3 Works in Mrs. Brisby/Justin
It has been eight years since the rats of NIMH left for Thorn Valley. It had been a peaceful and prosperous eight years for the rats, yet none know when a shadow appears, growing in size and thirsting for power.
And then the Brisby family arrive.
While Mrs. Brisby struggles with the changes of her new life her children settle in and start to discover who they are.
Talents are discovered, bonds are forged and broken, gifts are awakened and paths are taken.
The darkness arriving is strong, it’s clever and will do what it takes to meet its end.
But it had never met the Brisby family.

A short story in which I imagined a "deleted scene" of this beautiful poetic fresco. What happened between the penultimate scene and the epilogue? I hope to be in the same tune as Don Bluth and fanfiction writers who preceded me.
A missing scene taking place before the rats depart to Thorn Valley. Hearts are for safe-keeping.
