Numb3rs Fic: Not the Queen  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #359 - Queen

Title: Not the Queen
Pairing/Characters: Charlie/Amita
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Season 6
Summary: England doesn't turn out the way Amita expected
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

When they moved to England, Don joked that Charlie and Amita would be greeted like math royalty.

Amita had spent so many years as Charlie's student, then his assistant and finally - in her mind - a peer.

Now she arrived on foreign shores as his wife.

They were always introduced together: Dr. Eppes and his beautiful wife Amita. Only most of the math conversations took place after the men had extracted Charlie from her side, excluding her.

It hit her after a while. Charlie was being treated like a king, but everyone viewed her as a royal consort - not the queen.

And this is one of the reasons I couldn't buy Amita settling down with Charlie. She would always be second place to her husband.

What LG said. And you might have made some Amita bunnies currently hopping around in my head perk up a little.

/claps/ Love this, hon. So realistic and so bittersweet.

I can see why this would happen - it's Charlie after all who has received the invitation - but that doesn't make it sting any the less.

This was a nice, unexpected, treatment of the prompt!
