- Part 2 of Merlin Oneshots
The druids have grown tired on waiting for destiny to handle things, and they sensed it would involve either Emrys' death or Arthur's before magic is welcomed in Camelot, and they didn't want that. So, they gathered Merlin, Arthur, and the knights of the round table to reveal Merlin's magic in the simplest way possible. Through the memories of his scars. Afterwards, Arthur does not take it well and acts rashly. Will his reaction have severe consequences? Will he be able to fix what he's done? Is there any hope for him, Camelot, or Merlin? Read and Find out!
Arthur makes a startling discovery about Merlin that stirs up some old memories and could completely change things between them.
Arthur stares in horror, unable to look away. At the base of the man’s spine is a large puncture wound, partially healed and scabbed over but still fresh. The mark’s centre is a black star; from each point radiate tendrils, raised and purple but feathering outwards like fine vines until they disappear around his sides and are hidden by his breeches.
