It has been the craziest past two days of my life. Yesterday morning I was so excited that my father had recovered from the plague and now I'm just happy to be alive.
When my father was the only one to recover the King sent Arthu-...the Prince over to try and figure out what was going on. Apparently they searched our house and found a magical poultice! I know nothing of a poultice but apparently it made the king believe I was a witch.
I have never been more frightened in my life. After I had left dad to go start my work for Morgana like I do every morning the guards and the Prince came storming in and arrested me on charges of sorcery. I don't think I've ever cried more in my life.
Morgana stood up for me but the king wouldn't hear of it.
So there I sat in the cold dank dungeons and Merlin came to visit me. He was so sure he would get me out that it just caused me to want to cry even more. I didn't think he was going to be able to. I was charged with sorcery after all and I've never known Uther to change his mind on someone charged with the crime. Morgana came to see me as well. I felt so bad upsetting her like that. She already has to deal with all her nightmares.
Those two are the best friends a person could ever have.
So early this morning before I was scheduled to be burned (Uther's orders had moved up my exicution and changed it to burning instead of decapitation. Just thinking about it gives me the shivers.), dad, Morgana, and Merlin all came bustling into the dungeon crying I was free.
Can you believe it? Apparently there was some creature in the water making it bad and making everyone sick. An avanc? Something like that. I was more concerned with being out than what had happened at the time they told me. Anyways Lady Morgana, Merlin, and Prince Arthur all went down into the water supply and slayed the beast is what I've heard.
Morgana keeps saying it was mostly Merlin's doing. I have to say I'm eternally grateful. He didn't have to go through so much trouble to save me. It just shows how wonderful my friends are.
I think I'm going to save away my extra wages to buy something nice for all of them. It probably won't impress Arthur or Morgana but it's the thought that counts isn't it? Just a token of gratitude?
Well I must be off. Dad wants me to sit down to dinner with him. I don't think he wants to let me out of his sight.
as my life almost was.
