Lisa and I left the station. It was peaceful outside.

“This greedy bastard is hopefully getting what he deserves!”

“He will, Lisa. The trial will have media coverage. This may well give Lavinia and Lester the opportunity for their alien show.”

“I really hope that, Jim. It’s incredible how mean humans can be.”

“If all humans had at least half of your empathy and compassion – the world would be a better place, Lisa.”

Lisa shook her head and smiled. “Look what I’ve got for Craig!”

I admired the little object in her hand. “He’ll have a blast! Great choice!”

“I miss him, Bunny, the cabin – everything.”

“The case is solved – thanks to you, Lisa. You’re free to go.”

Lisa hugged me. “Promise me.. Listen to your heart, Jim, let Trudy in.”

Following her gaze, I noticed Trudy at the corner.

Lisa jumped on her bike and was gone.

“I’m going home!”

Dear readers,

Thank you very much for joining me on this flash fiction series with added fan fiction.

It was great fun to write this story.

My special thanks to ‘Flash Fiction Friday’ (@FlashFridayFic) – their photo inspired me to write a flash fiction story. You can revisit this photo in the first instalment of ‘FF: Neighbors!’

And my very special thanks to Craig Boyack! He agreed to let his awesome character Lisa Burton help Sheriff Jim Burrell solve this tricky case. Craig, Lisa and you will always be welcome on my blogs.

Have a great day!



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’:

    Hi Karen,
    I’ve been following your story, but my internet connection has been very poor this past week, so I didnt get to comment on all the episodes, but just wanted to say well done! I enjoyed it immensely, and think its wonderful how you and Craig teamed up to share this character! Good job!

      Hi Ali,
      thank you very much for your kind words. This means a lot to me!
      This adventure of starting to write flash fiction, turning it into a series and introducing a little fan fiction will be explained in the upcoming post.
      My heartfelt thanks to Craig for letting Lisa support Sheriff Jim – and to all readers who liked and commented on the episodes. ❤

  2. Aww, what a great ending! I’ve loved this series!

    61 parts but worth every one. I have to tell you that I read the last two installments as the Henry Girls played in the background from your Train of Thought post….

  4. Reblogged this on Entertaining Stories and commented:
    Oh, Yay! Lisa is bringing me a present. I’m so glad she was able to help Sheriff Jim. I wonder what it is?

    Today is like Craig day on the internet. This one isn’t about me, it’s about Karen. Please go visit Karen, and give her lots of credit for this story.
