I Became the Tutor of the Royal Twins - Chapter 226
Stepping forward from one corner of the room, the old mage broke the long silence with one strike of his long cane.
This long, white-bearded old man was the same mage Sera met at the imperial villa.
“Yes, I must convey my gratitude for what you did for me last time. I am Sera Popo, I was asked to visit Their Highnesses today.”
When Sera recognized him and formally introduced herself as well, Roward nodded to the other mage standing next to him to say hello to Sera.
But the young mage who had orange curly hair and brown eyes, seemingly a little tactless, stood distantly.
It wasn’t until Roward lightly hit his cane against the young mage’s foot that she got startled and bowed deeply.
“I am Araella. As an imperial mage, I am also here to assist during Their Highnesses’ manifestation.”
“Are Their Highnesses in bed?”
Then, the answer came from the twins themselves in bed.
“Sera…! Is Sera there?!”
Sera walked towards the bed inside the room where she heard their voices.
Rosé and Ferre lay on their bed, their plump little faces red and puffy. They waved their hands in hello to her.
“It’s really Sera’s voice!”
“Sera, you came…!”
People said that the manifestation of a child’s mana was a cause for joy, but Sera was sad to see that they looked very sick right now.
Sera quickly pulled a chair next to the bed and sat down. Using both hands, she caressed one each of Rosé and Ferre’s cheeks.
“Are Your Highnesses doing alright?”
“Noooo. It huuuurts.”
“Me too, it hurts.”
With their eyes neither opened nor closed, Rosé and Ferre whined about their pain.
“Me and Ferre have very very high fevers.
“Hyung can’t heal us with his divine power.”
“The mages said that me and Ferre are gonna be sick for four more nights.”
“It’s so hard. I wanted to see Sera soooo much.”
Perhaps because they had lots to say, but the children chattered on even as they were bedridden.
Sera placed her hands on the children’s foreheads and gave them a gentle smile.
But she soon winced. They were much warmer than she had expected.
Noticing her reaction even when their visions had gotten blurry, the children giggled.
“Sera, our heads are hot, right?”
“Indeed, you’re both boiling. You must be in a lot of pain.”
Letting out a sigh as she spoke worriedly, Sera looked around for something she could use to cool off the children.
Soon, she found some wet towels and a basin on a table nearby. Walking towards it, she rolled up her sleeves.
After soaking it and squeezing it hard, she returned to the children’s side and placed the towels on their foreheads. Both Rosé and Ferre giggled.
“But Sera, this isn’t gonna work.”
“What do you mean, Your Highness Ferre?”
“You’ll know soon too, Sera.”
Was it because their temperatures were too high?
But not long later, she understood what they meant.
She had confirmed it with her own eyes just how things had started floating around in the room.
As time passed, Rosé and Ferre’s wet towels slowly slipped away from their foreheads.
Then, the towels gradually shook and transformed in appearance. Rather, most things in the room transformed.
Some looked like Pororing the squirrel, hearts, ice cream, and many other things.
Entranced by the astounding transformation, Sera stared blankly and unknowingly smiled. Rosé and Ferre added an explanation.
“Our mana manifestation turns the things around us into things that we dream of or want to happen.”
“What you dream of or want to happen?”
“Yeah. Me and Rosé want to eat ice cream and see Pororing. That’s why those things transformed like that. I think this one turned into a heart because we like Sera!”
“Sera, is there anything you want to dream about or do, too?”
At Rosé’s prompt, Sera looked at what once was a wet towel, which was now a heart shape.
Something she dreamed about or wanted to experience. While thinking about those words quietly, she thought of that person as well.
There was once a time when she dreamed that her unrequited love would become requited.
But such a thing was impossible. She would never be able to stand next to Helios. Her feelings would never be reciprocated.
Even if they did reciprocate each other’s feelings, she had vowed to herself not to even think about what could happen next.
She was very well aware that she would only drag him down.
At the terrible imagination, a lonely smile found its way to Sera’s lips.
Seeing her like this, Rosé and Ferre tilted their heads to the side.
“Sera, what’re you thinking?”
Perhaps because she thought of Helios out of nowhere, but from Rosé and Ferre’s faces, his face faintly overlapped.
Caressing the children’s heads lightly, Sera answered.
“Mm… I was thinking about a dream of mine.”
“What kind of dream?”
Widening their eyes, the twins were excited to hear her answer. However, Sera shook her index finger.
And, she persuaded Rosé and Ferre in a calm voice.
“It’s a secret. My dream is more like a bit of greed I’ve been harboring. And unlike your magic, my dream can’t ever come true.”
“Ah, it’s a secret. That’s too bad.”
Feeling sad, Rosé and Ferre pouted and sulked.
However, the words that followed hit Sera hard on the head.
It gave her a huge shock, as if she had truly taken the blow of a sledgehammer to the head.
