And yeah, I’m sure some of you might’ve let him have it by now. But, really, not everybody unleashes the punches just because they’re being teased. So while Batey’s been decidedly mean and dickish to Al, he hasn’t really done anything that could actually harm a person that otherwise has a pretty awesome life going on.
With the current storyline I’m trying to dive deeper into my characters, give them a background, more depth. And as we see the sort of life that Al has, I hope to shed a bit of light on why a guy like him doesn’t really need to punch Batey in the face just because he’s being made fun of. Sure enough, I’m playing around with the characters a bit, creating conflicts and situations that I can toy around with as an aspiring writer. But rest assured that Al, just like everybody else, has a breaking point. It’s just that his breaking point is not being teased about his RPG character or anything related to that.
What is Al’s breaking point then, you might ask? Oh, well, we’ll be getting into that later.
