Boss-lady had a unique position in Boss-man's, an old, retired, pimp's, whorehouse. She was the madam in charge of keeping the girls on their toes, or backs, as it were. And to top things off, Boss-man had given her permission to throw weekly parties in which she was allowed to freak with any of the women she chose. She being a recently released lesbian from prison, took full advantage of Boss's gratuity.Everything was running fine until the elderly Boss-man suffered a fatal heart attack, some saying, because of the pressure he was under to sell the Mob's dope, which they forced on him, and he didn't know how to handle, while fearing the wrath of the organization if he messed up.Immediately after the death of Boss-man, Lady, while grieving his loss, wasn't sure she could fill his shoes. But with the aid of Old Ben, one of Boss's life long friends, and barber shop owner, she pulled herself together and managed to keep the whorehouse open, even getting more girls to join her stable.Once Boss-lady found her feet, she became unsatisfied with only running one place. She was ambitious. She, while using money Boss-man left her, purchased another house and hired another, retired, pimp, to run it.The question is, would her ambition be the catalyst, which would bring her criminal life crashing down on her head?
