Scar's Back!

Here's a glimpse of my upcoming book 'TEKNODOL'...

Chapter two: 'Scar's back'

(musical accompaniant: 'The Other Side of Life' by The Moody Blues).

A young red-headed female, althletically built, emerges from a lunar shuttle. A corporate looking business man tries to chat her up but she ignores him.
As she passes him, he notices the lettering on her flourescent orange and yellow jumpsuit: "Lunar Corrections Center". The man immediatlely stops talking to her and looks the other way.

Scar (short for Scarlet) continues walking out of the shuttle arrival center and into the streets of a futuristic city.
A black leather clad underworld character hanging out by a floating taxi cab recognizes her and snaps a picture with his comm phone. He then begins to text-send "Scar's back!" He highlights 'ALL' and sends the message.

Instantly, all over the city, we see inserted images of people receiving the message as Scar continues her purposeful walk through this futuristic metropolis.
All the TJ's (transom jumpers) in the city begin to get the word and start running for their hopped up A-G (anti-gravitic) vehicles.

One by one the sky-gangs start to arrive at 'launchpoint zero' deep within the subterranean levels beneath the city and are cheered by the growing crowd of onlookers as each arrives.

Each sky-gang anti-grav has a female TJ on the hood, ready to challenge the current title-holder...the legendary 'ROCKET GIRL' (Scarlet)
Transom Jumper sky-gangs:

1 - The Suits - a big bucks pro-corporate sky-gang wearing althletic corporate suits and sunglasses.
2 - The Toros- Hispanic sky-gang members who wear black flamenco and matador outfits and sombreros.

3 - The Witch Doctors- An African warrior sky-gang wearing bone-studded outfits and painted white faces.
4 - The Jade Dragons - Chinese sky-gang members wearing green snake-skin leather outfits & black and green visors.
5 - The Harajuku or 'Jukus' - Japanese sky-gang members wearing athletic kimonos and Kabuki masks.
6 - The Holos - high-tech sky-gang members, wearing ever-changing video-projector outfits.
7 - The Neons - wearing black-light neon outfits with pin-striped bodysuits and visors.
8 - The Madisons - ad-wearing sky-gang members paid by fashion companies.
9 - The Rems - remote controlled anthrobots controlled by handicapped people via the worldnet.
10 - The Fauntleroys - long-haired sky-gang members wearing too-small school uniforms.
11 - The Quakes - always dressed in plain black and white Quaker outfits or Amish-wear.
12 - The Wolfensteins - classic Gothic monster-movie sky-gang members.
13 - The Sun Kings - Elaborate mask-wearing sky-gang members with dark-circled eyes and gold masks.
14 - The Peles - tattooed South sea sky-gang members with fire rippling around their legs and arms.
15 - Scar's gang, the Space Cadets - wearing classic 1950's space cadet uniforms and goggles.

Scar walks into the underground levels of the city where the TJ sky-gangs are already docked and ready for the 'Welcome Wagon Race'. She passes by sleezy subterranean casinos and nightclubs etc...People whisper and point as she walks by. As she nears Launch Point Zero, the crowds eventually part to form a rowdy gauntlet of nether-dwellers who begin the finger-snapping ritual as Scar walks by.

"Rocket Girl...Rocket Girl...Rocket Girl..."

Finally she arrives at 'sky dock 52' where her old gang and their leader C.C. ('Commander Cody') are dressed in tattered space cadet uniforms and goggles...waiting for her.

She stops, smiles...unzips her corrections coverall...and reveals the bright red space-cadet 'Sky Captain' uniform she was wearing at the time of her arrest.
On the back of her shiny red flight jacket is emblazoned the name 'Rocket Girl'.

C.C. smiles and starts up his famous anti-grav hotrod...the infamous triple jet-engined 'C-SAU'.

Scarlet steps into her magnetic jump-boots and leaps onto C-SAU's hood. A wild cheer from the sky-gang crowd goes up and the race is on!

All over the city, people are watching live-feed video of Scar's return being televised to the networks. Giant video-news signs begin to show past images of Scar's daring flight-races. Police units have been alerted and are taking up postions throughout the city in their black and white police antigrav's in order to make arrests (if they can) and stop the illegal hood-race.

Two futurisitic officers in an antigrav vehicle smile at each other and adjust their police visors.

One says to the other, "This is going to be good".
