Killing Characters

I've got a character that I like. To a degree. He's seemed a friend, but turns out to be an enemy. For some reason, I don't want to leave him like that. I think I've become fond of the lad. 

I've had to kill off characters in other stories and find it most distasteful. One time, I had to kill of a sweet wife and mother. It took me three days and I cried through it all. I've learned not to become as attached as that!

Yet characters can take over. I've had some baldly tell me, 'No,' when I've thought they should die or do something they don't like. Eventually, we come to some sort of agreement and the story moves forward.

Beware your characters, my Friends, They can be quite stubborn. And wilful.

Life is strange.
