Prompt: 331 Random First Line 1 ("He kept absolutely still as the footsteps got louder.")
Author's Notes: n/a

He kept absolutely still as the footsteps got louder. They were rapidly approaching his hiding place, which meant that he had to make a choice: if he jumped out now, he would still have the element of surprise, but there was always a chance he wouldn’t be noticed right away, which would give him the advantage. Timing was crucial.

He waited another second; two. Then he signalled to the others and leapt forward.


“Jesus Christ, Merlin,” Arthur said, clutching his chest dramatically. “You nearly gave me a heart attack.”

Merlin smiled. “Happy Birthday,” he said, giving Arthur a kiss.
