Scars (A Camelot Drabble)

Author: jelazakazone
Title: Scars
Rating: G
Character/s:Uther, Merlin
Summary: Uther and Merlin have scars
Warnings: none
Word Count:100
Prompt: #3: scars for camelot drabble
Author's Notes: No beta. All errors mine.



Most of Uther’s scars are visible; none of Merlin’s are.

Every skirmish, battle, war that Uther fought left trophies. He soothes himself, rubbing the one that runs down his forehead. He had seen the worst and survived.

Merlin’s soul is criss-crossed with wounds because a king had decreed magic outlawed. When Merlin can not use his magic, he dies a little inside.

Uther thinks his scars strengthened him, but they are merely a facade. They will fade into the mists, forgotten.

Merlin’s soul is strengthened by those thousand tiny deaths. They are the forge by which he will be known.
