Hi! Here is the asked for one-shot about what Arthur said to Merlin in the dungeons.
Enjoy and please review.
Merlin had been very happy about the fact that he was back at work. It's a bit stupid since he always complained about work, but he was very happy to get to it. He was an adult again making a living. What could be better? Well, a million things, but for now, it was just brilliant for Merlin. He dare say it, but he had even missing cleaning Arthur's smelly boots.
He smiled as he had just finished cleaning one pair of the twenty-five that the Prince owned. Speaking of the Prince, he had just walked into the room.
"Merlin, can I have a word please?" He asked eyes gleaming because of the candle light.
"Bum." He said smiling up at his master.
"Merlin! You are not a kid anymore you know!" Merlin smiled standing up to face the Prince.
"I know, I know... but you did ask for a word and it was the first one that popped into my head." Arthur shook his head. He didn't want to know what he was thinking of to make the first word that popped into his head 'bum'.
"... Anyway. I wanted to talk to you about what I said... In the dungeons." Merlin knew where this was going. When he was younger, he would do something to make a grown up say something they didn't want to say. He got sick of it very quickly.
"Look it doesn't matter..."
"No Merlin, it does..."
"No it doesn't! Really, I got this when I was younger a lot. I don't want anything; you don't have to say you are sorry because I already know that you are. You don't have to say a thing. I-"
"I'm sorry." Merlin stopped in mid sentence. He had been waving his arms around, but he froze. He dropped his arms and stared at him.
"What did you say?" A smile slowly formed on his face. Arthur chuckled and smiled himself.
"I said I am sorry and I'm glad you... found yourself at long last." Merlin laughed. He smiled and laughs and so did Arthur. Merlin never thought he'd ever hear those words.
"Arthur, such kindness, such heart. A you said sorry and that you were glad that I had found myself." He looked down and shook his head. He then snapped it up seriously and looked at him with murderous eyes. "Who are you and what have you do with the Prince?" He said threatening him with his polishing rag.
"What? Merlin! It's me! The prat headed Prince."
"Arthur would never say those things or the fact that he was a prat headed Prince! Steallick!" He screamed for the wolf. Arthur's face was drained of its blood. He had given his word that he wouldn't hard one hair on that wolfs head.
He couldn't attack it.
He heard a growl at the door and he turned round sharply to see Steallick there with all of his sharp, deadly teeth showing. The wolf snarled at him looking ready to pounce and kill. Arthur turned back to Merlin with a look of horror on his face.
"Merlin!" He screamed in outrage. Merlin smiled and shrugged.
"I'm not a kid anymore ya know." He said, half-mocking Arthur. He walked forward and whispered in Arthur's ear. "Just a little pay back for what you said." He walked over to the door where Steallick was. He opened the door wider to walk out.
"You..." Arthur said, shocked that his servant would actually do this. Merlin smiled wickedly at him and raised both eyebrows twice, devilishly. He turned to Steallick.
"All yours mate." And with that, he walked out of the room, closing the door behind him.
Merlin smiled as Arthur started calling out or help. The sound of things being knocked off tables filled the room.
Hope you liked it, and no, Steallick doesn't eat Arthur. Just scratches him up like a cat would.
