“I’m so thankful Lex is in your arms tonight,” said Karen to Olivia. “And Jeff, I hope you can forgive me for leaving you out of the loop. Had I told you, Echo might have been tipped off.”
“I understand. Would have made the same decision if I were you.”
“It means a lot to hear you say that.”
“Well, we’d like to go home now if it’s okay with you? Lex is exhausted.”
“Of course, we can talk in the morning.”
“One last thing, Chief. What do you plan to do with Echo?”
“Like I said, we can talk in the morning. For now, I would like to have Christian drive you home in my cart.”
Jeff looked over at me and said, “Sure you can find your way around the place, Fortunato?”
“I think so.”
Karen sat silently as we left the room, staring intently at the security monitors. I wanted to say something to ease her mind but had nothing.
This is the first draft of my manuscript 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 nine.
