I’m watching you
Merlin Memory Month Prompt Day 2:
Path II - Watching you
Whenever Morgana loses control about her magic she shatters the windows in her chambers. Merlin on the other hand tends to lose control whenever Arthur tries to come closer to him and he blows up the whole castle… every time.

The Millenium Wheel

Arthur stood by Merlin’s side in silence, staring out the glass cabin, as the white metal skeleton of the monstrous wheel lifted them over London.

“Your kingdom, sire,” Merlin said, looking over at him with all the devotion Arthur remembered from so long ago. His words were soft and reverent, and yet they held echoes of ancient power, as if by speaking them he were gifting his king the modern city that stretched to the distant horizon.

Arthur turned to face him, shoulders pushed back, meeting Merlin’s determined gaze with one of our own.  “Our kingdom,” he corrected.

Merlin smiled in response, soft and sad and full of adoration.  “I don’t want the kingdom,” he said.  “I only want its king.”

Arthur felt his breath catch, his throat going tight, overwhelmed again by all that Merlin was, and all that he’d done for him, both in their lives in Camelot as well as in that horrible separation that had followed.  

Lifetimes, Arthur thought.  Lifetimes he waited for me.  And alone.  Oh god, so alone-

Arthur stepped forward, cupping the sides of Merlin’s face in his hands, to gently kiss him, over and over, small soft things that told the miraculous man at his side again and again that of course Arthur was his, just as he was Arthur’s, just as it was always meant to be.

“So you think the time of magic will come again?”

“Yes,” Arthur said.  “I do.”

Merlin was silent a long time, but then nodded. “I think so too.”

Arthur tightened his grip around Merlin’s waist. “We’ll do it differently next time.”

“Yes, sire, we will,” Merlin said, the words sounding like an oath burned into the heart of the world itself.

Arthur stared at Merlin’s profile in wonder, almost able to feel the power of the words reaching deep into the earth, before stretching out into the unknown future ahead.
