Inspired by a story from Italian folklore. 
There was a woman once who had married a man. She didn't know he was a werewolf. "If you ever awake at night and see me not sleeping by your side, don't go looking for 
me" he said to her one day. During their wedding night, after she had fallen asleep, the husband turned into a beast and scurried into the forest. The woman woke up to realise that her husband is gone. Heedless of his advice she went into the woods looking for him. She couldn't find him but the beast found her and savaged her body. After the moonset, when the husband returned to his human form, he realized that he had slain his own wife. He couldn't stand the grief so he killed himself.

---- Picnic (Utopiec) ---
Utopiec or Topielec (plural: Topielce) is a figure from Slavic folklore. Residing in fields, marshes, and water, Topielce were believed to be spirits of people who had died drowning or souls of miscarried children. They were known as malicious beings who sucked and drowned their victims in swamps and lakes.
