Alien Dice 27 part 3 page 09

“We’re teaching them how to talk.”
Lexx stared at the woman blankly, unable to fully comprehend what she was saying. All of his dice had been able to speak immediately after bonding.
“Why?”
“They have a capacity for it.” The woman rattled off excitedly.
Lexx glanced at the chicks. They were tiny reflections of Zeta and Epsy, likely to be troublesome and underfoot if they returned with them. They weren’t something he wanted to deal with.
“What are you going to do with them?” Chel asked, cuddling two chicks at once.
Zeta and Epsy gave Lexx the most pleading expressions they could imagine, their eyes wide and fixed on him. “Err.” Lexx murmured trying to find the right words to say.
Instead, he stated what was on his mind. “Not keeping them. Do what you want with them. They aren’t supposed to exist.”
Zeta and Epsy lowered their heads sadly, whining in a begging tone, which only annoyed Lexx.
“You knew better, Epsy.” Lexx waved a finger at the large dice, who crouched down lower, a feat for such a large creature. “Zeta’s a fool, but you knew.”
