Arthur, Merlin and Morgana sat on the sofa. They’d agreed to watch the new episode of Doctor Who together, and so far the show was exciting. After fifteen minutes, Arthur realized he needed to use the bathroom, so he excused himself to do so.
Merlin’s hand moved to the remote the same time Morgana’s did. The instant their hands touched, they turned their heads to look at each other. Neither knew the other had had a crush on the other since their university days. Merlin hadn’t wanted to break his friend’s trust by dating his sister. And Morgana hadn’t wanted to get between her brother and his best friend. Neither suspected that this would be the night to change all that.
Merlin picked up Morgana’s hand to kiss the back of it. In that moment, he read in her eyes the same longing he’d had for her. He kept hold of her hand to pull her closer to press their lips together. After that brief kiss, he pulled away to gauge her reaction. Her eyes sparkled at him and she nodded. This time she leaned forward and their lips met again, more solid this time. They continued like this, kiss, pause, kiss, pause until they heard the bathroom door open.
Arthur stepped back into the room to find his best friend and his sister staring at each other in wonder. The sight was enough to prompt him to ask: “What’d I miss?”
