Street Fighting Man

Author: tari_sue
Title: Street Fighting Man
Rating: pg
Pairing/s: Merlin/Arthur
Character/s: Merlin
Summary: He fights to remember, he fights to forget
Warnings: grief, loss, fighting
Word Count: 100
Prompt: Bruises
Author's Notes: oh dear, don't read this




He forgets when it started, when the bruises became part of his skin. Some long-forgotten tavern, far from Camelot, fighting without magic, letting his grief out through his fists. Each punch keeping the adrenaline pumping through his cold, neglected heart – a heart locked away for so long feels nothing. It feeds him now, feeds his soul, feeds his body.

Can you see the bruises on his torso? Marring his pretty eyes? What do you think of him now, Arthur? Can you see the bruises on his soul? What would you say if you knew it was all for you?
