Tonight was a rarity; a rather unusual event for the night. He couldn't remember the last time he had done this for his duties often prevented him from indulging in such activities. But tonight, along with the knights and Merlin, he was going to the tavern. Now of course Arthur knew he could not get drunk, for anything could happen during the night and he'd rather not be sluggish in the morning. However, that did not mean he still couldn't have a few drinks and roll a few die. Why not? Tonight was about letting loose and enjoying the night with his brothers of heart. He had told Guinevère that he would return late, and she seemed to be in approval of him just easing his mind and not letting his kingly duties consume him tonight.
No documents to read or sign, no meetings to attend, no council matters to discuss. Just, a night out with the boys. It should prove to be . . . interesting, and the very least. Clad in his white shirt, trousers and boots, the air was warm enough for him to not need a coat. He did bring his sword along, just in case for one never knew when it was needed. Plus, he'd rather not be left defenseless. Even though they were just going to the tavern. He knew that blending in here was not as easy as it was in the outlying villages for they were in the city, and most everyone recognized him. Still, he didn't plan for his title to hinder the enjoyment of tonight. He was certain that most were already drunk by now and wouldn't alter their behavior for his sake, in his presence.
He was to meet Percival in the courtyard and Merlin and Leon would be joining them later. Knowing Gwaine, he was already there, and already drunk if he kept to his regular pattern. Seeing Percival already there, Arthur smiled as he quickly descended the stairs. "Percival," he greeted as he rolled up his sleeves, in preparation for where they were about to go. "Ready?" He further inquired. Tonight was not about titles or rank. The men were not knights, Merlin was not a servant, and Arthur was not a king. They were merely friends, all spending time together for such moments were far too infrequent. And Elyan's death was a devastating reminder of how short life can be; how their future is unpredictable and that anything could happen, especially in their line of duty. He did not wish to waste a moment, nor take it for granted. So tonight, was just about having fun and enjoying life.Setting: The Rising Sun tavern
