Morgana was firmly of the belief that she was past the age of acting a spoiled child pouting because their father-figure had taken a shinning to someone else. Lady Catrina seemed pleasant enough, if not a little fragile in her opinion, though Morgana knew she had no right to judge. Her ordeal had been a long and harrowing one, especially if Uther's urgency on the matter was any indicator, so she had every right to take time getting herself back together, but one thing that still sat uncomfortably with the King's Ward was their ages. Oh older men marrying younger women were not uncommon, it was seen almost every other month in the courts of the land, but in this case, Morgana was perplexed. This was Uther Pendragon after all. The man so set in his ways and mindset that not even a war would change it she suspected.
Queen Ygraine, what little of her Morgana knew, was the love of Uthers life. The one woman that he had pledged his heart and soul to. It had been twenty years since her death and she had not yet seen Uther's eye even glance at another. This sudden shift in that had caught everyone off guard it seemed. Catrina had only been with them a short time and already Uther had married her, and now named her heir to the kingdom.
If it had been any other man, perhaps Morgana would have felt happy for her guardian. And if Arthur had not just been all but disowned by the man, she would have felt less unsettled. Arthur was, and always had been, Camelot's heir. To hear that the King had stripped him of that... well, it formed a solid weight in her gut that did not sit well with the Lady. Hence her reasons for visiting his chamber this evening. She had dismissed Guinevère, and now stood outside Arthur's chambers, her hand poised to knock, which she did.
Morgana allowed her hand to fall back to her side as she waited. She knew he would be in his chambers. There she stood, in all her barefoot and mostly prepared for bed glory, standing outside the wooden doors to her adoptive brothers chambers as she tried to figure out what to say when he answered.
