Arthur took one last, short breath as his vision faded. He knew it was the end.

But of course, Merlin could never just leave well enough alone.

Arthur felt his soul being ripped away from death’s cold embrace, felt hot fire pumping through his veins. It was like his whole body had been set ablaze, burning with life.

His eyes cleared just as the gold faded from Merlin’s. He took a shaky breath as he stared down at the prince’s still pale face, blinking away the tears that had begun to form.

“Welcome back, dollop head.”
