Chilly Boulder, Friday afternoon
After the Support Services meeting in the park, Dinah called Tony to meet her at Chilly Boulder, and wandered over to wait for him outside.

The wind was kicking up; maybe another storm coming in.

"Hey," Tony smiled at her. "How's your day going?"

"Not terrible. Kinda good." Dinah smiled up at him and got up from the bench. "Support Services was interesting. CPR demonstration." She opened the door and said, "After you, m'sieur." There was stuff she wanted to talk about, but didn't know how to start; but Tony was good for that. She'd get there eventually.

"Thank you," he said with a small bow. He went up to the counter and pondered the options. "Double mint, double chocolate," he requested.

"Chocolate chocolate-chip. Double," Dinah requested. That kind of day. "Weird conversation with Merlin last night. I think I finally get that thing about him working for Arthur as his Duty with a capital D forever and forever."

"Really?" Tony wondered if Merlin had told Dinah about his crush on Arthur. "What'd he say?"

"You know how he's all, 'it's different there', and 'duty comes first', and I don't know, something he said made me ask him if he's on-call all the time, every day. And he said pretty much, yeah. Nobody else is. The knights, kind of, but he's not one of them." Dinah accepted her cone and put down a five to pay for it and Tony's. "So he's Arthur's Secret Service guy. For his best friend."

Tony frowned. "I thought he was a manservant. Not the taking-the-bullet guy."

"He doesn't see it that way." Dinah gave her cone a lick. "The washing socks and getting supplies, that's only part of his job, I think. He'd kill to protect Arthur. He'd take a bullet for him. The rest's just details." She sighed. "I explained Secret Service to him, and he said that was a bit accurate."

Tony picked up his ice cream and walked over to a table by the window. "That's hardcore," he said.

"Yeah." Subdued, Dinah joined him at the table, looking outside as she nibbled on her ice cream. "It worries me. For when they go back and Arthur's dad is still king. And after that." She looked back anxiously at Tony. "He's good at magic, isn't he? Really good?"

"He is," Tony nodded. "But... yeah, that's intense."

"He should have something he believes in like that. Not just Arthur, but working for him." Dinah fiddled with her cone. "But people who believe in things, they're at risk." Her expression darkened. "Especially if they don't have enough people looking out for them."

"He has us," Tony said. "And Arthur." He picked up a chunk of chocolate mint that had fallen on the table. "Do you think Arthur looks out for him?"

"Oh sure." Dinah nodded, confident in that. "I mean, there's all the insults, but that's because Merlin is his manservant. And he just thinks he's funny. Nobody else would be allowed, you know? Like Leto. He wouldn't let him pick on Merlin at all."

"Good," Tony said. "If Arthur wasn't on his side, that'd be really shitty."
