6. Merlin

The hour that Lilliana was forced to wait without Camille was the by far guarenteed the WORST hour of her life. One hour spent in fear of her friend's life. Max and James had started pacing and running up and down the stairs. She sat there in complete and utter silence, as she listened to the distant footsteps of the idiots Camille decided should tag along, letting out the occasional sob as tears still streamed her face. The boy who came with Sir Perceval and the Court Physician, Gaius, was sitting beside her. Merlin seemed pretty tall for his age, even though Lilliana didn't know what the average height for people were in these days.

"So..." Merlin said, trying to break the awkward silence that was about to collapse onto them if someone didn't break it soon. "Why don't you tell me about yourself?" he enquired.

"Well, my name is Lilliana, which you probably knew. Um... I'm fifteen, and erm.....--" Lilliana couldn't hold the book secret in any longer. She had to tell someone, and if it had to be anyone-- Merlin was probably her best choice at getting back home. She quieted her voice into a whisper. "Can you keep a secret?"

"Of course." Merlin whispered back.

"So, here's how we actually got here. Camille and I had an assignment for our History class. Camille chose a book whilst we were in the library, and it was an old book. With yellowing pages and everything. It said it was written by Emrys. By you. So we took it back to our dorm--" Merlin looked at her funny. "Our sleeping chamber," she corrected herself. "We looked at it, then I fell asleep and Camille was reading all of these other books, too. She came across the one you wrote, you called it Camelot. She flipped through the pages and found two very beautifully decorated pages. Camille, you see, has this habit of mouthing the words she reads, so she ended up accidentally saying what was written in the two pages. Then there was this entire situation with a glowing book, faces in horse poo and now, Camille bleeding to death from falling down the stairs. And I believe that in the book, there's..." Lilliana looked around to make sure nobody else was listening. "Magic."

She stared him, locking his dark blue eyes with her stunningly bright blue ones.

"I believe you." he said finally.

"You do? Well-- I mean, of course you do. You're the most powerful--" Lillianan was cut off by Merlin's hand clamping her mouth shut.

"Nobody knows still." Merlin said. "The only people who know are: Sir Lancelot, Gaius, and Arthur."

"Well that's great, isn't it? Isn't Arthur supposed to know? Speaking of him, where is King Arthur?" Lilliana asked.

"Lilliana, King Arthur is... he's... dead." Merlin choked out, trying to hold back a sob of his own.
