    A Vault

    I'm like a vault. Lots of things that I see, hear and know about go into me and never come out. I just sort of lock them all in there and keep them to myself.

    I am a good secret keeper,

    and if you tell me one, I wont judge you on it. I believe im a trustworthy person, so if someone tells me a secret they can feel sure that its safe with me. if you ever want to tell me something, go for it because my ears and mind are always open. - Reece :*
