ENJOY! (:

Chapter 1

The Man Has No Taste

"Milady?"

Morgana looked up into the mirror and saw Gwen standing at the door, holding a new, folded dress in her arms.

"King Uther has requested you use this for the dinner tonight." Gwen unrolled it and held it up for Morgana to see.

"Ugh, hideous, as usual. The man has no taste I tell you." Gwen suppressed a laugh. Morgana smiled.

"I'll leave it on your bed, milady."

"Thank you, Gwen." Gwen closed the door behind her. Morgana looked at her questioningly from the mirror.

"Milady-."

"Gwen, how many times have I told you?"

"Right. Morgana, have you heard from Merlin at all, lately?" Morgana smirked and turned around, facing Gwen.

"No, I haven't, actually. He should be at the dinner tonight though, he is Arthur's manservant after all."

"Right."

"Why do you ask?" Morgana said, smirking again.

"No reason, it's just I haven't heard from him in awhile and I miss him." Morgana looked at her.

"I mean, no, I don't miss him as in miss him miss him, I miss him as in I haven't spoken to him in awhile…" She said in a rush. Morgana held her hand up.

"It's okay. You like him. I understand." She said, smirking.

"No I don't! I mean, I like him, but not in that way, I mean I don't like him like more then a friend." Morgana laughed.

"It's okay, Gwen. You're secret is safe with me." Morgana stepped behind the rack that hid her from view and took of her clothes. Gwen laid the dress on top of it.

"Thank you." As Morgana began putting the dress on, the door burst open and she heard a man's voice that sounded strangely like…

"MERLIN! GET OUT!" Gwen yelled. Morgana almost fell in shock as she poked her head over the top to see Merlin covering his eyes.

"I'm so sorry, Morgana! It's just, Arthur wanted me to tell you he will be waiting for you at the hall tonight to escort you inside. He said don't be late." He sped out of the room, shutting the door behind him. Morgana burst out laughing.

"I'm so sorry! I should've locked the door!" Gwen said, almost crying in hysterics.

"It's fine, it's fine." Morgana choked out. She dressed quickly and Gwen did her hair. By the time she was done, night had fallen.

"Here, Gwen." Morgana gave her one of her dressed and Gwen stared at her in shock.

"Milady, I can't possibly-."

"You can, and you will. Or I will release you from my services. Now quick, get changed so we can see how adorable Merlin looks." She said, winking at Gwen. Gwen blushed and went behind the rack.

Yay, nay? Do tell.
