The protagonist is a coming-of-age kid who lives too much in his head and we see him faced with disappointment and anger. He made a choice after what he saw about the girl and abandoned his love for her.
She asks whether he's attending the following Saturday's bazaar, which is named Araby, and expresses her own wish to go, but says, regretfully, she must attend an event for her convent.
