The honeymoon is short-lived, as Lucha and Jameson begin drifting apart in married life. Jameson leaves the Jet Propulsion Lab to join a private firm creating a device that reads brainwaves. He wants to shift his focus from astrophysics to neuroscience. For once, Lucha does not recolor her hair, which gradually returns to its natural dark shade. She simultaneously loses interest in puppeteering and theater. In quiet desperation, she visits a fortune teller, who tells her to go home and wait for a phone call.

“The silent surprise of every next breath.
I want to live life like a book you can start anywhere,
that you find has no beginning
and no end.”
