Rating: G
Pairing/s: N/A
Character/s: Arthur, Merlin
Summary: Merlin ponders over keeping his secret of actual importance.
Warnings: N/A
Word Count: 305
Prompt: #53 Pretending
Author's Notes: Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] inspired_being for continuing to beta my drabbles.  This one is set during episode 4.12 “The Sword in the Stone: Part 1.”  I wanted to try a shorter piece than I have done before, so I just tackled Merlin’s point of view on hiding his magical abilities. Arthur’s initial quote in this fic is directly from the show, so not my words.
