We are finally truthful with each other
In which the story ends
The first fact from me in a long time:
Do you know who I am yet?
From all of the clues that I have given you, all of the lies that I have fed, all of the secrets I’ve kept, the story I have told, do you know my identity? I will give you one final hint if you don’t know yet – I am definitely not Death.
The answer to my identity:
I am Merlin.
I am that person who came to be lost and who found himself once again in a human woman and he broke when she died and was fixed once more when he held his baby girl his arms.
I beg of you to forgive me, I doubt that Gwen ever will now because of all the secrecy, but maybe if you can forgive me then that will gave some kind of closure, some kind of purpose to finally cross over to Avalon.
Some facts that I will clear up:
- I knew I was going to die because I knew that when I gave my magic up once I entered the human word and passed it on to Gwen when she was born that there would come a day where my body would no longer cope with having no magic. I would die so tragically and leave Gwen all alone in an ever changing world.
- Those deaths over the Loch were just coincidences that the author and I picked up on and after all everybody loves a good campfire story.
I don’t know if I want to go to Avalon, if I want to leave the life of my daughter behind, because if I do go to Avalon I will see Morgana but I will never be able to watch over Gwen until she dies, I hope that doesn’t die for another millennia or so. Fate always works in mysterious ways though.
I would like to tell you that Gwen learned how to be a magic wielder as quick as I had as a novice but she did not. I would like to tell you that she and Robin Hood was always so fabulously in love with absolutely no problems what so ever but I cannot. I would like to tell you that this story had a happy ending but it does not, not totally anyway.
I may not be able to keep my promises half the time but you can trust me on this:
I am forever haunted by my lies and that is how this story ends.
