Relics of Camelot teaser #3

It's that time of the week, which means time for a new goodie from my Legendary Universe! This week I've got another teaser from RELICS OF CAMELOT. Camelot its self is almost like a character of it's own with a fascinating back story that I can't wait to see how it unfolds.
Enjoy the teaser and be sure to head over to my site to see this week's quote drop CLICK HERE

She pushed the door open, slid through and closed it, leaned against the hard wood and let out a deep sigh of relief.
A feminine voice cleared her throat. Aliana’s eyes shot up to meet the pale sunlight eyes of a tall woman with very dark honey colored hair and a motherly smile. She was standing beside the small table and chair by the lit fireplace.
Aliana looked around the room quickly to be sure it was hers. “Forgive me, but I am in my room, right?”
The woman smiled, a throaty laugh escaping her. The woman’s long face was slightly familiar, but she couldn’t figure out why.
“Yes,” she said amusement in her tone. “I am Queen Igraine. My son and Merlin were telling me about you after my return earlier today.”
The blood drained from Aliana’s face. This was Arthur’s mother! She curtsied quickly not wanting to offend such a powerful woman.
Jeeze this day just keeps getting better and better!
“I see I have startled you. Please sit down.” She waved her hand to the chair by the crackling fire.
Aliana steeled herself, pushed away from the door and went to the woman’s side, but didn’t sit. “I am fine, thank you. You just surprised me.”
Her laughing sun eyes crinkled with her mirth. “I was on my way to see to dinner when Sir Gawain and Sir Percival brought in a man who looked in dire need of healer and a remedy for drunkenness. They told me what happened and I simply had to meet such a brave young woman.”
“Um…” For the second time today, Aliana couldn’t think of what to say.
The queen’s long face softened even more. “Please do not feel uncomfortable by my presence. My son has told me you will be staying with us for a while. You seem to have made quite the impression on many people since your arrival.” The queen headed towards the door. “Then I will not keep you any longer. I hope we will have some time to talk tomorrow.”
Aliana nodded and the queen left looking satisfied. Though why she was, Aliana had no clue.
“What was that all about?” she asked Dagg as soon as he became his normal self.
“I think we just met a piece of the puzzle we have been missing.”
Aliana wheeled around to the Dragon who was perched on the top of the chair. “Say what?”
His lips pulled back, amused. “You didn’t feel it did you?”
“Feel what?”
“The air humming around the queen.”
Aliana straightened trying to recall it, but failed. “No. What does that have to do with anything?”
Dagg jumped from his perch, hovering before her. “She’s a Dragon. A Golden Dragon to be precise.”

Now you've seen it, and I hope you've enjoyed it. I am still up in the air about what I want to do for next week's teasers so if you have any burning desire to see something, please let me know :)
