    Nan stomps her heel down hard on top of Santiago's foot, and he howls in pain.
    Rather than releasing her, his grip grows tighter. His ragged, unkempt fingernails dig into her skin.

    Nan claws back, kicks him in the knee.
    Santiago cries out.

    Santiago suddenly lets go of Nan.

    Henry says that if he ever touches her again, he'll break his neck.

    Henry throws Santiago and he collapses into the chapel's single pew.

    Nan and Henry keep their respective weapons at the ready, watching him. He breathes raggedly, deeply.

    Nan asks him questions, but he stares with glassy eyes, not responding to her queries.
    He says Nan needs to leave it.
    That some things need to stay in the dark.

    Henry asks Nan what they should do with him. He clearly can't be trusted.

    Nan's arm was bitten hard enough to draw blood, and she has some rough scratches. She is badly shaken, but mostly unhurt.

    Nan has no intention of making any kind of physical contact with him, but despite the fear and anger rushing through her, something in Santiago provokes a reaction.
    Nan says she forgives Santiago. He is hurt, confused, scared, just like anyone else here. And if there is a way to save him, she will see that he escapes this place too.
    But she cannot forget what he has done, and warns that if he ever comes after her again, she will be ready.

    Santiago stares for a long moment.

    Santiago gets to his feet, and Henry moves between them to defend Nan.

    He says that what Nan has started may be too late to stop. She will have enemies at all sides.
    Be careful shining your light around, Nan.
    You may not always like what you find.

    Santiago says he's leaving now. Staying any longer in one place is dangerous for him.
    He says if you want to stop him from leaving, you'll have to kill him.

    Nan doesn't like the idea of being attacked again, but she won't kill him like this.

    Without any further comment, Santiago staggers to his feet and stumbles out of the Chapel, crouching down and crawling through the tunnel in the wall.

    Nan asks Henry if he saw that.

    Just Santiago leaving, he says.
    Hard to see in the dark.

    Nan inspects the book on the podium.

    It's not a Bible after all.
