Lexx walked a little closer to the partiers and Chel jogged to his side. A server walked nearby and Lexx waved her over. She tray she was carrying was empty.
“Could you bring Chel-” Lexx called out, intending to have the server bring Chel a drink to help wake her up. Then a thought stabbed through his mind. What are you doing? You can’t trust that the ADC won’t try some way to harm Chel. Lexx waved the server away. “Never mind.” The girl stared at him for a moment with a perplexed look on her face. Then she turned and went on her way to get a fresh tray of food or drinks to offer to the island guests.
“Come with me.” Lexx grabbed Chel’s hand and pulled her in the opposite direction of the partygoers and back down the beach. He hoped Keith wouldn’t notice them as they trudged to the sand.
“Where are we going?” Chel tried to keep up but ended up being pulled more than staying on her own two feet as they crossed the sand.
“A safe place.” Lexx slowed down to keep Chel from falling.
