Author's Notes: :)
Arthur locked his door and began his walk to work. Normally he’d drive, but the weather looked fine and Merlin had a point—he did live close enough to walk.
As he walked, he thought about Gwen. Things were getting serious with her and he knew he wanted to make her a permanent part of his life. The only question was how to go about it. Maybe Merlin had a few ideas. He relied on his PA far too much, but then again, that’s what he was for, wasn’t it?
His thoughts turned next to his father. He was getting closer to retirement age, but was still healthy. Would he want to work longer? His father loved the company he’d founded, almost as much as he loved his children. They should have a chat soon about the future of the company.
Thinking of his father made him think about his sister. Her birthday was coming up soon and he needed to get her a suitable present. Merlin or Gwen could help him with that. He wasn’t a particularly good chooser of presents, and cringed when he remembered what he’d gotten her last year.
He looked up and noticed he was just across the street from Camelot, Inc. His walk had appeared to take no time at all and had afforded him time to think things through. As he headed across the street, he resolved to walk to work more. It saved him money and was better for the environment anyway. Smiling, he entered the building, prepared to make it a good day of work.
