Whoo! I admit, I'm kind of getting a kick out of this picture. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE adores her hair! So what do I do? I go ahead and get rid of it. No, but really, there is plot behind this XD // As you know, she is ill. The symptoms first began to show when she was younger, about the age of 7 or so. Being none the wiser, they gave her all sorts of medication, one after the other if the previous failed. This kind of heavy medicine being administered to a child, whose body was still too weak to properly deal with the medicine, ended up reacting badly and her hair fell out. She's only 9 years old here, but her hair is growing back now. It's still short, and she's still unwell, so she doesn't go out either for anyone to see. In this scene, she has to welcome foreign guests with her family and they've made her come out of her room to do so. She's embarrassed and upset here, and she'd rather hide behind her father's kimono than face people the way she is. // I'm super excited about this picture, not sure why though. I think it's because her father's made a kind-of debut. XD He plays a big role in Haru's life, though there's more to it than that. The hair was really HARD to edit, you guys D: Oh my god, I would not advice spiky boy hair to any of you gals, it's hell on the hand and took ages to finish. Original - Kushina!
