Author's Notes: :)
Morgana looked at herself in the full-length mirror they had in their bedroom. Yup, there it was—the baby bump. She was officially showing her pregnancy. She flounced out of the bedroom to the living room to show Merlin, who was sitting on the sofa with his laptop.
“Look, I’m showing!” She said, parading in front of him.
“Showing what?” Merlin asked.
“Baby bump!” She turned to the side and curved her hand in front of her belly.
“I don’t know how I missed that,” Merlin said, picking up his phone.
“What’s that for?”
“To document your growth. Do you want to?”
“Fantastic idea! Do it,” said Morgana, turning to the side to pose again.
Merlin held up his phone and took a few shots. “Wow.” He put his phone down and stared at her.
“What is it?”
“You look positively ethereal.”
A slow smile spread over her face. “Really?”
“Yeah, you’re positively glowing. I know they say pregnant women glow, but I thought that was ridiculous. But you are.” He got up and embraced her.
“No, thank you. For wanting to have children with me.” He drew back to look into her eyes. “This is going to be an amazing journey and I’m so glad I get to go through it with you.”
Morgana felt her eyes tear up. “Me too.”
She leaned up to give him a sweet kiss. Then they simply held each other for a long while, basking in the tender moment.
