It is ironic though they have been craving for each other they pretend to be somebody else and never disclose. Yes, we could guess the characters even before they did.

2. Why do Dona Laura and Don Gonzalo spin fictitious stories about themselves?

A Sunny Morning by the Quintero brothers is a comedy. It tells the story of Don Gonzalo and Dona Laura, who were ardent lovers at their young age. But their affair was not a successful one as they had to part with each other in life. They meet each other in a park in Madrid during their old age. An old woman Dona Laura enters the scene leaning upon the arms of her maid Petra. The woman is happy about feeding pigeons with bread crumbs. It is at this point an old man enters with his attendant. The man is none other than Don Gonzalo, who is seen irritated as he finds no bench in the park to be vacant.

Moreover the one that he usually uses during his visit to the park is occupied by three priests. Quite grudgingly he comes near Laura and shares her bench. Laura gets infuriated as the old man has tried to scare the pigeons and she calls him “an ill-natured man”. But after a few moments of isagreement, both of them have a pinch of snuff and reconciles with each other. Gonzalo says that he is from Valencia and to his surprise Laura reveals that she is from Maricela, where she lived in a villa.

Gonzalo is startled by the revelation and he says that he knows a woman named Laura Llorente who lived in a villa there, who was perhaps the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Both Laura and Gonzalo realize that they were young lovers once. But they pretend not to reveal their identities. Both spin fictitious stories because they think that it was not a good idea to reveal their identities at old age. Moreover they were married and Gonzalo was suffering from gout. In order to hide their feelings for each other and to spend their remaining life in the sweet memories of the past they both spin stories about themselves.
