By the time they’d rescued Merlin from the ice-filled lake, he’d stopped shivering. His clothes, frozen and stiff, were hellish to remove, and the knights finally had to use knives to saw them off. But with the winter storm swirling snow and sleet, the winds howling, they couldn’t get a fire going. Frozen to the core, his lips turning blue, there was little else they could do but…

Remove their cloaks under a sheltering pine, strip off their own clothes and go skin-to-skin with Merlin huddled under a wealth of wool and bodies. A great mass of heat and flesh, each one in their turn trying to warm him up.

When he started to smile, humming contentedly, his lips turning a sweet pink, his cheeks flushed with something more than warmth, they knew they’d done what they could. If skin was rubbed just so, and there were moans and sticky bits and pleasure, well who was to know.

It was to save his life after all.  

And each one of them hoped that next time, they wouldn’t need an excuse.
