Chihiro sat at small, cluttered desk in her one room apartment in downtown Tokyo. One hand braced her chin as she looked out of the window at the only view she had - a red brick wall across the alley. Her other hand held a wide, felt tipped pen, hovered over a sketch pad but never touched the paper. She'd been working on an illustration when her mind had drifted back to the subject of her art - the Spirit Realm and her time spent there. Kamaji was her current object of fascination. A roughly sketched portrait of him at the bellows marked the page in front of her.
What were her ethereal friends doing now? Was Lin still working at the bath house? She'd wanted so badly to leave and see the rest of the world. Had Bo grown up? He was such a large baby...he might have been meant to stay that way. Was No Face still with Granny? She certainly hoped so. He'd been so sweet and she knew no one at the bathhouse would allow him in. What about Kohaku? Surely Yubaba hadn't harmed h

The station wagon turned into a curving gravel drive that led to a narrow, two story, brick house and then looped back around and out so that her father wouldn't have to back out of the driveway in the mornings. This was a good idea on the designer's part, Chihiro decided, as her father's driving skills were lacking in some areas. In the arc of the loop was a small flower garden filled with colorful flowering plants, complete with a decorative Buddha statue among the foliage. The gapping smile of the happily obese deity elicited a short giggle from the girl.
"Look, honey, we didn't miss the movers after all," her mother's voice broke into her thoughts and she raised her gaze to the end of the driveway where a large yellow and white van was starting to turn in. "Now, you'll have to move the car into the garage so they can pull all the way up to the door. I don't want them scratching my wood furniture. Chihiro, you're going to have to get out of the way.

"is howl home yet?" markl asked the small fire.
"i haven't seen him since yesterday afternoon" the fire demon answered through a mouth full of wood.
and as if on cue, markl heard the door portal give a little *clink* like it always did to signal that the door was being opened by an outside force getting into the magical castle.
markl watched as the black portal door opened and in walked his master. his blond hair was going in all different directions and his bangs fell over his face. his shoulders were slumped and he looked exhausted.

Spirited Away II Chapter Six The sun rose over the Aburaya, making the top of the building gleam with beauty and a majestic glow. Yubaba was preparing to leave the bath house, leaving everything the Kashira until either she or Haku returned. The Yu-Bird, who had returned to its normal state after Chihiro left, waited patiently for Yubaba to transform and take off with it. Wrapping herself in a black cloak, Yubaba walked over to the railing, hopped on it, and transformed into a giant bird-like creature. As she flew off with Yu-Bird, Yubaba wondered what happened to make Haku disappear so suddenly the previous night.Spirited Away II Chapter Six4 years ago in Romance More Like This
"It's as if he felt a familiar presence at the bath house." she thought to herself, "I wonder did that brat Chihiro return? If she did, she's going to be in very deep trouble."

"Where is that boy?" the woman in red asked. She was standing at the beginning of the bridge to the bath house, worried and a little antsy for her friend whom she considered a little brother. Just as she was about to turn around and re-enter the bath house, a voice called out to her.
Kasei turned around and smiled as she saw Haku running up towards the bridge. She met him at the start and embraced him, which he returned.
"I was getting worried." she admitted, putting a hand on his shoulder, "How did everything go with Chihiro?"

Her eyes ventured back...but she didn't. She couldn't look back. Not yet.
But-- She would miss him.
As she got into the blue car it was filled with dust, leaves, and undergrowth. Her parents did not understand. It had been such a long period of time since they had been in their car. "Yes, must be. But what a heartless joke," her mother said. But Chihiro just took a deep breath through her nostrils, sighing. "What's wrong, Chihiro?" her father asked in his gruff voice. "Nothing," she replied. "You still can't get over moving?" asked her mother sweetly. "Of course not," she replied, still a bit dazed by the happenings. She gingerly touched the hair-band made by her friends. Granny, No-face....all of them. But especially Haku. "Haku..." she whispered, not audible for one of her parents to hear.
The car came to a halt in front of a blue house with nice white trim. "Isn't it lovely?" asked Chihiro's mother, Yuuko. "It's a fine home," said the father. "What do you th

Her feet, like Haku's, were just barely touching the surface of the water. Chihiro looked down and saw the crystal-like state of the water below her, nothing disturbing the surface. Haku brought her face up to his level to look into her eyes.

"And a big heart." Akane added, her sister and friend agreeing, "Come on! School's out so let's go meet her at her house!"
With that, the three quickly ran out of the room and to the shoe lockers at the school's entrance, putting on their normal shoes and dashing towards the Ogino residence to see their friend.
Back at the Aburaya, everyone had already come out and congratulated the two on passing the difficult test. Haku's parents were embracing him, which he returned

"Absolutely not. You are not going into that forest all on your own. It's too dangerous."

"Since she's come back less than a day after she left, I'm assuming that she must have figured out her feelings for you, Haku. I, too, would advise you go and meet her. If you're still unsure, spend some time with her and have her help you understand your own heart."

"No. I'm not going to die. I'm going to see my friends again! I have to!"
Chihiro dashed through the field as water began to fill it up quickly. Not wanting to delay any more, she began to swim through the water with precaution, watching for the stairs that will lead up to the Aburaya.

Today was no different.
The morning was cool; the tiniest of raindrops filled the sky and landed with not a sound on the wet pavement and on the sidewalk where Haru placed her determined steps. Normally on a day like today she would have slept in even later that usual, but Hiromi, Harus best friend, had taken it upon herself to personally make a wake up call.
Hiromi had gone on ahead with the assurance that Haru had still enough time to eat before leaving for once, so now Haru walked the sidewalk alone again, passing briefly underneath the crossing bridge to avoid the pitter patter of rain on her light-blue umbrella.

Hours had passed. The scenery had changed around the Baron as quickly as though he had come through a luscious mountain valley into a scorching desert. The lush grass and the soft breeze vanished as they crossed out of the border of the Cat Kingdom, replaced with the brown reeds of once healthy greenery and the dark twigs of dead shrubs. He didnt dwell on the scenery as much though when he saw in the distance the towers of what must surely be his destination.
Baron, what happened here? asked Muta, his worried voice betraying his otherwise nonchalant face.
I dont know Muta. I can only imagine that the power of the Cat Kingdom ends back at the border and that the power over this place is far more malicious.
Somehow malicious didnt quite cover it, thought Muta, watching the skeleton of a shrub disintegrate as they passed by.

It had been six years since Chihiro had crossed over to the Spirit World. Six years since she had met Haku, her first love. Six years since she saved the Spirit World. Six long years had passed since she let go of Haku's soft hand and walked back into the human world.
She didn't realize it until she crossed into the human world and couldn't look back; she loved Haku. She loved a Spirit. Even though she was young, her feelings for Haku were there. She didn't know why or how it happened, but it did. She loved the impossible.
She hadn't told anyone about the Spirit World, her friends, or even Haku.
