The stage behind Walk The Moon is lit with thin aqua laser lights. Nicholas kicks the water.

Several people circle the young man and woman while they dance. They stand away from one another. The pearl background rotates between the thin aqua lit stage and the darkened background. The other dancers stand behind the young woman and thrust their heads back. She mimics the move by herself. In the lapis blue, she bends over and the young man touches her chin.

The young woman had loved the young man for a long time. He had posted on social media that he was going through a difficult time and needed to be alone. She texted him and asked him what was wrong. He explained that he found out his mother was terminally ill. She had suggested they meet for lunch. He thanked her for getting him out the house. They began to date.

However, people believed she was taking advantage of him. He was vulnerable and didn’t need a relationship in his life. She told them she was helping him while he was at the hospital tending to his mother. She asked them where they had been during the time. None of them had called or came by. They left her alone.

The death of his mother hit the young man hard. The conversations with him were curt. She came over his house and he yelled at her for cleaning up, saying he could do it himself. She had to let him go.
