Who would have thought that these two young lovers would find a different ending - this ending: It won't come as a surprise if I said two tragic passings happened in this house. You do have a haunting, an intellectual energy that won't stop fighting to be heard, but there's another power, an element of nature, like a catastrophic storm premeditating its course. I think this second energy lost its heart and soul a long time ago. It think it's ready to rip out someone else's.
