---

It is freezing.

No, it is worse than freezing this morning. It is so cold that even he, Arthur Pendragon, is shivering. Curled in bed, waiting for the serving-maid to finish stoking the fire, he briefly contemplates putting on his chain mail. Or his cloak. Or both? Anything to add a little weight and warmth. The maidservant leaves. Arthur puts one foot on the stone floor.

Arthur gets right back into bed, thank you very much.

-

"Gwen, do you not have anything warmer?"

"I am fine, my lady. Really! I was - I left in a hurry this morning, that is all."

"Please, take something of mine. This wrap! Take this wrap?"

"My lady, I - thank you, my lady, but I would only dirty it. Truly..."

“Very well.”

But Morgana does not sound convinced. A moment later, Arthur looks up from practising sword feints. They are gone; walking back to the castle. Two shapes, one in a far thinner cloak.

-

As he staggers under the weight of a bundle of logs, Merlin doubts the truth of his master’s words. According to Arthur, Morgana asked him to send a bundle of wood to Gwen. Merlin suspects Morgana had nothing to do with it.

end.
