Author's Notes: I had a lot of fun with this one. :)
Merlin walked into the cafeteria, uncertain about where to sit. He looked around and finally saw Morgana waving at him from her usual table. “Merlin! Over here!”
Merlin sat down, still uncertain. “Um, hi.”
“Merlin, these are my friends. Everyone, wave when I say your name. First there’s Arthur, my half-brother.”
“Yo,” said a blond boy two seats down.
“Hi, Merlin,” said a pretty girl next to Arthur.
“Hey there,” he said.
A dark-haired boy across from Arthur waved.
“Call me Percy,” said the huge boy next to Lance.
“Everyone, this is Merlin, my boyfriend.”
“Hi, guys,” Merlin said, waving. “Thanks for letting me sit with you.”
“Merlin?” said a voice behind him.
Merlin turned to find Gwaine. “Oh hey, Gwaine. Um, Morgana? Can he sit here with us?”
“Sure! Any friend of yours is welcome,” she replied.
“Cool, thanks,” Gwaine said. He plopped down across from Merlin.
“Gwaine, do you know everyone here?” Morgana asked him.
“More or less,” Gwaine replied, before chomping down on his hamburger.
And with that, everyone started eating. There were snatches of conversations here and there, but for the most part, they all just ate. When they were done, they put their trays away and disbanded to go to their different classes.
Merlin looked at Morgana, uncertain.
“What is it, Merlin?” she asked.
“Um, may walk you to class?”
Morgana laughed while Merlin cringed. “Oh Merlin, you’re so old-fashioned. I love it.” Merlin lifted up his head. “You don’t need my permission to walk me to class. Of course you can walk me to class.”
Merlin grinned and hurried over. He took her hand and together they walked to Morgana’s next class. Once there, Morgana leaned close and kissed him on the cheek.
Merlin floated to his next class.
