Arthur paced in front of his chamber doors. He’d been allowed to see his wife once, and that displeased him. Especially since she seemed was in a lot of pain. She cried out again and something in him snapped. He strode toward his doors.
Merlin jumped in front of him. “I’m sorry, sire, I can’t let you in. Gaius has forbidden—”
“To hell with Gaius! I’m the King and I demand to be let into my own chambers!”
“Arthur, you really can’t. Gaius is the best physician around. He won’t let anything happen to Gwen.”
Gwen yelled again and Arthur had to stop himself from punching his manservant. He was right, after all. “I wish I could be in there with her.”
“I’m sure she knows that. Besides, with the frequency of her cries, it can’t be long now.”
A smaller cry broke out and both men smiled widely.
