I don't own Merlin. (Sadly.)

Here is another Merlin story. This one popped in my head and I just had to write it.

This story shall have three chapters :)

Thank you to Cathcer1984 and ForeverCullen for their help. I love you both :) x

I apologise in advance for any mistakes I may have made :)

Arthur woke up at the sound of his alarm and leaned over his boyfriend to hit the snooze. Arthur loved this bit of the morning, the alarm would wake him up, he would hit the snooze to have an extra five minutes and use this five minutes to hold Merlin closer to him and kiss him awake. "Morning baby." Arthur mumbled when Merlin started to respond to his kisses.

Merlin wrapped his arms around Arthur and moved his head so Arthur was kissing his neck whilst laying on top of him as Merlin thrust his morning erection upwards.

Arthur moaned and reached down with one hand to curl his hand around Merlin's cock as he moved his mouth further down, parting his lips to bite and suck Merlin's neck.

It was later that morning when Merlin and Arthur was having their breakfast when a pounding sounded at their door. Arthur who had just finished his cereal stood up and walked over to their door.

"Who on earth?" Arthur mumbled as he went to answer the door. He opened the door and was pushed aside by Merlin's best friend Will. "Do come in Will." Arthur said sarcastically as he shut the door.

"It's Merlin's flat." he sneered.

"Actually Will it is mine and Arthur's as it is in both of our names on the document and when are you going to get over this whole hating Arthur?" Merlin said as he walked out of the kitchen.

"Why may I ask is the reason for such an early visit Will?"

"I'm getting married."

"Someone actually wants to marry you?" Arthur asked, eyebrows raised.

Will turned and gave Arthur a look. "Yes. Someone actually wants to marry me and spend there life with me. I hate to think of the poor sod that ends up with you."

"Oi! I am here you know Will. I will end up with Arthur and it will be because it is what I want."

"Sorry Merlin. Forgot you was here."

"Of course. Why would Merlin be here at this time in the morning. He only lives here."

Will ignored Arthur's sarcastic comment and faced Merlin. "I want you to be my best man Merlin."

"I will on one condition."

"Which is?"

"Apologise to Arthur. There really is no need to hate him. I don't know why you do actually. He has never done anything to you."

"Once a cheat always a cheat."

Arthur walked forward and stood next to Merlin, facing Will. "Are you serious? I have never cheated, nor will I ever cheat on Merlin."

"You cheated with Merlin on your girlfriend Vivian. Who is to say you won't cheat on Merlin with someone."

"For the reasons I am about to give. One: I only went out with Vivian to keep my father happy. I never loved her I never even went further than kissing. Merlin was my first and he will be my last. Two: I fell in love with Merlin which is why I won't cheat on him. It didn't bother me that I was cheating on her as I never loved her. I know that is wrong but it is as I say. I didn't love Vivian, never did. But I love Merlin therefore I will never so much as look at anyone else."

"She was heartbroken when you left her." Will interrupted.

"Bollocks Will. She wasn't heartbroken because I left her. Vivian was seeing people behind my back, she had even flaunted it in front of me. She didn't love me, she never did. The only thing she loved about me was my money. It was that she was sad to lose. Not me. You need to get all of the facts straight and understand everything before you accuse people of what you don't understand."

Arthur looked at Merlin. "I'm going to get ready for work." he said and walked into their bedroom, shutting the door behind him with a slam.

Will looked from the shut door to Merlin who was slowly clapping. "Bravo. For months I had been trying to tell you this. Now do you see? Unless you apologise to Arthur and mean it Will. I can't be your best man."

"I'm sorry Merlin. I will wait until he comes out and then apologise and mean it. I didn't know it all and I should have done before accusing him of all sorts."

Merlin smiled and went to put the kettle on.

Arthur came walking out of the bedroom fifteen minutes later and stopped when he saw Will sat on the settee with Merlin, cup of coffee in his hand. "Arthur. I want to apologise. I never realised it all and didn't know it all before I accused you. I am sorry and it won't happen again."

"I accept your apology." Will sighed with relief and turned to look at Merlin. "I will be your best man."

"Thank you."

Arthur put his coat and shoes on and gave Merlin a loving kiss. "I will be at the office until late. You ought to take Will out tonight and celebrate."

"Are you sure?"

"Yeah. I will be in meetings with father and then be sat in my office to try to get things done. Determined to so I can get the weekend off to spend with you. Go and enjoy yourself tonight."

Merlin smiled and kissed Arthur. "I love you."

"I love you too." Arthur said and gave Merlin a final kiss, nodded his head at Will and then winked at Merlin with a promise to ring later and then left.

"Is Arthur like this with you always?"


"Kissing you, working hard to get a weekend off to spend with you and always telling you he loves you?"

"Yes Will. Are you like that with Freya?"

"Well I am always kissing her and telling her I love her. And now she has made me the happiest man by saying yes."

Arthur looked out of his office window and sighed at the moon. It was half past nine and he was still stuck at work. But he was determined to get this last bit done so he could spend the weekend with Merlin. Merlin. Arthur took a two minute rest to just think how Merlin was.

Merlin had rang Arthur at six to say they had just got to the pub, by now Arthur just knew that Merlin would be absolutely drunk. Merlin could never hold his drink. Where Arthur could have a few pints and still remain sober, Merlin was as drunk as anything after a few pints and if Merlin had mixed them with spirits, Arthur dreaded to think what Merlin was like now.

Just then Arthur's office phone rang. He picked up the receiver. "Hello? Arthur Pendragon speaking."

"Arfa. You still at work?" came Merlin's slurred voice.

"No Merlin. I was at home and heard my office phone ring so I ran back to work."

Merlin barked with laughter down the receiver. "You funny. I...I...Oh I want you Arfa. I need you. Can I come to your office and ride your big cock in your big chair?"

"As much as I love that thought baby I think it is best if I say no. I have nearly finished and then I will be home."

"I see you soon then I am about to do something special for you."

"What's that then?"

"Nah. I'm not telling. Y..y..you'd have to wait and see. Love you Arfa."

Arthur couldn't help but laugh. "I love you too baby."

The next morning Arthur woke up and found that he couldn't move as a very naked Merlin was lying on top of him. Arthur got home at eleven and was still awake at gone midnight and Merlin still wasn't home.

Arthur lifted his head to look at the clock to see it had just gone nine in the morning. "Merlin?"

Merlin mumbled and turned his head, burying his face even further into Arthur's chest. "Morning baby." Arthur said, smacking Merlin's bare arse causing him to cry out in pain. "Ow."

"I didn't hit you that hard baby. It was a playful tap."

"It's not that. It's just...it hurts. I think I might have fallen over at some point."

"How did you fall over?"

"I don't know. I can't remember much of last night."

"You don't remember ringing me then?"

Merlin lifted his head up. "I rang you? What did I say?"

"That you was about to do something special for me."

Merlin frowned. "I can't think what. If I can't even remember ringing and talking to you-"

"And asking if you could ride my big cock in my big office chair." Arthur added.

"Oh right. Well if I can't remember any of that just how drunk was I? I'll have to ask Will how I made it home." Merlin leaned down and placed a kiss on Arthur. "I'm going for a shower. Care to join me?" Merlin jumped up and off Arthur and got as far as the door before Arthur laughing loudly stopped him in his tracks. "What's funny?"

"No wonder your arse hurts." Arthur said as he got out of bed and walked over to Merlin.

"What do you mean?"

Arthur took Merlin by the upper arms and led him over to the stand up mirror. "Look over your shoulder baby."

Merlin did as Arthur said and saw his naked back in the mirror. "Look at your arse Merlin."

Merlin let his eyes drop and felt his jaw drop and his eyes widen when he saw the letters 'Art' on his left cheek and 'hur' on his right cheek in fancy lettering.

"I am guessing that this was the surprise you had for me Merlin. I must admit that I am very flattered."

"I got a tattoo? And not just any tattoo. But one my arse!"

"And of my name. What a way to tell me you love me Merlin."

What do you think?

Chapter two will be up within four days :)
