Saturday Sample Fortuna

Welcome to Saturday Sample. Today I'll still be posting from Fortuna my romantic comedy. So far we know that Rocky has faked his death to enter the witness protection program. This scene is at Rocky's fake funeral.

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.


“Thank you for coming. I know Rocky would appreciate it.”

Aimee moved Rocky’s wrestling buddy, Bam Bam Logan, down the receiving line at the funeral home and greeted the next mourner. “Thank you for coming. I know Rocky would appreciate it.”

Rocky’s parents had insisted that a formal receiving line be set up so they could personally speak to all of his friends and acquaintances. They knew Rocky wasn’t dead, but emotion had overcome Rocky’s mother anyway. She knew she wouldn’t see much of her baby in the future. The poor woman hadn’t stopped crying for an hour now.

Personally, Aimee felt like screaming, not crying. She knew that the closed coffin sitting under those red roses was just a sham. Rocky had already been spirited away by the FBI.
“Thank you for coming. I know Rocky would appreciate it.” 

Would this line never end? How many people were in the stinking LAWA anyway? That’s where most of the mourners came from.
