Last week we saw that the wrestling match has started. Cade hit Rocky with a chair, and he hasn't moved yet.

Excerpt:

The referee hustled over to Rocky. He took the precaution of motioning Cade back, even though Cade had moved away and wasn’t even close to Rocky. Bending over, he touched Rocky’s shoulder and said something Aimee couldn’t hear. He barked an order to the timekeeper, who picked up a radio.

Two paramedics, exuding competence and authority, rushed to the ring with a stretcher. They put Rocky in a neck brace and carefully loaded him onto the stretcher. As they trotted out of the arena, Rocky’s arm fell from where it lay on his chest. It looked so loose and floppy that Aimee screamed again. She ran behind the paramedics with tears and mascara streaming down her cheeks.
****
“Is it safe to sit up yet?” Rocky whispered, his voice barely audible over the sound of the ambulance siren.

Aimee slapped him.


Blurb:
Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancĂ© into the witness protection pro-gram would land her in a haunted house in a town that’s downright creepy. She’d have laughed if she had been told the guy who lives down the road might be her soul mate, not the man whose ring she’s wearing. Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new online business, life in the country is anything but boring.

What a rascal! Any thing to get out of the fight and it worked. She, however, is in a major pickle. Good job, Elaine.

Kim Magennis said...

I would have smacked him too!

Nicely done, Elaine.

I think I would have slapped him too! Nice snippet.

PT said...

Add me to the list of people who would have slapped him too. He'd be safer in the ring with an opponent armed with a chair!

The Belle in Blue said...

Oh, wow! Great ending. I'm glad she slapped him, but I had to chuckle a little too. :-)

arhuel said...

I'm the only one who gasped in horror and wondered "What's up with that?"

Ed Hoornaert said...

The kicker at the end made me snicker. This is sooo wrestling.

Well, heeeeelllloooo! That's an unexpected twist! Nice snippet!

Daelyn Morgana said...

Wait, that was all totally staged? He didn't get up on purpose? Oh I would have slapped him, too! No, I would have slapped him more than once. Poor girl was given a heart attack and a half!

Chelle Cordero said...

Well I agree with Daelyn, the poor girl was probably having a heart attack! Great snippet.

that last bit made me smile ... interesting twist.
