Prompt: 128, Illusion
Merlin is sweet natured, kind hearted, clumsy and soft. It’s not a lie but there is a seldom seen dark depth to him. Those that experience it don’t survive long enough to share his secrets. Corpses don’t tell tales.
He shows Camelot and its King what they need to see but death and destruction are at his core, warring with a softer spirit that is hardening with each new battle.
Merlin isn’t sure where he’s headed but it’s sure to be a future filled with violence and death, one he will meet with Arthur, angry magic crackling, waiting to strike.
