Character's Dirty Secret for B #atozchallenge

Theme: Characters & Their Dirty Little Secrets.

I hope you enjoy today's entry as we feature another secret for your enjoyment, thrills, chills, and possibly appalling reactions. I tried to keep it under 500 words for each day's entry. Come see what we have in store for you today in a fictional character's own words...

Brett Hargrove
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Book: Prowlers & Growlers Boxed set
Title story: Shadows Mark

I’ve spent my life being loyal to my family, my lineage and my clan. I know it’s my duty to lead the legion, but the truth of the matter is, I’m not entirely happy. I didn’t choose this life for me. It’s not what I wanted. I’m not sure what I want. If given the choice I don’t know what I’d choose. Would I have chosen the life I’d been given? Would I have chosen something else? It’s all so confusing. And sometimes I can’t help but wonder if there might have been a different plan for me… maybe… a different purpose?

It probably sounds crazy. Hell, maybe I’m crazy. Lord knows I’ve been called worse. It’s not like I’m the most revered or most loved out of our legion. Many of those in our clan don’t know much about me, or care to. Not really sure if that’s their doing or mine. It’s not as if I’m Mr. Warm and Friendly. I keep to myself, rarely talk to others and probably seem like an ogre to most.

I’m not really sure who I’m kidding anymore. A majority of them probably do think I’m a first class asshole. That’s not their fault. It’s mine. I need to get out more. Talk to others. Get to know them. If I’m going to lead them, shouldn’t they at least know who it was they were following?

Maybe that’s my problem. I spend more time talking to myself than I do to other people. Not that we are people. We’re a far cry from the human race.

But I’m going to start trying.

I’ll aim to do better.

For the legion.

For them.

For myself.
