Louis stepped through the threshold and was bathed in the light. The variations from the refractions made a harlequin type pattern on his face and clothing. Seeing Louis was unharmed, Mary Ellen stepped through and was closely followed by Tara who almost clipped Mary Ellen’s heel. Behind them, the stone door slowly slid shut, sealing them in. They remained in the middle of the room and the brightness intensified, changing colors, alternating between violets and purples. After a few cycles, the three visitors began to feel a soothing, almost numbing effect from the light work. Conversation between them became light and cordial. The purples and violets gradually faded to the colorless light that had appeared when they first entered. Moments later, the far wall moved out, sliding back to allow space on both sides for someone to walk through.
