Daki x fem!so
I actually got hit by a car earlier today and I finished this in the hospital, no fractures and injuries found but I had a concussion last saturday so it took a toll on me. I'm all good as long as I get to post this before midnight. Art by Harunobu Suzuki.

You hurriedly finished your mission to visit your sweet girlfriend, who was an Oiran in Hanamachi Entertainment District, Warabihime.
You haven't met her ever since your past mission in Osaka, which was 2 years ago when you were still a rank mizunoe demon slayer, you are now a rank hinoe. Despite not seeing eachother, you've been communicating each other by letters, your kasugai crow hadn't came back ever since you have delivered your first letter to your lover.
A year ago, you were worried because you haven't heard anything from Warabihime, but then, you received a letter in the butterfly estate where you were resting from your last mission, stating it was from your lover, Warabihime, apologizing for not replying back for your crow has been "shot" by a huntsman, it was suspicious for a skilled crow to be easily shot, but you didn't thought of it more.
Yes it did hurt, it pains you having to hear your crow, who has been with you ever since you entered demon slaying, nevertheless, worrying about it more would just distract you and just simply just request a new crow. You gave yourself a mental note to deliver your letter by a mailman rather by a crow, you don't want something similar to happen again.
Now that you're a rank hinoe, you decided to visit your lover and surprise her a celebration for the both of you for improving and rising your ranks together.
The husband of okami of the house where Warabihime was staying was confused why a demon slayer, specially a woman, doing in a place like this?
"Good evening, old master! I am here to visit my lover, which is your Oiran. Is she available? Don't tell her that I'm here, I want to surprise her." You giggled, whispering the last part cause you don't want anyone to eavesdrop.
The old man was speechless when he found out that their beloved Oiran has a girlfriend! He then told you where her room was since you are her lover and there's nothing wrong with it right? She has no customers at the moment so it'll be fine right?
What was that?
Did something fell from the sky?
Everyone rushed to where that loud thud came from shoked that okami fell to a horrible death.
While they were busy dealing with the okami's death, you hurriedly went to Warabihime's room to check on her whether she's alright but, you stopped... you're close to her room, what's stopping you? Was it instinct? You can sense a demon.. no, two demons in your lover's room..
Did...did they.. is Warabihime ok?
D-did.. did she.. no.
Why don't you check it out? You're a demon slayer, it's your job to slay them, so why can't you move?
W-what's a demon doing... in such place as this?..
They haven't eaten... hime have they?..
Impossible haha! That old guy said she doesn't have customers.. no way she's dead.
You tried to fix your composure. Why can't you go in? It's just a few walks away, why don't you check for yourself? We'll never know if she died or not~
“ From now on, you will be even stronger and crueler. You are a special demon. ”
It's a voice of a man.. but she has no customers for this night...?
No way my lover's a demon, ha! Definitely, no way...
No... Of course no, she's not a demon, she's the prettiest, most dashing, charismatic, ethereal, whose beauty is out of this world! No way she's a demon.. demon are the ugliest creature seize to exist. Perhaps, you should come by some other day, yeah? You want to rest.. need to rest, you haven't eaten anything since you came back from your mission, so resting for now would be the best.. right?..
You decided to check in a hotel ear the red light district to rest and to monitor the town. You sensed two demons so, it's improper for a demon slayer to leave without slaying them, it'll bring disgrace to your title. You roamed around the city, dressed up looking like an okami during the so people won't mess with you and wearing your demon slayer uniform during the night.
Nothing suspicious happened after the fall of Kyogoku House’s Okami, you monitored every corner of the town. It was bustling after sun down as usual, drunk men on the streets, young girls being sold off,
“A demon slayer?” someone called out, You turned around to see your senior, a hashira, the sound hashira, Uzui Tengen and with… three.. ugly men.. you can already tell that they’re no ordinary girls… they’re not even girls to begin with..
They have so many masculine features, scars that can be seen, uneven blending of foundation, super red cheeks that doesn’t compliment their features, too much eyeliner, the way the hair was tied, and their smudged lipstick… everything was out of line, the make-up doesn’t suit them at all! If there is a word to describe something far more ugly, you could’ve used it. You showed your disgust through your expression, not knowing what to say to the sound pillar.
“Good evening, Uzui-san. I am L/N Y/N, a hinoe-rank demon slayer patrolling this district. May I ask, what are you doing here with such .... ugly.. creatures..” you bowed to him to show respect
“Ugly har?! I'm the one who did their make-up and you have the audacity to call it ugly?! Their the ones who's ugly! Leave my art work out of this. Oh by the way, what are you doing here?”
“Oh, I was supposed to visit my girlfriend in the Kyogoku House but, I sensed about.. two or three demons..? I don't remember but it's about 2-3 demons and I decided to patrol around this area.”
“Was the demons inside the house or near the house?”
“It was inside the house, in my girlfriend's room. I sensed about 2 in there but these past few days, one of their aura changed so I'm guessing there's 3 demons?”
“Your girlfriend works here?”
“Yup! She's an Oiran in Kyogoku House, I wanted to surprise her that night to congratulate her but... I couldn't move when I was near her room, it's like there's a force field stop me.”
“Hmm..” The sound hashira thinking if what to do.
‘This hinoe-rank slayer really holds valuable information, perhaps she knows where my wives are? Know that we have an idea that there would be 2-3 demons... I'm guessing they're upper moons by just the way she talks.’ Uzui though to himself
He held his hand to his chin as he continued to think of a new plan involving a new girl, obviously, there's no time to dress you up and be sold so, he thought of you coming with him instead! What a lucky night, am I right? As long as he doesn't dress you up, you're good with it.
The sound pillar explained the situation to you afterwards and you came along with him to sell off the 3 slayers, even if you wanted to decline to come along with them, you know he'll just force you over and over, plus he's a hashira and you definitely need his help.
After giving the 3 slayers away, you talked to zenitsu for the last time before he departs off,
“ Zenitsu-san, please check if my girlfriend’s alright, ok? She works here as an oiran and I haven’t seen her for years but I couldn’t bring to talk to her myself so, say hi to her for me, yeah? ”
“ Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-YOU HAVE A GIRLFRIEND???????? KYA- ”
You hit him on his head with your fist to stop him from causing a ruckus,
“ Yes, I do, now keep quiet! Just do what I requested you to do, check up on her and that’s it. ”
“ ok.. ”
You told to Uzui that you have a weak stomach and can’t handle the smell at night, he let you do the patrol at day and he takes over at night. You always check up on the houses to see if the trios are doing fine. You still couldn’t bring yourself to face your girlfriend, why is that?
Is she perhaps cheating on you? But she’s an oiran! She’s just doing her job, that’s all.. it’s part of life to risk your body, I mean, look at you now! Risking your life on the line.. so obviously, she’s gonna do the same too. Why are you doubting her love for you? Hmm? Do you not trust her?
You were so busy thinking to yourself when you realized, Zenitsu wasn’t in his room according to plan,
Did something happen?
You checked around his room in hopes of finding an unsent letter or something that can hint where he is, you decided to wait in his room because he’s probably just dealing with other people. It’s been 1 and a half hour, still no sign of him, you decided to report it to the pillar and the others.
“ Uzui-sa-, he’s not here? ” you asked the 2 boys who was also waiting for the man’s arrival, they both shook their head and asked you whether you know where he is.
The boys suspected that the sound pillar was with you but after seeing you alone, they began to panicked thinking he was caught by a demon but, he’s a hashira right? It would be impossible for him to be caught that easily.
“ Zenitsu isn’t coming ” the three of you suddenly heard a familiar voice
“ I think I’ve put you guys in real danger. I wanted to help my wives, but that let me to make some bad choices. Now, Zenitsu is missing… I haven’t heard from him since last night. You three, leave the Hanamachi. You’re not up to this. If there’s an upper-rank demon here, you can’t handle it. When someone disappears, we must count them as dead. ”
“ But Uzui-sa- ”
“ From now on, I’ll operate alone. ”
“No, Uzui-san! We-! ” the boy with burgundy colored-hair was also cut off by Uzui
“ There’s no shame in this. To survive means victory. Don’t squa- ”
“ Are you telling us to run away? ” you cut him off this time
“ We are also demon slayers, we’ve already put our life on the line since the very beginning. Telling us to run away isn’t gonna change anything. It’s like running away from our duties. ”
“ I’m telling you right now to leave this place, I won’t allow you to die under my selfishness, it’s my fault that you got into this mess in the first place. ”
“ Wait! ” Kamado shouted before the sound pillar left in a blink of an eye,
“ Maybe he doesn’t trust because we’re the lowest rank? ”
You were too distracted to listen at the conversation of the two,
Zenitsu was infiltrated in the Kyogoku house right? I also haven’t heard anything from Warabihime.. I can’t leave without meeting her for the last time, why did I even came here in the first place? What kind of lover does that make me? Is Warabihime alright?
You were too busy thinking to yourself, you didn’t realize that the two was causing trouble
“ HEY STOP IT YOU TWO! ”
“ Ouch… hey.. STOP HITTING ME! THERE MUST BE A SECRET PASSAGE INSIDE THE BUILDING! ”
“ Passage? ” both you and Inosuke looked at the beaten boy who was hinting something,
“ The demons isn’t coming and going… so it might be someone working there. If the demon is working at the house… it must be good at pretending to be a human and must be careful to kill people so that no one notices. ”
“ Oh yeah… bloodstains don’t come out easily. Hiding murder is hard work. ”
“ This is a night town that’s very convenient for demons, but there are still many inconvenient things. If you try to get things done during the day, people get suspicious. I think that Zenitsu and Uzui’s wives are all still alive and I’m acting on that belief. I want to rescue them. I want the two of you to do the same and I definitely don’t want the both of you to die! ”
After all of you agreed in all terms, Tanjiro decided to ask you something,
“ L/N-san, you have a lover who’s an Oiran right? ” you nodded your head as a response,
“ Can I know which house she’s working in ”
“ She’s known as Warabihime Oiran, she’s under House Kyogoku, that was the house where zenitsu was staying in ”
“ I see… do you think you can talk to her about Zenitsu’s whereabouts? ”
“ That… I cannot do, we’re both in a… complicated situation right now and haven’t contacted her for days so.. ” you explained to him. It has indeed been months since you last contacted each other and years since the last time you both met
“ No no, don’t worry, I understand ” and then he smiled, that. That smile. His smile.. was different, as if all the burdens was lifted off your shoulder, you feel light as a feather, comfort like you were being babied, he was sincere as if the heavens was calling you.
“ Well then, I have something to do first so I better get going, see you around, L/N-san! ” you snapped out of your thoughts and just like that, he waved off to the distance.
Everyone is doing their best and me..? ha I’m better off as bait, I’ve been here for a week and still haven’t gotten any intellect and can’t even bring myself to meet my girlfriend... pathetic aren’t I? Still wondering why she even fell in love with me...
You snapped back to reality
What was that sound? A demon? SHIT I FORGOT ABOUT THEM
You hurriedly ran to where the sound came from, then you saw a running figure on the roofs of the house, trying to see it clearly, you noticed Uzui’s flashy headband,
“ UZUI-SAN! ” you waved you arm around to make him look at you
“ Huh? OH! Y/N-SAN! ESCORT THE CIVILIANS OUT OF THE TOWN! ” his voice fades away as he gets further and further from where you are, you didn’t had the time to reply back to him but that doesn’t matter anymore, all it matters is that you get everyone out to avoid deaths among innocent people.
You jumped from house to house carrying the injured and guiding the frightened, ensuring them that they’ll be brought to a safer place once they get out of that town. That is your specialty, calm and comfort, easing people frustration and fear, ensuring them with your words. You are always the one who calms everyone at a situation like this, but who’s there to calm you? To comfort you? To wrap their arms around you and whisper such kind and soft words? Only one person can come to your mind and that’s your lover, the one who understood you the most, you can see a vivid image of her waiting for you, arms wide open ready to wrap you around it.
There’s no time reminiscing memories! I have people to protect. Focus, focus!
You suddenly heard a crashing sound coming from one of the houses. You decided to turn around and check what was happening,
Huh?! What are those things? Boomerang? No, no...sickles? I have to hurry up and help the other.
You quickened your phase and immediately ran as fast as you can to the where the others are, it was quite far since the exit was far from where the other are.
You can see something on one of the roof of the houses near you so, you ran as fast as you can before one of your comrades gets hurt, you were still a few blocks away and the road was covered with the demolished buildings that was caused from the fight.
You caught a glimpse of the yellow haired boy, you were relief for a second that Zenitsu was safe, but seem to be unconscious?
“ INOSUKE! ” you shouted as the demon with the sickles stabbed him. You saw Uzui lying on the ground unconscious and loosing a lot of blood, same goes for Inosuke. A large strike suddenly hit the roof that caused it to fall, leaving everyone unconscious, you decided to hide for the mean time, you can’t swoop them all up in one go, you’re too weak for that.
“ GYUTARO! ”
That voice... wara...bi.. hime? You’re alive? She’s alive.
“ WAIT! NO WAY! I CAN’T LET THAT KID CUT OFF YOUR HEAD! ”
“ Wara..bihime?.. ” You walked out of the corner where you were hiding,
“ What’s all this, love? ”
Did love even existed in the first place?
Was it all one-sided? You felt betrayed, loving a demon? You hated yourself for that. You’re a slayer, you knew that there was no room for love at the very start, why even hope for one? Your crow.. she was the one who killed your only friend and you let it slip from your shoulder. You knew she was a demon, why didn’t you killed her? It’s because you denied to face the truth. Truth always hurts, where’s the comfort? where’s the sweet and kind words? You didn’t wanted to destroy the relationship the both of you have now so kept your mouth shut and waited for that very moment to come.. you didn’t expected it to be now.
Tell me, did you felt the butterflies when you were with me the same as when i was with you? I knew it was fake, but I was happy for a while.
“ Y/N.. I can explain.. ” everyone fell silent, even her brother, in fact, everyone was caught off guard, no one expected this outcome, no one expected you.
All the efforts, care, love, sweat, blood, and tears you gave out just to receive nothing in return, what does it feel? How does it feel? Stop expecting so high in life, no one is ever gonna return those favors for you. In the end, you’re the one who suffers.
“ You did love me..right, warabhime?”
She looked at her brother asking him for solutions to this mess, the man just looked away kneeling over tanjiro,
“ Ngghh.. WILL YOU STOP CALLING ME THAT? I SWEAR TO GOD YOUR VOICE ANNOYS THE SHIT OUT OF ME UGH ”
Tears forming in your eyes, trying not to fall after hearing those words from her mouth. They were just words yes, but it stung where it hurts, You’re not injured nor are you internally bleeding, but everything hurts. Just from the moment you saw your lover's true form, you were in awe for her beauty, she’s still dashing even when she showed her true self. If you were Muzan, you would’ve made her your queen, all of those doesn’t matter now. You can’t kill 2 demons at the same time and it’ll take a while for the others to wake up, you have no choice left but to hold them off,
“ Remember when I asked you something, 3 years ago? ”
“ SHUT UP AND JUST GO TO HELL, YOU DIPSHIT ”
As she was about to attack, you shouted
“ And if we don’t last for forever, will you forget the things I’ll remember? ” tears streaming down your cheeks, glimmering like the stars that showed up on the night sky, opening your arms wide, welcoming her into your embrace, her brother, who was ready to attack you, was hold off by Tanjiro and Zenitsu.
“ WHO CARES ABOUT THOSE THINGS?! ONLY THE WEAK WILL REMEMBER SUCH MEMORIES. You see, we demons don’t feel anything at all, my love for you? It was all fake of course, haha! ” she says in amusement
“ If you would’ve just left this place when you had the chance, then maybe we wouldn’t be like this and still be in a relationship together! ” she continued on chatting all her thoughts away, you noticed the other gaining consciousness again, close with cutting the other demon’s head off. You thought of other ways to stall time
“ What’s your name? ” you asked her
“ HUH?? YOU’RE ASKING MY NAME? THAT’S JUST ABSURD! ”
“ I’m L/N Y/N, how about you? ” you asked her again, voice so sweet and innocent as if no one is covered in blood.
“ Upper moon 6, Daki ” grinning to herself, perhps this will leave her a reminder that it was her, Daki who killed you.
“ Can I tie the knot of your obi? ”
“ You’re going to die RIGHT HERE AND NOW! ”
“ I’m glad that you still chose to do it with me ‘til the very end, Daki ”
I was happy for you
All the efforts, care, love, blood, sweat, and tears
You're the one
Tie the knot
With me ”
I really appreciate whenever you guys interact with my posts, it gives me serotonin lol and this is my first and longest oneshot that I made. I was inspired by the song 'Michelle' by sir chloe. I’m also sorry if it was kinda bad, I rushed it half way so yeah it's kinda cheesy and cringey since it's my first one shot
The phrase "tie the knot" is another way of saying "get married" so basically, you were proposing and saying your vow to daki at the very end *wink wink*
Also I got some of the phrases are from TikTok, you can check out their account @/hydwrites
