Chapter Text

Charles was finally going home and he could not wait, the only thing that could make him happier was if Camilla would be there with him. Instead, he had to put up a stupid show with Diana to convince everyone in the country that their marriage was still working.

Charles was still in a lot of pain and all Diana could do was talking about other patients she had met, laughing at him and telling him to stop complaining.

"I am here to do this stupid thing, at least you could stop complaining so much" - Diana was looking at Charles, who was struggling to put on his shirt. She was annoyed about the situation and it was clear that they could not stand each other anymore and it was becoming impossible to put up a smiling face and pretend they were happy together.

"Complaining? You had done nothing else since you arrived. Do you think I want to do this? Do you think I want to spend my time with someone who doesn't even care that I am hurt and in pain? This was not my idea, I don't want to do it either so stop talking and let's get over this quickly so we can both go where we want, with whom we want" - Charles looked at Diana in the eyes when he said the last remark and he knew she had understood what he had meant. Diana looked angry and surprised, she hated Charles, but she was jealous. Jealous of him and Camilla, their relationship, the way Charles talked about her, the way his face lit up when he talked about her and saw her. She was jealous because he had never looked at her that way.

After a couple of hours, Charles was finally home at Highgrove and he could not wait until he could see Camilla again in 15 minutes. When she arrived Charles went immediately to her and kissed her deeply and for the first time since Camilla had left the hospital he smiled. Charles was still in the suit he had left the hospital with and Camilla thought he could not be very comfortable. Together they went to his bedroom and she helped him change. Charles was very grateful he had her there to help him and he could not smile thinking how much more he enjoyed being undressed and dressed by Camilla than by some man of his staff.

"I love you darling" - Camilla kissed her Prince and smiled.

"Why thing can't be easier? I want to be with you darling, every day, every hour and every second of my life. My life is a mess without you, I am not happy without you" - his life at home was hell, he was unhappy and he knew Diana was also unhappy, they made each other miserable and they spent all their time fighting and he was tired of fighting. He just wanted to be happy and only Camilla could make him happy.

He did not want depressing thought to invade his mind, now he only wanted to enjoy Camilla's presence and love. They kissed each other deeply and Charles started to caress her leg, they enjoyed themself for a minute, until Charles' hand started to move higher on Camilla's leg and at that point, Camilla broke the kiss.

"Darling we can't, you are injured" - Charles was looking at Camilla with his puppy blue eyes, Camilla smiled, kissed him, but took his hand into hers and kissed it.

"I miss you darling and I am fine" - Charles tried to kiss Camilla passionately, but she stopped him.

"I miss you too darling, but you just got an operation. I promise you when you'll be better I'll make it up to you" - Charles nodded, he knew she was right. He was still too weak and in pain to do anything, but that did not stop him from wanting and desiring his darling Camilla.

"I love you my darling" - Charles kissed Camilla softly, caressing her cheek gently and losing himself in her amazing blue eyes.

"I am glad you are here. My family did not even bother to came to see me, the only one was Diana and just because she was forced to and all she did was laughing at me, looking at me as if I was overreacting and complaining without a reason. They all think I am just a spoiled man and I am so done with it. I feel so lucky to have you by my side my darling. Thank you" - Charles laid down on the bed and stretched his arm asking Camilla to join him. She gladly laid down next to him with her head resting on his good shoulder.

"I know how you're feeling my love, I know you are in a lot of pain and you don't have to be brave with me. You can complain as much as you want, because that's what love is about, supporting each other and suffering together. I am here for you, to help you, cheer you up and love you" - Camilla kissed Charles and he smiled happy. He always felt loved and safe with Camilla, she was his sunshine, his home, his everything.

Camilla stood up to put on some classical music, she then went back to Charles and for a while they just cuddle in silence, kissing each other from time to time. They never needed word when they were together, they did not need to fill the silence because they were so sure and so secure in their love that their heart and eyes spoke for them.

"How are you feeling darling?" - asked Camilla after a while, looking up to her prince with sweet eyes.

"I think the medication is kicking in so it is not that bad" - Camilla smiled and kissed Charles' neck a couple of times, he smiled and kissed her hair. He was really happy to have her at his side, she was caring, loving and understanding.

"Thank you for being here darling. I love you" - Camilla kissed him a couple of times, each time more deeply.

"You don't have to thank me. I love you too Charles" - they both smiled at each other and fell asleep in each other's arm happy that they had each other.
