Chapter 14. The Twilight Zone
Peace and Freedom Park, renamed several times through the years, finally evolved into a large park for cities of this size. It was, in fact, the largest park in the city.
One mile in circumference, standing on one end, the community museum operated by the council of tribes that lived in the area. Three stories above ground and two stories underground it was the pride of the community.
The crowning jewel was the casino they built with care and an eye for beauty and nature.
It was a beautiful park, great conifers that towered at the edges of the park. Ancient oak trees that seemed to tell stories by their very presence. The evenings were always peaceful with the ancient guardians of the park.
This evening was no different in the early autumn. In the beauty and space that families would come and play volleyball, touch-football and softball, a wide open area that begged for activity during the summer and weekends, a shadow floated down from above.
Soft whirring sound could be heard just before Radio Check touched down with the dark parasail, so gently that he did not even take a walking step.
From the trees, shadows emerged and moved quickly to Radio Check and relieved him of his heavy burden.
Four shadows on each corner of the package that held his equipment ran back to the road where a van waited and put the bag inside.
Another four shadows collected the wing and electric fan while Radio Check unhooked the harness.
In under a minute, they had packed up and vacated the area.
Climbing into the van, Radio Check was the last one to take his foot off the ground. Looking around, he smiled. It was all according to plan.
