During her ritual, she falls into a closet that guarantees her ticket into the Matchbright & Metterton Night Club. The protagonist, James Mitchum, jumps into the door-frame of a gentlemen's club to escape the pounding rain. There, he interrupts a smoke break by one of the club's dancers. She suggests that James go into the club to grab a drink while he's waiting for the weather to pass. When James enters the club, he notices that everything is a bit removed from societal norms. Each guest looks as if they too have sought refuge in the club to escape a personal hell. James is disturbed by the sad and depressed atmosphere. His reactions are clues that his surroundings are displaced. At a table next to the bar, the proprietor, Matchbright, buys James a drink. Matchbright is accompanied by Faith.
