12. fire in paradise

“father, I love Merlin and I don’t care what you think” Alexis spoke sticking up for herself
“Alexia” Uther walked forward and put his hands on her shoulders “I'm happy for you and if you love him as much as you say you do, then who am I to stand in your way” Alexis smiled and hugged her father.
“Sire!” Percival yelled pointing at the doors; they broke from their hug to see that doors of the throne room on fire. They were trapped.
Arthur tried shielding Gwen from the flames but it didn't work, Morgana had disappeared and no one knew where she went, the knights hung around Gaius and Uther while Merlin and Alexis sat in the corner of the hall. Alexis sat holding her knees to her chest while Merlin sat next to her with his arms around her. They both sat there and watched as everyone else in the room Burned and screamed, Alexis cried as she heard her father scream out in pain and as Merlin curled his body over hers to try and keep her safe.


Morgana and Merlin watched from the balcony as the wood around Alexis burned and it didn't take long before her dress started to catch light too. But Morgana didn't seem as happy as Merlin did; this was what she had been working towards for months now, why didn't it feel good?


The heat was unbearable and Alexis and Merlin were stuck. The back of Merlin’s shirt caught fire and he screamed at the top of his lungs. Alexis held him tightly as he cried out in pain.
“It’s going to be OK"  Alexis was terrified, this was paradise and everything was falling down. She closed her eyes and wished this was just a bad dream but the fire caught her leg and she opened her eyes and screamed.


Morgana watched in horror as her sister opened her eyes and screamed as the fire burned at her legs.
“Stop!” Morgana screamed “put the fire out!” she ran down to the yard to find guards pulling Alexis off the burnt podium and laying her on the floor. “Out of my way” she pushed the guards to the side, knelt down on her knees and cradled Alexis’ head on her lap. Alexis opened her eyes slightly and smiled at her sister “I'm sorry” Morgana said with a tear in her eyes “for everything”
“I… for…give…you” she replied weakly Morgana smiled at her sister.
“I love you Alexis”
“What are you doing?” Merlin ran up to them and tried to pull Morgana away but Morgana kept hold on her sister. “Morgana let her go!”
“No, you loved her once remember!” Morgana mumbled a spell under her breath and Merlin suddenly remembered everything.
“What’s…?” Merlin saw Alexis on the floor “Alexis!” he knelt down next to her “Alexis” he said with tears filling his eyes “I didn't save you”
“Mer…lin” she lifted her hand weakly and cupped his face “you… already… saved…me” a tear ran down Merlin’s cheek
“You can’t die, not like this” Alexis smiled
“I love you Merlin”
“I love you too” he kissed her but their kiss was cut short when Alexis closed her eyes. “Alexis?” Merlin said holding her close “Alexis!” she was dead. Morgana started crying, she had realized too late that she loved her sister and that everything she had done was wrong.


Alexis was buried next to Uther and her death was mourned by people not just in Camelot but people in all of the five kingdoms. Morgana and Merlin visited her grave almost every day and merlin had agreed to become Morgana’s adviser so she wouldn't make the same stupid mistake again. But in a town not so far away from Camelot a boy called Arthur mourned for the death of his sister.
