The Rescue

"Now that I'm here, what have you got to say for yourself?"


"That is my name, yes."

"I did nothing wrong. A toddler was about to fall into a cooking-fire in the lower town..."


"The neighbour started yelling about sorcery just because I doused the flames to save the child."

"From thirty feet away, without water?"

"Ehm, yes, no, I mean— that's not right."

"What was it then? Forty feet?"

"I only did what any decent person would do!"

"Indeed. Well, Gaius spoke to father and convinced him that your accuser is a patient of his, not right in the head, given to wild imaginings."

"Oh. That's...."

"So you're free to go."

"Thank you, Arthur."

"This cell stinks. Come along. And Merlin...."


"That's the fifth time someone accuses you of sorcery. The next time you don't use magic, do try to be more subtle about it!"
