Disclaimer: I don't own any of it!!

Right so, call this a kind of preview for things to come! Most people who reviewed this said that they wanted to see Arthur take on his father, but lots of people also suggested a sequel because of the 'this-is-the-end' feeling of the last chapter. So, this is a preview for 'Fighting Solitude' the sequel to this!

"You think you're so special, Merlin!" Arthur roared, spinning around.

Merlin jerked back in surprise, but Arthur was beyond caring. Fury blinded him, coursing through his veins like poison. He took a step forwards and Merlin pulled away, his eyes widening.

"Arthur, calm down-"

"Don't you dare tell me to calm down after everything you've done! Why are you even here? Why couldn't you have stayed in your village with your precious mother instead of ruining my life?"

Merlin's eyes darkened. "Ruining your life? I am your life, Arthur! Its our destiny, we're two sides of the-"

"For god's sake, Merlin, I - don't - care! I don't care what your dragon said. What makes you think he knows everything anyway?" He glared at Merlin for a few moments, and then turned away abruptly and strode to the window. "Just get out, Merlin," he snarled. "I don't want to look at you. I don't want to talk to you. I don't want anything to do with you."

"Where am I supposed to go? Your father-"


Arthur's voice echoed through the room. Then, he heard the soft, slow footsteps as Merlin turned and left. He shut his eyes and hit the wall hard with his fist, not even noticing the blood that began to trickle down his knuckles.

"My father was right," he whispered. "Magic is evil."

There we go, nice cliffie for the sequel! It probably won't be up for a good while since I have to get past this major block I have with my coursework. Still, I'll do my best and get it up as soon as possible.

See you in the sequel!
