Merlin gazed at Morgana from across the room as she danced in her brother’s arms. He remembered fondly to earlier in the afternoon, when they stood across from each other in his mother’s country church. He couldn’t take his eyes off her then and couldn’t now. If he had that problem for the rest of his life, he was fine with that. She was more than worth it. She was perfect.
Just before the song ended, he rushed over to take her into his arms before anyone else could claim her. “Hello again, Mrs. Emrys,” he whispered in her ear.
“Hello again, Mr. Emrys,” she replied, smiling.
“Are you aware of how perfect you look tonight?”
She giggled. “Why, no. But I think you’re going to tell me.”
“Your eyes are bright, your lips so pink, your skin so fair . . . and your dress sets it all off so well.” He leaned closer to whisper again, “I can’t wait to get it off of you.”
“Why Mr. Emrys, I’m shocked.”
“Don’t be. It’s how I feel.”
She leaned closer to him and whispered, “I can’t wait for you to get it off me, either.”
He stopped in his tracks and looked down into her eyes. Then he slowly lowered his head to kiss her, long and sweet. They parted just after the applause started. As they turned to face the small crowd, he said, “Want to get out of here?”
“You know I do.”
After the crowd quieted again, Merlin spoke up. “Thank you all for participating in the best day of our lives so far.” There were some whistles. “Morgana and I are going to retire for the night, but you all can stay and enjoys the party, for as long as it lasts.”
With that, he picked her up and into his arms, to carry her to their car. They didn’t look back as the crowd showered them with handfuls of birdseed.
