2. not so different after all

It was a dark night in Camelot and everyone was sleeping except for one person, Morgana. She tossed and turned in her bed but the image in her head was so, so horrible she couldn't get it out. Her eyes opened slightly and her eyes glow gold creating a cloud above her head. She opened her eyes and saw the cloud; she didn't know what to think. She took a deep breath and her eyes glow again causing it to start raining in her chambers. Morgana screamed and before she knew it, the cloud was gone! Alexia ran in and put her arms around her older sister
“It’s OK, it’s OK” she stroked her hair “it’s only a dream”
“No” Morgana pulled away but kept hold of Alexia’s arms “it wasn't . Alexia sat for a moment then realized Morgana was soaking wet!
“Why are you all wet?”
“It was magic” Morgana cried “I have magic!” tears ran down her face and she hugged Alexia tighter.
“It’s OK” she said holding her sister
“IT’S NOT!” Morgana looked at her
“It is because I have magic too” Morgana didn't know how to reply except with once question
“How long?” Alexia smiled
“I was born with it” Morgana smiled at her little sister. She knew they had different mothers but this; this was a surprise but a good one. “Now come on let’s get you dry clothes and you can stay in my chamber tonight” Alexia led her sister out of the soaked room and back to her own where she gave her a dry night dress and a warm place to stay for the rest of the night.

The next morning Alexia was sat on the table in Gaius’s chambers telling him about the night before.
“Well that’s terrible, poor Morgana mustn't know what to think any more” he sighed
“No Gaius it’s good!” Alexis smiled “do you know how long I've been waiting for someone else to have magic so I can have someone to talk to?”
“Well you have me” Gaius put his hand on her shoulder.
“It’s not the same Gaius” she sigh “I'm sorry” Gaius smiled
“I understand anyway can you help me clean up I have a guest coming in a few hours”
“More like a few seconds” a boy stood in the doorway and smiled. He had deep blue eyes and black hair.
“Merlin!” Gaius exclaimed “I thought you weren't coming till later” Merlin shrugged
“Thought I’d surprise you” he noticed Alexia sat on the table “though I think you had the same idea.” Alexia got off the table and smiled
“Merlin this is Alexia p-“
“My name’s Alexis” Alexia cut Gaius off.
“My lady” he bowed taking her hand and kissing it gently. Alexis blushed and hid her face
“Alexis please” she smiled. Merlin nodded
“Alexis it is then” they stood looking at each other for a while before Gaius spoke
“Haven’t you got somewhere to be Alexis? Like with Morgana…”
“Oh!” Alexis broke out of her trance like feeling “of course thank you Gaius” she walked past Merlin to the door “it was nice meeting you” she smiled before walking away to find her sister. Merlin watched her leave, then once she was gone turned to Gaius and said one simple word
“Wow”. The boy stood for a moment wondering how Gaius was going to react but he wasn't left waiting for long.
“You’re not here to flirt, Merlin” he said turning towards the bookcase “you’re here to be kept safe”
“Not likely” he mumbled looking at the floor.
“What was that?” Gaius asked keeping his eyes fixed on the bookcase
“Well the first thing I see when I walk into Camelot is a boy my age being hung for magic and a girl so beautiful I could faint!” Gaius turned around “and don’t have a chance!” Gaius stared for a moment then replied
“You and Alexis have more in common than you think”
“Like what?!”
“Well for instance you both have both suffered the loss of a parent” Merlin’s checks burnt with embarrassment how could he not have known that? “And” Gaius said sitting down “you both have magic”. Merlin’s jaw dropped how could a girl like that have magic?
“But she’s, she’s”
“Not so different after all”
