Sarah and Reed. They need to stop. It’s getting obvious. The more they fight, the more trouble they’re going to cause. Not because of the fighting. More because of what that kind of fighting leads to -- a relationship. They’re becoming close, whether they realize it or not. And Reed, he’s got all those qualities Sarah wants in a nice guy. I’ve seen it before with Daniel. And I’m seeing it again here. Sure, it’s none of my business. Except this kind of life doesn’t afford that kind of thing. A relationship.
Sarah should have learned that by now. Reed, he’s a good guy. So I feel bad that he’s going to have to learn that. On his own. Eventually.
Like I said, the whole situation’s trouble. Maybe it’s being trapped in this car for almost 24 hours a day. Fortunately Reed’s offered a temporary solution. To combat the claustrophobia. We have a lot of time before we need to be in Boston. And Reed’s got a friend in Pittsburgh. Someone we can stay with for a few days. Who can give us four walls and roof that aren’t in a hotel.
Will post again later. For now I need to concentrate on the road.
Still driving. Getting darker now. Had to pull over before my eyes closed their way into a three car pile up. Been on the road for almost 24 hours straight. Sarah and Reed are still asleep. They snore in sync.
A sign of further trouble.
Pittsburgh’s still a few days away. Can’t get there too quickly. Got to maintain the speed limit. Stay under the radar. Always use a turn signal. Do nothing to attract attention. Funny. From the looks of it, if you were driving beside us, we might just be three kids on a break from school. How would you ever know who we really are, right?
When I drive I sometimes like to watch the people in the cars next to me. When I’m stopped a red light or in bumper to bumper or whatever. It’s interesting. Sometimes I see families. Sometimes I see couples. Sometimes I see lonely people. Sometimes I see someone who might be just like me.
There are times where I want to pull over and see who they really are. I don’t know if that’s because I’m curious. Of if it’s because I’m becoming suspicious of everyone.
Hymn of None seems slightly more trustworthy now. I’ll admit that. But I’m skeptical of this cure device idea. Who knows if its real or not. Who knows if, when all’s said and done, this thing is even going to work? It’s not like it’s going to come with an instruction manual.
But here we are anyway. Heading to Boston. Looking for some salvation. Whatever’s waiting for us there is going to be interesting. That’s the only thing I’m sure of right now.

- The title of this post be is most likely a reference to the song "Road to Nowhere" by the Talking Heads.
