----------------------------------------------

Savage, his face wet with grief, Merlin kept telling himself that it wasn’t real, that the lifeless body of his friend, his king, was merely sleeping, that it was all some kind of impossible nightmare. That he’d wake up soon and….

He’d promised to keep Arthur safe. He’d promised to keep Arthur alive. He’d promised oh so much.

But instead, as Arthur, unbreathing, dead, slipped away from him into the mists of eternity, Merlin could only think of what he should have done and could have done, and shoved all his infinite regret into the remains of a shattered heart.
