Seia wasn't nearly as smooth as he is now back when he was seventeen. Just sayin'.

As a side-note, on the timeline, this flashback happens only a few months after Kylie enters the Lethian Guild at the age of seven. (This is referenced in this strip.)

I don't know why, but I feel like Seia's thoughts right now are somewhere along the lines of "ohsweetmotherofholycrapwhatamigoingtodonobodytaughtmehowtodealwiththiskindofthingplsdontcry" but for some reason, only the last two words managed to make it out XD

Poor sweet lil Kylie ;-;

Bahahaahaha XD I bet Seia would deny this, but I'm thinking you're probably very close to the truth!!

"They don't want to see me because I'm a monster who'll destroy my hometown!"

"Oh, that's silly!"

Ahahaha XD; yesss yesss there was a terrible prophecy over their daughter that she would one day destroy her hometown and torture little animals...

Just kidding. XD; I didn't pull that trope for this one!

poor Kylie *hugs her*

So, her parents abandoned her... (at least in her eyes)

(Thanks for the link) :) <3

Ehehe, I'm sure little Kylie appreciates all the hugs she can get. XD;

I'm glad the link was helpful! Webcomics are convenient that way - I can link back to specific pages. :)

Re: what Kylie seems to think, this flashback is very early on in her childhood. She notes she eventually received letters from home in the same link I provided so.. hmm... is something amiss here? ;) That's all I'm going to say!

Well, it seems she is getting a brother, obviously. But why did they never really tell her?

*hugs lil' Kylie again*

Awwwwww! She's soo cute as a kid! Holy crap. I was not prepared for this much cuteness. I feel so bad for her though dang, I wanna give her a hug or something!
Seia is cute too the way he tries to help haha.

Yay, I'm happy you find her cute! <3 XD; I liked drawing Kylie as a kid too, though it was kind of sad to draw her being so sad. >_>

Seia does get better at it over the years (sort of), I promise. XD;;;

Well, things like this are to be expected when you pluck kids out of their families at such a young age.

Yeppers! Like Zinala says, it's almost like child abduction. But for what the guild believes is a good reason, it seems? Given no one has ever been able to stop them, they might be justified. Maybe? :P

Perfect spot for ad libbing:
'...accidentally froze the guild leader during a demonstration and he had me confined to quarters and I know he told my parents and now nobody even comes to the door....'

That would have been AMAZING if it were true XDDD gosh, that's a fun ad-lib!!
