The Hatred to His Love

Merlin was a young sorcerer, working as a servant of Prince Arthur and living with the Court Physician, Gaius. But his destiny was to help the Prince return Magic to the Kingdom; without getting himself killed for being a sorcerer that is. Morgana was the King's ward and she too wanted to bring back magic into Camelot. But her hatred for the magic-hating King had pushed her towards dark arts. Though their goal was the same, can their paths ever meet? Read more to find out. :)


5. A master's concern

“Good Morning sire, rise and shine. I’ve brought you your breakfast, polished your shoes, cleaned your armor, readied your bath, even wrote out the speech that you have to give today but forgot to prepare for yesterday as you were courting Gwen. I’ve washed the horses and mucked out the stables too.” Merlin stopped to breathe and then said “I’ll leave you in peace to have your breakfast then.”

“Wait. What’s wrong with you? Are you ill?” Arthur frowned at his servant.

“No why?”

“Well, you’re on time for one thing and you’ve finished all your usual chores early; which is a first I must say. You are also hiding something behind your back and I want to know what it is. Go on, I won’t tease.” Arthur had put on a trying-to-be-persuasive face that didn’t work at all. So he did what he knew best.

“I want to know what you are hiding from me and that is an order.” Arthur smirked knowing Merlin could not disobey an order. But when he saw flowers sprouting from Merlin’s hand he almost had an urge to rub his eyes and check if he was not hallucinating.

“You! Bought! Flowers! For whom?” Merlin blushed red at that and simply looked down on the floor so Arthur added “And that another order.”

Merlin looked up with anger and said “None of your business, you clotpole.”

“Clotpole? Does that even mean anything?”

“In two words?” He asked and when Arthur nodded, smiling widely he answered.

“Prince Arthur.” Then he had to duck to avoid having to nurse a concussion because of being hit by a vase.

“Don’t try and change the topic Merlin. Who are the flowers for?” Arthur persisted but Merlin refused to answer. Part reason was it was none of Arthur’s business but the major reason was that he would not approve if he knew they were for his step sister. He had already caught him once, while taking flowers to the Lady Morgana, when she was ill and unconscious.

Unfortunately some of his thoughts must have shown on his face because Arthur guessed correctly.

“It is for Morgana isn’t it?” and added when he didn’t reply “It won’t work out you know that don’t you? Morgana might even like you that way but Father won’t approve.” Merlin knew it was worry for him that made him say that. Merlin was, no matter how much he denies it in public, Arthur’s best friend.
