Madame is a common woman, but she wishes for more and she thinks she deserves more.
Madame and her husband get invited to an evening reception but she doesn't have anything to wear.
Madame's husband ends up buying her a dress but she is not satisfied. She goes to her friend and asks to borrow her necklace, which her friend allows her to.
Can I borrow your necklace?
Madame has everything she wanted for the dance after asking for it all. She is now having fun at the dance.
Madame lost the necklace her friend let her borrow. Her and her husband have to make money to buy a new one so her friend doesn't get mad.
Madame worked for ages to pay back the necklace so her friend could get it back. Madame saw her friend one day and her friend told her that her old necklace wasn't real, so Madame ended up working for nothing.
