“Merlin, why are we going to the tavern again?” Arthur asked as they made their way down the castle steps.

"Because Gwaine set up a drinking contest with some of the other knights and he invited us,” Merlin replied. This wasn’t the first time he’d explained this to Arthur, who had a hard time breaking away from his duties these days. He could use a night out, even if he didn’t participate. And he wouldn’t.

“Watching Gwaine drink doesn’t sound like much fun.”

Merlin sighed. “Maybe not to you, but you need a night out and we’re going.”

Ahead of him, Arthur stopped and turned around. “What was that?”

“Um, an order? But I promise it will be more fun than you think it will be. Think of everyone losing to Gwaine. That’ll be a riot.”

“There may very well be a riot, but fine. We’ll go. I have been working too hard lately.” Arthur turned and resumed his steps to the lower town.

Merlin grinned. He’d nearly been done with there for a minute, but he counted this as a victory. Arthur would likely have a good time and it would be nice to see him relaxed for once. It had been a long, hard battle for Camelot and everyone deserved to have a good time. Even if they all lost to Gwaine.

Dude, it would be so awesome if Gwaine lost to some random farmer or something like that who secretly brews or distilled his own liquor, and even better if the barmaid knew and bet against Gwaine and cleaned up. Lol.

Merlin does well to help Arthur manage his work-life balance. It's good that he was successful in getting Arthur to go out! :D
