Albert walks along the way holding the cage under his arm. On his way he meets Irma who asks him if he can still remember her. He says that he does. Irma thanks Albert for saving her at the Hanging Rock. Albert says that that was nothing to speak of and that it actually was Michael who saved her, even though he couldn't really remember it. Irma - not noticing Albert anymore - smilingly looks at Michael and then walks towards him. The to of them face each other - both smiling - and then walk through the woods with Dianne. At the end of the scene Dianne looks at Irma and Michael who sat down to talk. Dianne leaves.





Michael walks up the stairs to the attic to go to Albert. He hands him a bottle of beer. Albert opens it and takes a pull on the bottle. Albert then says that the best place to enjoy a cold beer is the pond. When Michael says that it really is hot up there, Albert replies that it always is hot there since they are directly under the roof. Michael mentions that it is surprising that Albert is even able to sleep there. Albert then asks Michael if he latlely spent some time with Mrs. Leopold - Michael affirms it.


Irma says that the sommer will soon be over. Michael replies that maybe it's for the best. He thinks that they could dare to take another boat ride. Irma says that she's not too happy about it, since the end of the summer reminds her of somebody dying. She mentions that Miranda always says that everything begins and ends at the right time and at the right place. Michael then asks Irma what happened on the rock. She doesn't answer and looks to the side. After that you see both of them standing at the lakeside. Michael tells her that he plans to leave to go to Queensland. Irma sadly runs away while Michael cat-calls something at her.
