Meanwhile, in a brighter colored area of Lexx’s island home, Riley’s father, Kade was leading a very bouncy Maenae down a hall. Maenae energetically peeked into the various open rooms they passed and was met with friendly waves from their occupants. There were a few large waiting rooms with large screens set up of the island. These aliens were there to support Lexx.
Kade had reached out earlier with orders to Stealth and Dash to meet him in a specific area and the pair of large felines did not disappoint. The dice were waiting for Kade and Maenae in the first of a set of play rooms set aside for Maenae. The entry was small and barren, with walls painted a calming shade of lavender.
The large play room beyond it was painted a lively golden orange with green and blue colors striking through it at points to break it up and keep it from being overwhelming. There were new toys and stuffed animals all over the room, along with a large play house. There were slides and swings, but Maenae was the only child there.
Maenae squealed happily and darted up to Dash, sinking into the thick fur on his neck. Stealth remained sitting patiently by Dash’s side, giving him an amused look.
“Stealth, Dash, keep Maenae here until I send Sirius and Serenity to relieve you.” Kade began delivering orders to the pair. “She is not to leave this room for anything, nor is she allowed to watch any feeds. You know why.”
“Yes, Sir.” Dash and Stealth stated simultaneously.
