Arthur burst out of his room. He looked at Morgana then back to Merlin. "Who the bloody hell are you?"
"It's me. Merlin." Merlin grinned.
"I need a lie down." Morgana slipped into her bedroom.
"And some clothes." Merlin smirked. "Although, I don't mind if you're naked."
"Where's the old man?" Arthur pushed past Merlin to look into the box room. "And how did you get in here?"
"I am the old man, Arthur." Merlin chuckled. "You should see your face."
"If you're the old man, how did you turn into you?" Arthur folded his arms across his chest.
"I used magick." Merlin scratched his head. "Frankly, I didn't think it would work. It's been a while since I used any magick."
"You're telling me you did some Hocus Pocus and poof, you're young again." Arthur leaned against the wall. "This is making my head hurt. Magick isn't real. It can't be."
"Arthur, magick is real and it always has been." Merlin patted him on the shoulder.
Gwen walked out of the bedroom and looked at Merlin. "I told you he would be trouble. I'm going to put the kettle on."
"Gwen, a little help here." Arthur called out after her.
"You brought him here. He's your problem." Gwen answered back.
"Why did you pretend to be an old man then turn into you?" Arthur asked.
"I was an old man. Merlin rubbed his arms. "I need to be young again to serve you."
"Merlin, I'm not a king. I can't afford servants on what I make. I have no idea what you think you are going to do." Arthur rubbed his temples and sighed. "You're mental. Gwen is going to kill me for bringing you here."
"She won't. She loves you." Merlin chuckled. "Now Morgana on the other hand…."
"No. Morgana will have your guts not mine." Arthur grinned.
"Maybe I should show her my wand." Merlin smirked.
"Bloody hell! You are mental." Arthur shook his head and walked away.
