It has been a month after Sonic defeated Merlina and found out he was really King Arthur, Calibern, Nimue, and the knights of the round table have helped Sonic get used to being a king and how to rule the kingdom until one morning. "Wait I have to get married?!" Sonic asked shocked. Nimue nodded and said "I apologize for this being so sudden sire, but a King cannot rule his kingdom without a Queen by his side"
"Well if that's one of the rules around here then it's okay. So...how am I supposed to find somebody to be my Queen?" said Sonic a little more relaxed. Sir Gawain was standing next to Sonic's throne, then suddenly knelt in front of Sonic and said "Sire I may have a suggestion, we shall have a ball here at the castle to celebrate your coronation, we can invite many young women and you may choose which of them shall be your Queen"
Nimue was excited and said "That's a grand idea! What do you think sire?" Nimue and Gawain both watched as Sonic sat in his throne thinking about Gawain's idea. Suddenly, Sonic smiled then stood up and said "I like it! Gawain we're going with your plan! Get the other knights and spread the word anyway and as fast as you can!" Gawain bowed with a smile and said "Yes Sire! but when shall we have the ball? we will need time to prepare the castle"
Sonic thought for a few minutes then looked at Gawain and said "The ball will be a week from today and all available women are welcome, no matter how rich or poor they are! now spread the word" Gawain quickly rose and said "At once your highness!" then happily ran out of the throne room. Unknown to anyone, Sir Percival had been hiding in the shadows listening the whole time.
A week later, Sonic was in his bedroom wearing a crown and cape while looking at himself in a mirror and asked "Do I really have to wear this?" not really liking his cape. Caliburn looked at Sonic angry and said "Of course you do! As King you must be poised and dignified at gatherings like this, a king wears a crown as a symbol of his rule" Sonic was suprised at how important this was then said "Okay I get it sorry, but can I please lose the cape? it itches!"
Caliburn sighed and said "No! The cape is a symbol of peace, when you wear it it lets your subjects know they have an honorable king and will bring peace to the kingdom" Suddenly, Sir Lancelot came into the bedroom then knelt in front of Sonic and said "Please forgive me Sire, but the guests are arriving" Sonic smiled and said "It's fine Lance, thanks for the heads-up" then took a deep breathe to relax and said "Looks like I'd better get this party started!" then followed Sir Lancelot to the castle's ball room.
The ball room was filled with guests talking to each other and some were eating the food that was set out. There was many women all wearing their fanciest dresses and hoping to be Sonic's choice for his queen. Among the women Sir Percival was wearing a beautiful light purple-almost-white dress with her hair down and over her shoulders and finally a pearl necklace on her neck.
The royal knights were keeping watch for any suspicious guests plotting to kill their king. Sir Galahand saw Percival in her dress then went to her and asked "Percival are you here to be chosen as queen?!" Percival blushed while smiling a little and said "Yes Galahand, I learned first-hand how selfless and kindhearted the King is, and since that moment I've hoped to rule by his side"
Sir Galahand was suprised but smiled and said "You'd make an excellent queen Percival, I wish you luck on winning the King's heart" Percival blushed more and said "Thank you Galahand, your kindness knows no bounds" suddenly, trumpets started playing then all the guests looked towards a staircase. Sonic was coming down the stairs wearing his crown and cape while holding Caliburn.
When Sonic got to the bottom he smiled and said "Thank you everyone for coming to the ball, this' to celebrate not only me becoming your new King but also to discover who shall be my Queen! So please enjoy yourselves" Everyone clapped and cheered at Sonic's words then went back to their own business. Sonic sat at his thrown then looked at Caliburn and asked "Okay oh great sword, how am I supposed to choose a queen?"
Caliburn sighed and said "It's simple, have all the women form a line in front of you, you will get to meet each one and after that you shall make your decision" Sonic was suprised and said "That's it? I don't get to talk or know about them a little first?!" Caliburn was getting annoyed and said "No, you must choose by their fist meeting appearance" Sonic sighed and said "Okay fine, but I still don't like it"
After an hour, Sonic stood up and said "I hope you have all had a good time, now all the women must form a line and I will choose my queen" All the women did as Sonic said and were very excited. Percival was also in the line but started to get nervous, after 10 women it was finally her turn. Percival blushed as she slowly approached the throne then knelt and said "My name is Percival, I hope to become your queen sire"
Sonic just sat in his throne speechless, he couldn't believe the woman in front of him was the same knight he fought and rescued when he had to fight the fake King Arthur. Suddenly, Percival got up and left then the next woman in line came to the throne, Sonic was doing his best to pay attention and not seem rude but he couldn't stop thinking about how beautiful Percival was.
After Sonic met all the women, he got up from his thrown and said "It was a pleasure to meet all of you, but I can only choose one to be my Queen...after thinking very hard I have made my choice" Everyone stared as Sonic paused, Percival was nervous hoping she would be his choice. Suddenly, Sonic smiled and said "People of Camelot, your new Queen shall be... Lady Percival!"
Everyone clapped and cheered as Sonic walked to Percival. Percival was shocked that Sonic chose her and was so happy that she began crying. Sonic smiled as he took Percival's hand then knelt in front of her and said "Lady Percival, you have served me well as a knight and a friend, I would be honored to have you as my queen!" Percival was still crying but slowly nodded her head and said "Yes Sire, I happily accept to be your queen!"
Sonic stood up then suddenly pulled Percival into a kiss, Percival was suprised and blushed but slowly kissed back. The guests all clapped and cheered for the couple, and a month later Sonic and Percival were married and became Camelot's new King and Queen.
