A Kiss On The Cheek Means We're Just Friends

It all started in December; the servants had put mistletoe up around the castle hallways as some nobles were visiting to bring seasons greetings, and their daughters to meet Camelot's prince, Arthur Pendragon.

Arthur was walking back to his chambers with his servant explaining to him why he was such an idiot.

"I don't care about your excuses, the point is…" He stopped mid-sentence when he heard girlish giggling. He and Merlin looked to see Morgana and Gwen covering their mouths. "Dare I ask?" Arthur asked, folding his arms.

The girls pointed to above the boys heads and Merlin dropped everything he had been carrying. He looked at them, pleading, "No, please don't make us." Arthur was still looking up at the mistletoe with disbelief.

"Well, you could just walk away, but that would mean bad luck in the New Year. And for the prince…that wouldn't be too good." She said smirking. Arthur glared at her, then Gwen, then lastly, Merlin.

"What did I do?"

"You stood under it!" Arthur pointed up at the mistletoe.

"So did you!" Merlin argued.

"Aren't they just the cutest couple you ever saw?" Morgana asked Gwen who nodded in response, still giggling. "Well, what are you waiting for?"

Arthur growled at her and faced Merlin who looked quite worried now. He sighed putting a hand on Merlin's shoulder and pulled him forward slightly. Merlin looked at him then at the girls.

"Does he actually have to…?" He stopped speaking as soon as Arthur's lips touched his cheek. The kiss was only brief and Merlin was pushed backwards after and had to put his hands on the wall to support himself.

"Pick up those things, idiot!" Arthur shouted as he stomped to his chambers, hiding his blush as he passed the girls who nodded to each other knowingly.
