Who: Merlin, Nimue, Gaius and Melora What: Hey, you have a kid! When: Shortly after Gaius arrived Warnings: Only people freaking out
Merlin was studying at Nimue's apartment. Nimue was reading in a chair across the room. It was one of those nice quiet times. Mordred was still at school in an advanced class with Headmaster Dumbledore. He was just finishing up his last bit of work when there was a knock on the door.
Merlin looked up at the door and then over at Nimue, as if asking if she was expecting anyone. When she looked as confused as he did he got up to answer the door.
Gaius was actually not too horribly nervous, surprisingly. He thought he would be freaking out, but it really was just his mum and dad, just younger, nothing to be scared of. He knocked on the door, fidgeting a little. He was glad Melora was there. As much as she was adapt at saying the wrong thing at the right time, it was nice to have his best friend backing him up.
His dad opened the door and he was so young. He might be younger than Gaius was. Crap, okay, that was weird. "Uh, hi, er, Merlin," it was so weird to not call him Dad, "Is M-Nimue here, too?" Oh, maybe this was not so good an idea. Maybe he could just pretend he was a door to door salesman and run off and do this some other time... like when he wasn't OLDER THAN HIS DAD.
