“My life is yours and not for others.  I will do as you desire and live.”  Lexx faded away into golden light, his voice still clearly heard, stubbornly stating his vow.  “No one will take my life, because I will protect it for you.”  There was a long pause as the dream begin to fade away.  “I will win.”

The dream ended and Chel stirred, half conscious to what she had just dreamt.  Still tired, she sighed and rolled over onto her side in an attempt to fall back asleep.  She wasn’t aware of Lexx crouched in the shadows nearby, silent and unseen.  He stood up and stepped backward, phasing through the wall and into the living area.
