Author's Notes: :)
Merlin watched at the deadly predator closed in on its prey. The tiny creature had no chance, in his opinion. It was, as yet, unaware of the danger behind it. The predator readied itself for its attack, flattening itself to the ground and moving its haunches in preparation to spring.
The sleek, black creature finally sprung, reaching its target with perfect timing. It scooped up its prey and swept it into its waiting mouth, enjoying the taste of victory quite literally.
Morgana entered the room. Seeing Merlin and the cat, she asked the former, “What are you doing?”
“Watching Blackie take care of our roach problem single-handedly,” he replied.
“That’s disgusting, but effective,” she said, reaching down to pet Blackie. The cat purred and curled up on the floor, enjoying the aftermath of her meal.
