In a dark night after winter, Dosu Marisa called to the empty forest. Refreshing Limitation has been released! That command echoes through the forest.
Later, she informed the her small clan again. After long year of being forbidden from refreshing, the yukkuri are very happy. Finally they can do refreshing, they can have really cute and easy little ones.
Dosu's order is only one, raise them like how your parents had raised you.
Most of the clan members choose stalk birth so they can see the face of their cute little ones as soon as possible. Although the mouth to feed has grown, the clan still reduced their hunting time to go home soon and see their children. Because the forest is bountiful and their clan size are small, they don't realize about the problem with sustaining such population explosion.
Only small numbers had mammalian birth, and even those who just do it because they lost control then do another refreshing to have stalk birth. Yukkuri with multiple stalks are also not uncommon.
It's only those who see further to the future who choose mammalian birth on their own will and have at most three children.
After two weeks, the babies fall from their stalks and the emergency food supply in every house is nearly exhausted to cover the lack of food from hunting.
After three weeks, the babies from mammalian birth are born and the clan has realized they're running out of food.
Dosu gathered them and asked if they're running out of food. She then offered the clan to move to her nest cave where there's a lot of food.
A small group of yukkuri stays. These are the yukkuri who choose mammalian birth and hold back. They refused to go to Dosu's cave to eat. One of them, Dosu's assistant, Patchouli said the little ones need to be taught about how to hunt instead of just living lazy life like that.
Dosu asked Patchouli if she remember what her parents taught her. Dosu then asked, if that teaching is like this: never eat the food in the storage until leader gave the order.
It's an order entrusted to the generation of Patchouli's parents by Dosu. If Dosu's teaching is valued 10, then for most of the current generation, they only have 6 left. Of course there are those who received 10 and develop it into 12, such as this Patchouli, but most of the children don't learn.
Now, Dosu ordered them to do "spring hiding", hide in their nest, close the gate and eat from the storage, just like winter. Dosu has called a storm and now the storm is ready.
Patchouli doesn't understand well, but she lead the other yukkuri to prepare and hide in their nest.
To the dark forest night, Dosu proclaimed, Spring Hiding is starting.
A Remirya came answering the order, landing on Dosu's hat.
Of course, Dosu can't betray her clan and let them be eaten by Remirya. She did protect her clan before from Remirya's attack.
The Remirya on Dosu's hat understand that too. Besides, "the clan is doing spring hiding, so it's pointless to attack them". Dosu's skin is also too thick for Remirya to attack. Dosu can easily beat and crush them.
Remirya is leader of a Remirya clan in the forest. She first met with Dosu when her parents attacked this clan and got crushed by Dosu. She's still a child back then, but Dosu likes her because they can settle things with words.
Of course, in any clan there are those who just wont listen, those who can't understand words. Dosu can't do anything for them. Yes, for example, those who not look forward and had a lot of children, those yukkuri who are now in Dosu's cave, eating the food and sleeping.
Remirya flies off, calling Uuu~ Uuu~~ to the forest.
The Remirya clan came like storm and pick up the excess baggage from Dosu's clan back to their own nest. That big harvest will surely be enjoyed for a long time and that will keep peace in Dosu's clan.
In any clan, there are those who just wont listen. Leader Remirya also has such yukkuri in her place, those who are too individualistic and won't obey her charisma. Now, those rebellous Remirya are flying to attack Dosu and the clan hiding in their house.
Dosu will also defend her clan, while cleaning up Remirya's problem.
