| This fan fiction is based on the television series 'Bordertown' and some of it's regular characters. When the series ended in 1991 , we were left wondering if Marie would choose the mountie or the marshal. That question is answered in this story.
The two main characters in my fan fiction are Jack and Mabel (the marshal and the school marm).
Mabel of course is a fictional character I added, just to spice up the marshal's life!
The other characters play a secondary role.
The story is rated PG...and I have tried to keep the characters as close to what we remember as possible. No copyright infringement is intended.
I hope you enjoy ....it is intended to be lighthearted and humorous, with a little touch of romance, a few sad scenes and some pretty sappy ones too. Just like the program!
I don't pretend to be a great writer, but someone more famous than me wrote Nahanni!
Let me know what you think...good or bad.....
