He and She go to a concert in a charming palace garden. It is a beautiful day and they both listen to the music; in his mind, the man repeats the verses that he wrote to her: "I pray to your eyes...". At the instant, he recognizes his friend from the military service in the violin player and the composition evokes in him all the memories from the times they spent together. He tries to tell this to the girl but she gets angry at his interruption. The concert continues and the memories go on as well. In the army, the now-violin player was not very dexterous and once almost killed himself and an officer during hand-grenade practise. There is yet another memory connected with the officer - he used to paint pictures and create small sculptures. He was eager to learn the young man's opinion on his works, but the youth responded evasively and the officer, in revenge, did not sign his leave-pass. The girl is again disturbed by the young man's words. Although this time the boy only silently responded to the question of another listener, the girl stands up and leaves in anger, refusing the young man's offer to accompany her.
