"Princess, just what do you do to the prince?" I ask worriedly. "The prince has been searching for you for one whole week!"

"Nothing, Ianthe. How many times do I have to tell you? Stop worrying! We're simply playing." The corners of her mouth tip up. "Why is it so hot here? The... what's it called... what's the point of heating everything up?"

"Your highness, maybe you can consider tuning it down... a bit. That's the sun."

We are on the street! We don't want every single one on the street to know we're out of this world. Even a three year old knows what the sun is.

"Well, why do we even need this...'sun'? We survive just well without this sun underwater!"

"The sun is a vital part for photosyn... Well the sun is just very important, your highness."

I feel like answering a kindergartner. 'Why is the sky blue? Why is there a moon and a sun? Why can't we see the moon in the daytime?'

"Well, I find this heat intolerable. Let's find a nice little cafe. There."

While waiting for our drinks in the shadows this cafe provides us, I notice something. Cordelia is sweating a little too much. Her forehead is peppered with beads of sweat. I have never seen her like that in the short days we have been travelling. Not when we are shopping. Not when we are escaping from raging villagers on horseback. This is abnormal.

"Your highness, are you feeling unwell?"

"What do you think? Can't you see? I feel so hot! The heat!"

Sweat continues to drop from her face to the table. She looks like she is melting. This is not normal. I place my hand on her forehead to feel her temperature. She is burning up. She swat my hand away in annoyance.

"Princess, let's go back to the hotel. You're not feeling well!"

lentine?" I gasp in shock.

"Yes?" The gentleman in front of me tilts his head in confusion.

Now that I take a close look at the gentleman in front of me, I see the similarity between Lord Valentine and this warm looking gentleman. The eyes are of the same shape, the nose is just as straight. The gentleman in front of me is of the same build and height as Lord Valentine. Why didn't I recognize him on first look? Maybe the similarity I felt was because the gentleman is in fact Lord Valentine? No. That's not it.

"Ah. Ianthe, don't tell me you don't recognize me. I'm hurt! I thought you'd at least recognize your own tutor!" He smiles teasingly.

I clear my throat in embarrassment, no doubt my face is as red as a tomato.

"Why are you here, Lord Valentine?"

"Now, I could not leave my dear apprentice facing Cordelia's wrath alone, could I?" He winks. "Go search for a few novels you like. My treat."

It feels like my peaceful time under the sea as his apprentice again. I smile genuinely for the first time after a long time.

"I won't hold back, my lord."

He gives a small chuckle and says, "I think my pocket can handle that."
