Author's Notes: I'm really sorry for posting until now...
The sharp pain in his side makes his sight go blurry, cold spreads around, takes a hold of him and Merlin has a hard time staying awake. But he fights through it, grinds his teeth trying to keep himself in the present, forget about how close Morgana had been. He can barely move, shivers as he holds on. Thoughts of Mordred and Arthur flood his head, he can't stop them. Not knowing how this will end makes him afraid of not having a future, of losing Arthur. He gasps, looks up at the sky, the moon shining down on him. Merlin only knows he has to go back. Merlin needs to protect his King. Help Arthur build a better and more just place where both of them can live without fear of prosecution. Together they can build the world they want. He can't let Finna's sacrifice be for nothing. With every ounce of strength he has left in his body he speaks.
