Some days later, when Edna arrives in the dining hall for dinner, she is shocked to learn that Robert  is leaving that night for Mexico. After dinner, she returns alone to her cottage, upset. Robert stops at  her cottage on his way to the dock. Edna chastises him for his haste and secrecy; he offers no  apology or excuse but asks her not to be angry with him. As he walks away, Edna realizes that she is  in the midst of the same sort of obsessive infatuation she experienced in her youth. Robert's sudden departure reveals that he has begun falling in love with Edna. His overly formal  goodbye; his blurted statement that he was looking forward to seeing her in New Orleans; and his  sudden, secret resolve to leave attest to an emotional motivation for his trip.
