“You! You do have magic,” Morgana practically yelled.
“Can you say it a little louder? I don't think the King just down the hall heard you,” Merlin replied.
“But you've been hiding it from me the whole time! Why didn't you tell me before?”
“I was warned not to—you're close to the King and I like my head where it is.”
“Has it ever occurred to you that because I have magic too I wouldn't be so quick to tell Uther?”
“I'm sorry, Morgana. I was scared, but I'm here now.”
“Then you'll help me?”
She walked over and took his hands. “Thank you, Merlin. I-I want to repay you somehow.”
“I don't need anything, Morgana . . .”
“Sure you do. Look at you!” She'd stepped back and was looking him over. “You're wearing rags!”
“It's what I have . . .”
“Well, I'm going to pay Gwen to make you two new shirts.”
“Morgana . . .”
“You can't talk me out of it.”
“Ugh, fine. Just no fancy cloth, okay?”
“All right. It's a deal—you'll teach me magic and I'll give you new shirts.”
“Can we start now?”
Merlin laughed. “Why not?”
And that's how Morgana learned to start fires on purpose instead of by accident.
