What Daylight Conceals, Moonlight Reveals

Their fire has burned down, but soft moonlight filters through the trees and illuminates their campsite.

This late, Merlin has gone quiet.

Arthur enjoys the stillness, but more than that he appreciates the sight of Merlin, sitting across from him.

In daylight, Merlin seems awkward, with arms and legs flailing. His befuddled or funny expressions constantly change as he blurts the most ridiculous things. But at night, lost in thought, Merlin is grace, sharp angles and shimmering eyes. He looks poised and preternaturally handsome.

Not for the first time, Arthur wonders whether his manservant by moonlight isn't the real Merlin.
