KOA THOUGHTFULLY REMOVES THE PHOTOGRAPH FROM THE WOODEN FRAME. IN A FIT OF PASSION, HE SUDDENLY TEARS IT IN HALF, DROPPING THE FRAME AND THE TORN PHOTOGRAPH ON THE FLOOR. AS THE FRAME CRACKS AND THE GLASS SHATTERS, KOA’S MIND DESCENDS INTO A FIT OF DESPERATE RAGE. IN HIS OUTBURST, HE GRABS A KEROSENE LAMP AND THROWS IT AT THE WALL. THE FIREBALL ENGULFS THE WALL IN A BRIGHT YELLOW BURST OF DAZZLING LIGHT AND SMOKE.

AS THE KEROSINE DRIPS DOWN THE WALL AND ONTO THE FLOOR, THE BEAUTY OF THE VIOLENCE CATCHES KOA OFF GUARD. THE DESTRUCTION HE SEES BEFORE HIM STUNS HIM, AND FOR A MOMENT HE STANDS MOTIONLESS AS HE WATCHES THE FLAMES DANCE OVER THE MEMORIES NOW BURNING BEFORE HIM. A FINGER OF FLAMES CREEPS TOWARD HIM AND SINGES THE TORN PHOTOGRAPH OF HIS PARENTS.
