You couldn't help but giggle as you ran through the dark and vacant halls of the castle, late at night, and with your boyfriend in tow. As an aspiring herbalist and healer under the guidance of Gaius, you found yourself in the company of the young warlock almost at all times. Except when Arthur needed him for some stupid mundane task. So it was only a matter of time before the two of you would pair off, finding solace in each other and the secret you both shared. Having magic had its positives and its negatives.

Being girlfriend to Merlin after he asked you with magical wisps of gold on a secret date during a cool evening much like this one was definitely a positive. You giggled again as your smile widened at the thought of finally being alone with him again after a few days apart while he was busy being a servant to Arthur.

Merlin held your hand tightly in his as he pulled you back and into a small alleyway, the two of you pressed up against the walls, your faces just a breath away from each other. You gazed up into his eyes and smiled, your breaths coming out in small puffs.

"Well now Merlin, I didn't take you for the "sneaking into tight spaces with a girl" kind of guy."

Merlin smirked. "I have a few other secrets than magic up my sleeve."

You cocked your head to the side, smiling. "Tight spaces can definitely be romantic. How smart of you."

Merlin smiled wide, his eyes flickering to your lips for a moment. "As much as I'd like to say I planned this I can't take credit for the guards making their nightly rounds."

Sure enough as the two of you stood in silence, the sound of a pair of guards approaching echoed down the alleyway. You bit your lip to keep yourself from laughing at the thought of getting caught by them. The chances of knowing them were high and you kind of wanted to see the looks on their faces at seeing her and Merlin together like this.

That thought made you forget yourself for a moment and let out a squeak of laughter. Merlin's eyes got wide and he shushed you, placing a warm hand over your mouth.

"Wait. Shhh. Did you hear that?" One guard said.

The other sounded like he was turning, trying to hear want his partner heard. "Might be a mouse. Those things are everywhere."

"I guess it's time to hide the good cheese."

The both of you shook silently as a third pair of footsteps sounded down the hall. A voice soon followed.

"Everything alright gentleman?"

Merlin's eyes widened at hearing Arthur walking up to the guards. He could see him walk by and pause just a few meters away.

The sound of the guards standing to attention echoed. "Your Highness. Yes. We just thought we heard a mouse."

You couldn't help it. You snorted. That guard sounded so worried. Probably about his cheese getting taken. Merlin gave you a warning look but his eyes were smiling.
