------------------------------
All of his ships-in-a-bottle were ruined. Every single one, ships that had taken him weeks to create, had somehow been pulled from the bottles and scattered around the room.

It looked like the Battle of Trafalgar, all wreckage and loss. In the midst of it all, Merlin-the-menace, that golden-eyed miscreant, that damnable cat, sat licking his paws. Purring his triumph.

Arthur wasn’t even sure how it happened. The bottles were still sealed shut.  How could anyone, even a cat, free the ships without breaking the bottles first?

If Arthur didn’t know better, he’d say Merlin had magic.

Merlin just meowed.
