Maria: Could you believe what just happened?
Mike: Are you scared?
Maria: No, I'm just a little worried.
Mike: We should get some candles and light them before night time comes.
Maria: That's a good idea.
Mike: Where are the candles at?
Maria: I think they are in the basement.
Mike: Do you want to get them?
Maria: I think you should get them instead.
Mike: I thought you said you weren't scared?
Maria: I'm not!
Mike: Why do you not want to go down to the basement if you're not scared?
Maria: Because I just don't want to.
(Mike looks at Maria with a smirk. She looks back at him with a similar expression.)
Mike: Alright, I'll go and get the candles.
Maria: Thank you. Be careful down there.
Mike: I'll be back before you know it. Don't worry.
(Mike goes down to the basement. He walks carefully down the steps. Thanks to some light from a small window, he is able to find the candles. He walks back upstairs with the candles.)
Mike: I have the candles, Maria.
Maria: Let me get the matches.
(Mike and Maria light candles and put them throughout the apartment.)
Mike: That's better.
Maria: I wonder when the lights are coming back.
Mike: I'm sure that by tomorrow everything will be back to normal.
Maria: Are you hungry?
Mike: I completely forgot about dinner time.
Maria: You want to order a large pizza?
Mike: Good idea.
Maria: Good thing we have cell phones.
Mike: You can say that again.
(Mike and Maria ordered a pizza and told each other ghost stories by candle light.)
