Upon Leonce's return to the cottage, he discovers Edna reclining on the hammock, and he asks, and then insists, that she go inside. However, Edna declines, recognizing that this is the first time where she has refused to comply with one of his demands.

Leonce had already gotten ready for bed, but he decides to sit on the rocking chair outside with a cigar and a glass of wine. As time passes, Edna starts to feel like she is losing her determination and becomes helpless once again. She stands up and goes inside to ask Leonce if he is coming to bed. He responds by saying that he will come inside once he has finished smoking his cigar.
