    In the middle of Sacramento, there is a park that seemed to be undiscovered by many of the Changelings in the Freehold. Fairytale Town Park seemed to be cleverly hidden, but why? It had been up until recently, as if a veil had been lifted for this small and odd park.


    It was as it would be expected; Old Woman and the Shoe themed, mother goose, and countless other little displays that served as children’s playground equipment and fun. They were not ‘rides’ like a carnival, but stationary and solid. Since 50F wasn’t a preferred temperature for most California’s, the park had been relatively quiet. Signs were posted of normal hours, but typically it was open through all days of the week. Like a mini wonderland for children.


    Even more strange, that it was in the news. Some strange noises were coming from the park by the passersby and even some children who ventured out into the chillier days. The neighborhood didn’t even walk their dogs nearby or walk through the park. There were bits and pieces of these reports on Facebook, Google News and a few small notes in the Sacramento Bee. No one could report what the noise was at all though, they couldn’t describe it.


    So on this January afternoon, the park again was vacant. A few folks were on the sidewalk that went around the entire park, a few of them walking their dogs here and there.

    Work had been sparse for her today. With the holiday season past, deliveries had lightened considerably. Not that she ever truly had a heavy load. Smaller courier companies like the one she worked for didn't get as much business as the big boys.

    So it was a lackadaisy afternoon for Sonja Wu, dressed in blue jeans, a green hoodie, a red knit beanie and her red Hedgespun boots. Lunch at her favorite taco truck had brought her to the area, and with one half-eaten in her hand, the curious monkey Beast had decided to come check out this children's park she had spotted on her social media feed. Arriving at the park, she finished her first taco and took a look around.

    Hm, cute place. And way too quiet. Did a weird noise really spook away everyone? I really wanna hear this for myself!
    And so she entered the park, staff tapping at random objects as she wandered about and listened patiently for the mystery noise.

    I wonder if they have monkey bars? If so I may never leave!
    she giggled at the thought.

    Quarterstaff, messenger bag, smart phone, Hedgespun shoes, a spare hoodie and a couple extra street tacos!

    It was a rather pleasant circumstance, to live so close by to a public playground. And while the premise certainly lacked in aristocraticness, entire volumes could be written about the utility and the practicalness of a desert playground. She smiled brightly and joyfully, playing on the swings alongside her wisps, clad by a warm trenchcoat.

    "Weeee, higher, faster!", she happily exclaimed. On a seat nearby, lays sprawled her banana tote bag.

    Detective Alfonso Franco stalks the park, in particular walking the "Crooked Mile" path and in general looking at everything. His expression is not mirthful; he looks like he's looking for a body, or signs of one having been hidden. His sharp eyes scan the area constantly, missing nothing, forgetting nothing.

    Coat, Hat, "feature phone" (not Smart, just voice and text), service pistol, Kevlar Vest (thin), in coat pockets: 1 water bottle, 6 "RX Bar" protein bars.

    Mien Black feathers and piercing, black eyes with a crow's bill and a hat.

    Her quest to find the monkey bars instead deposited Sonnie at the occupied swings, with a footloose and fancy-free Titania. She grinned and immediately ran over to join the Unicorn.

    "Hi Titty! Need a push? What brings you here? Are you also investigating the weird noises? Oh, I love the bag! Bananas are an important part of a balanced diet, you know! Hi little guys!" the chatty Beast smiled happily at the wisps, too, her tail waving.

    "Aaah, waah", she shouted in surprise jumping to her feet almost immediately. She was pushing 100 and still playing like a careless child. She didn't even want to think about what the rest of the freehold would have thought of her once they had found about her playing habits.
    "It's not what it looks like", she explained, half embarrassed, half caught unaware by the monkey's sudden attack. She grabbed her bag, tugging it protectively against her chest. Her wisps however seemed to be quite happy, with Sonnie around they had another playmate.

    Sonnie blinked in surprise at the Telluric's embarrassed reaction, apparently not thinking what the woman had been doing was any big deal. But she immediately keyed into that embarrassment with an amused smirk.

    "Not what it looks like? Enjoying yourself? We're Spring Court, girl. You never need to be ashamed of your desires around your fellow Emeralds. You shouldn't be ashamed of your desires ever. Now do you want a push or not?" The Steepscrambler gestured at the empty, swaying swing. Her monkey tail gave one of the wisps a playful poke.

    She chewed on her lips, perplexed. Was this a trap? Monkeys were tricky animals. "You first!", all around her wisps were whirling around them like dervishes dancing to the Azan.

    "Okay!" Her bag and staff were set down (carefully, because she had precious tacos in there!), before Sonja hopped into the swing's seat and made herself comfortable. Her long-toed feet kicked in the air in happy excitement, "Let's fly!"
