Author's Notes: follow up from last week's MAKING NEW FRIENDS. Unbetaed. pardon the errors
Whenever Merlin was in his class with Arthur, Arthur made it a point to speak to him. It was really infuriating because they weren't allowed to talk all the time.
Merlin just didn't understand how Arthur didn't get that. He didn't want to get in trouble, not at the new school, but Arthur seemed to not care about the rules.
"Stop," Merlin finally said a week after Arthur kept interrupting the study sessions to talk to Merlin. Merlin didn't want to risk getting a "time out," even it that sounded really childish. The teachers at the new school weren't beyond that. They gave you a time out no matter how old you were.
"What?" Arthur asked, sounding surprised.
"Stop trying to be my friend. I'm not interested," Merlin said, harshly. He didn't have any other choice. He cared more about his reputation with the teachers than his friendship with Arthur -- even if that wasn't true -- not really.
"Fine!" Arthur shouted and threw a set of papers at Merlin before he walked out of class.
Arthur bloody walked out of class! Merlin couldn't believe that. He was surely going to get in trouble now.
