They still live among us.
There are moments when you realize that the fears you had as a child are not real but simply a a movie or a dream. You feel safer and more confident. You visit the places that scared you and find they are familiar. You learn to live your life feeling safe and secure. There is then a moment when walking your bike home because a loved one is beside you when the horror returns. You realize that people still buy alligators for their progeny when both are small and cute. One gets abandoned in the sewers and the other most likely stars in reality television because all they know how to do is flush or abandon. You realize good things are still can happen because these alligators still roam free in this city. All the myths are still true unless you think you might make it big by playing a legendary rock club. There are no country, blue grass and/or blues clubs to play but maybe a SPR or two.
