Merlin stared at Summer in shock and disbelief. How was she standing there? She was dead! He tentatively reached out and put a hand on her shoulder to see if she was solid and real before pulling her into a hug. -You owe me a damn good explanation.- He didn’t care that he was crying. She was alive, and it seemed like a miracle.

Summer didn’t get a chance to say anything before her face was muffled in Merlin’s shoulder. She made an acquiescent kind of sound, patting his back.
