When Merlin gave Arthur a wooden spoon, he just stared at it a moment. An intricate thing, carved with Celtic knots and words that Arthur could barely make out, he didn’t know what to do.
Merlin watched him with such eagerness it set off alarm bells. When that turned to disappointment, then silence, Arthur knew he’d done something wrong.
So he pretended to love it, kissing Merlin back into eagerness. Later, Merlin snoring next to him, Arthur googled it. Found that a love spoon given was a proposal.
“You couldn’t just ask?”
He’d tell Merlin yes again in the morning.
