link I'll Be Mary, 你 Be Joseph - PG - Fluff - Warnings: Not really! Just some little!Gwen and little!Arthur A/N:
This is the last fic I wrote for the ag-fics 圣诞节 2012 Fic Exchange. This one was in response to lillypad9090's prompt which was: A/G as kids as Mary and Joseph in the school nativity! This little fic has not been edited, so any mistakes are entirely my fault.
Excitement and nervousness can be felt in the air as little children prepare for Albion Primary School's annual School Nativity play, but not as much as little 12 年 old Arthur Pendragon.
His father demanded that this 年 he make an effort in getting involved with school activities and events. When, to be honest, Arthur preferred watching the play amongst his 老友记 as they made bets on who would be the first to muck up their lines; which one of them inevitably did, making Arthur very happy indeed when he won 20 pounds.
He may also have been watching a certain particular girl, with amazing brown eyes and curly hair to match, but he would never admit that to anyone. Not even to himself.
But this time his hand was forced, so now here he was standing on 最佳, 返回页首 off a 粪便, 凳子 while Leon's mum concentrated hard on placing pins on his costume for altering. As well as telling him off for not remaining still. But it was hard; Arthur was never one for standing still.
Then he notices a pair of brown eyes surveying him with a disapproving look. He knew that Gwen was far from impressed when she learnt who would be playing Joseph to her Mary. But what was she to do, she couldn't let the school down so she grinned and beared it. But Arthur knew when Gwen was frustrated. He may even admit to doing certain things to annoy her just to see that utter look of infuriation of her face. Just like any typical 12 年 old boy did to a girl he secretly has a crush on.
"Right, Honey. You're all done," Mrs Young smiled at Arthur, before putting away the final pin away. "Just quickly take the costume off and hand it back to me for the final alterations."
So Arthur did as he was told and went to the boy's bathroom to change, unfortunately what he didn't expect was that two of his best mates, Percy and Gwaine were in there. Oh crap!
For 你 see, Arthur hadn't exactly told his mates that he was in the play, let alone that he was playing Joseph, the male lead.
"Oh look what we have here, Percy," Gwaine pointed out to a very tall 12 年 old who was washing his hands. He looked up and what he saw caused a huge laugh to escape him, which also resulted from a death stare from Arthur.
"Ummm is there something 你 forgot to tell us mate?" Percy ventured to ask Arthur who was dressed as a shepherd with old daggy rope and 茶 towel tied on his head. Meanwhile, Gwaine is struggling not to laugh.
"What, Arthur? We can't hear you."
"I 说 that I'm playing Joseph in the school Nativity Play!" Arthur shouts, face having turned bright red, providing his best mates with the perfect opportunity to tease him. Arthur lets them have their fun, thinking that if he does they will 移动 on and he could get changed.
What he did not expect was that not only would they tease him; they decided to throw their uneaten lunch at it, staining it quite badly and there was only 6 hours before the play.
Now here he was, sitting feeling quite ashamed (which was quite a strange feeling for Arthur) as the drama teacher, Miss Brady began her ten 分钟 lecture on Arthur's disrespect and disregard for his costume. She also 说 some other things, but Arthur stopped paying attention then as he saw once again Gwen was looking at him. And there was something about her look that struck him, made him want to fix things. But how? , he thought.
"I'm sorry, Miss. Maybe we could wash it 或者 my father could buy another one." Arthur tried his best to apologize sincerely.
"Oh we have a spare costume in an event one goes missing," She went on to say, causing Arthur to think why on earth did she get so mad then? "But that is not the point, Arthur Pendragon. Playing Joseph in our annual Nativity play is a huge honour for anyone is this school and since 你 were 给 this role, 你 have been behaving completely unacceptable, 展示 a total disrespect to learning your lines, listening to me and now ruining your costume." Oh no, she is going to get someone else to play him and my father will hear and get mad "But seeing as we have no time, I'll give 你 one 更多 chance." Phew!
Arthur is making his way down for final rehearsal before the big event when he spots a very angry Gwen walking towards him.
"I know that 你 would rather be playing footie with your mates 或者 watching TV, but the whole school and community is going to be watching this and you're turning it into a mockery…" Gwen began tellling him and Arthur tried to interrupt her rant 由 saying her name, but she continued on.
"… I thought 你 were going to take this seriously, but 你 just like the rest of the jocks, a big jerk. With no concern for anyone but yourself." Gwen finished finally, then realizing what she had 说 and whom she had 说 it to, looked down and began playing with her hands.
Arthur looked at her, 说 her name to get her attention. It worked.
"Guinevere, I'm sorry about my behaviour the past month. It is unacceptable and I hope 你 can forgive me," He surprised her 由 saying and Gwen has no idea what to say.
"Well that depends," She finally spoke up, "Are 你 going to take it seriously now?" Her eyes filled with hope.
"Of course," He smiles at her, before walking closer to her and extending his arm for her to take, "After all, 你 are gonna to need a fine and strong husband to help 你 to Bethlehem."
And Gwen takes his arm gladly.
It turns out that Arthur is a wonderful actor and Gwen 心 beats a thousand per 分钟 as the audience is applauding them. Gwen tipped her head towards Arthur, catching his eyes and he whispered to her, "How did I do?"
"I guess 你 will do," Gwen tells him jokingly, before placing a warm 吻乐队（Kiss） on his lips. The whole audience claps even 更多 then.
And Arthur thinks this is the best Nativity play ever!
