Oh, I wish I had nicer things! Everything I have is so drab and boring, everyone else has better things than I do!
I need money for a dress and jewelry!
I guess you can have the 400 francs I was saving for a hunting trip.
In the beginning of the story, we are introduced to the main character, Madam Loisel. She is ungrateful, selfish, and thinks of the life that she could've had. Loisel's husband seems kinds and does what he can to help her out.
Oh no! I've lost the necklace!
The initial conflict is when Madam Loisel needs money so she can buy a new dress. She wants a dress so that she can fit in with the other wealthy ladies.
Now I have to work to pay off the necklace.
The rising action was when Madam Loisel borrowed the diamond necklace from her friend and went to the party.
I've spent all these years working to pay off your necklace.
The climax of the story is when Loisel loses the necklace.
You have to make up an excuse to tell your friend or she will be mad!
The falling action is when she has to replace the necklace for her friend and work for ten years to pay off the price.
The resolution of the story is when Loisel sees her friend in the street one day and strikes up a conversation. She finds out that the necklace she lost was not worth very much in the first place and she worked ten years to pay it off for no reason.
