The months go by slowly and Arthur finds that he is in love with Merlin.
Merlin feels the same and wants to show him his love for him, to confess.
What better way than to do it at Christmas?
Obe instructs that this Christmas was going to be a grand one.
So he invites many guests and decorates the castle, Merlin then decorates Arthur’s room wonderfully and ties the famous mistletoe on a string that hangs near the door.
Arthur sees him do it and blushes. ‘This could be it, I could confess like that.’ He thinks.
‘This is it, I’m going to confess to him like this…’ He thinks to himself.
Christmas soon comes and the two wake up and do their usual tasks.
Arthur moves over to the door when he’s done and hesitantly looks up and gulps.
“What is it?” Merlin asks, noticing Arthur’s nervousness.
“Nothing.” He blushes and rushes out.
That evening Arthur finds himself walking back into his room, he sighs and suddenly feels hands wrap around him.
“Arthur….I have something to say.” Merlin says from behind him.
“Hm?” Arthur slowly turns around, facing him.
Merlin looks at him, blushing and hesitantly points to the milestone.
Arthur smiles slightly. “I have…something to say.”
“Me too…” Merlin grins.
“You first.” Arthur chuckles.
Merlin blinks and looks at Arthur shyly before bringing him into a gentle kiss. “I love you.” He says against Arthur’s lips.
The king gasps and kisses back deeply. “I love you too.”
