Arthur finally had enough of the staring and let out an irritated huff. He looked up at Merlin.
Merlin was apparently looking but not paying attention, because he startled at that.
"Nothing! Nothing. It's just... well. I thought you'd be more. Um."
Arthur narrowed his eyes. "More what?"
"Shocked," Merlin said warily looking at him, as if expecting him to explode at any second.
"Shocked. At you turning out to be gay? I'm not shocked," Arthur said coolly, turning back to his laptop.
"And why is that, exactly?"
Arthur shrugged absentmindedly. “I dunno. It just kinda weirdly makes sense, I guess. Now, are you going to help me with this stupid assignment or not?”
Merlin shook his head, once again giving up on ever understanding the enigma that was his best friend, Arthur Pendragon.
