Character idea

The streets today were quieter than usual. Crime has been rising in my city by the hour.  Each day I hope that there will be  some relief from the constant downpour of evil, but I find myself often disappointed.

I’ve been starting to wonder why I picked a place like this to set up shop. There are plenty of other troubled neighborhoods that could use a good man but I ended up here. Am I suicidal? No. I guess I just enjoy a challenge.  My life can be difficult at times, but I’m not the kind of guy who just gives up when things get tough. I guess its just pride that does that, but if I’m still breathing, I’m still trying. At least that’s the kind of guy I want to be.

Being an entrepreneur has its challenges that’s for sure. I love my old book store here in the city. With the economy as bad as it is, I don’t get many people in here but I’m surviving. Even though things are getting worse I’m not worried. I’ve got plenty of friends and connections to keep me floating when times get tough and with business so slow, I have plenty of time to finish my apprenticeship.
