“Think, Lexx. Think.” Lexx slowly drew his legs up onto the rock and slid his hands into his hair. Another unwanted voice in his head. Another uninvited intruder. Where did he come from? What was he doing here? “Go away, please.” Lexx grumbled, rubbing his head and trying to mentally force the being before him out of his head. “Just go away. I do not need any more voices in my head.” He didn’t go away. “No, I can’t do that.” The Rishan sat on the rock next to Lexx. Lexx glanced up at him, a strange emotion filling him. Lexx stared blankly into the rishan’s eyes. They were green. Bright, lively green. He recognized those eyes and a deep sorrow welled up within him. “I am your father, Taumus, your grandfather, Alexxis, your great grandfather Alexx and many many generations further back than that, all the way back to this very planet.” The Rishan kept smiling as he spoke, obviously happy to be talking to Lexx.
