The third, orphaned by Father Pusia, is sent by a messenger - and then sets off on another long journey.
Years pass, the children grow, the professor is not coming back. It soon becomes clear that the girls will have to help maintain the house. A ballet school is a chance to get a profession.

Paulinka straightened up and folded her hands.
- We, the three Fosyl sisters present here - she began with a church singing - swear and vow to do everything we can to make our name entered history, because it is only our surname and no one will say that we owe it to some grandparents.
She signaled to Petrovna, who quickly grabbed Pusia's hand and lifted it up.
"We vow," she said in such a low voice that it sounded very solemn. Then she whispered to Pusia, "You also say" we vow. "
- We vow. Pusia tried to say the word in the same tone, but it didn't work out, it sounded like a cat meowing.
