Shortly after Kakfa moves into the library, an apparition begins to appear in his room at night. She appears to be a ghost who resembles Miss Saeki at fifteen years old. Kafka is attracted to her, but she doesn’t seem to be able to see or hear him. Because Miss Saeki is still alive, Kafka refers to the mysterious girl as a “living ghost.”
