No matter how far she ventured from this farm, she would always be the monster created within its walls of timber and shame. They would see what she really was. She was a murderer, a psychopath and a victim. She was all three of those things.
She slept a dreamless sleep free of Dragons, for she had slain them once again.
(Lexy and Tiberius officially meet)
Lexy crouched in front of the leader of Triad and asked, "What is your name?"
"It's Tiberius," he answered.
He was remarkably calm. What she'd done to his men hadn't even fazed him. Lexy enquired, "Aren't you afraid of me?"
Captivated by her, he provoked, "A little, but honestly, I'm still trying to figure you out. I'm a thousand years old. I've been starving before. I understand how one would resort to the act of cannibalism. What I can't figure out is why you would agree to go with this Grey kid willingly to Clan Ankh when you are so obviously meant to be mine?"
Intrigued by his delusional statement, she cocked her head and sat down in the dirt just out of his reach. A thousand years old my ass. Did he think she was born yesterday? She sparred, "What would make you think I was meant to be yours?"
Tiberius teased, "You are a certifiably insane redhead and that's kind of my thing."
(She goes with Grey)
Grey said, "Thank you for coming to help me. I know you didn't have to."
What a silly boy Grey was with his intoxicating accent and unknowing words. She knew he was going to drag her out of the emotional void she was trapped in. He may save her life. She was depending on him to bring her with him to be a part of this family that he felt so much for. She could see what he would mean to her even through the darkness. Lexy divulged, "Yes, I did."
Grey enquired, "Why?"
Lexy confessed, "You are my yellow door." She knew it sounded crazy.
Instead of questioning the meaning of her words, he did something unexpected. He held out his hands in the darkness and vowed, "I'll be your yellow door. Whatever you need me to be. I will be that for you."
She knew this was the truth. He had found a clear path into her wounded, dark heart. He'd convinced her he wanted to be her friend. As he took her hands the darkness within her vanished, and it was like someone turned on a joy receptor in her soul. He'd lured her out of her Dragon's layer and charmed her with the melody of his words.
