Arthur was standing in the courtyard, awaiting the arrival of Princess Yassia. Word had been sent from Mercia that the prince's new wife would be returning to Camelot for a short period of time . . . and Arthur wanted to give them no excuse. While the treaty was still in place, he knew how Bayard coveted Camelot. And with Uther currently unwell, every responsibility fell upon Arthur, and he would do nothing, absolutely nothing to bring war to Camelot. But it was not only for this reason that he wished to personally greet Yassia. She was after all a friend to the kingdom, and a relative of one of the nobles here. Part of it was personal, as well as political. With the dangers in the kingdom -- considering Morgana was still out there somewhere as well as other enemies of the kingdom -- Arthur sent a few knights to the borders to ensure them safe passage. While he of course knew she would not be traveling alone, he wanted to offer extra protection . . . just as a safety precaution.
Hearing that they were approaching the city, he now stood at the bottom of the stairs of the castle in the courtyard, and it did not take long for the princess and the knights of both Mercia and Camelot to come into view. He took a couple of steps forward, his mind recalling their first meeting . . . when neither knew who the other was. Both had assumed the other was a commoner, and ironically, both ended up being royalty. It was quite ironic indeed. As Yassia neared him, Arthur lowered his head out of respect for the princess. "Princess Yassia," he greeted politely, formally, yet with a hint of slight warmth for he knew her from before. He knew her as Yassia, not only as wife of Oliver. "Welcome back to Camelot," he continued, relieved to see that she had arrived here safely.
