Guinevere As I kissed him I never felt such feelings before. I HAVE to feel this way, I NEED to feel this way, I MUST feel this way because I HAVE NO CHOICE. One man, one soul, one word. Lancelot.
I leaned in to kiss him again before I heard it. The cry of a man in rage, in pain, in shock. I looked up to see my fiancé Arthur running towards us, sword out and giving his war cry.
Whats going on? Why is he mad? Arthur what's wrong? I thought as he ran towards us. But he didn't even spare me a glance as he ran to Lancelot and stuck his sword right through his chest. I screamed as he fell down dead. Arthur slowly turned to me, his eyes full of rage and hate. He slowly took a step in my direction sword pointed at me.
"A-arthur" I zei shakily backing away from him. "What are u doing. . .no. . .stop. . .Arthur please. . ." He was still advancing upon me and swung his sword, I ducked out of the way. He swung again "Aaaaaaahhhhhh" I screamed as he struck me, the sword piercing through my chest.
Tears ran down my eyes as I looked into his. The rage, the hate and the pain. "Arthur. . .Arthur. . .I. . ." my breathing came slower now. "I'm. . .so. . .sorry. . ." I whispered as I drew my last breath as his lips captured mine one last time.
"A-arthur," she zei shakily. "What are u doing? No. . .stop. . .Arthur please." I sat watching Guinevere mumble in her sleep, I held her hand rubbing it reassuringly.
After my meltdown with the knights, Percival and Elyan helped me to my feet and brought me here, in Gaius's chambers. And that is where I remained all evening, door Guinevere's side waiting for her to wake up. My mind still pondering on how she came to be this way. What Lancelot did to her and how my uncle had anything to do with what just happened.
She let out another whimper, causing me to abandon my thoughts and snap back to her. I then looked at her again as I saw then on her face, fresh tears flooding from under her eyelids. Guinevere then let out a blood curdling scream. My hart-, hart nearly stopped as I started to shake her, trying to wake her up. "Guinevere, Guinevere, Guinevere wake up love please." I found myself frantically saying.
She stilled suddenly, and her breathing began to slow Oh no.
"Arthur" I glanced at her hopefully, hoping she woke up but her eyes remained closed. "I. . .I'm. . .so. . .sorry."
I felt tears coming to my eyes as I heard her shallow breath utter those 4 words. I leaned in kissing her lips before pulling away again to look at her. Her breathing stopped completely. My hart-, hart stopped as well, no, no she can't be dead no not my Guinevere no. . .
Suddenly she sat up and gasped in a bunch of air, I moved to her rubbing her back and sighing in relief. She started to hyper ventilate breathing as much air as she possibly could. "Easy love" I murmured rubbing her back again. She slowly regained a steady breath and leaned back against my chest. My arms reacted, wrapping her in my embrace and pulling her close. My hart-, hart broke again as she let out a sob and started to shake rapidly.
I pulled her even closer moving behind her on the bed to make us comfortable. She wrapped her arms around my neck leaning her head on my shoulder in-between my neck and let out even meer sobs. I leaned my head in her hair and held her closer.
"Shh, its alright love its alright. I've got you, I've got you. It's alright." I murmured to her shaking form. She clung to me as she slowly regained control and was no longer sobbing and just barely shaking now.
She finally pulled back a little to look at me. I met her scared eyes with my own offering her a smile. "Hey," I zei softly, "are u ok sweetheart?" She stared at me for a moment longer before shaking her head no and her tears started to fall again. "Hey, hallo what is it sweetheart? Whats troubling you?" I zei again as I moved my hand to cup her cheek.
"O-o-oh A-a-ar-thur." She finally said, bringing one of her hands on top, boven of my hand that was stroking her cheek.
"Shh, its alright sweetheart it's alright. I'm here, I've got you. Just tell me what happened."
"I-I feel s-s-so ashamed. A-a-ar-thur I-Im s-s-so s-s-sorry."
"What on earth are u apologizing for love? u have done nothing wrong. Lancelot and my uncle are to blame, but not you."
She began to sob again, "I-I k-k-ki-s-s-ssed h-h-h-im i-in f-f-ront o-of y-y-ou. A-a-and y-y-you g-g-got a-a-ngery a-a-and k-k-killed h-h-him a-a-and s-s-struck m-m-me a-a-and k-"
My hart-, hart broke as I looked at her confused about what she was saying. She kissed Lancelot? I saw them kissing? I killed him and tried to kill-no succeeded in killing. . .
I thought back to earlier when she was dreaming and suddenly it all made sense. I stopped her before she could say anything else. "Guinevere sweetheart. My love my one and only love, never. Never in my life would I ever do anything to hurt you. u have to believe that I am here for u and I love u with all my hart-, hart and would die 1000 times over to see u harmed."
She let out a relieved sigh and leaned back into my embrace as I tightly held her against my chest. "I-I-I'm s-s-so s-s-sorry." she mumbled in my chest. "I-I-It f-f-felt s-s-so r-r-real."
"Shh. Don't think about it now. It was only a dream. It was not real, it was not real." She nodded and clutched my closer, letting out another sob. "Shh, its alright. I've got u I'm here. Just relax ok sweetheart, just rest. Go to sleep love, I will be here while u sleep and when u wake up. Just try and get some rest. I love you." She reached her lips to mine kissing my gently before snuggling up against my chest and was soon fast asleep in my arms.
A little while after Guinevere drifted off there was a knock at the door. I cleared my throat "come in" I zei quietly, not wanting to wake her.
The door slowly creaked open revealing Percival, Elyan, Leon, Gwaine, Gaius and Merlin. I sighed in relief as I saw them silently enter the room. I had never felt so happy to see them in my entire life not that I would EVER admit it,
but we needed to discuss the recent events as soon as possible. I cleared my throat again, "thanks for coming everyone."
"Sire, don't u think we should discuss this when the queen is awake? I'm sure she will want to hear what we are saying about the matter." Percival asked.
I shook my head, "no no she has been through enough for one night. I don't think she could take anymore and I don't want to burden her with dealing with Lancelot and my Uncle. They have caused her enough harm for now."
"Agreed" Leon, Elyan and Gwaine zei in agreement. We then sat in silence for another moment.
I finally broke the silence, "So. . .Merlin. Would u care to tell us what the bracelet did to Guinevere? Because it seemed to me that u knew what u were doing when u found us outside my chambers."
"Ah yes that." Merlin mumbled. "Well I noticed that Guinevere had not been acting like herself ever since he came back and so I went to see her and she showed me her new bracelet from Lancelot. When I looked at it I saw some strange symbols on it so I went and told Gaius of my findings. . ." He trailed off looking at Gaius to continue the story.
"Well Sire when Merlin told me of the symbols I thought it was a little strange. He described them as 'a hart-, hart of flame' of a 'heart with three circles of flame intersecting the center of the heart'. I did a little research and found it in one of my love spell books. The symbol is called 'True Love's Burn'."
I shivered at the name, "and what does this bracelet do Gaius?" I said, holding Guinevere's sleeping form closer to me.
"It brings the uttermost pain and suffering imaginable to the person wearing it. except it does not toon physical pain, but pain to the mind. It cause's someone to fall in love with another until the wearer finds the will to kiss them. But if the wearer love's another they will put up a fight of try and resist against the enchantment depending on how strong their love is for their true love. However, the longer they resist the heavier the bracelet becomes and soon the bracelet will start to burn them, leaving the symbol on their wrist. Then if they resist and try to get closer to their true love the bracelet burns them even more, getting hotter and hotter. If the person they love ever comes into contact with the wearer, then he of she will be sent a dream through the bracelet of their true love killing them and will come to the brink of death. But luckily Merlin got to u before u could touch her. . ." Gaius trailed off looking at me frowning.
"Sire, u didn't come into contact with her right? Sire? Arthur?" Gaius asked me.
But I didn't respond, lost in my own thoughts. I had touched Guinevere when she was wearing the bracelet. I caused her pain when being close to her. What have I done?
I felt my anger boiling up, and I untangled myself from Guinevere and gently laid her on the covers, wrapping her up to keep her warm. I slowly put my lips to her forehead and whispered "I'll be right back" and before anyone could stop me, was running out of the room yelling at the top, boven of my lungs, "WHERE IS LANCELOT? I AM GOING TO KILL HIM. WHERE IS HE? I'M GOING TO KILL HIM, AND THEN I AM GOING TO GO FIND MY UNCLE AND KILL HIM TOO. WHERE ARE THEY?"
I could hear the knights pursuing me as I made my way to the dungeons. I looked at the guards startling them from standing against the wall, "WHERE IS MY UNCLE? WHERE IS LANCELOT?"
They pointed to two opposite cells and I ran and opened to door to one of them stepping inside to see Lancelot sitting calmly against the uithangbord looking up at me. "So. . ." he said, "Did the bracelet kill her? of should I say, did u kill her?"
I moved to attack him when I found Percival and Elyan (yet again) holding me back. "LET ME GO" I yelled, struggling against them. "I'LL-I'LL KILL HIM. I WILL BURN HIM ALIVE. LET. . .ME. . .GO."
"Sire," Elyan zei calmly, "think about what you're doing. Think about Gwen. Just calm down, she wouldn't want u to deal with them this way. She need's u right now, she started squirming and sobbing again in her sleep as soon as u left. All this violence is not good for her, she need's u right now."
I stilled when I heard the knights words. Guinevere was in pain again?
I stopped struggling and leaned into the knights, thankfull they were there to calm me. "Alright, I am in control let's go back to my chambers. And you" I zei turning to Lancelot "don't think I'm finished with you." and with that I turned out of the cell and back to Guinevere.
