This is another flash fiction challenge I am attempting from Chuck Wendig’s blog terribleminds. The idea is to take a spam email and morph it into a horror genre flash fiction piece. After some hard thought, I decided to tweak it just a smidgen. I hope you enjoy it.

*NOTE: Like all original work on this blog (not including readings from magazines or books), stories and poems are unedited first drafts.

Mr. Frankenstein,

Mr. Frankenstein,

We are sorry to inform you that you’re scheduled surgery appointment has been canceled. At this point in time we do not have the technology to leech the green tinted color from your skin, nor do we specialize in the whitening of the sclera. We also do not have the capabilities to remove the small, dumbbell-like screws from your neck — although we suggest you consult a trauma surgeon in the near future.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope that you will accept a free, full-body massage (as you seem a bit stiff lately).

Sincerely,

Dr. Geneva
