Gwaine loved going on patrols. He loved walking through the city and the outlying villages feeling important and well-respected upon by the people of Camelot. A lot of things a knighthood can do to you in such so short a time. Sure, it hadn’t exactly come on a silver platter. Gwaine and his fellow new knights had to stand strong by Arthur in his time of need, battling an immortal army as they rescue King Uther and take back Camelot from his magical and evil half-sister Morgana. It wasn’t one Gwaine minded doing at all. Even before Arthur had heralded him and the others the knighthood, he had already pledged his loyalty to the prince. The knighthood only made it official. After all he had been through with Arthur, he knew he was worth dying for.
Anyway, Gwaine loved patroling so much, he had volunteered to go out on a jaunt to the far-flung villages on the hills of Camelot. Of course, it wouldn't be any ordinary patrol. It's a one-knight, two-pronged job. He was doing it alone, and he must not only check on the village but gather some information as well. He had been to these places once or twice in his early wanderings, and wondered how they are faring now. He wondered if news about Morgana's brief takeover of Camelot had reached them, and how it had affected them. Arthur would appreciate whatever news or bits of information he could take back to the city upon his return.
The sun was high up in the sky, casting sweltering light and heat to the surroundings, as Gwaine spied the first village after traveling for a day. Dressed in everyday clothes, the knight led his horse Leonie towards the unmistakable tavern, hoping to get something to eat and some directions to an inn. He had hoped to spend at least one night mingling with the locals, and getting whatever information he could gather from them. Best stay incognito, pretend to be just a traveler heading to Camelot, in search of information. He’d get honest answers that way rather than to tell the people outright who he really was. Shouldn’t be too hard for him. He had been pretending to be a nobody for most of his life, anyway.
