‘I’m sure she has some things to tell you about herself,’  Riley suggested, ‘What do you really know about Chel?  You probably know just as much about her as she knows about you.’

‘I know I love her,’  Lexx sighed, happy the topic was shifting away from the relay.  He didn’t want to talk about the relay.

‘Yeah, well, sometimes loving someone keeps you away from them.  It doesn’t matter what you want.  You have to put that aside,’  Riley stated.

‘It’s hard.’  Grumbled Lexx.

“Tell me about it.”  Riley’s own thoughts wandered to the love of his life.  The beautiful Maelinn.  Sometimes loving someone keeps you away from them.  How fitting.
