“No worries! Now, I'll just call the police, and ….”
The other man stared at him. “Why not?”
Cody just shook his head, unable to meet the other man's eyes.
“Look, this bastard needs to be caught. If you tell the police, they'll catch him.”
“They don't give a fuck about us!”
“They're not like they used to be.”
Cody just shook his head. Then after a long silence he mumbled, “It's so … they'll despise me. I can just see them smirking and mocking among themselves. And … oh God!” He put his head in his hands.
“I'll come with you, if you want.”
Startled, Cody looked straight at him. Their eyes met and Cody saw that he was sincere. “They'll think you're gay too.”
The other bloke shrugged. “Whatever.”
“You don't know what it's like. To know they despise you, to know that they think you're not a proper human being never mind a proper man, because you like sex with men.” Cody was staring out the car window at the faint light appearing over the eastern edge of the mountains.
“No, I don't. I'm sorry. All the same, he's not going to stop. Someone else will die. You owe it to yourself to do this.”
Cody tried to speak but he lost control of his voice. He shook his head.
“Is there someone you can call to fetch you?”
An on mobile phone appeared under his nose.
