Author's notes: Part 1, Part 2

“I’m sorry.  We’ve searched a wide radius from where their signal last came from but we haven’t found them.”  The Coast Guard officer was solemn as he informed the families that the search for the boat was being called off.  It had been two weeks and the odds of anyone still being alive at that point were so low as to be nearly impossible.  “At this point we have to presume them all dead. I am sorry.”

Morgana buried her head in Uther’s chest.  “It’s my fault. I asked him to go with Erica.  If I hadn’t-”

“Shh.  It’s not your fault.  He could have said no.”  Uther held his daughter tightly.  “Arthur is- was- Well, he’s always good at saying no when he wants to.”

Morgana looked up, tears streaming down her cheeks.  “You think he’s still alive.”

Uther smiled gently at Morgana.  “I have to.”
