what about Benji

Maxie was elated that Katy was practically back to normal now after having the baby. She'd had a few weeks to recover. Gracie was doing great. Of course, Katy was still a bit sad about her cousin's departure to Spain.

She wanted to visit. "I need to be there for him." She told Maxie as they took over the parlor as their own these days.

"Not, anytime soon." Maxie advised. No way, was he going. He didn't dare want to end up in a Spanish prison ever again. "I'm sorry, but he got himself into this, you know, Kate, really we have to let this go."

But she wouldn't. According to her, he was the only family she had left.

"And what of us? What's Gracie and me to you?" Maxi glared at her. He was beginning to think she'd been madly  in love with her cousin at one time. What if she was still in love with Benji? He knew Benji had Simon, and Benji had cut off Simon as it was. "I don't think he wants you in his life right now Katy. And wouldn't it be just as well for us to send packages or the like to show him we still care."

She was teary eyed. Gracie was at least a sleep. Maxie could think of plenty they could be doing. He put his arm around Katy. He kissed her cheek. If only they could go for a walk in the park, it didn't have to be in the sexual nature. He wanted to see her happy. He did, but just then the doorbell rang.

"Who could that be?" Her head shot up as if maybe they'd pardon Benji and he was back.

"Dunno." Maxie supposed he'd have to answer it.
