It was quiet by the lake. Water, already covering Merlin’s knees, lapping against him in tiny wavelets, beckoned him in. He took another step, listening to the wash of white noise against his thighs, the sounds, whispering of peace and oblivion, a welcome counterpoint to the desolation inside his head.

He only hoped that Avalon’s lake would give him a final peace.
