He decided that perhaps he should take a more polite approach and see if that could get him what he wanted. “I’m sorry if I startled you. It was just important that I recover that cat.”
The cat hopped down from the back of the couch to just in front of Chel. “I don’t think she likes you that much.” The girl commented, noting how the cat’s eyes were narrowed to green slits and her ears were laid almost completely flat against her head.
“Yeah, that die never did, always running off.” Lexx stated, more to himself than Chel, while looking pointedly at the cat.
