Night falls, leaving Hope, Matthew and Isaiah in semi-darkness in the hallway, only lit with the moon's glow through the windows.
Matthew and Hope try to find their way in the hallway--and in the moment. With only glimmers of light before them they move forward.
Before Matthew turns on the wall switch he pauses and takes one last look at Hope. All the feelings he had for Hope years ago come rushing back at him.
Matthew starts to reach for Hope's hand.
Then from the hall below someone else reaches for the switch, leaving them caught in the light of the enormous chandelier above the grand staircase.
And Matthew's fight with the moonlight ends.
