If it hadn’t been for Merlin, well who knows, if he would have even existed.
Infertility seemed to have been the parents’ cross to bear but Merlin was known throughout the land for his magical powers, and Old Thomas thought it was worth a try for his wife to schedule a consultation.
When Merlin learned of their desire for a son, even if he was no bigger than a thumb, he knew this would be unlike any of his other magical endeavors.
The baby, aptly named as Tom, after his father, and surname, Thumb, well because of the obvious, had many adventures and became a favorite in the court of King Arthur.
The Queen became jealous of all the attention given to Tom, and one thing led to another until he died from the poisonous bite of an arachnid.
