Author's Notes: This is a continuation of my last drabble.
Merlin walked out of his last class and to his locker with great relief. They’d just had a test that he’d actually had to study for and he’d been so nervous about it. But it turned out that he’d had nothing to worry about after all. The test had been pretty easy.
Morgana followed Merlin out of class with an ulterior motive. She’d noticed he’d been acting a little differently around her. And sometimes he and Gwen whispered to each other then looked at her. That meant one thing to her—that he liked her and had told Gwen. She bristled a little at being caught out of the loop but she’d make up for that mistake right now.
“Merlin,” she said, and put on her intimidating face.
He turned to look at her and noticed the look on her face. “Morgana . . ?”
She advanced on him and he backed up at a quick pace. His back hit the lockers as she put her hands on either side of his shoulders. “Hi.”
“I have a question for you, and please answer it honestly.”
“Do you like me?”
He immediately flushed pink. “I—I . . .”
“Ohhhhh, I see. But you didn’t answer. Do. You. Like. Me?”
Merlin exhaled and hung his head. “You found out.” He looked back up at her. “But how did you find out?”
She dropped her hands. “Merlin, you’re not so great at hiding your secrets.”
“So, what are you going to do about it?”
“Do about it?”
“Oh, you hadn’t thought that far, had you?”
“Well then.” She took his hand. “Walk me home?”
A smile spread across his face. “Yeah.”
Hand-in-hand they opened their lockers and pulled out the books they’d need for home. After loading up their backpacks, they walked past a smiling Gwen out the door toward Morgana’s house.
