About BeamMeUpScotty

Hello everyone, I'm Scott. Thank you for taking the time to peruse my posts. I enjoy writing in my free time. I work for the government, so despite what most people think I actually have work to do. Nevertheless, my goal is a 2000-3000 word chapter every Sunday. I'm sure some will be longer and some shorter, but I figure that's a good place to start. I welcome any comments or constructive criticism. . I won't take anymore of your time. Enjoy!

A Change of Pace- Prologue 9

Rain propelled by hurricane force winds splattered on bulletproof glass and drummed on the reinforced concrete of the New York Patriots’ headquarters.

A Change of Pace – Chapter 3 5

Daisy took one step out of her plain, grey Ford rental and immediately remembered why she hated the South. Once outside the protective barrier offered by the SUV’s air conditioning she found herself immediately coated with a thin layer of sweat. By the time she made it to the trunk […]

A Change of Pace – Chapter 4 2

“Welcome to West Private University, Miss Martin,” the housing representative smiled and accepted Angela’s driver’s license to check against a spreadsheet. The smile had a false quality that said this wasn’t the first or last time she’d be doing this routine today. She was only a year or two older […]

A Change of Pace – Chapter 5 4

Reaper’s world was a mix of sweat and blood as she stumbled across the rooftop frantically looking for cover. <Stupid…Stupid…Stupid,> she berated herself as she swiveled her head around looking for their assailant. The intelligence brief said it was supposed to be a simple jewelry heist. A couple guys with […]

A Change of Pace – Chapter 6 3

Townhouse #117 was conveniently located. The previous evening all the inhabitants walked across the narrow street to enjoy the culinary delicacies of the dining hall. To call what they ate food pushed the word to the limit of its definition, and the circulating rumor was the cooks threw a healthy […]

A Change of Pace – Chapter 7 6

Daisy’s stony expression cracked under the shocked looks and exclamations from the Heroes in training. She couldn’t stop the chuckle from reaching her lips. She was supposed to be the worse cop in their little introduction duet, but this was just too priceless. “What!” “Is this a joke…” “But there […]

A Change of Pace – Chapter 8 2

Angela sat in the corner of the student union nursing a soda and trying very hard to not let the bongo drums get on her nerves. The theme for the freshmen orientation shindig was a luau, although the organizers weren’t too interested in details since bongo drums were Afro-Cuban not […]
