Silver or gold?
Merlin frowned at the mirror and examined the hair above his ear and on his temple.
“What’s wrong?” Arthur switched on the shower and pulled his t-shirt over his head.
“I’m…,” Merlin whispered disbelievingly, “I’m turning grey.” He sounded very stunned.
Arthur came over, wrapped his arms around Merlin’s waist and looked at him over his shoulder.
“I’m…getting old.” At the age of 29, Merlin refused to think of himself as old. Arthur was over 30, now that was old. But not 29!
Kissing Merlin’s shoulder softly, Arthur smiled and murmured. “Silver, Merlin, not grey. But to me, you are gold.”
