Shift – In The Way

Continued from scene sixty-five

I passed Linda in the hallway as I approached Karen’s door.

“Thanks for taking the heat off,” she said hastily.

Before I could say, you’re welcome, she was gone causing me some concern. But I was not going to be intimidated. If Karen is mad, she will not be mad at me, I thought.

Entering her office, I readied myself. “Karen, whatever beef you have with Linda is not going to be taken out on me.”

“Shut up and get over here.”

“Did you not hear what I said?”

“Babe, we’ve got a problem. Robert found the answer to my question as to why some tribes were asked while others were not asked to join the outliers.”


“All excluded tribes have chiefs with a pedigree.”


“Pedigree chiefs know our true history. A history the outliers want to rewrite.”

“We’re in their way.”

“More specifically, I’m in their way.”

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.
