Merlin stood at the front window, watching the snow come down. It was several centimeters deep and soon would be up the bottom of their car’s tires. From the kitchen wafted the smell of Morgana’s favorite beverage, hot chocolate.
Footsteps sounded behind him, then the sound of a tray being set down on their coffee table. An arm inched around his waist and her head leaned against his shoulder. “Beautiful, isn’t it?” Morgana asked.
“Oh it’s beautiful all right. And I’m just going to have to shovel it in the morning,” he replied.
She lifted her head and stared at him. “You have a way of spoiling the moment, you know?”
“Just being realistic.”
She left his side but returned a moment later with two mugs. “Here, maybe this will improve your mood.”
He took the mug from her and continued watching the snow fall. She did have a point—he had spoiled the moment. Here they were together, married at last after so many obstacles trying to keep them apart. He really should just enjoy this gorgeous moment they had together. The name of a popular Christmas tune floated through his head and he snickered.
“What’s so funny?”
“Me. Just thinking about how silly I’ve been and ‘Let it Snow’ played through my head.”
Morgana grinned. She started humming the song and he joined her. Soon they were singing it at the top of their lungs. They ended and started laughing, holding onto each other.
“I guess the hot chocolate did improve my mood.” He smiled down at her.
“Good.” She leaned up to give him a kiss.
The snow kept falling softly as they stood there at the window, wrapped up in each other.
