No Immunity

The fact that Stevie and Collin had escaped death at the hands of an unknown gunman was clearly an answer to prayer. And someone must have been praying for her afterward, too. Unable to work for days due to the trauma, Stevie had considered moving out of the Valley. But she kept returning to the same question: Where can we find immunity from such savagery? It pervades the entire greater Los Angeles area. So she consoled herself with the improbable odds that she could be a random target more than once. Just to be safe, she moved her bedroom furniture into Shawna's room next to Collin's room at the back of the house and beefed up the alarm system.
