Wind whipped his hair back. He reached his fingers out, his breath caught; it felt like his stomach just flew into his throat. "Chihiro!" He shouted. His eyes closed as he put his arms at his sides, less friction, the faster he would fall.
She screamed out trying to look at him. "Haku, Haku!" She could see the lake ground drawing closer, and closer, would he make it to her, even if he did, they'd die…at least they'd be together.
"Fly, fly, fly…" He chanted over and over closing his eyes, of all the powers he had, he needed this one more than anything. He drew closer; his fingers were mere inches away from her foot. "Chihiro," he uttered his head flew back as his fingers made contact with her body. "I love you." He whispered.
Chihiro's eyes grew in size as a white light engulfed the both of them. The whipping winds seemed to die down. He drew her closer and pulled her upright his arms locked around her waist and he buried his face in the crook of her neck. "Haku, you can still fly." She smiled her cheeks flushed as his lips touched her neck. She looked down as they drew closer to the surface of the lake water. "…well, you can float at least." She smiled. He pulled away and cocked his head to one side and peered down. It was true, he wasn't flying. Chihiro just laughed and pressed her lips to his in a tender kiss. "You saved me." She sighed. Her hand ran her good hand down his chest on impulse.
Haku's face turned beat red and he lost control of the power. Chihiro screamed out as they plunged into the frigid waters. Haku laughed and grabbed her good arm as they started to swim to the edge. It was large, but they hadn't fallen that far from one of the banks. He coughed as he swallowed a bit of the water and peered up. Aya and Taro were not in sight. "Chihiro, we have to get help, we can't kill them by ourselves."
She nodded bowing her head and nodded spitting out the bit of water that flowed into her mouth. Their feet touched ground and they scrambled to their feet and started in a dead run up the mountain road.
"She's not down the street either!" Akio stormed into the house his fists tightly clamped, held down at his side.
Yuko wrinkled her nose together as she sat down at her desk. "Let her be, I'm sure they just went for a walk."
"Walk my ass." Akio growled hitting his fist into a wall.
Yuko's eyes narrowed. She looked up at Akio and sighed. "I'll go look for her, you go finish cleaning up, okay?" Akio nodded, bowing his head down he trudged on.
"If he so much as touches her…" He grumbled under his breath and kicked his newspaper towards his chair, before going into the kitchen. Bowing his head he walked back into Yuko's office. "I'm going to go look for her some more, okay?"
Yuko turned and nodded. "Sure, all come along too." She needed a break from work anyway.
"They're still alive Taro." Aya gritted her teeth as they rushed past the bushes, and leaped over the fallen trees and branches.
"We'll get them; we can catch up with them at the half way point, headed towards the tunnel…" Taro was talking about the train station tunnel, the one that Chihiro had gone in, the day she had first met Haku. "We get him back into Spirit world, and he won't be coming back!" They both laughed, running even faster.
"Haku, slow down, my arm hurts…" Chihiro whined as they ran down the dirt road.
"We can't, just don't think about it!" He gripped even tighter on her free hand and pulled her along.
"We can't fly?" She frowned. He glanced back.
"I don't think so, it was a one time thing, like when I knew we were going to die, that light thing happened, an then I flew up into the air. Besides, it wasn't flying, it was more like gliding…" He bowed his head for a moment heaving for breath as they slowed down. He clutched his chest and fell to his knees.
"Haku, are you alright?" She leaned forward.
Haku screamed out fall onto his side he dug his fingers into the ground pulling at the grass and dirt. "It hurts!" He gritted his teeth his eyes grew wide. Chihiro didn't know what to do, she looked around in a panic… That's when her eyes fell onto the tunnel.
"Haku, we're right by the tunnel." She pointed in to the right of them. Haku managed to move his head and he struggled to catch his breath.
His eyes grew wide and he rolled onto his back arching it as he clutched his throat with one hand and his chest with the other.
"Does it hurt, Haku?" Aya walked down the path waving her gun in the air. "By the looks of you, it does…" She smiled. "If you want it to stop, just go into the tunnel."
"You and I both—" He shouted out again as Aya clenched her fist.
"What is that Haku, I can't hear you right." She laughed as Taro joined her. "Chihiro, carry him into the tunnel, and the pain will stop, if not, I'll make sure he dies and slow, painful death…" She snickered, throwing her head back she let out an echoing laugh.
Chihiro gripped her fists and clenched her teeth. Her eyes narrowed and she walked closer towards Aya. "Stop it, now." She whispered. Her whole body shook.
"Give me one good reason, why I should." She shook her head and shrugged her shoulders.
Chihiro screamed out and rammed her head into Aya's stomach. Aya screamed out and tumbled to the ground dropping the round orb that was causing Haku such pain. "Chihiro!" He screamed out. Aya's gun fired grazing a tree. He looked over at Taro who held his gun towards Haku.
"Don't even think about it pretty boy." Taro sighed in content.
Haku sat up as Aya slapped Chihiro across the face and put the gun to her head. Aya laughed peering down at Chihiro's frightened face. "We're going to take your boyfriend back home; he won't be coming back, just so you know…"
"Haku, go or she's dead." Taro laughed firing his gun and hitting it into Haku's left leg. Haku's eyes widened and he fell to his side crying out. He couldn't help but let a few tears spill on that one. His body shook; he forced himself to stand, resting his entire wait on his right leg. "Go now, or I'll shoot the other one too."
Haku's eyes darkened and he looked over at Chihiro. This was all his fault, if he hadn't come after her, to her world, this never would have happened. "Forgive me Chihiro."
"No, Haku, don't!" She screamed. Aya pressed the gun closer to her head.
"Not very smart Chihiro," Aya gritted her teeth and pressed the gun against her face even more.
"I'm sorry." Haku whispered looking away. Tears were flowing down Chihiro's face, he couldn't bear to watch.
Haku looked past her and his eyes fell upon two figures in the distance looking over at him and Chihiro. His eyes widened and he looked down at his feet. "Akito, and Yuko." He smiled.
"Aren't they Haku's guardian's?" Yuko brought her hand to her face.
Akito's eyes narrowed. "Good thing I brought my gun with me…" He had brought it to scare Haku, just incase he had tried to do something to Chihiro; this however, was the last thing he expected. He snickered, and aimed for Taro.
"You get him dear." She smiled cheering him on. Haku's eyes grew wide, they were actually enjoying this? He shook his head, he would never understand human's fully. He watched at Akito fired. The bullet pierced into his chest.
"Aya…" Taro whispered falling back. He dropped his gun. Haku fell onto his right knee and picked up the gun aiming it at Aya.
"Let Chihiro go now!" He hissed. Akito ran up behind Aya as Yuko grabbed her gun.
"Taro!" She screamed, she ran over to him and placed his head in her lap. "Don't go…"
"The tunnel Aya, let's just go home, we can be together there." He looked over at Haku and then to Yuko, Akito, and Chihiro. "See you when you die kid." He gritted his teeth as Aya helped him stand.
"Just a second—"
"Dad," Chihiro stepped up in front of her father. "Let them go." She whispered.
"What, no way in hell am I going to—"
"They aren't human, just like I'm not." Haku coughed, sitting down on the ground. Chihiro's eyes grew wide and she shook her head.
"They're and you're what?" Akito's eyebrows arched upwards.
Haku bowed his head. "I met Chihiro for the first time when she was five years old. She fell into the river, when she tried to save her shoe. I saved her, back then I was still a river spirit. I was killed when they drained the river and filled it, making that big apartment complex back at your old home." Haku sighed, shaking his head. "Then, when you crossed the tunnel, I met your daughter again. You don't remember because…well, you were in a deep sleep after eating that food." He didn't dare tell them that they were pigs. "She left, and I promised her that I'd do everything in my power to find her again…I ended up killing Taro's sister. They used to be pixy's condemned to the spirit world for their wrong doings, I needed her life-vile to take me to this world."
Akito's left eye began to twitch in disbelief. "That' the biggest lie that I've ever heard; pixy's, what are you on drugs?" Akito grabbed Haku by the shoulders and looked him in the eyes shaking him.
"I'm not human, well, I wasn't at least, and I still have my powers to an extent." He pointed at a tree in front of them. "Fall." He whispered. There was a loud cracking noise and then the tree came tumbling to the ground.
"I still don't believe you." Akito growled.
Haku sighed. "Give me your gun." He grimaced. Akito tightened his grip on it.
"Like hell, I will." He snarled. Haku nodded and undid his shoe and placed it on the ground.
"Rise." He whispered. The shoe lifted, and moved towards Akito. "How about now?"
Akito stared in disbelief. He waved his hands over it in every direction, it really was floating. "You really aren't…" He paused. "...Normal."
"The life vile gives a spirit, a chance of living in the real world, in any form, or age that they desire. That's why I look older than what I was when Chihiro last saw me. I wanted to be around the same age as her…" He looked over at Chihiro who held back tears in her eyes. Haku smirked and bowed his head down. "I'm sorry for putting your daughter's life in danger, and for scarring you, please give me another chance?"
Yuko's eyes were wide in amazement. She nodded a wide smile forming on her lips. "Of course." She smiled.
Akito stared at his wife and let out a gasp of utter shock. "Yuko, what are you thinking?"
"I'm thinking about what our daughter wants, more than anything." She looked over at Chihiro. "We'll go get the car, and call the hospital, you two stay here, you hear?" Chihiro and Haku nodded and sat down staring towards the tunnel as Aya and Taro crept inside.
"Thank you." Haku smiled and bowed forward respectfully. They glanced away from Chihiro's parents, and away from Aya and Taro, and looked at each other.
"Haku, I can't believe you told them." She laughed.
"What was your dad talking about, drugs?" He shrugged his shoulders. Chihiro started to laugh.
"Don't worry about it; I'll explain it to you some other time." She relaxed her injured arm and leaned forward kissing him lightly on the lips. "I thought they were going to kill us."
Haku's eyes darkened. "They're gone now, no need to worry." He pulled her close to his chest and held her in a protective embrace.
She nodded and smirked. "Now all we need to worry about is getting you through high school math." He groaned in disgust and Chihiro started to laugh. He closed his eyes and smiled. He was happy to be with her, and he would continue to be with her forever.
"I love you." He whispered into her right ear. Chihiro blushed and nodded.
"I love you too." She shivered slightly, it was getting chilly out. They looked towards the tunnel again and then around the bend as they saw the flashing lights and the trail of dust coming from Akito's car. "…Even if my father doesn't approve of you just yet." They both started laughing.
