I'M BACCCCCKKKKKK!!!!! I know, I know, I disappeared again, but I could explain! "Please Don't Cry" was annoying the heck out of me! I can't make a perfect plot for it, so I'm kind of putting it on a (maybe) permanent hold. But to make up for it, I'm starting on a new fic! -^_^- I hope you guys enjoy this, because it's the first time I'm going to try this out. Okay, enough talking. I have more plans, but if you want to read them, go read my personal profile. Easy as that! Now, on to the first chapter!
Chapter one: Sakura
For once in her life, 15-year old Sakura Kinomoto was early for school. VERY early, as a matter of fact. This is because a certain Guardian Beast of the Seal decided to wake her up an hour earlier and yelled in her ear that she was an hour late for school. The moment she realized that she was actually early, she made a vow to not feed Kero-chan and make him suffer for waking her up. But for now, she decided to catch up on her sleep by going to her class and dropping her head to her desk. When she got there, she was a little surprised to see her best friend, Tomoyo Daidouji, sitting on her desk and drawing something.
Sakura wasn't all that surprised to see her best friend there because she always knew that Tomoyo was never late. But how early did she go to school? Even she had no clue about that.
Tomoyo didn't look up when Sakura entered the room. That was because she was too engrossed with whatever it is she was drawing. Sakura, getting her sleep back all forgotten, decided to make her presence known.
"Morning Tomoyo-chan," she greeted, smiling brightly at the raven-haired girl. Tomoyo finally looked up, surprised to hear her usually-late-best-friend.
"Morning Sakura-chan," she replied, surprise and amazed evident in her amethyst eyes. "Why are you early today? That's not you to be early." Sakura immediately frowned and dumped her stuff in her desk before sitting in a chair in front of Tomoyo's desk.
"Kero-chan thought it was funny to pretend that I was an hour late for school," she said. Tomoyo giggled.
"I see," she said before going back to her drawing. Sakura looked at it.
"What are you drawing there Tomoyo-chan?" she asked. Tomoyo finished her drawing before holding it up for Sakura to see. It was a portrait of a cherry blossom tree, and under it were her, Sakura, Syaoran Li, Sakura's boyfriend and Eriol Hiiragizawa. Sakura squealed, seeing how Tomoyo perfectly drew each of them.
"This is beautiful Tomoyo-chan!" she exclaimed. Tomoyo blushed, yet smiled proudly at her drawing.
"Thanks Sakura-chan," she said. At that moment, the door to their classroom opened, revealing a dark-haired boy with sapphire eyes framed with glasses. It was Eriol Hiiragizawa.
Now normally, Sakura would be oblivious about everything around her. Though that's not the case when it comes to love. In fact, she can point out a person who's in love from a mile away, having experienced it herself 3 years ago with Syaoran. So she was pretty quick to notice how Tomoyo's eyes lit up the moment Eriol walked in. She also noticed how Tomoyo's smile was a bit more wide when she greeted Eriol. Looking at Eriol, it was pretty obvious that Tomoyo was the only person in his line of vision.
Sakura wondered what's going on between these two. Sure, she's seen them getting closer and closer as days went by, and once she accused Eriol of taking Tomoyo away from her, but she bit her tongue, seeing how Tomoyo quite enjoyed Eriol's company, and vice versa. But right now, she was getting this vibe (no, it wasn't magic, she was sure of it) that they haven't shown their affection to each other.
"Hello Eriol-kun," she said, deciding to interrupt their little eye contact. It worked. Eriol blinked a few times before giving Sakura a smile, as if realizing that Tomoyo wasn't alone in the room.
"Hello Sakura-chan. You're early today," he replied. His eyes showed amusement when Sakura frowned once more.
"No need to remind me," she said, imagining what she would do to Kero-chan as soon as she gets home from school. Eriol focused his gaze back to Tomoyo, who was giggling at Sakura's reaction.
"Morning Tomoyo-chan," he said. Sakura looked at her best friend, who turned to Eriol and gave him a bright smile. If Sakura was oblivious to love, she would've failed to notice that Tomoyo's cheeks had a tinge of pink in them.
"Morning Eriol-kun," she replied. Again, they shared some kind of silent conversation just by staring at each other. Just as Sakura couldn't take the silence, Eriol broke eye contact with Tomoyo once more and went over to his seat: behind Tomoyo.
Sakura watched as they communicated with one another. Eriol would say something that would cause Tomoyo to laugh, and in turn Tomoyo would say something that would bring out the witty-Eriol and then they would banter good-naturedly until Eriol would say something again that would cause Tomoyo to laugh. Sakura smiled. It was safe to say that her two friends were in love with one another.
Though it may not be obvious to other people, Sakura could see how Eriol would find ways to touch Tomoyo; from passing pencils to tapping her shoulder. It was also evident that they could both read each other's mind. She noticed this when Tomoyo turned to Eriol to see if he had an extra pen to find Eriol already holding one for her. She would then gratefully smile at him and turn back around, and before Eriol could even tap Tomoyo on the shoulder, she's already holding an eraser for him to use. Sakura continued to watch them until someone tapped her on the shoulder. She turned to see her boyfriend, Syaoran Li, smiling at her.
"Morning Sakura," he said before kissing her on the cheek, making her blush. Even after all this time, Syaoran could still make her blush just by a simple touch or kiss.
"Morning Syaoran," she replied. She was then suddenly aware that it was almost time for classes to start. She jumped off the seat that she was sitting and fixed her stuff on her desk before sitting. Syaoran took his seat behind her.
"So, what have you been doing all this time?" he asked. Sakura smiled and glanced at Tomoyo and Eriol before turning to Syaoran.
"Nothing. Just watching two people fall in love," she replied.
All right! That's chapter one! Chapter two will be Syaoran's point of view! Please Review! See ya!
