“You’ll know she’s back before Lexx will.”  Claudia appeared to have hit her time quota for mingling with the humans and began to turn away.  “Maybe you can talk some sense into her so this doesn’t happen again.  Being near Lexx is dangerous for anyone involved.”  The curvy alien began walking away as quickly as she had arrived, swaying her hips with such an exaggerated motion that Vic was surprised she could actually move forward.  “I’m going to get ready to go now.  Think about what you’ll say.”

“Do you take anything she says seriously?”  Keith shook his head in disbelief.

“Not a word.”  Vic sighed.  His daughter’s life was in the hands of these aliens and their motives were all questionable.
