Summary: The shine in his eyes told a truth his words couldn't.

    It was the end of a long, stressful day when he looked at me, eyes more determined than I'd ever seen before.
    The sun was setting, the summer air was cool against my face and the stone of the castle floor was like ice against my bare feet. He turned to me and said, "I would do anything for Camelot, you know." Then softer, "I would do anything for you."
    The shine in his eyes told a truth his words couldn't. He didn't look away. He wasn't intimidated by me. I loved that about him. I took his hands in mine and smiled.
    "I know." I said.
    His eyes stayed focused on mine. His attention didn't shift, his gaze never broke. He was searching for something in me.
    "I'm glad you know," he replied, his eyes creasing at the corners as his grin stretched across his face. He turned his hands in mine and squeezed my fingertips.
    It took a few moments for his words to settle into my skin. No more words were spoken, but the weight of his hands in mine and the bright smile in his eyes said it all. He loved me, too.
    "I'm so happy you feel the same," I told him and brought his calloused hands to my lips for a soft kiss to the knuckles.
