Merlin walked Morgana to her door. She opened it partway and made to go inside, but stopped when he put a hand on her wrist. So she turned back to him and looked into his eyes quizzically. “What is it?”

“I-I had a good time tonight,” he explained.

She smiled and tucked a stray lock of hair behind her ear. “Me too.”

“Can I . . . I mean . . . could I . . .” Their faces came closer together almost as if they’d been magnetized.

Morgana’s eyes began closing on their own before her mind caught up to her. “Oh!” She backed away, into the door. “I-I—sorry.” She slid through the opening, slammed the door shut and locked it. She leaned on it and covered her face in her hands, utterly confused.

Merlin stood there for a moment, shocked into immobility. Their date had gone really well. It had been their third and everything felt right on every level. He felt sure she was the one, but hadn’t wanted to scare her away by telling her that too early. It seemed a simple kiss had scared her before he could even get to that.

But he didn’t want to give up yet. He thought she’d felt it too, that sense of rightness, of connection. Determined, he turned to the door and knocked on it. “Morgana. Morgana, please open the door.”

“I’m sorry, Merlin, so sorry.” Her voice was muffled but audible.

“What do you have to be sorry about?”

There was silence for a long moment, then “I got scared.”

“Of what?”

“Of . . . how I feel.”

He sucked in a deep breath. “Why?”

“Because I think I could really love you.”

This time he was silent for a long moment. “Really?”

“Oh yes.”

He started laughing. It quickly grew hysterical. One of Morgana’s neighbors opened his door, looked out and gave Merlin a dirty look. He quickly closed it after.

“What’s so funny?” She sounded hurt.

He stopped abruptly. “I’m sorry. It’s just that I was thinking exactly the same thing.”

Another long moment. “You were?”

“Yes.”

The lock clicked open. The door opened widely and Morgana appeared. She seized his face in her hands to bring her lips to his. After a long, involved kiss, she broke away to beam at him.
“Would you like to come in?”

“Hell yes.”

She grabbed his arm, yanked him in and slammed the door behind him.
