Ygraine sat on the bed waiting in the bed chamber she shared with Uther. She was wearing the silver charm that Nimue gave her. The stone in the center was blood red and warm against her skin. She could feel the magick pulsing inside it.
Uther came in with a bluster. "You're still awake?"
"I was waiting for you." Ygraine walked over and helped him take off his armor.
Uther looked at her. He couldn't keep his eyes off her. He slipped the chain mail over his head and grabbed her. "What are you about, woman? I feel magick in this room."
"No magick. Just a wife wanting to be close to her husband." Ygraine leaned against him and felt the reaction of his body that she wanted. "Uther, come to bed with me. Be my husband."
Uther let her lead him to the bed and watched as Ygraine dropped her nightdress to the floor. Uther pulled off his clothes in a hurry then lifted his wife onto the bed.
They lay intertwined all night and in the morning, Uther lay face down on the bed, exhausted and spent.
Ygraine took off the charm. There was no magick left in it. She would know soon if it worked.
