Monsters

Monsters are fascinating. There are so many mysteries about monsters. Where do they come from? Why are they what they are? What are they? Who are they?

The thing about monsters, the thing that makes them scary, is that they're always hiding. Monsters don't work respectable office jobs and take their kids to the park on weekends. You never see them on the bus, in the mall, or at the coffee shop. Nope, that's not how monsters work. Monsters are under your bed, in your closet, in the middle of a labyrinth, in caves, on mountains. Not places where people normally look. And that's the problem. You never know where a monster might be. You never know until you're too close to get away. And you can never quite get a good look at them either. Monsters are always in the dark...

Maybe that's what's wrong with monsters. They spend all their time alone in the dark. They just keep getting lonelier and lonelier and bitterer and bitterer... We only think they're mean, they just want some company.

Do monsters feel?
