Shift – Practice Makes Perfect

Continued from scene fifty-nine


The truth is, I didn’t want to practice. I wanted to do whatever without learning the specifics.

When I was younger, I built an ultralight airplane, and my flight instructor told me to fly a few feet off the runway, then land. But I was having none of that and took to the skies. It was awesome and so easy; until I had to land. Turns out those specifics would have saved my landing gear.

But practice, I must according to Olivia. So here I sit, a few hours later, across from baby Jenkins playing brain games and thinking I would rather be flying.

Baby Jenkins seemed amused I that thought and held out his arms like he was flying. Then abruptly crashed onto the floor, laughing.

To be continued…

Shift is an online work of fiction.

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.
