Morgana slept, and as she slept, she dreamed.
There was a house, a cute little house with the cliché white picket fence. She watched as two small children ran into the picture. Both had dark hair, as dark as hers. They were yelling with joy. Around the corner of the house came Merlin. It was clear he was chasing the children. He growled like a bear as he neared the running children.
“Mummy, mummy!” The children giggled as they ran closer to her. She knelt down and opened her arms wide. They ran into her arms and she embraced them tightly.
She could now see that one was a little boy and one was a little girl, about ages three and five. The girl had Merlin’s eyes and the boy, hers. She laughed then tickled the two as Merlin ran over. He looked a little older, but still had the same smile that had attracted her the first time she saw him.
“Ooh, can I join in?” he said.
“Nooo!” the children shrieked while still giggling.
Merlin knelt down and joined Morgana in tickling the two little ones. He began laughing as well and soon all four had fallen to the ground in a laughing hug.
It felt good. It felt oh so good. She was amazed at the love the poured through her. It was like the love she felt for Merlin had tripled and she knew it was right. She wanted to feel this way forever.
Slowly the scene faded away as she woke. She smiled as the feeling of overwhelming love stayed with her. Had it been a dream of the future? She hoped so.
Next to her, Merlin stirred and woke. “What are you smiling for?” he asked.
Morgana rolled into his arms. “I just had the best dream—and I’d love for it to be real.” She proceeded to tell him the dream.
“That’s a very good dream,” he agreed, holding her tighter. “What do you say we get to work on it now?”
“Yes, let’s.” She rolled on top of him and melded her lips to his. They soon forgot everything else.
