One Year in a Farm - 2
In the forest, a yukkuri family is troubled. Father Marisa is licking the feet of her child Alice who's lightly hurt.
This happen often and Alice wanted to move to a better home. Their house has many rocks scattered around the place.
Problem is, their house is already the best around the place. Marisa is one of the best hunter and nest digger in the clan. The problem is that they live in a rocky mountain. Even with yukkuri's strength, they soon reaches the rock bed.
Those stones are dangerous for the soft skin of koyukkuri.
During her hunt, Marisa met Patchouli who listened to her problem and remembered a story from her grandmother. Once upon a time, Patchouli's grandmother go down the mountain and suddenly out of nowhere, a door opened up to a legendary easy place. It's then called Mayoiga.
Legend said, the easy yukkuri who entered it came home with magical treasure such as the red cup that gave them food.
Marisa made up her mind. She go home and take her family to look for the place. Alice first hesitated because mayoiga is just a legend. But Marisa ensured her, even if they found nothing, they can always go back to their old home. This will just be like a picnic.
So they walk down the mountain and finally reached the stone stair used by human. After descending the stair with children in Marisa's hat, they walked across a street with nothing around it.
As hunter, Marisa's instinct told her there's something. Quickly she took out a sharp branch and prepared herself.
What she found is a floating door and inside that is a ground with soil that look so soft.
Marisa and Alice came into the place and look around. That mysterious place is so huge. Marisa look around while Alice took straws scattered on the ground to start making bed and coordinating the place. There's not much materials here, but she can still take their things from home.
The children jumps happily.
When the children is hungry, they eat the packed lunch they bring from home. This is really a scene of happy yukkuri family's lunch.
Marisa did a house declaration, but mayoiga is too big. Marisa told her family, they will invite other yukkuri to stay, but as the easy yukkuri chosen by mayoiga, they will be the ruler and other yukkuri must obey them for being allowed to live in this legendary easy place.
Alice put her children to the bed. Marisa will go out to hunt while Alice go home to pick up the furniture and little ones' treasures.
Only the easy can enter mayoiga, and the children are future king and queen of this place. There shouldn't be any problem isn't it ?
Maricha and Alish then waited. They sing, do poo poo gym and told story about their future dreams. After a while, they got bored and Maricha shocked her little sister by becoming Mister "Snake", camouflaging herself with straws.
At first, Alish is shocked by the talking clump of straw, but after knowing it's her sister, she quickly wrapped herself to a clump of straw too, her wedding dress.
They're shocked when a very uneasy vibration arrived. The farmer is plowing the land and he's surprised to see two straw balls near his feet.
The two little yukkuri's disguise is perfect. If there's a total extermination, these two might be able to run away and survive.
They're not so lucky today though. The Farmer just bury both with soil and continue with his work. He also think he heard yukkuri's voice, so he had to check around the place after this.
Strangely, the yukkuri here can't perceive plastic sheet and thus they can't see the Farmer's plastic house. Thanks to this, yukkuri don't come to his farm. Once in a while though, yukkuri would peek in through the opened door. Maybe for them, this is like a floating door in the air, opening up to different world.
Maricha and Alish can't move. Hearing her sister, Maricha first demanded, then begged to the soil to move.
A light of hope came when she heard a sound coming, maybe her father will come to save them. Unfortunately, that's the sound of the human's feet and he stepped on the ground, crushing Maricha.
He's surprised and remembered this is where he buried the two balls. It's squishy... so he thought something is wrong with the fertilizer storage and quickly go to check it.
Alish is alive, but less fortunate than Marisa. The fertilizer mixed to the straw would react and create strong antiseptic agent. The chemical attacked Alish' soft skin and bring her endless pain.
Meanwhile outside, Marisa and Alice came back with food from hunting and stuffs from their home. The door to mayoiga has been closed though, and they can't find that easy place nor their little ones anymore.
It's night and Remirya spots the two sweets sweets.
