Author's notes: none, will fix the tags when I get home. 😆
I went to see Captain Marvel last night and got home too late to fix the tags. It was really good. But now I'm fixing them.
“So, Arthur, remember how I told you Merlin was so happy you've returned that you could probably murder someone and he'd forgive you?”
Arthur looked up from the book he was reading to see Leon leaning casually against the open door of the huge library the two men had in their home. It was larger than Arthur's old chambers had been and completely full. He smiled at his old friend, amused by the non sequitur. “Yes?”
Leo grinned back. “If you spill any of that tea on that book, I'd just start running for the hills. It would probably be best if you just jumped back in the lake.”
Arthur frowned at the book, then back up at Leon, head cocked in question. It was a beautiful book, and obviously old, but Arthur couldn't see why a book of plays was so special.
Leon took pity on him. “That's one of the only remaining original copies of Shakespeare's First Folio. You can't get a replacement. And given the fact that Will was a close friend of both of us, I can honestly say that Merlin might not be the one to fear if you damage it.”. Leon smiled toothily before he stood up straight and turned. “Good night, Arthur.”
