Author's Notes: ;)
Merlin was leaning against the kitchen counter, sipping his coffee, when Morgana entered the room. He noted he robe was untied and her hair still disheveled. He wanted to smile but knew this would probably raise Morgana’s ire, and that’s the last thing either of them needed. Instead he asked, “Did you enjoy yourself last night?”
She looked up at him and grunted then shuffled toward the coffee machine.
Merlin intercepted her. “Let me get that for you.” Morgana just grunted again. Merlin knew it would take at least one cup of coffee for Morgana to utter more than a grunt. She had been out at Gwen’s hen night and hadn’t gotten back until the wee hours.
Once she had her cup in hand, Merlin directed her to the table, where they both sat. He talked on and on about what they were going to do for Arthur’s stag that night, until Morgana finished her cup.
“I had a great night,” she said.
“Good. That’s what it’s all about,” Merlin replied.
“I especially enjoyed the male strippers. I ran out of notes to give.”
Merlin spat his mouthful of coffee out over the table. Luckily he hadn’t hit Morgana, but still. “Strippers? You didn’t tell me there would be strippers there!” When he looked up at her, she was laughing.
“There weren’t. Gwen isn’t that kind of girl, you know that. I just wanted to see the look on your face when I said that, and it was so worth it!”
Merlin grinned. “You got me there.” He started laughing too. Soon both were in hysterics over the whole thing.
When they finally calmed down, he took her hand. “I’m glad you had a good time.”
“Thanks, I really did. Now would you fetch me the paracetamol? I’ve got the most vicious headache going.”
Merlin smiled and stood up to head for the bathroom cabinet. He really was glad Morgana had had a good time, but he was even more relieved that there had been no strippers.
