Writing exercise – first person character sketch

Have to go to the capital. Damn it.

This tunic, it’s filthy. Why didn’t I notice that before? Doesn’t matter. Stupid upstart isn’t a quarter the man his father was. Expects an old man to give up his time for some whim. Not like I can just walk. Bloody leg don’t work right.

Sword. Funny to have it in my hand again. Still feels right. Funny thing that, I can’t use it like I used to. Feels like I could though. Feels like it’s just right there. Maybe it’s just the drink. It’s always the drink though isn’t it old man? Always the drink telling me I can do this, can’t do that.

Maybe I should sober up.
