He talked of going back to New Orleans after all. He can get his job back at Belle Chasse, and he probably wouldn't have much trouble finding a place to stay if he didn't rely on his family. Perhaps, I told him, that would be a better idea than coming to OKC. I could join him there later, once he gets re-established.
Saon told me that he's paying for his divorce from Michele this week. He just wants to get it out of the way so he can get out of there. In exchange, Michele agreed to drive Saon and his dog, Blue, to Hattiesburg, MS, where his cousin David lives. David agreed to take Blue until such time that Saon could take the dog back.
Things seem to be jelling on Saon's end. I only hope that he is indeed sincere about resuming our lives together. If I go back to New Orleans, it's to stay, no matter what happens.
