A/N: The song is "Lion" from the Narnia Soundtrack, sung by Rebecca St. James, I believe. I was listening to it and thought: Hm...that would work...And here is the finished product.

THIS WILL END UP BEING MORE THAN ONE CHAPTER!!! It's not JUST a songfic.

Disclaimer: Don't own anything. At all.

Chihiro sighed to herself as she stared out the window at the storm. Lightning flashed and her radio crackled, changing to another channel. She reached to change it back, but the song that had come on made her stop.

Mysterious

That's what I call You

I'm curious about You

I'm scared and not sure that You are safe

But Your eyes seem to say that You are good

She remembered Haku--how she had first met him. How she had been a whiny little girl and had been such a scaredy cat...But he had helped her and become her first friend. And yet everyone else seemed to think he was pure evil. Sometimes even she wondered.

This is not a dream that I'm living

This is just a world of Your own

You took me from all that I knew

Shown me how it feels to hope

With You with me, facing tomorrow together

I can learn to fly

Feels like I'm living in a lion's mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

Those three days were like a dream now; the most realistic dream in the history of the world. She had learned so much, grown so much...Haku, Lin, No Face, Boh...Even Yubabba had taught her something, helped her grow. "Haku," she whispered, tears filling her eyes as she stared out across storm-cloud-covered woods. Through the gloom she could just make out the lights of the Bathhouse...misty and smeared from the magic between the Spirit World and Human World.

Wise eyes, You see the core of me

Your gentleness melts me

And now I know that words cannot describe

The power that I feel when I'm with You

One of the thousands of drawings in her room was lying in front of her. She looked down at it and gazed into the deep green eyes. She remembered how they had glinted like cold steel in the elevator, how they had shown such warmth when he comforted her; how she had seen so much anguish and hopelessness in them when he had been a dragon and close to death. "Where are you?" She sobbed, tears dripping from her face like rain from the clouds, splattering on the perfectly rendered image of Haku.

This is not a dream that I'm living

This is just a world of Your own

You took me from all that I knew

Shown me how it feels to hope

With You with me, facing tomorrow together

I can learn to fly

Feels like I'm living in a lion's mouth, but the lion is

"You promised--you PROMISED," she sobbed, collapsing on the desk, her shoulders heaving with each sob. /I hate you!/ She thought bitterly. How could he put her through such agony?! It had been six years; SIX YEARS!!

Peace and power, love forever

Who am I to stand before You?

I am speechless

But in my weakness

You are here and all is well

"Help me, please," she whispered, her voice breaking as she looked back up at the window. She thought that she saw a glimmer of silver in the storm, but it was gone the next moment. You promised, you promised...the thought kept running through her mind like an old record that replayed the same thin over and over...

You took me from all that I knew

Shown me how it feels to hope

With You with me, facing tomorrow together

I can learn to fly

Feels like I'm living in a lion's mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

She would gladly have gone to another world, another, completely hostile world, if he was there. She just wanted to see him again...She had already gone to another world which she knew nothing of to see him. He had shown her what it meant to hope: She hoped, every second of her life after that meeting, that he'd fulfill his promise. That she could hear his voice...It was hell on earth when he never appeared.

He had taught her face each day and never run from her problems: they'd only catch up and beat the hell out of you. Now she was a tomboy; nobody messed with her because she'd beat the hell out of them if they asked for it.

He had taught her to fly: live like there's no tomorrow. Never give up. You can do anything you set your mind to...

Life was like living in the Lion's Mouth...but if you know how to deal with that lion, it can be an angel to you.

This is not a dream that I'm living

She saw the silver again--but this time she shot up, knocking over the radio from the desk: Her eyes weren't deceiving her. It was really him! She saw the familiar silver scales, the horns and the sea green mane...It was Kohaku...A new wave of tears spilled out of her eyes: this time, though, they were joyful, disbelieving tears, instead of drops of despair.

She tried to open the window, putting one hand on the desk to steady herself, but ended up putting it on the sharp side of a pencil. As she held her throbbing hand she knew it wasn't a dream. She felt a wind--just like the one that had pulled her into the Spirit World--flow through her room, sending drawings and sketches of dragons and boys flying.

He was finally fulfilling his promise.

Just as she managed to throw her window open a flash of lightning ripped the heavens, and she screamed, "HAKU!"

He was falling...falling...falling...

...is an angel...


This will end up being more than just this chapter...The others will probably not be songfics though.

Hope you liked it. And the ending is a bit sad, but it gets better later (I'm writing it as I speak...)
