He leaves his chambers silently to go to hers. He has gotten quite good at having no one notice him. He should be a master by now, with how long he's been doing it. They have been sneaking around and spending the nights together for almost a year now. It's a miracle that Arthur has not found out about them. They haven't been extremely careful lately.
He is almost to her room now. He thinks about earlier today.
They had woken up late, and Gwen was looking for Morgana. She was at the door, knocking. He had hidden in her bathroom until she left.
Yes, they have been a bit restless lately. He only wishes they wouldn't have to hide their love from everyone. It is not a crime to fall in love. And you can't help who you fall in love with.
He is at her door now. He takes a small folded up piece of paper out of his pocket. He slides it under her door. He sits against her door and waits.
She had been sitting in her bed for some time now. He was late again. But she was use to it. She loved how he would get so caught up in his work he would lose track of time. It shows how much passion he has for that one thing.
She just wishes it wasn't when he was supposed to be with her. They don't get to spend much time together as it is. Arthur had been convinced that magic is evil by his father. He would ban them from Camelot if he ever found out about their magic. And he would not like for his only sister to be bedding his manservant.
She hears a noise coming from her door. She walks over and picks the piece of paper up of the ground. Walks back over to her bed and sits down. She unfolds the piece of paper, careful not to rip it. She can tell it's from Him, it's his hand writing.
'Dear my love, haven't you wanted to be with me?
Dear my love, haven't you longed to be free?
I can't keep pretending that I don't even know you.
And at sweet night, you are my own.
Take my hand, we're leaving here tonite.
There's no need to tell anyone, they'll only hold us down.
So by the morning light, we'll be half way to anywhere,
Where love is more then just your name.'
She puts the paper down on her bed and opens her door. And there he is, waiting. He stands up and she pulls him inside her room and shuts the door.
"I have dreamt of a place for you and I, no one knows who we are there." She begins to sing. "All I want is to give my life only to you. I've dreamt so long, I can not dream anymore."
He grabs her hands and holds them in his. "Let's run away. I'll take you there. There's no need to tell anyone. They'd only hold us down. So by the morning light, we'll be half way to anywhere."
"Where no one needs a reason" she sings back.
"Forget this life, come with me. Don't look back you're safe now."
"Unlock your heart, drop your guard. No ones left to stop you."
"Forget this life, come with me. Don't look back you're safe now. Unlock your heart, drop your guard. No ones left to stop you now."
"We're leaving here tonite. There's no need to tell anyone, they'd only hold us down. So by the morning light we'll be half way to anywhere, where love is more then just your name."
He pulls her as close as he can and kisses her passionately. When they finally break apart, they are both gasping for air. He takes her hand and they run out of her room. Huge smiles spread across their faces. They sneak out of the castle and don't look back. They didn't grab anything, they don't need anything. They just need each other, and that's more then enough for both of them.
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed!
