It's just been a few weeks since yukkuri showed up in this town. At first, humans accepted them, enjoying the yukkuri running and cheering and rolling around like cute kids. They even let the yukkuri into their house to play together and then give the yukkuri sweets as present.
But things has changed. The yukkuri showed their true colours. Even uninvited, they still came into peoples' house to ask for food, or hunt for food if the owner is not there.
Problem is, the peoples in this town don't feel good abuot trampling down those yukkuri. While yukkuri can't be taken to a decent communication, they can speak and actually has no bad intention. They don't have any evil intention, but they're simply that kind of creature.
They only think in their own way, never trying to understand what other's saying. When someone say things they don't like, they will start yelling "why would you say that!".
Moreover, in their mind, the world revolves around them so they truly believed that if they can munch munch and take it easy, everyone can take it easy too.
Another reason this working mother can't crush them is because her daughter actually likes these intruder who caused chaos in her house. Lonely of being alone in the house, her daughter opened the door and even gave them sweets. Because of this, the yukkuri grow close to her daughter.
Of course, this couldn't really be a friendship. For what she know, the yukkuri might not think of this big room as house (the yukkuri don't do house declaration), this is just another hunting ground like in the forest where they're living in.
She thought killing the yukkuri is not good for mental development of a five years old. So after sending her daughter to another room, she throw the yukkuri out.
The next day, something different happened. Another type of yukkuri is seen with that family. The yukkuri introduced themselves as the three sisters of "disgusting and annoying kimeemaru". Like they said, the mother think they're really annoying.
Kimeemaru came to strike a deal. Those normal types has been troubling human, so they will do extermination. For payment, human can pay them with vegetable as much as the human think is fitting for their services.
The mother look at this rare type yukkuri. Yukkuri are yukkuri, they take advantage of peoples. But compared to that Reimu and Marisa, Kimeemaru is far better. Kimeemaru know to ask for something in exchange for her service instead of simply demanding them.
Kimeemaru's deal also say that they will never ask for the vegetable again in later days and payment can be done after their job is finished. If within 7 days that family ever came to this house again, the human can take it that Kimeemaru has failed and not need to pay anyhing.
She thought, there's nothing to lose here, after all, Kimeemaru just ask for some vegetables.
Back in her home under a tree in the forest, Marisa and Reimu comforted their children. Kimeemaru moves hastily, an uneasy move hated by yukkuri. They also, like Remirya and Fran, like to play with their prey (although they don't eat yukkuri).
First, Kimeemaru throw in a pack of poo poo inside. The smell is so sickening for adults, the childrens are about to vomit their paste. To protect her dearest little ones, Marisa forced herself to throw the leaf pack outside.
Even though Marisa has often cleaned her own children's poo poo, a stranger's excretion bring an uncomparably uneasy feeling.
Outside after throwing the poo poo away, Marisa found Kimeemaru watching from far away.
Marisa understand that Kimeemaru is strong. Because of that she feel it strange that Kimeemaru don't just attack them directly, after all Marisa can't win.
After that, every 1~2 hours, Kimeemaru throw various uneasy thing into Marisa's nest. Poo poo, rotten fruit, dead body of small animals.
The most uneasy is the accessories of dead yukkuri. Imagine having a mutilated head rotting with exposed brain filled with maggots thrown into your house. That's how uneasy it feels for Marisa's family.
The attack continues even to midnight, disturbing their sleep sleep time. The family is not only tired, the fatigue is giving them mental stress.
Yukkuri forget about hunger when they sleep, but being awakened in the midnight, the children ate through the emergency food storage.
Finally in the morning, Marisa had to go hunting for her family.
As soon as Marisa went away, Kimeemaru bring a branch to stick into Marisa's nest, scaring her family.
Marisa's logic say they're beyond help. Even if Marisa go there, she will just be one more dead yukkuri, stabbed to death by Kimeemaru.
But yukkuri are ruled by their emotion. Following her feeling, Marisa runs and prepared to die protecting her family.
That never happened because Kimeemaru soon distanced herself and just smile and the puffing Marisa.
When Marisa think Kimeemaru gave up, she went to hunting again. Same thing happened, Kimeemaru go to intimidate Marisa's family.
There's more that one Kimeemaru changing shift in scaring Marisa's family. They stay from killing anyone, just scaring them.
Finally Marisa understands and bring her family out to hunt. The safest place is in mommy's mouth, but because the saliva would melt koyukkuri, now the children are sleeping on Reimu's head.
Normally yukkuri will keep their hunting ground a secret for themselves, but today Marisa had no choice. She brought her family to a flower field by the riverside.
Just as the children is about to eat, Kimeemaru came and trample the flowers. They also pee pee on the flowers, making them inedible.
After that, Kimeemaru keep on disturbing Marisa's hunt. What angered Marisa the most is because Kimeemaru don't eat any of the food they steal from Marisa. They trample on it or throw it somewhere out of reach. Kimeemaru are not doing this to get food, it's simply an evil intention against the family.
In the end, they never found any food or managed to escape Kimeemaru.
Baby yukkuri need to eat every six hours. Although the children has grown bigger, they're still in the growing state so they need a lot of food.
Just as the children is about to die, Kimeemaru came and thrown something on the children. Grass, most are drying brown grass. All of them are the bitter bitter thing yukkuri is not interested in. But now, there's nothing else the children can eat to survive.
When coming home, they found that the other Kimeemaru has thrown all kind of uneasy things inside. Even if cleaned, the smell will never be gone. Marisa must take her family to look for another home. KoMarisa is crying for her treasure still left inside, but they have no more choice.
After that, days after days Marisa's family move with Kimeemaru tailing them. They're never allowed to sleep longer than two hours.
The only time Kimeemaru would confront them directly is when Marisa tries to enter human's home or ask for food.
When hunting, Kimeemaru never let them eat what they want. When they're on verge of death, Kimeemaru would throw them just enough bitter grass or rotten trash to let them stay barely alive.
When they're about to take a bath, when they want to sleep on soft grass, everytime the family stopped their feet Kimeemaru would come to make them feel uneasy.
At the first two days of this run, the family can still blame each others. But on the third day, they're all too tired to even do that.
At night, the children's mind reached their limit. They have given up life and death, after all, Kimeemaru will bring them food to keep them alive.
That night, after a long time, the family slept without any disturbance. Marisa thought, maybe Kimeemaru has given up. But it's not so.
Next to the family, KoReimu is dead. Her eyes are stabbed with stick. Her ribbon is torn and stuck into the mouth which all her teeths are pulled out. Her hairs are all plucked out, leaving only the braids. Her mamu mamu is stretched wide with stick stabbing inside. From her widely torn anyaru, her paste core is stuck. Her whole body is filled with scars.
Kimeemaru want them to suffer. When Reimu and Marisa is digging grave for their child, Kimeemaru came close to watch and laugh at them.
After that, the family can't rest anymore. They know that if they fell asleep, they will be killed. The only way is to stay awake in shift.
But yukkuri are weak. When tired and sleepy, they can't help but fell asleep. Marisa fell asleep and KoMarisa got killed like KoReimu.
Angered Reimu declared a divorce. She's not going to die with Marisa.
Marisa is scared. Yukkuri is easy to feel lonely. If they can't eat, sleep and share happyness with their kind, their happyness is incomplete. Now for Marisa, their survival also depend on taking turn to keep watch at night.
The next day, by noon, something is dropped on Marisa's head. It's Reimu's corpse.
Marisa breaks and quickly run to the river.
Yukkuri focuses on today's easyness, not what will happen tomorrow. Because of this, they don't easily give up on live. But now Marisa is running to death.
Marisa doesn't understand why this would happen to her. She only want to take it easy, living a happy life with her family. And yet, day after day only suffering.
After Marisa made up her mind, she jumped into the river.
Even that is not allower because the three Kimeemaru pulled her out and made her vomit out the water.
Marisa begged to be killed, but no answer from Kimeemaru.
Marisa asked them to leave her, she's going back home. Again, no answer at all, they just sneered at her.
Finally at night falls, Marisa is too tired. The pain from her feet reached her core. Her eyes are covered in paste colour. Her tongue stretched out, dry and cracked.
When Marisa collapsed, Kimeemaru came.
They stabbed her eye and stirred on her paste. The pain quickly kills all Marisa's resolution to die. Pain is uneasy, so yukkuri will try to avoid it. Even when they already lost all hope, they still want to avoid pain.
Everytime Marisa stopped moving, they will stab her.
Marisa want to die surrounded by her children who will mourn for her. Not to die here in horrible state and surrounded by those who laughed at her death.
Finally after stabbing, they pulled her hair one by one. They showed Marisa her own hat getting torn bits by bits.
Even though Marisa knows the hat is beyond any salvation, she followed her instinct to beg and crawl to Kimeemaru.
After her last eye got stabbed, Kimeemaru starts pulling out Marisa's teeth one by one to keep Marisa running.
After Marisa collapsed, they took a stick and stab it to Marisa's anyaru. Paste bleed out and robbed the strength from Marisa, leaving her twitching.
Marisa's suffering lasted until daybreak. Until then, her mamu mamu is stabbed and her inside got stirred without mercy, bringing excruciating pain Marisa couldn't even imagine existing in this world.
A week after the job, Kimeemaru came back to the house and get their payment.
The human asked them how they do it, but Kimeemaru keep it as their business secret. They worried that human would hesitate to request help again if they know about the method used.
But they will stick around when other yukkuri came. They're busy so they might not be able to accept the offer, but they will always prioritize a client that pay them the most.
Yukkuri had different way to interact with human, the unknown creature far stronger than them yet able to bring easyness. Kimeemaru choose this way of interacting with human.
Today, the three sisters is leaving to the neighbouring town. They heard there's an Alice who make trouble with local pets. It's been a while since they last dealed with an Alice.
