Disclaimer: Yeah, right ...
Notes: This is my epilogue to the "Manhunt" episode. Over the years, there's been a lot of discussion on various lists about why Claire didn't just tell everybody the truth. This is my explanation. This story was written for a zine, but since it's now free to go up on my site, I figured I'd share it with y'all as well.
Thanks: To KET and RubyJ. who beta'ed this thing back when I first wrote it. These ladies do a fantastic job of keeping me on track, and I am deeply indebted to them.
