Then at the end of that 1 second turn, the Mage's spell goes off, the Fighter get to his target the orc, the clerics prayer is answered, and the orc is now in melee with the fighter, meeting him half way with his sword also drawn.
That is just because the mage has a ranged attack. An orc with a crossbow can shoot him on its first turn too.
