Dinner over, Morgana sat on the sofa cigarette in one had and a Bacardi and coke in the other T.V. on , her eyes were feeling rather heavy, all that screen work she thought to herself as she drifted off.
Morgause relieved her of her drink and cigarette and covered her with the fleecy blanket she had taken out of the toy box and slipped a hot water bottle next to her to keep her cosy. Merlin looked up from the floor where he was surrounded by wrapping paper and asked. “Oh! is Morgs a tad tired give her a shove I fancy a game of charades.”
“No” relied Morgause “she’s exhausted, she had to work really hard sorting that frozen virus it took her ages” Stepping away from her sleeping sister she took a drag of the cigarette, this made her cough “goodness knows what she sees in these things” she said throwing it into the fire, she then took a large swig of the Bacardi, “That’s better” she said sitting down next to Merlin, “let’s play”.


Morgana was fast be asleep as Morgause and Merlin played charades. She was exhausted but her brain was not relaxed enough to sleep peacefully so she drifted into a dream.
She found herself standing on some decking by a pond surrounded by twinkling fairy lights. It was winter and a tad chilly, so she made her way towards what looked like a cosy lodge type building.

Inside it was warm and cosy. Morgarna curled herself up in a huge armchair by the fire. A handsome waiter asked if he could get her anything. She asked him for a hot chocolateand Brandy.

a warm cosy fire
chocolate to kill the chill
and warm the spirit.

Now Morgana fell into a deep sleep, content and happy. In her mind she was in a cosy retreat safe from any jobs Merlin might have up his sleeve or any tricks her mischievous sister might be about to play on her. This was bliss the perfect place to rest.


“Get off me ” Someone was shaking Morgana she opened her eyes expecting to see the cosy surroundings she had fallen asleep in. Instead Merlin and Morgause were looking at her.
“Come on sleepyhead you’ve had a couple of hours kip. We’re off to the pub for a lock in and you’re coming too.” Merlin smiled, “You can’t sleep all Christmas!”
“Are we going in your car” asked Margarna sleepily. “No we are not” replied Merlin “I’ve only just got it fixed after you trashed it for me!”
Reluctantly Morgana dragged her mind back to the reality she was living in at the moment, put on some lippy, lit a cigarette and said, “okay let’s get this party started! “

It was as cold inside the building as it was outside but it was so dark. Morgarna and Morgause followed the wall along a passage, finally they saw a door ajar on their right with was a light flooding out.
As they reached the door they felt warmth and heard voices. The voices were two young men sitting infront of a bank of four computer screens.
“Well guys what have you done? ” asked Morgause as they crept up behind them!
The lads spun round looking really scared.
“How have you two managed to freeze time?” Asked Morgarna.
Both lads looked sheepish, “We didn’t mean to it just sort of happened.”


“Luckily for you Morgarna here here knows all about these computer thingies…. Unlike me with my head still stuck in the dark ages!”
The two lads looked at eachother then at the two sisters and said ” Go on then have the driving seat…we are shot!”
Morgarna slipped on her *Mi Mu Gloves and became one with the machine.


After about an hour Morgarna found the nasty little virus hidden in the software. “Gotcha” she muttered. “Hey Morgause it’s the work of D’eath you know that time traveling miscreant. I killed him, down in Sussex a couple of months ago, real time that is, and this little time stoper obviously hid a virus which has been sitting here waiting for a chance to freeze time.
Her words were met with silence…. Morgause and the boys had been at the wacky bacci and the emptied the bottle of she’d bought with her for sustainence!


Outside things were fast moving in the right direction time was moving again the seasons changed and soon everything was back to normal.
Carrying Morgause and their winter coats Morgarna was muttering expletives as she looked for the Anomaly. The two guys were asking them to stay but Morgarna needed a drink …a large one!
There was the Anomaly…. They jumped


As they landed in the lab, they came face to face with a beautiful toy box, very designer, full of blankets, ice lolly molds, a jar of hot chocolate and a cuddly teddy.
“Oh! Well” the girls said as one, as they gazed at the Christmas tree and decorations. “It’s the toy chest” they both squealed together!
“Yes” shouted Merlin from the kitchen where he was knee deep in turkey and sprouts, “Merry Christmas”

“OMG!” Morgause screamed “this is bloody freezing, what the f##k is going on. I’m wet, Morgarna where are you?”
“I am over here Sis out on the ice, the sexy looking seagull !” Morgarna shouted back.
Silence….. Morgause looked around and noticed for the first time that she was covered in white feathers! “What is going on , am I a swan? Morgarna what’s happening?”
“Yes Sis occasionally we shape shift and we never get any warning….it can be a pain! It usually helps us do whatever we are here for. Don’t complain about being a swan you’ve got lots of down to keep you warm…I am a chilly gull with spindly legs!” Morgarna shifted from foot to foot.
“Mummm! Hisssed Morgause I see what you mean …I think I suit these white feathers .”
Morgarna took a sharp intake of breath and took off to do a reccy.

“Do you see the problem here” Morgarna asked Morgause as she joined her high above the lake in the cold winter sky. The graceful swan and the soaring gull.
“Not really Sis, this is the perfect winter scene isn’t it?” Morgause replied.
“Yes indeed Sis if it were not for the fact we are the only creatures moving, nothing down there is stirring, not a bird, not an animal, not even a blade of grass. Infact everything is frozen.” Morgarna looked at Morgause.

The two sisters surveyed the frozen earth below and in the distance snowy peaks covered in snow and everything was still, no movement no life nothing.


“Do you think it’s a spell ” Morgause asked Morgarna as they circled above the frozen landscape. Morgarna shook her head …”I really am not sure Sis, it’s just so odd……time has frozen “
Then they spotted a building heavily camouflaged to blend in with the snow.
As they landed by the building they both morphed from Swan and Seagull into their human selves and they were relieved to find they were well dressed for the weather.


The two witches approached the building, their boots scrunching on the snow. The held their breath as the opened the door!

“Woa! What on earth are these doing here” Morgarna asked Morgause.They had landed just down from Camalot and were startled to find a string of fairy lights and two decorative deer the type found in 21st century shopping malls certainly not in the court of King Arthur.
“Don’t look at me like that Sis it’s nothing to do with me, I hold my hands up to the iPhone but not this!” Morgause said with a self-righteous pout!
Morgarna looked her sister in the eye and a blue light passed between them , “okay I believe you ” Morgarna said.
Just then the Anomaly appeared, “Quick Sis help me get these decorations through the anomaly Merlin can deal with them!”
The two of them heaved the decorative reindeer and string of lights into the anomaly.
Of a sudden the things looked more like Arthurian England than seconds before.
Morgarna and Morgause made their way towards the castle…in the dark.


As they entered the great hall the two sisters felt a huge feeling of homecoming wash over them both. The bustle the warmth and the familiar faces, they both disguised themselves to be accepted yet invisible.

“You see if any of the servants saw the decorations and I check this drunken lot up here stuffing their faces! ” Morgause said picking up a goblet of wine and heading for the top table. “Will do” replied Morgarna as she took an empty wooden platter and headed towards the kitchen.
Hours later while the castle slept Morgarna and Morgause stood in the dell and looked up to their former home. The place they had lived their original life before they had become immortal and their travels and adventures had begun.
“I still miss these times even after all we have experienced this is home” Morgarna said to her sister. Who nodded in agreement… Then fell flat on her bottom!
“What happened there Morga, too much wine” giggled Morgarna.
” I tripped on this stone, hang on it’s not a stone it’s a Christmas decoration …. With a note attached “
“What does it say” Morgarna asked.
Morgause rolled her eyes , “it says Merlin was here”
“Well sis that solves the mystery of the battery operated flashing reindeer in Camelot”
Just then the Anomaly arrived, “Jump” shouted Morgarna “and bring the note and bauble with you!”
They girls both landed back at the lab amidst a host of Christmas finery and Merlin holding out two large drink to them !

“Hey Merlin, babes, what are these, thingy…err stamps doing in the lab. ” Morgarna called out, “Are they important or are they for the bin?”
“No they are not for the bin Morgarna, don’t touch them” a startled Merlin called back. ” I thought I’d start a collection of them especially the rare ones”
Morgarna laughed and winked at her sister and replied. ” But they are almost obsolete babes”
Merlin strode into the Lab from the kitchen, “what better time to have a rare collection when they are a rarity? “
“These are not worth much babes ” Morgause mimicked her sister.
“No those are not but they will be, plus I thought we could pick up the rare ones on our travels” replied Merlin “we could make a killing really” Merlin smiled and poured himself a coffee.
“By “We” he means me and you Morga if you hang around long enough”
Morgause thought about this and said , ” Merls might just be on to something here … Some of these stamps are worth a fortune, especially first editions, those with mistakes and some that they made a few of. When were the first stamps made. “
Merlin picked up his phone and asked it, “Google when where the first adhesive stamps made” Google replied “In May 1840 the world’s first adhesive postage stamps were distributed. With an elegant engraving of the young Queen Victoria (whose 21st birthday was celebrated that month), the Penny Black was an instant success.”
Merlin then asked who had the idea. Google replied *”Sir Rowland Hill, KCB, FRS” “Well ladies we have a plan, we could make a fortune out of this! Who’s doing the first jump?”
Morgarna and Morgause lifted their Bacardi’s and coke and as one said “You! Babes you”

K.L Caley’s #writephoto: Shopping.

As the sun rose Morgarna had a good idea, from what Mother Stone had told her, what was possibly happening. So as the first glorious rays of dawn spread across the open landscape, of the as now untouched by the worst ravages of man and what is laughingly called civilization.
Morgarna reached across and ran her hand across Mother Stone’s surface and whispered, “Please don’t worry my friend who ever this is, I will find them and retrieve the object, but don’t worry whatever it is it is useless with out power or Google…..Don’t worry Mother by the time you wake again all will be sorted and I will be gone. Until we next meet ” Morgarna ran her hand across the stone and felt the knowledge of millennia wash through her.


As the settlement came into view Morgarna removed all her modern jewelry and from her leather bag she put on her celtic pieces.
No one took much notice of her as she had decided to cast a spell over herself to make her blend in and look familiar to everyone.
Making a few enquiries she discovered that the healer in the village was a woman, her name was Morgause.


It took all Morgarna’s composure to hide her surprise! but hide it she did.
So it was after a day of trading herbs and trinkets that Morgarna found herself knocking on Morgause’s door.


The two women looked at eachother across the threshold. One as dark as night the other as pale as day.
Morgarna broke the silence…. “Well hello *sister”

“So what’s your game Sis” Morgarna snapped.
Morgause replied in Gaelic, but Morgarna was having none of that! “Cut the crap Hun it’s me not some sniveling peasant!” What have you brought here and why?”
“Me Sis, really” Morgause fained innocence. Morgarna lifted her hand and Morgause flew across the room and hit the wall.
“That’s not very sisterly Morgarna, you’ve still got a temper I see” said Morgause .
Morgarna raised her hand again and Morgause spat out, “it’s an iPhone 15.and it out of power now so there’s no harm!” Morgarna took a deep breath and and replied, ” but there is and you know it” Morgarna snapped. “So where is it now, you do realise it’s contaminating the time lines and Mother Stone is not sleeping soundly? “


Later, after retrieving the iPhone from an old Oak in the woods behind the hut. Morgarna and Morgause stood in a glade waiting for the Anomaly to arrive.
As it did Morgarna embraced her sister bade her fairwell and took the leap. Morgause laughed and took one too.

Merlin was in the soap and shampoo aisle minding his own business! Morgana had left him a list and suggested he made a start on the Christmas shopping. Suddenly with a woosh and a scream Morgarna and Morgause landed in the trolley with a bang! “Merl babe, how are you hanging” screeched Morgause.

Well they visited the drinks and snacks aisle next, and this is how they left it.

*Morgause was the eldest daughter of Vivienne – who was also the mother of Morgana, thus making Morgause and Morgana maternal half-sisters. She was a skilled warrior, a powerful sorceress and a High Priestess of the Old Religion.

“This is the spot” Morgana said to herself, and rather pleasant rather pleasant it is too. The blue flowers, the old fence and trees hiding the five mile an hour road sign.
Looking at her phone she could see she only had a few minutes to wait. Running her hand down her green velvet robe with hand embroidered Gailic design on the bodice she smiled, she loved the thought of going way back in time to when magic and soucery reined supreme.
What could go wrong she smiled throwing her leather bag of herbs over shoulder, quickly checking the laces on her Doc Martin boots she looked out for the Anomaly.
Merlin was watching his screen, he could see Morgarna standing in the flowers waiting for the Anomaly.
“Are you okay Hun” , he asked , Morgarna, who turned and smiled at the screen, “are you seriously saying you care?” Merlin laughed “maybe baby” he replied.
Just then the Anomaly arrived.
Merlin watched Morgarna jump. Then he went to the kitchen to get himself a cup of coffee. …..

“Oh! Wow I love it here ” Morgarna and it is dusk. My favourite time of day” Delving into bag she pulled out her red velvet cloak and wrapped it around herself.


As it got darker Morgana sat by the stones and waited for them to talk to her. Feeling totally relaxed she watched the stars roll across the night sky. She was totally at one with the sky the earth and the stones.
It was around midnight when the stones began to speak.
“Morgarna we have missed you you are so rarely here.”
“I know mother stone, it pains me to be far from you but you know it is my destiny to travel” Morgarna looked at the stones and smiled. “Why have you summoned me here mother ” There was a silence as mother stone thought and then she spoke, “Someone from the future has travelled here and defied the the ancient laws by bringing things from another era here long before it’s time. They are trying to corrupt my innocent people Morgarna, can you and Merlin help?”

The pair landed back in the Lab, Morgana still giggling and Merlin hanging on to his box of skulls.
“What are you going to do with those old bones Hun” Morgana asked mockingly.
” None of your business” was Merlin’s terse reply as he headed off to his room Morgarna’s laugh ringing in his ears. As he entered his room he heard the click and smelt the smoke as Morgana lit up another cigarette and poured herself a Bacardi and Coke, shutting his door he thought “she’s an alcoholic chain smoker ” shaking his head he heard her shouting back,in his head “Yes and proud of it’


After they had finished dinner Morgana waved her hand casually and the table cleared itself and the dishes put themselves into the dishwasher.
“What are you playing at” asked Merlin looking a tad surprised. “The rules were no un- necessary magic”
“Well Hun I made the rules and as it’s ‘All Hallows Eve’ I thought I would treat myself to some saucery feel free to join in just for tonight.”


At about 7pm they both dressed up in their finest, Merlin as a grey wizard and Morgana as a sorceress. They’d not worn these clothes for years and were delighted to find that they fitted perfectly.
It was a cold dark night and as they stepped through wall of their lab on to the street they gave a gang of young lads the fright of their life’s.
“We need a nice pumpkin” Morgana announced, “Come on let’s get over to the allotments and see if there is a nice one there.” Laughing like children as they ran across the road their feet only just touching the ground as though they wanted to fly they had decided not too draw too much attention to themselves! There were children running around dressed up as all-sorts, some traditional, some contemporary but none as good as Morgarna and Merlin.


“Over here Morgana I found the perfect one… Not too large nor too small”
“Yup that one is perfect” Morgana took the pumpkin and ran her nails over it producing a terrifying face then lighting a cigarette she also produced a lit, tea light to make pumpkin man more scary!
They found a cane and attached the head to it and marched off towards the nearby housing estate to “scare the bejesus out of as many unsuspecting children as possible.


“Oh I need a drink” laughed Morgarna “That woman’s face was a picture when you turned her horrid little boys into three sprites”
” Not half as bad as when you turned them back and told her to take more water with it” chuckled Merlin, “pour me one while you are at it , I’ll have whatever you are having”
Morgana and Merlin both slumped down on to the sofa, Bacardi and Coke and fish and a chips supper on their laps. “Anything good on box” asked Merlin.
“Halloween” Morgarna smirked.

Merlin, was tired he had not felt this tired for decades! This cleaning up had taken a lot out of him, a spell to keep everything and everyone in the castle suspended in time, while he got the place cleaned up! …… Admittedly he was using a spell for that too but ‘ That was okay’ he’d asured himself he was not sticking to the “no unnecessary magic pact” was okay as long as Morgana was not there to witness . No not while Guinevere and Morgana were supping wine and eating Venison in a little time bubble in Guinevere’s chambers.


Morgana was absolutely amazed at how the years of separation, centuries infact, just rolled away and they were joking and laughing as if they were still living in the same time zone.
“Really Morgana you and Merlin? Working together? In the future? Really? ” Asked a wide eyed Guinevere! “I just can’t understand that at all”
“Never mind Gwen, you don’t need to, I will wipe all this knowledge from your brain before I leave.” Replied a slightly tipsy Morgana.


Merlin looked around and decided the castle was clean enough and he’d had finished. So he decided to pop up to his old rooms while his Arthurian self was still fast asleep.
His room was very much as he remembered it, full of boxes and potions and books!
“I wonder if I still have my old skulls and bones” he wondered to himself. “I kept them under my bed if I remember correctly” Merlin winced as he bent down to see under his bed !
“Yes” he shouted as he spotted the old box gathering dust.


“What’s in the box” asked Morgana as she and Merlin stood in the tunnel under the castle.
“Ah!” He beamed, “this box contains my bone and skull collection. It’s coming back with us…I think it’s going to be very useful”
“A box of old skulls” reapted A giggling Morgana.
Just then they heard raised voices and running feet coming their way.
Right on que the anomaly appeared, “here’s our ride” smiled Morgana.
Just as the guards appeared Morgana and Merlin jumped and were gone!
The first guard on the scene turned to the second and asked, ” Did you see those boots?…weird”
“Yes” replied guard number two, “I certainly did, a French make, I believe”.

“Ouch! That’s exactly what I hate about these medieval shoes!” Merlin winged as he landed.
“No sympathy hun, you insisted on being authentic” Morgana laughed making little quote marks in his face. “Personally I find my old Doc Martin’s serve me well, even in medieval times. If anyone asks why they are so strange I just say they are made in France.”
“Damn that hurts ” Merlin had stepped on another stone. Losing her temper Morgana snapped at him “Will you man up, you baby! It’s your own vanity’s fault that you are walking round in what is basically fancy leather socks! “


They had landed in a long and dank passage with earth floors. They checked Merlin’s notes and after checking their barings they head towards a set of steps. Morgana took two torches out of her bag and handed one to Merlin.
As they reached the top steps they checked to see if they were still alone. “Okay” said Morgana “torches out and remember who you are”
“Yes I am a Lord Failin and you my little pretty are my harlot” Merlin replied pinching Morgan’s bottom ” Smiling she looked Merlin in the eye stamped firmly on his foot. “Watch where you put your hand hun ” Merlin bitterly regretted only having soft leather shoes on.


Merlin and Morgana made their way through the castle it was very odd, no guards or servants anywhere . “It’s like the Marie Celeste” said Morgana ” and I would know because I was on that ship.”
Merlin cleared his throat and said “Right we need to find the Queen’s appartment she is the one seeking our help.” Morgana delved into her bag again and took out a map of the castle. “Ah!” She said here we are up a floor first on the left just as I remember”


As they entered the Queen’s chamber they were shocked to see a terrified Guinevere hiding behind a chair by the fire.
“Who are you sir and why do you dare to enter my chambers?” Asked the Guinevere .
“I am Lord Failin your majesty and I am here to help you. Now I have been told that all the servants and soldiers are either intoxicated or ill.” Said Merlin giving her a flourishing bow as he did.
“You both look familiar have we met before? ” Asked Guinevere.
Morgana smiled at her and replied, “Maybe my queen but in another life” “Hush harlot don’t confuse matters, hush now my queen sleep”
Guinevere fell into a gentle sleep immediately. “Not lost your touch yet” muttered Morgana.


As they left the Queen’s chambers the smell of vomit and diarrhea suddenly become stronger, as they advanced they found servants, guards, nobles and ladies in varying stages of sickness …some were not sick but so drunk that they were incapable of speach or standing up!
“I think I know what this is ” Morgana announced “We need to check the kitchen right now.”


The kitchen was the same as everwhere else, sleeping bodies, drunk and confused children and a lot of mess. Merlin looked around and saw himself asleep in the corner….what a good-looking chap I am he thought to himself!
Morgana made him jump coming in from the kitchen garden “I have found the culprit, *Rododendrom as we know the nectar is posionious!”
“Indeed” replied Merlin “But who has done this, I don’t remember any sneak attacks undertaken when the castle was …..err… under the influence do you?”… “No but I do remember you mentioning you had got annoyed with Arthur and decided to spice things up a tad…. Looking at your former self there in the corner you must of tried tad too much of the mead! “
Merlin looked on sheepishly….”Don’t just stand there Hun you’ve got a lot of cleaning up to do before day break and this lot awake to the mother of all hangovers! “
Looking horrified Merlin asked, “And what are you going to do”
Morgana sat on a near by stool and lit a cigarette. ” After this hun I am going to find some wine….. certainly not mead and have a catch up with Guinevere.” She replied throwing a handy mop in his direction!

*The toxins responsible for the poisonous effects of Rhododendron are grayanotoxins. These are highly oxygentated diterpenoids that have been presumed to be produced elsewhere in the plant as a natural chemical defence against insects.

Azalea/Rhododendron: (Rhododendron spp) Highly poisonous to cats and dogs and cows even if just a few leaves are eaten. Daffodil: (Narcissus) All parts of the daffodil are harmful. Dogs sometimes eat the bulbs, but even a small bite can kill a small animal.

Effects. Rhododendron toxicity is rarely fatal to humans, and symptoms usually last no more than 24 hours. It results in short-term gastrointestinal and cardiac problems, and the severity depends on the amount of honey or nectar ingested.

Grayanotoxins are produced by Rhododendron species and other plants in the family EricaceaeHoney made from the nectar and so containing pollen of these plants also contains grayanotoxins and is commonly referred to as mad honey.
