"Belle...your friendship means a great deal to me. I've never met anyone as caring as you are. Might I have a keepsake from you? Something to remind me of you while I'm gone?"
"Of course, Henri...But I don't have anything to give you."
"That would be perfect. It's so small, I can carry it with me wherever I go."
"A sou? It's a bit odd, I know, but It was actually a keepsake for me-a memory of my home and my father."
"Thank you, Belle. Thank you so much."
Belle decided to go back to Nevermore where she could talk to her friend Henri. He tells her that he has to return home and asks for something of hers. Belle doesn't know that this is a trick and giving him the third thing could trap her in the book,
The book is a trap for Belle. If she eats or leaves three things in there, she becomes bound to the book with no way to escape. She gives Henri the sou and that is the third thing. His expression reveals he was apart of the plan and Belle is now trapped.
I chose this scene because it develops the main conflict. The scene does not directly show this, but the "author" of Nevermore is known as the countess to Belle. To others she is Death. She is the one responsible for trapping Belle in the book by using lies and deception. The conflict is person vs person and the solution is unknown as of now.
