Reimu who did Please Eat Up
"There, Please eat up!"
A stray Reimu did Please Eat Up for her daughters. That moment, she felt great Happyness~~ from pride of knowing she had very strong maternal instinct her daughters will respect and that she will go to the easy place in the sky.
The elder Marisa froze up seeing her mother split in half while the younger Reimu flapped her braids while crying.
Reimu herself hasn't departed yet. She's not sure if she has took it easy forever or not.
What awaits Reimu is just endless pitch black. Nothing to see, nothing to hear, nothing to smell, just a void.
Suddenly, Reimu felt an unpleasant feeling in her. It's like her paste is being stirred, her skin being torn.
Outside in the world, Marisa told her sister to eat their mother together. Actually they don't want to eat their mother who keep on smiling like usual even as she split in two, but this is the reason she split herself. It they don't eat, then their mother's death will became a waste.
The little Reimu then ate her mother happily. So happy, Marisa is getting afraid for a while. But this is really the best food they ever had ever since their father Marisa feed them their stalk with mouth after their birth. No bugs or trash can beat the sweet taste of bean paste.
Even as Reimu is in pain, her body already turn to an usual manju. She can't move, scream or even shed tears. As far as the children can see, their mother is smiling happily for being eaten by them.
After eating, they move to the corner of the cardboard box. The splitted unmoving half-eaten Reimu looks somewhat scary and Marisa also had feeling of guilt.
Little Reimu asked her sister to do rub rub. It feels Happyness because they can sleep with their stomach filled with delicious food.
Marisa can't say it, but she felt slight fear against the sister who can eat their mother like that.
Reimu cried in her heart. She's a chosen yukkuri, why should she end like this ? Of course, nobody will help her.
Reimu was born in this park. Cardboard house are scarce, so they don't make a clan.
One winter, her father Marisa split up and let her grow to a koyukkuri.
One winter, her mother Reimu split up and let her grow to an adult.
After that, one by one her sisters died.
Reimu married her childhood friend Marisa and had two daughter. Marisa is an excellent hunter, so they have a good life together.
But one day after winter, Marisa never came home from her hunt. Nobody know what happened, but Marisa never returned.
Reimu never learned anything other than raising children. Even then, it's nothing more than singing and dancing, nothing useful to cheer up her hungry children. She did the only thing she know, split herself like her parents.
When doing Please Eat Up, yukkuri's paste core will form a protective membrane. This will protect the essence of the yukkuri from dying completely. It also protect the yukkuri's consciousness so they don't get anti-yukkuritis.
The living paste core is very important. This will keep the paste fresh and sweet from the uneasyness. Also because the paste is still alive, there's no death stench.
Finally Reimu gave up. She only wished for her children to quickly finish her.
There's only her paste core left and today, little Reimu will eat it. But Marisa stopped her sister. She doesn't want to lose her mother, the last piece of her mother.
Meanwhile, the little Reimu is angry. Mommy do please eat up so Reimu can eat. Big sis is hogging the paste ball for herself.
Up until now, Marisa never had any quarrel with her sister. She's always a kind and protective sister for Reimu. This is the first time Reimu ever saw her sister crying like now.
Reimu feel uneasy. Doesn't this looks like she's a scum who want to eat her mother ? She's more suiting to be a tragic heroine rather than her crying sister.
That's why Reimu aggreed with Marisa. They will bury the paste ball with Mister Soil and make a grave. Surely their mother will be happy in the afterworld.
Marisa is glad. Her little sister is a kind yukkuri. She felt terrible for even feeling afraid of her sister.
Of course, Reimu is not that kind, she's that Reimu's daughter after all. Her plan is to later take the whole paste ball for herself behind her sister.
Reimu (mother) is in pain. She felt herself being kicked by her ungrateful children. In actually, Marisa only rolled the paste core lightly, but Reimu never realized she's nothing left but her paste core.
Then Marisa took out the Mister Shovel, a plastic spoon their father picked from the trash because it can be used to dig the ground.
While Marisa do so, Reimu played with her mother's paste core. She want to eat it right then, but she doesn't want to be the bad guy, she's the tragic heroine.
After Marisa finished the hold, Reimu just kicked the paste core inside.
As Marisa prayed in front of their mother's grave, Reimu just look pitying about how her sister could think that paste ball is their mother.
Meanwhile, Reimu can only hate her children for not quickly ending her life.
After that, life is difficult for two baby yukkuri without any skill to survive.
The elder sister Marisa look for bitter grass around their home, but those grass will soon runs out. She also wasted her strength and it'll be matter of time before she dies.
Younger sister Reimu still hunt for her mother's paste core. She dug everywhere and bite on a stone she thought is the core. She caught anti-yukkuritis.
Marisa dies, while Reimu will stay alive until her core completely rot underground.
