Lisa blinked, feeling like she had come out of a daze, not remembering anything of the
strange men or Joe’s quick rescue. How long had she been standing in the parking lot? She
thought she smelled sulfur but couldn’t determine the source. She got in her car and
gripped the steering wheel. Turning on her high beams, she merged into the heavy traffic
of Haven City and drove off. She hoped this sort of staring episode didn’t occur around
Kristy. I’m supposed to be taking care of her. I can’t let her down.
