Destination : Unknown (7)   (a short story)


Not knowing what else to do, he continued walking.

The area was similar to the one he knew, but at the same time different.  He couldn't put his finger on why...

Then, behind the Book Off shop he came upon an open area.  A Park here ?  There certainly wasn't before !

Amidst the greenery, benches and small pond, a large obelisk bisected by an open ring loomed above.  A large sculpture, it seemed.

Amazed, Toshi walked closer.  There was a plaque and some writing on the base.  It was still rather dark, but he could read the words.: "In Memoriam to the Victims of the Atomic Bombing of Tokyo, September 20, 1945."                               (G.K)
