Six months. It had been six months of non stop searching. Of constant groups being sent out to look for her. Of . . . destruction. His father had been on a rampage against all druids and any pracitioners of magic -- more of a rampage than usual. And it was so that they could find his ward. Morgana. Ever since her kidnapping, everything had been tense in the kingdom. The castle felt emptier than usual and . . . Arthur had missed her terribly. Granted, he found it was no excuse of the persecution against the people, but they needed to find her. And after six long and grueling months . . . they finally had. By a search party that was not his own. He had sent a team to one end while he had led the other. Arthur had not spent much time in the city since her disappearance. Sleep would come with great difficulty -- and after what few moments he could get, he set out against to find her.
Regardless of the hour. But a messenger a come to him and informed him that she had been found. Hearing this news immediately uplifted his spirit and he raced back toward the city to see her, filled with eagerness to see if she was well and . . . to see that she had come home. Without stopping once on his return, Arthur rushed into the courtyard and quickly dismounted. One of the knights was already there updating him on the situation. But even before he had the chance to speak, Arthur questioned him. "How is she?" He asked worriedly and yet, his tone was filled with relief. "Better than to be expected." Arthur wasn't sure what he had been expecting. The druid people were not exactly known for their cruelty . . . they were a peaceful people. But also very secretive. Which was why it had been so difficult to find her.
"The druid camp?" Arthur asked as he walked up the stairs. "Destroyed. Everyone killed . . . as ordered by the king." Arthur didn't have the time to lament in the loss. For all he could think of was that she was home! Home and safe! Without words, he dismissed the knight and went straight into her chambers. He didn't bother changing out of his armor or going to freshen up. He just needed to see her, right away. Every moment she was gone he had been in fear. Now to have her home, everyone could relax once again. For she was safe and sound! Arthur knocked on the door before just granting himself entrance, unable to restrain his relief. "Morgana?" He asked, walking into her room. A room that had been vacant for far too long. Now reoccupied by its true owner.Setting: Morgana's chambers
