Pairing/s: Merlin/ Arthur
Character/s: Uther, Leon, Arthur, Merlin
Summary: Arthur gives lockets to potential brides.
Prompt: # 362: Locket
Every time Uther brought another high born lady to Camelot as a prospective bride for Arthur, Arthur commissioned a locket as a parting gift.
All of the candidates received a gift of equal value, whether they were from prosperous kingdoms or small weak ones. The lockets were large and bejeweled.
One time Leon asked Arthur why he did it, and Arthur shrugged and said flippantly, “Consolation prize.”
But the truth was, he did feel guilty.
He had no intention of marrying any of them.
