    Summary

    “What did you do now Merlin?”

    “Got cursed.”

    Merlin slumped into the room and fell onto the bench of the table across from Gaius, laying his head dramatically on a book of something or other Arthur didn’t bother to look too closely at.

    “Cursed.” Gaius echoed, unimpressed.

    “Cursed.” Merlin sighed back, like some kind of weepy maiden.

    “He can’t lie,” Arthur supplied, walking further into the room and standing behind Merlin, pushing his head off the book roughly. Merlin squawked and glared at him before shaking his head and turning back to Gaius.

    "It gets worse."

    Summary

    As Arthur cuts the fruit, Merlin explains what they are. The peaches are soft, their yellow-orange flesh rich with juice that runs down Arthur’s wrist.

    Merlin follows its path with his eyes until Arthur offers him a piece, smiling to himself. When he bites into his own, sweetness bursts across his tongue and his eyes flutter close, staying there when Merlin’s lips brush against his.


    Arthur has never been too fond of his birthday, not even after leaving Camelot and his kingship behind. He probably should've expected that Merlin would do something about it.

    Summary

    Arthur has always had distant dreams of leaving Camelot. They were never more than a wistful fantasy, at least once he grew up.

    Finding out about Merlin’s magic changes everything though, and not only because Arthur would do more to keep Merlin safe than he cares to admit. What follows are secrets upon secrets, allowing the dreams to slip back in as all his father’s lies unravel around him. Slowly but surely, Camelot feels less like a home and more like a gilded cage, and Arthur isn’t so certain anymore whether he’s the right person to carry this legacy. If he even wants to.

    One final secret, one opportunity, and suddenly the dreams aren’t mere dreams anymore. Merlin wouldn’t be Merlin if he didn’t follow wherever Arthur goes, and as they try to outrun Uther’s manhunt for them, they have to learn to live a life that’s about more than duty, other’s expectations, and a destiny that has never once cared for them.

    Or: Arthur long since expected that one day, he might have to flee Camelot with Merlin. He just never thought that he would be the reason.
