Word Count: 100
Prompt: #221 Decision
Author's Notes: none.
It was easy once he'd got past the heart-shaking anxiety of it. The decision. Watched Arthur for days after that, watched him fight, watched him eat and bathe and sleep, watched him watching Merlin back. There were questions in Arthur's eyes but he was as stubborn as Merlin could be at times.
Merlin let the tension grow, let Arthur be just a little unsettled before he made his move. It would make Arthur vulnerable, would startle him, and maybe, just maybe would get him to say yes.
"Arthur, would you, could you? Marry me?"
"Idiot, I thought you'd never ask."
