Is this a story about human struggles or are the characters only the material traces of energy fields colliding, intermixing, and resolving?

Rose senses Roy approaching. She reads a looming darkness, the continual presence of an other, and feels resistance is inevitable.

"Some people still know me," says Roy, "And are willing to help." but all Rose can think about is what will happen when light and dark meet.

"You are always welcome here," she offers, "but you must be completely open."

Roy relaxes his solar plexus and Alpha sends out rays that simulate divine light. Rose is not fooled but she keeps it to herself, pretending to be dazzled. While she compliments Roy and thanks him for his honesty, her energy quickly weaves a cage, isolating his fibers, and hopefully catching Alpha by surprise.
