Chapter 4: A Nighttime Mystery
Intrigued by the news alert about the peculiar incident near Centennial Park, Clark and Lois decided to follow up on it. They gathered their belongings, excused themselves from the newsroom, and headed towards the scene.
As they approached the park, they noticed a small crowd gathered near the entrance, all murmuring about the strange lights and sounds they had witnessed the night before. Some described it as a brilliant display of colors and others as an eerie humming noise that seemed to emanate from the ground itself.
Clark and Lois spoke with a few witnesses, jotting down notes and taking photographs. The stories they heard were varied, but a pattern began to emerge. Most people claimed to have seen the lights and heard the sounds coming from the same general area within the park.
Lois raised an eyebrow as she glanced at Clark. “This is definitely unusual, but I’m not sure how it connects to the message you received.”
Clark nodded, deep in thought. “I’m not sure either, but maybe there’s more to it than meets the eye. If someone is trying to get my attention with that message, they might have a reason for leading us here.”
As they continued to interview witnesses, a park ranger approached them. “Excuse me, folks,” the ranger said, “I couldn’t help but overhear your conversation. You’re here about the strange lights and sounds, aren’t you?”
Clark and Lois exchanged a surprised glance. “Yes, we are,” Lois replied. “Do you have any information that might help us?”
The ranger hesitated for a moment before speaking in a hushed tone. “I can’t say much, but I’ve been noticing some unusual activity in the park lately. I think there’s something beneath the surface, something… otherworldly.”
Clark’s curiosity piqued. “Otherworldly? What do you mean?”
The ranger looked around to make sure no one was listening. “I’ve heard stories about a hidden chamber deep below Centennial Park. Some say it’s a portal to another world, and these lights and sounds might be connected to it.”
Lois and Clark exchanged intrigued glances. This revelation seemed to fit with the cryptic message and the strange occurrences in the city. They decided to explore the park further, searching for any clues that might lead them to this hidden chamber.
