Arthur and Gwen pulled up in front of the Dragons Egg. The tea shop was dark but there was a light on in the back.
“Are you sure we were supposed to meet them here?” Gwen asked.
“That's what Merlin said. His car is over there.” Arthur nodded towards the car parked closer to the corner. “Come on. They're probably in the back getting dessert from the shop.”
Arthur got out and went around to open Gwens door. They held hands and went up to the door of the shop. Inside the shop, it sounded like things were being knocked over. They looked at each other and Arthur tried the door.
“What is that noise?” Gwen asked. “It sounds like someone is ransacking the place.”
“The door is open.” Arthur pushed open the door. “Stay here.” He went into the back where the noise was coming from. “Morgana!? Merlin!?”
“Bloody hell! Didn't you lock the door?” Morgana's voice came from the storage cupboard in the back.
“I thought I did.” Merlin answered.
Something else fell over and then there was giggling.
“Ow!” Merlin hissed.
“Are you two alright in there?” Arthur opened the door and looked in then slammed it shut. “I'm going to wait out front.”
“Well? What's going on?” Gwen asked Arthur when he came back into the front of the shop.
“They have been shagging.” Arthur sat down at the front table. “I will never be able to unsee that, Guinevere. Merlin had his pants…. And Morgana was….. I think I'm going to be ill.” Arthur covered his face with his hands.
Gwen burst out laughing. “Arthur, we knew they've been shagging for a while now.”
“It's not funny Guinevere. That's my sister.” Arthur put his hands on the table. “Merlin was…” Arthur shook his head.
“That doesn't explain the noise.” Gwen leaned against Arthurs arm.
“I think that last bit was Merlin falling over.” Arthur sighed.
Gwen giggled. “He fell over?”
Morgana came from the back room. She glared at Arthur. “You're early.”
Merlin came out and stood in the doorway. His face was red and he didn't seem to be able to look Arthur in the face.
Arthur glared at them both.
“We thought someone was ransacking the place from all the noise.” Gwen laughed. “Sorry.”
“What the devil were you doing back there? Knocking things off off shelves? We thought the place was being looted by thieves.” Arthur shook his head. “Couldn't you wait until later for that?”
“Arthur, I’m sure you and Gwen make plenty of noise when you shag too.” Morgana smirked. “It's always better when its noisy. Right Merlin?”
Merlin bit his lip and decided to keep his mouth shut. He didn't like the look on Arthur's face.
“Let's get to Gaius flat. I have a feeling this is going to be a long unpleasant night.” Arthur stood up and waited for Gwen to stand up.
“We’ll follow you. I need to get the cake from the cooler in the kitchen.” Morgana turned to go back the way she came.
Arthur and Gwen left and went to their car.
“Morgana, I swear I thought I had locked the door.” Merlin said.
“Serves him right just barging in like that.” Morgana kissed him. “We’ll have more fun later.” She went to get the cake.
Arthur sat in the car with Gwen and watched as Merlin and Morgana locked up and went to Merlin’s car. “Those two are a pair.”
“Arthur, they're in love. Same as us.” Gwen kissed him on the cheek. “Morgana has a point. Shagging is better when it noisy.”
“Hrmph.” Arthur started the engine.
