"How about you run away with me, Gwen?" Merlin announces, fingers slipping a lavender wildflower into her curls.

His eyes peek at Arthur bending over his desk, just as she glances over, too.

"What do you think, hmm? I'm not as big of a prat as Arthur—"

"—you're about to be one less prat I need to deal with," Arthur says across the bedchamber, voice getting aggressively louder. His expressions focusing on the paperwork.

Gwen laughs, smile widening as Merlin's hands gently roam her shoulders.

"As tempting as it sounds," she answers, placing a light kiss to the tip of Merlin's nose. "I doubt I would be very happy without the both of you…"

"Guess that's fair," Merlin says, sounding cheerful. His right hand moves down to her breast. Merlin's thumb immediately drag away the loose fabric to her bodice. Gwen stares back at him, dreamy-eyed, lips parting when Merlin drops his face. Gwen's mouth opens further, when Merlin's lips press to hers. A higher but soft moan leaving her.

He massages a darkly coloured nipple, rubbing between two of his fingers as Gwen shudders pleasantly and grips him close.

Arthur peers up in growing curiosity, as Merlin's empty hand lowers to Gwen's arse, caressing her. No matter how many times he's been distracted, only to find his two most beloved person entertaining themselves, it never fails to stir a wild heat in Arthur's chest, traveling down to the base of his cock.

They're slow rhythm and warmth—a delight to his senses.

Arthur crowds Gwen, one of Merlin's arms circling him on instinct. It's only the early hours of morning, but Arthur can think of no better way to spend it.

A sleepy kind of admiration tremors every part of him. Arthur inhales a little too sharply.

Hands crawl to Merlin's neck, both his and Gwen's, with no desire to see Merlin go. Arthur's nails scrape down, and he leaves a sucking kiss to Gwen's neck, observing Merlin with half-lidded eyes as the other man pulls away, gulping for air.

"Arthur," escapes Merlin, more throaty groan than articulation, and it's plenty all he needs to say. Arthur's hand on his neck jerks him forward.

He faintly tastes apple and spices, when Merlin's tongue surges wet the inside of his mouth.

Arthur's hand replaces Merlin's to Gwen's breast, filling with heated, pliable weight. He rucks up the side of her dress, grinding himself to her. How lovely it would be—Guinevere atop his manservant, naked as the day she was brought into the world. Merlin's cock buried inside her, and her brown, smiling cheeks—

A BOOMING! knock on the locked, double chamber-doors.

The three of them jolt—Arthur's hands yanking back at his sides, Gwen clapping her mouth, and Merlin's eyes going glow-yellow around the edges in warning.

"Sire!" Agravaine hollers through the wood, exasperated. "I fear your useless servant slept through his duties! You must attend the council's meeting!"

Useless, Merlin mouths back, glaring towards the doors.

Gwen tuts, as silently she can. She hooks her arms around Merlin's waist, cuddling him.

"Yes, of course! Inform the council I'll be down!" Arthur yells, having given himself a moment of composure. To not sound as breathless with raw lust. He snorts at Merlin's nasty look, leaning and kissing a reddening ear quickly, keeping his mouth pushed warmly against Merlin's temple.

"Very good, sire… …!"

As soon as the footsteps disappear, a collective sigh is made.

"You've never been useless, Merlin," Gwen insists, meeting their eyes. She rubs Merlin's back one-handed as he groans unintelligible, resting against her and Arthur's head.

"Never," Arthur repeats quietly.
