The end of the party found Merlin and Freya sitting down on the breakroom couch together. Gwen paid them no mind as she cleaned up the decorations and leftover cake. “I want to go out with you soon,” Merlin said, “what does your schedule look like tonight?”
She smiled up at him. “I’m busy tonight, but I’m free tomorrow night.”
“Great! Want to go for coffee then to the cinema?”
“I’d love that, Merlin.”
He took her hand. “I’m so glad you kissed me.”
She blushed. “Me too. I can do it again, if you’d like.”
She reached her hand to his face and swept it back into his hair. Then she brought his head toward her while leaning up. When their lips finally met, Merlin felt a rush of warmth. Here he was, kissing the girl he’d been in love with for months. And it felt great!
Their moment was interrupted by an “Aww” uttered behind them. They broke apart to stare at Gwen, who’d clapped a hand over her mouth. She removed it and said, “Don’t mind me, I’ll just be going—” She dropped her armload of decorations and shimmied her way to the door and out.
“Now where were we?” Merlin mused. “Ah, yes. Right here.” He bent his head down again to capture her lips.
Neither of them left the room for a good long while.
