Chapter 8

With every flipped page, Danielle's hope increased. She hadn't stopped reading until she became fully convinced that she was going to find her little girl.

The Mommy Monster lives in the mountains, that was everything she needed. But she found out that it desolates villages every 50 years in order to find itself a child that it would raise and love. That is the reason why it doesn't fit in the category of the monsters who desolate.
