Marguerite, à l'opposé, est une femme délicate, d'une douceur affectée, sournoise et avare. Elle provient d'une famille de propriétaires, dont on démolit les nombreux immeubles dans le quartier. Ils étaient voisins, tous deux veufs, et se sont mariés, lui à 65 ans, elle à 63, peut-être par peur de la solitude. Leur incompatibilité de tempérament ne tarde pas à se muer en sourde hostilité. Joseph, le chat d'Emile que Marguerite n'a jamais accepté, disparaît." translates as - Emile, a gruff old worker, is a straightforward man. Marguerite, on the other hand, is a delicate woman, with an affected sweetness, devious and avaricious. It comes from a family of owners, whose many buildings are demolished in the neighborhood. They were neighbors, both widowed, and were married, he at 65, she at 63, perhaps for fear of loneliness. Their incompatibility of temperament soon becomes a mute hostility. Joseph, Emile's cat Marguerite never accepted, disappears.
