We all have them, secrets. In Dead Girl Walking, Princess Ophelia has a secret and it gets her killed. In her new life as a grim reaper, she has another secret, what she is. The reapers know, but the people from her past can't ever find out. She's sworn to secrecy.
Here's a secret of mine. When I was a sophomore in college I stayed in the dorms on campus. The school had a strict no pets policy (except for fish). I was living with 3 other girls in a suite and we all wanted a pet. So, I got a rabbit and smuggled him into the dorm. For three years he lived with me and only a handful of friends knew about my pet.
On weekends when I'd go home, I'd put him into a black pet travel bag and sneak him in and out of the dorm. It wasn't easy, riding down the elevator with a rabbit hopping in the bag. I'd try and shift my weight and move around in the elevator, I'm sure people were wondering what was going on!
Here's a photo of Audrey Avery at 4 months old! He was super cute and friendly. Oh how I miss him!
