Returning to London a little time later, Mary unexpectedly meets again with Percy when Percy appears on her house asking William to be his pupil. Fascinated by Percy, Mary starts a bohemian and torrid relationship with him, despite the opposition of her father and her stepmother, specially after to discover Percy as a married man with one little son.
