We continued to drive south.

 

Back to Chicago.

 

Back to our home.

 

Canada's air's much sweeter than the city, but I didn't notice it.

 

I was too busy noticing Benny.

 

Noticing his silence.

 

Noticing how he'd look at me and then look away.

 

Noticing the sound of my own voice.

 

As I drove I talked.

 

As I talked I drove.

 

Still he said nothing.

 

Still he just sat there.

 

Looking at me.

 

Watching me.

 

A slight frown between his eyes.

 

His head on one side.

 

I could see he was trying to

 

"Ray?"

 

One word.

 

The sweetest sound I'd ever heard.

 

 

Quietening Benny is the sequel to this story.
