As Mirette stormed out of the Tavern to get some fresh air, Oracle turned to face Emmanuel, "You should not fault your sister for the actions of another, Emmanuel. The closer we are to someone, the harder it is to see the darkness in their hearts. I should know." A dark look crossed Oracle's face as he continued speaking, "I was in a similar situation as your sister. I watched as my own brother grew more corrupt from the power growing inside of him, and yet I couldn't see it. Even when I witnessed my brother killing our father for his power, I refused to believe that he could do such a thing. By the time I was able to see my brother for the monster he really was, our entire civilization had been almost eradicated. My people, hundreds of thousands of years of civilization, burned to the ground because I was too blind to see what was before my very eyes. Sometimes it takes an earthshattering revelation to shatter the images of the people we love." The Seer's dark expression turned back towards Emmanuel as he finished his story, "I can tell you from experience that your sister probably feels bad enough that she could not stop her teacher before he destroyed your kingdom for the sake of his own power."
Oracle watched Mirette outside on the porch of the old Tavern, "I can tell you right now that your sister isn't under the influence of dark magic. In fact, near as I can tell, her love and devotion to you has probably rendered her immune to any kind of dark magic manipulation." The Seer sighed, "The tea, map, and Room are all on the house, I just ask that you take this last piece of advice to heart. Your sister has the makings of a powerful sorceress, but if these issues between you two continue to worsen, then she'll be in trouble. In an environment full of love, companionship and acceptance, magic becomes a tool that helps the world become a better place. However, if magic is met with stigma, fear, and suspicion, it will become a tool for suffering and hate. Right now your sister needs you, Emmanuel, but if you continue to hold her magic against her because of her teacher, then she will fall to the dark. Please, Emmanuel, I'd hate to see Mirette befall the same fate as my brother."
