Arthur woke with a jolt as a tall, good looking man with long hair ripped up the door to the bed room, turned on the lights and shouted:
Merlin peeked up from behind Arthur's back.
-Morning' Gwaine. This is Arthur! Isn't he adorable? He followed me home. Can I keep him?
Merlin smiled drowsily and wrapped his arms around a slightly stunned Arthur and pulled him close. Memories from the night they had shared came rushing back, and he tried to keep a clear head as Merlin let out a content sigh against his neck.
-Easy now, Merlin. He probably has people somewhere who miss him and wonder where he is.
-Awww! complained Merlin.
-But I'll feed him and love him and he can sleep in my room. You'll hardly know he is here.
Gwaine struggled to keep a straight face.
-You guys do realize I can hear you, right?
-No, 'cause I'm stupid. Oh, shoot. Gwaine, just so you know: I'm stupid now.
-Oh really? Since when?
Merlin covers Arthur's ears with his hands.
-Oh, now I recognize him! Well, he is fairly OK to look at, if you like that sort of thing. How you plan to achieve all this, then?
Gwaine gave his jaw a scratch.
Gwaine struck out his arms and pointed back to himself, in case there should be any doubt who he was talking about.
Merlin shook his head.
-Nope. Sorry. Shallow and stupid. He didn't even notice me until I asked the dumbest question about iPhones I could think of.
Gwaine hid his face and winced. -No! I can't bear it! You... slut!
Gwaine raised his arms in defeat.
Merlin snorted a laugh as the word Disgusted was shouted before the front door slammed shut.
Arthur turned towards Merlin.
Merlin looked at him with such fondness that is was almost unbearable.
Arthur wrapped his hands around Merlin and pulled him close. He rested his head against the man's back, listening to his heartbeat and wondering how it was possible to find something you didn't know was missing and you didn't know you needed.
