Merlin ducked around the corner to keep from being seen by the guards. He had been out as Dragoon and had forgotten his potion. The last thing he needed was to be dragged to the dungeon by a bunch of overeager guards. He moved on to Gaius chambers after they left.
Gaius looked up as the door opened. “I'm guessing, you forgot something.” Gaius held up a bottle and waved it at Merlin.
Merlin sighed. He took the bottle and downed its contents. Suddenly, he transformed into his younger self. “That's much better.”
“You need to be more careful.” Gaius shook his head and went back to work.
“I know.” Merlin looked at the empty bottle. “I need to find a better way.”
“Yes, you do. Now get to bed.” Gaius shooed him off to his room.
“Good night Gaius.” Merlin put the bottle down and went to bed.
