely than most people and scanned the entire trolley car, but there was no sign of it...

"No sign of the finger....You know...The left hand, third finger...That's the finger engagement and wedding bands are on...Maybe this woman was married or engaged..."I said..

''Maybe our killer wanted to hide that fact..." said Monica..

"Let's get the body out of here..." said Monique..

The body was bagged and toted out on a stretcher...A crowd of people gathered around....

I stared at the area....

"There are cameras on this train....Our killer and victim had to be photographed, videoed..."I said.

"I just checked...The cameras on this car have been disabled.." said Kylie....

''Well the station cameras have not, nor the street cameras in the immediate area..." said Monica...

"We are going to have to put a team on all of the stations and the streets around them..." I said..

"Yeah..." said Monica..

Monique pulled her sister to the side...

"Mo-Mo..."she said.

''Yes honey?" she said.

''When you first got married....Did uh, did you and Nate have so much sex, that you were just glad to get back to work?" she asked..

"Oh God yes!!!...That's perfectly normal....It will taper off..." said Monica..

"I mean it's good...It's great sex...but that's all Frankie wants to do...We haven't gotten a thing packed at his place...He never gets enough..." said Monique..."I needed a break..whooooo...A girl can only have so many orgasms!" she said.

"Awwwww, that's so cute....You're newlyweds..That's normal.." said Monica....

"Nate still doesn't jump your bones every chance he gets?" asked Monique...

"Oh of course he does...but it's more normal now..There are nights when we are both exhausted and just fall sleep in each others arms....We give each other rain checks.." said Monica...

"Good to know." said Monique,laughing....

"The Body's on it's way to the Morgue, Nothin left to do here..." said Kylie..

"I'll get on it, first thing in the morning." said Monique...''Oh that's my phone...It's a text...It's from Frankie." she said..


"Ouuuuu, hubby wants some Freaky Sneaky!" said Monica...

I kissed Monica's neck...

"How did you know?" I joked..

"Oh Hush up smarty!" laughed Monica..

IV-
It was night when the three of us arrived home...
We stopped down in Monique's domicile only to see....

Lt. Cotton...He had moved all of his things in, hung up all of his clothes....Arranged his furniture and mopped the kitchen floor and vaccumed , washed and dried the dishes and made the beds...

"WOW! The place looks great!" said Monica..

"I'll say " I said.

"Oh My God Frankie!!!" said Monique...smiling and putting her hands to her mouth in astonishment...

"I could have gone to that crime scene with you all, but we hadn't done any packing...or any work period...So I packed all of my stuff and got it over here and I've been working the entire time you guys have been away...By the way,...What kind of case did you guys pick up?" he asked..

"Oh our usual...Woman found dead on the back of Street Car, the third finger on her left hand cut off...no other visible sign of trauma...No cause of death determined yet." said Monica matter of factly...

''Yeah,our usual run of the mill murder case..."I said.

"You mean the strange kind right?" he said laughing...

"Frankie, I could just kiss you..." said Monique...

"Sugar Baby, and I'm going to hate myself for saying this...but how bout tonight...We uh just cuddle, you know, relax...We uh have been uh ruh going at it hot and heavy now practically every night since we got married..I don't know about you, but I'm exhausted..." he said.

"Rain check?  I'm fine with that.." said Monique...

Monica smiled at her sister..

"See, I told you these things work themselves out ." she said.. "Come on honey bunny,let's go upstairs and leave the newlyweds to themselves." she said...

"Good Idea." I said, smiling...''Welcome to the Duplex." I said,..

"Thanks ,now find that girl's finger!" joked Lt. Cotton...

"Ewwww, hush up Frankie.." said Monique....

This was going to turn out to be one of our more off the wall cases...The Kind me and Mo-Mo liked the best.

TO BE CONTINUED!
