Chapter 1

Haku brushed the smooth surface of the card with his fingertips, tracing over the name of the girl who has influenced him so much. Don't worry Chihiro. We will soon meet again. Smiling joyfully, he turned and walked towards the bathhouse.


Haku walked into Yubaba's office and stood respectfully at the door. The witch was working at her desk, buried in a pile of papers. She looked up and smiled as she saw him. "Ah. Haku. What may I do for you?"

Haku walked towards the witch, keeping an air of confidence. Stopping in front of her desk, he looked Yubaba in the eye with an unfaltering gaze and said in a cool voice, "I wish to resign my apprenticeship."

Yubaba laughed softly. "What is this Haku? You wish to resign? But I think you are forgetting one small technicality my boy." She looked at him with delighted confidence. "As long as I have your name, you belong to me."

Haku allowed himself a small smile. "No Yubaba. I have remembered my name. I am the Kohaku River." He turned and started leaving the room.

"You are going to find Sen aren't you?" Haku stopped walking but didn't turn around.

"But you know, you can't do that unless you have a physical link to her." Without thinking, Haku put his hand into his pocket and touched Chihiro's card, making sure it was still there.

"I see." Yubaba's voice lost its smug confidence and took on a dejected tone.

"Well, boy. I wish you luck. Even with a physical linkage, it won't be easy for you to make your way to the human world." Haku turned around in surprise at the touch of care in Yubaba's words.

She smiled at him. "When you see Sen, tell her that Bou misses her."

Haku smiled back at the old witch. "I will."
