Hey, this is my first "Dear Frankie" fanphic! I loved the movie and I just had to write something on it. Here is the first chapter. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I own none of the characters.

Frankie's POV

I knew he wasn't my dad. I figured it out when he kept forgetting I was deaf. Why would he forget that when I was deaf because of him? But that's fine with me. I prefer a total stranger who cares about me over someone I know who doesn't any day. Still, I wish he were here, the stranger…

I sit and practice skipping rocks. I keep following his instructions, but I haven't had much success. Oh, well. Practice makes perfect.

I feel a tap on my shoulder. I don't acknowledge whoever it is right away. I'm to depressed to talk to anyone. After a few more taps, I turn around and find him.

"Hello…Frankie."
