Gwen walked towards Arthur in all her wedding finery thinking how lucky she was. She gave Merlin and her family a very wide smile to which Merlin replied with a big goofy grin.
When Gwen reached Arthur Merlin noticed a very beautiful raven haired woman enter the throne room. All the hairs on the back of his neck pricked up. There was no doubt that this woman was a witch but her heart was cruel and twisted with hatred. She was up to something and Merlin was ready to protect not only the royal couple but everyone in the room. He moved quickly to the end of the line of people ready to spring into action if he was needed.
The beautiful woman continued down the aisle and Arthur's head turned in her direction. He immediately moved in front of Gwen to shield her.
'Hello dear baby brother, why wasn't I invited to this joyous occasion?'
'Morgana you know full well why you weren't invited, why come?'
'I wanted to meet the woman who'd managed to persuade the great King Arthur to change his mind about magic.'
Gwen boldly stepped out in front of Arthur, 'hello my lady, I am Guinevere Leodegrance, pleased to meet you.'
Morgana just raised an eyebrow, 'eww what a sweet little witch, how sickening!'
'So Arthur you'd change your mind about magic for a woman you found rather than your own sister?' Morgana questioned.
'Morgana you only ever used your magic for evil and yourself. Guinevere has shown me that magic can be used for good and for others.'
'Well I'm not going to let this little unknown take over my role as the Queen of Camelot!' Morgana practically screamed as she cast a spell to harm them. But Gwen was quicker while Arthur and Morgana had been talking Gwen had already cast a Magickal Circle which brought instant protection. Her eyes had flickered to Merlin who had cast a protective circle around the guests to stop Morgana hurting any of them.
Morgana's spell rebounded causing her to be thrown back by the force of her own spell. Her eyes met Gwen's who stood over her, 'for such a little thing you're certainly stronger than I expected!' Morgana exclaimed.
'Guards,' Arthur shouted but Morgana had already disappeared.
Arthur clasped Gwen's hands, 'I'm so sorry for my sister and yet again you've proved how magic can be used for good and how kind you are.'
Gwen smiled at him and she was glad that her magical powers were so strong. She made a mental note to perform a Gris, Gris to cancel out Morgana's magic so it couldn't harm them. Gwen nodded at Arthur so that they could continue on with their ceremony.
The rest of the morning passed in a wave of happiness including her coronation. After their ceremony had been sealed with a passionate kiss the crowd had clapped. They then moved into the great hall, where long tables had been piled high with food. Everybody continued celebrating and toasting the couple especially their new Queen. When the food was finished and the toasting was done the couple rose and took their leave. Arthur left Gwen momentarily so she was able to remove her heavy wedding gown. A maid helped her to remove the dress and she put on a beautiful peach dress.
Once ready she waited until Arthur knocked on her and she noticed that he'd also changed into simple breeches and a red shirt. 'Come on, I've got a surprise,' he said holding her hand as he led her out of the castle. He led her down into the courtyard where his horse stood he jumped up then picked her up to place her in front of him. She twisted round to face him, 'where are you taking me?' she questioned. 'You'll have to wait and see,' he replied with a mischievous glint in his eyes.
He rode deep into the forest until they came to a river and he jumped down off the horse and reached up to hold on to Gwen's waist to bring her to her feet. 'I know how important nature and the river is to you so I built you something so you could come and be here whenever you want,' he turned her around and she saw a wooden house.
'You did this for me?' Gwen questioned stunned that Arthur could be so thoughtful.
'I had a little help from Merlin who explained how important your magic is and how you would love to be closer to nature rather than in the castle all the time,' he explained.
Gwen reached up and kissed him, 'thank you thank you so much.'
'Let's go inside,' Arthur said walking her forward by holding her at her waist. He gave her the keys so she could open the door. Once they entered Gwen was amazed at how clean it was and looked around seeing all the ingredients she'd need for her potions.
As she moved deeper into the house she saw a beautiful large bed with carved panels that had been made up with a large mattress, luxurious quilts and plump pillows. There was a table in the corner that was covered with food and wine. Stunned Gwen turned to Arthur who saw the surprised look on her face. 'If you want to we can spend our first night here,' he said. 'But if you don't like it we can return to the castle.'
Gwen was so surprised by his kind actions she could hardly speak. 'You did this for me?'
He nodded. 'I want you to feel at home in Camelot and continue to practice your magic. I don't want you to feel that you have to give anything up. But if you don't-'
He was interrupted as Gwen flung her arms around him and wrapped them around his neck.
Arthur held her, his hands sliding slowly down over her back and hips. His lips kissed her cheeks, her chin and the softness of her lips. Through the layers of pleasure Gwen was kissing him back and trying to draw him deeper by kissing him harder but he resisted with a laugh.
'We're going to take this slowly I don't want to take advantage of you.'
'You won't,' she protested. 'There's no need to feel like you are taking advantage of me I'm your wife and I want to give myself to you freely.'
With her full consent Arthur undid the tiny row of buttons that held her dress together as his hands moved down he traced the line of her spine with soft kisses. As her dress and chemise fell to the floor he turned her around so he could look his fill. 'My God,' he muttered taking in the beauty of her body. 'Guinevere you are the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.'
She went to the bed and reclined back on the bed in invitation. Arthur came to her, stripping off his shirt along the way. The sight of him, all that muscle, sun-warmed skin and blonde hair was breathtaking. He was a beautiful man and he was hers. She reached for him and welcomed him into her bed.
'Good morning Mrs. Pendragon,' Arthur whispered into her ear the next morning. Gwen turned over and kissed him. 'Good morning Mr. Pendragon,' Gwen replied. After they shared their breakfast they returned to the castle to continue their lives as King and Queen.
