Merlin drabble  
Just a quickie tonight for Day 11 of consci_fan_mo. Hinted Uther/Gaius, set pre-series, when Uther hasn't long come to the throne. No prompyt but it's kind of aeron_lanart's fault because she got me into Uther/Gaius in the first place. ;-p
100 words, no more, no less:

Simple Gestures

“Gaius, you have been a wise advisor to me in these difficult times. A good king needs good advisors around him,” Uther said.

Gaius bowed and smiled in what he hoped was a modest manner.

“I’m honoured, sire, but my calling is to be a healer,” he replied.

Uther nodded and dismissed him.

Three days later, he presented Gaius with a beautiful but simple and sturdy circular bag.

“A court physician must have a good bag to transport his herbs and medicines,” he explained. Gaius smiled and bowed as he took it. He’d thank Uther properly when they were alone.

I am happy to accept full responsibility for opening your eyes to Uther/Gaius. *g*

Lovely drabble and that is just such a perfect gift. At least I know where Gaius got that bag now... :)

Nice. I like the subtle slash. It's fun sometimes too.
