DanielleKitten has asked me to contribute a piece to the Hunter Family Universe, a series of stories about the Hunter clan. With only a single reference in her story "A Case of Love" to the clan's founder, Rory Hunter, and his bride, Courtney Stanhope, I was off. In a completely different direction. Readers should be aware that this story is unlike the others I have posted. I have placed stories in the present before, and even in the future, but never in the past. But growth as a writer requires taking unfamiliar steps, and I hope that you like this story as well.
