Chel and Lexx stared at Lexx, unsure how to take what he had just said.

“I don’t want to die.”  Lexx reiterated.  “Why is veryone asking me to die for their cause?”

“Lexx, I didn’t say that.”  Vic shook his head apologetically, searching his conversation for what he said that could have led Lexx to even thinking that.

“Nobody here wants you to die.”  Chel tried to get in Lexx’s line of sight, but he was staring down at the floor and avoiding her gaze.

“I’m sure he wouldn’t mind,”  Lexx grumbled, inclining his head in Vic’s direction.
