Benedict Lives!

in Tales of Kaos

Almost a year and a half after Kaos landed in the Miami Dade shelter, Benedict finally called. He didn’t call me, so I wasn’t able to ask him what the hell happened to him. He called one of the other people from the neighborhood that helped him and Kaos get to Florida back in Nov 2006.

Apparently he has been back in New York for two months. He’s living in the Bronx with his girlfriend and working as a painter. He told her he’d given Kaos to a family in Florida! She told him not to lie and told him about the time/effort/money spent to save Kaos from the shelter.

It’s a bit frustrating that he would lie about what happened to Kaos, but it is nice to know he’s alive and well. I’d pretty much given up on ever knowing what happened to him.

PS I got an email from Kaos – now Kayla’s – new family a couple weeks ago and she’s doing great. They sent video of her running around in the back yard and she looked sooooo happy. 🙂

Bizarre. Funny how things come back full circle. When the person he talked to called him on his lie, what did he say?

I’m sure he didn’t call you because he’s ashamed.

Glad to know Kayla is doing well!

Nah… if he were ashamed, or thought we knew what had happened to her, he wouldn’t have called Bettina either. I don’t know what else he said to her, but it doesn’t really matter. All that matters now is Kayla’s smiling face.
