Chapter 11: The wolf spirit?
Third person's P.O.V:
It's just like any other day for Chihiro. She woke up, had breakfast, chatted with friends, and spent time with Haku…
Tonight (A: N: Remember in the movie the spirits all worked at night), the bathhouse was booming with customers. Haku was upstairs calculating wages and doing paperwork whilst Chihiro was downstairs helping Lin to manage the baths. Haku would've preferred it if she just spent the time with him but she insisted on helping and ended up giving him the puppy eyes, which he clearly couldn't resist and to be brutally honest, spirits came from all over the world just to see Chihiro, she was the first being let alone human to escape Yubaba's contract. Even if Yubaba has changed over the years this was still definitely something pretty big.
Right now, some frogs, Lin and Chihiro were lined up at the front gate and ready to greet a powerful spirit, as told by Haku that should be arriving any minute. Out of nowhere Chihiro felt sudden warmth from the wind. As the warming active air particles collided with her skin, she felt a sudden shiver travel down her spine. It wasn't the same type of shiver that she got under Haku's touch, no that was the shiver filled with pleasure, but this shiver…it's exactly like the one she got when she was first thrown into the Mental Hospital in the human world.
'Something doesn't feel right. Why do I feel like something bad is going to happen? ... NO! Don't be daft Chihiro! Nothing's going to happen, you've greeted plenty of guests tonight and nothing's happened so why should something happen this time?! YOU'RE JUST NERVOUS! Now relax…relax…' Chihiro scolded herself.
In a split second, a pure black wolf appeared. Its ruby red eyes shone in the moonlight; its vicious claws from its four paws dug into the smooth wood on the bridge, leaving a thin trail of splintered wood behind as if it was a sign of rebuke. Lin's eyes had gone wide like saucers 'what is this thing?!' the woman thought to herself. Right now her priority is to just give this spirit a bath, get him out of ASAP…oh and keep Chihiro safe or else she knew that she wouldn't ever hear the end of it from that dragon upstairs.
The wolf continued to walk towards Chihiro and Lin was getting ready. If the wolf was a spirit that loathed humans then she would use her own power, (even if it might not be enough) to protect her younger sister. Yes, even though Chihiro has not known Lin for that long, just like Haku, Kamaji, Zeniba, she has become attached to her and right now, her older sister protective instincts were starting to arise.
The wolf continued to walk and then when it reached in front of Chihiro, there was a black flash that blinded everyone's sight. Chihiro, just like all the others, used her arms to cover her eyes. Then the black light died down. Chihiro unguarded her eyes, and then her brown orbs met those blood red ones. She realised that the wolf that stood in front of her just a moment ago is now in the shape of a young man, probably around 18 or 19. He had jet black hair that matched his fur in his wolf form, such pale skin that made him look dead…yet not dead at the same time, and he was wearing a matte black outfit. The man stepped forward onto one knee and held out a hand that reached for Chihiro's, then placed a small kiss on it. "Milady, are you the famous Chihiro that escaped Yubaba's contact 5 human years ago" the spirit asked as he held the human girl's hand and looked into her eyes. Lin was still cautious about this guy, something about him just didn't seem right to her but she inwardly sighed in relief a little. At least this spirit didn't want to kill her. Besides to her it was more fun to just tell Haku the fact that a wolf got to kiss 'HIS' Chihiro's hand.
Chihiro nodded and cautiously said "that's me. Can I help you?"
The wolf spirit smirked at this. By now, all the other bathhouse workers had all gone back into the bathhouse, due to fright so that only leaves Lin and Chihiro with the wolf spirit. "Of course milady, my name is Jaaku. Do you think you could pass a message to Nigihayami Kohaku Nushi, god of the Kohaku River for me?"
'Pass on a message for Haku?' Chihiro thought but in spite of her doubts she replied with a smile and said "of course. What would that be?"
The spirit rose to his feet. He seemed around Haku's height so Chihiro had to look up to see his face. Jaaku bent down and whispered into the human's ear "tell him that my job is done. Three days is all he has left, oh and enjoy every second, because it won't last long."
Chihiro's eyes widened a little. 'WHAT? What on earth does he mean?!' Her body suddenly shuddered in fear as Jaaku smirked. It was an evil type of smirk, the type a predator would give to its prey. She looked towards Lin only to see she was in a shocked state. She then turned her head back to Jaaku and said "urmmm…of course…"
"Thank you, milady, it has been a great pleasure speaking to you. I will take my leave now." He said. There was a black flash again and then he was in wolf form again.
The wolf form Jaaku spun around and walked to the end of the bridge. Jaaku then turned his fury head and locked his blood red eyes with Chihiro's innocent brown ones for one last time and then he sped off into the direction of the forest nearby. In no time, he vanished.
"What was that all about?" Chihiro said as she turned he head towards Lin, who had finally snapped out of her shocked state.
"I don't know…what was his message anyway?"
"That's what's confusing me. He said "tell him that my job is done. Three days is all he has left, oh and enjoy every second, because it won't last long." What do you think he means Lin?"
"I have no idea but I have a bad feeling about this. We should tell Haku about this now."
Chihiro agreed with Lin right away and the two walked back into the bathhouse. Everyone seemed to be resumed to their jobs. Chihiro and Lin took the elevator up to Haku's room, something about that guy Jaaku…just doesn't add up.
Back in the dark forest, the wolf with the blood red eyes looked towards the full moon and thought 'I've waited for half a decade and finally now…all I have to wait is 3 more days and she'll be mine. It's part of fate that she becomes my property and god or not, that dragon can't break fate'.
Well what do you guys think of Jaaku? Sorry for any wolf lovers out there! I just couldn't think of another animal at that time.
