16-year old Chihiro looked at her digital alarm clock.It was 12:30 am.It was summertime and her parents had left to America for the summer, leaving her with her grandmother, who lived nearby. "Diiiiing.Diiiiing." The doorbell chimed. "Who could it be this early, or so late?" Chihiro muttered.She opened the door slowly. "Hey, hun! How's it going?" "LIN!" Chihiro nearly shouted. "How'd you get here? What spirit are you?" "I'm the spirit of YOUTH! Don't cha know?" Lin replied.
" ...still..how'd you get here?" Chihiro asked. "I can see any person in the world as they are in their youth (0-36 years of age), but it took me a while to find you." Lin said."And you know why Haku couldn't come! He doesn't have a home." "I've came here to let you know this: Yubaba died dueling against a bad spirit she was trying to chase away from the bathhouse.Since Yubaba's son is too young to become the new manager, all the spirits in the bathhouse have nominated you to be the new ruler." Lin exclaimed. "Shhhhhhhhh.There is a WOMAN SLEEPING!" Chihiro said. "Oops, guess I couldn't sense her.She must not be youthful." Lin whispered. "Of course not," Chihiro whispered. "She's my grandmother."
