Merlin had hoped he would be alone with Arthur if—when—it happened. Unfortunately, three other knights saw the spear guide itself into an attacker's neck before he could kill Arthur.

Three pairs of wide eyes turned towards Merlin. Lancelot took a step forward to stand beside him. Gwaine stepped in front of him, standing almost on top of him.

Arthur tore his gaze away and fixed it on the knight a few feet to his left.

"Sir Leon…did you…?"

"Yes sire." He looked towards the others. "Incredible spear-throwing, Sir Gwaine. I didn't know you had it in you."

I'm going to try for 100 drabbles. If you have a prompt/idea/request/challenge, let me know and I will give it a shot.
