Chel stared at Claudia for a moment, then it sunk in. Claudia was serious. Instead of stepping between Chel and Lexx, she was stepping aside and accepting how things were. Chel blinked a few times, attempting to clear her thoughts, then she smiled.
“I don’t have a problem with you, Claudia, so yes, I forgive you.” Chel replied quickly.
“Thank you!”
Before Chel could react or even take a step back, Claudia had grabbed her tightly in a hug, completely lifting her off her feet!
“Can’t breathe!!” Chel gasped, unable to even wiggle in the far more powerful alien’s grasp.
