Arobin embarrasses Edna with an emotional letter of apology for upsetting her the night before, and  this irritates her: The next day she feels as though she'd taken the kiss on her hand too seriously.  She writes a deliberately light and playful note in response. After that, they see each nearly every  day. Edna visits Mademoiselle Reisz, whose music always soothes her. She reveals her plan to move out  of Léonce's house and into a tiny rental house nearby, which she can afford due to her racetrack  winnings and sales of her drawings, and her desire to give an elaborate dinner party before moving  from her old house. Reading Robert's latest letter, Edna is ecstatic to learn that he is returning soon.  In response to Mademoiselle Reisz's questioning, Edna reveals that she loves Robert simply  because she does, and that when he is back she will do nothing more than be happy. Ironically, she is so happy at the news of his return that she sends a box of bonbons to her children
