Author's Notes: Still more to come I think. But later. This is the most incest I've written in a long while; I need to rest my brain. XD
Will was his best friend. His best friend since childhood. It had honestly never occurred to him that Will would also have a crush on him. Why would he want Merlin? But he did. And he had chosen to show Merlin that he wanted him by kissing him in front of the school. It just so happened to be on the day that Arthur was supposed to pick him up.
Merlin couldn’t see Arthur’s face as he walked towards the car, but he had heard the irritation in his voice as he’d called Merlin’s name. Merlin had swallowed nervously and given Will a small smile before dashing over to the car. When he’d gotten in and buckled Arthur had tore out of the parking lot and glared at him.
“What the hell was that?”
Merlin stayed silent. Arthur clenched his teeth and his hands tightened on the steering wheel.
“What, so you can’t get your rocks off with your brother so you settle for playing butt pirates with your friends?” Arthur sneered. Finally it gets a reaction from Merlin.
“Shut up! You have no idea what you’re talking about!”
“I think I can see pretty clearly what I’m talking about Merlin!”
Merlin bit his lip hard and turned to face the window. He wouldn’t say anything to Arthur the whole ride back home. When they get home and Merlin goes to open the car door he speaks to Arthur over his shoulder, voice low and broken.
“You have no idea, Arthur. No fucking clue what’s going on with me.”
And with that he dashed from the car and into the house before Arthur could even formulate a reply. Arthur sat for a few moments trying to figure out why his chest was so tight and why he felt so guilty.
A few months later and Arthur was moving out. Going off to uni. Moving on to bigger and better things. The night before he’s set to leave things have finally calmed down. Earlier they’d all had a family day: hanging out, going out to dinner, talking and talking. But now it’s late and pretty much everyone was asleep. Except for two brothers.
Arthur had snuck into Merlin’s room, tip-toeing it as he hadn’t known whether or not his brother would be asleep. But Merlin had been awake. Awake and looking at Arthur with uncertainty painted across his face and a question in his eyes. Arthur had smiled at him, which was soon enough returned, along with a raised comforter which Arthur gratefully slipped himself under.
They snuggled down under the blanket on their sides, just looking at each other. Merlin spoke first.
“I will miss you I guess. Prat.”
Arthur huffed a laugh. “Yeah I guess I’ll miss you too. Idiot.”
Merlin giggled a little too, and they eventually settled back into comfortable silence. Then Merlin got this contemplative look on his face.
“I’m sorry you know.”
Arthur was about ninety percent sure he knew what Merlin was talking about. He shook his head. “Merlin, you have nothing to be sorry for. You didn’t do anything wrong.”
“Hah. Right,” Merlin scoffed and said self-deprecatingly, “I fell in love with my brother. In what world could that possibly not be wrong?”
“Merlin…” Arthur sighed and ran a finger down Merlin’s cheek, stopping to run once over his lips. They were softer than any girls. Arthur closed his eyes as the wholly inappropriate surge of want flashed through him.
And then Merlin breathed his name like something precious and Arthur was lost. Their lips met in what had to be the chastest kiss he’d ever had, but it was followed quickly by Merlin making a small keening sound. As Arthur flicked his tongue over Merlin’s bottom lips he wondered if this was Merlin’s first kiss. Something hot and angry settled in the pit of his stomach at the thought that someone else (like Will) had gotten to kiss Merlin’s soft lips before Arthur.
Then Merlin was tentatively sneaking his tongue out and touching Arthur’s lips. Arthur responded instantly, opening his mouth and drawing Merlin’s tongue in with his own. Merlin moaned into his brother’s mouth, hands clutching at the front of his shirt. Then one of those hands started to make their way down Arthur’s chest, then his stomach, then came to a stop over the bulge in his jeans.
Arthur gasped as Merlin squeezed lightly. He pulled away, breathing harshly in the dark under Merlin’s blankets. Gently he grasped Merlin’s wrist and pulled the boy’s hand away, lacing their fingers together. Merlin worried his bottom lip, uncertainty and rejection washing over his fingers.
“You don’t want…?”
Arthur kissed him softly to reassure him. “You’re only fourteen, Merlin.”
Then Merlin’s face took on a mulish expression and Arthur had to chuckle. He untangled their hands and slipped his own underneath Merlin’s shirt, heading straight up to run his thumb over Merlin’s nipple. Merlin gasped at the sensation. Apparently he was sensitive. With a grin Arthur brought their lips together again, this time rubbing and rolling Merlin’s nipple in his fingers. He could feel Merlin’s hard length as he rutted against him.
Merlin’s movements seemed to be getting more erratic with each passing minute. With one last nip to his brother’s lip Arthur moved down to bite and lick at the spot where Merlin’s neck met his collarbone. Merlin moaned and his hips pushed into Arthur’s faster. A minute later Merlin froze and Arthur felt a wet spot on his thigh. He swallowed and mouthed lightly at Merlin’s neck. He’d made Merlin come. Right there, on his leg. They’d actually done this. And tomorrow Arthur’d be off to university.
In the silence and stuffiness beneath the blankets Arthur pressed one last kiss to Merlin’s lips. Already the boy’s eyes were dropping, but he had this ridiculous besotted look on his face. Between the heavy breaths coming from both of them Arthur whispered, “I really am going to miss you Merls.”
