Dayna Silva was a dark Brazilian
beauty with a perfect figure, 38-24-36. Actors, moguls athletes and rock
stars pursued her from coast to coast. She was currently dating a rapper,
named Chase. She was also college educated.
Dayna lived and breathed hip-hop,
she demanded and received $25,000 per video and she attended all the hip-hop
functions. It was not unusual for her to attend a party on Friday, shoot
a video that evening, fly to Vegas on Saturday, shoot a layout, fly back to
New York and dine on a yacht.
Dayna was named one of the
“50 Most Beautiful People” in the world. An overseas publication
named her the “Sexiest Woman In The World” and a men’s magazine
asked, “Is this the most beautiful black woman in the world?” She
was alluring and she oozed sex appeal, her dance skills were extraordinary.
Her career was on fire!
Dayna planned to attend a
baby shower for video director, Milan. Chase was headed to the gym with his
Dayna arrived, she found Milan
in the kitchen. A convertible Porsche pulled up, a young black woman was driving,
Dayna asked, who’s that? Milan said, Oh my god, she made it!
That’s Lear, my cousin, Dayna replied, that car costs six figures, what
does she do? Milan replied, Lear is “Condoleeza smart,” she is private
and somewhat mysterious regarding her finances and business activities.
Milan went out to greet Lear.
Everyone sat in the living room as Milan opened her presents. Dayna struck up
a conversation with Lear about the entertainment industry. Lear said, when I
was young, I was always intrigued by the entertainment industry and espionage.
Those two fields fascinate me. Dayna asked, do you work in intelligence?
Lear avoided her question and told her, my friend, an actress, asked
me to locate someone. He was located within hours, my friend referred
me to others, I was able to combine entertainment and intelligence, I was a
fixer, a damage control expert for ‘Black Hollywood, my business eventually
expanded to include white celebrities.’ Very lucrative, this gives me
the money I need to invest in natural resources. I am the only black female
fixer, the only black male fixer is in Washington, D.C.
They continued talking throughout
the evening. Before Lear left, she asked Dayna, if you had one wish, what would
it be? Dayna answered, an older sister to look after me. Dayna asked
Lear, what would your wish be? Lear replied, a younger sister to look
after. Lear gave Dayna her ‘priority’ cell phone number and departed.
A week later, Chase left to
compete in an amateur bodybuilding contest in Europe, he was also booked for
Dayna finished shooting a
layout. She returned home, her agent called, a few of her bookings got cancelled,
her next booking was a week away. Dayna called her accountant, she was
in a high tax bracket and deductions were subtracted for her publicist, stylist,
lawyer and agent. Dayna was upset about her financial situation, she needed
someone to talk to, she called Lear. Before they hung-up, Lear told Dayna,
my boyfriend Pierce is on assignment, why don’t you drive up to Carmel,
we can attend the Pebble Beach golf tournament. Dayna jumped at the opportunity.
Dayna arrived late afternoon,
Lear lived in a beautiful home overlooking the ocean. Later that evening,
they went for a seafood dinner in Monterey, afterwards they went on the famous
17-mile drive. The scenic view was spectacular.
The next day, they attended
the Pebble Beach golf tournament. Afterwards, they returned to Lear’s
house. She prepared baby back ribs on the outdoor grill. Lear told
Dayna, my ribs are so good, I don’t use BBQ sauce, just my three secret
spices. Lear was right, Dayna had never tasted ribs so seasoned, tender
After dinner, they had a long
conversation, Dayna told Lear, I don’t have any women friends, they seem
to resent me because of my looks. Lear admitted, you are exceptionally beautiful
and I love your class, I am a secure person, I am not jealous or resentful.
Being a successful minority, I try to keep a low profile; despite the
car and the house. I don’t like unwanted attention. People not only resent
looks, they also resent articulation. Dayna replied, if you are involved in
covert activities, that may scare some people off, not me, at least you are
on the right side of the law.
Dayna asked Lear, how did
you become so smart and knowledgeable, and how many degrees do you have and
what is your secret to success? Lear smiled, I love to read, knowledge really
is power and I have the ability to snatch information from the sky (satellite).
I have one degree, contrary to popular belief, a degree is not the most
powerful credential in the world, a press pass is, you can get into the White
House with press credentials but you can’t gain entry with a degree.
As for success, like I told Pierce, “The secret to success is being like
a good lover, not always available.” Also, don’t cloud your
mind with substances. I don’t do drugs, alcohol, nicotine or caffeine.
Lear continued, I also had
a great mentor, he was an older Italian gentleman named Giovanni, he idolized
Robert DeNiro, he even loved black women like DeNiro, we weren’t sexually
involved because he was impotent. I haven’t talked to him in awhile, it
would upset Pierce, he is a proud black man. Lear asked Dayna, so you are involved
with a rapper, aren’t they rough with women? Dayna smiled, all image
and bravado, Chase treats me well, but-he has become very moody and our money
is kind of funny. Tell me about Pierce, Lear replied, he’s a former
golden gloves boxer and he currently works in Federal Law Enforcement.
Lear continued, I’m
going to introduce you to real music, although I am in my 30’s, I love
old school. Lear put on Ray Charles’s Greatest Hits, Marvin Gaye &
Tammi Terrell, Stephanie Mills and the Temptations.
The next morning, Lear grilled
mesquite chicken, she used a food injector to inject lemon juice into the chicken
breasts, when you cut into the chicken, the lemon juice seeped out, she also
prepared garlic mashed potato’s with cream cheese.
Before Dayna left, she thanked
Lear for her hospitality. Lear told her, if you ever need anything, ‘you
dial with your first finger.’
Dayna returned home, Chase called, she told him about her weekend. He was due
home the following week.
Dayna went to a party, a drunk
rapper approached Dayna and kissed her on the mouth, a photograph was taken.
Dayna was livid, she asked the paparazzi for the film, he replied, ‘the
photo will appear in the tabloids on Friday,’ Dayna became worried, Chase
would hit the roof and accuse her of cheating.
She returned home and called
Lear. Lear told her, don’t worry, that photo will never see the light
of day, Dayna asked, what do you mean? Before Lear could answer, a call came
in on the other line, Dayna put Lear on hold, it was the tabloids, they wanted
to know if she had a comment regarding the photograph, she clicked off, when
she returned to the other line, Lear had already hung-up. On Friday, Dayna
rushed to the newsstand, she scanned the tabloids, nothing. She returned
home to find a package. She opened the package, enclosed was the photograph
and the negatives.
Lear spent her birthday with
Pierce, she celebrated her birthday a week later with Dayna. Dayna paid for
a trip to Montreal, they visited art museums, later that evening, Dayna presented
Lear with a painting by ‘Basquiat.’
A week later, they were talking
on the phone, Dayna told Lear that her favorite car was a Dodge Viper.
Lear asked, why don’t you buy one? Dayna replied, you have to be kidding,
money goes through my hands like water and my credit history is sketchy.
Lear told her, go to any Dodge dealership after 1 p.m. today, you won’t
have a problem.
The car salesman returned
to his desk. Ms. Silva, let me commend you on your spotless credit history,
I see where you paid off a $500,000 property loan in one year. Your credit
is great, no down payment is required, congratulations.
Dayna was ecstatic, she called
Lear and thanked her. She drove to Chase’s, she walked in on him putting
a needle in his arm, Chase and his friends were shooting steroids and sharing
needles. He looked at her angrily, jumped up, bolted towards her and punched
her in the mouth, he proceeded to throw her down and kick her in the ribs.
Chase screamed, you spying on me bitch? I been shooting steroids for a
year now, ain’t shit you can do about it! His friends laughed, after they
left, Dayna called 911.
Dayna called Lear from the
hospital, without telling Lear the reason she was in the hospital, Dayna asked
Lear to go by her house and retrieve her laptop before she came to the hospital.
Lear and Pierce didn’t need a key.
Lear and Pierce arrived at
the hospital. They went into Dayna’s room. Dayna was introduced to Pierce,
she proceeded to tell them that Chase beat her up. Lear plugged in her
laptop, Dayna checked her email, a look of alarm crossed her face. Lear
asked, what’s wrong? Dayna pointed to the screen. Someone sent me
a death threat, “If you press charges against Chase or go to the media,
you will die, bitch!” Lear wrote down the email address and handed
it to Pierce, honey, do a email trace, I also need to speak to you privately.
Chase was walking to his SUV,
suddenly, someone grabbed him around his neck and took his head and smashed
it through a car window, Chase screamed in pain. Pierce said, Dayna is
untouchable, don’t ever go near her again! Chase screamed, fuck
you! You don’t tell me how to handle my bitches, me and my boys
will fuck you up! I’ll also go to the police on your ass!
Pierce showed him his badge and shouted, I am the law, motherfucker! Chase
was stunned. Just remember, ‘You and your gang-banging friends are
no match for the type of power that Dayna has behind her.’
Pierce traced the email to
Rodney, a friend of Chase’s, he broke into Rodney’s apartment and
gave him a serious beat-down. Rodney was barely conscious when Pierce told him,
don’t ever threaten Dayna again.
recovered, she never heard from Chase again. Meanwhile, Dayna’s mother needed
an organ transplant. Dayna took a battery of tests. A week later,
the doctor summoned her to his office.
Silva, I have some bad news and some surprising news. I will give you the surprising
news first. You are incompatible with your mother for an organ transplant.
Dayna said, but she is my biological mother. The doctor said, I spoke
to your mother, she informed me that two heartbeats were detected before your
birth but she only gave birth to one child, you. Ms. Silva, I believe you are
a surviving twin, and that you are a ‘Chimera.’ Dayna’s voice quivered
as she said, Oh my God. She regained her composure and asked, what is
a Chimera? The doctor replied, a Chimera is-twins who fused at an early
stage of the pregnancy to form a single embryo, you develop two DNA strands,
that’s why you’re incompatible with your mother. Now the bad news, Ms.
Silva, I am sorry to inform you, you are HIV positive.
was trying to calm Dayna down, Dayna shouted, that fucking steroid shooting
bastard gave me HIV!
sobs, she told Lear that the doctor also told her that she was a ‘Chimera.’ Lear was stunned, I didn’t know you were a surviving twin, Dayna replied,
I didn’t know either, Oh God, I’m going to die. Lear embraced her, listen
to me, your life is not over, I will take care of this, have I ever let you
down, between sobs, Dayna replied, no. Lear asked, have you told Chase?
Dayna replied, not yet, Lear replied, good, don’t disclose your HIV status to
anyone, Dayna asked, why? Lear replied, trust me. Get some rest, I have
to make a call, I need to schedule a meeting.
Bryce escorted Lear and Dayna into his office.
got right to the point. Ms. Silva, Lear informs me that you are a ‘Chimera,’
and that you are HIV positive. Dayna sadly nodded her head. Sterling
continued, that is a rare medical condition. Only 30 Chimera’s exist.
you have two separate sets of DNA, that makes your DNA untraceable. If you’re
suspected of a crime, your DNA will never match 100 percent; which is needed
to make a conviction. Your DNA will hit 7 out of 13 DNA markers, which is inconclusive. Twins usually have the same DNA, not Chimera’s. Non-identical twin
cells intermingle in the womb and grow into a single body. For instance,
your cells may dominate your blood in regard to tissue typing. Your twin’s
cells may dominate your ovaries. Both of your cells live alongside each
other in your body, a mixture of two people.
Silva, I would like to offer you an opportunity to serve your country, Dayna
asked, in what capacity?
world leaders, dictators and potential terrorists pose a ‘future’ threat to
our country, in the name of National Security we would like for you to intentionally
infect these individuals with the AIDS virus. Dayna was stunned.
Sterling continued, you won’t have to seduce these men, you are beautiful and
famous, they will approach you and men prefer sex without condoms. The
women they infect after you, we consider collateral damage.
you infect them, they will develop full-blown AIDS in 5-7 years, they will no
longer be a threat to National Security. You will never be prosecuted
because your DNA is untraceable.
are one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen, beauty and fame transcend
race. Also, your former boyfriend Chase was killed this morning, if it
was revealed that he had HIV, that could be traced back to you and we need to
keep your status confidential.
you agree to these terms, we will move you to the South of France and you will
be supplied with AIDS drugs that are not available to the general public, experimental
drugs that will prolong your life for a very long time. Similar to diabetics
living with diabetes. We will also pay your living expenses. You
will be our ‘secret weapon.’
some urging from Lear, Dayna agreed to the terms. Afterwards, Sterling buzzed
in a handsome African-American man named Mario. He introduced him to Dayna. Mario informed Dayna-he was living with HIV, he got infected through
a tainted blood transfusion while on assignment in a third world country.
If she needed a new friend or companion, he was available. After Sterling
and Mario left the room, Dayna turned to Lear and embraced her.
really do think of everything, I don’t know what I would do without you, my
best friend, my guardian angel, the big sister I never had. Thank-you
for being my friend.
