Haha... Hahaha! THIS is what you were hiding from? This little girl?
Little blonde with red ribbon in her hair looks around your little camp.
"Is anyone there?"
Hearing no response, she shrugs.
"I thought someone was here a second ago... Well, no matter! At least I have something to eat!"
Saying that, she sits near the corpse of your hind and... plunging her hand inside the body, she rips out a fragment of some organ and eats it raw.
'What the hell is this girl doing...'
/It doesn't matter what she's doing. It's a youkai. A monster. And it's stealing your food./
/Will you let it do as it pleases?/
Of course not.
/We're a spider webbing in the darkness./
We are. Let us kill her then. Kill her and feast on her flesh.
Crawling on four limbs, you sneak behind the girl.
Perfect, she didn't even notice you.
Just one step more... And her neck will be yours.
Swinging your arm, you grab her head.
And swing your knife down.
Only to hit empty air.
You try to look around, but there's nothing. Nothing else. Just plain blackness.
"Aha! I knew there was someone here!"
That girl... What did she do to you?
You can still feel the same ground under your feet... But why can't you see anything else?
"It looks like I'll be dining on human meat after all!"
Your senses scream.
/To the left. Jump./
You can feel something flying through the air where you've been a second ago.
"Oh ho? Can you see in this darkness after all?"
"Hahahaha! You're fun! You don't want to genuflect and beg for your life?"
It will be you...
Who's going to be...
Begging for your life in the end!
It comes again, but this time, you're not going to dodge.
You can't see. Can't see. Can't see with your eyes.
But yours other senses. They're all screaming, giving you even more information than your eyes.
Why haven't you noticed this before?
/This doesn't matter./
It truly doesn't matter now.
The next instant that girl attacks, she's going to die.
Returning yet again with the same attack, she charges at your with her claws in front of her, like she was carrying a spear.
/She's basically using her body as the spear's shaft.../
And her claws as the head...
/Well then, it is clear what has to be done./
It is clear.
Feigning a dodge stance, you thrust your knife forward, towards her outstretched claws.
There is a sound of metal hitting something hard.
The instant your knife connects with her claws, you are already above her.
"Seven Nights of Suffering!"
Her arms fall off.
So do her legs.
Half of her head is gone.
The other half is gone.
Her torso is cut in half.
Blackness disappears. Eight pieces of meat fall to the ground. Splashing blood around, those eight pieces of meat that used to be a girl paint the surroundings in beautiful vermillion.
You've done it again.
Killed someone again.
Yet, it feels so good.
Why does it feel so good?
/You know why./
Why is it?
/Because you're a killing machine, and this forest is your killing chamber./
For many more years, people were afraid to enter the Forest Of Spider. Rumour has it, that a young outsider entered that forest long ago and became possessed by some evil power that made him kill everyone who dared to disturb his peace. After some years though, he died, killed by his own old age.
Reimu Hakurei couldn't get over losing her bodyguard for a long time. With the help of her friend, Rinnosuke Morichika, she finally recovered and decided to mary him. Then they had children. One of them, the boy, they named after the long-lost bodyguard. Reimu died at old age, after living a happy life.
Suika Ibuki, resident oni of Hakurei Shrine, after the disappearance of Reimu's bodyguard, fell in serious alcohol addiction. Not doing anything other than drinking all day, she soon became a shut-in, easily angered person. To this day, she still lives at the shrine, scaring off Reimu's childrens' guests.
Mima, deity of Hakurei Shrine, decided not to let any men get too close to Reimu's children, fearing that if she let them fall in love, the story would repeat itself.
Hieda no Akyu, writer from the human village, lived a happy, but lonely life and died of old age.
Wriggle Nightbug, a youkai said to be first one the lost bodyguard ever killed, soon forgot about that incident. Having developed feelings for her killer made it a little difficult for her friends, but she got over it pretty quickly.
Rumia, a youkai, after recovering from being killed by the bodyguard, quickly fled the forest of spider and never returned there, fearing for her life.
And that concludes a story of a psychopatic outsider whose adventures gave Gensokyo a whole new story for parents to tell their children.
