The introduction of Loisel and her absolutely horrid personality. She is not content with anything she has and she is always wanting more. She doesn't Appreciate the little things in life like having a made or having food on the table she thinks she is entitled to everything in the world and its not fair that she only has a moderately sized home and a loving husband.
Are you serious you lost her necklace!
The inciting action is when she is invited to the ball. She has no appreciation of what her husband went through to do this for her all she can do is beg for more and more and its still not enough.
The rising action is everything that led up to her losing the necklace. She makes her husband buy her a 400 francs dress. She has to borrow a diamond necklace from her friend and all of this just to overdress for the occasion.
She is so distracted by herself that she doesn't notice losing something thats not hers. She loses her friends necklace and doesn't even notice until she gets home. She is so selfish and self absorbed and its coming back to cost her.
Oh.. my.. gosh.. I lost her necklace. What are we gonna do!
And to fix her mistake she does.... absolutely nothing. She sits at her home while her husband goes through so many ways of finding something that SHE lost and all she can do is cry and lay down.
her and her husband work for ten years to pay for the diamond necklace that they replaced. All to find out that the necklace they lost was painted and worth a million times less than what they payed.
