Mum always told him his head was in the clouds. But he couldn’t help himself. The clouds, this time, were billowing white in the blue sky and just begging to be turned into the most fantastical shapes.

Who could blame him if he gave them a nudge, made castles float over his head, butterflies flit across the heavens, cats chase unicorns? They were calling him, as much as the magic he used to shape them.

But when Mum caught him, dragging him back into the darkness of their hut, she begged him to stop.

Outside, the clouds turn into rain.

Poor Merlin. So hard to have such a beautiful gift and not be able to use it.

I do, too. Sometimes the clouds are just so perfect. :D
