To Win the World
"I'm here," she thought. "I've arrived."
Looking across a sea of fearful faces, Morgana felt the unaccustomed weight of her gem-studded crown. Queen of Camelot. Everything she'd schemed and killed for. At last.
Secret worry marred the moment. Arthur. Was he dead?
She wanted him to live.
The coronation glory suddenly seemed hollow, lacking true joy at its core.
She'd once believed Arthur would sit by her side, the two of them ruling as one, united. Impossible now. And yet, how could she have acted differently?
Love suppressed, heart permanently overruled, she had only pride, rage, and vengeance left.
