Doctors can not help her and she is sent to a private school in Sodrovni. Mary is not happy at the private school and she escapes. She joins the Robertson Circus and stays with them for some time. Until she hears from Stanislas Sainclair that Alex Wappendorf might be able to help her. Wappendorf is working on a rocket to reach a planet that might be the cause of all Marys trouble. Mary decides to join Wappendorf in the rocket. They reach an area with many globes.

Meanwhile an artist called Augustin Desombres has ran away from the busy world and buys an empty building on the Plateau of Aubrac. He starts painting murals. Soon he find himself on the same globes as Mary.
