Author's Notes: :)
“So what is it you have to ask me?” Arthur asked Merlin.
Merlin had invited him to the coffee shop to ask Arthur a rather important question. They’d gotten to be rather good friends over the last few months, and as Will would be out of town for the wedding, Arthur was the best person to ask. He’d run the idea past Morgana, and though she’d laughed pretty hard, she’d agreed that Arthur was the best choice.
“Um, are you sure I can’t get you anything first?”
“Merlin, I purposely took a long lunch break so I could be over here right now. Time is money, mate.”
“Right, so I wanted to know if you’llbemybestman?”
Arthur frowned. “Come again? I didn’t catch the second part there.”
Merlin sighed. “Sorry. I was wondering if you’d be my best man?”
Arthur’s brow rose. “Really? That’s what you wanted to ask me?”
“Yes? Look, if you don’t want to do it—”
“Merlin, you idiot. Of course I’ll do it. I’m honored, actually.”
“Really? I mean, great! And thanks so much. That’s about the only thing I get to do for the wedding and I didn’t want to screw it up.”
Arthur chuckled. “Right, I get it. And no problem. Just out of curiosity, what did Morgana think of this?”
“She laughed, but when she was done laughing, she agreed. I guess she really does values you.”
“That harpy! It’s a good thing she’s my sister.”
Merlin laughed. “Yeah, that’s why we love her, huh?”
“We do indeed.”
