Her answer to his proposal is to be given him that evening. Muzafter Mansur, infatuated by Mirza, seeks to prevent the meeting by promising to show her something if she will come to his apartment instead. By hypnotic power he gets her to go to his apartment, and during her stay there, Paul searches in vain. Muzaffer Mansur exercises a hypnotic influence over the American girl, and she is transported back hundreds of years to an ancient nunnery. Her guardian, enamored of her, succeeds in getting her away from the convent. While she is at her home, Mirza falls in love with a young knight. In a fit of jealousy her guardian orders the knight murdered, and his wishes are executed. When she witnesses the tragedy, Mirza plunges a dagger into her heart, and dies with her lover. Mirza next gazes into the crystal globe and sees reflected there, herself as she was in the days of the barbarians. Mirza's father has consented to give her in marriage to King Amede, in appreciation of assistance rendered against tribes invading the country. Mirza accompanies the warrior to the court of King Amede and on the way falls in love with her escort. He is apathetic, and she is given a vial of love potion by the witches, who direct her to give it to her escort. She does, and the effect is marvelous. Her love is at once reciprocated. Arriving at Amede's court, the king and the escort duel for the possession of Mirza. She offers to stand in the fire of the temple to be cleansed of earthly love. A maiden, devoid of earthly love, can pass through the flames unscathed. Mirza, in love with her escort, is consumed by the flames. The third story relates to Mirza's experiences in an Oriental garden. Paul eventually finds Mansur's card and subsequently leads the police to the latter's apartment, arriving in time to save Mirza, who is about to drink some poison offered her by Mansur.
