Once She Haunts You, There's No Stopping It is the 2nd chapter of the Skip Beat! manga series.


Kyoko is now living at Darumaya, where she works in the evenings. Kyoko seeks a way to enter showbiz through LME, Sho's rival agency, but she's not really interested in acting, singing nor any talent... What will she do now? Will Kyoko just give up?

Chapter Summary

After her "transformation" Kyoko left her apartment and started living with the family that runs Darumaya, the shop she works for at night. Taisho is not very happy at her transformation, Taisho's wife explains to her, because he liked how she was before: a really nice girl, always smiling and happy to help.

Kyoko bows.

Taisho’s wife wonders if she is the daughter of some big inn owner, because she seems to know so much about the business of attending people. Kyoko used to spend most of her time at Sho's parent's inn after all. The husband just throws stones at her about the fact that she is not even going to high school.

Kyoko leaves for her "job" mad as hell because not only was Sho being sent to school and he never told her, but because she left with him, she is now a runaway and can't go back home.

Kyoko's "job" is now standing in popular areas waiting to be scouted, but it's been 5 days already and nobody has approached her. She is not giving up. Kyoko decides to go directly to a famous company and ask for a job.

She ended up in LME, Sho’s rival company agency. She manages to sneak her way into an interview with a producer in the company, Takenori Sawara. He asks her in what section she wants to work, but she has no idea what he is talking about. Does she want to be a singer? She is not really good at it.  A talent perhaps? She never really liked that.

There just doesn't seem to be anything she is interested in.  Sawara attempts to throw her out of the place. And in the process, Ren Tsuruga appears. Kyoko suffers an attack of hate.  Sawara wonders why she is kneeling in horror instead of fainting like every other girl would.

Ren wonders who she is, Sawara explains what happened. Before Kyoko can blink twice, she is out in the street and Ren is closing the door and telling her not to come again. Kyoko is not going to forgive him.

As the day pass, Sawara and other workers realize that Kyoko is outside kneeling on the floor, waiting! Ren watches her. 

When Sawara is about to go home, he notices that she is no longer outside. But in fact, she is waiting for him. She stalks him while asking to get in LME, as they walk, in the taxi he takes home to avoid her. She continues to stalk him even in Sawara's home, during his bath and while he attempts to sleep!

After four days of stalking, Kyoko is happy that Sawara finally gave up and agreed to meet her again, and thanks him a lot.

Sawara warns her that they pass a test to all the newcomers to see if they can really do it or not. He expects her to be very scared, but instead she just agrees happily.

On her way to the audition, she bumps into somebody who just happens to be Ren Tsuruga.
