Title: The Kings Quest (Chapter 9)
Summary: Merlin has ideas but Morgana turns it around on him.
Prompt: 401 Hickey
Merlin and Morgana had been to a reception for the newly found knights. They had escaped as soon as they could manage it.
There were several long speeches. It seemed Sir Leon, Sir Elyan, and Sir Gwaine were very long winded. Even Arthur made a dreadfully long speech.
Morgana pulled her heels off as she walked into her flat. She tossed them through the open bedroom door. "Could that have lasted any longer?"
Merlin closed the door and dropped into a chair. "Yes. Be grateful it didn't. Gwen looked like she was about to slap Arthur if he didn't stop talking."
"She should have." Morgana sighed. "You're the only one that even knows what happened in Camelot and you didn't make a speech."
"I wasn't asked." Merlin watched Morgana through half closed eyes.
Morgana noticed the look on his face. "Help me with my zip." Morgana turned her back to him.
Merlin muttered a few words and his eyes glowed golden. The zipper slid down.
Morgana looked over her shoulder as the dress hit the floor. "You need to teach me that one."
"Nope." Merlin reached out and pulled her down into his lap.
Morgana squeaked in surprise.
Merlin nibbled at her neck as he pushed her hair off her shoulder.
Morgana giggled. "Merlin, you're going to leave a mark."
"Hmmm." Merlin lifted her into her arms as he stood up.
"We haven't eaten yet. Don't you want some tea?" Morgana kicked her feet as Merlin carried her to the bedroom. She really didn't care about food at that moment.
"Nope." Merlin nipped at her neck. He glared at her lacy undies. "All I want is you….. naked." He tossed her into the middle of the bed.
"What are you going to do with me, Merlin?" Morgana smiled seductively.
"I intend on marking my territory." Merlin pulled his shirt over his head and joined her.
Morgana pushed him onto his back and straddled him. "You are my territory."
Merlin just grinned.
The next morning Arthur scowled at Merlin as he walked into the study. "Where did you and Morgana disappear to yesterday? Gwen looked around and you two were gone."
"Morgana and I had plans." Merlin sat in the chair on the other side of the desk. "Very important plans."
"I see." Arthur wiggled his finger at Merlin. "Did those plans include her leaving hickeys all over your neck?"
"Yes, they did." Merlin grinned.
"I see." Arthur nodded. "Does Morgana have some too?"
"Yes, she does." Merlin frowned. "Why are you asking?"
Arthur shrugged. "No reason. It's just that those are going to look really good on Morgana's official portrait."
