"Sometimes You Puzzle Me"

Merlin had some strange quirks. Many strange quirks, in fact.

There were all his obvious fibs about what he was up to - like that inane wood-worm story. Or those times he'd been sneaking off with court dresses. There were his mysterious disappearances, too. At the tavern, Gaius kept claiming, but Arthur had checked the place. Merlin wasn't ever there. Sometimes, for no reason, Merlin would stand with arms outstretched, as if conducting an orchestra. Other times, he'd survive attacks that would have killed armed guards.

Merlin remained a puzzle that sadly wasn't solved until Arthur's last week on earth.
