Lisa’s suggestion about coffee and using the facilities was gladly accepted. We gawked at flashy limousines, beautiful girls, guys in fancy suits – like normal tourists. Finally, Tony navigated us to the back road. We parked in the shadow of a tree, trying to behave as any lost tourist would.

My phone beeped as Lisa called to let us listen in on the conversation. In one point we had been wrong: Hardin and fake Bobbi had met. He had told O’wen that someone like him would never be a star, given his looks. He needed to show off a little, rent one of his luxury mobile homes and a car, settle down in the middle of nowhere, ideally on the outskirts of a tiny town with a dumb sheriff. The scandals would be harmless enough, with lots of publicity. When O’wen paid for the mobile home and car, the power outage made ‘real’ Bobbi seize the opportunity to vanish.

Dear readers,

Lisa is the main character in C. S. Boyack’s ‘Wild Concept’. She’s a robot who helps Craig Boyack around the writing cabin these days.

To learn more about versatile author Craig, awesome automation Lisa Burton and the writing cabin, please check out his blog “Entertaining Stories” and my review on ‘Wild Concept’:
