Every year, on the day of Arthur’s death, with a millennium of heartache and loss gutting him, Merlin returns to Avalon. Shouting out his fury at having to wait so long, whispering his grief at letting Arthur die, he stands there, swaying, begging the gods to grant him this one wish.

“All I ask is that Arthur returns to me. That….  that he forgives me.”

But there is only wind and the waves, and once in a while, the harsh sound of tires tearing pavement as lorries fly past.

Shoulders slumping, Merlin turns to go.

As a figure stumbles out.
