Word Count: 565
Prompt: 318. Naughty
Merlin and Morgana drove Elena to the train station early the next morning. Elena was heading to London to make a fresh start. Merlin stayed back at the car to let Morgana and Elena say their final goodbyes.
Elena hugged Morgana. “Please try to stay out of trouble.”
“Didn't you hear? I'm a lady good and proper.” Morgana hugged her back and chuckled.
“Good and naughty you mean.” Elena grinned. “Proper ladies don't drink until they dance on tables. I will never forget that as long as I live. Speaking of naughty, I’ll be back for your wedding to that delicious Merlin.”
“I refuse to marry him when I can just shack up with him and shag him rotten daily.” Morgana glanced over her shoulder at Merlin. “Make that twice daily.”
“Ugh Naughty you!” Elena laughed. “Don't let Viviane boss you around. Remind her to stay out of the kitchen. She burns water. I really wish you had found someone else.”
“I will be fine and so will the tea shop.” Morgana reassured her. “Now grab your bags and head off to the platform before your train leaves you behind.”
Elena grabbed her suitcase handle. “I will call as soon as I get there. My lady.” Elena laughed. She waved to Merlin. “Bye Merlin.”
Merlin smiled and waved back.
“God just marry him.” Elena kissed Morgana's cheek and went inside the train station.
Morgana walked back to the car. “I'm going to miss her.”
“She'll be fine.” Merlin opened the car door for Morgana. “She’ll find someone and be so happy that she'll forget all about us.”
“She had better not forget us. I'm going to need her someday.” Morgana looked Merlin up and down before she got in the car. “Sooner rather than later.”
Merlin scowled as Morgana got in the car. He shut the door and shrugged before going around to the drivers side. He had no idea what Morgana was implying but he had a feeling that she had already decided something for the both of them.
Merlin started the car. “Where next?”
“My place.” Morgana leaned close and whispered in his ear. “I'm going to shag you until we are too exhausted to move.”
“You know I love it when your naughty.” Merlin winked at her. “Very naughty.”
“Drive Merlin.” Morgana kissed his cheek.
Arthur looked at the pile of work on Merlin’s desk. He had expected Merlin two hours ago but there was still no sign of him. He picked up his phone and dialed Morgana.
“What?” Morgana's impatient answered.
“You don't happen to have Merlin there with you?”
“What if I do?”
“Tell him to get his arse to work or iI'm going to fire him.”
Morgana sighed. “Arthur, he's unconscious. He's not capable of going anywhere.”
“Did he hit his head?” Arthur
“No. He’s exhausted from shagging me.”
Arthur rolled his eyes. “Ugh Morgana thats …. Disgusting! Wake him up and tell him what i said. The next time you want to exhaust him wait until he finishes his work.”
“Whatever Arthur.” The line went dead.
Arthur went back to his office. He was going to have to have a talk with Merlin about shirking his duties at work so he can be with Morgana.
Arthur thought that Merlin and Morgana could at least be more discreet. At least, he and Gwen made it to work on time.
