Lady Guinevere was betrothed to Prince Arthur as a young child and now that he has become the king, he is ready to make the young woman his wife.

The next morning seemed to come and go quickly as Guinevere prepared for the wedding ceremony. After she had taken a long hot bath, Ava and five other servants came into the room to help Guinevere get ready. She sat in her silk chemise while the women brushed her dark brown hair into curls and pinned them on top of her head. Once the bride's hair was finished, Ava secured several small golden jewels into her hair, adding a touch of glimmer. The wedding dress was stunning and when the sunlight touched the fabric, the golden threads seem to sparkle. The ivory satin material was embroidered with gold strands in a beautiful fleur delis pattern and the edges of the dress were trimmed in golden crystals. Jeweled broaches pinned the sheer ivory train to her shoulders and the square neckline concealed much of her cleavage. Guinevere slipped on the ivory colored shoes and then smiled when she saw Ava tearing up.

"Ava, this is no time for tears," Guinevere whispered to her servant.

"You are so beautiful m'lady, I am truly happy for you," Ava replied.

"Thank you Ava, you are a true friend and I cherish that."

The king's steward escorted Lady Guinevere to a small private room next to the large chapel where he asked her to wait for the king. She nodded politely and then walked to the window where she could see the crowds of people that waited outside for the marriage of their king. The vast amount of people that lived in Camelot was surprising to Guinevere and everyone seemed to be anxiously waiting for the bells to ring, symbolizing the wedding had taken place. The waiting bride noticed that even those who only had meager funds looked healthy and clean. There was no poverty here. King Arthur was good to his people and Camelot truly was an ideal society.[End Excerpt] Knowing the man that Arthur was, made Guinevere feel reassured that she was doing the right thing, even if that meant giving up her life with a sword.
