Merlin was an idiot.
Unbeknownst to Merlin, Arthur knew of his magic. Merlin couldn’t keep a secret to save his life, but at least Arthur was around to clean up his disasters — bribe, threaten, or banish those who would tell Uther.
This time, Arthur made the ridiculous mistake of not knocking on his own door, and finding a bunch of dancing cookies on Arthur’s not-yet-cleaned desk.
Luckily for Merlin, Arthur’s armor jingled a little. Before you could say Bob’s-your-uncle, there were cookies in Merlin’s mouth and a bunch of crumbs left behind.
At least he could’ve saved Arthur one cookie.
