Gwen smiled, seeing he was far too nervous. She thought about chiding him that the proper response was to say she looked nice as well, but she decided to be nice.
She gave an almost relived sign. "To be honest, I was a little nervous about having to sit in front of the queen all evening. What if I had done something completely embarrassing and she decided she didn't like me anymore." She smiled at him. She was nervous, still, but being with Arthur was very nice.
