Arthur paced in his place. It was the first time he had a week off in two years. Which wasn’t really true, he’d had time off from work before, but for the first time, these days weren’t filled with tons of appointments or a trip to another city.

He’d had great plans for this down time; like sleeping in, reading a lot of books, finally unpacking the last moving boxes that were still in the basement from his move two years ago. Instead of doing all that, he had woken up at his usual time, eaten a lot of junk food and was bored.

Bored was probably not the right expression. For the first time he didn’t have things to do to distract him. They had broken up a year ago and even though it got easier to pretend that he was alright, he just wasn’t. He was still deeply hurt about things that had been said and accusations that had been thrown at him. None of them were true but his stupid pride had prevented him from arguing.

And so he had walked out of his life. The only man he’d ever loved was gone.

Trying to swallow against the lump in his throat, Arthur felt his chest tighten as he slumped onto the couch. He buried his face in his hands and had trouble breathing when for the first time since it happened, the tears started welling up.

Merlin was gone. And he wouldn’t come back.

Wow, poor Arthur. Too bad it took him too long to realize he missed him.

Oh, I think he knew all along, but he kept himself busy to not having to think about it.

Aww, no, come back Merlin! Save him from himself and from working too hard!

I'm not sure what happened, so there is nothing I can do about it. :(

Bunnylein! We have talked about this. Merlin and Arthur is a pair, without each other they are like odd socks ok? Completely without purpose, left in the sock drawer indefinitely.

Swallow your silly pride, Arthur. OMG tsk

:( Poor Arthur. Denial will only keep things at arms length for so long. Eventually it will all catch up with you.
