Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Arthur/Merlin pre-slash
Word Count/Rating: 1160 words/Gen
Summary: Merlin is the worst manservant Arthur has ever had. The wonder is that he keeps him around at all.
Disclaimer: This incarnation of Merlin belongs to the BBC and folks at Shine. There would be even more dressing (and undressing) if they were mine.
A/N: A brief chronicling of Arthur's denial. Set between episodes 1x02 and 1x03. Massive thanks to the wonderful sarcasticchick for the beta, cheerleading, whipcracking, and all-around awesomeness.
Merlin really was the worst manservant he'd ever had.
