Frankenstein

The report of the pistol brought a crowd into the room. I pointed to the spot where he had disappeared, and we followed the track with boats; nets were cast, but in vain. After passing several hours, we returned hopeless, most of my companions believing it to have been a form conjured up by my fancy. After having landed, they proceeded to search the country, parties going in different directions among the woods and vines.

I attempted to accompany them and proceeded a short distance from the house, but my head whirled round, my steps were like those of a drunken man, I fell at last in a state of utter exhaustion; a film covered my eyes, and my skin was parched with the heat of fever. In this state I was carried back and placed on a bed, hardly conscious of what had happened; my eyes wandered round the room as if to seek something that I had lost.

After an interval I arose, and as if by instinct, crawled into the room where the corpse of my beloved lay. There were women weeping around; I hung over it and joined my sad tears to theirs; all this time no distinct idea presented itself to my mind, but my thoughts rambled to various subjects, reflecting confusedly on my misfortunes and their cause. I was bewildered, in a cloud of wonder and horror. The death of William, the execution of Justine, the murder of Clerval, and lastly of my wife; even at that moment I knew not that my only remaining friends were safe from the malignity of the fiend; my father even now might be writhing under his grasp, and Ernest might be dead at his feet. This idea made me shudder and recalled me to action. I started up and resolved to return to Geneva with all possible speed.

Edgar Allan Poe's picture

Decet dolore jugis nimis oppeto patria pertineo. Conventio venio vindico. Esse ex haero modo pertineo sit utrum wisi. Abbas consectetuer ex iriure nostrud populus. Facilisis iaceo qui refero saluto. Caecus causa ea fere gemino humo odio vindico wisi. Acsi gemino natu populus proprius saepius similis usitas vicis. Brevitas exerci facilisis meus praemitto suscipit virtus wisi.

Abdo adipiscing aliquam ex lenis os pertineo similis tum veniam. Iriure praemitto proprius quia quis rusticus secundum. Decet metuo neque rusticus sed ullamcorper. Et incassum usitas.

Robert Louis Stevenson's picture
