Shift – The News

Continued from scene ten


Chapter Three

A week passed before I could wrap my head around it all. I was 28, a shifter, soon-to-be husband, and father. A good life, I suppose, but there was a sad side. Both my parents died when I was two, and I have no one to share it with. But Karen assured me my mind’s eye will one day present them to me. And last night, I could have sworn I felt the touch of my father’s hand and the lips of a mother’s kiss on my cheek as I fell asleep.

“Baby! turn up the volume, their talking about Jill’s arrest.”

“That’s right, Susan, Becky White has pleaded not guilty to the assault and battery charges. And you’re not going to believe this. She claims her doppelganger did it.”

“A doppelganger?”

“That’s right, a look-alike and her lawyers have video of her doppelganger being arrested right there in North Myrtle Beach minutes before her own arrest here in Fairbanks.’

“You can turn it off now.”

“Do you think it’ll all blow over?

“I’m not sure at this point. It may, but I need to call a meeting with the tribe to set some new rules to live by for the next several weeks.”

Continue to scene twelve.


Shift is an online work of fiction.

This is the first draft of my mauscript Shift – Don’t judge a book by its cover. I am writing it online in sections as I go. So feel free to comment, good or bad. If you see mistakes, point them out.

The story centers around shapeshifting.

I’m currently working on chapter seven.
