Title: A dog's devotion
Character/s:Uther, Merlin, Arthur
Summary:Uther sees things that trouble him.
Prompt: 150, Uther
Author's Notes: None
Uther was not blind. He could see how that boy followed Arthur, all devotion and scrawny limbs. Merlin might have a grave mental affliction but the loyalty was undeniable, and at times, he'd been useful as an ally in the war against magic. For that alone, Uther could overlook many things.
Even the adoration shining in the boy's eyes when he looked at Arthur. A servant's love was expected as long as they kept their place.
Because while Merlin might trail after Arthur like the loyal dog he was, if that love were ever returned, dogs could be put down.
