As soon as Gwen dressed she went to Morgana's room and knocked on the door. "Morgana? Are you in there? I came to see if you wanted to go shopping with me?"
"I'm not feeling well, Gwen." Morgana said through the door. "I just need some time alone. I'm sorry. Maybe some other time?"
"Of course." Gwen sighed. "I'm sorry to have bothered you. Feel better."
"Thank you, Gwen." Morgana's footsteps moved away from the door.
Gwen left to look for Arthur after she tried unsuccessfully to get Morgana to open the door. She found him sitting at the writing desk in the library.
Arthur looked up and smiled as she walked into the room. "Guinevere, I thought you and Morgana would be off shopping."
"Morgana isn't up to shopping. She's locked herself in her room and doesn't want to be disturbed. I fear you will have to accompany me shopping."
"I can do that." Arthur put down his pen. "Where should we start?"
"Dresses then shoes and hats? I'm sorry to make you endure what will be nothing short of torture for you."
Arthur smiled. "I don't mind. Shall we go?"
Gwen nodded. "Yes."
Arthur sat and watched as Gwen chose everything she needed in her new life.. She would ask his opinion occasionally but for the most part Arthur was only there to pay for the purchases.
They had just left the milners when Arthur spotted something in a shop window. He had the driver put the packages into the carriage then pointed Gwen in the direction of the cobbler.
"Go on in. I'll be there in a moment. I need to pick up something."
Gwen nodded and went to choose some footwear to go with her dresses and gowns.
Five minutes later, Arthur came into the shop and sat to wait while Gwen finished shopping. He patted his pocket and smiled as he thought of the sutprise he had in store for her.
