In chapter 16, the cottagers depart from the cottage in fear of the monster they witnessed. The landlord does not believe them. The creature burns down the vacated cottage in fire, unhappy. The monster details how he saves a young girl from a river, only to be shot at by her companion. The monster heads for Geneva, since he finds from Victor's journals that he is from there. At Geneva, he sees young William, whom he intends to abduct at first. The monster confesses to murdering the young boy and planting the locket in innocent Justine Moritz's pockets while she sleeps!

The monster requests a female companion and promises to leave Victor alone upon its creation.

In chapter 17 the monster promises to leave Victor alone and retire to South America upon creation of his female companion. He is a vegetarian and claims therefore to be harmless to animals too. Victor's heart is heavy and does not know whether he's telling the truth or if more destruction will be caused upon creation of the female.

In chapter 18 Victor decides to head to England where he will pursue creating the female. Upon his return he vows to his father that he and Elizabeth should get married. Victor thus meets Henry Clerval at Strasbourg and they both head for England while Victor has a heavy heart. Unlike Victor, Henry Clerval thoroughly enjoys their journey through the countries and the natures on the road trip to England.
