Merlin opened the flat’s door for Morgana then closed it behind them both. They turned around to see small piles of boxes everywhere. “Oh yeah,” Morgana said, “I forgot about this.”
Merlin grinned. “It’s time for our next adventure—moving in.”
Morgana dropped her bags. “I forget—why didn’t we unpack before we left?”
“Because we were going crazy with wedding plans.”
Merlin set his bag down. “Don’t worry, love, I think the bed’s set up, at least.” He wandered over to the master bedroom door and peered inside. “Yup, the bed’s set up. You want to take it for a test drive?”
“As tempting as that is, I think we’d probably better unpack a few boxes first. Especially in the kitchen.”
“Are you hungry?”
“I’m getting there.”
Merlin laughed. “All right. Let’s hope Gwen and Arthur filled the fridge and cupboards like they said they would. I mean, I trust Gwen, but Arthur?”
Morgana opened the fridge. “Yes! Thank you, Gwen.”
Merlin looked over her shoulder. “Great! So how about a couple of omelets, and oh, look, wine!”
“Sounds good.” She cozied up to him and ran her finger down his chest. “Then we can make the bed and try it out.”
“Mm.” Merlin leaned down to press their lips together.
A shiver ran through Morgana and she almost forgot she was hungry. She broke away, laughing. “Down, boy. More of that later.”
Merlin pouted. “Okay. Let’s get those omelets made.”
Soon they were sipping wine and devouring their veggie omelets. And when they finished, Morgana led the way to the bedroom, where the bed most definitely got broken in.
