"Cute Maricha is being born easy! Let the whole world congratulate!"
Suddenly the baby yukkuri hanging from the stalk opened its eyes and shakes.
"Easy! Easy! Friend of the world, good afternoon! Cute Maricha is being born je!"
The usual yukkuri birth, followed by proud exclamation of their species' favourite phrase, "Take it easy!"
There's no reply or praise Maricha is expecting to receive. In fact, there's nobody around. After protesting, Maricha tried posing again, but of course, there's nobody to answer.
Then she starts to cry. If she looks troubled, there should be someone who can't let her alone right ?
Unable to bear the lonelyness, Maricha cried for her parents. Using just the faint knowledge she inherited, Maricha know there should be her parents who will reply her greeting and feed her with the stalk where she's grown from.
Said parents are dead a long time ago. Their whole body and accessories have turned black and rot.
Suddenly, Maricha smelled a foul smell and tried running away, but something stopped her.
A week passed, although Maricha who lived in darkness only feel like it's been a long time since she's born. Everyday she only sleep and then look for food.
Not all the food suit her taste and she even vomitted paste. But yukkuri are persistent creature and to stay alive she swallow back her own paste before continuing to look for food. Sometimes, her feet are wet, another time her teeth are broken by hard food. But her light of hope is when sometime bright light came from the sky and more delicious meal will came down.
What arrived are bitter and spicy food. Maricha closed her eyes and swallow the trash bit by bit. "Puke gross... unhappyness... unhappyness..."
Seems like there's a yukkuri living in my trash can. The colour has changed black, I can't tell the type anymore. How did they get in there anyway ? But seems like it can't get out, so I tried using it as compost yukkuri.
Unfortunately, it doesn't go well. The trash are smelly and it doesn't really reduce the trash.
I'll just throw it out with the trash in the next trash collection day. After all, yukkuri are just walking trash.
