My dear Gaius:
I turn to you for I feel lost and alone and I don’t know who to trust. It is every mother’s fate to think her child is special. Yet I would give my life that Merlin were not. Ours is a small village and he is so clearly at odds with people here that if he were to remain, I fear what will become of him. He needs a hand to hold, a voice to guide, someone that might help him find a purpose for his gifts. I beg you if you understand a mother’s love for her son, keep him safe. And may God save you both.
