Once Upon A Picture
This is an outtake from chapter 11 "The Stranger" in my story "Painting On The Wall". It tells the Frankenstein tale of one of my own original characters, and how she came be in the world of vampires. I'll be working on this full time until completion as the main story shouldn't go on without this beautiful tale of tragic love, rejection and family.
Please remember to read and review, its my audience that keeps me going strong.

~ "I have one want which I have never yet been able to satisfy, and the absence of the object of which I now feel as a most severe evil, I have no friend, when I am glowing with the enthusiasm of success, there will be none to participate my joy; if I am assailed by disappointment, no one will endeavour to sustain me in dejection. I shall commit my thoughts to paper, it is true; but that is a poor medium for the commumication of feeling. I desire the company of a man who could sympathize with me, whose eyes would reply to mine. You may deem me romantic, but I bitterly feel the want of a friend. I have no one near me, gentle yet courageous, possessed of a cultivated as well as of a capacious mind, whose tastes are like my own, to approve or amend my plans. How would such a friend repair those faults!" ~
Mary Shelley ~ Frankenstein
