She walked hurriedly down the halls of the castle, trying to get to Giaus as fast as she could. She knew that something was wrong, she just knew it, and Uther knew it too. She had to get to Giaus before the king. Taking a sharp turn, walking through the kitchen to take a short cut, she knew that this would complete her journey much faster.

Taking another turn into the right hallway, she walked quickly and knocked on Giaus' door, Merlin opening immediately. "Ros?"

"Where's Arthur? Something's wrong, very very wrong... I can feel it." She gently pushed pass Merlin and went straight back to the room where Anastasia was still asleep, Giaus by her side. "Where's Arthur? Giaus something's happened, I can feel it... I just know it..."

"He went looking for the flower to save Ana, what's happened Ros? Is everything alright?" Giaus stood and walked the few steps to where she was and placed a hand on her shoulder. "What is it?"

"Something's happened... to Arthur..." A sharp pain appeared in her head and she stumbled back, grabbing hold of the wall behind to steady herself. "You don't understand, something's happened to him," she said once the pain went away.

"How do you know?"

"I saw it... It was terrible Giaus, I stood there and watched him die, he was dying," she leaned on his shoulder as he gently enveloped her into his arms, holding her close. Giaus had always been like a father to her, and right now a father wasn't what she needed. She needed her brother to return.

"It was just a dream Ros, it's alright." It was only then that she realized it was the middle of the night. She picked her head up off his shoulder and looked out the window, only to see the night sky above, stars twinkling.

"I-I'm sorry... I didn't mean to wake you Giaus..." She backed away from his and wiped the tears from her eyes, sighing softly. "How's Anastasia?"

"She's getting worse and worse, it's hard to tell if the antidote will even work at this stage..."

"Is Merlin in there with her?"

"No, he went with Arthur."

"That idiot... I swear if he dies then I will not go to his funeral... The both of them," she whispered that last part. She knew that she was making less and less sense, but she didn't care at this point. "I'm going in to see her. Might as well, I'm already awake." Giaus nodded. She opened the door and closed it behind her, taking a seat next to Ana's bed. She noticed that she was slightly shivering, so Ros pulled the blanket off of Merlin's bed and placed it over her, over the one she already had on.

"I hope that they both return safely, for your sake and theirs..." She whispered. "Please don't die... It would kill me, and not to mention Arthur would never forgive himself for it..."
