Prompt: 18 Gold
Warning: Not beta-ed, since I have a meeting in 10...all typos are up for adoption. *grins*
"This is one of the rare occassions where we meet two medal-winning athletes from different countries. Isn't this what the Olympics should be about, ladies and gentlemen? Young people from around the world, rivals in their sports, becoming friends?"
She smiled widely as Merlin shifted in his seat while Arthur turned on his media-approved million-dollar-smile as the camera was pushed into their faces.
The interviewer babbled on about their accheivements (gold and silver) and the competitive situations and asked how they got along being Canadian and American. Lots of stupid questions which Merlin stumbled through or left the answer to the more eloquent Californian.
"Would you show our viewers your medals?"
Dutifully they raised the medals to the camera and the interviewer couldn't hold back her enthusiasm, describing the medals and talking about their weight. When she reached for Arthur's silver medal, inspecting it closely, the blond's smile faltered.
"And there I thought," she went on, "that you blokes only pretend to bite the medals for the photos. But your teeth sure left some marks!" she explaimed.
She never noticed Arthur's strained smile or Merlin's furious blush as she wished them good luck for the next competitions.
