Characters: Merlin, Arthur
Summary: Remember, O man, that dust thou art, and to dust thou shalt return.
Warnings: Dark!Merlin
Word Count: 100
Prompt: Burn

His king gave no order, but none was required. Years of secrets and silence had made words unnecessary. When Camelot was threatened, Merlin acted. And when the acrid burning of flesh stung his eyes, he reminded himself what was at stake. He thought of the caves where he had first killed for Arthur in secret, and he told again the lie he had woven that day: that one man's innocence was a small price to pay for a kingdom. He whispered his flames into the wind, and they poured down over the southern armies like a deadly tide.

For Arthur.
