"Can you do me a favour?" Arthur asked, his hand slowly moving up and down Merlin's back.
"Hmm?" Merlin said, he sounded tired, and a hint of smile had crept up in his tone. Arthur could always tell when Merlin was smiling.
"Don't tell anyone about my resignation--" He was able to feel Merlin opening his mouth to say something so Arthur added, "Not even Gwaine. I know you tell him everything."
"I don't tell him everything," Merlin argued halfheartedly before he relaxed against Arthur.
Arthur knew when he woke up in the morning, Merlin'd be gone. He'd no idea what they were doing, or why were they even doing this. It was probably not a very good idea.
This certainly didn't mean they were going to get back together, especially because Arthur had a lot to figure out. Being in the moment with Merlin was good, and even if he'd not planned on his evening turning out like this, things changing like this and so fast wasn't necessarily...healthy.
They needed to talk. They needed to be friends first. Again.
Arthur needed to know why Merlin had left. Was he going to come back to him?
He needed answers.
