Merlin has agreed to share some details of his life with me.
I can’t give you the exact details of locations because he doesn’t want Security to track him. There are a few other details we worked out but mostly, what you’re reading is his story as he tells it.
He agreed to my condition I would not show him the stories before publication. There’s no editing to make him look better. (Other than his own as he’s telling the story. He swears he’s only telling me the truth. But I advise you to take all these stories with the proverbial grain of salt.)
I’m only passing along the things he’s told me. You’ll have to sort out fact from fiction yourself.
Editor Notes: not for publication.
This is a big man. He’s about 6.5 feet tall (2.2m). Broad shoulders and slim waist. Muscled and obviously strong. The closest I could come would be to imagine a well-built basketball player. His hair appears to be gray or pure white depending on the lighting and at the moment, he’s sporting a well-trimmed beard.
Handsome in a rugged way – never going to be a model but if you like the outdoor types, he’s your man. Expensive blue, shirt. Well worn blue jeans and old/worn tweed jacket. Sensible walking boots but not heavy duty hiking types. Has his sunglasses tucked into a pocket but isn’t wearing any kind of prescription glasses I can see. Contact lenses??
Sexy as hell. There’s something about him – confidence? Energy? Work at identifying this! How to describe this? Charisma? Sex appeal? Wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating cookies.
When he’s relaxed, you feel he could be your best friend. But when he’s annoyed, you know you want to be somewhere else. It’s like he’s living on the edge and some days the edge is wide and some – it’s razor thin.
It’s all in the energy he throws (Try to explain this better to readers) Aura? Energy field?
But the man can tell a story…
