Arthur wraps his arm around Merlin drawing him close. Merlin smells like sweat and blood and it should be revolting but Arthur breathes in his scent like it’s perfume. “Close your eyes,” he whispers against Merlin’s forehead, kissing him sweetly. He places the cool metal against Merlin’s temple.
Bang.

“Hurry up Merlin, we have to keep moving”
“It’s too late Arthur”
“Don’t be an idiot they haven’t caught us yet”
Arthur reaches towards Merlin, trying to grab his hand but Merlin steps away. He pulls up his shirtsleeve revealing the bloody rip in his arm. His face is blandly accepting.
“You know what needs to be done.”
“Shut up Merlin, just shut up! We can get you to a doctor. We can...”
“Come on Arthur, it’s too late for that.”
“No! There has to be something.”
“Do it Arthur”
“Don’t be stupid”
“Just hurry up and do it, you know you have to.”
“Damn it Merlin I can’t... I can’t do this without you”
“And I can’t be one of those filthy things. Arthur if you ever cared about me, if I ever meant anything to you at all you’ll do this for me.”
There is no reply.
