A Grudge and a Secret

"Sorcerers!" old Simmons mutters venomously into the air. "They go around poisoning wells, they steal babes from their cribs at night. King Uther's right. Sorcerers are evil."

Merlin is small, but old enough to be angry and offended. He tenses, his right hand twitching.

Hunith grips her son's shoulder firmly, steadying him, warning him. "Let's go home."

Merlin looks up. Her face is strangely pale with emotion.

"Never mind that nonsense," Hunith tells him as they walk. "The old man is bitter because the woman he once wanted to court chose someone else. Someone magic. Someone who is long gone."
