After the feast, Arthur lay back on his bed listening to the sweet music of a harp echoing through the castle
Arthur tiptoed through the courtyard, he stopped at a lighted window and looked in. Sitting in the room was a beautiful girl playing the flute
Merlin told Arthur he could not marry Guenivere as it would bring him ruin. Arthur protested angrily
No, Arthur, you'll bring yourself misery and ruin
Merlin, I will marry Guenivere
That night in Caerleon, a stranger came out of the stormy night seeking shelter. They dined together. Arthur immediately fell in love with her.
When she came into his room, he pretended to be asleep, but when she climbed into his bed he could pretend no longer. Bercelet growled thunderuosly.
Either the dog goes or I do
What am I doing!?
In the morning, the woman was gone. Arthur realised how he had betrayed his love for Genivere. For days afterwards he roamed the countryside, angry at himself he turned to drink for comfort but found none there. He longed to see Guinevere and Merlin again.
