Merlin had long since given up that Arthur would return. He had moved on with his life, and was currently a detective in London. It was the year 2021, and Merlin was doing fine. He had friends. A best friend even, Iris, who was also his partner. He still missed Arthur, but he was no longer waiting for the prat's return. But when bodies start turning up with alarming similarities to things in Merlin's life, he dares to start hoping, that maybe, maybe it was time for Arthur's return. The background on the cover is not mine. I found it online and thought it looked cool so I added words on top of it. Also, Merlin belongs to bbc and the writers/creators of the show. Only the storyline and the OC's are mine.
