Thanks for still reading guys! Please review!

Chapter 7 – No More Secrets

"I know I wasn't dreaming…" I muttered to myself.

~o~

Arthur's POV

"Oh so you finally decided to show up then" I said angrily as my useless servant waltz into my chambers.

"Sorry, ruff night's sleep…" He trailed off. "What do you need done?" His face was almost bored but tinged with worry or guilt.

"Merlin is there something wrong?" I asked genuine concern.

"Eh, it's nothing. Just a dream I guess." I muttered.

"You guess? Merlin what's going on, we hardly need to keep secrets anymore" he reasoned.

I sighed "yes but I don't think you'll like this one…" I trailed off, starting my chores for the day.

"Merlin, no more secrets" he said sternly, leaning against the bed post and waiting for me to explain.

"Okay" I took a deep breath and plunged straight in. "I had a dream but it was more like a memory; I found you in the woods after you had been attacked by something. You said it was the worst thing we've ever seen. I made the dragon take us back to Camelot, got Gaius to check your injuries and he said they weren't that bad so I went to bed. When I woke up Gaius told me that none of it had happened, but something keeps telling me that it will. Or at least that it's a sign of what's to come."

Arthur stared at me for a moment. "And you're sure it wasn't just a dream?"

"No!" I shouted, adamant that it may be some kind of vision.

"Okay, okay" he sighed. "Well, what can we do? You think you had some kind of warning but do you know what it's warning you of? Something happening to me or the coming of this creature I spoke of?" He asked. "And if we don't know that then there's nothing we can really do, is there." He stated matter-of-factly.

"I've had another dream" I said.

"Oh"

And so I explained about my previous dream with Arthur at the hands of another unknown creature, but I stood by as the king and the people of Camelot watched my failure.

"Would you do that?" he asked quietly "Leave me so as not to reveal your magic"

"No Arthur! I've sworn to not only the dragon but to myself that I would protect you. In the dream, it was as if something was stopping me from thinking logically, blocking my conscious mind somehow" I explained in hope he would understand. He only nodded in response, continuing with his previous task.

"You wanted to know Arthur" I muttered, getting on with my own work.

Don't forget to review! And if you have any suggestions/ideas etc. about the direction of the story, they would be most appreciated as this is all I have written so far and am running out of ideas! Thanks!
