Merlin wasn’t expecting Arthur to remember a lot, but the sheer magnitude of how much Arthur didn’t know shocked him. When Merlin first pulled him out the lake, Arthur couldn’t remember his manservant’s name, let alone anything else.
“I know there’s no replacing what we’ve lost,” Merlin had said that day. “You need time.”
Time. How much time would it take really though? Days, months, years? After all the time Merlin had waited a few years seemed like nothing in comparison, but now that Arthur was here with him, as many as a few days seemed far too long.
“What happened on that last day Merlin?” Arthur asked yet again, pulling Merlin out of his thoughts.
“I couldn’t save you.” Merlin said simply.
