Prompt: 387 Walking Away
Morgana stopped Merlin in the hallway. "Merlin, you didn't come back before I left Gaius' cottage last night. I was worried."
"I stayed to make sure everything was fine. Arthur needed my help. I'm sorry if I worried you." Merlin looked around. "I need to get on."
"Come to my room later. We need to talk." Morgana put her hand on his arm.
Merlin looked down at her hand. "My lady, that is unwise. If your father were to find out…"
"He won't if you are careful. You do know how to be careful. At least you used to." Morgana smiled. "I'll be waiting."
Merlin watched Morgana as she was walking away. He frowned. Whatever Morgana was up to he didn't want to be involved.
It was more than his job at stake. Merlin's duty was to protect Arthur.
He and Morgana had their moment and it passed. There was nothing left for them to talk about. Everything had been said and he didn't want to go back.
Merlin sighed and went back to his duties.
