“How’s it a secret? Olivia can scan your memories.”
“True, but she doesn’t. Do you scan Karen’s every time you touch?”
“No, but I could.”
“True again, but you don’t. Why?”
“Never felt the need to.”
“Secrets are hard to come by in our world, so finding a soulmate who trusts you is something special. And it would be a damn shame to lose it over a hidden bar.”
“So why hide it from her in the first place?”
“Being an open book leaves me feeling––let’s just say somewhat controlled. So tearing out a few pages evens things out for me mentally.”
“I get it.”
“I don’t think you do, but you will. Now let’s head back over to your house. Doc should have already called Karen to apologize for getting you drunk.
“Said you and him were even now.”
“How did he know I was drunk?”
“Sent him a text when I heard the beat to Stayin Alive. The walls are not soundproof you know.”
“We should probably look into that, don’t you think?”
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.
