After everyone (IE, Arthur) had gone to bed for the evening, Merlin had snuck out to give the phone another try.

They worked for everyone else, right? They had to work here. Even if that meant Merlin needed to give it a little extra oomph to get there. What the oomph would be... he honestly wasn't sure. But he was going to keep trying until something worked.

"On þæs ácíege dæg dæg fyrlen. A geond swelc stíþmægen geanbyrde," he said to the phone that just blinked to inform him that it's battery was nearly dead.

Yes, this could take all night.

Merlin was not sneaking into his room. That would imply he had something to hide.

Which he didn't

Really.

"Are you avoiding me?" Gaius asked, coming out of nowhere on him. Those eyebrows were accusing him of something already.

"What?" Merlin asked, laughing nervously. "Why would I do that?"

The eyebrows rose imperiously.

"Merlin."

"I--" Well, he needed to tell him sometime... "You were busy!"

That didn't help.

"Merlin, I am frequently busy, and yet I always manage to find time for you in my schedule," said Gaius, in that not-quite-accusing way that he has. "My boy, what on God's Earth has you so skittish?"

"I told Arthur," Merlin blurted out in one quick spurt. There. All said. "About me."

Gaius' eyes widened almost comically large. "You what?"

"He took it well!"

"Well obviously, since you're still alive," Gaius replied, pacing away from him.

Merlin bit his lip, shrugging helplessly. "I had to."

[[For those eyebrows and SP]
