Author's Notes: :)
It was cute at first, the way Merlin was always asking Morgana if she would like some herbal tea or her feet rubbed. But by the time her third month of pregnancy rolled around, she was well shod of it. If he asked one more time if she’d like a warm bath, a cuddle on the sofa or her favorite takeout again, she was probably going to say something hurtful. At least they worked in separate places during the day and she could ignore his phone calls.
Getting to the end of the day was exhausting. No one had told her that pregnancy took so much out of you. Not even the pregnancy books had clued her in. So at the end of the day, she was ready to go home and enjoy a warm bath and some herbal tea. Hopefully she’d beat Merlin home so she could take care of these things herself.
No such luck. Merlin’s car was already parked in front of the house by the time she got home. Sighing, she got out of her car and prepared for the onslaught.
Merlin opened the door to her with a question on his lips. Before he could open his mouth, Morgana spoke up, “Whatever you’re going to ask, the answer is no!” Brushing by his confused and hurt face, she set her bag down and turned to face him. Because however irritated she was, he deserved an explanation.
“Merlin, ever since we got pregnant, you’ve been handling me with kid gloves. And while I appreciate all you’ve done for me, you’ve got to know that pregnancy isn’t a terminal illness. Most of the things you’ve done for me I could’ve done for myself. Please try to understand that I don’t need your constant attention, love.”
Merlin nodded. “I didn’t know you felt that way. I was just trying to pamper you because you deserve it.”
She took his hands. “Thank you. But form now on I’ll ask for your help when I need it, okay?”
“Now I’m off to enjoy a nice, warm bath.” She gave him a quick kiss and was off, headed toward the bathroom.
Merlin smiled. He was lucky to have a wife who spoke her mind, even when it was uncomfortable for him.
