The Future

Arthur was dead. Hope had dwindled into nothingness.

Camelot was no more.

Standing alone in the ruins of everything he'd worked so hard to nurture and protect, Merlin wept.

"Hush now, hush," a gentle voice soothed him.

Bewildered, Merlin blinked awake in the night. The calm flame of the single candle by their bedside illuminated Arthur's face.

"That dream again?" Arthur whispered, pulling Merlin closer. "Won't happen. Our best years are ahead. Together, we'll create a Camelot they'll remember centuries from now."

Merlin smiled, sinking blissfully back into sleep in Arthur's arms.

The nightmare was fading. It was already gone.
