Calixta is not the only one who felt the overwhelming feeling of pure happiness, Alcee also experienced it. Therefore, when Alcee writes a letter to his wife he uses love and tender words. Chopin writes, “Alcee Laballiere wrote to his wife, Clarisse, that night. It was a loving letter, full of tender solicitude” (353). In other words, the same night after Alcee met with Calixta he wrote to his wife a loving letter. This behavior shows the freedom and overwhelming happiness that Alcee felt, these feelings of happiness left him satisfied enough that he would feel that love for his wife after he was cheating on her.
