Near the outdoor basketball court is a brick recreation building, which includes
an indoor basketball court.
Families sit at tables in the park, enjoying a picnic. One boy throws a frisbee to
his dog. Mothers watch their young children play on swings in a sandy playground.

Yo, Wes. Didnít think youíd be able to play.

You bring a ball? [Did you bring a ball?]

[The boys practice ball fifteen minutes. Once the other

Wes, time to go home. [It is time to return home.]
[The sun is setting as Mel and Wes walk back home. A few fat
clouds drift in the sky, reflecting streaks of red and orange. A full moon already
is beginning to shine over the horizon. Shadows from many trees in the park grow
longer as the sun sets. Crickets sound in dark bushes. Click here to see the following story:
