Summary by platina:
A well-mannered stray Reimu endures a long string of hardships.
Her child is killed by a bad-tempered human, and her spouse Marisa is killed when she attacks the human, mad with grief.
Next, Reimu remarries a widower Marisa with two little ones, but they are attacked by cats who kill the little ones, and Marisa sacrifices herself, telling Reimu to flee.
Her next spouse is an abandoned former pet Marisa she finds crying in a box in the park. They refresh, and Marisa gets pregnant, but Marisa turns out to be spoiled and selfish, refusing to eat the food Reimu brings, demanding sweet-sweets, and not caring about the fate of their children. One day, Reimu returns home from hunting and finds a Mister abusing Marisa. In the midst of her agony, Marisa expresses pleasure when Mister breaks off her stalk and kills the little ones, so Reimu leaves her to her fate without regret.
Lonely Reimu refreshes with a scum stray Marisa, who loves her and leaves her. As Marisa leaves, she is run over by a car. The driver stops to clean off his car and curses yukkuris, spitting on Marisa's remains.
Reimu sinks into a depression as she realizes that yukkuris should never have been born, that there is no place for them. She comes to a river and decides the world is telling her to throw herself in and kill herself.
However, just then, a group of abusive Misters with an airgun come by. They float Reimu in the river on a Marisa hat and use her for target practice. Reimu writhes and screams in pain as she is shot. At last, they leave her, and she falls into the river and finally dies. Her dying wish is to come back as anything but a yukkuri.
