Mathilde is extremely upset and depressed because of how poor she thinks she is.
Oh no! What have I done?!
Mathilde went to the ball that her and her husband were invited to. She was happy here because she got what she wanted which was a brand new dress.
I am so tired of working
Mathilde goes to her friends house to borrow a diamond necklace for the ball.
Mathilde leaves the ball and then realizes her friends diamond necklace is gone! She has no idea where it could have gone and is panicing badly.
Mathilde had to go work super hard to try to pay off the 36,000 necklace she had to buy for her friend. She has never worked this hard in her life.
Mathilde sees her friend, the one who let her borrow the necklace, 10 years later. She tells her how she had to buy her a brand new necklace because she lost the original one. Her friend then tells her that it was only 500$!
