This is from the second chapter. Annie Peterson has been arrested and taken to the National Guard Armory in Washington, DC for processing. Rock Bound will be re-released in both e-book and paperback in February through Create Space.
“Put everything in these boxes,” a tough-looking female Marine Sergeant told the women. “All yer jewelry, too.” The [first] woman emptied her pockets into the box and began to walk through the metal detector. “Yer still wearin’ jewelry.”
“These are my wedding rings; I never take them off.”
The Sergeant grabbed the woman’s hand, pulled out a vibro-blade, and sliced off the woman’s finger.
Annie quickly removed her rings and kissed them when her wrists were freed. Paul, wherever you are, I will always love you, she thought. Please forgive me. Annie tossed her rings into the box.
