Feeling a demonic presence nearby, Miyu woke up from her bed and quickly transformed, her white kimono covering her slim, sexy body a purple belt wrapping around her waist, and forming a bow on her back while red ribbon wrapped itself around her left ankle. She walked carefully outside, ready to fight.
Cold wind shivered in the trees. Autumn was chilly this year. Miyu looked around, wondering where her enemy was hiding. She couldn’t see anyone, but there was something in the air telling her that some kind of demon must be around. She made two more steps down the stairs, he bare feet touching the ground. There was no sign of anything strange. Was she mistaken?
Miyu was just about to withdraw to the temple, when suddenly she felt something odd. She couldn’t move. Her legs weren’t able to make a single step. Surprised, she looked down to see that the perfect skin of her delicate feet was turning grey. There was no doubt, her feet were changing into stone! She tried to make one more step, but she failed. A grey wave was slowly moving up her body, covering her ankles and irresistibly reaching her knees. She couldn’t feel her feet anymore.
"Stop it! Please!“, Miyu cried as panic shone in her golden eyes. There was a shivering in the wind again and she could feel some strange voice whispering to her ears.
"Shhh... shhh... kinda helpless we are, aren’t we? He he he... Look what we got here, invincible demon hunter…“ Invisible hands were slowly caressing her body, causing her to moan softly. "You destroyed dozens of demons, Miyu. You became legend among them. So, how it feels to be so powerless, just like your victims?“
Her knees were already grey, just like her legs. Her hips were changing now, turning into grey, hard stone. She couldn’t feel anything below her waist.
"No more... please, turn it back...“, there was no anger or hate in her voice, just a pure desperation.
"Legendary demon hunter... sshhhh... Merciless demon slayer... he he he... now, feel the mercy of demons!“
Transformation reached her breasts, turning two mounds of flesh into perfectly shaped stony mounds. Her hands were already immobilized. Grey palms were crossed behind her back. Her white kimono waved on the stony body, making great contast with grey stone.
"Mercy...“, her red lips whispered this one last word before turning into stone as well. Moments later her beautiful, golden eyes became grey and empty.
:How many of those demons asked you for mercy, Miyu? Shhhh.... Did you ever show it to them?“, the voice asked as invisible hands caressed her brown hair. "No, never. Time for you to became a symbol of what awaits those who are fighting with our kind“
Miyu stood there, completely turned into stone statue. Her clothes remained unchanged, just like her belt and red ribbons in her hair and around her ankle. While cold wind shivered, it made her kimono moving slowly. The invisible demon admired his work, moving his palms all over the statue which was once a fearless demons hunter.
"Very pretty... very pretty... Shhh... Stay there for eternity... I’m sure your friends will come here sooner or later... shhh... and I’ll waiting here for them... he he he…“. His laughter disappreaed in the wind, while the blank, wide open eyes of Miyu looked blindly into night like a torpid witnesses of upcoming horrors.
