“I want us to set a date for our wedding, said Frankie the Monster, to his fiancée, Anna. “I want to get married as soon as we can.”
“Would tomorrow be soon enough?” asked Anna.
“Tomorrow is Halloween,” said Frankie.
“I know,” said Anna. “We are going to be dressing up as a bride and groom. I can’t think of a better time.”
“I wasn’t expecting that but the more I think about it,” said Frankie. “The more I like it.”
“Let’s not tell anyone,” said Anna. “We will surprise everyone at the Halloween party tomorrow night.”
“That would be perfect, “said Frankie. “Shouldn’t I tell Marvin, though. I want him to be my best man.”
Marvin was a homeless man that lived in a dumpster outside of the diner Anna worked at in Cabbagetown, Toronto, Ontario. He was Frankie’s best friend.
“Don’ t tell him,” said Anna. “Just make sure he comes to the party.”
Halloween night came along. Anna was dressed in a beautiful cream-coloured wedding gown. She looked gorgeous. Frankie was dressed in a tuxedo and he looked very handsome, even for a monster.
“Friends,” Frankie announced at the Halloween party. “Anna and I would like to invite you all to our wedding.”
“You two finally set a date,” said Marvin. “When is the wedding?”
“Right now,” said Frankie.” Marvin, I would love for you to be my best man.”
“Of course,” said Marvin, after the initial shock wore off and he realized Frankie was serious.
“Question?” asked Marvin. “Does Anna know?”
“It was her idea,” said Frankie.
“Okay,” said Marvin. “We have a wedding to attend.”
“We sure do,” said Frankie.
