Summary: Arthur vs Lancelot.
Though they are both adults now, there is much of their youth remaining in each of them. They are here now, on the field of single combat, for neither will concede that the shared love of their life is better with the other than with him.
“If you recall,” Lancelot says, “sire, when last you fought me, we ended with my sword at your breast.”
“I recall,” Arthur said. “Know that I have since learned more stratagems and maneuvers.”
“You can have learned all you like – it will not help you.”
They thrust and parried and lashed out with word and grunt and muscle and steel.
Having heard what is happening, Gwen runs to the field and shouts, “Stop it!”
Both men heed her words.
