Chapter 1

Uther Pendragon was pacing up and down a small expanse of the hall agitatedly. His wife Ygraine had been in labor for a few hours. His twin brother Balinor was sitting in a chair by the door watching Uther for a good few minutes before he said "Uther calm down we don't even know if it is going to be Ygraine who is taken and if she is you will need to be strong for your child that is what she would want. One way or another I will always be here brother we will get through this together as we always have and I am sure that the old religion will at least give you the chance to say goodbye." Uther stopped and looked at his brother "I know I just don't want to lose her but if she does die then at least I still have you and my child."

Right as the words left his mouth the wails of an infant were heard in the room while the midwife yelled "It is a boy, it is a son milady." Uther let out a sigh of relief but then Ygraine screamed again and the midwife yelled "Get some more cloth she is having twins." Uther's eyes got big as he gasped "Twins that complicates things."

For the next hour Uther paced again until his second child took its first breath. "It is another boy milady, by the gods!" she said the last three words with surprise was there something wrong with his second son? Was he ok? Just then Balinor pitched forward in his chair holding his chest as if his heart had seized. Uther's face fell thinking that his brother's life was being taken but Balinor saw the look on his brothers face and shook his head "No Uther that is not why, The magic of the earth jolted when your second son took his first breath and it is more powerful than anything I ever felt before, like the earth herself was rejoicing at the birth of your son. which can only mean that he has magic but a jolt like that means he will be very powerful I'll have to do some research on it." Uther nodded as the midwife came out of the room and bowed to him then said "Your sons are fine sire but the queen fades you know what the laws of magic are a life for a life but I did not choose this. Ygraine came to me after you left for a few hours and commanded me to take her life in exchange for your child. I did not expect twins but it has not upset the balance but Ygraine will die I have no way of stopping it. the old religion is keeping her alive lone enough for you to say goodbye. I am sorry sire." Tears escaped the kings eyes but he said "It is not your fault Nimueh thank you for doing what you could. Can I see her." Nimueh bowed and let Uther and Balinor into the room.

Uther and Ygraine talked a few minutes they decided on naming their sons Arthur and Merlin. With a last I love you the queen of Camelot died and the princes of Camelot where born.

Balinor took both boys and Uther to Uther's chambers a few hours later after King Uther had felt he had stayed long enough crying and now had to attend to his sons.

Uther found out later that night that it was Merlin who had magic but Arthur did not. Uther knew he had sorcerers in his family line Balinor was living proof of that but Ygraine had had sorcerers on her side of the family too. Uther and Balinor were sitting in their sitting chairs in Uther's chambers. Uther held his sons while he and Balinor talked about how they were going to tell the people the bad news but in early morning the doors to Uther's chambers where blasted open with magic and a woman stood in the door. She looked at Merlin and a manic glee spread across her face as if she had found he pray.

Uther yelled "What do you want" and Balinor took a protective post in front of his brother and two nephews. "I only want the boy he is so powerful and I want him." the sorcerer cackled evilly Uther instinctively tightened his hold on his children and was about to say something but Balinor beat him to it "If you want him you are going to have to go through me and a couple dragons and Uther . Leave the boy be." The sorceress snarled but said "Fine, have it your way for now but I will take him sooner or later his power will be mine." and in a gust of wind she was gone.

Balinor turned his brother as Uther asked him what to do and there was only one thing they could do "Uther we need to hid him he must not know who he is till the time is right he must not even know that he is a prince. I'll hid him I will keep him with me and I will train him as he would have gotten trained her and I will train him how to use him magic. We both know that if he stays here that sorceresses will find him and take him." Uther's tears were falling freely now but he knew that Balinor was right. He handed the younger of the twins to Balinor and said "Just make sure he is safe and that he knows I love him." Balinor nodded and he left with the younger of the two princes not to return till be boy came of age.
