“Let me be frank, Frank.”


“You’re an abomination.”


“Do you know how long I’ve worked on stitching you together–how many hours I spent digging up graves to find the various pieces I needed? You don’t, do you?”


“All that time and effort was wasted. You can’t even talk.”


“All I wanted was a companion… someone I could talk to… someone who could talk to me.”


“It gets lonely up here at the castle, Frank.”


“At least make yourself useful and go steal me a woman or two from the village.”

Written for Friday Fictioneers. This prompt gave me a bit of trouble. I didn’t get any horror ideas, probably because I’ve been writing so many horror drabbles lately for the second volume of 100 tiny tales of terror, which will likely be out in December and would make a perfect Christmas gift for yourself or a loved one. *wink wink nudge nudge* Anyway, so instead of horror I envisioned a conversation between Dr. Frankenstein and his monster, who I realize doesn’t actually have a name but I called Frank for the purposes of this story.
