Merlin was dumbfounded--no, more shocked than anything. All the blind rage that Arthur spewed at him earlier was not expected when Merlin told him about Mordred.
That was in the fucking past, Merlin recalled yelling at Arthur, I'm leaving and when I come back I expect for you to have your sense back!!
Merlin had then slammed the front door and sped off in their car. Arthur would have to walk to work tomorrow.
Now Merlin stood inn front of Guinevere's door. He raised his fist and knocked. He waited. The door opened.
"Oh! Merlin! Why're you here this late at night? What happened?" Gwen's smile quickly turned into a concerned frown as she took Merlin into her house, sitting him down on the couch.
"I'll make you some tea," Gwen hastily went to the kitchen and busied herself.
Merlin noticed that there was a book sitting upside-down on the coffee table--he guessed that Gwen was reading before he came to her house. The title of the book read Eleanor and Park. Hmm...guess Gwen is one who likes to read romance novels.
A few minutes passed by and Gwen came back into the living room, two cups of tea in her hand. She moved aside a picture of her and Lancelot before setting down one cup and forcing another into Merlin's hands.
"Okay, what happened?" Gwen asked. She was sitting beside Merlin, facing towards him.
Merlin took a long swallow of his drink before answering, "I told Arthur...about Mordred. He's pissed."
"Why'd you tell him now?"
"Thought it was about time to tell him..."
"How mad is he?"
"Mad enough to throw a glass at the wall."
"Goodness! Sorry, Merlin," Gwen patted his knee sympathetically, "Well you can stay for as long as you have to, okay?"
