It seemed everyone was in on some type of deal these days and you had to watch your back. Shady things and characters were everywhere and the language of confrontation slipped easily from the lips of passerby’s. People even honked their horns, a rarity in this neighborhood and though it may never have been considered sleepy, you could remember a time when not a soul could be seen in certain areas past 8pm. Now everyone was out and at seemingly all hours of the night. Who were these movers and shakers some of them old enough to drive? Most followed some tech or business expansion out here like those crazy old miners of 49 but instead of working the land they pursued nothing at all and threw money into the silliest toys and most wayward ventures. The regular people in the neighborhood had greeted these newcomers with trepidation but they came from ancient families and could lay a discerning eye on such proceedings. Hell, even you were from somewhere else
