“I’m sorry,” Merlin whispered against Arthur’s cold skin.

“Please don’t leave me,” he cried into Hunith’s unseeing eyes.

“I should have done more,” Merlin choked out as Gwen breathed her last.

“I couldn’t stop it,” he told the solders as the Bubonic Plague ripped through Camelot.

“It’s not my fault,” Merlin sighed as the Great Fire spread across London, decimating the city.

“What’s the point?” he breathed as the Blitz bombs began to drop.

“No more apologies,” Merlin said, then turned away and climbed into the spaceship, leaving a never-returned Arthur and the last of his hope behind. “I’m done.”
