Uncharted Territory (one-sided Arthur/Merlin, Merlin/Freya, PG, 100 words)

mood: blah...

Arthur often ribbed Merlin about Professor Nimueh or his flatmate Gwen, but this was uncharted territory.

Merlin had blown him off two Fridays in a row to help Freya; there seemed to be a new academic crisis whenever Merlin was supposed to be spending time with his best friend.

Arthur sat alone in a cafe and stared at his mobile.

"I'm sorry!" Merlin materialized in front of him, breathless. "I was leaving on time, but Freya—"

"Did you sleep with her?" Arthur blurted out.

"Wh-whatever gave you that idea?"

As the blush rose on Merlin's face, Arthur's heart sank.



A/N: Answers prompt_in_a_box prompt: "Did you sleep with her?" and merlin100's Change prompt.
ETA 09/14/10: Tried to come up with an optional epilogue/sequel, but no inspiration yet. Feel free to throw ideas at me or write your own optional epilogue/sequel.

*bursts into tears*

If you wanted to make a reader cry, you achieved your goal. T_T

This needs a big, literary band-aid.

Thank you! I had to take out 29 words. My writing notebook was riddled with striked out phrases and new insertions.

Oh, poor Arthur. Merlin should be ashamed of himself!
