Guinevère was able to look at him, until he spoke of doubting her. Blinking she looked down and away; not because he had doubted her but because it was a reminder of how Morgana had made Guinevère doubt and hate herself for years. He'd spoke of how Morgana had done so much to her, but Guinevère knew why. She was the easiest target when you wanted to hurt Arthur. They'd gone after her brother, knowing it would get to Guinevère, they'd gone after her many times over the years because Arthur loved none above her. . . . . and she was an easy pray.
"Morgana knew the only thing that we'd let hurt us, was us." Guinevère said softly, not looking up at him. She'd gone well this time it seemed. "It is not the first love spell that we've seen. I didn't know you were under one either, when Lady Vivian was here. You could not have known then, either." She hoped he believed her, for she didn't have the mind to convince him just yet. Perhaps once this settled in her she could.
She's spent so many years avoiding saying 'his name', but she owed him this much. "Everyone thinks he died a traitor." It wasn't right. Lancelot had been a man of honor. Everyone thought she had betrayed her king, and the man she loved. She didn't care about that. She only cared that Arthur knew the truth. Turning to looked at him, and finally was calming enough to take in the sight of him. He was crying! It made the tears that had dried on her cheeks begin to fall once more, though this time they were silent. Lifting her hand she wiped them from his cheek.
Yesterday he'd forgiven her. In this moment, that forgiveness still meant the world for her. He had thought she'd done the unspeakable, and still he loved her more then her mistakes--and now, knowing she'd been under a spell, she loved him for it. Leaning forward she kissed him! Because he loved her, and she needed that right now.
