Merlin turned off the lights in the living room as Morgana brought the bowl of popcorn in. They sat next to each other on the sofa and sat the bowl between them. Merlin had already popped the DVD in the player and it was just waiting for him to press “play.” He did so, and the opening scene of the scary movie he’d picked flashed on the screen.
He and Morgana watched as the hero and heroine made mistake after mistake, leading them to the halfway point of the movie where the monster jumped out and scared both characters and Morgana. She jumped over the empty bowl of popcorn and landed in Merlin’s lap. He chuckled.
“Don’t laugh at me!” she yelled.
“Sorry,” he replied, grinning.
“You did that on purpose.”
“Did what on purpose?”
“You deliberately chose a scary movie so I’d jump into your arms.”
“Yes, and it totally worked, didn’t it?”
She sit him in the shoulder. “You’re such a jerk.”
“Would a jerk do this?” He leaned close to her, pressing their lips together gently.
She broke away. “I’m still mad at you,” she replied, fighting a grin.
“You like that? I’ve got more for you where that came from.” He wound his arms around her back and drew her close, kissing her with zeal.
She responded by straddling his lap and grabbed his shoulders, winding her arms around his head. Soon movie night was completely forgotten as they lost themselves in each other.
