Arthur's coronation begins at dawn.


*


By evening, he is in the forest, heading Merlin’s way. Merlin knows the shape and strength of him by now, the way Albion thrills beneath his feet. When Arthur arrives at the door of his hut, Merlin is waiting.

“Is it done?” As if he has to ask.

Arthur bows his head, the golden circlet catching the light. “It’s done.”


*


Arthur may think that sparing his life is reward enough, but for Merlin the true prize is the king himself. Quiet now that the first rush is over, he lies in Merlin’s bed, crown discarded, watching while Merlin conjures a prancing deer out of the flames.

“You knew I would come,” he says, at length. “Is that another of your gifts – can you see the future?”

“Only ours,” Merlin says, abandoning the fire to kiss him soundly. “And only because I know you so well.”
