Prompt: 146 Date
It had always been a somber day: Arthur’s favorite meal, one present. After Uther’s death, even that small celebration ceased. Arthur’s birthday was a day like any other, acknowledged only in a trip to the tombs and their King’s shadowed eyes.
Gwen and Arthur had once hoped there would be other celebrations throughout the year but little Pendragons never arrived. Hers was the only birthday the entire court could enjoy.
Merlin’s parties were always ridiculously raucous. Drink flowed like water and laughter rang from the rafters. He pulled Arthur and Gwen along, making his day a gift they’d all share.
