Ok so I’m watching Angel (note the obligitory link to the petition for a 6th season) and I’m not having a good time. My fave character, Wesley is watching his new girlfriend, Fred, die rather horribly, and he’s crying, which I hate. Anyway, long story short, she asks him to read to her, and next scene you hear “She was such a little girl that one did not expect to see such a look on her small face. It would have been an odd look for a child of twelve, and Sarah Crewe was only seven….”
I about died. As soon as Angel was over (and I was done crying), I ran into my room and found the copy of A Little Princess (with my mother’s inscription from 1985 inside) and started reading it. I guess I’ll go to The Secret Garden next (which was my fave of the two), if I live through the ribbing I’m going to get at work. The only problem is that I keep hearing Wesley narrate – which is not really a problem, now that I think about it….
Those are my favorites too, Sweetie-Pie.
