Reseme can't help but think about her past and future as she walks through the hallways of the castle. There are so many times she has gotten lost in the castle it's not even funny. So many times Arthur (also known as Prince Arthur when in public) has pulled pranks on her keeping from straying too far into the castle in fear it would happen again. There are times where she feels as though she is a traitor for giving up her past life and basically turning her back on her people. She knows she was lucky to receive the opportunities she has, such as getting to live in Camelot and getting to work in the castle! She seems to for the first time in a long time be content with her life and feel safe. Though…there are times when it feels as though something is missing. She shrugs it off and heads to find Gaius. "Gaius I could use some help here!
"Gaius jumps at the sound of his very loud assistant and friend barging through the door carrying quite a huge bundle in her arms(at least too big for her).She throws some of the load onto the table, startling him once more. "You wanted the rest in your room right? "She doesn't even wait for an answer as she already knows and doesn't like anyone to confirm her theories anyway. She comes back out hair a mess and that known smile still on her face. It never ceases to amaze Gaius the stuff this girl can go through and still come out with a smile. She strolls over to him and plops down into the chair beside him, being as distracting as always. "So anything else you need me to do?" She always so persistent in helping him. "No Reseme that will be all.
"He says without even bothering to look up. She sighs out of boredom and slight irritation. "Well fine I have plenty of other important things to do, interesting things with other interesting people who need my help. "She starts to head towards the door. Gaius here's her footsteps start to slow. "Are you sure you don't need any help?" She is truly desperate to not go to do chores quite yet. "Goodbye Reseme." She sighs in frustration "Goodbye Gaius." Feeling slightly guilty for sending her away he speaks up once more actually looking up this time to show her he's being sincere "Oh and Reseme?" She turns to look at him slightly confused "Thank you". She smiles before taking her leave with a quick nod and a shout from the hallway "See you tonight!"
Merlin was walking through the streets of Camelot just amazed to even be here! He thought he possibly knew where he was supposed to go…yeah sure he did. He knew he was supposed to be seeing his uncle Gaius (his mother's idea). He was excited and was just hoping that he could start a new life here. Who knew maybe he would actually make more than one friend this time. If he was being honest he knew the sadness of missing home would probably settle in sooner or later. To say he was nervous was an understatement. His thoughts were cut short when he stepped up to the door of his new home. He takes a deep breath and opens the door.
Well let's just say Merlin was quite confused when he opened the door and did not find his new gaurdian in the room. "Hello?" He turned at the sound of a door being barged open. He was surprised to see a young women walk in as if she lived here. She was beautiful, she had this aura of life and kindness. Her light brown hair pulled out of her face into a once elegant bun with two braids going through the sides now hung loosely from a hard day's work. Her face was as pale as the moonlight. She looked up and he now could see that her eyes were a mixture of a light emerald green and ocean or sky blue, he could not tell for sure seeing as they were so vibrant and mixed. Her eyes widened realizing it was not only her in the room anymore. "Oh hello!" Her voice was so cheerful yet soothing and her smile was contagious for he found his lips quirking up. "Uh hi….sorry to ask but, who are you."
She suddenly realized she had just come in like a fool dropping things and having small talk. "Oh right sorry, I'm Reseme." She held out her hand for him to shake while trying not to spill the contents she was holding. "I'm Merlin. Would you like some help with those?" She seemed pleased and actually slightly surprised that someone was willing to help. "Yeah sure." She handed him some of her load and set the rest on a table while telling him where to put his. "Well thank you. So Merlin...is there anything I can help you with?" He realized she may feel slightly violated at having a random stranger in this place. "Oh I'm looking for a man called Gaius." She smiled at this. "Oh that's easy. Gaius is a good friend of mine and I know for a fact he is here." She walks past him into the center of the room. He likes the fact that she slightly skips with each step, as though her personality is showing through the way she walks. He almost runs into her when she stops suddenly and looks up. Merlin follows her gaze and see's the man he thinks is Gaius. ?" It seemed he was to trying to find a book…or a box….ok the point was he was upstairs looking for something on a bookshelf! "Gaius." He tried clearing his throat "Gaius." The man turned around and literally fell through the railing! Without even thinking about the consequences I would no doubt face later I pulled a basket sort of thing to where Gaius would be with my magic about just in time for him to land.
He bounced back a little quicker than I was expecting of for an old man. He turned to see what exactly had just happened. He turned to look at Merlin "What did you just do!" Merlin was at a loss for words "Umm…" Gaius was quite persistent "Tell me! If anyone had seen it." "Umm that was nothing I just..." Gaius was growing more agitated by the second "I know what it was but where did you learn it?" He demanded. Merlin was trying hard to stay calm but was slowly failing
"I didn't." Gaius was getting more curious "How did you know it?" Merlin was quick to say "I don't." "Where did you study?" "I-I didn't!" Gaius took a step forward "Are you lying to me boy?" Merlin was quickly growing tired of explaining himself to this stranger. "What do you want me to say?" "I want the truth." "I was born like this. "Merlin was seriously hoping Gaius would understand soon. "That's impossible!" He started to turn away as though he needed some space from this argument, then he came back as if the obvious had just struck him. "Who are you?" Merlin was actually slightly waiting for this considering it wasn't every day you had a random stranger come into your house. "Oh. I have a note" He fumbled through his bag and handed it to the man he assumed was Gaius. Gaius looked around as if he was thinking "I don't have my glasses." Merlin decided to just go ahead and introduce himself hoping it would help, "I'm Merlin." He smiled as Gaius finally seemed to recognize the situation. "Hunnith's son! I wasn't expecting you until Wednesday." This slightly surprised Merlin. "It is Wednesday." Gaius seemed to feel slightly dazed "You can go set your things in that room." He pointed to what Merlin assumed would be his room. "OH ok…You're not going to tell anyone about..."Merlin pointed to the mess of now broken railing. Gaius shrugged as if this was no big deal. "No I don't see a reason to." "Thanks." Merlin turned to go to his room. "Oh Merlin I should say thank you." There was a smile shared that promised something along the lines of friendship. Which both men were happy to find. Merlin walked to his room thinking maybe this would be a good day. Though they both seem to have forgotten there had been one more person in the room.
