I flung myself through the portal, the wind ripping at my hair.
The clouds were left behind me as I hurtled through the sky and I left what I knew and held sacred for the first time.
I am a YukiDaruma. A spirit that lives in the heavens and comes down to the tiny little planet earth to retrieve souls. That's what we absorb so that we can stay alive.
YukiDaruma's have no physical body's, so every winter we descend to your little planet and take the form of a human girl (we are all female spirits) that is quite like a normal human body except the fact that we are completely made out of snow. We do look exactly like any other human though, except we melt when spring comes -unless we get the soul and use it as something to get us back-. I don't really know how it works, I'm still young and have never gone to your planet before.
After a long and completely boring fall to earth I finally landed as softly as the ascending snow. Of course, I was more or less ascending snow too. I looked around, searching for my target. No one had explained how to find it!
I surveyed the landscape. Tree. House. Telephone pole. Street. Mail box. Stray cat. Guy. Bush. Snow- Wait, guy?
When I saw him I freaked out and hid in the bush, which sadly enough was filled with thorns and thistles. Bad luck, that's how my life was. Just a big wad of bad luck! I could tell that he had heard me since he was walking toward the bush. Why hadn't anyone told me how hard it was to do this? No one had warned me about this.
To be continued...
