Frankenstein, The Monster

A young couple sat talking about a classic story they’re having to review for what we can assume is their college course.

Him – “Frankenstein was a monster in pain due to deep longing I think.”
Her – “Frankenstein was the Dr, he wasn’t the monster, actually.”

She finished her sentence with a small smirk of glee from correcting her friend and I catch her eye with a smile, she smiles back, and I say but only two words.

Me – “Wasn’t he?”

To see the cogs begin to turn in their heads was quite the humble experience, so much so like any good human of the world I needed to share it on the internet because that’s what we do now.
