Between the Scenes with Iris – Lexi from The Touch

Five minutes with Lexi from The Touch

Iris: Iris here, I’m talking to Lexi Morgan, artist and amateur sleuth of late. Thanks for joining us today, I know you’ve been through a lot lately.

Lexi: Yeah, it’s no problem. I’ve never been interviewed before.
You’ll have to smack me if I say something stupid, okay?

Iris: You’ve got a deal. Now I noticed the gloves. Interesting fashion statement.

Lexi: It’s not so much about fashion as it is for protection.

Iris: You have a thing about germs? It’s spiders for me.

Lexi: Ooh I hate spiders too! [her face scrunches up adorably] But no, it’s not a germ thing. Didn’t your people tell you? I thought that was why you wanted to talk to me. I can see things whenever I touch an object, like who held it last or what they were doing, stuff like that.

Iris: Yeah? That’s fascinating, and it works on anything?

Lexi: Yep, any object. It comes in handy when you want to know who drank all the milk and put the container back into the fridge. [she grins]

Iris: I’ll keep that in mind if I ever come over to your place. So if I gave you this pen…

Lexi: I’d rather not… [her hands ball up into fists]

Iris: I promise, I didn’t do anything nasty with it.

Lexi: I believe you, but I’d rather not go down that path. The next thing I know there’ll be a line around the block with people asking me to touch things.

Iris: But you did use your gift in order to help find your niece when she went missing, right?

Lexi: Of course, what else could I do? Not that what I found made a whole lot of sense to start with, but eventually the pieces started to fall into place. I’d never met a real live ghost before. Well, you know what I mean.

Iris: I heard there were actually a few ghosts living in your sister’s house. What can you tell us about that?

Lexi: Yes, there were. The ghosts of dead children actually, it was creepy as all get out. The first contact I had with them was hearing them sing.

Iris: What were they singing?

Lexi: [starts singing in a quavery, child like voice] Take the keys and lock her up, lock her up, lock her up. Take the keys and lock her up, my fair lady.

Iris: That is creepy. What did you do about it?

Lexi: I tried talking to my sister Allie, but she pretended like she didn’t hear it. I’m surprised they didn’t cart me away to the looney bin when I told the cops about it.

Iris: Cops. That would be Detective Gabriel Ryan, right?

Lexi: [she brightens visibly] That’s the one. I’d probably be dead if not for him.

Iris: Judging from the smile on your face I’d say he’s a keeper. Tell me more about him.

Lexi: Oh, he’s… like hot fudge sundaes and Christmas rolled into one.

Iris: That good, huh? Maybe I should call the police the next time I’m feeling lonely.

Lexi: I never thought I’d be into a cop, you know? I always went for the artistic type, or techy guys. But he’s not like you’d think a cop would be at all, he’s actually really nice.

Iris: Apologies to our readers in the law enforcement branches out there, the views expressed in our interviews do not necessarily reflect the views of the Between the Scenes with Iris segment.

Lexi: Oh… I didn’t mean anything by that…

Iris: It’s okay, you were saying?

Lexi: Um, just that Gabriel was very helpful in helping us find Chloe and getting to the bottom of what was going on. He kept an open mind, which not everyone does these days, and he was very understanding with my little um… handicap. [she wiggles her gloved fingers and then her face lights up again as she remembers something] Oh and he’s a fantastic kisser… I probably shouldn’t have said that, I hope he doesn’t get in trouble. [her forehead puckers with worry]

Iris: There you have it folks, cops are people too. I wouldn’t worry about it too much, but I’ll ask him if it’s a problem when I see him. So can you still hear the ghosts, now that you saved your niece?

Lexi: No, they’re gone now. [the lights flicker suspiciously and she frowns] At least, I thought they were…

Iris: I think it’s a good time to wrap up for today. Thanks for reading, guys. Stay tuned for the next Between the Scenes interview with Gabriel, from The Touch.
