Alternate Ending To Frankenstein Essay

1699 words - 7 pages

The monster took his first breath and opened his eyes. Victor stood paralyzed in fear of his creature. The creature was not what Victor had expected at all; He was absolutely hideous. Victor felt a sense of responsibility as the creature’s creator and decided to treat the creature as if it were a newborn baby. Victor helped the creature take his first steps and brought him to a chair to sit down. “I’ll be right back” Victor told the creature as he went to get the creature a drink. He showed the creature how to drink and told him it was called water. Victor kept pointing at the cup of water and saying “water” until the creature finally repeated him. Victor spent the rest of the day ...view middle of the document...

Victor made a fire next to the creek and cooked the fish for the monster to sample. The creature was fascinated by the fire. It was so warm and when Victor was busy preparing the fish, the creature put his hand in the fire, not knowing that it would burn him. The creature freaked out and howled. When Victor tried to help the creature, the creature pushed him and Victor went flying back. Victor brushed himself off and realized the creature was gone. Victor walked around calling for the creature, but he could not find him. Victor did not know what to do. He knew the creature did not mean to hurt him, and if someone else were to find his creature, they would probably kill him out of fear.
Night was approaching and Victor decided to go back to his house, but leave the fire for the creature in case he were to return. In the morning he would go back to the same spot and look for the creature again.
When Victor returned the following morning, he found the creature sitting next to the fire. Victor was relieved and impressed. The creature was able to keep the fire going. The creature was also preparing a fish for breakfast. The creature smiled when he saw Victor walking toward him. Victor helped the creature finish cooking the fish and decided that it was time to give the creature a name. The creature was so horrendous looking, yet so gentle and kind, he was not sure what name would even be suitable for such a creature. He decided that being the creator of this creature, the creature’s name should be a derivative of his own. Victor pointed at the creature and said, “Frank.” Then he pointed at himself and said, “Victor.” After pointing back and forth at himself and the creature and repeating their names, the creature finally understood.
Victor and Frank continued their walk from the day before. Victor talked the entire time of their walk, trying to teach Frank how to speak in sentences and communicate well. By the time it was getting dark once again and they were almost back to Victor’s house, Frank asked his first question, “Can we bring a bird home?” Victor laughed. Frank had taken a particular liking to birds they saw on their walk, but Frank had scared them all away every time he approached one. Victor told the monster that they could try tomorrow to get a bird.
Once Frank and Victor were back to Victor’s, Frank opened one of the books on Victor’s bookshelf. He flipped through the pages, confused as to what it was. He asked Victor what he was looking at, and Victor explained to him what a book was and that words they speak can also be written. Victor read the first couple chapter of the book to Frank before he was went to bed. When Victor woke up the next morning, Frank was on the last couple pages of the book. Frank expressed how much he enjoyed the book and ho fascinating he found it. It was Milton’s Paradise Lost. Victor was once again surprised at how intelligent his creature was and how easily he picked up reading. Frank said he felt...
