Why his son left him, why he run. The answer was clear, Ken left because of him, Ken hated him by all his heart. Sheriff became very evil after all, and days were passing by and he was becoming more and more evil. Everyone wanted to kill him but they couldn’t do it, sheriff was guy who lost his son.

July 13, 1910, El Paso, Texas, Sheriff’s house. Big Sanders standing next to mirror staring at himself. He was staring at himself for 20 years all day and asking himself only one question – “why”. As years was passing and he was becoming more and more aggressive, paranoiac and evil. On this day he already killed or prisoned hundreds of citizens, El Paso’s citizens were shocked and they send letter to Texas government to do something about Sheriff. 20 years, 20 years Sheriff was always drunk and doing bad things.  Government must do something.

July 13, 1920, El Paso, Texas, Sheriff’s house. Big Sanders standing next to mirror staring at himself. He was staring at himself for 30 years all day and asking himself only one question – “why”. This was the date when Texas government decided to do something with him and they decided to send him home for his living time. The government sends new sheriff in town. Old sheriff was out of his lifetime job and all day he was drinking more and more. Everyone forget about him, old sheriff was all alone with his thoughts in his big and lonely house.

November 13, 1923, El Paso, Texas, Sheriff’s house. Big Sanders standing next to mirror staring at himself. He was staring at himself for 30 years all day and asking himself only one question – “why”. It was last time when he asked this question to him, last time. Big Sanders asked this question to him, took bottle of wine and went to his lost child’s room. He wanted to take suicide in Ken’s room but when he opened door he was shocked, some man was lying on Ken’s bed. Big Sanders was shocked and became aggressive and aimed gun, and said – “Who are you and why are you laying on my lost child’s bed”… When he said it, that unknown man already opened eyes and he had shocked face. Big Sanders repeated question with angry voice. Suddenly that unknown man said: “You! Father!” Old Sheriff put gun down… -Who are you? – said Big Sanders. -Father! Father! Oh no! How?! – said that unknown man and he stood up. -Who are you! – Repeated Big Sanders and he aimed gun to that man again. -Father! Damn you, you are alive! How old are you, you demon! -Ken? -YES! I’m Ken. But how did I got here? -Ken! I was waiting for you! I was missing you so much. How you have grown up!-No! I died! And this is my hell! -WHAT?! You are alive. Tell me what happened.

Ken explained everything to his father, he told him everything about his life in England, about his detective and police career, about Federico, about Johnny, oh Johnny and about his lost pregnant wife. Ken told him that he was already 52 years old. Big Sanders was shocked, father was about 70 years or above he already missed counting his years. But Ken, oh Ken. He was still shocked, how he get here? Or why here? All he wanted was to find Johnny and Castellos and to kill them, Ken was angry; he just wanted to kill them.

December 13, 1923, El Paso, Texas, Sheriff’s house. In Sheriff’s house there are Big Sanders, Ken, new sheriff Douglas and Texas governments two representative – William and Raymond. They were discussing future of Ken. It was still unknown about Ken, was he Ken or not. They all were waiting for letter from England, Paddington. The letter came after 3 hour of waiting. Some guy took letter to them, Raymond as he was number one representative of Texas government, opened the letter and read:

“We, South Paddington’s Police Department SPD claimed that the person in photo (which you, Texas Government TG send) is Ken Sanders, detective and favorite retired and now detective policeman, from Texas, El Paso, now living in South Paddington. As we claimed that he is Ken Sanders, we want to know how he got in Texas, El Paso, from mission in England, Whitby. We (SPD) immediately want him to come back in England, South Paddington for explanation. We (SPD) are giving him 1 month to arrive here and explain everything.”

-My son is living, my son is living, my son is living! Again! Again! – cried out Big Sanders and he fall down. -Father! – cried Ken. -Sir, his heart, his heart stopped.
