Short story loosely based on Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein
By Liza A. and Maria C.
Hi everyone! We are Liza and Maria. We decided to write a short horror story based on Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein, which is about a monster who ruins the life of its creator, Victor Frankenstein, in revenge. What if Victor had created a female companion for his monster-child? What would have happened? Stay with us reader! We hope you will enjoy it!
Although I wasn't sure I had made the right choice, I decided to go ahead with my experiment of creating a female companion for my monster. Within hours, the sky started to get darker and darker foreshadowing a terrible storm. It was the right time. The machine was ready, the corpse was connected to the wires. Immediately, the lightning came and its electricity travelled to the machine. The monster entered the laboratory, hopeful that he could finally find someone who cared for him. After a few hours, the body of the woman began to shake and slowly she stood up.
She was really skinny with small thin arms and legs. Her face was pale like a corpse would be, while her hair was long, straight and black with some white strands here and there around her visage, probably caused by the electricity. The most frightening thing about that creature was her piercing dark yellow eyes, bright as candles in the dark of night.
