Blue Ran and White Chen
In the early morning, a bodied Ran is kneeling down to pick up the grass. She throw it up and see the blades sparkling under the sunlight, showing that they're having good grasses this year.
Without wasting time, she called Chen. This Chen is a four legged Chen, quite a rare breed. For rich yukkuri, four legged yukkuri are treated like horse. Because of Ran's high status, this Chen is his horse and they have been together ever since they're young.
They head to a place with tents. This is the home of a nomadic clan. They move with their cattles, following the grass that become the cattles' feed.
Inside her own tent that's close to the biggest tent in the clan, Ran is greeted by a bodied Remirya.
Bodied yukkuri who hates fighting, weak and stupid are usually used as public slave. Some who showed potential are used as personal maid by the ruling class. This Remirya is the stupid kind. She's been serving Ran's family since Ran is still a child, so for Ran, Remirya is like her nanny.
Ran is the fourth child of Dosu Yukari, leader of this clan. Yukari is a bodied yukkuri and not exactly a Dosu like the usual Dosu Marisa. In human civilization, there are kings who titled themselves Caesar, from the name of Caesar himself. For this nomadic clan, Dosu simply means king.
Remirya brought meal for Ran, a normal yukkuri Marisa with body sliced open using stone knife. This Marisa is one of the cattle and has been killed quickly with a direct pierce with stick to her paste core.
When Ran told Remirya she can rest, Remirya blushed and pardon herself.
Love between yukkuri are about feelings. They easily fall in love with others who are kind to them. Ran know this Remirya likes her and she's been contemplating about it.
When she's about to continue her meal, a messenger came. Her father is asking to meet her.
Next to Ran's father is a bodied Ran and non-bodied Eirin.
There has been an accident and Eirin is explaining to Ran that the cattle has made an escape.
Non-bodied yukkuri here are treated as cattles. After all, they're weak and useless. Unlike stupid bodied yukkuri, they can't be used as slave, so they're raised with grass to be made into sweets sweets.
Eirin, despite being non-bodied yukkuri, is a very rare breed and smart, so she's granted the position to serve the Dosu.
But useless bodied yukkuri like the Reimu who let the cattles to escape are public slave. For her mistake, that Reimu famous for her lazyness had her accessories destroyed.
The leader of the escape are Reimu and Marisa. Both are like leader among the cattles.
The bodied yukkuri know that community is needed for the cattles to survive, but at the same time, it also pose them with risk of mutiny like this. Normally the only leader is executed to crush the rebellion, but Yukari declared that all the cattles who escaped are to be executed.
To the leader Marisa, she already realized that she's been in too much hurry. Filled with the thought of being killed and eaten, Marisa has led the cattles to escape when seeing chance.
But now, they're running endlessly to escape, to reach the easyness they dreamed of.
Suddenly, a Chen is down by arrow. The shot missed her paste core, so she's just immobilized.
Their chasers are group of bodied yukkuri riding four legged yukkuri. They're the guards under Ran, the elite force of the clan.
Seeing this, the cattles spread out. Even so, their physical abilities are far below bodied yukkuri, let alone those riding four legged yukkuri.
A bodied Marisa with wooden stick as spear riding four legged Reimu chased and stabbed the cattles one by one without killing them.
Another bodied yukkuri shoot arrows to the cattles, immobilizing them.
In the end, Ran captured the leader Marisa and brought them back to the clan. The leaders are stabbed with stick and left to die in the middle of the place they kept the cattles. The rest are eated by the clan as warning.
Marisa and Reimu wont die quick, it will take maybe a week before they can be free from their suffering.
Ran likes the life in this clan, but she's worried too about her family. As the youngest child, she doesn't have much political power compared to her elder sisters. Moreover, her father always entrust her with dirty jobs like this.
She had a dream. She will be Dosu and one day, she will go to the sea to conquer it. But for that to happen, she will first have to become a Dosu.
