Sorry for my rather long hiatus. German Exchange was...interesting. So this was a prompt from Squiddler, that I got a while ago. Not exactly modern day Merlin, but definately not Camelot era Merlin either. Thanks to Caught Ink Handed (love the name XD. It was a Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference btw) for reviewing.
"Ah, crap!" Merlin cursed as he dropped the hot iron on the floor. It had been a pretty abysmal day, despite it being so hot and sunny outside, and all he'd wanted was to go back to his quiet little London bakery, take a nice hot bath, and put on some nice fresh clothes.
He'd done all right up until the nice fresh clothes bit, but everything had started to go a bit pear shaped after the bath, hence the reason why the warlock was stood half naked in front of the stove, feverishly trying to iron his shirt.
It wasn't working.
He sucked at his burnt finger, running over to the water pump to hastily cool it down. Leaving the burning hot iron on the dry wooden floor.
It was the tiny wisp of smoke that alerted him to the problem, but by that point it was already too late.
The world's greatest warlock could only stand and watch as the whole of Pudding Street went up in flames.
Yes! Merlin started the great fire of London. Prompts and ideas please! And reviews, whether you've got anything to say or not.
