The phone woke me up at 1:17 AM. Phone calls that time of night always sent a chill up my spine. They were never good news.
“Reverend Soto?” A female voice rattled over the other end of the line.
“This is Kay Long. I’m sorry to bother you, but I didn’t know who else to call.”
“Yes, Kay. How can I help?” I made sure to sound more awake than I was.
Kay prattled on, and I could hear the worry in her voice.
“It’s George. He’s gone off the wagon again. Down on Bourbon Street, and I can’t get him to come home. I’d go after him myself, but I can’t leave the twins, and I can’t put them in a stroller and go get him. Not down at the strip clubs.”
“True.” That wasn’t a practical solution. Mrs. Long had twins who were going on about six months old now. Her husband had been attending AA meetings at the church semi-regularly. He’d been trying.
Rain pinged steadily on the roof, and I really didn’t feel like getting out of bed and heading down to the French Quarter. “Don’t you think he’ll catch a cab when he’s ready to come home?”
“Maybe, but I’m afraid he’ll get locked up, like last time. And I can’t afford the bail money. Not with all these diapers and formula. Can you please help me?”
I held the phone out and sighed. “Want me to go looking for him?”
“I hate to ask, but yes. Unless you can think of another way to get him home without an incident.”
I couldn’t. “I’ll see what I can do. Do you recall the name of a few of his favorite places?”
“Maybe check the Booby Trap or the Leopard Lounge. George likes all those titty bars. I’m sorry Father. I can’t imagine that you’d know much about those type places.”
I smiled. Mrs. Long would be shocked to learn some of the things I knew about.
Excerpt 2 - Smart Baztard by Ines Johnson
Prince’s eyes glazed over the string of dental floss that most of the girls wore. Their swimwear was a sea of solid colors that had already been solved by many hands. Bored with the flesh on display, he looked down at the cube in his hands.
Prince had solved his first Rubix Cube at eight-years-old. At that young age, he’d known intuitively that if he repeated certain patterns he could solve each color, side by side. Twenty years later, his fingers worked the cube until he’d made a cross-pattern with the yellow blocks. Then he executed a sequence of turns to make L-shapes with those same blocks. A few more twists and turns and he’d have a solid yellow side. The simple algorithm was so ingrained in his mind that his fingers solved the problem without the aide of his eyes, allowing his gaze to once again take in the party around his next door neighbor’s pool.
His gaze fixed on a tasteful 1950’s style bikini that fully cupped a pair of generous breasts and completely covered a heart-shaped ass. It was the complex color pattern that caught his attention. A Rubix Cube has six faces. A bikini has three; four if you counted the back.
Fuck! He was looking at her ass. Prince turned back to the array of dental floss.
He could look at any ass, except hers. But the pattern on her bikini bottom stuck in his mind and he snuck another glance. On the fabric were blocks of the colors white, red, green, blue, orange, and yellow -just like a Rubix Cube. The yellow blocks would make a cross-pattern if she just turned to the right. Two twists to the left and the necessary L-shape would form. He worked out the pattern at the apex of her thighs. He knew the exact sequence to solve the triangular pattern on her left breast. He only needed to reverse it on the right breast.
When his gaze met round, pink lips that revealed pearly white teeth, he was stumped. He’d come to the end of the algorithm. He knew that returning Gabby’s smile would be a miscalculation and so he looked away.
