Merlin woke suddenly from a dream. He reached out beside him to find Morgana missing. He wondered where she was for a moment before realizing the place she had to be. Reluctantly, he rose from the bed and wrapped his robe around himself. He padded from the room to another, down the hall.

There, standing over the crib in the moonlight, was Morgana. She turned when he pushed wide the already open door. He watched her open her mouth before deciding not to speak and close it again. Encouraged, he walked over to her and took her hand. “What are you doing awake?” he whispered.

“I couldn’t sleep,” she whispered back, “so I thought I should come in here and check on her.”

“Morgana, she’s fine. Look at her.” They both looked down into the crib, where their daughter slept peacefully.

“But what if she needs me? How will I know?”

Merlin smiled. “I’m pretty sure she’ll cry.”

“But—”

He tugged on her hand. “Come on. You both need the renewal that sleep brings. She’ll be fine. She always is. She has you for a mother.”

Morgana melted. “Thank you, love. I think I can sleep now.”

They closed the door gently behind them as they made their way back to their bed. They settled in and Merlin rolled over to kiss Morgana softly. “Goodnight, my love.”

“Goodnight. And thanks.”

“Anytime.”
