She and Scot are both very supportive and encouraging with Tara being a talented violist. She and Scot were getting annoyed and fed with Michael's lack interest and lack of support in his girlfriend Tara being a classical musician.

During the events of the story the town's big old recreational center was literally falling apart. Instead of renovating the building, it was going to be torn down. In its place a new strip mall was going to be built.

In the last week, she and Scot went to the recreational center to see Tara's violin recital. Tara played wonderfully. Then she and everyone else clapped and applauded her. Afterwards she and Scot congratulated her on a well done recital. She thanked them, but was ashamed to say that she felt that she just made her boyfriend fall asleep. Michael had left before the performance was done. His excuse was that he needed to be doing something. Instead of just sitting down the entire time. She madly told him that by staying to watch the entire recital, he would have been supporting his girlfriend. Afterwards, she and Scot encouraged her not to feel bad. Just because Michael was a jerk. Later in the cafeteria, she and her friends discussed the program the building was having the night before it was going to be torn down called: "The Last Dance".

The whole time that she and her friends were talking, an unseen creature was Tara stalking from a ceiling vent above. Then suddenly the tiles broke and almost fell on them. Scot and Michael covered she and Tara just in time.

Over in the girls' locker room, the unseen creature stalked Tara again. Tara reflected about all the good times she's had over the years. Then about how she was really going to miss the place.

That evening, the last dance began. Tara was still upset that she had not found her violin yet and couldn't perform. Both she and Scot expressed their sympathy and supported her. Michael on the other hand, just wanted them to all enjoy the party and have fun. For being so insensitive, Tara just stormed off and left. She told him that he was such a doofus and went off to find her. She walked around the halls, calling out to Tara to answer her. Suddenly she looked up and something poured a bucket of red paint all over her.

She than saw a frightening mutant creature called The Lurker coming down from the ceiling. So screamed her head off. Hearing her scream from a distance, Tara ran by to help her. As Tara bumped into The Lurker it kidnapped her. The Lurker proceed into taking Tara his underground hideout. She was traumatized from witnessing her friend being kidnapped and went into a bit of shock.

After being gone for over twenty minutes, Michael and Scot went off to find she and Tara. They found her drenched in red paint. She was now sobbing and tense. So she mentioned that something came out from the ceiling vent and captured Tara. Michael saw red paint footprints and began to follow them into the ventilation tunnels.

Scot stayed behind to comfort and support Jane. Since she had become so traumatized after seeing an that creature kidnap her friend.

It turned out that although Tara kidnapped, Tara was going to be all right. The Lurker was actually just a harmless sketch artist. One that had lived a secluded and secret life behind the walls of the recreational center. For years the Lurker admired Tara from afar and watched her grow up to become a very talented young woman. Since the building was going to be torn down, The Lurker soon would no longer be able to see Tara. So The Lurker unwilling kidnapped Tara. In order to meet Tara.
