Title: Unusual Behaviour

Pairings: Merlin/Arthur Uther/Ygraine
Warnings: suspected dub-con
Disclaimer: I do not own this version of Merlin, nor am I making any profit from it.
Prompt: First posted at the kink meme for the prompt: Arthur/Merlin, Uther protects the servants of Camelot from being taken advantage of. When he realizes that Arthur is bedding his manservant, he investigates to make sure that Merlin is a wholly willing party.
Arthur never uses that tone with anyone but his manservant. Uther can hear them all the way up the hallway.
"..shine my boots, order the horses for first light tomorrow, fix that buckle on my hauberk and be in my bed by change of watch or I'll have you put in the stocks, Merlin. I mean it. You are taking entirely too long..."
They have passed the door without seeing him and turned the corner.
The boy is devoted to Arthur, Uther knows. He looks at him... He looks at him all the time. But not with fear, surely? He's a willful, disobedient...
Uther shakes his head. Arthur wouldn't compel the boy, surely. He values him highly - too highly, Uther has often thought. Treats him as something special. As... a possession?
It's a ridiculous thought, but Uther can't shake it. He returns to his reading without conviction.
