Word Count: 280
Prompt: 390 Shopping
Gwen dropped her shopping bags on the floor of her room at the palace. She dropped into a chair next to them. It was getting harder and harder to do anything normal now that everyone knew she was going be the next queen of Britain.
Arthur came to the connecting door of their rooms. "Any luck?"
"No. This is getting ridiculous. I can't even go shopping without an escort." Gwen sighed and pulled off her shoes. "I guess no more bargain basement shopping for me."
"Well, you could have people do it for you or order online." Arthur leaned on the doorframe.
"And have every package opened by security? No thank you. I don't think you want them seeing my new knickers before you do." Gwen glared at him. "How did Elizabeth do this?"
"She never had a normal life. She didn't have to give up anything because she never had it in the first place." Arthur frowned. "We will be married soon and things are going to be even harder."
"Morgana doesn't have this problem. She still has her shop. I had to give up my job." Gwen stood up and walked over to Arthur. "You and Merlin are the ones responsible for all of this."
"Not me. Merlin of Camelot put this in motion. I'm as much a victim of the prophecy as you are." Arthur pulled her close. "All this work I'm doing to rebuild a kingdom that I have no memory of. Not to mention, I have to find knights who may not even exist in this incarnation."
"So, we blame Merlin for all of this?" Gwen leaned on Arthurs chest.
"Yeah. Damn sorcerer." Arthur chuckled.
