Hi! deadly-kitty here, with my first ever fan-fic-REVISED. I know what to do now so I'm fixing this one up and updating. I am so very sorry that I haven't been updating, despite my promises! I've had some major writer's block, but the curse has been lifted! I hope you enjoy this, and like how I fixed the chapters up.

So you all know, I have renamed this from its original title (The Second Curse) and will update it a chapter at a time from the beginning. I know that I have posted the first few before, but I have been editing, if only a little. I'm hoping to draw it out as a way to get reviews (HINT, HINT) so I'll know if people like it and if I should rack my brain trying to find ideas for a sequel. If this is your first time reading this particular fic, you probably don't know what I'm talking about, but my original readers ought to understand. Enough ranting on my part! Please R&R!

"Eeeek!" The girl ran screaming from the house.

She ran past a boy heading towards the house and stopped. She turned around and called to him to stay away from the house.

"The ghost will get you!" she called. He shrugged and continued on his way.

He was a teenager, 17 in fact, and looked incredibly handsome to all his female peers.

They even had a fan-club for him! His hair a silvery gray, his eyes the same.

He wanted to find a place to be alone. His secret base had been found and trampled in a fight with Kyo. He wanted solitude, or a friend to accept him. Yeah, like that's ever going to happen. He thought miserably to himself.

He brought himself out of his thoughts when the huge house popped into view.

Here I am. What's so scary about this place? I see no ghost.

He walked towards the door and opened it, peering inside. He didn't see anything, so he went in. He looked up at the vaulted ceiling, smiling to himself. Nice...

A strange light caught his eye on the second floor. He looked to identify the light, but it had vanished. Weird... He found the stairs and went up. There it is again. What is that thing? He looked around and spotted... a girl? Who's that? Kinda cute... and familiar...

He walked towards her, startling her.

"Excuse me... miss? Why are you here?"

" You shouldn't be here either." she said. He looks so familiar... she thought.

"Well, who are you, then?" He asked, changing the subject.

"You aren't ... scared of me? Don't you know who I am?"

"Well, not yet."

The girl giggled and stepped out so he could see her better, except for her feet.

"My name is Tohru Honda. Pleased to meet you, though I suspect you won't stay long. No one does..." He looked at her face, smiling before, but turned into a lonely expression. He took a moment to fully look at her. She had long, brown hair, and brown eyes. She was wearing a long white gown, that touched the floor, he guessed. He couldn't see her feet.

"My name is Yuki Sohma. Why do you think I wouldn't stay long?" Tohru stepped back looking incredibly frightened.

" No, I'm not eighteen yet! My curse isn't fulfilled yet! Don't take me away!" She turned and ran as fast as she could. Yuki, though startled by her abrupt change in behavior, chased after her, calling to halt her.

Then he noticed... her feet.

They weren't there.

He finally caught up and grabbed her arm, pulling her to him.

"Let go, Yuki, please... just forget you ever met me!" She tried to run again, but Yuki held tightly to her arm.

"What scared you? What curse are you talking about?" He pulled her towards the dusty sofa in the room and sat her down, sitting next to her.

"I am slowly disappearing, and when I turn 18 I will die. I didn't mean to alarm you, but it was another Sohma who cursed me."

"Who was it? Maybe I can help."

Tohru smiled bitterly. "It was Akito Sohma."


Well, what do you think? First chapter completed. Please review! And sorry for the cliffhanger.
