THUNDER IN THE NIGHT
All eyes were on Luis as he began to speak. "I have seen this man in
town. He was with another. They looked at Paul's car in a strange way,
I remembered them."
Both Deputy Malone and Agent Napier spoke at once, "When did you see
him? Where was it? Can you describe the man he was with?"
Malone's and Napier's attention was focused on Luis. I watched him look
up and meet their gazes. There was something different about Luis. Just
a moment ago, he'd been afraid to call attention to himself. Suddenly
looked confident. Like he knew exactly what he was doing. I prayed he

McDonalds before going to San Diego. I remember them because they

truck in a strange way. It made me nervous."
Napier took charge, "What did the other man look like? Can you describe

later with some paper and pencils. He sat down at the table and

talented. My drawings look like stick figures. His sketch was
As Luis' sketch neared completion, Napier became more and more excited.
I even thought I saw a thin smile on his face.
"This is very helpful, Mr. Ebanez. I'd like to have you come down to
the Sheriff's Office to look at some photographs."
"I'd like you to come down as soon as possible. We can drive you to the
office right now and then have a deputy bring you back out here when
Luis looked up at me. Clearly he wasn't happy with the idea of being
at the Sheriff's Office.
I stepped in. "If you can give us a few minutes, Agent Napier, I'll

when you drove up."
"I don't want to put you through any trouble, Mr. Nichols." The sudden
in Napier's demeanor was amazing.
"It's no trouble. I was going to go into town this morning anyway."
Malone told us where to go at the Sheriff's Department, and then he and

saw that night. He is what you call a 'bad cop', no?"
"Yes." I lowered my head. I knew what he was saying. I was proud of
but I was afraid for him as well.

turn page after page and shake his head was sort of mind numbing.
Forty-five minutes later I was almost done with the acrid coffee when
Luis pointed at one of the mug shots. "This is the man I saw."
Napier clapped Luis on the back, "Way to go, kid. That looks just like
picture you drew for us." He turned to one of the deputies. "Run the
on this guy, will you."
"I'm on it." The deputy hustled out of the room.
I looked over at the mug shot. It was obviously the same guy that Luis
had sketched back in my kitchen.
Having made a tentative identification, Luis's usefulness to the cops
over. We found ourselves standing in the parking lot outside the
Department less than five minutes later.
On the way back out to Rancho del Abuelo I complimented Luis on his
drawing abilities and asked if he'd ever had any art training. He said
always liked drawing, but he'd never gotten any formal instruction in
art. I decided right then that when we got back to San Diego, we'd go
to an art
supply store and get him outfitted with some sketch pads and pencils
then see about some private lessons. The kid had real talent. The more
I learned about him the more special he was becoming to me.
Back at the house, Luis put together some sandwiches for lunch while I

me that everything in the office was going just fine without me being
there. He was also impressed that Luis had found a way to identify the
for the police without exposing himself as an illegal alien.
After lunch I called Alton Stout to see how he was recovering from his
and bruised ankle where his horse had stepped on him while we were
to load her into Mac's trailer the day before. Alton relayed that the
weren't much of a problem, but that the ankle was still sore and
swollen. Juanita had been after him all day to see a doctor about it.
"I love that woman, but she can be a pure pain in the neck when she
a notion in her head like this. I think I'll go to the doc just to get
off my back."
"I'll go over to Mac's this afternoon and make sure the horses are all
fed. That way you won't have to worry about being stepped on again."
He laughed. "Damn it, Paul, you're as bad as Juanita. Give me a break."
"You go to the doctor, and make sure Boots didn't already give you a
and I'll take care of the horses. I'll talk to you tomorrow."
We hung up, and I went to look for Luis.
He was paddling around in the pool. I watched his graceful form as he
practiced various strokes. My dick started to harden as I stripped out
of my clothes
and joined Luis in the pool. We played around splashing and chasing
other. Our playing degenerated into a game of "dick tag" and it wasn't
before we were locked in a tight embrace with our erect phalluses
against one another. I helped him out of the water, and we made love

his back to meet my thrusts as I drove my tool into his love canal. We
at the same time with Luis' semen shooting up between our entwined
and my load emptying into the hot, dark reaches of his rectum.
Afterwards we took a long shower gently washing the chlorine, sunblock,
and cum from our bodies before curling up in bed and taking a long nap.
When I woke up Luis was already out of bed. I rolled over and looked at
the bedside clock. I was nearly five o'clock. I needed to get my lazy
out of bed and go over to Mac's to check on the horses like I'd
I pulled on some clothes. Luis was working in the kitchen putting meat
and vegetables into some sort of wonderful, garlicky smelling marinade.
"I need to go over to Mac's to check on the horses. Do you want to ride
over with me?"
"No. I'm working getting the dinner ready for tonight. We will have fajitas.
Tell Mac to come over and help us eat them, no."
I laughed and kissed him on the back of the neck while giving his
jean covered ass a quick goose. "I think you have the 'hots' for Deputy
He turned his head and kissed my cheek. "He is a 'hot' man. I am not
only one who think so, no?"
I winked at him as I went out the door.
Mac was just starting to feed and water the horses when I arrived. He
had changed out of his deputy's uniform and was dressed in a pair of
and an old shirt with the sleeves torn out. The muscles in his arms
as he carried the heavy bucket of feed over to the horses.
I pitched in and helped him finish. I repeated Luis's invitation to eat
dinner with us. He accepted.
He offered a cold beer. I accepted.
We sat on the porch and sipped the cold brews. Neither one of us said
anything for a long while.
Finally I broke the silence.
"How was your day?" Lame way to start a conversation.
"Man, it was a real bitch. I picked up a couple of drunks first thing
the morning. They'd been chugging 'em back all night long, and one of
puked all over the back seat of the patrol cruiser on the way to the
jail. It took me most of the rest of the morning to get the car cleaned
out. You can still smell the vomit even with the windows open."
"Does that happen often."
"Enough that I don't get sick anymore when some drunk ralphs in the
of the cruiser. Say, word's going around the Department that you and
linked the body in your barn to another bad guy."
"Ah...yeah. Napier showed Luis a picture of the dead guy, and Luis
remembered seeing him and this other dude together."
"I hear Luis drew a picture of the guy that was a dead ringer for the
shot. It sure made Napier a happy camper for the rest of the day."
"I was amazed. Luis's drawing was pretty darn good. He's got talent. I
can't even draw a straight line with a ruler."
"I know what you mean. I can't draw worth squat. Napier thinks this
be the break in the case. The guy in your barn was a known coyote. From
what I hear, the guy Luis i.d.'ed is a real bad one."
"Mac, is there any possibility that these guys are connected with the
of those ten Mexicans last weekend?"
"That's the current thinking. If we can locate this Pete Allman
the case might be solved."
"Is that the guy's name?"
"Yeah. He's a real bad customer. His arrest record spans everything
from marijuana possession to murder."
"Mac, do you think this guy Allman and the dead man, Estrada, could
had some inside help with running the illegals?"
"What do you mean?"
"What if they had another partner? Someone in law enforcement who could
have tipped them off about where INS and Border Patrol would be looking
any given night."
"Paul, that's crazy. You've been watching too many cop dramas on TV."
"Why do you say that?"
He stood and paced around on the porch. "Because I just can't imagine a
cop being involved with something like this."
"It's not just on TV, Mac. You hear about crooked cops all of the time.
For crying out loud, you can pick up any newspaper and read a story
some police officer somewhere being involved with something illegal."
"What do you mean? You think all cops are 'dirty'?"
I stood to face him. "That's not what I mean, and you know it. I think
you're over reacting here."
He moved closer and brought his face close to mine. I could see the
in his eyes. "Me over reacting? I'm not the one who's making false
allegations. I think you're over reacting."
"Maybe I am. I guess I just got a little emotional. I'm sorry, but I'm
not used to finding ten men slaughtered on my land and a couple of days
having my barn burned down with a dead body inside. Excuse me, I think
time I went home."
I turned to leave. He grabbed my arm and twisted me around to face him.
Mac was five inches taller and outweighed me by thirty-five pounds. If
it came to a fight, I was dead meat.
"Don't you just walk away from me."
I brushed his hand off my arm. "What are you going to do? Arrest me?
Put handcuffs on me?" As I was trying to act with bravado, I was
I really need to learn how to control my mouth.'
That wasn't the answer I expected. "Why because?"
"Because I'm sorry I got angry. I'm not mad at you. Believe me I could
never be mad at you."
"Well, that was a good imitation then. I still think I'd better leave."
I turned again to leave, and he grabbed my arm again. This time he

He pulled away and looked down at me, his blue eyes shining in the
twilight. "I'm not mad at you. I'm afraid for you."
Suddenly his mouth was on mine. His scent was overpowering. If that
wasn't enough, I could feel the beginnings of his arousal against my
tongue probed my mouth. I yielded.
We sank to the floor of the porch scrambling to unbutton our shirts and
pants without breaking the kiss. My hand pulled the front of his briefs
away and grasped his throbbing hardness. I gasped as his fingers closed

Mac called my name, but I slammed the big SUV into gear and floored the
gas pedal. I needed to get away.
I had just ruined everything.
