time later, L'once tells Edna that he saw Robert in New Orleans
before leaving for Mexico. Upon hearing this, Edna wants to know
every detail bout this meeting and asks many questions.
The summer is nearly over and one day Mlle. Reisz meets Edna on
the beach. They begin to talk about the Lebron family and Edna finds
out that the two brothers have a history of confrontation and that
Victor is his mother's favorite. Mlle. Reisz gives Edna her address
in New Orleans and urges her to visit when she returns.
Although the others in Edna’s immediate circle of friends, and her husband
too, understand that she misses Robert, it is only Mlle. Reisz that recognizes Edna’s deeper feelings for the young Robert. She senses that when the holiday is over and the party returns to New Orleans, Edna
might need a sympathetic friend to confide in, so she gives Edna her address, urging her to visit.
