Arthur's jaw dropped. The armory was a wreak, and Merlin was standing in the middle of it.

"What happened!" Arthur demanded.

"Rust! I was checking for rust!" Merlin gasped.

"Merlin, it hasn't rained in two weeks."

"How would you know? It could've rained last night."

Arthur glared at Merlin. He knew Merlin was lying to cover up some stupid mistake. Surely, the truth was more reasonable than 'checking for rust.' But what if the truth was more ridiculous than that pathetic lie? Arthur wasn't sure which idea was worse.

Did he even want to find out?

Please review :)
