SCENE SPOTLIGHT:
 
Several men played cards with flattened cardboard boxes as makeshift tables. Every so often, they encountered two men in a heated game of Chinese checkers. Crowds of interested bystanders circled them, anticipating the next move.
 
Beth paused in front of the six-hundred-pound bronze sculpture of the Goddess of Democracy, another beautiful lady erected with a purpose. This Goddess—with her hands clutching a burning torch, her arms raised high above her head, and her hair blowing in a breeze—stood for human rights.  Beside her was a playground full of delighted children using up their energy in play.
 
At the Kong Chow Temple, a temple for the Chinese God of War used for prayers of business and love, the hostess instructed Beth through a ritual that included bowing three times before an elaborate altar and throwing a pair of halved wooden goose eggs while making a wish. She cupped the egg halves in her hands and thought about possible wishes, but decided to ask a question instead.
 
Will
Donovan and I bring David Buckland into custody?
 
She tossed the two halves before the altar and watched them land with the halves facing up. The hostess interpreted the meaning. “Yes.”
 
When they were outside, Donovan inquired about her wish.  “I’m not going to tell, but trust me when I say it’s good for you, too.” She patted his shoulder.
QUESTIONS:
 
1. Where does this scene take place?
 
China Town, San Francisco, California.
 
2. Did you have to do research to write this scene?
 
Tons! I’ve never been to California, so I had to do a lot of research on the state then on the city of San Francisco, and even more on China Town. Everything I mention throughout this scene are things I learned:    The Goddess of Democracy, Kong Chow Temple, and the ritual for the Chinese God of War. Even before this scene I researched the gate and the meaning of the lions and symbols at the entrance.
 
3. Can you tell us a secret about this scene?
 
At first, I thought of having Beth ask the God of War a romantic question between her and Donovan, but changed it since their reason to be in San Francisco is to catch a killer. But, of course, I just had to have her tease him about what she asked the God. *wink*
