Merlin sat down next to Morgana on the couch, two mugs in his hands. He handed her one then settled back into the couch. “So, the year is fading. Have you made any resolutions for next year?”
She looked at him over the brim of her mug. “You know I have.”
“Care to share them with me?”
“Of course.” She crossed her legs and sat the mug down on the table. “But only if you share yours with me.”
“I wouldn’t have it any other way, love.”
Morgana grinned. “One is to be more compassionate to others.”
Merlin stifled his chuckle. This was a hard thing for her, he knew. “That’s definitely achievable for you.”
“Thank you. And now you.”
“I’ve resolved to keep Arthur on his toes.”
“Don’t you already do that?”
This time, Merlin laughed. “Well, it wasn’t my job before, was it? Now I’ll do it for money.”
Morgana giggled. He was absolutely right. “One of my other resolutions is to love you more than I do now.”
Merlin’s eyebrow rose. “Oh really? And how do you plan on doing that?”
She took the mug from his hand and sat it down on the table. “Like this.” She straddled his lap, took his face in her hands, and pressed their lips together.
When they came up for air, Merlin said, “Oh, I see.”
She took his lip in her teeth and said, “Stop talking.”
There was no talking for a long while after that.
