I need to figure out what Raphael meant when he said the barrier is to keep me in.
"Sure," Nathan said, jogging over to the passenger's side of the car, letting himself in while the pastor sat down in the driver's seat. "Um, do you mind dropping me off near the edge of town?"
"Strange destination," Lawrence noted, adjusting his glasses before he started the car. "May I ask why?"
The writer shrugged. "I need to check something out there. It's... kind of personal."
