Merlin surveyed the scene from the top of the hill. This were going rather badly for Arthur and his men. It seems they had arrived just in time to save the day.
“What did you see, Merlin?” Kilgharrah asked.
“A whole lot of trouble for Arthur,” he replied. “We’d better get down there quickly.”
“Climb on. We’ll turn the tide in no time at all.” Kilgharrah chuckled.
After Merlin had climbed on Kilgharrah, the dragon rose into the air then swooped down over the battle to the enemy side. While Kilgharrah breathed fire now and then, Merlin cast spells to disarm and disable the enemy. A cheer rose from Arthur’s side as the dragon and its rider soared over them.
They landed in a small clearing near Arthur, who came over when Merlin had hopped down. “Many thanks to you, Merlin and Kilgharrah. You saved us.”
Merlin smiled and put his hand on his dragon. “We were made for this, Arthur.” Then he gave his best friend a hug. Together they walked into the remains of the battle, fighting side by side until the day was won.
