Victor – A Monster’s Diary – Entry 16 – Family
I have been doing a lot of thinking about my family today. It was 160 years ago that my wife took my two children and ran off. I never saw them again. That was the most hurtful thing that has ever happened to me.
I don’t blame my wife for leaving me. The spell that Helga put on me 160 years ago turned me into the ugly monster that I am now. My wife deserved better. However, I would have liked to have had the chance to explain to my children, Emily and Joshua, what happened.
I know that my wife and two kids are no longer living. I do often wonder about future generations though. I must have some great-great-great-grandchildren.
I think about what it would be like to meet my great-great-great-grandchildren but then I think about how that may affect them. It would be hard to explain to them about the spell and the fact that I am a 200 year old monster. I believe they may be better off not knowing me.
Earlier this morning though, I did get an email message from a young man by the name of David. He is doing some research on his family tree and he believes he is one of my long lost relatives.
I debated contacting David and I wasn’t going to but curiosity did get the better of me. I am meeting with David tonight. He is going to come over to the house. He said he has photographs of past generations to show me.
I am so excited but also very nervous as well. I just don’t know that to expect and if David is my relative, what will he think of me.
