Baying for blood, the dogs were nearing.

Catching his breath, his limbs trembling with exhaustion and the dregs of betrayal, Merlin looked up to see Arthur on the ridge, shouting out orders to find the sorcerer, to bring him back alive. That the pyre awaited.

A sea of red cloaks swept down into the woods, the dogs, too. And Arthur, sword raised, his face snarled in hatred.

Merlin had trusted the wrong person. He’d trusted Arthur.

His reward, to be hunted like an animal.

The shouts grew closer. Brushing aside tears, he did the only thing he could.

Merlin ran.
