It had been a long past couple months, but alas, it was over and they were returning home, victorious. That was the biggest relief of all. Camelot's reputation of their army continued to stand strong as they remained undefeated in battle. One of their enemies had been trying to get through the borders so they had no choice but to defend the kingdom, and not only were they able to push the forces back, they had ensured peace. For their enemy had been left with no other alternative. It was either death or a truce and they had picked the wiser outcome. So now, Camelot's forces rode back in. The men were tired but there was that strong festive mood at the same time. Arthur was no exception to this. He felt relieved that this was one less enemy, and one more kingdom that was not united with Camelot.
The relief also extended to the fact that he was able to come home, to his wife. Leaving the kingdom had never been so difficult since he'd gotten married. Before he was married, it had been different. He often rode out with ease, embarking on whatever dangerous mission lay ahead. But now, it grew more and more difficult to venture out, knowing what -- or who -- he was leaving behind. So his excitement not only came from the fact that they no longer had an enemy . . . but also the anticipation of seeing Guinev?re. He was riding alongside his men -- Gwaine talking non stop as usual -- but Arthur's gaze was fixated on the courtyard as they rode through the city. It was night but there was still a crowd on the streets rejoicing in the safe return of the men. While Arthur acknowledged them, nodding toward the various citizens of Camelot, his eyes kept forward, waiting to see the woman he loved.
