Author's Notes: :)
Merlin and Morgana were sitting on the sofa, watching a movie. They had a bucket of popcorn between them and everything was peaceful. Morgana saw something on the floor move, so she turned her head to get a better look.
Suddenly she screamed and jumped into Merlin’s lap, the popcorn flying everywhere.
“Why did you scream like that?” he asked her, shaking his head so popcorn would clear off of it.
“I saw a mouse,” Morgana replied, pointing to the corner where she saw it.
“Great, a mouse.” Merlin got up and walked over to the corner Morgana had pointed to. When he got close enough, the mouse ran directly in front of him. “I guess we need to go out and get traps and stuff.”
“Make sure they’re humane.”
“You’re worried about a little mouse that scared you to death?” She nodded her head. “All right, humane traps it is. In the morning.”
“Thank you, Merlin.” Morgana looked around her. “I guess we’d better clean this up.”
Merlin sighed but came over to help her. When they finished, he flopped onto the sofa next to her.
She took his hand. “Thanks for being my big, strong protector.” She gave him a sweet, lingering kiss.
“You’re welcome,” he replied, kissing her back. Soon they forgot all about the mouse.
