“Yeah,” Chel sighed, turning her back to him as well. “Pretty sure my dad is watching the feed.” The thought brought a blush to her cheeks.
“Is he ever going to accept me?” Lexx asked quietly.
“He already has. He’s trying to help.” Chel reached out over the relay. Lexx joined her, shifting the world around them into a warm golden light.
“He doesn’t like me.” Lexx sat down, grumbling.
“He’s a dad, that’s what they do.” Chel came up behind Lexx, sliding her hands beneath his arms to hug him from behind. She rested her head on his shoulder for a moment, hugging him tightly. “You are dangerous to be around.”
“But, you choose to be with me?” Lexx turned his head to look at Chel.
“Yes,” Chel answered, looking him in the eyes. Those beautiful golden eyes that looked back with trust and love. Lexx smiled and leaned toward Chel to kiss her.
