The mansion is strangely intact which, in this setting, is kind of creepy. The boy also pleads not to go. If there is anything of value in this place, there are probably scary people guarding it. The emptiness of the place becomes and extension of the emptiness of the world yet still there is the possibility of danger yet unseen.
