The littlest things set Arthur off. Adverts on the tv, the ringtone in Merlin’s phone, coffee brewing, the taste of an Indian curry. Never mind the constant rumble of trucks passing by or jets overhead.

Merlin could always tell when it became too much. Arthur would sit huddled in a corner, using a rough stone he’d picked up by the side of the road and then sharpening every knife in the drawer. Snick, snick, snick.

Trying not to upset him more, Merlin would always next to him, thigh to thigh, silent. And wait for Arthur to come back to him.
