"Stop chewing on his arm! Release him immediately!" Merlin roared as he finally managed to catch up with the old waterhorse.
Killgharrah had been dragging his beloved Arthur around in the ocean like he was some toy.
Killgharrah snorted water at him. "Why? What use is he to you,hmmm?" he mumbled threw the side of his huge snout.
"Please, he is my friend. I don't...I dont' wanna lose him." Merlin wasn't sure if he already had. Arthur seemed not to stir. Killgharrah opened his huge mouth and Arthur slid into the water, lifeless.
"Why should I obey you, you are not yet my lord. Your father still lives. I don't see why I should always do as you ask, you are but a mere fry after all. Besides, I was hungry, I'll have you know. I haven't had human flesh in, in centuries. And that specimen looks positively delicious, plump in all the right places".
But Merlin didn't listen. He checked Arthur all over. He could still feel a heart beat! Arthur was still alive then. "Arthur?" Arthur suddenly came a wake with a gurgly gasp and started coughing violently. "Mer...I..can't brea...Mer..." Merlin quickly pressed his mouth to Arthur's.
Killgharrah snorted. "I wasn't going to eat him you know. You two share a destiny."
Arthur broke away from the kiss, a huge smile on his face. "Merlin? What did you do?"
"Perks of dating a merman."
