Author's Notes: Continued from last week.
Merlin knocked on the door of her flat. He shuffled his feet while he waited for her to open the door. He had no idea why he was so nervous. It wasn’t as if they hadn’t already shared intimate moments together. But this was their first official date and he was very awkward on dates.
The door opened then, and Freya stood before him. Damn, but she was beautiful!! She took his breath away and his nervousness ratcheted up a notch. “Hi,” he said.
“Hey. Ready to go?”
“All right.” He held out his arm, which she took. “The place I have in mind is actually just around the corner from here.”
She closed the door. “Camelot Coffee?”
“I love that place!”
Before long they were at the door. He opened it for her and they went inside and up to the counter, where they ordered. “Would you like a slice of their pie?” Merlin asked. “It’s to die for.”
“I know! And yes, I would like a slice.”
Soon they were sitting at a table with their coffee and pie. They ate and drank in silence for a few minutes until Freya said, “You’ve got real boyfriend potential.”
Merlin nearly choked on his pie, but managed to swallow it all right. “What do you mean?”
“I mean, you’re already a great kisser, but tonight you offered me your arm and opened the door for me, really gentlemanly things.”
“Why thank you.” He grinned.
She put her hand over his. “Now, tell me all the stuff about you that I don’t know yet, including some embarrassing stories about when you were a kid.”
They continued to talk about themselves for a while, until Merlin looked at his watch and noticed they were going to be late for the cinema. He took her hand and together they hurried to the theater, where they made it just in time for the movie. They held hands the entire time, and when it was finished, they returned to Freya’s place where they talked and kissed, then talked and kissed some more.
