Prompt: 58 Announcement
Author's Notes: Angst

Merlin fingered the small envelope, toying with just dropping it into the bin rather than opening it. He’d been hearing the rumors making the rounds for weeks but still couldn’t believe Arthur had bent to Uther’s will and proposed to Elena. Here in his hand was possibly the proof Merlin had been dreading. He bit his lip and slid a finger under the flap, pulling out the small off-white card, stomach plummeting.

He gave it a quick perusal, eyes widening with shock. Instead of the formal invitation he had been expecting, it was a piece of card stock with a message scrawled across it in Arthur’s hurried hand:

Merlin, Let’s get the old man off our backs for good. I love YOU! Make me the happiest man in the world and marry me? All my love forever, Arthur

P.S. Stop listening to office gossip.

Merlin rose up on shaky legs, making a bee line to his boyfriend’s office. He hoped Arthur was alone but Merlin was going to kiss him within an inch of his life whether they had an audience or not.
