20. Monsters Like Sunny Days without Being Chased by Angry Mobs with Pitchforks

Can you imagine a better sunny afternoon than one spent sitting by a pond on a picnic blanket with a friend and a basket of snacks? It’s peaceful, idyllic, and relaxing.

Now imagine that beautiful picnic being interrupted by a mob of angry townspeople carrying torches, clubs, and all manner of weapons, coming straight toward you and your friend in hopes of a pre-dinner lynching.

Kills the mood, doesn’t it?

Seems like even a quiet, well mannered, monster can’t spend one afternoon just enjoying some peace and quiet while he recovers from the raiding, pillaging, and general destruction of the night before.

Everyone needs a day off now and then, even hairy, disfigured, blood-sucking beasts from Hell. So please, if you’re out to get revenge for your daughter that was eaten alive or brother whose beating heart was pulled directly out of his chest, give a monster a break. At least let him enjoy his sunny afternoon off first.
