Finnelan has one of her usual mornings during her guide to Professor Ursula. During the meeting with the usual staff of Luna Nova, Finnelan notices something strange in one of the concierge. Later, Finnelan is called by the headmistress Holbrooke who reveals a tablet supplied by a new teacher who is engaged in a modern "magical science" which annoys and worries Finnelan. While preparing for her class, Finnelan is observed by Croix Meridies, who is preparing for her arrival at Luna Nova.
