Word Count: 100
Prompt: 372 Bingo Round 1 ("Falling in love")
Falling, floating, flying, freezing
Merlin wouldn't call it falling in love.
It was more like an immersion, slow and sure, a pleasant sensation of floating and being buoyed.
And it was like flying, his eyes wide open as he soared to the skies, all his senses revelling in the rush and excitement.
Despite all the hardships and dangers they encountered, when Merlin looked at Arthur, he never saw his own fall, but a jubilant rise to reach the sun.
But he flew too close to the brightness. He got too accustomed to the heat.
And then his heart froze when the sun went out.
