In an essay, I must write about a secret I feel compelled to tell my reader. i was thinking about revealing that I am a vampire to my girlfriend. I have written the introduction; however, I need help with the body and conclusion.

Since a narrative essay is a story, you will want to make your essay a little "motion picture" of sorts; that is, your essay should create visual images for your reader, images that help her understand what has transpired with you.  It is as though she is watching what has happened to you rather than simply reading words. 

So, you will use sequential order to organize this essay.  If you have seen the movie I Was a Teen-Age Werewolf or Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde or any vampire movie that chronicles the changes in a person who becomes some preternatural creature, you can use these narratives as models to describe the physical and psychological changes that have taken place in your person.  Be sure to provide narrative examples such as small episodes about things that have occurred as a result of your having become a vampire.  For instance, you can tell about one night when you had her with you and you had an almost uncontrollable urge to bite her neck, but because you love her, you resisted, describing your actions.

As you write this narrative essay, do not forget to use appropriate transitions. those of time such as first, then, during, after, afterwards, etc.  And, to assist you with the body paragraphs, there is a link below that may be of use to you.
