4. The first day

On his very first day inside the city, Merlin was lost. He needed to meet the court physician but ended up in the city centre. There was some sort of gathering there so he wandered in to see what the fuss was about.

In the middle of the crowd were a guillotine and a man’s neck placed on it. King Uther’s voice had reverberated around the city.

“This man is guilty of practicing magic in the Kingdom. Camelot’s law is to execute him for his crime. I hope he shall be an example to all those who dare go against our laws.”  With that the axe fell and the magician’s head rolled to the floor staining the ground with his blood.

Merlin was aghast with horror at the atrocity and fear for himself. But in all the other faces he looked there was simply relief. Clearly, they all believed that magicians could not be trusted either and deserved death. All except one that is. A beautiful, pale white face looking down at him through one of the windows in the castle and as her green eyes met his blue ones, they both found solace in their shared disgust.
