It was shortly after seven and Perry had just started playing a few minutes before. He played his Guitar at the Oasis Bar every Friday night, he got no pay. He just wanted to play his Guitar. Bob played mostly instrumental selections, quiet rhythms and some Spanish Guitar. When he saw her come in he sang the old Eric Clapton song 'Hey Girl'. She was with two other girls and a guy. She looked at Perry and knew he was singing to her. When he was finished Jan threw Perry a kiss and got a bright smile in return. She had never been in the Oasis before and heard Perry play and sing. One of her friends said that Perry had begun showing up on Friday nights about a month before. She said that Perry got a few free drinks but she thought that was all he got paid. She said Perry played until ten thirty and then put his instrument up and left.
Jan wanted to get to know that tall slender entertainer, she decided to ask him if he did requests. That might be a way to open a conversation. Perry was playing a sad Spanish number and watching her as Jan excused herself at the table. She promised her companions that she would be back soon.
Jan took her beer and walked toward Perry. She felt Perry's eyes examining her moves and her body as she approached him. She had nothing to be embarrassed about, her body was good and she had been told hundreds of times she was beautiful. Jan asked Perry if he liked what he saw. Perry said he did but would like to see more. Jan said "Not here". Perry asked if she would like to go to his place. Jan told Perry she might but would need to get to know him first. Perry told Jan it was time he took a break; there were a lot of empty tables toward the front of the place. Perry suggested they talk there. Jan knew her friends were watching her, she was the least wild of the lot. Jan sat facing those she had come in with. Perry said he owned his own business, he had a Security Service. Jan asked if Perry furnished night watchmen and guards. Perry said he did that and a lot of other things. Perry told Jan he owned his own home on four acres near the center of the city. He asked her to let him show it to her soon. He told Jan it was unusual but nice. Jan promised to see his home over the weekend. Perry and Jan talked for about ten more minutes. Perry excused himself to play again. Jan said she sang a bit and would do a number with him. She followed Perry to the small stage and sang sad country western songs with him for thirty more minutes. She was a hit!
Perry asked her if she would join him again the next night, the regular band was not going to be there and he had promised to play instead. Jan said she would love to. Perry put his Guitar in its case and left at ten thirty. Jan rejoined her friends and sipped one more beer and left. None of Jan's friends knew she could sing, Jan said " Hey I was singing all four years while in college and getting paid for it". Jan told them she had been a professional at one time. Jan told her friends she had to work the next day and was going home.
Jan owned a large Travel Agency and was well off. She had a pent house apartment in a high rise near the center of the city. She was the owner of the building.
After putting on a flannel night gown Jan went out on the landscaped terrace of her apartment and looked over the city. She wondered where Perry could own a house on four acres in the center of the city. To her east was a dense commercial section merging into sub grade housing. To her west was the commercial part of the city and merging into a large college, beyond that was moderate homes. To the north was a wasteland of old abandoned buildings, most dating back to before the depression of 1929. Most had caved in and none had roofs. The titles to that more than thirty square blocks of real-estate probably could never be straightened out. In 1912 the property had been granted a tax free status to encourage development and could not even be sold for non payment of advalorem taxes.
Jan could not imagine that Perry lived there, from her view there were not even street lights there. It was a huge blacked out section of the city. Most of the streets leading into the area were blocked off permantly.
At ten AM Jan got a call from Perry, he asked her to have lunch with him. Jan had eaten only toast and a glass of O.J. for breakfast and was feeling empty. Jan asked if they could meet at the City Club at noon.
Perry was being seated as Jan came in.
Jan spoke to several people she knew as she made her way to Perry's table. Jan gave a bright smile and joined Perry. The waiter offered her a menu, Jan asked if lamb was on the menu and when she was told it was she declined the bill of fare. Perry asked if lamb was good here and when Jan assured him it was the best in the city he asked her to order for them both.
Three men came in and were seated near them. Perry asked Jan to excuse him for a minute.
Jan heard the conversation, Perry walked over to the table and said " Mr. DeLoach you are, as of today, two months behind in your payment for my services". I expect to pick up a check at your office at no later than two thirty or you will be in danger. One of the men at the table stood up and asked DeLoach if he should usher the man out. Perry said " Your name is Baker is it not"? "Stand down I am your boss". The giant sat down. Perry asked if two thirty was understood. DeLoach nodded and Perry returned to the table with Jan.
Jan had overheard the conversation but did not say a word about it. She was suddenly aware that the musician was a tough individual and could be less than nice some times. During lunch they exchanged last names and addresses. Janet Richardson was having lunch with Perry Morgan.
Perry said the name Jan Richardson rang a bell. He asked if she was the Jan Richardson that owned Richardson Foundries and Richardson Steel Products. Jan said she was. Perry asked if her home address and apartment number were not of the pent house in the most exclusive apartments in the city. Jan smiled and replied " Guess so". Perry said " That must set you back a bundle". Jan replied " Not if you own the building". Perry laughed. Jan asked where his home was, she was not familiar with the address he had given her. Perry asked if she had time to see his home. He said he would have to be back in this area by two thirty. Jan told Perry she was having a Friday with little to do and could take time to see where he lived.
When the check for their meals came Perry signed his name and membership number. Jan knew from that he was a member, she did not tell him she was also. Perry's Ford Expedition was parked nearby.
Perry took a one way street headed to the north. Where it looked as if they must turn either left or right Perry dodged by a garbage dumpster and continued on through several blocks of abandoned buildings. None were even usable as shelter for the homeless. Perry was watching Jan's face, she had never been in that part of the city before. She had known that it existed and why the property was empty but had never seen the actual place. Perry made several turns and was before what had been a large three story building. Through the second and third story windows she could see the sky, there was no roof anymore. Perry drove through an electric operated gate into a large parking lot and pushed another button on a controller. A large roll up door raised and Perry drove them into a beautifully landscaped area and up to a house. The house was built against the massive brick wall opposite the entrance. On one side was a large swimming pool and on the other was six garage doors. The house looked like a space station, it was only one story high but the solar panels on the roof and the thermal glass windows gave that impression. Perry had Jan stay in the car while he collared two huge Rotweiler dogs. When he had them sitting he asked Jan to get out and meet his security system. As Jan let the dogs smell her hands Perry was assuring them that she was a friend. When he let the dogs go they each smelled of her body and Perry promised Jan they would remember her from then on. Perry led the way to the front door. The dogs rushed inside before Perry, Perry laughed and said the dogs were checking the place for danger.
The house was large but had only a kitchen, dining area, and a massive living space all in one room. There were two bed rooms both with baths at the end of the living area. The impression Jan got was that she was in a place of plush luxury.
Perry told Jan he lived there without electrical power or city water. He said the solar panels generated enough to operate the electrical appliances. The water was rain collected to a cistern in what had once been the basement of the building. Perry explained that the water was filtered then put through an ionizer before coming to the house. Perry told Jan he did not like the taste of the water in the cities lines. Jan asked for a glass to taste it. She had never had better tasting water before.
Perry told Jan the house had a capped gas well on the property. It had been drilled as a water well in nineteen twelve and had produced only gas. It had been capped all those years until he began taking gas from it for his house. Perry looked at his watch and told Jan they would need to go or he was going to be late for his two thirty appointment.
While touring the house one or the other of the dogs had been at Jan's side with her hand on it's head. As they were leaving both dogs wanted to go with her.
While Perry drove Jan back to her office Jan asked how he had gotten the property his house was on. Perry told her he had found the deed to the property in old papers stored in his grandfathers house before it was torn down to make room for apartments. Perry said there was a note saying that the old gentleman wanted his grand son Perry to have the worthless property in hopes it might become of value someday.
Perry asked where he could take Jan. Jan gave the address of her apartment building and said her offices were there.
Before she got out Jan asked if Perry was the owner of Morgan Security Service. Perry acknowledged that he was. Jan said he was furnishing security for both Richardson Steel and Richardson Foundries. Perry nodded.
Jan went through the doors of Richardson Travel Agency.
That afternoon both got a Dunn and Bradstreet report on the other.
Janet Richardson had a net worth of twenty three million, Perry had a net worth of over fourteen million. Both were wealthy.
They met at the Oasis at seven, Jan was wearing a western costume, Perry was in jeans and boots. They split a club sandwich and drank a beer then started to entertain the customers. Jan was better than just good, she was great. Several times Jan would leave Perry to say hello to some one she knew. Perry would do an instrumental or sing alone. The evening went by fast, it was after ten thirty before they knew it. As they were leaving Jan invited Perry to see her place. Perry followed Jan to the loading zone where he had dropped her off earlier that afternoon. Jan pushed a button at the glass lobby doors and a uniformed doorman came from behind a glass window and let them in. Jan thanked him, Perry said " Good evening Garvey". Garvey said " Good evening Mr. Morgan". Perry asked Garvey if he was armed. Garvey opened his jacket and showed a gun in a shoulder holster and said " Boss you know I am always when on the job". Perry asked Garvey to take care of Miss Richardson, she was special. Garvey replied that he and the other Doormen were aware of that.
On the elevator going up Jan asked if the Doormen were working for Perry. Perry said they were working for her, he just paid their wages.
Jan had used a key instead of a button to get to her floor in the elevator, otherwise it would go no higher than the eighth floor. There were cameras in the elevator and the halls of the building. The door to the stairs could be opened only from the penthouse level, it could be used only in the event of a fire.
Jan let Perry into her apartment, She lived in luxury as well as Perry did. She fixed drinks and showed Perry over her place. Jan said that during last winters ice storm she had been comfortable for the week the power was off. She had gas logs in her bed room and the living room for heat. She had kerosene lamps for light at night and had been lucky enough to have plenty of food on hand. She said she had hibernated for the week.
They went out on the terrace, Perry was impressed with the view of the city. It was chilly out there in the wind, Jan backed into Perry and placed his arms around her waist. She could feel him getting a hard cock against her ass, she asked if Perry would like to spend the night with her. Perry told her he would. Jan led the way to her bed, shedding clothes along the way. She was nude when she lay down on it. She was so beautiful Perry nearly lost his breath looking at her. Jan laughed and asked if he was going to be the rest of the night getting undressed. Perry asked what her hurry was, he reminded her that they had the rest of night and all day the next day to get acquainted. Jan said " That might not be long enough". Perry striped his cloths off and began kissing Jan, he moved down to her nipples and was nursing on them when she had her first climax. He kissed her flat belly and then parted the hair around her pussy and licked her lower lips. Jan had her second climax from that. Perry spread her legs as wide as they would go, that caused her lips to part, he drove his tongue into her vagina. Just a few minutes of fucking her with his tongue made her have another climax. When Jan quit threshing on the bed Perry moved to her clitoris, Jan howled like a hurt dog and had a massive climax then. Jan begged " No more, no more, I am about to pass out from your loving darling, let me rest for a bit. They kissed and loved on each other for a bit. Perry had a hard sticking into Jan's belly, she took it in her mouth and soon had him spurting his semen in her throat. Jan kept him hard and had him ready to put it in her soon. Perry fucked her for an hour before letting go in her sweet, tight, gripping pussy. Jan may have had a dozen orgasms.
After that they talked, Jan confessed to being a wild thing in high school and later in college. She said she had fucked hundreds of boys then but her perspective had changed after she graduated from college. She had come to understand that all men had a cock but only a few knew how to use it properly with a woman. She told Perry that he certainly knew how to use his. Perry kissed her and suggested they go to sleep. He promised they would do it again the next morning.
Jan slept better than she had in years that night, she felt so safe and loved in Perry's arms. Jan woke first and sat on the bed looking at Perry's face in repose. He had been the best lover she had ever had. She wanted to do what ever it took to keep him. She decided to let him know she was in love with him but not belabor the point, she would be content to just be with him when he wanted her. She would do what ever he wanted of her. She would not be a 'clinging vine' but just be there when he wanted. She hoped that would make him fall in love with her. Jan was twenty four years old and beginning to feel that she would never find a man to love. Perry was a year older than she, they were the perfect age to start a family.
Perry woke while Jan was having her day dreams, he watched her and wondered what she was thinking. Jan saw that Perry was awake and looking at her. She said " Good morning Dream Lover, would you like me to fix breakfast now"? Perry told Jan he would rather fuck her than eat. Jan said " That was a stupid question I just asked, I would rather do that than cook any day". Perry smiled and asked Jan to get him hard then. In minutes her warm mouth and soft fingers had him ready. Perry told her he wanted her on top so he could play with her tits. Jan was a wild woman for an hour. Her legs got tired finally and Perry let go that semen he had been saving for her. Jan collapsed on his chest and asked if they could sleep for a while and then do it again. Perry told her they could. They spent two hours napping, Jan on Perry's chest and he soft but still in her. They did do it again. At noon Jan made sandwiches and they ate on the bed with an ice cold beer to wash the sandwiches down. They took another nap, Perry woke at near three to find that Jan had his cock hard again. Perry groaned that he did not think he could use that in her again. Jan smiled and said " Could we just try"? She added " You are the best thing that ever happened to me". An hour later Jan moaned " I love you darling man". Perry said " I may be falling in love with you Jan, I feel differently about you than any other woman I have ever known ". Jan asked if Perry could spend another night with her. Perry told her he had to get home and feed his dogs. He asked her to spend the night with him Monday night. Jan asked Perry to pick her up when he left work. Every other night for the next month they would spend the night at one of their homes.
One morning Jan woke missing Perry's arms around her. Perry was sitting in a chair watching her sleep. When he knew Jan was awake Perry said " I am in love with you honey and I want to know if you would consider marrying me". Jan began crying and trembling, she could not talk, she threw herself in Perry's arms. Perry asked if she was saying that she would marry him. Jan could only nod. Perry told her to set it up then. He asked if she wanted children, Jan nodded and Perry asked how many. Jan held up ten fingers. Perry pushed her hands down and held up four. Jan nodded and kissed him. Later Jan got control and said " I love you Perry with all my heart". It was a Sunday and they were at Perry's home. Perry assured her that he felt the same for her. He told Jan to make the plans for their wedding. Later Perry and Jan got into a heated discussion about who would pay for what. That turned into a pillow fight and Jan beat Perry into a laughing submission in which he allowed Richardson money to pay for all of the wedding.
Two weeks later Perry dropped Jan off at her apartment in the Richardson building. She planned to go upstairs, get dressed and spend the day at her office. Perry was going to bring lunch around noon. Perry parked in the loading zone and got out as Jan did, he walked around the front of his car intending to kiss Jan and see her inside her apartment lobby. Jan had pressed the door bell and was standing at the door waiting, as Perry approached her she impulsively took two steps and threw her arms around Perry's neck to kiss him. That movement saved her life. THE GLASS DOOR BEHIND HER SHATTERED FROM A RIFLE SHOT. Perry carried her with him to the sidewalk and rolled with her to the curb next to the car. He drew his pistol from his shoulder holster and looked around to determine where the shot had come from. He suspected it had been fired from the six story office building across the street but saw no one at a window. One window on the fifth floor was open though and Perry thought the shot may have come from there. Jan peeped over the hood of Perry's car next to him. Perry told her " Get down girl, you are a target". Jan did as she was told.
