“I had that dream again,” Morgana said while standing at the kitchen sink. They had been getting breakfast ready when she suddenly stopped there, staring into nothing.
Merlin whipped his head around to look at her. “The one you started having after your father separated us in high school?”
“Yes.” Tears started running down her cheeks. She thought she’d never see him again after her father had whisked her away to a boarding school. She wasn’t even allowed to write to him by any means, because he monitored all that. It was a very lonely and sad time for her.
Merlin came up to her then, and held her in his arms. “That was long ago. And he’s out of our lives now. For good.”
“I know, but it still scares me to think about it.”
Merlin pulled back a bit and lifted her head so their eyes met. “Listen to me, Morgana. He made his choices and we made ours. Nothing’s ever going to tear us apart again. Nothing. And by the way, I love you.”
Morgana threw her arms around him. “I know. And thank you for calming me down. Again. You always know what to say.”
“I will help you calm down as many times as you need it. You are worth it.” He bent down and kissed her sweetly, just to make a point of it.
