Sam has lived in this town her entire life. She grew up in the poorest part of town. The only child of an alcoholic mother and drug addicted father, she pretty much raised herself. It wasn't a rare occurrence to come home from school and have her parents passed out, she preferred that to coming home to the police, her father in cuffs, and her mother bruised and battered. She didn't have many friends and she didn't really want any. She stuck to herself preferring her own company over the questions and prodding that she always eventually got from others.
She was a smart girl and got good grades in school. When at 16 her father decided to take his anger out on her, she moved out. Her mother begged her to stay but she couldn't and wouldn't do it. She stayed with her mother's cousin until she graduated and had made enough money to move out on her own shortly after her 18th birthday. She started doing odd jobs at first, cleaning houses, and soon what was a simple way to earn a couple dollars became her business. Within a couple of years one house became another and another, until soon she found herself going from house to house cleaning, very rarely was it that she didn't work 40 or more hours a week. Her clients often asked her when she would hire someone to work for her, and perhaps soon she would have to do just that.
She lives in the present, and looks to the future, hardly ever looking back. She hasn't went home since the day she moved out. She doesn't ponder the "what ifs" of life, knowing that it's just a waste of time. She very rarely if ever reminisces about the past.
She's been in love before, the first time, fresh out of high school, with an older man. Unfortunately she lost her heart before she found out he was married. The second time was shortly after the first, having broken up with the older man, she started dating a friend from school. The relationship was a difficult one from the start. Sam didn't care what others thought about her relationship with another woman, but her girlfriend most definitely did. She kept their relationship a secret for over a year before Sam had enough. She couldn't be the girl's dirty little secret any longer. Both relationships ended badly, hurting her more than she imagined she could ever be hurt. She hasn't given up on love, but she definitely doesn't give her heart as freely as she used to.
