Word Count: 100 (on my software at least)
Author's Notes: This is my first one hundred word drabble. It was not at all what I was expecting!
The invitation arrived on the rainiest of days. By the time Merlin got it home, it was soaked through: the fancy script that read “Mr Merlin Emrys and guest” was ruined, the non-waterproof ink swirled into an oil slick.
The envelope was sealed with a wax monogram. With shaking hands, Merlin broke the seal and removed the embossed parchment inside. As soon as he read, “Arthur Pendragon and Guinevere Smith request the honour of your presence at their marriage…,” he ripped the paper into shreds. If tears fell, it was easy to pretend they were merely drops of rain.
