“I promise I will bring you back here as soon as they say you can return.” Damian whispered, wrapping one arm around Chel and guiding her toward a nearby hall. Vic followed quickly, not happy about Damian touching his daughter, but acknowledging to himself that now was not the time to yell at the tall alien.
Riley and Kade were left alone. Kade walked in a circle around his son, his steps confident and heavy with criticism. Riley began to feel like a small child. How often had his father made a judgement circle around him for doing something wrong? More than he could count and none of them had ended in anything pleasant.
Kade stopped on Riley’s right, not looking at him as he intoned, “We’re going to have a little discussion about inappropriate usage of family contacts, Riley.”
“Yes, Sir,” Riley squeaked an immediate response. This was not going to be fun. Even though he was about to have to answer for some of the things he had done, Riley was grateful that his father had finally stepped in to help him, even if it meant most of his plans were likely not to be followed. It was no longer his sole responsibility to help Lexx as it had felt in the beginning.
It was a relief.
