"Raina is a excellent student, but requires a certain style of teaching. Not allowing her to ask questions or expecting her to practice embroidery instead of the normal lessons will not keep her attention." Kyera explained tactfully. The Emperor seemed intensely curious. Kyera knew she was going to have to tread lightly. The Emperor himself had chosen these tutors. To call them out directly was not going to go well.
"I see. Why did you feel you couldn't ask questions, Princess?" he asked seriously. His power was flustered and slightly putting pressure on Raina. Kyera frowned and kept her power shielding the little one, pushing back on him. His power disappeared the moment it touched him and he realized it was happening. The Emperor's gaze dashed to Kyera who did not avoid eye contact, the fire in her eyes a clear warning.
"It wasn't that I couldn't ask questions. I could ask as many as I liked." Raina replied and he sighed a bit relieved. A annoyed glance redirected at Kyera. "But the teachers never answered me. When I asked them they said my cousin's tutoring was more important to the kingdom and I should know my place." Raina replied her voice dropping a bit to a monotone note. His eyes widened slightly and Kyera folded her arms her eyes obviously rebuking him.
"Your Place?" he asked and Raina nodded.
"I am a princess. I don't have to be smart, just pretty and graceful." Raina explained. Kyera's blood began to bubble, she restrained the urge to speak. The Emperor looked thoughtful.
"That is true, you don't have to be. However if your interested I see no reason you should not have the chance to learn." he replied gently. Kyera watched him annoyance in her eyes.
"That isn't quite true. If she doesn't have the same teaching as the other children, she will have a hard time during the Heir games. She's the eldest and has not been taught to read." The Empress Pointed out rather disgusted by his passiveness to this issue. She had no intention of leaving the child in that situation.
"I will talk to the Teachers and ensure they pay attention to her as well. Does that sound better, Raina? Please make sure you tell me if things don't improve." he replied making it rather clear to her. Raina nodded obediently but the Empress Dowager did not look convinced.
"No. That isn't good enough. She is too far behind. We need to get someone to privately tutor her." The Empress Dowager insisted as the meal was placed at the table. The maid began filling their plates while the conversation continued. The Emperor and Empress Eve seemed to both agree with her.
"Actually, if I may?" Kyera offered gaining their attention. The royals seemed to acknowledge her so Kyera continued. "I was trained in basic learning, history, strategy, and manners as well as medicine. My teacher is staying in a village near here. I am certain he would be happy to teach such a bright child." Kyera replied and Clovis looked at her curiously. He had a feeling he knew where she was going with this. Seeing hesitation on his father's face he decided to lend a hand.
"Do you mean Elder Daxin? He would be a excellent choice, but I am not sure he would agree. As brilliant as my daughter is, he would need further persuasions." he points out "Afterall he taught the Forest's Princess, the one who leads her people, not a Princess with a hidden destiny." his words were careful and deliberate, baiting his father's pride. Even Kyera saw that clearly and didn't correct him.
"If it be Persuasions he needs, I will speak to him. If my son wishes this man teach his daughter, we will make it so." The Emperor replied and Raina smiled her eyes shined with excitement. Kyera nodded.
"Thank you, My Lord Emperor. I appreciate your help in this matter." Kyera replied humbly, granted, in truth all she had to do was ask Daxin and he would gladly agree. There would be nothing to it, but at the same time making the Emperor feel as though he had done it himself would help their cause.
