A sweet snippet on Seregil's earlier days, long before he ever met Alec. It was wonderful to meet a younger Seregil, subdued and very angry young man that he was.
One of the nice little 'fill in' pieces that makes up Glimpses and an insight to the beginning of Seregil and Micun's relationship. I found this to be a good snippet, but like the other stories in Glimpses it has the feeling of 'fanfiction' -- even though it was written by the author herself! That's not to say it's a bad thing, just a noted impression.

Sweet, sweet, sweet nice short story about how Seregil for first time meets Micum. :o)
He was so cute! So sweet little wild animal. With deep distrust to every human. But Micum could tame him - with some good food. :o) :o) :o)
I love this short story!
An origin piece on how two freinds who are more like brothers first met. It is a necessary read for any fan of the Nightrunner series.
