UPDATES!! Today and next Wednesday! – Tiff
“We’re watching for the ships,” Kade called out after them, then added in a lower voice to Chel, “I will return to my ship with you once they arrive. Hopefully, it will not come to that.”
Chel nodded, watching her parents walk after Lexx. They didn’t go far before Lexx lifted his hand and formed a swirling vortex—the door appearing once again. Vic glanced over his shoulder, getting a last look at his daughter with a reflective, worried look on her face.
The door formed in an empty hallway, filling it with light. Mel stepped through it first, and Vic followed close behind, glancing down the dim hall. It was an abandoned area of their facility, close to the rooms where they had held Lexx. He would have seen them in passing.
Vic reached into his pocket and pulled out a small remote. He turned, offering it to his wife. “Kade gave this to me for the return door.” Mel took it and dropped it into her pocket. “If the unforeseen happens, you know what to do.”
“I do,” said Mel in a low, serious tone. “Let’s go.” She turned away, and they walked off in different directions.
