Author's Notes: I haven't drabbled in so long and really miss it. But I have so many other fests to write for right now that I haven't been able to give it a go. So I've decided to try my hand at a traditional 100 word drabble. Also, just as I'm posting this I came up with an idea for an Arthur & Excalibur drabble. But I will resist the temptation to write it too!

He watched the sword’s blade catch in the light as he hefted it from his shoulder.

Excalibur, such a thing of beauty. Thrumming with the ancient power of ages. Forged in a dragon’s breath. Especially for Arthur, the once and future king.

Merlin treasured this sword, he kept it close to Arthur’s side, ready for whatever danger they may face. This sword had won Arthur many victories and as Merlin lowered it to the ground, his eyes downcast. He hoped and prayed to the triple goddess that it would give him one more. For soon a storm was coming: Camlann.
