Ella explains to the singer that her friend Gavin was “supposed to be here with me tonight,” but he’s stuck in a hospital room and can’t have visitors. “It’s not just Gavin. There’s a whole ward of kids just like him,” Ella continues. “That’s why I didn’t want to come today. I just… I couldn’t stand the thought of having this great night with you when there were other kids that couldn’t.”

Hayley responds, “That’s a lot for you to carry. But you’re here. What changed your mind?” Ella replies, “I was reminded that not everyone gets the chance to do things like this. Not everyone gets their wish, so I’m not going to waste mine. But I need to make it mean something.”

The assistant attempts to end Hayley and Ella’s talk again, but Hayley stops her. “For this, I have all the time in the world,” Hayley says.
