He watches as the the heroine tries to calm young Hameed's nerves by distracting him, and the pair talk his favorite food, which he mentions is a combination of ice cream on pizza, to Najaf's confusion. When the rail breaks, Hameed falls, but Night Light manages to create an energy construct, which the two land atop of, mid-air. Najaf and the others give a round of applause for Night Light's heroics, but before Hameed can safely climb onto the roof, the construct shatters.
