The Cottage by the Sea
Morgana stood on the shore. The wind whipped through her long dark hair but she didn't seem to care. The smell of rain was getting stronger. She could tell the storm was getting closer.
Her eyes searched the horizon. There was no sign of his small boat and the waves were getting higher and rougher. She began to fear that he wouldnt come home at all.
"Where are you, Merlin? I told you not to go out on the water today. Why didnt you listen?"
Finally, she saw the boat with Merlin come over a swell of waves. He was rowing as hard as he could to get to shore.
Morgana bit her lip. She could see him struggling against the waves.
She looked up at the sky as the first drops of rain came down. She didnt care she would stand in that spot until he was in her arms again. Safe and sound.
It seemed like ages before Merlin pulled the small boat up on the shore above the tidal line. He picked up his net full of fish and started to walk towards Morgana.
"You should be inside. It's pouring already." Merlin took her by the hand and pulled her into the mouth of a cave just under the cliff. "I told you that I'd be back before the storm hit."
"I wasn't sure." Morgana was soaked through and shivering. "We should get to the cottage. We both need to get warm and dry."
Merlin nodded. "Come. Watch your step. The path will be slippery from the rain."
Merlin guided her to a narrow trail up the side of the cliff face. They climbed slowly to the top. The steep path leveled off and became a well worn track leading to a small white washed cottage.
Merlin pulled her along as he nearly ran to get out of the rain. He opened the door and put his catch down on the floor next to the door. "I'll light the fire. Get out of those wet things."
Morgana shed her clothes into a pile by the door. She pulled a quilt of the narrow bed and wrapped it around her. She sat by the fire and waited as Merlin stired the coals into a blaze.
Merlin looked over. "Is there room for me in there?"
Morgana nodded. "But not in those clothes."
Merlin shed his clothes and threw them on top of her wet things.
Morgana held open a corner of the quilt for him to get inside with her.
"Feeling better now?" Merlin whispered in her ear.
Morgana kissed him softly. "So much better."
