The Blue Light

"So where are we going today Kevin?" asked my wife Sepia as we drove through the city streets.

"To the Office Of Public Records.."I said..

"Public records? What's there?" asked Sepia..
"I want to make copies of the transfer of ownership forms on Branner's Construction company, Haney's chain of Hardware Stores and Culligan's House Painting Business..." I said.
''Why?"asked Sepia..

"Judging by how he tried to hard sell you and Bonita in signing with him....I'm betting that those three men, who from all accounts I and Sissy's detectives have gotten on them..Were not the type to scare easy....I'm betting they didn't go easy into the good night...No..I don't think they willingly signed those forms....I think they bucked just like we did and I think they got just what he had planned for us.Murdered.....Furthermore I think those signatures are forged and I plan to get proof of that..." I said.

"If you get proof what does that mean?" asked Sepia..

"That means he is no longer the legitimate owner of those businesses and you and Bonita's original signed agreement is legal and you can go ahead and option those housing units..."I said.

''Awwww you are just the sweetest mannnnnn."said Sepia...who gave me a soft kiss....

Kimmie laughed...

"Daddy is smart.." she said.

"Yes baby, Daddy is smart!" said Sepia.

II-
And in his office, Mike Traine Jr. was getting an ear full...

"NOOOO! I had nothing to do with the bust....I don't know how the Feds got upon them...We've been making drops without a problem..." he said..

"Well we definitely had a PROBLEM this time... That was millions....MILLIONS of Dollars  down the toilet..." came the voice..

"Look ,don't worry,I can make it back up....I have enough product to last until the end of next week..I'll charge our clients double, explain to them we've had a problem in producton flow...These problems happen all the time and the next drop, I'll pay the rest off.."said Mike Traine..

"There is not going to be a next drop...Not for you...There has been too much trouble and controversy surrounding you....Our little arrangement is over...I'll not waste another penny in Philadelphia...Not with you....You're too hot." came the voice..

"HOT?? I'm not hot...Look if I was hot...The cops would be at my door...They got nothin on me, not even a warrant....They don't know about Migos and the drone strikes...and I gave them the hitter I hired that killed the three businessmen..Gave em the murder weapon and all....They got closure on their triple...They're happy..." Mike Traine Jr. protested...

"Is this a clean phone?" asked the voice...

"Sure it is...I change phones everyday....I change the sim card..." he said.

"Sorry....I just can't be involved with you...Not right now...Our deal is done...Find yourself another supplier...I have too much at risk being involved with you." came the voice..
And in the sub-basement headquarters of Morris Investigations ,one of my investigators turned to Peeping Tom...

"We got it...His entire confession....On Video....His phone might have been clean, but his office isn't." laughed the man...

"His phone aint either...I pickpocketed that one and your boy over here cloned it...Fastest I ever seen.."said Lockpick Johnson.....

Peeping Tom smiled..

"Record and copy that.....I'll call Kevin..."he said.
III-

Inside Public records...I found and copied what I was looking for...
"Look at this signature and look at Brannon's.....This isn't even a good forgery....A real hack job...and look at the others and then look at these copies I have of the actual handwriting from the actual men themselves...These are frauds......He's a fraud.." I said.

"Time To call Sissy Huh? " said Sepia...


"Oh Yeah..." I said..



III-
At Brannon's construction site , I sat across the street in my car laughing...

Sissy walked over to the foreman...

"Where is your Site Manager?" she asked...

He shrugged his shoulders...

"It's Three of em...You're lucky...This is one of the few days they're all here...They work for this new owner...They don't know the first thing about this business.." he said..

"I'm not surprised..." said Sissy...

Carlotta took three uniformed policemen with her and nabbed the first one...

"Your business is terminated here...You're under arrest..." she said..

"You got a warrant?" he asked..

She smiled...

Tyriq grabbed the other one and tossed him up against the wall...
Jimmy searched him and handed him over to the officers...

Sissy handcuffed the third one and read him his rights....

She marched the three of them out off the site before they could make a phone call..
At the main Hardware Store...across town at that very moment..
Duke asked one of the employees where the boss was..

He pointed to the back...

The man in question had a sandwich in one hand and his hand up the skirt of a female employee..He had her blouse off and was moaning softly....

Angie attempted to walk to his office...

She was blocked by two goons...She smiled and spun one around, twisting his arm and kicking the other one in his groin, dropping him to the floor..She handcuffed the first man...Two uniformed officers walked by her...

Detective Sam Smith peered down at the man on the floor.

"Ouuuu that looked like that hurt fella.." he said..

Both men were handcuffed and three uniformed officers walked them out...
Duke snatched the boss out of his chair.....He looked at the girl...

"Put your clothes on....He's done for the day..." he said..

She put her panties on and strapped her bra and put on her blouse...and ran out of the office...

"Heyyyyyyyyyyyy what gives?" he snarled..

"You're under arrest....and your boss no longer owns this place.." said Duke...giving him the bum's rush..

"Heyyy let me at least put my pants on..." he snarled..

At the office of Culligan's House Painting ....A man sat in the main office with his feet on the desk...


He looked up and saw Sirena ,sitting on his desk...

"Hi....Working Hard?" she asked, Smiling sweetly....

"Who the Hell are you?" he asked..

"Detective Sirena Pile...The one who came to arrest you and before you ask...Yes..I have a warrant..." she said and produced it...

Two uniformed officers handcuffed him and read him his rights..

Outside...Her partner Hop and three uniformed officers had his two bodyguards on the floor and handcuffed...

And with that...The sweep was complete...Mike Traine Jr.'s control over these businesses was over...He had murdered the owners and took over the businesses by force...Now they were handed back to the families of the deceased men.
In New York....A man known only as Abe Stitch, an ex- Marine who had served two tours in Afghanistan and made some connections with the Opium Industry there prepared to get on the Roosevelt Island Ferry....

Stitch had high grade Heroin and Opiates coming from overseas and was selling it to "importers"in Philly, Atlanta, New Haven and Boston...He was the voice on the other end of the phone with Mike Traine...His connect...

Imagine his surprise..When Sharon and the Philly FBI and the New York FBI fell upon him
"End of the line Mr. Stitch..." she said..

He stomped his foot...

"I don't believe this...I'M BEING ARRESTED!!" he snarled...

The Swamp was drained..

IV-

I saved the best for last....


Kool Kat and I took the elevator up to Mike Traine Jr.'s penthouse....

Of course his big Hulking Body Guard attempted to stop us.....

Kool Kat put him through the door.....for his troubles.....

Before his other Lieutenant could pull out his gun...I put my glock on his neck..

"Just don't!!....Sit down...." I said.. He instead, turned and  ran for all he was worth.....

Mike Traine was furious...

"YOU GOT A LOT OF NERVE COMING UP HERE!!!  I WASN'T DONE WITH YOU..I STILL PLAN TO HAVE YOU WHACKED AT SOME DATE...AND THEN TO MOVE YOUR SEXY LITTLE WIFE IN MY PENTHOUSE..." he snarled..

"In your dreams......The cops just rousted all of your guys from all three of your businesses...I should say your former businesses...We have proof they were fraudulent...And right about now in New York...You boy, Mr. Stitch is being visited by the Feds...."I laughed..

He screamed..

"WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT?  It was you!!! All this time I thought I had a rat in my shop, You were feeding the cops and the Feds information..."He snarled.

"Yeah, I guess I'm guilty..You made the wrong enemy...Me!  I'm a Private Investigator...That's what I do...Just like your stupid father....I took it from him and now it gives me pleasure to take it from you.." I said..

"Case you wondering...The cops are on their way here now...We just came to send you our regards.."laughed Kool Kat...

"So this is goodbye Junior and I do mean goodbye.." I said and Kool Kat and I backed out ,guns still drawn and took the Elevator...
Within minutes...Lt. Sissy Van Buren and a squad of policemen were in the hallway...headed his way...
She had a murder warrant for him...Four counts of First Degree Murder!!!!

He pulled a loaded pistol out of the drawer...

"Nobody will have the pleasure of seeing me do a perp walk."  he said and put the pistol in his mouth and pulled the trigger...blowing his brains out...

In the end...The schoolyard bully took the cowards way out...

Kool Kat and I watched as the body of Mike Traine Jr. was wheeled out of his building...A crowd gathered around...
Hazel ushered the body into the waiting van.....She didn't want to deal with the Media or Lt. Tragg, who was furious he had been kept out of the loop on the case..

This explained why it was solved...

His short reign of terror was indeed over...

V-
Josie's was jumping as usual on Friday Night..Drinks were flowing and the place was packed...







What I called the Josie's All stars were performing tonight...Reed Nelson, Downtown Rob Brown, Bone Hampton, Dutch Van Buren, "88" and Chazz Gillison, backed by Symphony Sam and his jazz orchestra....

The crowd was digging the music and the smell of Fried Chicken and Fried Fish as well as Mac and Cheese ,Greens and  Candied Yams wafted over the rafters.....

Meek Rollins , Sepia and I and Kool Kat and Chelsea shared a booth...

"Chelsea  ,it's so nice that you and Walter came out TOGETHER tonight..." said Sepia jokingly...


''What are you talking about? We come out together....Just when you aint around Bad Girl..." joked Kool Kat....
"Not nearly enough Sepia Girl....but thank you for making him do the right thing..."laughed Chelsea...

"Sepia tells me you two are buying a house!" I said.

''Already in the works my man...and while we are at it.. I might as well tell you.." he said


and he showed us Chelsea's left hand...

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu girlllll, you two are engaged..." squealed Sepia..

"Yeah....I was beginning to think we was just gonna live across the street from each other and trade spending the night at each other's places forever..."joked Chelsea...
"Congratulations guys....Damn man , You aint even say nothing..." I said to Kool Kat...

"We been busy lately.....riddin the streets of Mike Traine Jr. or did you forget....?/" laughed Walter..

Meek Rollins was in a very good mood...

"Honey Bee...Some of your best Champaigne for our table and some more Chicken Wings and some hot sauce..." he said.

"You Buyin Meek?" asked Honey Brown....

"Of Course I am..." he said...

We all gave him the side eye....

"I'm Good For it." he said...

We all busted out laughing.....

EPILOUGE-

With Mike Traine Jr. dead and his organization behind bars or dead....Culligan's Business went to his Son and Brother...Haney's Business went to his Son in Law... and Mr. Branner's business went to his younger brother who honored the contract his late brother had signed with Sepia , Bonita, Clerow and Own Todd.

They indeed had the new Condos, Lofts and Apartments he was building filled with new tenants within a month... and sold Kool Kat and Chelsea a nice new home , a few blocks from us..
 
As the night lingered on , I leaned over and said to Sepia..

''Well it looks like everybody got their Happy Ending...Booming Businees for you,Bonita,Clerow and Owen...   A new House for Kool Kat and Chelsea...and Meek Rollins has turned that recording studio into a real Money Maker for me..."I said.
"Everybody got a happy ending except you Husband...And I'm going to rectify that.."said Sepia..

It was late...she led me to the back hallway near the restrooms....I've always wondered why it was so dark down this hallway...Just a Blue light...

I stared at her....

I kissed her passionately in the back hall by the Blue Light.....I ran my hands up her dress and rubbed her soft legs, She didn't even try to stop me....

A truly happy ending!


FOR SLC!
