Author's Notes: Sorry, once again not beta’d

Merlin took a deep breath and went over to the boys he knew were in his class. It was all exciting and new but he’d immediately taken to the blond boy with the blue eyes who had laughed the loudest and who sounded a bit posh when he spoke.

“Hi, I’m Merlin. Can I play with you?” He had already decided that the breaks were the best thing about school and he wanted to make as much of that time as he could before they all had to go inside again and sit still for endless hours.

The blond boy stepped up to him and looked him up and down. “No. You’re ugly.”

Merlin stared and didn’t know what to say. He wasn’t ugly! Mam always said how gorgeous he was! Just this morning, before she had brought him here, she had called him her ‘gorgeous little man’.

The other boys started laughing and the blond one shoved past him, nearly knocking him off balance, and they all started chasing each other again.

While Merlin still stood there, rooted to the spot, trying to bite back the tears, a chubby little boy shyly came closer. He held two plastic dinosaurs in his hands and then held one out to Merlin. “They won’t let me play with them either. Said I’m too fat.” The boy looked sad as he adjusted his glasses. “But maybe we can play with the dinosaurs?”

Merlin smiled and then nodded. Who cared about stupid mean blond boys when you could play dinosaurs?

“Merlin? Percy?” They heard the voice of their teacher a while later. “It’s time to go inside again.”

Laughing, they both picked up the plastic toys, brushed the dirt off their school uniforms and ran back to the class room.

Awww! It's mini-Mercival Bless! Kids can be so cruel and so sweet.

This month will be the death of me.

Don't! Merlin's made a new friend today!

I find the kidsfic are especially good at doing just that.

I can see how this might tug a little extra on your heartstrings. Take care.

Children can be so mean to one another. It's a good thing they're resilient.

Yup, they can. Good thing that Percy wasn't disheartened and approached Merlin.

That was sweet. I liked how Percy was able to make Merlin feel better and for them to be friends.

Since the others won't let them play, they can play on their own. They don't need them :D

Awwwwwwwwww! Ok my love for these two isn't really a secret so...

Ok... I've just been struck with a drabble idea... Would you be okay if I wrote more in that universe?? Pretty please?

Of course! Go ahead! I'm honoured that I wrote something that inspired you to write!
