A clan last three generations
Summary by Salem
This is a wild clan rarely having any contact with human. In the opening, a yukkuri is screaming. It's a Reimu whose house is taken by a scarred Marisa.
This Marisa is known as a scum in the clan. She has taken other yukkuri's home.
Reimu's children is angered and attack Marisa. When yukkuri say they're going to kill someone, they always mean it. But koyukkuri against adult yukkuri, the result is clear. Moreover, the scarred Marisa is stronger than even the father Marisa whose house is taken.
Other yukkuri can't help. They know the difference in their power and this scum Marisa did ahouse declaration properly. She found an empty house, indicated with the door not sealed with barrier. She did the house declaration with witness of other clan yukkuri.
Leader Patchouli arrived and asked about the situation. The family asked Marisa to be punished, but Patchouli refused. Scar Marisa didn't do anything that break yukkuri's universal rules or the clan's rules.
She did proper house declaration perfectly. For Reimu's accusation that Marisa attacked her husband and family, they start it first and Marisa only countered.
But Marisa has did this often, so Patchouli called Marisa to her house to talk.
In her house, Patchouli ordered Marisa to be exiled of the clan. Normally, a yukkuri would start protesting, saying she doesn't do anything wrong. But Marisa doesn't say anything, she's thinking hard.
Finally... "Leader... is your time not long anymore ?"
Patchouli is already old and she want to do one last thing for Marisa, her younger sister.
Both are daughters of the previous Leader Marisa. As eldest daughter, Patchouli received the clan leader position from her father.
Scar Marisa used to be member of the council, but she let go of the position and became a regular member of the clan. Moreover, because she never talk with Patchouli anymore, many in the clan don't know they're sisters.
Patchouli is respected, and in contrary Marisa is hated.
They talked about their family. They father's last will is for her daughters to be an example for the clan. Marisa tried, but the clan only say they understand without actually understanding anything. That's why she starts doing scum actions to show the clan members. Even then they never understand.
Today, Marisa took that family's house in anger. She knew well how difficult their father and the other yukkuri of that time dig that big house under the tree root. But Reimu's family just go out on a picnic happily with no respect to the house.
That's still fine. What made Marisa so angry is they didn't put any barrier. That's like leaving the door of your house opened wide. Marisa rather took the house herself rather than having other scum or wild animal taking that house left by the previous generation.
Patchouli undertsnd, that's why she always protected Marisa. But now she asked Marisa to be the clan leader.
Patchouli is old and dying, she don't know when, but it's soon. Sadly, there's no candidate in the clan despite Patchouli and Marisa's effort to educate them.
The new clan leader would surely allow Marisa to be punished by the clan. Then, she will remove all the clan's rule. They will ignore the refreshing limit, used up the storage and the clan will ends.
But Marisa refused. She's a scum so nobody will listen to her anyway.
That's why Patchouli ordered Marisa to get out of the clan. She doesn't need to die here.
What the clan will become after this is no longer her business.
The news of Marisa being expelled from the clan made the clan yelled in joy, except leader Patchouli. She already gave up on this clan and go to her house to rest.
Five days later, after two winters and seven months of reign, Patchouli died of old age.
New leader is selected by majority vote. They choose the Marisa whose home scar Marisa took. Then by request of the clan, all the rules are cancelled.
Yukkuri enjoys having children, so the refreshing limitation is removed.
Since there's food in the clan's storage, they think it's fine to not go hunting once in a while, even after they used up the emergency rations.
Without scar Marisa who quietly fights back scums and predators, the predators attacked the clan. Some clan members blamed scar Marisa as the culprit of this attack.
Finally, with only koyukkuri and Reimu types left in the clan after predator attacks, the clan disappeared along with winter by failed winter hiding.
Next spring, Marisa returned to her clan.
She remembered the talk she had with her sister when Patchouli has just became leader. Patchouli told of a story she heard from their mother who heard it from a traveler yukkuri.
"A clan last three generations"
First generation works hard to make the clan prosper.
Second generation don't know the hardship, but they have their elders guiding them, so the clan survived.
But those after the third generation know no hardship and they only want to be lazy. That's why most wild yukkuri clan ended in the third generation leader.
Marisa is sad, but they can't do anything. The proverb is really true.
Marisa died of old age during sleep. Her face is very easy.
