Merlin took Morgana’s hand in his and laid his other one low on her back. She placed her other hand on his shoulder and took a deep breath. They had waited so long for this moment that now it was here, she was unsure how to proceed.
“Are you ready for this, Mrs. Emrys?” Merlin asked, looking into her eyes.
She smiled, all her nervousness vanishing in that instant. “I am.”
“Good.” He stepped forward as she stepped back, and they were on their way. Their first dance as a married couple.
As they circled the floor, Merlin looked steadily into her eyes. His confidence buoyed her up. They looked effortless as they glided about, garnering the envy of many sitting around the floor. There were many “oohs” and “ahhs” as they twirled here and there.
As the song ended and a new one began, Merlin pulled Morgana closer. “You were perfect.”
She ducked her head. “Thank you.”
He lifted her chin to look into her eyes. “Of course. I love you.”
“I love you too.” She looked around to see other couples joining them on the dance floor. “Shall we continue?”
He laughed. “Definitely. But another couple of hours and you’re all mine.”
She winked. “I can’t wait.”
And with that, he once again swept her away in dance.
