Madam Loisel is a middle class woman who doesn't really like her life but, she dreams of having luxuries in her life.

I don't want to go anymore...
This letter came for us!
Conflict- Man vs. Self
Here take this...
She doubts herself that will not look good at the party, so her husband buys her a dress, and then she asks her friend if she can borrow a necklace to go with the dress.
You can borrow this!
Madam Loisel and her husband arrive at the party. Madam Loisel looked the prettiest one there and she got many compliments. But, she was jealous of the women who had expensive fur scarfs. She was devastated and was hoping to have a life like this.
Shall we dance?
Later on, Madam Loisel and her husband had to leave. As they were returning home, Madam Loisel lost the necklace. She and her husband tried so hard to find it but, they could not. So, they bought an expensive one that looked just like the original to replace it. And for 10 years they kept paying for it.
Oh no! Where did you drop it?
Madam Loisel started to work hard and grew old. Then, one day, she saw her friend still looking beautiful and young. Madam Loisel told her that she lost the necklace and bought another one to replace it. And, her friend got confused, then her friend told Madam Loisel that the original was a cheap fake necklace. And Madam Loisel was left shocked.
