Hello everyone! I'm finally back guys!

I know that this story hasn't been updated in a while and I'm terribly sorry for that. Despite that, I hope that you all will enjoy this chapter that I worked so hard on.

And yes: this story is officially off the hiatus. So, there will be more updates in the future when I get more ideas.


Getting Stronger

...3 months after the curse was broken...

Well, the schedule was pretty much back to normal. Hatori was hard at work as always, and Tohru, well, was being Tohru. Tohru decided not to take the job after Hatori persuaded her to wait until after the baby was born.

She was about 4 months along now and she was really starting to get into the pregnancy symptoms.

She was becoming, of course, heavier, craving strange foods and was lashing out in mood swings left and right. Hatori was starting to get worried around this time.

He, on the other hand, was watching her and her diet carefully. And, so it seemed, she was healthy and only half-way there...

"Tohru. I'm back," Hatori walked into the house and set his keys on the kitchen table.

There was no answer.

"Tohru?," Hatori asked again.

Normally, Tohru would be happily running towards her husband as he came back from work. This was certainly out of the ordinary and that made Hatori start to worry.

Concerned, Hatori took a peek in the living room before walking upstairs to look for his wife.

When he checked the rooms and discovered that she wasn't in any of them, he went into panic mode.

Now blindly searching, he ran towards the bathroom: the only place he didn't check so far.

The door was locked.

"Tohru! Tohru, are you in there?! Tohru!," Hatori beat on the door and called out to his wife.

He still didn't get an answer from the other side.

This only made him yell louder and more frantic.

"Tohru! Answer me! Are you okay?! Tohru?!"

In a desperate attempt to get to his wife, Hatori ran downstairs and grabbed the bathroom door key. He then ran back to the bathroom faster than the speed of lightning.

Calming down a bit, he managed to open the door and got inside.

When he finally saw her, he breathed a sigh of relief.

Tohru was in the bathtub, calm and safe. She was sleeping quietly, like a little angel.

Hatori smiled.


Yes...I do understand that this chapter was a bit pointless, I know. I just had to get back into the story-writing mood and so I wrote a small bit of fluff to get it going again.

I hope this didn't disappoint too much, but I would love it if you reviewed. :)
