Friendly Skies

At Ocean Port State Prison...Home of Pennsylvania's Death Row , surrounded by water and inescapable, so they say....Lt. Cotton and five guards walked down death row and opened the cell of Chris Ventura...

He laughed loud as they walked him out...

Lieutenant Cotton took his prisoner and walked him to the booking room, where he was given a change of clothes and a packet with a Passport and Airline Tickets that allowed him to go where ever he chose....

Then the two of them entered a Transfer Ship that was going to take them back to Philadelphia..

Chris Ventura couldn't help but snicker the entire time...

"Hey Lieutenant...You might want to take these handcuffs off of me...I'm a free man now.." he laughed..

"You're a free man when we get to the Airport in Philadelphia...Until then,I feel safer with you in bracelets..."said Lieutenant Cotton...

"Aww cheer up, you can't win em all...Can I call you Frankie?" asked Chris Ventura..

"No!" said Lieutenant Cotton...

" We are just above your pay grade that's all...Your guys do well with city murders...You know, street crime....But man, I'm international in scope...You didn't really think you and your street cops were going to take me down did you?" he said,laughing..

"We took you down once.." he said, trying hard to conceal his anger..

"Yeah, you guys got lucky....Can't win em all....Hey within a few weeks...Somebody will kill a cabbie or knock off a jewelry store and kill the owner...and you guys will be back in the winner's circle.."he laughed..

This was going to be a long ride back to Philadelphia with this cocky, strutting bastard, he thought!

It was a little after 11:00 am...Chris Ventura had been released from Prison, Released from Death Row and given the passport and Airline tickets he asked for and an undisclosed amount of money just as his operative, Augustus Oman had demanded...

Once Chris was in the air, he said he would deactivate the drones
Hovering over our duplex , the Mayor of Philadelphia's house and the Governor of Pennsylvania's mansion...loaded with enough C4 to blow up an entire neighborhood....




II-





Monica and I and Kylie had gone home, Showered and changed clothes and had come back to the Squadroom..  I had stepped out to get coffee and doughnuts for them and make a few calls...I had an idea..A long shot...but one I had to play...What did we have to lose at this point?

 Monique was there also,sitting with us....

"Man, I can't believe this arrogant mope, Chris Ventura and his henchman, Augustus Oman have out smarted us....They won!  And to further humiliate us...They made Lou personally escort hm to the Airport with the Passport, Airline Tickets and money." scoffed Kylie..

"He's got those drones floating above our house and the houses of the Mayor and the Governor....With only his say so that he'll deactivate them....He could blow them all to kingdom come just on  a whim.." said Monica.

"It's 12:30....Frankie must have him out of jail and en route to the airport...Why are they still floating above our homes?" asked Monique...

"Because we are at his mercy and he wants us to know it..."said Monica...

"MAYBE NOT!" I said when I walked in....

"What are you talking about Nate?" asked Kylie..As I passed them each a hot steaming tumbler of coffee and a doughnut...

"I called the FAA while I was out getting coffee...They track all drone traffic and signals....I told them to call every known drone flyer and tell them to stand down...Now naturally..These bozos won't...but..that leaves their signal out there for us to track and circumvent...and maybe...Just maybe...We can get a location.."I said.

"OH MY GOD!!!!SEE? THIS IS WHY I WANTED YOU FOR MY PARTNER!" said Monica...her eyes lighting up and her face getting an almost heavenly smile..


She gave me a soft kiss.....

"Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I love you." she said...

"THAT'S NOT THE ONLY REASON!" said Monique and Kylie in unison....

"Oh hush up and get your mind out of the gutter....I didn't know about that until after we became partners." said Monica, blushing a little bit...

I pulled out the laptop the FAA guy loaned me...

"If I'm right....It's the only signal out there..It'll be easy to pick up..." I said as I began tracking it..


"Oh wow!  50 firewalls....to protect it..."I said..

"Can you knock em down?" asked Monica...
"Yupper.....Kylie...Go on our big computer....get in sync with this one.They didn't use the most complex firewalls."I said..

"Okay...but why?" she asked..

"Because they're going to figure out sooner or later that they are being tracked and they're going to Nuke the system...We have back up....They won't figure on two computers tracking their system...."I said.

"Got you.."said Kylie...

We traced them...knocking down 50 firewalls and jamming their signals...Then something wonderful happened....The drone hovering over the Governor's Mansion exploded in mid air..

So did the one hovering over City Hall..  The drones had a fail safe system...If someone jammed their signal or tried to track them ,they exploded to avoid detection...That was brilliant!!

The one near our house...wouldn't move at all...but we were on the signal....

"They know we are tracing them....They just hit a kill switch..They're sending a remote access tracker through the system...."I said...

"Wow, they wiped me out.." I said..

"Yeah...but I'm still on em and I blocked the one hovering over your house.." said Kylie..

The Drone hovering over our house suddenly exploded in mid air...

"OKAY KYLIE GET OUT NOW BEFORE THEY SEND A RAT THROUGH THE SYSTEM!" I said.

"I got an address...I know where they're broadcasting from.." said Kylie...

"Well let's not stand here!!!....Let's go get em.!!!!!" said Monica, who cocked her glock...

''Sis...Call your husband...Tell him to lock Chris Ventura up and take him back to prison.." said Monica.
"Frankie will be so happy..."laughed Monique...




III-
In a small Hotel room at the hotel in Aqua Port....

.Larry Ford and Milsap Caleb, Two ex-Special Forces men, Now Mercenaries working for Augustus Oman were baffled..

"Boss I don't understand it... All Three Drones exploded in mid air...We lost complete control of em..." said Larry Ford..

"WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT?" screamed Augustus Oman...

"Yeah....We were being tracked....we sent the remote access tracker through the system to Nuke their system and they still destroyed the third Drone.." said Milsap Caleb...

"WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT? HOW COULD THAT BE? HOW DID THEY EVEN FIND OUR SIGNAL?? WE HAD 50 Firewalls..." screamed Augustus Oman, now furious beyond measure..

"Somebody is really good...They knocked em down and jammed our signal and in doing so..our fail safe unit destroyed the Drones...Only problem, they were sitting in mid air..." said Larry Ford...


"Doesn't matter, Chris is already at the Airport by now...Let's get the hell out of here.."said Augustus Oman...

"TOO LATE FOR THAT!!!......It's Tank Time fellas! "I said with my glock drawn.....
"You boys are in a lot of trouble.." said Kylie..shaking her head with her glock drawn...

Augustus Oman looked like he'd swallowed a canary...

"WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTT? HOW DID YOU? HOW DID YOU FIND US?? HOW DID YOU FIND US??? NOBODY KNEW WE WERE HERE!!!!" He screamed and jumped up and down like a spoiled child...


Monica walked up to Augustus Oman...

"So at last we meet in person" she said and kneed him in his groin..

"OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU....Umm

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuu!" he moaned as he fell to his knees

Both Larry Ford and Milsap Caleb winced...

"Damnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn." they said and threw their hands up.....

 Several Swat team members came in with guns drawn....and stormed the complex!!!!!

I tossed the handcuffs to Kylie...

"This is your collar baby."I said. I deactivated their computers.....

Kylie handcuffed Augustus Oman and pulled him up by his collar...

"AUGUSTUS OMAN!!.YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT PLEASURE THIS GIVES ME" she said...


"HOW DID YOU FIND US? HOW DID YOU BLOCK OUR SIGNAL?? I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND!! HOW DID YOU DO IT??" he asked..

Monica handcuffed Larry Ford and Milsap Caleb and handed them over to the Swat men....
Augustus Oman was incredulous...still asking questions....

"I don't believe it...I can't believe this...How did you find us? How??"he muttered.

"If I tell you....I'll have to knee you in the groin again..." said Monica....

I busted out laughing....

"Get these drecks outta here.."I said...

As the officers dragged the trio out in handcuffs....Augustus Oman was still mumbling...

"I just don't understand this...How did they find us? How did they jam our system??  I don't believe it..I'm going to jail....I don't believe it!! I can't believe it!! I'm going to jail  .I don't believe it!! I can't believe it!!"he said, stomping his foot and having to be dragged out-

IV-
The Transport sub began turning around and heading back toward the prison....

Chris Ventura was getting antsy...

"What's going on??  Are we turning around or something? Hey look, take these cuffs off of me...That's an order...Those drones are still pointing at your homes and they will be until I'm in the air...If I'm not satisfied...Somebody will get it! Take these cuffs off of me...I said.." he said..."NOW!!! GET THESE CUFFS OFF!" he barked..

"SHUT UP CONVICT!" said Lt. Cotton...

''WHAT? WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TALKING TO?" he asked..

"In case you didn't notice....We are heading back to the Prison....You're going back to Death Row.....My detectives destroyed your drones and they have Augustus Oman, Milsap Caleb and Larry Ford in custody! Don't worry...They'll be joining you on Death Row soon enough...."said Lt. Cotton...

"WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT? Impossible, you're bluffing.....You Lie!!!...You aint gonna have no place to live tonight..." said Chris Ventura..who was surprised that Lt. Cotton knew the names of his associates...

"Tell it to the judge....Or in your case....THE WARDEN!" said a Jubilant Lt. Cotton as the Sub banked in the waters near the Prison...
and guards came to pick Chris Ventura up....They had a change of clothes...The white shirt and white trousers, white ankle socks and white skippers, that all condemned men wore...They made hm change right there on the docks in the rain....Then they fitted him in leg irons....

He broke into tears....."This can't be happening...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! 
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...I DON'T BELIEVE IT!!! THIS IS A TRICK!..A TRICK!" he screamed as the guards hauled him off and back to his cell on Death Row...
Lt. Cotton laughed...He thought about us...His detectives...

Monica
Me!
 and Kylie.....

He didn't know how we did it...but we had done it...brought the case in and averted a disaster of major proportions.....

He was going to see that these guys got the justice due them.....

EPILOUGE-
Christopher Ventura, Augustus Oman, Larry Ford and Milsap Caleb went on trial for eleven counts of first degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder , making terroristic threats over electronic lines and wire fraud...

They were convicted on all counts and all sentenced to die by Lethal Injection....  Chris Ventura now had a second death penalty on his record...

The four of them are on the same row at the Ocean Port State Prison...Surrounded by water...Locked in a cell the size of a bathroom ,22 hours a day, released for exercise and meals for two hours a day ,awaiting to be executed...

Larry Ford and Milsap Caleb offered to turn states evidence against both Ventura and Oman, but the DA would not make a deal...He sent them all to death row...Where they belong....

Bottles of Champaigne popped back at the precinct as we all celebrated our victory...

Lieutenant Cotton was ecstatic..
He poured a glass for each of us...

"Kylie...Way to bring in a case baby!" he said and hugged her...

"I couldn't have done this without Nate and Mo-Mo...and Nate..was the real hero of the day...finding a way to trace and jam their signal.."said Kylie..

"Nate...Brother in law..Glad to have you aboard...." he said..
I smiled as I drank....

''A toast to my wife...Who made me the Homicide Detective I am today.."I said laughing..
Monica hugged me...and gave me a slow ,sensuous kiss that made me blush....Those kisses were usually reserved for when we were alone in the bedroom, but tonight, she didn't care!


"And to my husband, who never gives up and who keeps me strong, when I'm weak..Who stands me up, when I'm about to fall down...I'm sooo glad we are partners.." she said...nearly in tears..

She kissed me again, passionately.....and wouldn't stop.....

''Awwwwww."said Monique..watching and tearing up a bit..
And to my Sister in law...Who has been like a crazy little sister to me ever since the day I met her when she was driving around in a patrol car asking me, bugging me  really ,about how to become a detective...What would I do without you? I knew then you'd be a great detective."he said and hugged Monica....

"And most of all...You introduced me to the love of my life...My wife, My Sugar Baby...Monique.."he said...

 ''Awww Frankie...You're the love of my life too." said Monique..who gave the lieutenant a wet,sloppy kiss.

It was a night for kissing and celebrating....
We downed three bottles of Champaigne that night...We deserved it...After what we had been through!
