Rating: PG
Pairing/s: Arthur/Merlin
Summary: Merlin is an environmental blogger and socially awkward nerd who dated Arthur at Uni. Arthur is a private security officer at Pendragon Securities and thinks that he’s being pranked by his older sister when he finds out his next client is his ex-boyfriend. But Merlin’s lack of political savvy has made him public enemy #1 with some politicians and major corporations, and now his friends and family are worried about his safety so they ask the one person they know can protect him for help.

Author's Notes: my wonderful prompt was: Arthur/Merlin. Merlin needs a bodyguard for some reason. Enter Arthur who runs a security business and happens to be Merlin's ex. Angst, slight animosity, happy ending, please. I couldn't fit in some of the more sexy requests without letting this grow into a way, way bigger fic, but I hope you like this all the same. I know I loved writing it!

Author's Notes: wanderlust48: I’ve tried to stick to your prompt as much as I can. I realize your prompt called for a Arthur POV, but since I was unable to write a good fic with Arthur’s POV, I took Merlin’s. I also didn’t know anything about contemporary dance before receiving this prompt. I had a lot of fun writing this, though! Thank you for the prompt and I’d like to thank the mods for organizing such a wonderful fest. wanderlust48 I really hope you like it!
Thanks to my wonderful beta digthewriter who is absolutely awesome and patient and without whom this fic wouldn’t be half as good.
