On the streetside, a Reimu is calling to human. She asked to be given a job, she will do anything.
Previously, Reimu is part of a civic yukkuri clan living in the park. They're given food by the park management for their work.
But Reimu followed a Marisa who said she doesn't want to stay in the uneasy place any longer. That's how Reimu and Marisa quit their job, leave the clan and start as strays.
It doesn't take a week before their marriage life ends.
Now it has already been three days since Reimu last eat. She's hungry, and she knows very well humans wont give her food for free. That's why she asked for job. She's too late to realize how fortunate she is to have a job back then.
So hungry, Reimu starts crying. But food wont rain down from the sky, neither does sweet sweets wont grow from the ground. Crying there is only a waste of the little strength she had left.
She had some arguing back then, so Reimu can't go back to the park either.
Then, a Miss gave Reimu some chocolate. Such sweetness brings happyness to the very hungry Reimu. For a while, Reimu enjoyed that feeling.
But soon she realize, that's not solving any of the problem. She can't return to the park. Dumpsters are already protected from yukkuri. The feeding sites still available are all ruled by other strays. She will die in few days anyway.
That's why Reimu asked this kind Miss for a job.
"But Reimus is already doing a great job."
"you might not realize it, but all stray yukkuri is born with a job in their hand. That job is to show your dirty self and invite cynical laugh from human."
"No matter what sugar-coating they use, human feel easy if they can look down on others. But looking down on other humans is not ethically right and will invite troubles. That's why we need something like you.
Something so weak and foolish. Something so selfish without realizing how dirty you are. Something lower than trash, called stray yukkuri.
Watching your unsightly cruel and meaningless death made me feel easy. It reminds me not to be like you."
"But... that's not easy."
"I know. That's why I thanked Reimu and all the strays in the world. Please continue to live your totally uneasy yukkuri life. Your sacrifice is really invaluable."
Miss doesn't show any bad intention, but her words is hurting Reimu.
Reimu screamed up. Yukkuri is alive and even strays want to take it easy.
"So, Reimu, tell me, where is that easy stray you're talking about ?"
"Eating trash with eyes like dead fish; constantly fearing Factory and other animals; abusing your kind, lying, stealing, hurting, and even eating each others. Dried to death in summer, starved and frozen to death in winter. Even in spring and summer you still die in cruel way. Isn't that how you strays are doing ? Or probably you think that's an easy life ?"
Miss praised Reimu's expression when realizing that's how strays live. This is the result of her following Marisa.
"I'm going home now, Reimu. Do your best with your job. You'll most likely die miserably in a few days, but you should never lose hope. Keep on doing that useless and miserable effort to grasp the easyness that never exist. I enjoyed that kind of comedy you are doing."
Reimu thought of what that Miss said.
What is Reimu ? What's the meaning of living an uneasy life ? So yukkuri are born to feel uneasy ? Can an uneasy yukkuri even be called yukkuri ?
Reimu cried and laughed.
The next morning, Miss found Reimu's dead body. She dried up after crying all night. The best thing for Miss, Reimu's face is an expression anguish and despair.
