I told her what I wanted, she laughed.

You don't give in. That's the deal. No matter what I say or do, or how hard I struggle, you stay put"

laughed again. A deep, robust laugh. She did everything big.

get everything I own," I said, changing my tone. Letting her know I was serious. "I leave you the condo. The cars. There are
rental properties. Stocks." I handed her the list of assets. "That's what I'm
worth. Honest to God. You work fifteen minutes, you walk away with all of it."
scrutinized the list.

on, Karen. You know me. I'm almost a regular. Have I ever tried to short you? No. I pay what I owe and leave a big tip. Besides,
you can check me out. You have my permission. Hire somebody. Investigate me."
handed her my business card, which she took.
won't let me have it," she said abruptly. She took another drag and flicked her ash. "Your family. You got family somewhere.
They'll crawl out of the woodwork. They'll want their fair share."
'em," I said. "What do I care what they want? We were planning to marry. We were making love. We were trying something a little
different. Before you knew it, I was dead."
make a will. We'll hire a lawyer. He'll make it iron clad. I'll make sure you get it all."
sign it over to me now," she said.
It's a tall order I'm asking for. I've got to make sure I get what I pay for. You get the money when you do the deed."
why don't you hire a goddamned hit man," she asked.
I don't want to go that way," I told her. "I want to go...the way I told you."
snorted a laugh and shook her head, then looked me dead in the eye.

here, aren’t I, talking to you about it?"

look,” I said. I stood up. “I'll find somebody else. I just thought...I mean, with your weight and the way it's
fat ass, you mean?"
right. I just thought that with your big, fat ass and your reputation, you'd be ideal for a job like this."
know...Kinky Karen. I told you that’s what they call you when I looked you up in the first place. You came highly recommended."
studied me again, snorted, and shook her head.
don't know if I can do it," she said. "I’ve done all kinds of crazy shit, but I don't know if I can kill a man."
you could kill a man, alright," I said, taking an exaggerated gander at her massive backside. “But that’s not
the point. The point is, I'm asking you to do it. I'm begging you. It's not like
you're taking something from me. You're giving me something. You're giving me death—a
thing I want. You're doing me a favor. Only it's a service, just like in bed tonight—a service that I'm paying for.”

derrière barely contained in a skirt designed for a woman half her size.
at all the attention, flustered, I closed the door behind her.
plopped that big ass down on the sofa, fanned herself with both meaty hands, her big rings flashing, and fought to catch her
breath while I stared at her, obviously annoyed by her presence.
you don’t like me coming here,” she said finally, still huffing from the exertion,
“you’re not going to like what I have to say.”
took a seat behind my desk and studied her. All of our dealings had been conducted in the shadows, so to speak—there,
and under the sheets. It was the first time I’d actually seen her in the light of day.

your great idea," I asked her, still annoyed. "The one that brought you here. To my office. In broad daylight."
guys are all the same," she said. "All kisses and hard-ons in the dark, then ashamed of it in, what'd you call it... broad
daylight?" She rolled her eyes, then found mine and stared into them. "Marry me," she said. "That's my guarantee. You make
the will and all just like you said. But then we marry, go on our honeymoon, and then, while we’re in Jamaica or Paris
or whatever other fancy-assed place you'd like to take me, I do what you said. Then I get it all, no questions asked. Because
I'll be your wife. That’s the only way I’ll do it.”
it was me who was hesitating.
don't see why it's necessary I marry you."
avoided marriage all my life. I’d known a lot of wives, and most of them eventually became ex-wives. In a marriage,
somebody always lets somebody down. I didn’t want the drama.
just marry me," she said. "Marry me with bells on. I want the works. Engagement party. Everything. So that everybody sees
how in love we are, so they don't look at me and say, 'That fat pig whore married him, then killed him for his money' and
try to take it from me. Instead they'll say, 'That poor girl. He really loved her, you know."
do you care what they say?"
I don't give a rat's ass what those hoity-toity fuckers say," she assured me. "But I care what them goddamned lawyers are
gonna say. I care about whatever creepy goddamned nephews and second cousins you got slithering up from the depths and claiming
I married and murdered you for money."

she said. “Put my fucking shoe on.” She seemed irritated. I got up, walked around my desk, picked her shoe up
and, on one knee, squeezed her fat foot into it. Then I helped her up. She stood
a minute, catching her breath.
"Okay,” she said again. “Now
you’ve got seven days."

she said, "I guess the deal is off."
shrugged. She turned around and lumbered out of my office toward the elevator, shaking that big ass.

local whore, would generate.

other big-assed call girl would take the bait. I even interviewed a couple of

I was afraid I’d fuck it up. I mean, have you ever Googled that shit? People who have tried to do themselves in and
thought about what Karen had said, too. About hiring a hit man. But I didn’t want to support the criminal aspects of
our community. I mean, not that kind of criminal aspect. Whores I had no problem with. No. I could give everything I owned
to a whore.
I wanted to end this so-called life, but I wanted to do it my way.
four days later I dialed Karen up and told her I’d have my secretary place an article announcing our engagement in the
paper. I needed some personal information, and her permission to play with the facts of her biography a little. She could,
of course, approve the announcement before publication. And that was that. We
had a lawyer draw up a will in which she became sole heir to everything I owned. Then we threw a massive engagement party
during which she absolutely shocked and dismayed everyone there with her mere massive, half naked presence, then further traumatized
them by devouring almost the entire buffet herself, getting piss-ass drunk, and passing out sprawled on a settee that, though
meant for two, was barely wide enough to hold her.

CEO called me on the carpet not long after. I’d been in the running to one day step in his shoes, but this whole thing—marrying
this hugely fat woman...and who was she, anyway? Nobody could find any information on her. None of the facts we’d published
were true. There were all sorts of sordid rumors. Was she some sort of prostitute? What was I trying to do?
couldn’t bring myself to answer any of those questions, and so when he asked for my resignation, I complied.

of my last acts as Senior Executive Vice President was to have my secretary send out wedding invitations. We’d originally
planned a three month engagement, thinking that ninety days might be at least a socially acceptable period of waiting, but
since all pretense of acceptability had gone out the window, the announcement was for a wedding three weeks away.
rented a Pentecostal Church a few miles out of town. It was the first one we could find on such short notice. The preacher
was congenial and very happy with the contribution I offered. He agreed to perform the ceremony. The church was too small,
however, and the air conditioning poor, and there were more than a few nauseous casualties amid the standing room only crowd
who attended, despite the short notice, in order to see me get hitched to the big, fat whore I chose to marry.

about the complications of shipping a dead body back from a foreign country or even another state, Karen decided on a honeymoon
right here in town. We checked into the bridal suite of one of the big hotels, ordered room service, enjoyed a big meal and
high-priced champagne, then began what would become several days and nights of intense lovemaking.
then one evening as we rolled hot and heavy in the sheets I found myself under what felt like 400 pounds of prime BBW butt.
I took it as long as I felt I could, then gave the signal, a wriggle of the toes, to indicate I’d had enough and needed
Karen didn’t move.
I wriggled my toes some more, thinking maybe she hadn’t noticed. It was getting hot under there, and I really needed
to breathe, but Karen only squirmed a bit, settling in, pushing even more of her weight onto my face.
that’s when I realized that my blushing bride was doing what I’d hired her to do.

my perspective I could make out over a massive roll of butt fat Karen’s meaty back with its rolls and folds of adipose
tissue, and the ends of her long bleached hair swaying a little with her movement, and as my vision started to fade I knew
that this image, certainly one of my all time favorites in life, would indeed be the one I’d take into the absolutely
uncertain, perhaps eternal future.

Just like I’d wanted.
