Author's Notes: This is not the angsty one. The angsty one may or may not be coming later.
"I was thinking, sire, you might give me today off."
It's not the response to where is my breakfast? Arthur's looking for. "Why?"
"Well, it's one year to the day I saved your life," proudly.
Arthur is uncomprehending. "Oh. You mean the day my father made you my manservant?"
Merlin opens his mouth, then pauses. "If you prefer that angle. I just thought... to celebrate --"
"Merlin." Merlin looks up too quickly, ever a creature of hope. "Why on earth would I celebrate getting stuck with the worst servant in all of Camelot?"'
"No reason. I'll get your breakfast, then."
