Author's Notes: Set in episode 4.10 A Herald of a New Age.
Gwaine saw it clearly in the light of day.
A hickey. A love bite. A distinct bruise on Leon's neck that could only have one source.
Gwaine had thought the gambeson reached higher than that.
He needed a distraction. He enjoyed the sight of his mark on Leon's skin but he knew Leon wouldn't want the others to notice.
It was too soon to discuss what went on in Leon's bed.
Surprisingly, Arthur was the answer.
"What's that in your hair?" Gwaine asked as Arthur approached giving orders.
"It's stew," Merlin answered.
Gwaine smiled, relieved, as everyone took the bait.
