His grandpa put him in a bear hug, squeezing out all of the worry and undue stress. Charles felt better after the brief engagement, but this changed when he walked down the narrow path that bordered the swamp. Bubbles brewed in the water in front of him, so he started running. An alligator flew elegantly out of the water and landed a few feet behind him. Left with no choice, he stopped, turned toward the beast and growled. The alligator flipped back into the water, but continued to menace him with its presence until he was clear of the path.
