“Monsters are fake!” She yells at her mom.
Her mom stares at her five year old daughter with a smirk and an evil look in her eyes, “No, honey. They’re not…” she whispers. “Look around you…” she grabs her daughter’s arm as her daughter lets out a scream.
Her mom’s grip was tight and bruising her arm. She was being dragged to a mirror.
“See!” her mother yells. “Look in there! Now don’t you see a monster!?”
The girl looks at herself in the mirror, crying. She did see a monster. Two in fact. One holding the other by the arm.
