He recognized them, the bones. The aura of magic still surrounded them, was glowing as intensely as ever he’d remembered. Merlin looked up at the Museum’s crowning glory, at the bones so carefully set-up high into the gallery.

The hordes of school children echoed, whispering of dinosaurs and how big they were and did all of them have wings. Teachers laughed at their antics, shepherded them out. The crowds quieted then, grew thin as closing time approached.

Surrounded by guards and alarms, Merlin could only remember and weep for what was gone. His kin, forever lost.

Only the bones remained.
