In Search Of Monsters #12: The rain spirit? Ameonna

____
Hello bookworms
I have solved the mystery of my life. As a curly haired girl, I know the pain of looking like the lion king, when it rains, especially when I have done my hair so perfectly.  

After my last dangerous visit in Ireland, while running away from the headless knight, Dullahan, I returned to Japan again. (in my imaginary world, LOL). 
A certain female spirit called Ameonna hates me, therefore she makes it rains everytime my hair is perfect.
She is a female spirit illustrated in Toriyama Sekien's Konjaku Hyakki Shūi. Ameonna is a woman , who stands in the rain, licking her hand. But she is known as a goddess from China's Mount Wushan, who is a cloud in the morning and rains in the evening.  Well, she seems harmless, beside the ruining my hair thing. I forgive her anyways. I’ve had worse. Dullahan almost threw a bucket of blood on me, just because I wanted to interview him. So rude!

Have a great day!
Happy Scary Reading!

  1. I LOVE this! I have curly hair and it seriously feels like every time I get it look somewhat nice, it starts to rain! I'll definitely be thinking of Ameonna next time I step outside and it starts raining on my good hair, haha! :)
