We start with yet another really, really, really creepy scene. Dani – in short shorts and a tied-up shirt, so right off she’s a bit uncomfortably sexualized for a teenager (I don’t think her age has ever been given, but it’s not likely to be older than 16) – is sleeping at her desk, when Evil Xavier comes in and subjects her to intense psychic pleasure. 735 more words
