Urien demands retribution in Ch 13/Sc 2d of RAGING SEA by @KimHeadlee #amwriting

The legendary relationship between Morgan le Fay and her husband King Uriens is always described as being rocky at best.

In fact in many cases, most notably in Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Morgan is the "head chief of the household," while feeble old King Uriens plays second fiddle.

My Uriens counterpart, Chieftain Urien, at this stage in his life stands at the pinnacle of his physical and political power. In today's excerpt from Raging Sea, however, it's also clear that Morghe is well on her way to having him wrapped around her pinky.

“A Saxon assassin attacked my wife,” Urien growled, “when he had intended to target yours.”

“What!” This from Angusel near the back of the hall, which carried over everyone else’s more muted expressions of surprise and shock.

Arthur glared at the lad, who clamped his mouth shut. He turned to Morghe’s husband. “Details, please, Chieftain Urien.”

Urien stepped into the center of the gathering. “This is in fact why I have called this meeting: to seek retribution for this grievous and wrongful injury upon my beloved wife. Camilla of the South Saxons—no doubt acting under the authority of her father King Ælle—had set out to attack Chieftainess Gyanhumara on what was clearly bad information regarding Gyanhumara’s travel plans, and Chieftainess Morghe fell victim instead. She could have died!”

The noise from the others, which had been growing louder during Urien’s speech, reached vehement proportions by the time he was finished.

No surprise there. Arthur would have joined them if he could have afforded to let his self discipline slip any further than it already had.
