Ch.1 :Going back
Chihiro lay on her bed, and stared at the ceiling as she listened to the song that she had on repeat.
Everybody's got something
They had to leave behind
One regret from Yesterday
That seems to grow with time
Chihiro looked out the window at the full moon that shined into her dark room. "Haku, I miss you so much." She whispered as tears fell down her cheeks.
There's no use looking back
How it could have been now
Or might have been
All this I know, but still I can't find ways to let you go.
Chihiro was the only one up. Her parents went to sleep a while ago. She looked at the clock. "11:30" She told herself as she lay back on her bed, and stared at the ceiling.
I never had a dream come true.
Till the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that I've moved on,
You'll always be my baby
I never found the words to say
You're the one I think about each day
And I know no matter where life takes me to,
A part of me will always be with you.
Chihiro sighed as she turned off her CD player, and walked over to the window. She looked down at the path that led to Spirit world.
"I've waited eight years for you to come back to me, Haku. Tomorrow, I'm coming to see you." She said to herself as she got into bed, and fell into a dreamless sleep.

Yubaba had just finished the paperwork for that day. She stacked the papers for tomorrow on her desk, and got up. She walked over to the fireplace, and chanted a spell under her breath. As soon as she was done, the fireplace moved aside, and revealed a long staircase. She sighed as she walked down it, lighting the candles as she passed with her finger. After five minutes of walking, she finally reached the bottom. Before her was a hallway of prison cells. She walked down the hall, until she reached the one at the very end. Inside was a boy with sharp green eyes, leaning against the wall.
"Get up!!" She barked. The body didn't move. It only sent her threat glances through the shadows. Yubaba sighed, as she waved her finger. The body floated towards the front of the cell, but stopped because of the chains around the boy's hands and feet. "You know that this hurts me more then it hurts you, Haku." She sneered. "It's you're fault that you're down here." She said as she dropped him, making an echoing thud through the hallways. Haku slowly got up, and glared at her. Yubaba smiled. She waved her finger again. Suddenly Haku screamed as Yubaba cut him with each wave of her finger. After a while, she stopped, and waved her finger again. This time, a tray of mush appeared in the corner of the cell.
"Until tomorrow morning." Yubaba laughed as she walked up the long stairwell. Haku slowly got up, blood flowing freely from his new wounds. He took his previous position against the wall, as tears ran down his dirty cheeks.
'I'm so sorry, Chihiro. I tried to get to you. I tried to keep my promise.' He thought.
"Yubaba, I want to quit being your apprentice. " Haku said confidently. Yubaba looked at him. "But Haku, where would you go?" She asked in a hateful voice. Haku was silent.
"I'm sorry, Haku. I can't let you do that." She said going back to her writing.
"Ok then. I want to take two days off." He said looking at her.
"And why should I do that? You know that it gets busy around this time of year. I need all the help I can get. I know where you want to go, Haku, and I won't allow it. You are dismissed." Yubaba said waving her hand towards the door. Haku marched out the door. Haku went to go 'flying' as he usually did when he had to sort things out. He really didn't notice where he was going, but somehow he ended up in front of the tunnel that led to the human world. He looked around to make sure that no one was looking. He rushed towards the tunnel. Right when he was about to go through, he ran into a force field that shocked him. He blacked out upon impact. When he woke up, he found himself into a cell. Just then he saw Yubaba walk down from a stairwell.
"Oh good, you're finally awake." She hissed sarcastically. "I told you not to go there. But you went anyway. And for that you are going to be punished." She crackled as she left, and made her way back up to her office. -End of Flashback- The tears came down faster. "Chihiro, I'm so sorry." He said as he fell into a dreamless sleep.

Chihiro packed stuff into a small backpack. She looked out her window, down to the path that led to Spirit World. She looked at her clock on her dresser. It read 10:30. "Of all days to sleep in, why did I have to sleep in on this one?" She asked herself as she shoved her toothbrush into her backpack.
"Ok. I think I've got every thing." She said as she looked into the mirror. She hadn't changed much. She still had her same old straight brown hair pulled back into a ponytail with the rubber band that Zeniba and No-face made for her. All of the girls at school asked her where she had bought it, and she said that she had found it. She didn't like lying to them, but she could tell them where she had originally got it. Her hair went down to the middle of her back, if she had ever had it down. She had gotten taller, but she was still skinny. She took a deep breath as she picked up her backpack, and headed downstairs.
"I'm going for a walk ok? If it gets late, I'll go over to Kaiko's house ok, Mom?" She said as she headed out the door.
"Ok." She heard her mother respond to her. She ran down the hill behind her house, and down onto the path that her father had driven down eight years ago. Memories flooded her head as she ran towards the worn out building. Once she reached it, she didn't stop like all the other times that she'd come down and wait for Haku to come through it to meet her. She could feel the wind pushing her, as if encouraging her to move faster. Once she reached the meadow, she ran towards the bathhouse. When she reached the other side of the meadow, she stopped to catch her breath. She sat down on the steps and watched the wind move over the grass. After she caught her breath, she got up, and walked over to the bathhouse. She looked at it, before she walked up to the door that the servants use to enter. She walked all the way down to Kamaji's room, and opened the door. She walked in, and watched the little soot balls carry the coal that was twice their own weight and size. Once they saw her, they squeaked as they continued their work. Kamaji turned around to see what all of the commotion was about. When he saw who was kneeling there watching the tiny little workers, he jumped off of his table, and hugged her.
"Oh, Sen. It is so good to see you again." He said as he hugged her. She gladly returned the hug.
"It's good to be back." She said happily. Lin walked in to see what all the commotion was about. When she saw who it was, she ran up, and gave Chihiro a hug.
"Oh my god. I thought I'd never seen you again. How long has it been?" She asked. Chihiro blushed.
"It's been eight years, Lin. And I'm glad to see you. I've missed you both." She replied. Lin took her arm, and pulled over to the other side of the room, and sat her down.
"So tell me everything." Lin said happily. Kamaji and the little workers went back to work heating the baths. Chihiro laughed at her eagerness. Then a thought struck her. "Um Lin? Where is Haku? I haven't seen him." Chihiro asked. All of a sudden, the whole room became quiet, except for the roaring of the furnace. Chihiro's face quickly changed from happy to worry.
"Why is everyone so quiet? What happened?" she asked quickly. Lin wrapped her arm around Chihiro. "Come with me. I can tell you while I take you to Yubaba's office." She said. Her face was blank. Chihiro started to get really worried. Lin took a deep breath.
"Haku went missing a little over a year after you left. He asked Yubaba if he could take two days off to come and see you. He said something about a promise he made." Chihiro's gaze fell to the floor. Wave guilt flew over her.
'He got in trouble because of the promise he made me.' she thought as she followed Lin into the elevator.
"I saw him flying around that night, but I never saw him come back. I haven't heard or seen him since that night." Lin finished as they reached the floor that Yubaba lived on.
"I can't go past this point. You'll have to take it from here." She said with a fake smile. Chihiro nodded, and walked towards the large doors. She knocked, and waited for an answer as Lin shut the elevator doors, and went back down to where she was supposed to be.
"Ah, Chihiro, come in." The knocker said, making Chihiro jump. The doors opened to revile a long hallway filled with fancy carpeting and vases.
"I said come in." The voice called again, as Chihiro felt herself being pulled into the hallway with the doors shutting and locking behind her. When she came through the last set of doors, she tripped on the edge of the carpet, and landed on her head. She rubbed it as she stood up to see Yubaba doing paperwork. She brushed herself off, and then stood up tall.
"I want a job." She said, bold and clear, with more confidence then the last time she was there. Yubaba looked at her and smiled.
"I thought that you were going to say that. But why should I give you a job? The last time you worked here you cost me a fortune that is still not paid off." Yubaba said pointing her pen in Chihiro's direction. Chihiro bowed.
"I am truly sorry, Yubaba. It won't happen again." She promised, still bowed.
"Well, I can see that you've gained some manners." Yubaba said, as a piece of paper ad a pen flew over to Chihiro.
"You know what to do." She said as she went back to her paper work. Chihiro took the paper and pen, went over to the fireplace, wrote her name, and gave it back to Yubaba. Yubaba sighed.
"Ok. You're name will be Sen, just like last time." Yubaba said pulling a cord that hung from the ceiling. Sen looked confused.
'I thought that Haku was missing.' She thought as the doors opened.
"You rang?" A boy that looked sixteen with pitch-black hair, and cold ice blue eyes asked.
"Yes, Kafu, this girl has signed a contract. Set her up with a job." Yubaba said as she got up from her desk. Kafu bowed and looked at Sen.
"Come with me." He said as he went out the way he came. Sen's heart fell as she followed him. Yubaba said something under her breath, and the fireplace moved. Sen heard a rumbling coming from Yubaba's room. 'It must be thunder.' She thought as she walked into the elevator.
- - - - - - - -
Yubaba walked down the flight of stairs for the third time that day. Once she reached the bottom, she walked over to Haku's cell. "Guess what, Haku?" She said mockingly. Haku didn't say anything. He just stared.
"Guess who just came into my office looking for a job?" She asked again with a smile on her face. Haku still didn't say anything.
"Ok, I'll give you a hint. She was here before. She went to my sister's to give back the golden seal that you stole." Haku's eyes went wide.
"Can you give me her name?" Haku didn't say anything. He was still in shock.
'She came back for me.' He thought as he fought back the tears that threatened his eyes. Yubaba smiled as she waved her finger, making a slash across his left cheek. Haku's hand flew to his cheek as he glared at Yubaba.
"You'll get to see her real soon. She'll be punished for coming back, and for what she did to my bathhouse when No-face was here." She smirked as she waved her hand and gave him his dinner, which was already cold from the temperature in the cell. Haku gave Yubaba a death glare, but Yubaba brushed it off.
"Well, see you tomorrow." She said, laughing as she walked back up the stairs to leave him with his thoughts.

Kafu led Sen to the kitchen, where Lin and a few other women were working.
"Lin, Here is your new assistant." He said as he left. Sen smiled as she walked beside Lin, and began to dry the dishes that Lin had washed and put aside. After Lin finished with the dishes that she had to do, she took Sen up to the room to get her uniform.
"I had figured that you were going to come back sometime, so I put your uniform aside so that I wouldn't have to look for it again." She said as she pulled a familiar pink shirt and pants. Sen smiled, as she took them.
"Um... Lin, I think I need new pants." She smiled as she held the pants against her own legs. They went a little above her ankles. Lin laughed as she got a new pair of pants.
"Here ya go." She said as she smiled.
"Thank you." Sen replied as she stated to get changed.
- - - - - - - -
Haku stared at the mush as his stomach began to growl. He shivered at the temperature of the cell. He rubbed his arm with his hands trying to keep warm.
"I hope that Chihiro doesn't have to go what I've gone through. Please, Chihiro. Don't give her nay reason to make you come down here." He asked her to himself as tears ran down his cheeks.
- - - - - - - -
It had been about a week since Chihiro had come back to spirit world. In her spare time, she'd ask the workers if they knew anything about where Haku might be. Every time she got the same answer.
"I'm sorry, Sen. But I can't help you." She sighed in her bedroll. She still couldn't get to sleep.
"Haku, Where are you?" she asked herself as she thought of every place that he could be. She counted to make sure that she had left anyplace out. Pretty soon she was asleep. The next morning, while Sen and Lin were washing dishes, again, Kafu came into the kitchen. All the heads turned when he came into the room.
"I need Sen to come with me." He said in a crisp clear voice. Sen placed her towel on the counter as another girl took her place. She followed him silently. When they were in the hallway Sen broke the silence.
"Where are you taking me?" she asked.
"Yubaba wishes to see you. " He answered in a cold tone. Neither of them spoke the rest of the way there. Once there, Sen walked into the room, and Kafu left them alone. At first, Yubaba didn't say anything.
"You wanted to see me ma'am?" Sen asked bowing. Yubaba looked up, and smiled. "Didn't I tell you to call me Granny from then on?" she asked with a hint of laughter in her voice. Sen looked up.
"Granny?" She asked, eyes wide in shock as Zeniba stood up, walked around the desk and gave Sen big hug.
"It's wonderful to see you again." Sen said as she hugged Zeniba. "But if you're here, then where is Yubaba?" Sen asked. Zeniba smiled.
"I asked her if she could come over for an important business trip, and I asked her not to fly. I asked her to take the train." Zeniba said smiling. "I needed to show you something." She said, as she face got dark. She stopped smiling.
"What is it?" She asked in a worried voice. Zeniba chanted a spell, and the fireplace moved. Sen's eyes got wide with shock.
"Follow me." Zeniba said quietly. Sen gulped, and then followed her without a sound.
Chihiro: there better not be anything wrong with Haku or I swear......
