“Merlin, that’s not how you hold a sword.” Arthur’s words were patient, but he sounded amused. “You’ll chop one of your ears off carrying it like that.”
“It’s worked pretty well so far,” Merlin protested. As usual, Arthur seemed determined to find fault where none existed. What did it matter how he held the sword when he wasn’t fighting?
“At least let me show you the proper grip.” Arthur sighed. “Again.”
Merlin acquiesced. There was no getting out of it, anyway, and Arthur’s hands were warm and strong wrapped around his. It wasn't exactly a hardship, being held so close.
