“What did you just say?” Merlin asked, speeding up to catch Arthur who seemed to be in a hurry.

“Have you gone deaf?”

“Maybe, could you repeat that one more time for me please?”

“I said will you go hunting with me?” Arthur repeated, irritatedly, turning away from Merlin and hurrying ahead again.

“That’s what I thought,” Merlin said, almost to himself, now running to catch the prince. Catching Arthur’s expression, he felt obliged to enquire, “Are you feeling alright?”

“I’m fine, although I’m starting to have my doubts about you.”

Merlin scoffed lightly. “It’s just that, you have never really invited me before. You sort of just expect me to follow you usually.”

“Look, come if you want. I’m going either way,” Arthur replied more forcefully than Merlin thought was required. As Arthur walked away though, Merlin observed the tips of his ears had gone pink. It made him smile fondly.

“Of course I’m going too,” Merlin answered the original invitation finally, unable to erase his smile away. “Who else is going to scare all those poor animals away from you?”
