“It will, but you will be very sleepy when it does.” Lexx slid off the couch and lifted a hand to press it over Chel’s heart.
Chel was a little shocked by the move. “Lexx, what are you doing?”
“Listening to your heart.” Lexx looked worriedly up at Chel. He wanted to make sure that he hadn’t done anything that might be hurting her. He couldn’t bear the thought of his error harming her.
