Sherriff Woods

Been working on my short story for the competition, I don't really know if it's any good, but I'm having a lot of run writing it. Here's the first little bit (the very first part, up to "seldome deserve it") we had to use, it was part of the competition guidelines or whatever.

“In my experience those who beg for mercy seldom deserve it” he told me.
“I just say, my name is Sherriff Noah Woods, my word is the law and you are under arrest.” And that is what he would say, I saw him ’rrestin’ many a crooked soul right out there on the street, and every time they would say, “have mercy, Sherriff!” he would just repeat that line and throw ‘em in a cell.
