INTERNET APRIL 1, 2003
“Hi” my name is JACKIE; “I AM a single female in my early thirties”. “I am in the entertainment business and i love to travel”. “i am brown skin, average build and dresses out of this world”. “my aspiration and life is to live it to its fullness”. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Damn! it is a crying shame it has come to this, trying to find mr. right on the internet. i have had some very unsuccessful relationships in the past and it has made me somewhat leary to start another one. SO I’M HOPING TO GAIN SOME EMAIL PALS ON THE INTERNET. WHO KNOWS I just MIGHT MEET MR. RIGHT,
ring, ring, ring
“JACKIE” COOKIE CALLED OUT.
“YEAH WHO’S THIS COOKIE?” “WHAT TIME IS IT COOKIE?” JACKIE STATED RUDELY.
“ITS 6:00 JACKIE BUT”
“COOKIE WHAT DAY IS IT?” JACKIE STATED NOT REALLY PAYING ANY ATTENTION TO COOKIE.
“JACKIE IT’S SATURDAY” COOKIE STATED BEARLY
CLICK THE PHONE WENT DEAD. WHAT IN THE HELL IS HER PROBLEM CALLING ME THIS TIME IN THE MORNING. I KNOW SHE WANTS ME TO GO RUNNING WITH HER BUT I DON’T FEEL LIKE IT, BESIDES IT’S TO DAMN EARLY. I’VE TOLD COOKIE IF SHE WANTS ME TO GO RUNNING TO LET ME KNOW THE NIGHT BEFORE. DON’T EXPECT ME TO JUMP UP THIS EARLY WITHOUT ANY NOTICE. I KNOW SHE’S GOING TO BE MAD AT ME, BUT AT LEAST SHE’S GETTING THE message THIS TIME.
COOKIE AND I HAVE BEEN FRIENDS SINCE GRADE SCHOOL. WE’VE HAD OUR UPS AND DOWNS BUT WE’VE MANAGED TO STAY FRIENDS. COOKIE IS A TOUGH COOKIE WHO LOVES MONEY, SO THAT MAKES HER A HARD WORKER. SHE IS A VERY ATTRACTIVE WOMAN WHO TAKES CARE OF HERSELF. SHE PROBABLY HAS ENOUGH MONEY IN THE BANK TO RETIRE BUT SHE WOULDN’T, SHE’LL LET IT GROW AND GROW AND GROW. COOKIE EXERCISES REGULARLY AND EATS VERY HEALTHY. IT MAKES ME SICK, BUT SOMETIMES I WISH I HAD HER DEDICATION. SHE RARELY HAS A STEADY BOYFRIEND. AS SHE PUTS IT: SHE HAS FRIENDS, THEY’RE THERE WHEN SHE NEEDS THEM AND GONE WHEN SHE DONE.
I ON THE OTHER HAND, I PREFER A COMMITTED RELATIONSHIP OR NOTHING AT ALL. BUT SHE LIKES IT THAT WAY AND IT WORKS FOR HER.
“OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNING”, I CAN NOT HELP HAVING THIS SMILE ON MY FACE. I LOVE WAKING UP TO THE SUN SHINING THROUGH MY WINDOWS. NOW THAT I’M AWAKE I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE ENJOYED RUNNING WITH COOKIE THIS MORNING. DON’T GET ME WRONG I’M NOT OUT OF SHAPE I’M FIT, BUT JACKIE HAS IT GOING ON A LITTLE BIT MORE THEN ME. BELIEVE ME, I UNDERSTAND US WOMEN NEED TO KEEP IT TOGETHER. LET ME CALL COOKIE AND SEE WHAT SHE’S DOING.
“HELLO” COOKIE ANSERED SOFELY
“COOKIE IT’S JACKIE, SORRY ABOUT THIS MORNING. I’VE TOLD YOU TO CALL ME THE NIGHT BEFORE IF YOU WANT ME TO GO RUNNING WITH YOU. WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU”? YOU DON’T SOUND OK.
“DAME YOU JACKIE”! COOKIE YELLED WITH a LITTLE BIT OF STRENGTH IN HER voice.
“WHAT’S WRONG, YOU ONLY WANTED TO GO RUNNING”.
“YOU’RE ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT YOURSELF. IF I WASN’T FEELING SO BAD I WOULD HANG-UP ON YOUR ASS JUST LIKE YOU HUNG-UP ON ME”.
“I’M SORRY COOKIE WHAT’S GOING ON, I MADE A MISTAKE PLEASE FORGIVE ME”.
THERE WAS SILENCE.
SUDDENLY A SOFT VOICE ASKED. “DO YOU REMEMBER ROBERT JACKIE”?
“WHO’S ROBERT”? JACKIE STATED CONFUSED
“MY FRIEND, THE ONE I WAS CONSIDERING GETTING SERIOUS WITH.”
“YES, HE WAS KILLED LAST NIGHT AND THE POLICE DO NOT KNOW WHO DID IT OR WHY”.
“KILLED! AS IN, HE’S DEAD” JACKIE WAS TOTALLY CONFUSED NOW.
“YES HE’S DEAD. THE POLICE FOUND HIM SHOT IN HIS APARTMENT AROUND 10: OO LAST NIGHT”.
“COOKIE OH MY GOD ARE YOU SURE? HOW DID YOU FIND OUT”?
“JACKIE I CALLED OVER TO HIS APARTMENT AROUND 1:00 THIS MORNING BECAUSE I WANTED TO PAY HIM A VISIT. WHEN A DETECTIVE ANSWERED THE PHONE AND TOLD ME THAT HIS PLACE WAS A CRIME SCENE AND THAT HE WAS KILLED LATE LAST NIGHT. HE ASKED ME FOR MY NAME AND PHONE NUMBER”.
“COOKIE DID YOU GIVE IT TO HIM?” JACKIE ASKED WORRIED”.
“YES! I HAD TO I COULDN’T LIE. THE POLICE ARE GOING TO FIND OUT ABOUT ME ANYWAY”
“I’M SORRY, I KNOW. COOKIE WHAT KIND OF LAWYER WAS HE”?
“HE WAS A CRIMINAL LAWYER”
“COOKIE CRIMINAL LAWYERS ALWAYS GET BUMPED OFF. ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE DEALING WITH THE WRONG KIND OF CRIMINALS. COOKIE YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL AND ACT LIKE YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING IF STRANGERS COME ASKING YOU QUESTIONS”.
“JACKIE! I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING, I REALLY FEEL BAD, I WAS IN LOVE WITH HIM, JUST MY LUCK. CAN YOU COME OVER? I REALLY NEED SOME COMPANY”.
WHEN I GOT TO COOKIE’S APARTMENT I USED MY KEY, WE ALWAYS HELD KEYS TO EACH OTHER PLACE IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY I DIDN’T WANT HER TO GET UP. COOKIE WAS REALLY HURTING AND I FELT HER PAIN. BUT I’M SURPRISED SHE DIDN’T TELL ME MORE ABOUT THIS ROBERT GUY NORMALLY WE KEEP EACH OTHER ABREAST ABOUT OUR NEW LOVES. AS I ENTER THE LIVING ROOM I HEARD HER CRYING A LITTLE BUT I DID NOT SEE HER.
“I’M RIGHT HERE”
SHE WAS ON THE FLOOR, CROUCHED DOWN BY HER COUCH. THERE WERE TISSUES EVERYWHERE.
“WHY ARE YOU DOWN HERE”?
“I DON’T KNOW. I FELL TO THE FLOOR WITH THE PHONE AFTER HEARING THE NEWS. THE ONLY OTHER MOVEMENTS I MADE WAS REACHING TO GET THE TISSUE BOX TO BLOW MY NOSE AND CALLING YOU”. SHE SAID IN A LOW VOICE.
I’VE NEVER SEEN COOKIE IN THIS SHAPE BEFORE, SHE WAS ALWAYS THE STRONG ONE BETWEEN US. I ALMOST DIDN’T KNOW HOW TOO REACT. SO I THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT COOKIE WOULD DO, IF I WERE THE ONE IN THIS SITUATION AND HOW SHE WOULD HANDLE IT. SHE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE FOR ME AND HELPED ME THOUGH SOME PRETTY TOUGH SITUATIONS AND NOW IT WAS MY TURN TO BE HERE FOR HER.
“LOOK AT ME”
“YOU’RE GOING TO BE ALRIGHT”
“NO! BUT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND JACKIE WE WERE TALKING MARRIAGE”.
“MARRIAGE!” THIS WAS REALLY SERIOUS. COME ON LET ME HELP YOU INTO THE SHOWER MAYBE YOU’LL FEEL A LITTLE BETTER AFTERWARDS.
WHILE COOKIE WAS IN THE SHOWER I HAD TIME TO THINK ABOUT ALL THE QUESTIONS I WANTED TO ASK HER. LIKE WHY WAS ROBERT SUCH A SECRET? HOW LONG WERE THEY DATING? WHEN AND WHERE IN THE HELL DID THEY MEET? I WAS STARTING TO GO CRAZY WITH QUESTIONS.
“HELLO! ARE YOU THERE? I’M BACK AND DRESSED. DO I LOOK BETTER?”
“NO”! I ANSWERED EAGER TO RECEIVE all my ANSWERS
COOKIE SAT IN HER ROCKING CHAIR SHE REALLY LOOKED BAD AND SPACED OUT. I WAS STARTING TO FEEL SORRY FOR HER.
“SO COOKIE TELL ME WHAT WAS GOING ON, I FEEL SOMEWHAT IN THE DARK” WITH A PUZZLE LOOK ON MY FACE.
“WHILE I MET ROBERT TWO YEARS AGO ON A BUSINESS TRIP TO NEW YORK. HE WAS ON BUSINESS ALSO AND WE STAYED AT THE SAME HOTEL”.
COOKIE IS A WELL-PAID REPORTER FOR THE LOCAL NEWS PAPER. SHE IS ALWAYS ON THE GO.
“WE EXCHANGED NUMBERS AND STARTED CALLING EACH OTHER AT THE TIME HE WAS LIVING IN CHICAGO. WE WOULD TALK ON THE PHONE FOR HOURS WHEN HE TOLD ME HE WAS TRANSFERRING TO A LAW firm OUT HERE I WAS SO HAPPY. HE MOVED HERE AFTER SIX MONTHS OF LONG HEATED TELEPHONE CONVERSATIONS”.
I WANTED TO INTERRUPT BUT SHE FELT LIKE TALKING SO I LET HER.
“WHEN HE MOVED HERE I WAS SO WRAPPED UP INTO HIM, I DID NOT PURPOSELY LEAVE YOU OUT, BUT I GUESS I DID, I’M SORRY.
“IT’S OK COOKIE. SO WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?
WELL THE FIRST THREE MONTHS WE WERE INSEPARABLE, BUT ALL OF A SUDDEN HE GOT THIS BIG CASE AND WE SAW LESS OF EACH OTHER. HE TRIED TO TELL ME NOT TO WORRY. HE STATED SOON AS THE CASE WAS OVER HE HAD SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO TALK ME ABOUT”.
“MARRIAGE” JACKIE INTERRUPTED.
“I ASSUMED SO” COOKIE REPLIED.
“SO WHAT WAS HIS BIG CASE ABOUT?” I WANTED TO KNOW.
“HE COULDN’T TELL ME” COOKIE HAD THIS CURIOUS LOOK ON HER FACE.
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN HE COULDN’T TELL YOU”?
“WELL HE SAID THE CASE DEALT WITH SOME HIGH LEVEL CRIMINALS AND FOR MY SAFETY IT WAS BEST I DID NOT KNOW ANYTHING”.
“OH THAT’S REALLY SCARY COOKIE SUPPOSE THOSE PEOPLE ARE THE ONES WHO KILLED HIM”!
“I DON’T KNOW BUT I’M TRYING NOT TO THINK ABOUT IT, I JUST WANT THEM CAUGHT AND PUT IN JAIL. JACKIE CAN YOU STAY OVER TONIGHT I REALLY WOULD LIKE THE COMPANY”.
“COOKIE I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU EVEN ASKED THAT QUESTION I WOULDN’T LEAVE YOU LIKE THIS ever”.
“THANK YOU JACKIE I’M GLAD YOU’RE HERE”,
“THAT’S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR, NOW TRY AND GET SOME SLEEP”.
WHILE COOKIE WAS GETTING SOME WELL NEED REST I WAS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HER STORY AND STARTED HOPING THAT THIS ROBERT LAWYER STAYED AWAY FROM COOKIE BEFORE THOSE CRIMINALS GOT TO SEE WHO SHE WAS. THESE TYPES OF BAD GUYS LIKE TO SEARCH OUT THOSE CLOSE TO YOU. WELL LET’S HOPE THAT THE BAD GUYS ARE FOUND AND PUT IN JAIL BEFORE ANYONE ELSE GETS KILLED. I’M HUNGRY AND I KNOW COOKIE’S PROBABLY STARVING LET ME FIND SOMETHING TO FIX US, SO SHE AND I CAN EAT WHEN SHE WAKES UP
LET ME CHECK AND SEE IF I HAVE ANY EMAIL MESSAGES. IT’S BEEN TWO WEEKS NOW AND I REALLY NEED A BREAK. COOKIE IS REALLY WEARING ME OUT SHE IS JUST NOT LIKE HERSELF. I’VE NEVER SEEN HER LIKE THIS BEFORE. SHE IS REALLY HURTING AND I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO TO HELP HER. SHE JUST MIGHT NEED TO SEE A PSYCHIATRIST. SHE SEEMS SO LIFELESS. SHE HAS NOT RAN OR BEEN TO THE GYM AT ALL. SHE’S NOT DOING OR GOING ANYWHERE AND WHEN SHE TOLD ME THERE WAS ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO KILL ANOTHER LAWYER at ROBERT’S FIRM, I BECAME EVEN MORE CONCERNED. I JUST HAVE TO GO HOME FOR A MINUTE, I HAVE NOT BEEN HOME AND DAYS. I’LL STOP BY HER PLACE LATER.
THERE IS ONLY ONE EMAIL IN MY LOVERS EXPRESS BOX. WHERE IN THE HELL ARE ALL THE MEN IN THIS WORLD.
WELL HELLO LADY, MY NAME IS JEFF I’M NEW IN TOWN, I’M LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO SHOW ME AROUND AND I KNOW YOU ARE THE ONE WHO CAN DO THAT. EMAIL ME BACK AND LET ME KNOW WHEN WE CAN GET TOGETHER I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU.
THE NERVE I RECEIVED ONLY ONE EMAIL AND IT’S FROM AN ARROGANT RAT. HOW DO HE KNOW I AM THE ONE SO SINCE HE THINKS SO, I AM NOT THE ONE AND I WON’T BE EMAILING HIM BACK?
MY APARTMENT LOOKS A MESS. I’ve been spending so much time over cookie’s place i have totally neglected my place. i have dishes piled up in the sink, dirty clothes all over the floor and to top it off my room is a disaster. i really need to clean up my place before i do anything else or i will go crazy. cookie should understand.
ring, ring, ring
“where are you”
“i am sleep. i must have dosed off” “what time is it?”
“its 8:00 you are suppose to be here. i told you the cop is suppose to be here around 9:00. get over here now.”
as soon as i pulled up in front of cookies place a police car had just finished parking his car and he looks as though he is looking for something.
as i went to put my key in the door the cop started to address me.
“would your name happen to be Cookie by any chance?” “I’m trying to locate her and I’ve missed placed her apartment number.
“are you from around here?”
“no i am not”
“i figured that much. No my name is not cookie but your pretty close I’m her friend jackie. i just happen to be going to same place YOU’RE trying to find. are you the cop she’s expecting?”
“who in the hell is she”? he thought I’m tHE ONE WHO SHOULD BE ASKING ALL THE QUESTIONS NOT HER.
YES, HE STATES KNOWING HE IS NOT THE COP SHE THINKS HE IS. jACK IS A COP FROM OUT OF TOWN HE IS TRYING TO FIND OUT WHAT HE CAN ABOUT ROBERT’S MURDER, BUT HE HAS TO DO THIS UNDERCOVER.
AS COOKIE OPEN THE DOOR JACK WAS VERY NERVOUS HE DID NOT KNOW what TO EXPECT.
“jACKIE” “jACKIE” COOKIE YELLED OUT.
BUT SHE GOT KNOW ANSWER.
WHERE IS SHE! SHE JUST CALLED ME
HEY GIRL JUST HAD TO JUMP INTO THE SHOWER, WHO IS THIS
COOKIE THIS THE COP THAT YOU HAVE BEEN EXPECTING

OFFICEr JACK I DO NOT MEAN ANY HARM, BUT YOU SHOULD KNOW MORE THAN ME, HIS LAW FIRM WAS ON THE CASE AND FROM WHAT I HAVE HEARD THAT SOMEONE HAS TRIED TO KILL ANOTHER LAWYER, NO ROBERT DID NOT MENTION ANYTHING PURPOSELY, BECAUSE HE DID NOT WANT ANYONE QUESTIONING ME SO IF YOU CAN PLEASE LEAVE

I DID NOT SEE HIM for About a WEEK AND A HALF, THAT WHY I WAS TRYING TO CALL HIM THAT NIGHT I WAS MISSING HIM. hell! i JUST WISH PEOPLE LEAVE ME the fuck ALONE. JACKIE I THINK I WANT TO BE ALONE TONIGHT, I’LL CALL YOU TOMORROW ok.
WHILE I WAS LEAVING COOKIE’S PLACE I COULD NOT STOP WONDERING IF COOKIE WAS ALREADY. ESPECIALLY WITH ALL THESE strange MEN COMING AROULD LEFT AND RIGHT ASKING HER a lot OF QUESTIONS AND SHE doesn’t KNOW ANYTHING I AM GOING HOME AND GOING TO SLEEP
i hate lying to jackie. she has been my friend since forever. but it’s for her own protection, if she really knew what i knew about the case, she would be really freaking out and obvious, its best i keep everything to myself at this time and pray the p0lice finds the killer or killers, until i can find someone i can trust with this information.
i remember that day like it was yesterday. robert came over unexpectedly. he was so shaking up. i had never seen him so UNEASE. the worry he had in his face, immediately had me concerned. i REMEMBER him wanting me to sit down.
“what im about to tell you is not easy”, he stated as his eyes started tearing. “This case has me all messed up, i thought by relocating here everything would die down, but it hasn’t. “here is a key to a safe deposit box at your bank. I havee put some very important information in there that PERTAINS to whats going on and what may happen to me. there are some people wanting to bring harm to me”.
“Robert, but why?” Cookie asked trying to hold back her tears
“i can’t be seen with you right now, Its much to DANGEROUS. If the people who are looking for me know you have any ties to me. they would take you and try to use you to get to me and i want have it. just know i love you and hopefully everything will work out. the safe deposit box, don’t open it until the january 15. I got to go.”
“SO WHAT ARE YOU DOING TONIGHT?” JACK STATED LOOKING RIGHT AT JACKIE.
“I AM GOING HOME AND DELETING MY LOVERS EXPRESS ACCOUNT OFF MY INTERNET”.
“DO YOU NEED MY HELP”? JACK ASKED.
“WHY NOT, I THINK I’M ALWAYS GOING TO NEED YOUR HELP, ALWAYS”. JACKIE STATED WITH A BIG SMILE ON HER FACE.
P.S. I ‘VE FOUND MR. RIGHT!!
