Impossible! You must write to your friend that you broke the clasp and that you are having it mended! That will give us time to turn round.
I have lost Madame Forestier's Necklace!!!
After much searching, they had found a replacement for the necklace for thirty-six thousand francs. Though the price would throw them into debt for many years, it would suffice.
Mathlide came to know what heavy housework was, and she aged.
Climax: Once Mathlide and her husband return home, she realizes that her friend's necklace is now missing. She begins to panic and look for the necklace.
Ten years later, she ran into her friend, Madame Forestier.
No, I am Mathlide Loisel.
But Madame, I do not know you.
Yes, I've had a pretty hard life. And that because of you!! Do you remember the diamond necklace I borrowed for the ball? I lost it.
I bought a replacement. You never noticed it, then! They were very similar.
What do you mean? You brought it back.
Falling Action: Mathlide and Loisel go to many jewelers in order to find a replacement necklace. They finally find a necklace that looks similar and decide to buy it, though the price would throw the Loisels into debt.
Oh, my poor Mathlide! Why, my necklace was paste! It was worth at most only five hundred francs!!!
Falling Action Cont.: The Loisels are thrown into poverty and Mathlide realizes what hard work really was.
My dear Mathlide! How you have changed!
Resolution: Mathlide meets with her friend Madame Forestier once again to tell her that her necklace was not the original. Madame Forestier then tells her that her troubles were for nothing and that her necklace was a cheap fake.
