“A soul echo is not an entity you should anger, Lexx.”  Anger rippled through Riane’s form and the heavy voice struck Lexx with a force that sent him back another step.  “I can make your sleeping life a nightmare.”

Lexx glared at Riane.  Who was she to be threatening him?  She was a mental impression, nothing physical and nothing that could harm him.  He turned away, rolling his eyes at the threat.

“That’s fine.  I don’t need to sleep.”  Lexx shrugged and waited.
