And Ch¯ri, her twenty-five year-old protege and lover, do not care a thing about the future. He thrives in their luxurious velvet decorated bubble, where L¯a teaches everything she can. But when Cheri's real mother decides that it is time for him to marry the young Edm¯e and finally become an adult will actually catch up with both L¯a and Ch¯ri.
