Fingers shaking her hands slowly folded his patched clothes. She tried to savor every moment that he stood by her side; silently packing up his most valued belongings.
Finally the moment she dreaded, came. He swung his pack onto his shoulder, and adjusted his bandana not meeting her eyes.
"I'll miss you." he said finally, looking up; his eyes glistening with unshed tears with the prospect of leaving.
"Shh, shh. Don't think about that." She crooned comforting him. She stroked his face lovingly, she had watched him grow up. Turn from a from a young boy to a young warlock.
The sun rose outside the window as Mother and son embraced.
""Its time." He whispered in her ear. "Promise you'll come and find me if anything bad ever happens?"
She pulled back so she could look him in the eye. "I promise."
She kissed him on the cheek as they walked out together. "You'll need to walk fast if you want to get to camelot by nightfall tomorrow." She said. He hugged her one last time before turning on his heel and walking into the forest.
So strong. She thought. My little Merlin.
