“There’s a leaf in your hair.” For Merlin/Arthur please please?
I’m sorry, I really tried to think of my own idea, but all I could think about was LeafHead!Merlin by Eviko. Like, how could I possibly look at this prompt and write anything else? I hope @eviko doesn’t mind that I used her AU? I just ADORE LeafHead!Merlin and all her headcanons. Petal Panic is still HILARIOUS to me because of Arthur’s anxiety faces (like same babe, same.)
A little domestic Merthur for you, anon!
“You have a leaf in your hair.” Arthur said. “Again.”
Merlin was face first in a large biology textbook, studying for his upcoming Pharmacognosy exam. “I was working in the nursey at the botanical gardens today.” He didn’t bother to get the leaf out of his hair.
“That explains why there’s another baby plant in our flat.” Arthur said, looking at the small plant sitting on the kitchen counter.
“I couldn’t help myself.” Merlin looked up from highlighting his book with big blue, pleading eyes. “It needed a home, Arthur. It was lonely.”
Arthur sighed. “What does that make that? Ten?” Arthur scanned the little flat where Merlin insisted on cramming as many house plants as he could. “A good even number.”
“Until the next one.” Merlin hummed, going back to his textbook.
