Part 10 – A New Life (AKA ‘Frank’)
I looked over at Dr. F. and was surprised to see that he also had tears in his eyes.
He smiled, a rare occurrence which I had just witnessed twice in as many minutes.
“Maybe you didn’t get the implications of all of this,” the doctor said. “I’ll tell you a little story.
“I wasn’t always a mad scientist,” he said. He looked at me. In the past I would have made a stupid comment at this point, but I could see he was serious. I nodded for him to continue. “No, I was a respectable man from a respectable family. Continue reading
Part 9 – A New Life (AKA ‘Frank’)
Wow, where does the time go? I’ve been spending at least ten hours every day going through the mountains of work Dr. F has given me and spend the rest of my waking moments studying. The doctor said he forgot that I’d started with a clean slate and so created a curriculum that began at a preschool level. I’ve been flying through everything and am up to undergraduate courses in most subjects. The doctor says I’m the first person in history to go from the rudiments of counting to differential equations in a little over two months.
Our little school helps with the monotony of my work. If you remember… oh, wait, I never told you about my work, did I? Continue reading
Part 8 – A New Life (AKA Frank)
My dungeon wasn’t locked this morning. I’m not sure if it’s a good sign or a bad sign. Doctor F, of course, knows I can break out anyway, so perhaps he’s just saving me the trouble.

AAAABBBBCCCC – Test, test. 1234567890 OK. Hello?
Sorry. I’m just starting my journal and everything is so new. Dr. F. has been helping me with my language. Dr. F. is always looking out for my interests. I decided writing is the best way to practice since I’m currently pretty isolated – I’m sure you’re impressed with that word, “isolated”, since I just learned to write last week. I’m still learning to talk and language is just so new to me.
Maybe I should start from the beginning. Continue reading
Part 7 New Life Series (AKA Frank)
I can’t believe how stupid I was. I should’ve seen it coming. Maybe I should’ve covered my tracks better. Perhaps I shouldn’t have downloaded the half a terabyte of books, pictures and video. A man’s got to learn, doesn’t he? Not that I’m human, but you know what I mean.
I’ll take you back to yesterday evening so you know my plight. Continue reading
