They set out before sunrise, facing the dark, along the crevasses and icy steep slopes.


And now, panting and sweating with exhaustion as he prods his stick into the snow and takes that last step, Arthur sees the first rays of sunlight turning the mountaintops golden, and thinks it was worthwhile.


“Look.” He points at the tall mountains, unsullied by civilization. 


Beside him, Merlin laughs, breathtaking and exhilarating. He removes his goggles and mask, arms stretched, breathing and just being.


“Not gonna get a view like this elsewhere, are we?” 


They hug, then, sideways. And Arthur replies, “no, we won’t.”
