A private investigator manipulates an innocent woman.

The Investigator

By Joseph Logsdon

Phyllis Harris was a very lonely woman. At first, Phyllis didn’t want to believe it, but, in the end, she had to accept the fact that her girlfriend was fucking another woman. Because of her Jealousy, Phyllis wanted to confront her cheating girlfriend. One dark night, Phyllis left her small apartment and contacted a private investigator. Tony Blake, unlike most investigators, was a dirty and sleazy man. Sure, he was good at his job, but he also hated women, especially attractive women.

The night was full of darkness as Phyllis walked into the small office. Though he would never admit it, Tony Blake wanted to fuck his new client. He was not an attractive man, but what he did have, was charisma.

“Mr. Blake, I must speak with you,” Phyllis begged.

“Honey, you look like you were hit by a car,” Tony joked as he lit his cigarette.

“This isn’t funny,” Phyllis replied.

“Of course it is, everything is funny to me,” Tony laughed.

“I need your help,” she cried.

“Of course you do, otherwise, you wouldn’t have come to me,” Tony stated.

“Mr. Blake, can I ask you a personal question?”

“Babe, everything that you ask me will be a personal question,” he laughed.

“Have you ever been in love?”

“If so, I was probably too drunk to remember,” Tony answered.

“Tell me, is everything a joke to you?”

“Sweetheart, life is a joke, you just can’t see it, but trust me, you will,” Tony laughed.

“People like you don’t know what it feels like to love someone. Well, I’ll tell you something, Gaby Nelson loved me, and I loved her. We wanted to get married, but that, sadly, did not happen. She, for some reason, grew distant. Gaby was, despite her drug addiction, a kind and giving person. I thought that, if given time, she would see that I was the only one for her, but, instead, she left and never returned.”

“Let me guess, you want me to find her, don’t you?”

“Bring her back,” she pleaded.

“What if she doesn’t want to go?”

“I only want to find her, nothing more,” she stated.

“This is going to cost you,” Tony laughed.

“How much?”

“How much are you willing to pay, and more importantly, how much are you willing to lose?”

“What do you mean?”

“I can’t promise that I will find her. If someone doesn’t want to be found, I assure you, they won’t be.”

“Believe me, I’m willing to pay you anything!”

“I don’t think you can afford me,” Tony laughed.


“Ms. Harris, don’t play dumb with me. If you want my help, I suggest you drop the innocent act and suck my dick,” Tony laughed.

“Mr. Blake, what kind of woman do you think I am?”

“Don’t worry, I just want to have some fun. I promise, if you do this, I will find your friend,” Tony stated.

“She wasn’t my friend, she was my girlfriend,” Phyllis exclaimed.

“Are you going to unzip my pants, or do I have to do it myself?”

“I hope my parents never find out about this,” she cried.

“Don’t worry, in a few minutes, you’ll forget about your girlfriend, about your parents, and, most importantly, your dignity,” Blake laughed.

That night, Phyllis made love to Tony Blake. The following morning, Phyllis sighed as her eyes opened. To her amazement, Gaby Nelson was standing in the room. At first, Phyllis thought she was having a vivid dream, but as sunlight invaded the room, she knew that reality had come to destroy her.

“Hello, Phyllis, how have you been?” Gaby asked as she paced the room.

“Gaby, what’s going on?”

“Don’t get too excited, you might get hurt,” Gaby laughed as she put her arms around Tony Blake.

“Babe, we did it,” Tony stated as he kissed Gaby.

“What’s going on?” Phyllis asked.

“So, Phyllis, how does it feel?” Gaby asked.

“What are you talking about?”

“Are you sad, that you’ve been humiliated?”

“Gaby, you’re scaring me,” Phyllis stuttered.

“I know, that’s the point,” she laughed.

“What do you mean?”

“Should we show it to her?” Gaby asked.

“If we didn’t, it wouldn’t be any fun,” Tony laughed as he pulled out a photograph.

Phyllis was shocked as the photograph revealed her dark secret. Tony was naked, and Phyllis, sadly, was naked.

“Gaby, why are you doing this to me?”

“Because, Phyllis, you need to understand that I never loved you,” she laughed.

“You’re lying!”

“Phyllis, for once in your life, don’t be an idiot. You’re right, we did have fun together, but that was never meant to be taken seriously. I loved your passion, your sense of danger, but I did not love you.”

“What are you going to do with that photograph?”

“I’m going to send it to your parents,” Tony laughed.

“My parents, why?”

“Because they need to know about their slutty daughter,” Gaby laughed.

“Are you even a private investigator?”

“Oh, I am, but I’m also incredibly devoted to Gaby. You see, we dated in college, and thankfully, we never forgot. A few days ago, she asked me to help her get revenge on an old friend. Naturally, being the helpful guy that I am, I couldn’t refuse.”

“Gaby, what did I do to deserve this?”

“Nothing,” Gaby laughed.

“Gaby, if you don’t mind, I’m going to see my next client,” Tony exclaimed.
