24 hours.  I can do it.   Lexx dressed slowly, clearing his mind of all thoughts.

At least, all of the thoughts he controlled.

And when you do, then what? An unwanted voice crackled through Lexx’s thoughts.  You’re safe, but wht about the thousand who will die to take your place?

Shut up, Riane.  Lexx made a face, then mentally pushed at the presence, shoving it aside as he concentrated on pulling a cape over his head and pushing his wings through the opening in the back.  Sticky black webs crept through Lexx’s mind, pushing past his defenses.  It was an annoyance, but nothing more.
