Hunith walked her son to the edge of the village. The group saw that he had a small pack on his bag.

"So, don't go getting drunk" said Hunith as she straightened his jacket.

"When do I ever do that?" asked Merlin. The group looked at Gwaine, who had a cheeky grin on his face.

"In Camelot, there is no mother to stop you" said Hunith.

"Well, there's Gaius" joked Merlin with a cheeky grin.

"And he better keep you away from alcohol, you know what your like. One sniff of a barmaids apron and your doing a jig on the table with Will" joked Hunith.

"But in the morning, I am puking everyone while the spoons do the jig, so I don't think I'll be doing any drinking, I promise to write as soon as I am there" Merlin kissed his mother's forehead.

"Write to me every single day" Hunith said.

"Yes, and if I get a job, I'll be sending you my wages" said Merlin.

"Oh no, you don't have to do that" said Hunith.

"Oh yes, of course I do. I better go before I'm late and Gaius is panicking" joked Merlin.

"Of course, oh and Merlin, your father would be proud of you" said Hunith.

Merlin blinked, before nodding and walking away, aware that Hunith was watching him as he left.

"So what now?" asked Arthur.

"We go and meet up with the new guide, and Merlin and Will and we get to watch Merlin and Arthur in Camelot" smiled Freya.

And with a bright flash, the group left Hunith waving goodbye to her son.
