She had always called him King.
Of course, she wasn’t the first to make the King Arthur joke. He’d get it every so often from someone who thought they were so original with the round table joke.
But it was never something he thought about much with her. She just called him King as easily as if it was his given name. It was so natural and easy with her. There was so much that he just instinctively understood about her. He thought, for sure, that this would be the relationship to last him for the rest of his life.
But, to be perfectly honest, he hadn’t though it would be because this relationship would actually lead to his death.
