(Setting is an attic and workshop of an artificial flower-maker. It is
poorly lighted by means of a candle placed on the work-table. The
ceiling slopes abruptly at the back allowing space to conceal a man.
On the right is a door, on the left a fireplace. Pamela is discovered
at work, and Joseph Binet is seated near her.)
Pamela, Joseph Binet and later Jules Rousseau.
Monsieur Joseph Binet!
Mademoiselle Pamela Giraud!
I plainly see that you wish me to hate you.
The idea! What? And this is the beginning of our love--Hate me!
Oh, come! Let us talk sensibly.
You do not wish, then, that I should express how much I love you?
Ah! I may as well tell you plainly, since you compel me to do so, that
I do not wish to become the wife of an upholsterer's apprentice.
Is it necessary to become an emperor, or something like that, in order
to marry a flower-maker?
No. But it is necessary to be loved, and I don't love you in any way
In any way! I thought there was only one way of loving.
So there is, but there are many ways of not loving. You can be my
friend, without my loving you.
I can look upon you with indifference--
You can be odious to me! And at this moment you weary me, which is
I weary her! I who would cut myself into fine pieces to do all that
If you would do what I wish, you would not remain here.
And if I go away--Will you love me a little?
Yes, for the only time I like you is when you are away!
And if I never came back?
I should be delighted.
