She was one of those young women that seemed like they had everything, the looks and charming but really she had nothing. ¨ She was one of those pretty and charming girls born ¨. ¨ Her taste were simple because she had never been able to afford any other , but she was as unhappy as though she had married beneath her ¨ .
As she thought she had nothing , she then got invited to a wonderful ball but was hesitant to go as she had nothing to wear. ¨ And what do you suppose I am to wear at such an affair ? ¨ .
As the ball was approaching , the woman realized that she had no jewels. Her husband suggested ¨ Go and see Madame Forester and ask her to lend you some jewels. You know her quite well enough for that ¨.
The woman approached her old friend that is now very wealthy and asked ¨ Could you lend me this , just this alone ? ¨ ¨ Yes , of course ¨ her friend replied . She left the house with the diamond necklace as happy as she could ever be.
It was the night of the ball and she danced till she could not feel her feet, but then the unexpected happened. As they were headed home from the ball she realized the necklace was gone! ¨ I … I … I no longer got Madame Forester's necklace … ¨ .
The couple worked so hard to try and buy another necklace that look just like the old one. The did everything in their power from begging the jeweler for a lower price and working from sunup to sundown but finally they got a price that they could afford and it was for 18 thousand Frances. They gave back the necklace but years later told the truth. ¨ Oh , my poor Mahidle ! But mine was imitation . It was worth at the very most five hundred Frances ! … ¨
