Arthur felt an odd sort of nervousness as he made his way down the hall toward one of the knight's chambers. While he was often a confident man, there was usually just one particular subject that could make him feel easily frazzled, insecure and flustered: Guinevère. It was both in a wonderful way, as if he was a young man desperately in love. But it also had its more intense moments, just as what had happened in the recent past. He had banished her, yet they were reunited in Ealdor. And then with everything that had happened, they had not had the chance to talk. The castle was finally settling down, with Morgana and Helios' men gone, so Arthur knew that chance to talk to her would soon come.
But there was someone else he wished to talk to first, and that was Elyan. Not only was he of course her brother, but Arthur considered him his own brother too. To hear what the torture he had endured made Arthur feel terrible. For he knew it was his fault, and he knew that Elyan's loyalty was what made him suffer for so long. So the main purpose to see him was to ensure he was recovering well. Though Gaius had assured him of such, Arthur would feel far better seeing it himself rather, especially since he didn't even know until they retook control of the castle if Elyan, Gwaine, Gaius and the others were still alive. Arthur was all too relieved that they were, for he doubted he could endure the loss of either man. Realizing he was now standing outside Elyan's door, Arthur reached into his pocket to look at the ring that he had given Guinevère for their first engagement.
Isolde's death had opened his eyes to so much. Despite everything that happened between then, Arthur knew that Guinevère loved him. And he of course loved her. That was all that mattered. Taking a deep breath, he tucked the ring back in his pocket and knocked on the door before slowly opening it. "Elyan?" he questioned, in a tone that was not loud enough to wake him if he was resting, but loud enough to be heard if he was awake. Noticing he was, Arthur continued. "Am I disturbing you?" He further asked, not wanting to impose if Elyan did not feel strong enough for company. After all the man had gone through, it would be understandable. But alas, if Elyan was one thing it was strong and resilient.Setting: In Elyan's chambers
