In her brilliant course Carolina strolled down the leafy avenues of trees in the Alameda: I, too, was there, seated on the dark corner of a bench. Everywhere she exuded happiness and good fortune, while I was gloomy, my soul full of bitterness and my heart dripping blood. I handed her footman a letter, and that night I went to the theater full of hope. Perhaps that night Carolina would look at me, perhaps she'd pay attention to my pallid face and feel pity for me Vain hopes! All night long I was unable to get Carolina's eyes to rest on me.
After a week I saw the light: the footman hadn't given her my letter. I doubled my persistence and finally succeeded in getting a girlfriend of hers to place in her hands a note written with all the tenderness and candor of a man who is truly in love. But, my God, Carolina received so many notes of that kind every day, she listened to so many declarations of love, she heard herself so praised by everyone from her parents to her servants, that she didn't deign to open my letter but handed it back without asking, even out of curiosity, who was writing to her.
Do you understand the terrible martyrdom of running madly day and night, delirious with love, after a woman who laughs, who doesn't feel, who doesn't love, who isn't even acquainted with the man who adores her? The contrast was always the same: she was a madcap, full of contentment, laughing and looking at the drama we call the world through a prism of illusions; and I, sad, desperate with a secret love that no one could understand, observed all people in the semidarkness cast by a devilish veil.

I saw some with a supple body, slim waist, and small feet; others hardy, of athletic build; those of a somber, romantic countenance; others with a laughing face of classic joy; but not one, not one of those flowers gliding by before my eyes, though I sensed their fragrance and touched their beauty, made my heart pound or a single notion of felicity germinate in my mind.
