Evan Malone liked the midnight shift. 12 am to 8 am along a stretch of Pacific Coast Highway right at the border of Malibu. It was never dull, and the arrests and citations were easy and built up his record. Most of the time he was pulling over rich drunk fucks in their BMWs, Porches, and Mercedes. Half the time they had hookers or call girls in the front seat, and when he looked inside he’d catch an unwelcome glimpse of their cocks halfway out of their flies. He pulled over producers who tried to bribe him, trophy wives who tried to seduce him, lawyers high on drugs, famous actors with underage girls or the occasional tranny. He’d often told his ex-girlfriend he could write a bestseller on the sexual intrigues of rich LA.

The hours between 4 and 8 am were usually quiet, and he’d sit in his cruiser looking up at the lights on the hills, listening to the ocean and planning his future. Sometimes he tuned into the chatter on the police radio, thinking “Better them than me.” He’d worked the worst parts of the city for too many years as a rookie and had had enough of it. He was more than happy to babysit the city’s elite if it meant he never had to worry about getting shot.

He hadn’t pulled anyone one over for an hour on a beautiful, balmy Friday night when the dusty blue Porsche clocked in at 85 mph. Holy shit. It was brand new, with the dealers’ tags still on it, and if he didn’t pull it over it would soon be $120,000 of worthless metal wrapped around a telephone pole. He felt adrenaline surge through him as he turned on lights and sirens. Curiosity as well as excitement pumped through his body. What would it be—another actor? A coked up plastic surgeon?

It took a good minute for the driver to notice him and stop. Evan stepped out of the car, his right hand on his holster.

He saw the window unrolling as he approached. He checked his radio—it was 4:10 a.m. The hand at the window was manicured, deeply tanned and Evan saw a heavy silver Rolex. His senses heightened, as soon as he got close Evan smelled the alcohol, along with a deep whiff of, what was it, gardenias? There was a bouquet of flowers crumpled in the passenger seat. It was a lush, heavy, and sexy scent—something he was sure he’d smelled once in his ex’s apartment.

“License and registration, please.”

“Officer,” came a slightly slurred voice, “This is a new—”

“You have your paperwork?” Evan interrupted him. “Pink slip?”

“Yes, uh. . .” the man mumbled as he foraged in the glove compartment.

“I’m going to need you to step out of the car,” Evan ordered. At 6’1 or so, the man was several inches taller than Evan, and just as built.

“Turn around.” The man obediently did as he was told and passively held his hands behind him. Well this was different. No resistance, no asshole comments. He acted like he knew he’d done something bad. Evan held onto one strong, warm forearm as he slipped on the cuffs. It wasn’t till he heard the click that he glanced up and saw a handsome face with red-rimmed blue eyes, dirty blond hair, and two days thick growth of beard.

Evan ran the check on the man’s information, looking for old tag numbers. Craig Symons, 30, unmarried, address in Malibu, no record, no citations or arrests. Well, he might have both now.

This guy just reeked of money. It wasn’t only his car. It was the perfect haircut and teeth, the personal trainer body, the unique cologne, the expensive linen shirt and casually torn jeans. He had everything but the arrogant attitude. On the contrary, he seemed utterly defeated and depressed. Evan wondered if this had been some kind of unconscious suicide run.

As he wrote out the speeding ticket, he suddenly felt like someone was standing behind him—as if a mouth was softly breathing on his neck or some unseen presence was sensing his every thought. He felt the hairs on the back of his neck stand up and a familiar trickle of excitement creep down his spine. He recognized that tingling feeling; it could only mean that this guy was gay. Hmmm, he wouldn’t have thought so. He was very good-looking, gorgeous even, but nothing in his manner or voice would have suggested it. But Evan knew the meaning of the prickling sensation down his back; he only got that vibe when he was around gay men.

It didn’t bother him. Evan had something of a soft spot for gays. He didn’t know why. Perhaps because his father was such a homophobe. Perhaps because he hated assholes so much—wife beaters, rapists, thugs, arrogant pricks who thought they were above the law. No, he had no problem with gays. He found it odd that they seemed to affect him in this way, but he didn’t think too much of it.

Evan grabbed the portable breathalyzer and got back out of the cruiser. As he approached the man, the vibe got stronger. Electrical sensations emanated from the back of his head and traveled down his whole body. Craig Symons was leaning casually against his car, one leg bent at the knee, his thighs spread, watching him intently. Evan noticed his eyes travel down İstanbul Escort his body to his thighs and crotch, and back up to his face.

It was a strangely intimate situation all of a sudden. The mist coming off the ocean was swirling around, it was incredibly quiet, and the odor of gardenias was saturating the air. When he undid the cuffs his hands grazed firm ass cheeks, and something warm and exciting pulsed in his stomach when he touched him.

“Thanks,” Symons said softly. “I didn’t realize I was going so fast.”

“Could you blow into this for me, please?” Evan ordered him.

“Oh yeah, sure . . . wait, how do I do it?”

Evan gently helped him with the device. Mr. Symons—Craig—was out of it, but Evan didn’t think he was that drunk, just mentally lost. “Put your mouth over that and blow. Right.” Craig continued to look at him as his mouth covered the disposable tube. Evan was completely unaware of the fact that he gazed into his blue eyes much longer than necessary, though it was not lost on Craig.

Evan removed the meter and read it. It was just at the edge of the legal limit. The numbers flashed on and off below and then rose up before falling again.

In any other situation he would have made the arrest, but he didn’t. Craig seemed on his last leg and he decided to cut him a break.

“All right Mr. Symons,” he said, “I’m citing you for excessive speed and reckless endangerment. Do you mind if I ask what the hurry was?”

“Just . . . had a bad night.” No shit. He’d obviously been crying. Evan thought about the crumpled bouquet. Some kind of lover’s spat?

“Well try not to make it any worse.”

“What about that?”

Evan glanced at the breathalyzer and continued to write. “You’re just barely under the legal limit. I’m letting you off with a warning this time. I’m noting it in your record. If it happens again, you’ll be arrested.”

Craig took the ticket and got ready to leave.

“Thanks, I really appreciate this, Officer . . .?”


“Where do you work? I mean, what station? Santa Monica?”

“That’s right. Now I’d appreciate it if you drove 35 up to Malibu. The whole way.”

“Yeah,” he sighed. Evan was certain now this has been some kind of act of self-destruction. The idea of going home seemed to fill him with despair.

As Evan watched the taillights disappear, he decided on impulse to tail him home. The last thing he wanted was to read about a tragic accident the next morning. His thoughts lingered on the stranger, attracted to him in an abstract way. What does someone have to do to get that kind of money? And what could have been so bad to make it all worthless? This was a new one—seeing a gay man’s heartbreak up close. What a strange job.

In the Porsche, Craig Symons saw the cop car following him. It vaguely registered that it was a nice thing to do. Funny it would be a hot cop to stop him on this night of all nights. When he finally pulled into his private driveway he flashed his lights. Thank you, he silently said to himself. You probably saved my life.


A week later, Evan was filling out paperwork at his desk when he got buzzed by the secretary.

“Evan Malone. How can I help you?

“Officer. This is Craig Symons calling.”


“Symons. You pulled me over last week. PCH. Blue Porsche?”

“Ahh, right, right. What can I do for you?”

“Well, I wanted to thank you, again. For, uh . . . not turning me in.”

“No need. How’d you find me here?”

“You said you worked in Santa Monica.”

“Right. Well . . . thank you. Appreciate the call.”

“Wait. I was wondering . . . I just thought I’d mention it . . . I’m having a little party this weekend. I was wondering if you’d like to come. I’d like to thank you in person.”

“There’s no need for that.”

“Well I’d like to extend the invitation in any case. I think you have my address?”

“Yes, but—”

“Good. 8:00 or so, Saturday. Hope to see you.”

Evan hung up the phone, perplexed, and got back to work. One day out of the work week he was stuck at his desk filling out reports. It was a Thursday and very quiet. As he filled out form after form on the computer, he found his thoughts drifting back and forth between his ex, Amy, on the one hand, and Craig Symons’s invitation on the other. It was strange timing that this should just happen right at this moment.

He and Amy had split for one reason—because Evan didn’t want to commit and get married. Amy had been very very hurt. Devastated. They’d been together for five years, including living together for the last two. Their relationship was great. That wasn’t the problem. But things were rolling along, they were both 29, and Amy kept up the pressure, finally giving him an ultimatum. She didn’t want to waste any more time on something that didn’t have a future, and in the end Evan just had to state bluntly, “I don’t think it does.” She was crushed, the more so because he couldn’t Bayan Escort give her a good reason. He didn’t even know himself. It was time to settle down and he just didn’t want to. It wasn’t that he wanted to date other women; he didn’t. The only thing he told himself, but not her, was “I want to keep my options open.” Open for what? What did he want? Amy had left a month ago, and all he’d done was work out and spend a lot of time at the beach. Or just lie in bed, thinking.

He thought about his job a lot. Doing what he did, Evan caught glimpses into the vast life of Los Angeles he never would know otherwise. There was so much more out there and he wasn’t ready to close it all off for good. He knew it sounded silly. He had nothing more to offer than that—a vague longing, a persistent sense that he wanted something different, at least to experience if not have.

And now, just like that, he gets this invitation out of the blue. It was almost as if he’d been waiting for it, or expecting it to happen. But a gay dude?

He clicked off the police site and did a little googling. Craig Andrew Symons was an entertainment lawyer in private practice. He couldn’t find much more than that he didn’t already know, aside from a few pictures of him at studio events looking glamorous. He stared and stared into his computer screen. A magical feeling seemed to emanate from Craig Symons’s face in the pictures. He looked happier than Evan had ever remembered being, in a secret, special way that was out of his reach, that he’d never known himself. And then he remembered the devastated man he’d pulled over on PCH. Evan had never known that kind of despair, either. He wondered about it. He felt pulled towards this man’s life and he couldn’t deny he was intrigued by the invitation. Why not?

He was still gazing at the handsome blond face on his computer screen when he felt the vibe and eyes on the back of his neck, stronger than ever. He instantly clicked to his desktop and looked guiltily over his shoulder, expecting to see Andy, the only gay cop he knew about. But no one was there.

After work in the morning he headed to his gym and changed into an old Los Angeles Police Academy t-shirt and sweats. It was a sweaty muscle gym full of men, hardy any women, and known locally as something of a gay meat market. Evan always got the vibe in there, though there was no mystery about it. Male eyes were blatantly checking him out anytime he went in. He didn’t mind. It was a great place, and very convenient.

He was aware of the looks, but he had no idea that he was a major topic of gossip and lust for many regulars. The hot cop who came in every day had a perfect body and a sweet, handsome face with huge brown eyes. There was that allure of power and potential domination, and furthermore his sexuality was a bit of an enigma. Someone figured out he’d had a girlfriend at one point; others swore he was gay.

Evan would have been surprised and flattered to know how many times he’d been the topic of conversation at clubs and parties. In fact he would take that as a personal point of pride, since he knew how much it would bug his father.

As Evan pounded out five miles on the treadmill, he thought about his dad. Michael Malone was a very high-ranking police captain in the LAPD and as far as Evan was concerned, a fucking asshole. He hated his father. He was the very epitome of an asshole. A real “man’s man.” He smiled to himself when he wondered what his dad would think of him taking up Craig Symons on his offer. That settled it. He was going. He’d take his motorcycle up and see how the better half lived in Malibu.


Evan set out at 8:30 on Saturday. Los Angeles could be the most hideous, smog-filled wasteland in the daytime, but at times like this, it became the most magical place on earth—timeless, dreamlike and at one with nature. As soon as the sun went down and traffic slowed up, there was an incredible stillness and quiet from the desert. The air was clear and colors seemed brighter, the lights from the valley more sparkling and vibrant. It was still slightly dusk as he zoomed up PCH and the sky was glowing in lavender and turquoise blending into the blue-green ocean.

Evan loved his bike. It was his one indulgence, his one toy. He fucking loved the sense of power and freedom. He’d had his own bike since the moment he got a license, and going on long solo rides was his greatest pleasure and the best therapy. As a teenager it was how he had escaped his father. He loved the feeling of total control over the massive machine between his legs, the way it responded to his slightest touch. He loved the mobility and independence. It was always how he liked to travel in LA. He flew up PCH zipping in and out of traffic, until he found a little dirt side road that led up a seaside cliff to his destination. He arrived at the glass and chrome house exhilarated and excited.

It was a beautiful place—modernistic, minimal, and transparent to the elements. He saw people milling Eskort about inside and outside on a deck with a pool as he pulled up. He was just taking off his helmet when he saw Craig Symons walking towards him.

He’d shaved since the last time he saw him and as he flashed a smile, Evan was struck by that aura of glamor he’d seen in his photos. This was one attractive man. More than handsome, he was simply beautiful, there was no other word for it, with a blend of feminine and masculine features. Anyone would think so.

Evan was still straddling his bike as Craig touched it. “Nice ride.”

“Thanks. You have a nice place here.”

“Ah, yeah, I love it. Glad you could make it . . . Officer . . .?”

Evan smiled and held out his hand, “Evan.”

Craig grasped it. “Thanks for coming, Evan. I know this is a little out of the blue.”

“No, I’m glad. It’s different. Thanks for inviting me.”

Craig moved a little closer to him. “Look, I really do want to thank you for the other night.”

“No problem. You seem like you’re, uh . . . doing better.”

Craig averted his eyes and seemed embarrassed. “It was a bad night. But come in. Have a drink, relax.”


Walking into the house, Evan felt the light pressure of Craig’s hand on his back. It was just the slightest touch, but it was hot and electric. He felt his whole body prickle with excitement.

Craig kept his hand on his lower back as he steered him through the crowd to the bar area. His “little party” was actually huge. There must have been well over fifty people—mostly men, and mostly gay, but some women. One thing for sure, they were all loaded. This was a very rich crowd. Evan felt a bit out of place in his boots and leather jacket. He could see every eye on them as they walked in together, checking him out.

Craig found the bar and drew him close to it. Evan noticed trays of sushi and other catered food.

“So, a cocktail? What do you like? Or maybe you’d prefer a beer.” Craig gave him a tiny wink.

“Uh . . . yeah, beer is fine.”

“You got it.”

“So what’s the occasion?” he asked him. “Anything special?”

“No, not really. Kind of an end of the summer sort of thing. Do you surf?”

“Yeah, actually, I do. I’m pretty much of a beach rat. I grew up in Laguna, so . . . “

“Well maybe we should sometime. We have a few good weeks left. But only if you promise to take me on your bike sometime.”

Evan smiled. “You like to ride?”

“Never have. But I’ve always wanted to. I’d love it if you’d show me.”

“All right.” What it about him? Evan felt pulled into his orbit. He had visions of Craig holding him tightly from behind as he took one of his favorite trips, and then spending a whole day together.

Craig handed him a beer and touched his hand. “Thanks for coming, Evan. I’m glad you could make it.”

They exchanged a look, and Evan was just about to say something when a crowd descended on Craig.


It was a loud bunch of guys—Evan knew the type. These were the trust fund babies he pulled over all the time. Rich, arrogant, spoiled, and entitled. They didn’t give him the time of day, but pulled Craig into their raucous group.

“You don’t mind if we steal him, do you?”

Before he knew it he was standing alone with his beer while Craig became the center of attention of a little mob. Evan couldn’t help watching him. He was laughing and entertaining them with some private anecdote. Craig’s charisma made everyone around him seem special and exciting. His beauty was riveting. Evan walked around a little bit but couldn’t take his eyes off him.

He had moved towards the doorway leading out to the patio when he overheard voices—gossipy male voices trying to be discrete.

“So who’s the hottie in the leather jacket?”

Evan heard a little snort of contempt. “Some cop Craig picked up.”

“What’s he doing here?”

“What do you think? You know Craig. He always likes to fuck around when he’s depressed.”

“Oh, that. Jesus—fucking Jason Jones? That arrogant shit?”

“It’s his type, you know that.”

“What—unavailable dicks?”

Evan heard the other guy laugh. “Is someone jealous?”

“Everyone knows Jason is a prick. He’s fucked half of West Hollywood.”

“Yes well our little Craigy really fell for him.”

“‘Our little Craigy’ has major Daddy issues. I can’t believe he doesn’t see it. He 30. Get over it.”

“You just wish it was you.”

The other guy sighed. “He looks so hot tonight.”

“He always looks hot.”

“A fucking cop?!”

Evan moved outside to the patio and stood looking at the gorgeous view, thinking. Something about the overheard conversation chimed within his unconscious and made him even more interested in Craig. A man with “Daddy issues”? The idea burrowed down into his own mind, sending off a rippling explosion. Daddy. Evan then immediately wondered what this Jason dude was like. Was he behind the scene of the other night?

“It’s nice out here, isn’t it?”

Evan turned around at the female voice. A pretty blond woman about his age was standing next to him.

“Yeah . . . I enjoyed the ride up here.”

“You’re the cop, right?”
