Character interview

Whew, I can’t believe I found you way out here. Hey, whoa Mr. Tyree, remember me, Sandra, your author said it’d be okay to interview you.

Keeper: I don’t know why she’d tell you that. I don’t like to talk about myself. It makes me twitchy.

Sherri: Twitch?

Keeper: Yeah, twitchy. You know when your shirt has too much starch or you walk into church.

Sherri: Ahh, yes, that uncomfortable feeling. Kinda what I’m feeling now. Can you lower your weapon sir?

I know you’re a busy man, you’re chasing a murderer but surely you need to rest a moment. How about I fix us a pot of coffee and we can sit a spell?

Keeper: Well, I never turn down a cup of coffee, especially from a pretty woman.

Sherri: Why are you doing it? Why are you going after Josiah Pardee?

Keeper: I’ve been hired by the widow O’Donnell. The murdering sidewinder killed her boy in cold blood.

Sherri: Shouldn’t you be retiring, taking it easy? Aren’t you afraid of dying?

Keeper: Oh, I’ll slow down one of these days. As far as dying, everyone has to die. The trick is do it on your own terms with no regrets.

Sherri: How did you become a hired gun?

Keeper: Wasn’t anything I planned. But I’m good with a gun.  Word got around and it just kinda stuck.

Sherri: Where are you from? Have you always lived out west?

Keeper: Oh, I’m from here and there. Yeah, I’ve always lived in the west. Only time I’ve been east is when I went to St. Louie. Those hotels do have nice silk sheets and smooth whiskey.

Sherri: What is your biggest regret?

Keeper: I like youngsters. If I’d chosen a different profession, I would have settled down and raised a dozen of my own.  But a woman and kids need a man around, not someone who moves around as much as I do and could end up dead any given day.

Sherri: Have you ever wanted to do anything else?

Keeper: What else would I do?

Sherri: What are your hopes for the future?

Keeper: To stay alive.

Sherri: Good luck with that.
