I have a soft spot for shifters. Especially when they’re in need of help.
I found them in the snow. Running away from a murderous wolf pack who wanted them dead.
Justin and a little shifter baby – a panther cub – known as Alice.
He was trying to reach his own clan, but fell in the snow, and I came across them by pure chance.
Seems like it was fate for us to meet again, since I’ve known Justin from another time, another encounter… thanks to my activity with a certain dating agency…
I took him and his niece home. Not that I was keeping that home for much longer, thanks to my mother.
Alice was outcast from her former home, with her mother gone. Guess I have to step up and give her what she needs – until the panthers sort out their blood feud with the wolves.
Note: This is a standalone story.
