--------------
There were times when Arthur couldn’t take it. His father yelling about something Arthur hadn’t done or had no control over, yet it was still Arthur’s fault. Endless meetings, patrols, knights to train, peasants to assist. Expectations, demands, the never-ending knowledge that he must be perfect or Camelot would fail.

Voices in his ear, in his heart, in his head.

But on the roof-top, it was quiet. Peaceful.

When Merlin found Arthur there, he sat down next to him, not saying a word.

As if Merlin understood. Maybe he did.

And for a little while, that was enough for Arthur.
