The scene opens with a conversation between the Governess and her servant. The Governess tells the servant that she has lost her virginity and that she is in love with another woman. The servant tries to calm her down by telling her that the situation with the other woman is not as bad as she thinks it is. He then tells her that he has lost his virginity, and that he is still thinking about her. She is shocked and asks why he did not notice this before. She then asks him if he is going back to the place where the Chief is staying. He says that there is no way he can find anyone else to stay with. She asks him what he is doing, and he says that he feels a weight lifted off of him after he dumped her. He asks the servant if he can go away, and the servant tells him that he can stay single until he feels better.
