Justine Moritz

Geneva Switzerland

My name is Jsutine Moritz. I have never had an easy
life, but I am greatful for what I do have. I was always a daddy's girl, because my mother was not very nice to me, but when my father died I was devastated.He had always been there to comfort me but now he was gone and I was alone(Frankenstein 49). After his death, my mother started abusing me. It becameunbearable, but what was I to expect as she was never fond of me (Frankenstein49). Luckily Madame Frankenstein soon observed my mother's treatment towards me; she told my mother that she would take me and I would be a house maid. But she did so much more for me. She treated me as one of her own children!

Suddenly MadameFrankenstein fell ill after taking care of Elizabeth, my also adopted cousin. I felt it was my duty to take to nurse her back to health, as she had helped me so when I was in trouble. But there was nothing I could do, the disease was just too strong, and she soon passed away (Frankenstein 50). Soon after Madame Frankenstein's death, I hear news of my blood brother and sister's deaths, and how my mother regrets her treatment towards me. I moved into her home to live with her again, hoping things had changed for the better. But sadly as the winter set in so did a disease. She soon passed away too. So confused and
emotionally damaged with all the death occurring; I moved back into the home of
the Frankenstein's. Yet once again I would have to deal with tragedy. My cousin
dear William, who was the Frankenstein's youngest boy was murdered, and I was
blamed for committing the dead as I was found with Madame Frankenstein's miniature portrait necklace (Frankenstein 62)." I am innocent. But I do not pretend that my protestations should acquit me; I rest my innocence on a plain and simple explanation of the facts which have been adduced against me, and I hopethe character I have always borne will incline my judges as a favorable
interpretation where any circumstance appears doubtful or suspicious."
(Frankenstein 65).

But sadly, not one single person besides Elizabeth and Victor, my cousins, believed me. So I was sentenced to death. I know that I am in a better place now. Because, I am with my brother, sister, mother, and beloved Madame Frankenstein, where disease and other hardships cannot plague us anymore.
