She was beautiful.

Arthur slid his hand down her side and up again, carefully, gently, wanting to feel the silky smoothness of her perfection.

Sending endless shivers across his skin as he touched her, his heart pounding, his breathing sharp, he pulled her closer to him, his fingers followed her undulating curves across the dip of her spine, his palm curling around her as he did.

He felt the luckiest man in the world, being able to stroke her like that. It made his dreams at night a glorious exhaustion.

She was his, she would always be his.

His Excalibur.

Two for the price of one. I swear I wrote something with a similar theme but I can't find it so I'm posting it anyway.

He tried to smile. It was a joyous day after all, melding two hearts into a single whole. Arthur and Gwen were magnificent together, delighted grins on their faces throughout the ceremony, and then the clotpoll, cabbage-headed, emotionally-stunted Arthur, bent down to steal a kiss.

Merlin stumbled away, determined to ignore the giggles that followed and the cheering crowds. The music, the laughter muted as Merlin slammed doors between him and his heart's destruction.

He didn't want to cry, he didn't. Instead, he buried his dreams in drink and despair. And hoped that someday, being Arthur's friend would be enough.
