The next morning, the Governess goes to her room to purge her closet of all her "rabid fans" . The Governess tells Madame Wu that she's going to have to "purge this lot again" because she wants to "get over" what happened with Chester. She tells her that losing him was the "greatest agony" she'd ever experienced in her life, and she asks Madame Wu if she can "move on" if she doesn't "forget about" him. She also tells her to "keep out" of her life because she'll be lonely and depressed. She says that she can enjoy the solitude of being alone, but she warns Madame Wu to "put caution keep out" and not to be envious of her solitude. She then apologizes to Madame Wu, saying that her actions the night before were the result of a "recent heartbreak" and the "argea /talo amiosuggestio" thrown at her by Madame Wu. She hopes that Madame Wu isn't offended by her apology, but says that it's not her fault that she was dumped. She adds that she tried to save the relationship from Madame Wu but that she wasn't able to because Madame Wu didn't want her to. She's also upset that she spent so little time with her lover, and that he doesn "support" her in her acting. She wonders if people should "start individual parties" or "as separate dating" if they're still together. She suggests that they should "keep their individual identities" while "finding ways" to work together.
