“So how are we going to get into the Castle” asked Gail as Merlin set her down .
“Don’t you worry my dear I have a plan.” Merlin waved his hand and just out of nowhere two beautiful horses appeared one white and one black both with fine reins, bridels, saddles and full, plush saddle bags.
“Way to go” Screamed Gail, “not bad for the guy who said no random magic?”
“This is not random magic magic this is much needed magic. If we are to get into the castle and rescue Morgarna we need to appear wealthy and well connected. Which horse would you like Gail or should I say the lady Abigail “
Gail looked at the two horses and said “Oh! My full name get you! …can I have the black one please he looks so fine and those eyes they are so deep. “
Merlin raised an eyebrow and the saddle on the black stallion became a fur clad sidesaddle fit for a lady. Gail let Meriln help her up onto the horse, ” can you ride Gail” he asked?
“No” Gail replied, Merlin put his head to one side smiled, ” you can now and well, he’s called Bayard he responds well to all commands. “
Gail shook her head as she turned Bayard round as Merlin mounted Drifter.
“Merlin this is amazing I feel one with Bayard he is a wonderful animal, hey Bay, can I call you Bay, let’s fly!”
Merlin laughed, and nudged Drifter “come now to the castle. “


Early afternoon a farmer was on his mobile talking to his wife. “Honestly I was only out of the cab for five minutes when I heard it being driven off, I chased it but it was really flying. Yes hun report it to the police but I doubt they’ll do anything about it…. yes! We might get a crime number, true , true.

Put the kettle on I need a break!” he half laughed as he hung up and headed off back towards the farmhouse.


The Entity ( let’s call him Bill) had just arrived in town he dumped the tractor in the middle of the high street and made straight for the cemetery.
He was looking for Merlin and it wasn’t to wish him a good day.
Bill decided to take the body of a young man who was taking a short cut through the cemetery. Oh! He thought to himself this body is much better fed than the last one.
Reaching down ‘Bill stuck his hand into the earth and pulled an young but very dead infantry man from his grave by the war memorial. He breathed into the skeleton and immediately it morphed into a
ghostly version of who he had been.
“Merlin, where is he ? I need to know, is he in the crypt….is he hiding from me?” He ended on a roar!
The young ghost looked him straight in the eye and said “No sir he’s gone back in time to search you out!”
Bill threw the soldier down with such a force that he was immediately burried again.


As evening fell Merlin and Gail arrived at the castle they approached slowly and sedately. “Remember Merlin whispered you are Lady Abigail and I am your Uncle Morten and we are on our way to meet your betrothed the Earl of Gloucester. Let me do most of the talking ” As they approached the drawbridge Merlin called out in answer to the customary “Who goes there?” from the watch! Lord Morten of Friedrichburg and my neice the Lady Abigail we are en route to meet my neice’s betrothed in Gloucester.”
“Halt” came the reply .


By now Annette’s Father was enjoying his meal, wine and looking forward to taking one or maybe two of his many serving wenches to his bed! Happy in the knowledge that for the piffling price of his daughter’s life he now had the the promise of eternal life from the strange wizard ( the entity known as Bill) who had visited him a fortnight ago.
One of his servants came to his side and whispered in his ear, “My Lord, there a two people at the gate”
“Who the Devil are they?” He asked.
“Lord Morten of Friedrichburg and his neice the Lady Abigail”
“What do they look like ?”
“Rich sir very Rich”
“Well don’t keep them waiting! bring them up, hurry and bring them up”

Up in the garret Morgarna had fallen into an uneasy sleep and was dreaming.
She was clean and warm and floating around in clear warm water. Ahead of her she saw a tiny crab next to a giant shell.
“Hello little chap what are you up to?”
“Chapess if you don’t mind, and I am house hunting,”
“Really” asked Morgarna with a smile the first one she’d managed since her capture.
“I love house hunting, did I tell you we’ve just bought a great new house? Now I am not sure you’re after this one here it’s way too big for you…what’s your name? You’ll be rattling around like a marble in there! I am Morgarna “
“Well Miss bossy boots Morgarna , my name is Chrustina I don’t care what you think I am upsizing!”
“Okay Miss Chrustina shall we investigate “
While Morgarna’s body lay cold and dirty in the windy garret her mind was relaxed and warm and she had a friend of sorts. ….
Down in the main hall of the castle Merlin and Gail made their grand entrance. Gail looked across to Merlin and asked telepathically “Can you feel her Merlin, I can and she’s in pain!”
“I can and I can see where she is too, up in the garret tower. John the real John is in the dungeon. ” Merlin smiled at Gail.. “now remember I am Lord Morten , your uncle and you are Lady Abigail. “
“Time to sort things out Merlin?” Gail asked and Merlin nodded……

Merlin and Gail finally left the church as day was breaking, there were people about bustling off to work but no one in the church yard to see them leaving the church. They watched as all the other inhabitants of cemetery melded away like early morning mist. They got into the BMV, Merlin driving this time while Gail got out her laptop and put in all the information Lady Annette had given them. As the drove past the church door they waved to Annette before she disappeared into the shadows.


Morgarna stretched and shuddered as she realised she was still in the dungeon, her powers somehow blocked , she was filthy and cold. Crawling as far as she could across the floor she reached a wall and she pulled herself up. As she stood, every muscle in her body ached…. That was something she had never experienced before. Feeling along the wall she found there was something laying on the ground . Putting her arm down she felt a body! …This one was breathing!
Reaching down she felt a beard, “Hello” she said then she shook the body, then she shouted “HELLO! ” not known for her patience at the best of times she aimed a kick at the sleeping beauty!
“Oi, Oi, just what do you think you are doing” said the not very happy bundle of rags on the floor. “What do you think you are doing disturbing my beauty sleep”
“Urgh? Well I hate to tell you mate it’s not working?”

“Oh! Very funny what have we got here, a jester? Or a talking sow by the smell of it.”
Morgarna pulled leg back to kick again when the rag bag stood up and said “enough woman, who are you”
Morgarna stopped and looked the man in the eyes. “I am Morgarna LeFey and who are you” Looking at the man she could see he was young and actually under the dirt quite familiar and good-looking.
Morgarna leaned in and looked long and hard at the young man with his new beard and asked and who are you?
“John the Blacksmith’s son, Morgarna LeFey”


Merlin and Gail pulled up outside the house, “Are we alone ” Merlin asked waving the E.R. around we don’t need a repeat of last time do we.
Later in the kitchen the two of them discussed all that they had learnt from the ghosts and also what Lady Annette had told them.
“I have all the E.R. readings of John from when he was here and the many trace readings from the cemetery…and you know what Gail he’s an alien from one of Jupiter’s moons, the fifth one Io to be precise. ” Merlin said pouring himself a coffee.
“But” Gail interjected, ” there is no life on Io as you say it’s a moon.”
“Spot on Gail, not in your time or this but this guy is from the future and possibly another solar system… He’s probably visited our solar system and traveled through time causing mayhem. “
“What are we going to do , we’ve not heard a thing from Morgarna since she and that ‘John’ went to see what happened to Annette ” Gail looked worried.
Merlin drained his coffee and looked at his laptop ..” I checked it all out and we lost contact with her about the time Annette was murdered and John was arrested! Also from that moment on something has been blocking Morgarna’s powers. I’ve seen no magic she’s not even conjured up a cigarette for three days…I am slightly concerned”
Gail’s eyes widened ” OMG is she safe…what are we going to do we can’t just wait for her to come back, it sounds like she can’t get in touch with us. “
“Your right Gail , she’s obviously in trouble and she won’t be thinking that straight without her cigarettes” Merlin picked up the keys to the lab .” Come on Gail we are going to go and get her back!”


Morgarna looked at John and said, “You are John the Blacksmith’s son and you were in love with Lady Annette “
“Yes I am and I saw her murdered by the man that looked like me. Then I woke up in here. No one will listen to me, they will kill me soon.. … How do you know who I am and what I saw. “
Morgarna smiled “Well I am from a different time ” waving her hand to silence John who had already lost the thread of what was happening. “Look” she continued “I am here to help you but right now I am invisibly bound and gagged and all my powers have deserted me ” she moved away from John who had started to urinate in the corner ….She had left all that behind her years ago but knew she’d have to get used to bodily functions again.
Touching her head where she had the beginning of a headache she whispered “Merlin help me!! “


“Can I borrow any of these” Gail shouted from Morgarna’s dressing room .
“Yes” replied Merlin , “we are going back six hundred years so go for comfort, layers for warmth, plain coulours and sensible boots “
“Okay” shouted Gail secretly delighted .
“Meet me outside ” Merlin shouted and bring a bag with laptop , COTAS and the E.R. as quick as you can !”.


Merlin was outside waiting, dressed as a druid but with a black hooded cloak and solid walking boots.
“Hey man all suited and booted…will I do?” Gail asked.
Merlin turned to look at her she looked so small, in her dark blue dress under a grey fur hooded cloak and on her feet….Doc Martin boots.
She had a wreath of flowers in her hair and she was carrying a big bag.
“Put the bag under your cloak…that’s it you look the part” Merlin added to himself…you look so young.
Merlin pressed the button on a small handset and the Anomaly arrived.
“Ready” said Merlin….”Ready” echoed Gail.


They landed by a river, further along they could see shadows of trees which the fog was starting to blur. “Oh! My it’s so cold here Merlin where are we”
“We’re in the North of England” Merlin replied getting out his special compass , two miles from the village and it looks like Morgarna is not far either. Let’s head towards the village and see what we can find out. Now don’t say too much and follow my lead”
The two set off into the fog.


In the Dungeon, John was listening opened mouthed as Morgarna explain how she came to be in this filthy hole with him.

Second photo, Priory. For visually challenged writers, the image shows a beautiful old yellow stone priory with ivy growing up the sides.

Last week I was not feeling too good, Covid and Ruby issues took presidence. So this wee we have a two for one!

Bucket and Priory.

Morgarna’s eyes widened as she looked into the beautiful eyes, set in a handsome face, framed by dark curly hair tied back in a long pony tail and a perfectly groomed beard. Swallowing hard, her heart skipped a beat. “Leonardo, what are you doing here”
Stepping forward and taking her hand he answered in his lyrical Italian accent. “Morgarna, my dear I am so glad to see you! We need your help “
“We?” Morgarna raised an eyebrow”
“Yes bellissima, Mona and some students are with me, come, come on in and see “
Morgarna allowed herself to be led into the room.


The room was busy, there were blue screens everywhere with people tapping away on their keyboards. Morgarna was taking it all in when a familiar face came towards her carrying a tray ladened with wine grapes and cheese.
“Mona, it’s great to see you, you look amazing the 21st century suits you! “
“Honestly Morgana you say that in whichever century we meet! Here sit and have something to eat and drink” gently setting the tray down on a empty work surface the young woman dressed in jeans and hoody looked trim and fit, her eyes sparkling like her huge smile.


“So you see said Leonardo, we have got ourselves here with my time machine but we just can’t get back. We’ve been stuck here a few months now and I had been at wits end trying to contact you and Merlin for help! So as soon as I found your anomaly I decided to interfere with it to get your attention”
“And hey presto, after a few wet landings and rogue jumps here you are Morgs” interrupted Mona, “sorry Leo but as ever you are going all round the villa just to say we are lost”
Leonardo opened his mouth to speak but Mona waved her hand at him and winked….he closed his perfect mouth.
“Did we not give you one of Merlin’s *C.O.T.A S. mobile number ? I am sure we did ” Morgarna asked looking bemused.
Pouring more wine Mona added ” You did Morgs and you gave us a handset too, about four centuries ago but clever clogs here decided mobiles were the work of ‘the diavolo’ and he destroyed it one night after we’d had a row and he got drunk! Typical eh? “
Morgarna smiled she completely understood.
“Well we’re in contact now so we can sort all this out.


“Yes babes it’s Leo and Mona and a bunch of his students. Yup they are stuck here, their time machine is kaput! Yup we need you over her pronto and can you bring a C.O.T.A.S. Mobile please…… I will explain later. What’s that noise….where are you…what? say again, Oh! you big baby , yes send a photo then get your arse here! ” Morgarna hung up and lit a cigarette, “he on his way and no comment on my smoking will change me so save your breath”
Ping a photo arrived on her C.O.T.A.S “Hey everyone she laughed look at this she said casting Merlin’s photo to all the screens in the room.

Bucket – Image by KL Caley.

An hour later Merlin arrived with alsorts of tools and magic ware! Mona, Morgana and the students had been busy preparing a meal and after Leonardo and Merlin had had a catch up they all sat down to a banquet! ” I’d of got a take in but the Ladies insisted on cooking” Leonardo announced, Merlin smiled “There’s no point in arguing with them mate they usually get their own way.Take it from one who knows.”
The next several hours were spent tinkering with machine, with technology and magic in even shares. Eventually after several attempts and a couple of short jumps via the anomaly back to when the time machine started playing up….at one point there were four Merlins and four Leonardos all arguing about what to do next… finally, and luckily before any blood was spilt the machine was restored to perfect working order.


The next day after the room had been cleared and striped of everything electronic and magic and the last 16th century students had had their memories of the 21st century erased and been sent back through the Anomaly and found themselves back at their eazels wondering where their master was. Merlin and Morgarna sat outside the well house in the afternoon sun with Leonardo and Mona. Merlin explained how the C.O.T.A.S. worked and this time Leonardo was very happy to learn, though useful as he could see it was he still felt vaguely it was partly the work of the Diavelo … But he agreed not to destroy it again. Merlin put in his and Morgarna’s numbers for emergencies and social calls.
Eventually after they had packed all of Equipment into Merlin’s Beema and said their goodbyes Leonardo and Mona set off home in their machine, Leonardo had the
Vitruvian Man to finish before people started asking awkward questions. After a slight werring and a flash they were gone.


“Well babes” Merlin said, “how do you fancy a night a posh hotel I know one not far from here. “
Morgarna looked at him suspiciously “Can I trust you ” she asked looking him in the eye….
“Trust me babes? Have I ever let you down “
Morgarna lit a cigarette and muttered …”yes legions of times” as she got in the car letting Merlin drive…she did fancy a little luxury.


They were expected when they arrived at The Priory, Merlin had rung ahead and booked a suite.

Priory – Image by KL Caley

Morgarna was delighted with the view as they drove up the drive to be greeted by a beautiful old yellow stone priory with ivy growing up the sides. Absolutely charming she thought.
After a long soak and change of clothes they both enjoyed a sumptuous meal and plenty of wine, then they sat in the rose garden and smoked the last two of Sir Percival’s cigars.
Morgarna actually fell asleep and Merlin carried her upstairs and to the room. Which is why she didn’t see the anomaly above the bed or know that Merlin posted her through it!
She landed comfortablely on a small bed there was nothing of luxury in the room , no Egyptian cotton sheets, mini bar, no TV. no ensuite, phone or room service.

————————–
Meanwhile on the other side of the anomaly Merlin knew he would not be Mr Popular but that did not stop him helping himself to a brandy and turning on a movie. …….

This week Morgarna are worried and unsettled while Morgause is left under the care of the Lady of the Lake……

After breakfast Morgarna cleared away the dishes and tidied up after Merlin, with a waive of her hand. “No magic” she muttered “after the week we’ve had what does he expect?”
She just couldn’t settle as she thought about Morgause sleeping the sleep of the not quite dead under the care of Vivianne the Lady of the Lake. Lighting a cigarette Morgarna said out loud “I don’t trust her, I really don’t trust her”
“What you mean babes, is, you don’t like her, are you jealous?” Merlin’s voice sounded in her head”
“Jealous, what of? No I am not! Just get out of my head”


Later she joined Merlin in the office just off of the Lab, he was busy with his laptop and crystal ball. “How are you fixed babes ” he asked looking up .
“Why” asked Morgarna “Have we got a new job come in?”
“Yup if your up for it” Merlin said spinning round on his chair to look her in the eye.
Stubbing her cigarette out on his desk ( making him wince) she blew a lung full of smoke in his direction and replied. “I don’t see why not. I can’t do anything for little Sis she in the best of hands apparently” as she said the last part she made imaginary speech marks in the air with her fore and index fingers of both hands .
Merlin smiled,”your rather angsty for someone who doesn’t care about me”


Later after she’d changed and sorted her bag Morgarna headed off with no destination in mind, she knew the Anomaly would find her.
As it was she did not get far, as she turned into a wooded alleyway with bushes and lush greenery she saw an old lamppost and above it the Anomaly, as ever she jumped.

Lamppost – Image by KL Caley

As she landed she notice she was in the same place but checking her phone she saw she was one hundred and fifty years in the past. It was dark and the lamplight was on, she could hear the hiss of the gas.
Looking in her notes she turned on her heels and headed back towards where the lab would stand in the future. There was a chill in the air and Morgarna had the distinct feeling she was not alone on the path .

K.L.Caley’s #WRITEPHOTO – Descend

Today is Thursday and it’s time for K.L.s #writephoto. Last week we left Morgarna and Morgause in danger….and somehow I don’t think that they are out of it yet!

Morgarna’s breath caught in her throat, she felt a cold hand on her shoulder. To her horror Morgause was surrounded by six shadows all of them with their hands deep inside her body.
“Explain who you are or this being dies” The voice was coming from inside her head rather than through her ears. Telepathic she thought to herself. “Yes” replied the voice, “and only the truth will do.”
Searching the faces of the shadows Morgarna made contact with the owner of the thoughts.
“I am Morgan Le Fay , and you hold my kinswoman Morgause we are sourceresses , immortals and we travel time”
The shadow looked shocked and signaled to its kind to release Morgause, which they did. Morgause let out a scream and fell to the floor.
“You have magic powers?” The leader spoke. “Indeed I do” replied Morgarna, “and so does my sister there but I hold more powers than she “
Morgarna crossed the floor and retrieved the crown from the prone Morgause and put it back on the window ledge.
The buzzing began again and all the humans went back into their dreamy happy trance.
The shadows looked at Morgarna they were unsure as to how strong her powers were. Then all at once they rushed towards her screaming! Taking a half step back Morgarna held her hand up and said a stopping spell…..her other hand, hid behind her back had all her fingers firmly crossed.
The shadows were held mid air silent, eyes staring and mouths wide open. Sensing there were more shadows approaching Morgarna, pulled a bottle of water out of her bag and poured it unceremonially over Morgause’s face.
“What ? Argh! What are you doing …” Morgause complained bitterly but Morgarna had no time for this, she grabbed her sister and dragged her towards the doors and stairs towards the nearest exit. Not an easy job now that deleriously happy humans were all just milling around.


Outside in the gardens Morgause started to shiver “Hang on Morgs I don’t feel too good. ” She moaned and to be fair Morgarna could see that she looked even paler and colder that normal. ” Those shadows, they had their hands inside me and now I am cold and so weak , I don’t think I can move far.”

Looking around Morgarna felt her cool slipping into panic … something she was definitely not used to! Then she spotted some stone steps spiralling down into a dark opening. “Oh! Come on she said let’s get down there perhaps we can rest up for a bit and maybe get hold of Merls.

Slowly and carefully Morgarna helped Morgause down the steps and into a rather chilly , damp passage . The two of them followed the passage to what looked like a room of sorts , digging in her bag again she found her cloak and wrapped Morgause up in it. Then as Morgause drifted off Morgarna lit a cigarette and got her mobile out. She pressed the red button on the side and crossed her fingers that Merlin would answer her distress call soon. As she took a second drag on her cigarette she heard the woosh of shadows in the passage! ……

Island – Image by KL Caley.

“Well where have you been Morgarna” asked Morgause wide eyed and grinning.
“Ah! I couldn’t possibly confirm or deny” replied Morgarna with a wink , “All I will say is Westminster and Partay! On Jonno”
“Seriously Morgarna where have you been” shouted Merlin from the kitchen.
Seriously Merls I just told you I can neither confirm or deny!”
Merlin was just about to probe more when his laptop beeped.
“Right Morgs you up for this one?” he said.
“Why me?” Morgarna hissed. “I’ve only just got back”
“Precisely” replied Morgause, “we have been covering for you since before Christmas”
“But I’ve been busy sorting …”
Merlin held up his hand, “Apparently ” he said handing her a print out, “you can neither confirm or deny what you’ve been doing!”
Two hours later Morgarna was sitting on the bank of a beautiful and peaceful lake with a small island with a tree in the middle. Well, she thought to herself there are worse places to wait for the Anomaly.
As she waited for her ride she mused on the view. Lighting a cigarette Morgarna wrote what was in her mind.Just then ever bird on the island took off , the Anomaly arrived. Morgarna sighed and stubbed out her cigarette, as she took her leap and was gone ……the piece of paper she had written on fell to earth.

Deer at the Castle – Image by KL Caley

“Woa! What on earth are these doing here” Morgarna asked Morgause.They had landed just down from Camalot and were startled to find a string of fairy lights and two decorative deer the type found in 21st century shopping malls certainly not in the court of King Arthur.
“Don’t look at me like that Sis it’s nothing to do with me, I hold my hands up to the iPhone but not this!” Morgause said with a self-righteous pout!
Morgarna looked her sister in the eye and a blue light passed between them , “okay I believe you ” Morgarna said.
Just then the Anomaly appeared, “Quick Sis help me get these decorations through the anomaly Merlin can deal with them!”
The two of them heaved the decorative reindeer and string of lights into the anomaly.
Of a sudden the things looked more like Arthurian England than seconds before.
Morgarna and Morgause made their way towards the castle…in the dark.


As they entered the great hall the two sisters felt a huge feeling of homecoming wash over them both. The bustle the warmth and the familiar faces, they both disguised themselves to be accepted yet invisible.

“You see if any of the servants saw the decorations and I check this drunken lot up here stuffing their faces! ” Morgause said picking up a goblet of wine and heading for the top table. “Will do” replied Morgarna as she took an empty wooden platter and headed towards the kitchen.
Hours later while the castle slept Morgarna and Morgause stood in the dell and looked up to their former home. The place they had lived their original life before they had become immortal and their travels and adventures had begun.
“I still miss these times even after all we have experienced this is home” Morgarna said to her sister. Who nodded in agreement… Then fell flat on her bottom!
“What happened there Morga, too much wine” giggled Morgarna.
” I tripped on this stone, hang on it’s not a stone it’s a Christmas decoration …. With a note attached “
“What does it say” Morgarna asked.
Morgause rolled her eyes , “it says Merlin was here”
“Well sis that solves the mystery of the battery operated flashing reindeer in Camelot”
Just then the Anomaly arrived, “Jump” shouted Morgarna “and bring the note and bauble with you!”
They girls both landed back at the lab amidst a host of Christmas finery and Merlin holding out two large drink to them !

“Hey Merlin, babes, what are these, thingy…err stamps doing in the lab. ” Morgarna called out, “Are they important or are they for the bin?”
“No they are not for the bin Morgarna, don’t touch them” a startled Merlin called back. ” I thought I’d start a collection of them especially the rare ones”
Morgarna laughed and winked at her sister and replied. ” But they are almost obsolete babes”
Merlin strode into the Lab from the kitchen, “what better time to have a rare collection when they are a rarity? “
“These are not worth much babes ” Morgause mimicked her sister.
“No those are not but they will be, plus I thought we could pick up the rare ones on our travels” replied Merlin “we could make a killing really” Merlin smiled and poured himself a coffee.
“By “We” he means me and you Morga if you hang around long enough”
Morgause thought about this and said , ” Merls might just be on to something here … Some of these stamps are worth a fortune, especially first editions, those with mistakes and some that they made a few of. When were the first stamps made. “
Merlin picked up his phone and asked it, “Google when where the first adhesive stamps made” Google replied “In May 1840 the world’s first adhesive postage stamps were distributed. With an elegant engraving of the young Queen Victoria (whose 21st birthday was celebrated that month), the Penny Black was an instant success.”
Merlin then asked who had the idea. Google replied *”Sir Rowland Hill, KCB, FRS” “Well ladies we have a plan, we could make a fortune out of this! Who’s doing the first jump?”
Morgarna and Morgause lifted their Bacardi’s and coke and as one said “You! Babes you”

As the sun rose Morgarna had a good idea, from what Mother Stone had told her, what was possibly happening. So as the first glorious rays of dawn spread across the open landscape, of the as now untouched by the worst ravages of man and what is laughingly called civilization.
Morgarna reached across and ran her hand across Mother Stone’s surface and whispered, “Please don’t worry my friend who ever this is, I will find them and retrieve the object, but don’t worry whatever it is it is useless with out power or Google…..Don’t worry Mother by the time you wake again all will be sorted and I will be gone. Until we next meet ” Morgarna ran her hand across the stone and felt the knowledge of millennia wash through her.


As the settlement came into view Morgarna removed all her modern jewelry and from her leather bag she put on her celtic pieces.
No one took much notice of her as she had decided to cast a spell over herself to make her blend in and look familiar to everyone.
Making a few enquiries she discovered that the healer in the village was a woman, her name was Morgause.


It took all Morgarna’s composure to hide her surprise! but hide it she did.
So it was after a day of trading herbs and trinkets that Morgarna found herself knocking on Morgause’s door.


The two women looked at eachother across the threshold. One as dark as night the other as pale as day.
Morgarna broke the silence…. “Well hello *sister”

“So what’s your game Sis” Morgarna snapped.
Morgause replied in Gaelic, but Morgarna was having none of that! “Cut the crap Hun it’s me not some sniveling peasant!” What have you brought here and why?”
“Me Sis, really” Morgause fained innocence. Morgarna lifted her hand and Morgause flew across the room and hit the wall.
“That’s not very sisterly Morgarna, you’ve still got a temper I see” said Morgause .
Morgarna raised her hand again and Morgause spat out, “it’s an iPhone 15.and it out of power now so there’s no harm!” Morgarna took a deep breath and and replied, ” but there is and you know it” Morgarna snapped. “So where is it now, you do realise it’s contaminating the time lines and Mother Stone is not sleeping soundly? “


Later, after retrieving the iPhone from an old Oak in the woods behind the hut. Morgarna and Morgause stood in a glade waiting for the Anomaly to arrive.
As it did Morgarna embraced her sister bade her fairwell and took the leap. Morgause laughed and took one too.

Merlin was in the soap and shampoo aisle minding his own business! Morgana had left him a list and suggested he made a start on the Christmas shopping. Suddenly with a woosh and a scream Morgarna and Morgause landed in the trolley with a bang! “Merl babe, how are you hanging” screeched Morgause.

Well they visited the drinks and snacks aisle next, and this is how they left it.

*Morgause was the eldest daughter of Vivienne – who was also the mother of Morgana, thus making Morgause and Morgana maternal half-sisters. She was a skilled warrior, a powerful sorceress and a High Priestess of the Old Religion.

“This is the spot” Morgana said to herself, and rather pleasant rather pleasant it is too. The blue flowers, the old fence and trees hiding the five mile an hour road sign.
Looking at her phone she could see she only had a few minutes to wait. Running her hand down her green velvet robe with hand embroidered Gailic design on the bodice she smiled, she loved the thought of going way back in time to when magic and soucery reined supreme.
What could go wrong she smiled throwing her leather bag of herbs over shoulder, quickly checking the laces on her Doc Martin boots she looked out for the Anomaly.
Merlin was watching his screen, he could see Morgarna standing in the flowers waiting for the Anomaly.
“Are you okay Hun” , he asked , Morgarna, who turned and smiled at the screen, “are you seriously saying you care?” Merlin laughed “maybe baby” he replied.
Just then the Anomaly arrived.
Merlin watched Morgarna jump. Then he went to the kitchen to get himself a cup of coffee. …..

“Oh! Wow I love it here ” Morgarna and it is dusk. My favourite time of day” Delving into bag she pulled out her red velvet cloak and wrapped it around herself.


As it got darker Morgana sat by the stones and waited for them to talk to her. Feeling totally relaxed she watched the stars roll across the night sky. She was totally at one with the sky the earth and the stones.
It was around midnight when the stones began to speak.
“Morgarna we have missed you you are so rarely here.”
“I know mother stone, it pains me to be far from you but you know it is my destiny to travel” Morgarna looked at the stones and smiled. “Why have you summoned me here mother ” There was a silence as mother stone thought and then she spoke, “Someone from the future has travelled here and defied the the ancient laws by bringing things from another era here long before it’s time. They are trying to corrupt my innocent people Morgarna, can you and Merlin help?”
