Title: Questions

Summary: "Merlin, what are you running from?" A response/sequel to Kitty O's Underestimated drabble Unreliable.

Disclaimer: I unfortunately do not own Merlin or any of these characters. They belong to BBC and Shine.


Gwen was laid in bed with a broken ankle when she finally asked.

"Merlin, what are you running from?"

"I don't know what you're talking about."

"You're running from something, always have been. At least since I've known you. What is it, Merlin? What has you so afraid that you're running from yourself all the time?"

"I'm not sure what you mean, running. I'm right here. What would I have to run from?"

"That's what I'd like to know."

Merlin turned away from her looking sad. He turned his head back sadly.

"I think you should get some rest Gwen."


A/N: This is a response to Kitty O's Underestimated drabble Unreliable. I wanted to know what would happen when Gwen finally asked because we know she's polite but she's also only human. :) But I fear it may have started something. D: I want to write more like this! Must... write... merlin rpf... big bang! AHHH well I am ahead...
