True Love

"Another proposal of marriage from Lady Vivian," Arthur sighed. "She never gives up."

Merlin nodded, expertly whisking Vivian's gold-embossed letter away from Arthur's line of sight.

"Is there really nothing that can be done for her?" Arthur asked.

"It'd take a genuine true love's kiss, and I don't imagine anyone ever loved her with all their heart. At any rate, she didn't reciprocate."

"Indeed." Arthur shook his head. "Condescending and self-satisfied, Vivian wasn't at all lovable. I think she was only ever in love with herself."

"Oh!" Merlin suddenly had an idea. Could the solution really be that simple? Soon, he had a brief letter ready for Arthur's signature.

'Dearest Vivian,
Please do this one thing for me: Kiss your own reflection thoroughly in the mirror.
All will soon be well,
Your Arthur.'

Several weeks passed before the next letter from Vivian arrived in Camelot. It read; 'Arthur, I have spent years being true to you, you utter cad. You made me think I was in love. No more! If you ever approach me again, my father will kill you, and I will cheer him on!'

Vivian's love spell curse had been broken at last.
