“Now, now, she wsn’t the one who kidnapped you.”  Kade stepped up beside Chel in an effort to calm her.

“Why are you letting her fight Lexx?!”  Chel exclaimed.

“I can’t think of anyone better to fight Lexx right now.”  Kade stopped short of the glass, his back to Chel.  It did nothing to make her less anxious, but her own father standing by her side and putting a comforting arm around her succeeded.  He didn’t have to say anything.  He just had to be there.
