Alexis looked down as no one really addressed her or responded to her, it was like they didn't care she was there, invisible unless they needed something from her, as always. Not even Tessa seemed to acknowledge her apology. It was all so hopeless. Alexis looked at her new weapon, something that seemed to fit a whore like her, or at least Operator seemed to think so, or why else give it to her. Reluctantly she took the bullwhip in her hand hesitated for a moment before finally stepping forward to use it. She cringed at the sound it made but accepted it. She remembered one of her owners had a fetish for pain... at least it wasn't that he liked to cause pain on her, just receive it. It would have been horrible to have to explain the scars on top of everything else. But she had used a whip before, on that particular owner, making it so much harder for her to bare using. When her attack was finished Alexis stepped back and in front of Tessa. The least she could do for the girl after making her so uncomfortable was block a hit or two for her.
