Characters: Merlin, Morgana
Summary: Pregnant Morgana has a craving in the middle of the night.
Author's note: I apologize for the screwed-up header, I'm having to do this from memory on my iPad. My computer is screwed and I still wanted to post something for this week.
Merlin woke to the shaking of his shoulder. "Merlin, wake up!"
"Hmm?" he replied, rolling over to face Morgana.
"I need chocolate right now!"
"Right now?" He glanced at the clock. "At 2:30 in the morning?"
He should have known better than to ask that question. At four months into her pregnancy, Morgana craved all sorts of things, from potatoes to bananas and all things in between, or so it seemed.
"Yes, right now! Go get me some."
Fortunately this was something they kept in the house and he didn't have to hit the nearest convenient store at this hour. He'd already had to do that for other things.
He slowly rolled over and made his way out of bed and to the kitchen. He opened the drawer where they kept the chocolate bars and found nothing. He wanted to smack his head. Of course Morgana must have been craving these things all day and had gone through them all without him noticing.
He returned to the bedroom. "You ate all the chocolate bars. Will chocolate chips do?"
Her eyes lit up. "Yes! Bring me a cup full."
Merlin sighed and turned back to the kitchen. He got a mug out of the cupboard and he chocolate chips from the pantry. He filled the mug with the chips and put them away. Back in the bedroom, he handed the mug to his wife and settled back into bed.
"Thank you, Merlin. I love you." He felt her press a kiss to his head."
"I love you too," he replied. Somewhere inside he knew the end result to this pregnancy would be worth it, but he'd love it more if he could just sleep through the night.
