Title: Finally
Rating: PG-13
Pairing/s: Arthur/Gwen
Character/s: Arthur, Gwen, Merlin
Warnings: Emotional Infidelity
Word Count: 100
Prompt: 248 We need to talk

Arthur wakes with a start, heart racing. The dream was intense, eye opening. He glances down at his aching erection, then over at Gwen snoring softly beside him. His cock immediately softens. They haven’t had sex in months but he’d pled overwork and fatigue.

They’re not to blame.

In his dream he and Merlin had been watching a fiery sunset. Arthur took his hand. Merlin’s breathless “Finally” made Arthur laugh as he leaned in to kiss his best friend. He’d never known such happiness.

Arthur wants to be that happy. With Merlin.

Arthur waits. Gwen deserves to know the truth.
