Morgana stood on the docks with the other wives. She pulled her cloak closer.
"You shouldn't be out here, dear." Mrs Stout put her arm around her. "Not in your condition."
"I didn't think it was noticeable yet." Morgana put her arms around her middle.
"I've had five children. I know the signs." Mrs Stout looked up at the sky. "The storm is coming. I don't know if the boats will get back in time."
"They will." Morgana smiled. "They're on the horizon. Just there."
Mrs. Stout craned her neck to see where Morgana was looking. "I wonder if they found Sid's troller. Isn't that why your husband went out there?"
"Yes. He went in case there were injuries." Morgana pulled up her hood as the rain drops started to fall. "Are they singing?"
"That only means one thing. They found the troller and now they're all drunk." Mrs. Stout laughed.
Morgana sighed. "Lovely."
"That depends on how drunk they are." Mrs. Stout laughed.
The boats got closer and a rousing sea shanty filled the air between the raindrops.
Morgana blushed. "Oh my…"
Mrs. Stout laughed. "They're very drunk it seems."
Merlin waved as the boats got closer to the shore.
"You have your hands full with him. He can barely stand up." Mrs. Stout patted Morgana's shoulder.
"He's a light weight. He just has to get a whiff of ale and he's under the table." Morgana smiled. "He will regret it in the morning. One way or the other."
