bigdamndestiny: (prat & idiot)

It was still the summer in Camelot, and that meant it was more than just a little too hot to stay in the castle on some days. Mostly ones where there wasn't a breeze to make the stone rooms less stifling.

So, this seemed to mean Arthur needed to take a quick hunting trip with his manservant.

His very, very grateful manservant.

"Are we actually hunting or...?"

[[For that guy]]

Arthur would have invited Katchoo and Francine, he would-- but truth be told he'd been in a rotten mood for weeks, and now that the source of it was gone and Merlin was back, he planned to make up for lost time.

"If it was, I would've taken knights, not you," Arthur said, with a roll of his eyes. "You hunt about as well as Brynmor does, if that much."

"...Brynmor hunts just fine!"

Nooo she didn't.

"Brynmor," Arthur said, "will stare at the grass for at least half a candlemark before she realises there used to be a hare there. Now come on, keep a move on. We're almost there."

"She's just thoughtful," Merlin grumbled, following along with him. "And affectionate."

"And she can lavish all of that affection on her pups," Arthur grumbled right back at him, "Who might actually manage to grow up to be hunting dogs as she was supposed to be."

"Well, she's good for that, at least." And adorable. SO ADORABLE, ARTHUR.

Hunting dogs weren't supposed to be adorable! They were supposed to be vicious and swift.

"You would think so," Arthur said, striding up ahead to pull away a few branches. There was a lake here...

"Oh, please, like I want to sit still for that long in this weather," Arthur griped, reaching down to tug off his own tunic.

"Oh." Merlin, don't grin like an idiot. "Swimming then?"

"Give the man a biscuit!" Arthur replied, shucking off his breeches with absolutely no sense of self-consciousness whatsoever.

None at all!

Merlin coughed, pulling off his jacket and not at all staring. Really. "Well, it's a good day for it, at least."

"It is too bloody warm in that castle," Arthur said, stretching in a way that quite frankly invited staring.

He was doing it on purpose, yes. What. He showed off all the time.

From: [identity profile] bigdamndestiny.livejournal.com
"Um. Yes."

Arthur, that really wasn't fair at all.

Arthur half-turned and flashed him a grin. "Take your time." Bastard.

Merlin shook his head, struggling out of his shift with less grace. Much, much less grace. "You're doing this on purpose."

"Perish the thought."

And please ignore Arthur's eyes running down what skin eventually became available to look at.

Then he turned, and launched himself gracefully into the water.

From: [identity profile] bigdamndestiny.livejournal.com
Damn him and his grace!

Merlin hobbled on after him, trying to pull his trousers down as quickly as possibly without braining himself on a rock. "Hold on!

Arthur bobbed back up, head popping out above the surface of the water before the rest of him stood up. The water reached about to his waist. "Well, come on, you clumsy git!" he laughed.

"You're a bastard," Merlin grumbled, finally out of his clothing to join Arthur in the water with a happy sigh at the coolness.

"Oi," Arthur warned, "I was born in wedlock, thank you." He made his way towards Merlin. Carefully.

A bit like Jaws.

He would.

"But this is very nice," Merlin said, oblivious to any attacks in the works as he dipped down to wet his hair.

Date: 2010-09-18 06:18 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] bitch-prince.livejournal.com
Excellent.

That meant it wasn't as hard for Arthur to tackle him when he came back up.

Date: 2010-09-18 06:21 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] bigdamndestiny.livejournal.com
"OI!" And now Merlin had water up his nose. WATER. UP HIS NOSE. Arthur was an evil man, indeed.

Arthur laughed, eyes twinkling. "What, you don't like the water, Merlin?"

It'd been a while since he'd gotten to feel good in an uncomplicated way like this.
