My husband and I live in a somewhat small house, with a maid. I wish to have bigger house, but I didn't marry into a rich family. My only wish in life was do be wealthy.
My names is Mathilde Loisel, I've always dreamed of having what I've always wanted in life. But, I never got it because I am not as wealthy as I want to be. My husband is not a wealthy man, but he gives me what he can.
I went to a ball this evening, and when I arrived home, I had noticed that i lost the very expensive necklace that Madame Forestier let me borrow for this very event.
Me and my husband decided to tell Forestier that we had it in the shop for some reason so we can get the money to replace it in the time.
We spent 36,000 francs paying for the necklace, mainly from borrowing money. We spent 10 years paying back everyone who lent us money. We had to get rid of our maid and my husband had to get multiple jobs.
One day, I was out and I saw Madame Foestier, I told her the story of her necklace. After that, she told me that the necklace had only cost her 500 francs. Me and my husband had spent 10 years paying off the necklace when we could've told the truth.
