And here I return… Well, to tell you guys that this story is going on hiatus for awhile. I'm SORRY! ((ducks the barrage of rotten tomatoes, fruits, other foods… and a shoe))

I really have no other excuse for myself other than I am a slacker and have been extremely busy since my last update back in 2003… ((stares at the year and smacks herself))

I started this story my freshman year of high school after Spirited Away came out because I was so enraptured by it. Don't get me wrong. I still love the movie to death. However, that was before my schedule picked up. Right now, I'm a high school junior balancing 5 AP classes and 2 honors classes all in the same day. So please forgive me if I haven't been able to do much with this.

When I will continue is pretty indefinite… I would like to say that I would like to do a lot this summer, but I can't promise it. I have to do college applications, essays, summer school to get rid of that lone PE credit that I don't think anyone really needs… My sincerest apologies to everyone who's been waiting for the next part.

I thank you all so much for still giving me reviews despite the fact that this story is as old as dirt. The lone review that trickles into my inbox everyday always works to renew my motivation to try to write, but somehow, I haven't been able to. And for that, I am truly so sorry about it because they are the ones that make me want to write, if not for my sake, than for your enjoyment.

Some changes will be made once I start up again, though. First off, this will be made PG-13. I can't do the lemon. I can't find a place where it would fit. And for some reason, I really can't put the innocence of the child-like characters of Chihiro and Haku into such a situation. Granted, they are aged in my story, but the image doesn't fit.

And my biggest ambition after my next installment will be to rewrite everything. What I wrote then embarrasses the crap out of me. It reads so cornily to me now. Yes, I know 'cornily' is not a word, but that's the only way I can find to describe it. And plus, I'm taking a college English class now, so I can find some way to make it sound better, I hope.

I thank you all so much for, well, being somewhat patient with me throughout these 2 years of me disappearing off the face of the cybernetic world. I hope to return as soon as possible to finish this story. Don't worry, though. I still haven't forgotten where I wanted to take this story.

With all of my creative love,
