Larry and the Cop (Rough Draft)
Written By Paul-Michael “LuckyDog” Stephens
 
Chapter 1--Larry gets caught
 
I was working undercover on an afternoon and evening, waiting on a burglar to get home. It was a cold day that was rainy, the kind of day that makes people do strange things, and causes plenty of traffic accidents. I sat in my car, drinking cup after cup of coffee for what seemed like days, but was only about five hours, while my partner, whose wife was having a baby, had the night off. This was his fourth child, and he never seemed to get used to having them. We were short-handed on the team so I was solo. “When was this asshole gonna show up?” I thought.
 
The burglar’s ex-girlfriend tipped us off. She was a very unhappy and very ugly woman, the kind you don’t want to have to talk to, that had horrible breath and body odor that would knock a buzzard off a shit wagon and she couldn’t wait to get even with her dirt-bag ex-boyfriend, so she told us he was staying at his cousin’s apartment while they were out of town. She said she was sure we could find him there.
 
It was a brick fronted, two-story building in a bad part of town. The apartment had a window that I could see from the alley. As soon as the lights went on, I would know someone was home. So I waited, and waited, and I watched.
 
The burglar had been identified by one of his victims from a photo line up we had made up, so we were pretty sure this was the guy we were looking for. He had probably done about six burglaries that we were aware of since his release from prison only six months ago.
 
Something caught my attention out of the corner of my eye.
 
He was in the alley crouching next to a dumpster, he had sandy brown hair and a skinny build, and I could just tell something was up. I slowly and silently approached him, just out of his line of vision, sticking in the shadows, all my years of training and experience coming in to play. I didn't know if this kid might be dangerous or not, so I was being extremely cautious. Besides, I didn’t want to startle him.
 
I got close enough to see he was just done shooting up. My God, I thought, he was only around 20 years old. He saw me and threw down his rig, but he was so stoned he couldn't run, but he did try to stand up.
 
I drew my Sig, my favorite weapon, and aimed straight at his heart and told him "settle down, and I won't hurt you." I flashed my badge and told him I was a cop.
 
He turned pale and looked like he was about to pass out.
 
I walked cautiously up to him, gun still pointed, and said, "Stand up and turn around slowly and keep your hands where I can see 'em." He was eager to comply, even if only somewhat able to do so, I pushed him against the wall and I patted him down.
 
I couldn't help but notice the sizable bulge in his crotch, and when I passed my hand over his ass crack he shuddered and let out a slight moan like a virgin on her first date. I ran my hand across his chest and felt his nipples get hard too. I was sure he wasn't dangerous, by now; I guessed he was just a young scared kid trying to get a high and apparently, he was horny also. I thought to myself, “Wonder what it was he took?”
I cuffed him and sat him down on a pile of old carpet that smelled of piss and mold. I said "What's your name kid?" he told me "Larry, Larry James, sir." He added, “Man, I mean officer,” I corrected him and told him I was a detective, “please don't arrest me, I just got thrown out of my friend's house 'cause he caught me using." He then told me how his roommate was a bible thumping born again that also wasn’t aware the kid was gay.
 
I immediately started feeling sorry for the kid, I don’t know why, maybe it was because I was attracted to him, or maybe it was because I had seen so many kids just like him in my years on the force, young gay men that were rejected so much that they turned to drugs and unsafe behavior to make themselves feel better, even if only for a moment.
 
I told him, "I have to arrest you. I have no choice son." He started crying and it began to tear my heart out. Even old jaded cops like me still have a heart.
 
I said ‘Lets get you out of this damn cold wetness.” and I lifted him off the pile of rotting carpet and walked him over to my plain car and told him to watch his head as I sat him down in the back seat.
 
I asked if he had any ID. He said, "I'm really sorry sir, can't you just let me go?" I asked him again if he had ID, and since I frisked him pretty thoroughly, I was pretty sure he didn't, unless he was hiding it in his crotch. He sighed and said, "No sir, I don't have anything, and I used my last ten bucks to score that hit." At least he sounded truthful and he was being respectful. I think the shock and awe of me catching him probably killed his buzz pretty quickly, as he was getting more lucid now.
 
I said, "How old are you kid?" and he said, "I'm 24, my birthday is March 3rd." I decided to run his name and DOB (date of birth) on the MDT, (mobile-display-terminal) just to be on the safe side. It came back no hits, so he didn’t have any record, which showed up at least. You can never completely trust the computers, so when most cops get the feeling something doesn’t quite fit they usually radio in and have a manual check run, I let this slide.
 
I asked him "When was the last time you were arrested?" He said, "Never sir, this is my first time." He was lying, I could tell, but I again let it slide, for the time being.
 
Now, any cop will say to you, on the record, that street justice just doesn't exist, but all of us working the streets know that that isn't true. Just ask Rodney King and that guy with the video cam. But I made a decision right then and there that this kid was suffering enough and although he needed help, I knew jail wasn't going to help him one bit.
 
I asked him "Is there any place I can take you where you'll be safe?” ignoring the fact that I was putting my ass and my badge on the line, and since I always went by the book this was an extreme departure from the way I’ve always handled things.
 
He said, "No detective sir, I don't have any family, and my friends are all friends of my roommate. They'll probably side with him, if ya know what I mean." I did know what he meant.
 
I had room at my place in the gay ghetto, but I wasn't sure it would be a smart idea to take him back there. I didn't want to come home to an empty house because he ripped me off to buy his next hit.
 
I also knew if I took him to a motel where they don't ask questions, he would be in the same element and around the same kind of people he really didn't need to be around right now and would probably end up back in trouble, and for some reason I felt I could trust him. Call it a cop's gut instinct, but I figured he was harmless enough. I was hoping I wasn’t going to be wrong and that my instinct was true.
 
Chapter 2--Larry finds a home
 
I took him back to my place, still against my better judgment. I told him that my neighbor was really watchful (actually she was a nosey old bitty with too much time on her hands and a gossip to boot) and told him that he better stay put until I got off duty.
 
I showed him where everything was around the apartment and said, "Eat what you want, if you're hungry, and don't even think about trying to score while I'm gone, remember, the old lady will tell me everything that's going on around here." He smiled and laughed and said, "Why are you being so nice to me?” I saw his smile and it just melted my heart.
 
I told him, "Larry, I may be the only friend you have in the world right now and I plan on getting you some help." He smiled again and started to get a little teary and said "thank you so much sir, I don't know how I can ever repay you." I said, "I'm sure I'll think of a way" and flashed him my trademark evil grin.
 
I handed him a towel and said "Here, take a shower and get yourself cleaned up and try to eat something, I'll be back in a couple of hours to check on you, my shift is supposed to end at 2am and I'll be home about around an hour later, if you're still up we'll talk about how you are going to repay me." He lit up like a Christmas tree and said slyly "I bet you will." I just smiled and walked out the door.
 
All night long I kept thinking of him back at my house and what I was going to do with him when I got home. Part of me wanted so badly just to take him to a shelter in the morning and be done with it. But another part of me wanted him all for myself. He was one helluva good-looking kid, and I'd be a liar to say I didn't have thoughts of what he'd be like in bed. The burglar never showed.
 
I got home around 3:30am and he was still awake, sitting on the edge of my futon bed wrapped in the old towel and nothing else.
 
He must have noticed my eyebrows rise when I looked at him because he got a big grin across his face and said, "So you like what you see?" and I told him, "Yeah, I like what I see, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to see it all." Now why did I say that?
 
He then stood up and turned around so I could see his backside and then dropped the towel to the floor. I saw the nicest ass I had ever seen in my life, but I realized that I shouldn't be taking advantage of him, especially under the circumstances, and because at least I had a little bit of sense left, so I told him "Just relax boy, this isn't the right time for this, and although I am really turned on, really turned on, it just wouldn't be right." He was staring at my crotch so I knew he already knew how turned on I was.
 
He said, "Wow, I didn't think you'd turn me down, especially since you’re getting such a woody." and I said "I'm not turning you down; I just don't think it's the right time." He looked heartbroken and was staring down at the floor and said, "I really want you and that big cock in my ass, why don't you want me?" and I told him "Boy, you are everything I want, but just not right now." He looked directly into my eyes and said "OK sir, whatever you say." I said, "That's better, now let's get some sleep. OK? He said, “Yes daddy, Sir.”
 
My apartment is a three room single, and I have a queen sized futon style bed, so I have plenty of room for another body in it, I told him it would be okay to sleep in the bed with me if he wanted to, although I knew sleeping was going to be difficult. He just smiled a big grin and said "OK daddy. If you want, you can wake me up." I said, "I just might do that (why did I say that?), but all I can think of right now is getting some sleep, so lets just sleep.”
 
He slept very peacefully, tight up against me all night long, barely moving at all. I lied there listening to him breathing. I couldn't sleep well though; my cock was so fucking hard, all I kept thinking about was how badly I wanted him and how stupid I had already been for even bringing him home.
 
It had been almost two years since I was in a relationship and that long since I had had a sexual encounter or any sort, and having his warm tight body pressed up against me was more than I could bear.
 
I finally fell asleep at some point during the wee hours of the morning, and didn't wake up until I felt him stir. I looked over at the alarm clock and noticed it was almost noon.
 
He rolled over, wiped his eyes and yawned, and let out some sort of squeaky sound and looked at me with a big shit-eating grin on his face and said, "Did you sleep alright? I couldn't help notice your big hard stiffie pressed up against my back all night and it felt sooooo good." I laughed and said, "Yeah, you're right, it was hard all night, but I did get some sleep."
 
He looked into my eyes and put his hands on my shoulders and said, "Daddy, it felt so good to have ya hold me. I felt so safe in your strong arms, thank you so much. You are my lifesaver" and leaned forward to kiss me. I said, "No thanks necessary, just doing my job, sort of." We both had a good hearty laugh at that one and I let him kiss me.
 
Larry then fixed us both breakfast and I was surprised at what a good cook he was, and I thought to myself, this kid aint so bad after all, I guess my instincts were right.
 
I couldn't keep my eyes off of his naked body though as he was stirring up eggs and oatmeal in the kitchen and I knew he was watching me out of the corner of his eye too. He has the most fantastic, slim swimmer’s build with ice-blue eyes and a nicely rounded ass. His tousled brown hair was long and hung over his eyes.
 
We sat on the bed and ate our meal, a damn good one too. I usually don't even eat breakfast, but how could I refuse?
 
We both cleaned up the kitchen and when we were through Larry looked at me and said "Daddy, I'm always horniest in the morning. Is it time yet?" I looked at him as sternly as I could and said, "Damn it Larry, I'll tell you when its time. I want this just as much as you do, maybe even more, but I don't want to rush into anything, let's just enjoy being with each other and see how that works out. You have a lot to work out in your life, and I do want to help you, but just having sex won't help, not right now." I also secretly wanted to tease him a little too.
 
"But daddy, it won't hurt just this once, please." I said gruffly, "Larry, I have spoken, and if you want me to help you then you better heed what I say. You got that boy!"
 
"OK daddy Sir, you know what's best." I said, still gruffly, "Now, that's better, and as long as you keep thinking that way, we will have no problems. You understand?" He nodded his head, "But the first thing we need to do is to get you off the junk and back on your feet.” He frowned and said, "You're right daddy, please don't be mad at me." I said to him, a little pissed off now, "Larry, I'm not mad at you! I only want what's best for you." He said "Yes Sir!"
 
Chapter 3--Larry works it out
 
Fortunately for us, I had the next two days off, and I felt that the time would at least be enough time to get to know Larry a little better and to evaluate whether or not he was worth putting any effort into, or whether I should take him to the shelter as I was still inclined to do. I really didn’t want to just drop him off at a shelter because I knew he’d just head back out on the streets that were all too familiar to him. A zebra doesn’t change its stripes.
 
The next day, I decided, if Larry was going to stay with me, I needed to get his things from his roommate’s house. Larry told me the only things he owned were some clothes and a few toiletries. I guess I had already decided he was going to stay with me, even though I still had my doubts.
 
Larry only had with him the tattered jeans and t-shirt that he was wearing last night when he was supposed to be getting arrested and carted off to jail. So I told him I’d go with him to his roommate’s house and I would go in and get his things, so there wouldn’t be any confrontation. He told me where I could find his meager belongings and where his roommate lived and we headed out the door.
 
His ex-roommate is a white (pale white, pasty, like uncooked dough) male around the same age as Larry, with a fat round face that was blotched with red and acne scarred. He looked like he couldn’t get laid in a two-dollar whorehouse with a fistful of Benjamins. He had pale blue beady eyes that were set way too close together and red hair that reminded me of Howdy Doody on a bad day. He had apparently enjoyed a few too many Twinkies too, from the size of his waistline, and his toothbrush was only an acquaintance and never a friend.
 
I gave the door the regular cop knock, and said “Police, open up.” His roommate appeared at the door looking only a little surprised and said in a high whiny voice, “This is about Larry, isn’t it?” I told him, “Yeah, it sure is, and I’m here to pick up his belongings.” He made some kind of smart-ass remark about a search warrant, which I ignored, and I walked through the door, pushing him aside.
 
His house is a one-story rental with another unit in the back. It was immaculately clean inside, and I thought to myself, “Jesus would be proud.”
 
His name is Timothy James Christian. "How appropriate," I thought. He couldn’t wait to tell me that too, like he was being interrogated for a crime he didn’t commit.
 
I could tell he was a judgmental little ass-wipe the moment I laid eyes on him and when he opened his mouth he removed all doubt. He was straight, and never stopped talking about Jesus, sin, and the second coming. I kept thinking, “When is this fat fuck gonna shut his fucking mouth?” But he didn’t seem to even notice the disgust on my face and went right on sermonizing. If Jesus was here, I was sure this was the one and only man he wouldn’t forgive.
 
It took all my self-control to not just punch his teeth down his throat; at least it would shut him up. But I restrained the urge to permanently re-arrange his face and give him a full set of dentures, and packed up Larry’s shit into two garbage bags and headed out to the car with the bundles slung over my shoulder.
 
I was hoping he would just shut the door behind me, but I was wrong. As I was leaving, Mr. Christian said to me, “I hope you know what you’re doing, that dude is bad news.” I looked at him straight in the eyes, Mad dogged him, as the gangsters say and said “It’s none of your fucking business and keep your opinions and your attitude to yourself!” “And if anyone asks, anyone, you don’t know where Larry is, you got that?” He looked at me like a deer caught in the headlights and stammered, “OK, but…” I didn’t wait for him to finish the sentence, because I knew it would lead to a paragraph.
 
After that little exchange, we parted ways and I smiled to myself when I noticed his car had expired tags and was parked on the street. I guess he had no garage. I made a mental note to let Traffic know about it when I got back to my office on Monday.
 
I got back in the car and looked at Larry, sitting there with that sheepish grin that I was becoming very fond of, and told him, “I don’t even know how you could spend one minute in that fucking lame-ass guy’s house. He would make me use my gun in a way that was not lawful, and what the fuck are you smiling about?” Larry laughed and said, “Yeah, he’s a piece o’ work, huh? I was wondering what you would think of him.” We both had a good chuckle over Mr. Christian, I just shook my head and started the car and we drove back to my place.
 
When we got back to my place I cleaned out some drawers for Larry to put his shit in, threw his shaving kit on the back of the toilet, and told him, “You can stay with me for as long as you need to and as long as keep your nose clean.” Larry smiled at me and said, “You’re so good to me daddy, I don’t ever want to leave.” I replied, “Just don’t make me regret this decision Larry; I trust you to turn your life around from this very moment forward. And if you don’t, then don’t expect me to be there to catch you if you fall again.” It looks like I had made my final decision about him staying with me.
 
He pushed his head into my chest and I hugged him tightly and he started to cry. I lifted his head up and I wiped away his tears and said, “Larry, I want to see only tears of happiness from you from now on.” He looked directly into my eyes and said, “OK dad, I’ll be good. I promise.” And I said, “I know you will, you have no choice.” I smiled and hugged him as tight as I could against me.
 
It felt so good to hug him and hold him in my arms, I had waited so long for something to feel this good in my life again, as far as a relationship was concerned, and although I knew there were going to be rough seas ahead, I was glad for the chance; for us to both share a little happiness.
 
We made love for the first time that night, his second night in my home, and I was amazed at how good it was.
 
He liked everything I was into. He loved being spanked, having his hands cuffed, and getting fucked while he was on his back. He knew just how to please me too. We had no problem enjoying each other’s bodies in every way we could think of.
 
After cumming, his dick would get hard again almost immediately, and, even though some guys at my age have problems, I had no problem getting hard again right away too. His hard, cut, dick and smooth soft round ass and practically hairless were just what I wanted and needed too.
 
He was a totally submissive bottom and since I was a total dominant top, we fit together perfectly. All I had to do was just rub his ass softly and he'd shoot. He was also really into the fact that I was a cop. He even had me put my uniform on so we could role-play me arresting him and then raping him. We had mad, passionate sex, for almost two entire days, only stopping to eat a snack and to go to the bathroom.
 
I have been a cop for almost 20 years now, and have made it to Detective First Class. Luckily, I’ve worked for a department where being gay did not matter. I started out as a Cadet in the Explorer program when I was 18 and when I turned 21 they had an opening and I was made a full-fledged cop, I worked in the jail all that time and went out on ride-along whenever I could, I also worked traffic and parades, that’s what cadets do. For me, it was a dream-come-true.
 
I had spent 18 years on the streets and slowly worked my way up the ranks, first as Patrolman, then Corporal/Field Training Officer (FTO), then Sergeant, up until 2 years ago when I passed the Detective’s Examination. I passed with flying colors too!
 
I had always wanted to work undercover, and so, this was another dream come true for me, I was assigned to the Career Criminal Apprehension Team (C-Cat) and spent most of my time on the street just talking to people, sitting on stake outs, and taking down some pretty mean-assed mother fuckers, who really did not want, or expect to get caught again.
 
I have received many commendations from my superiors, and some accolades from my team members (never got a medal of honor though) and my work is the most satisfying thing I could ever do. I’ve always had high scores on my reviews. I am a damn good cop, if I do say so myself, and I’ve always done things by the book. Well, almost always.
 
But, for the life of me I couldn’t understand why I was risking it all for this boy, who deep down inside, I thought could cause me a world of hurt in more ways than I cared to imagine. I thought to myself, “I should know better at my age,” but I was trapped. No matter how hard I tried to come to my senses, it just wasn’t happening. I always overanalyze things, and it has kept me safe all these years, I suppose, but this was way different, I didn’t give it more than a second thought when it came to Larry. Must be love, dammit.
 
I felt I was really falling in love with Larry, and it felt really good to let go and let it happen. I knew Larry felt something for me, even if it was only because I was being kind to him, but deep inside me, I knew he loved me just as much as I loved him. And for better or worse, I had already started down a path from which I could never turn back. I knew my life had been forever changed by that one night on stakeout in that alley. I just hoped it was the right path. Time will tell, I thought.
 
Time did tell. After 2 months of drug rehab, which took its toll on both of us and 8 months of psychological therapy and some very emotional conversations between the two of us, Larry had finally turned his life completely around. I could not have been more proud of him, and I told him so with great regularity.
 
He was again enrolled at the local Community College and was working on finishing his degree in Engineering. He has so many talents; he’s artistic, can write and is very intelligent. I was continually impressed with all the things he was capable of. He was not only sexy and gorgeous, but he had brains as well! He actually used those brains now.
 
Chapter 4--The cop gets caught
 
Larry’s only family was his psycho-bitch drug addled mom and some family in another state that he had visited only once. She was a real shit too, and didn’t give a damn about Larry from the moment he was born, he told me. He showed me a picture of her and she looked like a pit bull with psoriasis and bad dental work. I thought to myself, “Glad she aint my mom.”
 
Some women are the most wonderful and protective mothers, as they should be, and others should just not become mothers, and Larry’s mom was in the latter category.
 
She got knocked up at only fifteen and married Larry’s dad, who was twenty-four at the time. Larry’s mom, Sara, may not have known what she was doing at the time, but his dad, Dan, sure as fuck did. Larry told me she said the only reason she married the man was to get away from home. A pretty sorry fucking excuse, if you ask me.
 
After Larry was born, very soon after, (Larry wasn’t sure exactly when) Sara and Dan got divorced. Larry never saw his dad again and according to him, he never cared to.
 
So with no other close family to protect him and a mother that needed to be raised herself, Larry had to grow up fast, assuming the roles of both mom and dad, in this dysfunctional “family” if you can call it that.
 
His mom was so strung out most of the time that Larry went without food for days at a time, and when he did get a good meal it was usually because a friend’s family invited him over for dinner. Larry was and still is always pretty endearing to others and so it was easy for him to wheedle an invite to a friend’s house for a meal once in a while. If it weren’t for his good friends, Larry probably would have starved and ended up looking like one of those kids you see on the Sunday Christian infomercials.
 
And yet, Larry managed to survive pretty well until at the age of 16 when he “came out” to his mom. That was when everything went to shit.
 
He had met his first lover then, and as usual, Larry was way too honest, and told his mom he was gay and that he had a lover. She blew it, big time. She told him that he had to get out of her house and that he was never welcome there again.
 
He left gladly, even though he had nowhere to go. There went his plans for college, right out the window, with his clothes. He ended up staying in abandoned houses and at a warehouse and his lover brought him whatever food he could sneak out of his house.
 
When Larry told me this story, it took everything I had in me to first, not break down in tears, and second, not want to hunt down and hurt that bitch, another un-cop like action, but that’s the way I felt.
 
Larry ended up on the streets and hustled and got into trouble, like most teens that are on the streets. He hung out with drug addicts and bikers and both sold and used drugs and tricked for meals and a warm place to spend the night. He’s just lucky it didn’t kill him, or worse.
 
Out in the cold hard world was no place for a young, intelligent and passionate boy like Larry, or any other kid, for that matter. But he survived and managed to stay out of prison, although he did end up in jail a few times. And since he was not an adult, his records were expunged when he turned 18.
 
Larry began to consider his options for the future when he reached legal age and was not happy with what he saw. So he found some part time jobs, mostly minimum wage jobs in the local fast food joints, and tried to save some money.
 
It took him three years to finally save enough money to enroll in the local junior college and he was on his way to getting his degree, working during the nights and attending classes when he could afford the tuition.
 
But the old demons that haunted him would not leave him alone. And he got into drugs again after only a short time, and that sure damn hell slowed his progress at getting his degree. It’s hard to pay for drugs and tuition and books, all at the same time, so it was taking longer than the average student for him to earn what would normally be a two-year degree, and he was almost thrown out of school on more than one occasion.
 
But, Sara, had not completely forgotten about Larry, and much to his, and my misfortune, had been keeping tabs on him through her network of drug dealers and street scum that she called friends. It’s too bad too, if she had just left him alone, we would have probably been just fine. But she was really a cold calculating evil bitch, and only wanted to make sure Larry never had the things she couldn’t or didn’t have.
 
I couldn’t understand how a mother could be such a cunt, but, there it was, she was like a jealous lover and couldn’t stand to see Larry have any happiness in his life and she was eager as could be to knock him down.
 
I soon found out that the dealer that Larry scored his last bag from was also a friend of Sara’s, and he told Sara about the night I found Larry. He had apparently seen the whole thing, because he told her in great detail, accurately, what had transpired the night that Larry and I first met.
 
He even followed me home that night, and I am usually pretty perceptive when it comes to being tailed, since I have a lot of enemies out there, but my mind was somewhere else that night, and I unfortunately, never noticed. That was a big mistake on my part; I was soon to find out just how big a mistake it was.
 
The fucking dealer told Sara all about us, and she wanted to know every detail too, saving it up in her head for use at a later date. And use it she did.
 
It was almost a year after Larry and I met on that fateful night that I got a call from my supervisor saying he wanted to see me in his office immediately. It made me a little nervous, but I still had no idea of what was about to come.
 
Chapter 5--The truth comes out
 
“Detective Sims, what the fuck were you thinking?” screamed Captain Mathieu, as I closed the door to his office. I knew by his tone that I was in deep shit.
 
Cap stood 6’ 4” and weighed far too little for his height, bean pole is the term that comes to mind. But he was one helluva good captain and he held the team together better than anyone else I could think of would have been able to do. He always had a kind word and really cared about his men. He’s always told us when we did a good job, which is unusual behavior for most captains.
 
Jeezus, he hardly let me get in the door and get it closed behind me before he started yelling, and ripping me a new asshole. He threw a file at me and told me I’d better sit down. I did, and then it hit me.
 
I looked down at the file, and was reading the cover, which had printed on it in bold red letters “Internal Affairs Division-Investigation File.” I sat there thinking, “Man, this it, they finally now know.” and my heart sunk into the pit of my stomach.
 
“Detective Sims, the info in that folder distresses me deeply.” He was still addressing me unusually formally. He always just called me John. “I know you are one of the straightest (I almost laughed when he used that term, but knew better) and best cops I have, and I just don’t understand how you could let this happen,” said the captain. “Cap, I am not really sure what you’re talking about, can I look inside the folder?” I lied, hoping to dispel some of his anger. He nodded yes and sat back in his chair waiting and watching and drumming his fingers on his chest.
 
I thumbed through the papers; there were names of people I had never even heard of. But the one that jumped out at me was the name Sara James-W1 (witness number one). There was W-2 through W-8, and a CI-1 (criminal informant) too. The CI was the dealer, of course.
 
I read through all twelve sheets of paper, which summed up what the charges against me were and all the witnesses that were identified in the preliminary investigation and their statements. I was being charged with dereliction of duty and failure to maintain professional conduct. That is some pretty serious shit for a cop. Career ending shit too.
 
It was all becoming rapidly clear to me and my head was swimming, and I knew I was in trouble, just how much trouble, I wasn’t sure. I did know that I could lose my job and my pension, and everything I have worked so hard for and my thoughts came as rapid as my heartbeat now was.
 
“Sims,” the captain said, still being formal, “these people aren’t too reliable, but you know IAD has to make an investigation. I just want to hear from you, your side of the story. I know you are a good cop, and this really seems to be a severe lack of good judgment on your part, if what these people are accusing you of is true, you’re in some deep shit boy.”
 
I said, “Cap, yep, it’s pretty damn accurate, and I’m kinda ashamed to admit it, but it did happen, just like they say it did.”I figured at this point I might as well admit it. Cap was always good to me and I didn’t want to deceive him.  I suppose I could have lied, but that’s just not me and with all the evidence they had, that would have been pretty fucking foolish too.
 
He looked down at his desk and frowned, still drumming his fingers on his chest and then he looked up at me, stopped, and said, “Well, you know what I have to do, and as much as it pains me to do it, I have no choice. It’s just a fucking shame you let this shit happen, you’re such a good goddamn cop too and we really need you here.” I replied, “Yes Cap, I know you have to do it, and I’m sorry it had to come out this way.” I took out my badge and my piece and laid them on his desk. The captain said “John, you are on Administrative Paid Leave until the IAD Board finishes its review.”
 
He then said “John, you know I love ya as I do my own sons, and its gonna be rough without your help around here, and it hurts to have to do this to you, it really does, I take no pleasure in it one bit, especially since we are so short handed and in the middle of so many investigations. But, this is it until the IAD Board hold it’s Conduct Review Hearing in two weeks, on Friday at 8pm, and I’ll be there to support you in any way I can, and I recommend you have an attorney present as well. Just tell me one thing, John. “How the fuck did this happen?”
 
I told him all the gory details, omitting nothing, and was glad to get it off my chest. We talked for almost two hours, and went over all the things that the IAD could do to me, and what I would have to do to fight the charges. I told the captain that I might as well not fight it; since it was true, and I told him I would just take whatever punishment they felt was necessary and appropriate.
 
After spilling my guts and getting his advice, Captain Mathieu and I both stood up, and he walked over to me, put his arm around my shoulders and said, “John, I know you must love this kid, and I know, in your heart you felt you were doing the right thing, and to tell ya the truth, hell, I might have done the same if I was in that same situation, it’s a tough call. There was a few times, back when I walked a beat, that I did let someone go, because I knew they weren’t really bad people and no one would be harmed. I am going to miss you around here, we all are, so you take care of yourself in the mean time and remember this, me and the team are behind you 300 percent!”
 
I said, “Thanks Cap, I really do appreciate that, and be sure to tell the team how sorry I am for fucking up.” He smiled and shook my hand and said, “John, we all love you here and no one will judge you, except IAD, so when you get cleared of this shit, we’ll all share a drink and a laugh together. And, oh, by the way, I’d like to meet the kid you put so much on the line for.” I told him thanks, and said, “I would like that too, and you’ll see just how smart and great a kid he really is.” I then turned and walked out of his office, my heart very heavy.
 
Bad news, rumors, and anything involving fellow cops spreads through a police station like a California wildfire after a 6-year drought. Cops are some of the most gossipy persons on earth. I think it’s because we all work so closely together. We can’t help but get involved in each others lives, even more so than in most other professions, and we pretty much only trust other cops.
 
All my team members were waiting outside Cap’s office with sad looks on their faces. Hell, they looked like kids whose first pet just died. It looks like I was going to get the chance to tell the team on my own how sorry I was. It tore me up to know I had let the team down, but they all came over and shook my hand and wished me well. We exchanged hugs and it made me feel good to know that they were all there to support me, and not angry with me, as I feared.
 
My partner, Jaime Solis, a short, stocky Mexican, and one of the meanest motherfuckers on the streets, said, “Juanito, is it true?” I said, “Yeah, Jaime, I don’t know what you’ve heard, but I’ll tell you all about it.” “Ay dios mio,” he said.
 
We walked over to the coffee machine, and I bought us both a cup of what they call coffee, the shit smelled like deer piss and tasted like mud, but that’s what cops drink, and we went into one of the interrogation “Conference” rooms. I told my partner the whole story, and sadly I was starting to get used to telling the story at this point.
 
Jaime looked at me and with big sad eyes and said, “Chingow! You fucked up. What are you going to do, and how can I help? If only my wife had waited one more day to have numero cuatro.” I looked down at the floor and said, “You’re right bro, I did fuck up, but its my problem, and there’s not much you can do to help anyway, but thanks for asking, except ya can keep backing me up, like you always have.” He smiled and said, “You bendejo, at least when you do it, you go all the way, huh? You know I got your back brotha.” I laughed and said, “Yeah, you got that right. You know when I do something I go all the way, no half assed shit for me.” We laughed and hugged and I asked Jaime to if he could drive me home now. He said, “Sure partner, anywhere ya wanna go.”
 
Chapter 6--John tells Larry the bad news
 
I knew Larry would not be pleased with this turn of events. I was right.
 
Larry was standing at the door as I walked up the steps from the sidewalk. He must have noticed I wasn’t driving my plain car, since they confiscated that too.
 
“Daddy, what’s wrong?” he asked in a small trembling voice.
 
I looked at his beautiful face and saw that he could sense something was terribly wrong, since he looked as if he were about to break into sobs at any moment.
 
“Hey boy, what makes you think something’s wrong,” I said, smiling and trying to hide the fact that I felt so bad.
 
Larry started to stammer and said, “How come you got a ride home, where’s your car?” I told him I would tell him all about it after we had some dinner and a couple of drinks.” He gave me a small scowl and said, “OK dad, you’re the boss.” “That’s my good boy,” I said and I patted him on the ass and told him to get dressed up, we were going out to eat tonight. “Woo Hoo! Daddy is taking me out!”
 
We went out to one of the best Gay and straight lounge restaurants in town, the Paradise Café, a nice little place on Broadway in the gay business district part of town. It was in a very old building that had probably seen many different types of businesses in its lifetime. It has live entertainment (a piano) and a fantastic menu too, and was just walking distance from our home.
 
We ate a big meal and then went home, a little tipsy from too much wine and both of us filled to the gunnels, and I then sat him down to tell him the news.
 
“Larry, I have a bit of bad news that concerns your mother and me,” I said. He shot me a look of disgust and said, “what about the bitch, what did she do now, as if I even give a shit about her.”
 
I told him, “Boy, you remember the night I found you in the alley?” He nodded and said, “Yeah daddy, like it was yesterday, it was the best and worst day of my whole life up to that point and I could never forget it.”
 
“Well Larry, we were not alone in that alley, someone was watching us, and he just happened to be a friend of your mom’s.” “Oh my God, it was my dealer, that fucking nigger Lance wasn’t it?”
 
One thing about Larry, he never minced words, what was on his mind came right out of his mouth with no pauses in between. “Yeah, you hit it right on the head, and there’s more too.” I said.
 
“Oh no daddy, what happened, how did you find out?” “I’m getting to that,” I said.
 
I told Larry everything that happened to me that day, and how the IA was gonna have my tits in a ringer for sure. He was very angry. “How can that bitch do this to us,” he screamed at me. “Why can’t she just die and leave us alone, I hate her so fucking much.” and he started to cry.
 
“Boy,” I said to him sternly, “you can’t do anything about it now, and we just have to let this play out and see what happens. There’s no use in you getting yourself all upset and angry over this. I knew that something like this might happen the moment I brought you home.” I hugged him tightly and said, “Larry, you know I love you more than anything in the world, and I wouldn’t change a thing.”
 
He smiled at me, “Thanks daddy.” And I said, “We’ll get through this, I made my bed and now I have to sleep in it.” He laughed and said, “I made OUR bed.” And I chuckled for a minute and told him, “The point is, they can’t kill me, and I’m sure they won’t fire me, so we’ll just wait and see what happens, OK?”
 
He sighed loudly and said, “OK daddy, but I am worried about you.” I said, “I appreciate that kid, but I don’t want you to worry about me, you have enough to worry about.” He sighed again, “OK daddy.” “Now let’s get to bed.” I ordered.
 
I just stood there as he undressed, watching him. His body is so supple and smooth, he’s not very hairy, and what hair he does have looks like it has been trimmed neatly, and that’s natural too. He had a very nice tan, and I loved the way his pubic hair just showed a little bit over the top of his briefs. It really turned me on. So did watching him get undressed.
 
I’m not sure if it was the wine, or the relief of finally getting everything at work out in the open, but I was very horny and needed to make love to him. Watching him undress only made it worse, and I was getting a hard-on that could scratch glass.
 
He noticed me looking at him, and also noticed how hard I was and he got a big grin on his face and slowed down stripping off his clothes, he knew exactly how to get me excited, and never missed an opportunity, and tonight was no different.
 
We did all the things we usually do, except I was probably a little rougher with him than usual. But he didn’t mind that, he liked it rough.
 
We finally were both completely spent and laid there on the bed, he with his head on my chest, stroking my chest hair and me with my hand rubbing his soft round ass. He looked into my eyes and said, “Daddy, are you going to be OK?” I looked down into his beautiful blue eyes and said, “yes boy, everything’s gonna be just fine.” But I wasn’t sure if I was telling him the truth or not. He said, “OK dad, just checking.” We then both slept hard for the rest of the night. I must have worked him pretty hard because he never even moved the entire night.
 
Chapter 7--The Review Board’s Determination
 
“This board of review is being conducted according to the rules and regulations of Article 12 of the Department’s Policy and Procedure’s Manual and the applicable city, county, and Federal statutes governing police misconduct, and is being transcribed for permanent records, the following persons in attendance at this hearing are as follows, Members of the Review Board present are myself, Lieutenant Ken Marshall, Captain Adam Penny, Captain Mark Goodson, Sergeants Dixon and Crivitz ” stated Lieutenant Marshall in a flat monotone.
 
“Also in attendance are the accused, Detective First Grade John Sims, Detective Sims’ Attorney, Mr. Kyle Lowe, and Detective Sims’ Supervisor, Captain Mark Mathieu. Also in attendance is Court Reporter, Ms. Ann Stevens, transcribing. All parties present have been sworn in and are aware that any false statements made will be prosecuted under penalty of perjury, to the fullest extent of the law.”
 
Lieutenant Marshall continued, “Charges have been brought against Detective First Grade John Sims, PID #5654, by this Board of Review as a result of claims of misconduct reported to the Department on or about February, 3rd of this same year. The investigation revealed, and Detectives Sims’ own statements have confirmed the accusations brought against him by citizens Sara James and Lance Bird to be true and correct.”
 
Marshall continued, “The investigators present have determined and concluded that Detective Sims has been found guilty in Violation of the Peace Offices Standards of Training, specifically regarding the articles of misconduct under color of authority, and also dereliction of duty, as well as Federal and State laws.”
 
He then went on to read the charges and claims and asked my attorney Kyle, if everything was in order. Both Kyle and I acknowledged that it was.
 
Lieutenant Marshall continued, “Detective Sims, do you have any final statement you would like to make a part of the record?” I looked down at my shoes and said “No sir.”
 
The lieutenant then said that the board would adjourn to consider its course of action and said that we could wait in the hallway until we were called back in for the Board’s determination.
 
Almost two hours later, Sergeant Dixon came out and told Kyle and I, and Captain Mathieu that the board was ready to see us, and we re-entered the room.
 
“Welcome back gentlemen,” said Lieutenant Marshall, “please be seated.”
 
Kyle sat down on one side of me and Cap sat on the other side across from the board members and my heart began to pound in my chest. Here it was. The axe was about to fall. Beads of perspiration began to appear on my brow and my stomach was doing back flips like an Olympic gymnast trying to score all tens.
 
Marshall began, “The board has reached its determination as to the matter of Detective Sims…” I grimaced and a chill ran down my spine. I just kept thinking of Larry and what we would do if I lost my job. “It is our decision that Detective Sims be demoted to Sergeant and be re-assigned to the Patrol Division. He will resume duty as soon as the Patrol Commander can place him. He will also have his pay reduced accordingly. Considering his qualifications, and the recommendations of his peers and supervisors, the board has decided to be lenient in its reprimand of Detective, now Sergeant Sims. Having considered all the facts in this case, we believe that leniency is an appropriate response.”
 
“Sergeant Sims, the board wishes to acknowledge, for the record, that from the first day you were employed by this department, until this incident, your record has been unblemished, and it is our hope that this will be the only blemish on that record. You are an outstanding officer and we hope this doesn’t affect your attitude and determination to continue doing an outstanding job. This meeting is now adjourned.”
 
I flushed, and barely croaked out the words, “Thank you, Sirs and Ma’am.”
 
They all stood up and shook my hand and smiled at me. I was numb. I couldn’t believe I had gotten off so easily. The Gods had smiled on me today.
 
We exited the room and Kyle looked at me and said, “You really dodged a bullet this time buddy.” I replied, “Yeah, I sure did. I can’t believe it. Thanks for being here for me Kyle, I really appreciate it.” Kyle gave me a pat on the back and said, “Anytime, good luck Sergeant,” and he just walked away, leaving me reeling.
 
Captain Mathieu also patted me on the back, smiled, and shook my hand and said, “John, you are one of the luckiest dogs I know. Good luck and we’ll miss you in C-Cat, but I know you’ll be back soon. Just be careful, OK?” I assured him I would and thanked him for all his support and for being such a good friend.
 
“Let’s get together and have that drink soon, and bring that kid of yours too.” He said before turning to walk away.
 
I drove home with a big-ass grin on my face like a crack whore with two fifty-dollar bills stuffed in my bra. I couldn’t wait to tell Larry the good news.
 
I reached our home and drove in the driveway, got out of my truck and walked to the front door and there was Larry, as usual, already waiting at the door for me. 
 
When he was home, he always listened for me to drive in and was always there to give me a big hug and kiss at the door, in front of the neighbors and all.
 
I kissed Larry hard, and hugged him, just as hard, and he started to smile the smile I loved so much, when he noticed that I was smiling.
 
“It looks like things must’ve gone good, huh daddy?” He said in a meek tone. “Yes Larry, damn good indeed. Let me tell ya all about it, but first, I need a drink.” I said.
 
I opened a bottle of champagne that I had in the refrigerator and we toasted to me still having a job as I told him what happened. I don’t think we had ever been this happy.
 
We finished the bottle and then undressed each other.
 
Larry was very emphatic that I do everything I wanted to do to him tonight, because this was my special night. I said, “Good boy, now, down on your knees.”
 
“Your wish is my command, daddy.” He said with a smile, as he proceeded to suck the living daylights out of me.
 
We made love all night long, like it was the very first time and fell asleep in our usual positions with his head on my chest and my hand on his ass.
 
Chapter 8-Back in uniform and Larry’s surprise
 
Working the streets is never an easy job; no job a cop does is easy, but on the streets, in a marked patrol car, is one of the more dangerous ones. There is no such thing as a “routine” traffic stop.
 
Patrol cars are not armored, and though I always wear my Kevlar vest, I have to be extra careful at all times. They don’t make Kevlar hats and collars. I had put away a lot of offenders, and as soon as I hit the streets all the parolees knew about it.
 
Just like cops only trust other cops, criminals usually only trust one another, and the word got around as fast as a Catholic schoolgirl on her graduatio
