Merlin walked through the door into his flat. “I'm home!” he called out. There was no answer; he sighed and closed the door.

He walked past the living room on the way to dump his stuff in his room; fortunately it was semi-clean today so there was space. It had been a frickin' long day at work and he just wanted to become one with the sofa. He noticed Arthur sitting there as he passed.

After that, he reversed course and headed to the kitchen. He'd had to stay at work past dinner time. But he stopped short in front of the sink. The dishes, which Arthur was supposed to have done, were still piled high.

“Arthur!” he yelled, “you forgot the dishes.” No response. “Arthur!” Still no response. He poked his head out the door; Arthur was still on the sofa. He seemed to be staring impassively into the distance, doing nothing but ignoring his flatmate.

“Arthur!” he yelled one more time before marching right up behind him. “Arthur?” Nothing. He walked around to stand directly in front of the blonde.

Arthur jumped at Merlin's sudden appearance. He pulled an earbud out of his ear and said, “Oh, hey, Merlin. You surprised me.”

Earbuds, Merlin thought and rolled his eyes. “I can see that, clotpole. I'be been trying to get your attention for the last five minutes.”

"What for?”

“You forgot to do the dishes.”

Arthur smacked his head. “So I did. Sorry, mate. I'll do them now.” He got up and went to the kitchen.

“Thank you!” Merlin flopped down into Arthur's space and sighed. He could relax at last--then his stomach rumbled. After dinner.
