The first time Arthur laid eyes on Merlin, he was dancing to some ridiculous song.
His hips swayed and Arthur was sure that the man he was looking at was definitely not straight. It wasn’t due to the song selection, but the fact that the woman he was dancing with, dark curly hair, skin smooth with a mixture of espresso and caramel, barely kept his attention. He’d turn her around but wouldn’t notice that her skirt would lift a little or her top would slide a bit too much to the right off her shoulder; he was busy glaring at another man’s arse. It was tragic really, the woman, not Merlin, that she wore a shirt too loose, and a skirt too snug. It was as though she’d walked out of a really bad 80s film; just like the song that was playing. The song was terribly tragic, indeed.
I'm sorry if I say, "I need you."
But I don't care,
I'm not scared of love.
'Cause when I'm not with you I'm weaker.
Is that so wrong?
Is it so wrong
That you make me strong?
Arthur watched Merlin move; his trousers snug tight around his perfect arse, his ridiculous hair waving left and right covering his giant ears…
“Stick your tongue in,” a voice from Arthur’s right whispered, “…and pick up your jaw off the floor.”
Arthur turned to look and saw his friend Gwaine smirking at him. He looked at Gwaine confused, pretending as though he had no idea what Gwaine was talking about.
“That’s Merlin. I could introduce you…”
Arthur shook his head. Merlin. What a strange name.
