Small monkeys skittered across the branches of towering trees, screeching at the sudden blast of energy that set their fur on end. Down below them, the golden red light of the door from The Rift had opened. Lexx was the first one through, looking up at all the noise.

Lexx shrugged it off, staring up at the monkeys and thinking to himself, ‘It amazes me how different the terrains are on this world,.. as well as the variety of life.”
