“Zaile,..as a friend, I advise you rethink that.” Riley listened, but he couldn’t believe it. There was nothing wrong with Lexx. He was just ,… Lexx. “You don’t KNOW him. All the information you have is third hand,.. the reports and profiles are wrong. Do you think they’re going to tell you the truth or say anything PROMISING about him?”

“Riley,.. I know you mean well, but my mind is made up. I want my sister. I don’t care about Lexx.” Zaile attempted to soften his tone. Riley was too close to Lexx. Zaile needed Riley.

“You don’t think Lexx would help you if you were just truthful about what’s going on instead of lurking in the background?” Riley questioned further.
