Sam Evans // 23 // Bartender-Dancer
The Moulin Rouge. A night club. A dance hall and a bordello. Ruled over by Sue Sylvester. A kingdom of night time pleasures, where the rich and powerful come to play with the young and beautiful creatures of the underworld.
Being a struggling family in New York was extremely hard, the Evans family knew that. The two parents had to feed and house 3 children while also keeping themselves in working order. Their oldest son, Sam, had spent his entire teenage life trying to find odd jobs to help bring as much cash as he could to help feed his younger brother and sister. They lived in a small 2 bedroom apartment, Sam making his bed on the broken down couch in the living room to give his parents the privacy they deserved. He hated the state his family was in, and he constantly wished for ways to make things better. He hated seeing the tired eyes of his parents, and hearing the grumbling bellies of the younger ones.
One day, on his job hunt, he had wandered down a dark alleyway, coming out on the other side to find the Moulin Rouge, lit bright and lines of people outside. He snuck in through the side door, wondering what was going on, being shock when he walked into the flashing lights and loud music. Dancers were on the stage, moving through the crowd, and all he was intrigued. He had found a security guard, tugged on their sleeve and asked for management, and soon enough became face to face with the one and only Sue Sylvester. He asked for a job, and at first she appraised him, making faces as she walked around him.
She took pity on the poor boy and gave him a job as a bartender. It didn’t pay perfectly, but it gave Sam the money he needed. Though, when he found out they might be losing their apartment, he took a risk. And went to Sue, looking for a dancing job. That night, Sam found himself on stage, short gold shorts, finding use for the body roll he had perfected. She kept him as a bartender though, and on special nights, she broke out Sam’s gold shorts for a higher pay. Though Sam wasn’t the most proud of his job, it gave him money, and right now that’s all he needed.
