    Summary

    A mission takes Eggsy to Egypt and chasing a man through the desert. A strange storm rises up and when he comes to, a gorgeous man is tending to him in a tent. The half Scottish, half Bedouin man doesn't understand half of what Eggsy references, how could he? Weren't exactly cellphones in 1902. As Eggsy heals from his injuries and travels with the tribe, and gets to know Merlin, he starts to wonder, maybe he has finally found where he belongs.

    this was just so damn good and healing to read


    “Her name was Jacinda, and she was beautiful, and kind, and was gifted with the horses. His name was Hamish McLullich, and he was a right pain in the arse.”
    Eggsy barked out a laugh. Merlin’s arms wrapped around him as he told the story, a proper love story, a should be a movie love story, and Eggsy listened rapt. When it was done, Merlin’s cheek rested on Eggsy’s head. “You believe in love like that?” Eggsy whispered.
    “Of course, I saw it, did I not?”
    “No, I mean for you?”
    “No,” Merlin admitted. “I hadn’t. Not with what I would ask for a partner.”
    “Hadn’t.” Eggsy couldn’t shift, couldn’t look at him. “Not don’t.” Those were very different words.

    And a part of him liked that they were moving slowly. It was a new thing for him - he was pretty sure he was being romanced. Shown his value. He still hadn’t managed to tell Merlin what home was like for him, why he fell through time so worn down in body and soul. But he knew Merlin was trying to heal that.

    “My nose was already not good, now you will flinch to look at me,” Merlin replied but he was smiling a little, Eggsy knew he was teasing. “You know I think you are the most handsome man, in this century and the next,” Eggsy said.

    “I dislike him,” Merlin said. “You are not rough. You are kind, and clever, and loyal, and utterly magnificent.”
    Eggsy would have protested, he was used to denying it when anyone said something good about him. Deflected. But he looked at Merlin. “Yeah, I matter don’t I?”
    “More than I can ever say.”
    Eggsy looked at Merlin and pressed a gentle kiss to his jaw. “Rebkah called me your beloved.” A kiss to the other side. “Am I?”
    “Yes,” Merlin whispered. “If you want.”
    Eggsy kissed his lips, mindful of Merlin’s nose. “I want, beloved.”

    “No because you are not trash I slake my thirst on and forget the next day. You are my heart, my dreams, my everything. I will nae fuck you. I will make love with you this night. Give my body to you, worship you, show you my promise to adore your for as long as there is breath in my lungs.”

    But Merlin’s arms just tightened around him. “You are not allowed to go back to your time.”
    “What?”
    “You are not beloved then. Honoured for the soul you carry. They do not deserve you. Allah sent you here, to show you your value, to bring you love. The love you should have always had, and that will not be taken away from you.”

    I don’t know, but I can’t risk that. I can’t choose us over the world. And if you were awake and looked at me, I would.” Eggsy wiped a tear away. “I love you, Salim. I’m going to love you forever. You said one night, during those perfect talks of ours, you would be one of the world’s forgotten men, like most. You won’t be, not ever.” Eggsy brushed his lips against Merlin’s. Barely there. “You’re going to be remembered into the next century. No one will ever have me again. Staying yours, until I die.” He couldn’t say goodbye, the word stuck in his throat. “Allah watch over him,” he prayed. He didn’t really believe but Merlin did, so fuck it, why not try.

    “Salim,” Eggsy shook his head. “This can’t be real. You can’t have left your whole life for me.”
    “Eggsy, my gift, you are my life, I just followed where it went.”
    Eggsy didn’t cry, but he turned and pressed his face into Merlin’s neck, breathed in that dry desert scent that Merlin carried. “I missed you every day, with every breath.”

    Merlin was getting all slick, and he had that light on his eyes. Eggsy bit his lip. “Oi, stop playing with Bors, I need to talk to you about something important. In our rooms. For a few hours.”
    “Playing?” Bors snapped. “I have him on the ropes.”
    “You really don’t,” Eggsy called back. “You can pick whatever you want from the drawer,” he added as extra incentive.
    “Holy shit,” Roxy and Harry both said, when Merlin snapped and went on full attack. There was just a flurry as his sword and dagger flew, Bors was pushed back again and again. He was disarmed in three minutes, Merlin held his sword to the man’s throat.
