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 talked I drove.

Quietening Benny is the sequel to this story.
