EXPOSITION
The composed Alfredo had an argument with the modest Esperanza about their conflicting views of what seems to be an immoral act that Calixta did. This thereby lead to Esperanza hinting of not being the one to go out of her place, of not being the one who tried to sought another.
FALLING ACTION
The wedding happened, thus, he chose not to break his word and avoid social humiliation. A few years later, his job called for him to go to the town where Julia, who is still unmarried, lives.
RESOLUTION
During all his years of married life he had come to a closure after meeting Julia once again. He realized that the answers to his ‘what-if’ questions hardly interest him anymore; he understood that he had been looking up into a dead star all along.

Dead Star

Alfredo
-symbolizes the confusion and flaws of human.

Esperanza
-symbolizes hope and devotion, and being manipulated by the regenerative virtue of society.
