* SPOILER ALERTS *
So, I'll be honest when I say I never expected to find another muse in regards to writing fanfiction. And then I ran across the Psy/Changeling series by Nalini Singh and really enjoyed it! Like many times when I rip through a series, I like to go back and reread from the beginning to see if I missed anything (I ALWAYS miss something - LOTS of somethings, usually! lol) As I read back through the first book I started to wonder why the Laurens helped with the distraction and risked exposure. Was it possible that Judd had already felt something for Brenna and that prompted him to take action?
This one shot explores that option and runs parallel to the first 2 books as a prequel to the 3rd. I took a couple of liberties with details but this piece is as close to canon as possible :))
