Summary: Arthur finds himself distracted when you deliver his food from the kitchens. Part 2
You wiped a hand across your forehead, longing for the cooler air outside the castle. The kitchen was always hot, but during the summer it was even worse. Your dress was clinging to your back with sweat, only adding to your discomfort.
As you kneaded the bread for tonight’s meal, you didn’t notice your older brother sneaking up behind you. There was a wicked grin on his face as he got to within inches of you, then clapped his hands on your shoulders. You jumped a mile, then spun around to glare at him.
“Really, Merlin?” you yelped. “Was that necessary?”
“Absolutely,” he sniggered. “That was an impressive noise you made.”
