"Arthur, are you sure?" Merlin asked, he looked so hesitant and confused that all Arthur wanted to do was reach over and pull him in. He wanted Merlin to stay in bed with him. He wanted this day to not start so he could simply enjoy this moment with his lover.
No expectations of a Prince.
No expectations from his father.

"I’m not king yet, Merlin," Arthur said. And he didn’t know if he’d ever be king now, after what he’d done with Merlin. "Now, be quiet."
