Summary: Arthur joins his knights on a mission to hunt a magical beast.
Word Count: 100 exactly. Yeah, baby!
Prompt: 403, I miss moments
Author's note: tag this as being AU because I put the timing wrong. I forgot that Lancelot died before Uther. Oops. I have more that I wrote for it that I had to cut, which might make it into a longer fic. I'll fix the mistake then.
The fire was small, barely giving off any heat, but it was still entrancing. Arthur stared into it, letting his mind wander. He shouldn’t be enjoying this quest. They were on the trail of a magical beast that had attacked two villages. He let the sounds of his knights bickering wash over him. He felt as if he never got to leave the castle.
His attention was caught by Lancelot stoking the fire a bit. “Sire, are you alright?”
Arthur smiled. “I’m fine, Lancelot. Just thinking about how I miss moments like this more than anything now that I’m king.”
