Henry has just escaped from his prison with the blue bloods, but his first meeting has the feeling of fate and the shaping of many future lives.


This is an incredibly short short story (go figure) that is almost a scene taken from Blade’s earlier life. There’s not really much of a storyline here, but it still gives a little extra background into the enigma that features in Kiss of Steel.

Since this is so short, and I haven’t yet read Kiss of Steel, it is a little hard to make much commentary on it. it’s a basic missing scene moment from a former life and a good insight into how distraught and confused Blade was at the beginning. It is also the pivotal moment of change. But that is all that it indicates, there isn’t much of a storyline. There is an introduction of characters, but no real change, just a sense of a future shift in personhood.
