Merlin winced. It sounded like Ellie was on one of her crying jags again. He peered into the living room from the kitchen and saw Morgana dancing with the baby in her arms. “Have you tried music?” he asked her.
“She’s not responding to her usual,” Morgana replied.
“Then try something different. Very different.”
The next thing Merlin heard was different. It was Elvis, and Morgana was singing along. “Don’t be cruel . . .”
But Ellie wasn’t crying anymore. “Keep it up, love!” Merlin said.
Morgana kept singing to the King’s music and bouncing Ellie. Soon the little girl was giggling. Merlin walked in and started singing with Morgana. Together they soon had Ellie sleeping in her crib.
They both wandered into the kitchen where Merlin began preparing dinner. “I never would have thought Elvis would work,” Morgana said.
“Yeah, who knew?” Merlin added. “File that away for future use.”
