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, he and Jane went to the recreational center to see Tara's violin recital. Tara played wonderfully. So he and everyone else clapped and applauded her. Afterwards he and Jane 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. Hearing this, he and Jane encouraged her not to feel bad. Just because Michael was a jerk. Later in the cafeteria, he and his friends discussed the program the building was having the night before it was going to be torn down called: "The Last Dance".

Later that evening. the last dance program began. Tara was still upset because she still had not found her violin yet. He and Jane 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 stormed off and left with Jane following her. He was not too impressed with his lack of sympathy and support.

Twenty minutes later, he and Michael went off to find Tara and Jane. Since they had been gone for so long. They found Jane drenched in red paint. Jane was sobbing and tense. Now Jane mentioned that something came out from the ceiling vent and captured Tara. Seeing the red paint footprints Michael followed them into the ventilation tunnels. He stayed behind to comfort and support Jane. Since she had become so traumatized after seeing an unknown creature kidnap her friend.

It turned out that although Tara kidnapped, she was going to be all right. The kidnapper was a mutant known as The Lurker. The Lurker 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 her. So The Lurker unwilling kidnapped her. In order to meet her.
