Running "The Earth Shop", Lauren Fournier had seen many unusual things. The supernatural was, after all, the purpose of the store. But never, since she'd taken it over, had anyone in the Christian community entered without an ulterior motive. They want to "save her soul" without a heart for understanding who she was.
