After an eight and a half year absence, Arthur returns to his father’s house for Christmas, determined to find some closure and finally let go of the past. Merlin, as ever, gives him a reason to hold on.
Written for Winter Knights 2018.
Merlin defeated the creature easily. He turned away from his fallen foe and back to the boulder blockade he'd trapped Arthur behind. Too late, Merlin saw the king had found his own way out.
Arthur didn't look angry. He didn't even seem surprised. Just hurt. Merlin froze when he realised Arthur was crying. The king hadn't seemed to notice it, his eyes lost and face void of emotion, but tear tracks lined Arthur's cheeks. Arthur didn't cry. It was a rule the king rarely disobeyed. "No man is worth your tears."
Arthur discovers Merlin's magic. Now everyone he loves has betrayed him. He starts to blame himself and shut everyone out. He throws himself into being king. Meanwhile, Merlin repents for his mistakes and learns about Arthur's past. What is Arthur hiding? Can Merlin win back Arthur's trust?
