Maricha's Easy Hat
Three weeks ago, Mister bought a silver badge pet Marisa. Marisa is very energetic and jump around in the room everyday. She send Mister every morning and greeted him every night. Even though Mister loved her very much, she didn't turn into scum.
One day, Mister played hide and seek with Marisa. Actually, he want to see Marisa enjoyed herself.
Wild yukkuri usually lives in hole under tree roots, that's why yukkuri feel save when hiding in small spaces. For koyukkuri Marisa, such place is under the seat cushion, where she always went to hide. Of course, since she doesn't hide her bottom, Mister always easily found her, but Marisa doesn't give up and went to look for another place.
Only today, a tragedy happened. Marisa's hat got caught in the furniture's corner and it's ripped in two.
Marisa cried for her very easy hat, saying she can't be easy. That's not totally wrong because in the wild, yukkuri who doesn't have accessory will be called uneasy and got lynched by the other yukkuri.
Mister had to let her sleep using Ramune.
Being a beginner, there's many thing he still didn't expect from yukkuri, such as how depressed Marisa is from losing her hat.
The next day, Marisa hide herself in her pet house and still really depressed. Mister decided, today after work he will go to pet shop and buy a replacement hat.
He never expected so many hat though. From 1'000 to 10'000 Yen with various size and design. Being a total beginner, he never know there's so much choice. Maybe it's better to bring Marisa to choose for herself.
Shop staffs are busy with other customers, so Mister asked a Miss who seems to love her pet Yuuka-nyan very much.
Miss is taking her beloved Yuuka-nyan to buy yukkuri gardening tools. While Yuuka is choosing, she go to the abyuse corner, just to look at the huge variety of products.
There, he meet with a man who's looking at abyuse Marisa hats. The man asked for her help and say he's still a beginner, which made Miss interested. Abyuse-use accessories are used by experienced abyuser, not beginners.
Miss think that this Mister is a beginner abyuser who's still embarassed for a coming out. He even say his Marisa accidentally ripped her hat, but the truth is, he's the one who ripped it, right ?
Miss loved her Yuuka, and nice to other person; but she doesn't care the least for other yukkuri, even other people's pet. Kindly as a senior, she introduced and helped Mister to pick the (abyuse) hat for Marisa.
Yuuka had a lot of things in her head.
First, she had a feeling that this Mister doesn't lie, but why is he in the abyuse corner ? Second, she feels like heaven being hugged close to Miss' breast. Third, Yuuka remember the words of Miss' Mister Papa who often came to pet her.
Mister Papa is worried about bad guys approaching his daughter.
Yuuka then asked if Miss is hungry. It's stupid, but Miss followed and they went home since it's getting late. For Yuuka, she just doesn't want Miss got forced to Refreshed! with an unknown man until she goes all ahegao double peace.
Back at home, Marisa is still depressed. She hides all day in her house, licking the remains of her hat. She doesn't even touch her meal.
When Mister reached to her, she's very afraid. Many yukkuri can't recognize other yukkuri without their accessories, so Marisa is afraid Mister can't recognize her. Of course Mister can and is soothing Marisa.
He bought "Yukkuri food Super Tasty! taste" too, but Marisa doesn't make sound when eating happily like usual.
After meal, Mister gave Marisa the hat. He bought the most expensive model which Miss said is made from accessories harvested in the factory and later worked by artisans. This hat will grow with yukkuri, strong, and difficult to get loose, very good for the active Marisa.
At first, Marisa is very enthusiastic, until she wore the hat and went into panic. The hat can't be taken off no matter how much Marisa trashed around and tried pushing the hat with her braid.
Meanwhile, the clueless Mister thought Marisa is happy.
Marisa begged Mister to take the hat off because it smells very uneasy. Mister doesn't understand about death stench, he only commented that the hat smells sweet.
Well, death stench is something only yukkuri understand. The hat Marisa is wearing is made by abyuser who has killed 100 Marisa with 100 different ways, all while wearing this hat. It's not an easy task because most yukkuri would caught anti-yukkuritis just by wearing the hat because they can emphatize with the feeling of the previous owners. That's why it needs a very experienced abyuser to make this hat.
Usually Marisa is feed with normal tasted yukkuri food that contain many vitamins. Today, she's also feeded with high quality food that helps yukkuri avoid anti-yukkuritis, so Marisa doesn't immedieatly die from the shock and stench.
One by one, Marisa experienced the abyuse from the previous owners. Paste starts to foam from her mouth.
Seeing this, Mister got worried, he realized something is wrong. Bad for Marisa, he thought this is because of the tasty food he gave. He read a note on the food box that say yukkuri's taste buds can be resetted by feeding them yukkuri food with "negii!" taste.
Mister is not sure, maybe it means negi (leek), that's good for health. He feeded Marisa with the small pack of the yukkuri food and Marisa screamed "negii! negii!"
This yukkuri food tasted many times worse that the "wanna puke!" taste. Usually yukkuri will say "this is poisoned!" and spit out the food when they ate something spicy or bitter, yukkuri could even die instantly from shock. "negii!" taste is special, it's spicy and bitter, but won't pose any risk to yukkuri's life; in contrary, it's very nutritious.
For yukkuri who has weak tolerance to bad taste, this is an unpoisoned poison, very bitter medicine.
Marisa went crazy and starts banging herself against the wall. By luck, the hat got off from her head and Marisa lost her consciousness.
Next morning, Mister awake and greeted by Marisa.
Marisa is not a stupid yukkuri, so she thought a lot. With her paste brain, she think that yesterday Mister is punishing her for not letting him take it easy. Marisa remember she didn't greet Mister at all. Now, she ask for forgiveness.
Mister is still clueless, but he's happy to see Marisa being happy again.
He want to give the hat again, but Marisa went pale and pick up a bottle cap. Bottle cap is enough for Marisa. Well, anything as long as Marisa is happy.
Mister went to the kitchen to prepare breakfast, all the while Marisa is bowing and speaking her gratitude.
Mister is always think that Marisa who happily smile and jump around is cute. But he remembered Marisa's crying and screaming face from last night, that's also strangely appealing.
Inside him, a dark feeling is growing.
