Mathilde Loisel lived with her husband. She wishes that she had the lifestyle of the rich because she believes that its what she deserves. She always dreams about having luxury in her life just like the rich.
But i have nothing to wear!!
Mr.Loisel got his wife an invitation to a rich party. Madame Loisel gave him a reaction he wasnt hoping for. She was upset and said she shouldnt go because she had nothing to wear.
Madame Loisel had a great time at the party with her new dress that her husband gave her the money for, and the necklace that she borrowed from her rich friend. She stayed at the party till late while her husband fell asleep.
I cant find it!! what are we going to do??
After they returned home Madame Loisel told her husband that she had lost the necklace!! They looked in all of their things and found no sign of it. Mr.Loisel went out searching for it till very late at night and still could not find it.
The Loisels replaced the necklace with a similar one that they had to borrow lots of money from people for, with Mathides friend never knowing. They had to move into an attic, do their own work, get more jobs, and more in order to pay everything off. It took them 10 years to do so.
One day after all of the money had been paid off, Mathilde had seen her old friend and figured she would tell her the truth about the necklace. When she did so, her friend had told her that it was a false and worth only 400 franks at most!!
