“I'm going to call my mate in the Police now,” said Michael. “Is that OK?”
Luigi nodded. Cody didn't speak.
“Hey, Colin—Sorry to call so early in the morning—Yeah I can hear Julia yelling in the background—What's wrong with her?—That's no good. Something I've got to look forward to. Mate, I've got somebody here who needs to talk to you urgently.—Yeah.—Yeah, it's important, very important—I mean it Colin, ya drongo.—In fifteen?—Yeah. I'll see you there.”
He snapped his phone closed and said, “OK, we'll meet him at the police station in fifteen minutes. He's just dealing with his daughter Julia who's been sick all night. So he's helping his wife with the kids and stuff.”
Luigi was still sitting next to Cody. Cody slumped even further and Luigi squeezed his hand.
“Hey, Coads, it'll be OK. I'll be with you.” He looked at Michael.
“Yeah. I'll stay with you too. And Colin … he's a good bloke. He's not like the old policemen, who're a homophobic bunch of wankers. He won't judge you, Cody. Remember, you're the victim here, and he'll see it that way too. He's a mate of mine. He's in our footy club and cricket club and he's a top bloke, really. The problem will come, if it comes, when the detectives and the higher-ups arrive. And just in case, I'm going to involve my dad.”
