The silence as they made their way slowly back to Camelot was almost unbearable, but Merlin couldn't think of a single thing to say or do. His mind was in turmoil, his heart torn with despair, confusion, and fear. He had finally, finally, the answers he needed from his father... and yet, not enough by far. No man is worth your tears, is what Arthur had said, but was that truly the case? Would Arthur think the same if it were his father there, dying before them?
If this wasn't enough, Merlin now had the added responsibility of trying to... what? Control that tricksome dragon into leaving Camelot alone? He hadn't been able to control Killgharrah before, there was next to no chance that he could now.
Heart heavy and mind swirling with various thoughts, Merlin barely heard Arthur as the man stopped, only realising moments later that the man wasn't walking besides him anymore. He frowned, stopping abruptly and turning, a raised eyebrow his only expression as he reluctantly looked over to his master, not wanting Arthur to see how much the Dragon Lord's death had affected him - was still affecting him. It was probably Merlin's imagination, but the weight of the carved dragon that the man had given him felt heavier in his pocket than it ever had done. With a sigh he trooped over to Arthur, swallowing hard. "We're stopping?"
