9 (who?)
                                                                One Hundred Secrets

There was once a man who was born with One Hundred Secrets to hold dear.

He guarded them with the utmost care.

When he was five he told his friend one of them, the next day the whole school know.

He vowed never to tell any more of his secrets.

At fifteen he was sitting alone in his room guarded his secrets when his mom came in and asked what was wrong, he lost three more secrets that day.

96 were left and he vowed to keep them safe.

Thirty years pass and 96 were still left, then one day he meet's someone he only ever dreamed about. they were married the next year.

Finally he had someone he could tell his secrets too. Someone he could share his soul with.

He told this girl everything that was weighting him down. Each secret he told was like a weigh off his shoulders but at the same time he feelt a little empty, these secrets were his only company through out his life and they were slipping through his fingers, but he didn't care he was happy.

One day he came home and it was empty save for a note on the table that said Good Bye.

As he sat in that empty house he realized she not only took his heart but stole his secrets too.

He counted them, there were three left.

On that day he vowed never to tell anymore of them.

And he kept his word in till the end.

As he laid in the Hospital bed waiting for the end, the nurse came to check on him.

And this is what his said.

I was born with One Hundred Secrets to hold dear and guard with the utmost care.
Because in the end all you really have is your secrets, friends can let you down and family can disappoint and you're left with nothing but your secrets.
But maybe I was wrong, maybe your not meant to guard all your secrets, just keep them safe and give them to the ones you love them most.
I have three left and I would like to get them off my chest.

So I leaned down and he told me his last two secrets.

I stood up and looked at the man who had a small smile on and told me.

Don't make the same mistakes I did, It's alright to give away you're secrets. Because no matter how much you love them secrets they can never love you back.

And with that he left this world.

With a tear in my eye I covered his head and thought about what he said.

Then I remembered he had three secrets left but only told me two.

I often thing about what that man told me, and wonder what his last secret was and what it meant to him. I guess that will always be his little secret.

We are all born with One Hundred Secrets to hold dear and to guard with the utmost care.
How you use them is up to you. Give them freely away or hold on to them. If you don't know what to do just think about the words the old man spoke, that's what I do.
I thought of this last night when I was thinking about my own secrets. Some times I wan't to tell people about them but secrets are the only thing I really care about. I don't have any friends but I would like to and be close to people but how can I with out giving them up? I'm down to 96 just like in this story I want to tell them, I'm just not sure if I can.

What do you guys think, anything would be really helpful. Lisend to this wail I wrote it. and a little of this.

I don't want to tell my secrets to the wrong persons.
Though sometimes I feel like sharing them.
I like your story though I hate open endings (like what his last secret was. I thought it was that you don't have to keep your secrets ... so he had two more left to tell)
But I believe you wanted to write 'think' instead of 'thing' in the line "
I often thing about what that man told me"
