After refusing Tommy Hewlett's wedding proposal, she has her driver driver her to a lonely place, where they have a one-night stand and return to the party, where she witnesses her driver committing suicide after being fired by a relative of Arden's. On a rainy day, Arden attends an art exhibition and meets painter and aspiring boxer Packy Cannon. They sail to the South Seas together in his boat and she falls in love with him. A couple of months later Packy dumps her, brings her back to the city, and heads for China alone. Heartbroken, Arden accepts when Tommy proposes again, and they marry.
