camelot_drabble Prompt: #606 Time Out
Author's Notes: none
When Merlin was little, his mum would send him to the corner for a little calming-down time. He wasn't happy about it, but when he found out other children were beaten into submission instead, he stopped complaining. Mostly.

Those days are long gone. Now, his punishment isn't made of quiet moments of reflection, but the stocks or mucking out the stables or being used as Arthur's practice dummy, complete with insults. Days full of bruises and frustration.

Time-outs are as much for parents as kids, a way to cool off.

But someone needs to tell Arthur that.

Before Merlin does.

I think the job of telling Arthur off is one Merlin will enjoy.

I'm sure Merlin will not resist the temptation to tell Arthur himself! ;-)
