Author's Notes: Disclaimers & unbeta'd. Also, I apologise for the end. Nothing bad happens, it's just poorly written and I don't know how to write flirtation, but that's normal so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Arthur hated shopping with Morgana. She was unbearable. Ooh try this on Arthur, hmmm how about this? It wasn’t that Arthur didn’t care about how he looked, it was that he never had the patience to deal with Morgana.

So it was entirely Morgana’s fault that he was now waiting half-dressed in the changing rooms while she went to find his actual clothes. Somehow she had managed to pick up all of the trousers in the dressing room, including his own, when she went to return them. It was also Morgana’s fault that he didn’t realise that the curtain was left not closed, at all. Which meant he was basically sitting with his legs open, on show for whoever walked into the fitting rooms.

He only noticed this when he heard the shuffling of feet followed by a forced cough. Looking up from his phone, he saw the cute shop assistant carrying a familiar pair of jeans. And then he realised he could see him, which meant the cute shop assistant could see him back - tight black boxer-briefs and all.

“Um,” the shop assistant coughed again, “Morgana gave me your jeans. So, here they are.” He held his hand out, not moving his feet. Arthur gauged the distance between them and deemed it too long to try to stretch out his arm to reach the trousers, and forced himself to stand up. He followed the assistant’s eyes, watching how they dropped instantly to his crotch. Arthur attempted to maintain his dignity by crossing his hands in front.

“Merlin,” Arthur said when he was finally able to read the name on the tag. “Thanks for my jeans.” He stepped back and turned around slightly to put them back on, and again had the feeling of being watched. When he turned back to face Merlin, his eyes snapped up to Arthur’s face, confirming his suspicions.

“Uh, it’s not problem. At all. Really.” Arthur nodded and walked past him. He was just about to leave when he heard Merlin turn. “I think your pants look hot.”

Arthur stopped in his tracks. He looked back at Merlin who was smiling shyly, glancing down at the floor, unsure. His ocean blue eyes crinkling into his smile. Arthur grinned and walked back over to Merlin. He didn’t quite know what possessed him to grab Merlin’s face and pull him into a kiss, but when they pulled back Arthur couldn’t resist cupping his cheeks and leaning to his ear to whisper: “Soon, I want to see you without your pants.”

Lol, this made me giggle all the way through – trust Arthur to first give Merlin an eyeful and then try to be modest and turn away, and instead just give Merlin an eyeful of that arse :D Love it!

It wasn't Arthur's aim to show Merlin his perfectly round bum, but Merlin was not going to complain ;) Thanks for reading it!!

Awwwwww they're so silly, of course Merlin would think his pants look hot and Arthur trying to be modest xD So perf!

Arthur really was trying to be modest but he had Merlin in front of him and then there's only so much modesty one wants to show ;)

Hehehe I bet Morgana knew exactly what she was doing when she stole Arthur's jeans ;)

This is such a cute fic!

I'm sure it wasn't entirely Morgana's plan. Pretty sure Merlin was a bit sneaky and may have offered to take Arthur's trousers back (with other intentions too obviously)

LOL. Oh, Merlin, you are quite something. Very cute!

Merlin wasn't entirely innocent in all this. He was blatantly checking Arthur out (although who wouldn't)?

Well, that was fun for both now, wasn't it? ;)

Oh Morgana. That girl causes more trouble for those boys... And yet it so often ends up well. Lucky Arthur after all.

This was really cute jelly. 😁

That was all kinds of fun. Morgana taking off with ALL the trousers made me laugh.
