After Eldenath had walked her to her mother’s cottage in their grounds, and said good night, Aïcha still felt useless, and decided to head towards the walk-in wig wardrobe, which contained all her mother’s wigs, given by her fans, after she lost her hair. Kat didn’t want it in the main house, as it contained hundreds of wigs and took up a lot of space. But Aïcha, had a gift, and that was to style her mother’s wigs for her forthcoming world tour.
After spending hours inside an isolation cell with Jarad, Alexand was relieved when her mother Inajda finally joined them in the cell. Unfortunately, Alexand learnt very quickly that Inajda was not there for her own protection but was being held as a prisoner due to her association with Anya Ranyevzsky, the woman Alexand had warned her about.
Anya managed to get some sleep around four in the morning, after her guardians, Katherine and Alexand had gone back to bed. She is dreaming of her mother, walking with her along the treelined Vorontsovskiy Park.
Whilst Anya was unconscious, Inajda had retrieved all that she needed from her ex hideout, aware that she could never use it again, and that the Amanojuko should not have access to it or know it existed. She had planted a series of invisible bombs around the edges of her old apartment complex and she, Alexand and their rescued ex Haernyara, retreat to the safety of the adjacent street.
Future Katherine takes Inajda to Nan Ha, to be with a very ill Alexand. Katherine watches from the trees, as Inajda makes her way down into the village, towards her brother’s house. Inajda turns around just in time to see Katherine dematerialise back to her future world.
