Holly narrate these words while going to mountain of Saskatchewan with Kit on Car:
We took off at sunset, on a line toward the mountains of Saskatchewan, for Kit a magical land beyond the reach of the law. He needed me now more than ever, but something had come between us. I'd stopped even paying attention to him. Instead, I sat in the car and read a map and spelled out entire sentences with my tongue on the roof of my mouth, where nobody could read them.
She was sitting in the car instead of doing what?
I was confused by seeing the word instead in Holly's narration. Is there any use of the word "Instead" in this narration.
