Notes: Don’t know where this came from. I hope it’s not too sad but hopeful enough.
Merlin stopped breathing when he realized where Arthur had stopped the car.
He followed him out but instead of setting up the picnic, he stood at the shore and stared at the little island in the middle of the lake like he’d done so many years ago.
Shivering, he wrapped his arms around himself and couldn’t tear his eyes away.
Wordlessly, Arthur stepped up behind him, wrapped his arms around his waist and pulled him to his chest. “Why here of all places, you ask?”
Merlin nodded and swallowed hard. He’d waited so long, they were only celebrating Arthur’s first year back.
“To make new memories, sweetheart.”
