It's 2017 and Merlin has waited so long.... That he's forgotten what he was waiting for in the first place....


1. Pizza Shop

Trying third person for the first time...

I'm excited for this actually.

Yes I have others out but come on. Who doesn't love Merthur??

There fucking cute as hell.

"Will you stop changing the channels?" Merlin asks snatching the remote from the young girl who crosses her arms and pouts.

Merlin sighs. "Don't give me that look Clary." He says standing up and heading into the kitchen. He puts his cup in the sink and pours water into it. "You have to get ready to go." He says walking back into the living room to see the young brunette girl pouting still with her arms crossed over her blue shirt that has a Disney princess on it.

"But why Merlin?" She asks throwing herself on to her side making her brown hair go all over the place. "I don't want to go." She whines and Merlin shakes his head looking down at her.

"I'm sorry Clary but you must. Your mother wants to see you." He tells her and she groans but sits up nodding her head.

"Okay I'll go. But I won't like it." She says jumping off the couch and going up the stairs to grab her stuff. Merlin sighs and plops down on the couch and looks out the window at the leafs that change colour due to the change in season.


Merlin chuckles as he gets up at the sound of the young girl yelling for him.

It reminds him of something. Something far, far away in his mind, a faint memory if you would say.

"Merlin!" She yells again which only makes him get up the stairs much faster, ignoring the thoughts he just had.

"Yes? What would you like?" He asks popping his head in the door frame only to see the small child glaring at the bag that is now on its side with things thrown out of it on the floor.

He chuckles. "What are you doing?" The small girl glares at him.

"Don't make fun of me Merlin." She says and Merlin walks over and helps her pick up the stuff.

"Come on." Merlin says motioning for her to help pick up. She sighs but does as told.

After picking up all the things and zipping up her bag, there's a knock at the door making Clary groan.

Merlin chuckles and goes down the stairs with the child complaining the whole way down. He rolls his eyes as he opens the door.

"Oh hello Merlin. How are you doing?" Clary's mother, Jill asks. He smiles back and opens the door so she can come in.

"I'm doing fine thank you for asking. How are you?" He asks and she grins as Merlin shuts the door.

"I'm doing good. Where is Clary?" She asks and just as those words leave her lips Clary comes down the stairs dragging her bag with her, frowning.

"Mummy I don't want to go." She whines and Jill chuckles not even fazed by this anymore. This has been going on for as long as Merlin can remember.

"Now, now Clary. Let's be off now. I have to be places." Jill says and Clary nods her head. She drops her bag and rushes over and gives Merlin a hug like always.

"I'll see you next time Clary." Merlin says as they both head out the door it shutting behind them.

He sighs locking his door as he looks at the calendar beside the door and frowns.

Halloween is tomorrow.

He furrows his eyes brows. What should I wear? And how did I forget?

He shrugs his shoulders. "I'll cross that bridge when I get there." He mumbles to himself and shakes his head.

He goes back into the living room and sits down on the couch. He looks up at the tv to see Marly and Me playing. He smiles sadly at the movie and leans back, pulling his knees up to his chest as the movie continues to play.

He leans his head back as he watches the dog run on the beach away from its owners.

"What would it be like if I were a dog?" He says to himself out loud in his now empty place.

He sighs shaking his head as he looks at the time to see its only 5:30pm.

He closes his eyes as he yawns and rubs his eyes as he tries to stay awake to at least finish this movie. Plus it would screw up his sleeping pattern if he slept.

But we can't all win.

Merlin closes his eyes and before he knows it, he's asleep.


Merlin looks around confused as to where he is but then realizes he's on his couch and he fell asleep. He groans sitting up and seeing it's now almost 8:00.

His mind is fuzzy from the dream he had. He can only remember bits and pieces of it.

Someone yelling Merlin a bunch of times. And not in the nice way.

They sounded annoyed and some even mad. He hasn't pissed off anyone recently. Well that he knows of anyways.

He shakes his head and runs a hand through his black tousled curly hair. He rubs the sleep away from his eyes.

He rolls his eyes and gets up, stretching his arms over his head as his brown t-shirt rises up a little to reveal his stomach.

His stomach rumbles and he frowns looking down at his flat stomach.

"Better eat something." He mumbles as he makes his way to the kitchen. "Let's find something shall we."

Merlin goes into the kitchen and opens the fridge only to find it empty. The same with the cabinets.

Well don't I suck? He thinks rolling his eyes and groaning.

He walks over to his coat hanger grabbing his coat and he throws on his VANs. He grabs a blue scarf and for some reason, hesitates before glancing at the red one buried under another plaid one. He then shakes his head and switches scarfs before questioning his sanity even more and leaves the house.

He checks his phone and sees its already quarter to 9. He ruffles his black hair out and sighs as a pizza shop comes in view.

He opens the door and the bell rings and the smell of cooking pizzas overwhelms Merlin making him smile.

'Man I love pizza' he thinks walking over to the counter.

A girl with her brown hair up in a bun smiles at him. "Hi what can I get you?" She says all ready for his order.

Merlin smiles softly back, "I'll have a medium cheese please with a side of crazy cheese bread." He tells her as he gets out his wallet and she rings it all up.

"That'll be 18.98$." She says as Merlin gives her 20$.

"Uh keep the change." He says and she grins and goes to the back of the shop.

Merlin sits on one of the chairs and gets out his phone and scrolls through his contacts, looking for anyone to talk with, but it's completely empty besides him and the people in the back.

His phone goes off making him jump a little at the sudden noise coming from his hand.

'Merlin? You coming to Halloween party tomorrow night? If not I will kill you personally.'

Merlin chuckles shaking his head. Man that girl is strange, but I love her to pieces.

'I'll be there, still need a costume though so might be a little late.'

He sends it and puts his phone away as he gets called over because his pizza is done.

He thanks her and takes the boxes and heads back out towards his home. He hums some random song he heard on the radio while he walks, shivering a little in the cold air around him.

As he comes up to his road there is a giant car crash.

What the bloody hell?

He furrows his eyebrows as an officer comes over.

"Sir, you can't be here. I'm going to need to ask you to leave. No photos." She says frowning at Merlin as he slowly takes a step back and turns around.

"Guess I have to go through the park. Yay me." He mumbles to himself as he goes to his left towards the park to get home.

There was always something about the park that always gives him a stomachache, makes him feel like shit.

He steps on the cement path and his grip tightens on his box.

He looks around, almost like he's being watched. He stops and tenses and looks all around him by the trees and the park equipment. He then turns and looks over at the lake that's been there sense he got there. The black darkness of it stares back at him.

He shudders and not from the cold this time.

He starts walking and slowly starts picking up his pace until he's almost jogging to get out of the park.

'Fuck this shit.'

The moon gets covered by a cloud and everything goes black making Merlin freeze in mid step. 

For a few heart beats, it's just him and the darkness and pizza in his hands that is probably cold by now.

He takes a deep breath and slowly lets it out his shoulders relaxing a little when he only hears him.

Then sound from his left makes him tense up again.

He winces when he hears the sound again and closes his eyes tight.

He doesn't need to look to his left to know where the sound is coming from.

The water.

He doesn't need to hear the sound of water moving to make him start to sprint.

Holding the pizza carefully he books it out of the park.

Thank god for long legs.

He reaches his place and quickly grabs his key and unlocks the door as fast as he can and then locks it back up again once inside.

He lets out a big breath and leans his forehead against the now locked door.

"I'm going crazy. Bloody mad." He says to himself as he walks to the kitchen and puts the boxes on the counter, not even bothering to look at them.

His phone rings making him jump and bump into a chair that's been pulled out sense this morning when Clary had cereal. He winces and holds onto his side.

He fishes it out of his coat pocket and holds it up to his ear.


"What do you mean you don't have a costume?" Comes a reply from the other end making Merlin roll his eyes.

"Exactly as it sounds. Holly I don't have a costume. And it's to late now to go get one. Everything is closed tomorrow because of Halloween." Merlin says taking off his scarf and then his coat all while trying to hold the phone up to his ear.

Then he remembers he can just put her on speaker.

Genius Merlin.

He pushes the speaker button just as she begins to talk again.

"Merlin, its Halloween! How do you not have a damn costume?!" Holly yells at him and he hangs his coat up along with his scarf, ignoring her question all together.

"Holly, listen. I just didn't have time. I had Clary most of the week." He says taking his boots off and setting them at the door. "And before you say it, no I was not taking a 5 year old into a Halloween shop where I can get a costume that fits me properly."

She huffs on the other end. "Well I'm sure you can find something to wear tomorrow. Even if you have to go back and look through boxes or something." She says as Merlin hears her move on the other end.

"Yeah I'm sure I can come up with something." The sarcasm is noted when Holly groans.

"Hey I have an idea." She says sounding more awake then before.

"Uh oh. You know it's not good when you think to hard." Merlin says and she tells him off.

"Listen you shit. Why don't you go as yourself?" And that's when Merlin grows even more confused by the girls tactics.

"What do you mean?" He says glancing over at the abandoned pizza boxes. He gets up, grabs a plat and slowly opens the box.

He smiles at the pizza that's still intact. It just got cold so fast that the toppings seem like he had it in his fridge for a while.

"I mean why not go as Merlin. Literally." She says and Merlin stops what he's doing and almost drops the plat of food.

"Go as Merlin? Literally? Like the kings manservant Merlin?" He asks and I tight knot forms in his stomach and his chest starts to ache, but he doesn't know why.

"Well what other Merlin would I have been talking about?" She sasses back and he can almost picture her with her arms crossed and a hard glare set.

"I-I'll have to see what I got. I have to go I'll text you tomorrow to let you know what's going on." He says before even waiting for her to reply he hangs up and puts his phone down beside him. He sits down and puts his hands in his hair and groans.
