Author's Notes: This drabble takes place in my Aithusa's-Verse AU, where Arthur is the owner of a nightclub/strip club, and also one of their performers.
Whenever he takes to the stage, he’s breathless with a mixture of nerves and anticipation. It’s exhilarating and there is absolutely nothing like it. If he closes his eyes, he would swear that it felt like flying.
The first button that pops from its little hole makes him gasp. The moment his belt slides through the loops in his trousers he begins to pant.
But it’s the first time he meets those wide, blue eyes out in audience that his lungs feel like they’re being squeezed in a vice and he finally understands what it’s like to be truly breathless.
