Eight years have past since Sakura Avalon opened the Book of Clow. Eight years of friendship with her lifelong companions Yue and Keroberos. With her grade twelve graduation slowly creeping up on her, what more could the growing cardcaptor have in front of her?
Tori stood at the foot of the stairs, tapping his foot on the hardwood. Even though he had graduated a number of years ago, he promised his little sister he'd take her and Madison grad dress shopping, "Sakura, if you don't hurry up, we'll never get to the mall!" Tori shouted.
Up in her room, the eighteen-year old Sakura rummaged through her closet, "Oh I knew I left it here someplace," Sakura said, opening up her drawers, "Kero's going to kill me," Sakura whispered as she opened yet another drawer.
"Am I now? How so?" Kero said, floating out from behind the TV. A stress bubble appeared on Sakura's forehead. She giggled weakly, and closed the drawers with her foot, "Did you loose it again!" Kero asked, slightly agitated. Sakura nodded shamefully. Kero sighed calmly, "Sakura, if you don't remember where you put it..." Kero began.
"I know," She said cutting him short, "My dad could find it lying around, or worse! Tori could vaccum it up!" She dove into her laundry pile and ravaged through every skirt, and shirt she could find.
"Clow Reed never had this much trouble with losing things," Kero whispered to himself as he flew under the bed, "Although there was that one time he lost his "10,000 ways to Make Pudding" cookbook...or was that me?" he said questioningly as he lifted the lid to a shoebox. He flew back out to see Sakura still continuing her frantic search.
Sakura threw down the last box and collapsed on the bed, "I'll never find it..." she reached up to grab her doll from the shelf above her head. It was the same doll that Madison had given her so many years ago, the same one that wore the costume she wore when she surpassed the final judgement. Something hard hit her forehead, "Ow!" Sakura said bluntly as the object fell onto her blankets. She gasped in excitement and grabbed it in her hands.
"Hey, you found it!" Kero said happily, "Take good care of that key Sakura," he said scoldingly.
"I know," she said, placing the Key of Star around her neck.
Downstairs, Tori grew more impatient, "Hurry up squirt!" He yelledm knowing that it would get her attention.
Sakura boiled with anger. She raced out her door and into the hallway, "Stop...calling...me..." she yelled as she reached the top of the stairs. She planted her feet and glared at her brother, teeth clentching, "SQUIRT!" she yelled as she ran down the stairs to meet the gaze of her brother. Tori didn't grow too much after Sakura became a Cardcaptor. Now at eighteen, their gazes almosy met (but Tori was still a little bit taller).
Tori gasped with a fake smile, "It's alive," he said raising his hands in the air, "come on, let's go get Madison," he said bluntly. Tori opened the door and headed for the car. On his eighteenth borthday he bought a black Lexus, and has had it ever since. Sakura grabbed her bag and headed out the door. In flash, Tori, Sakura and the black Lexus had zipped around the corner, and were on their way to Madison's house.
Since Mr. Avalon was teaching at the school today, Kero floated casually down the stairs and straight to the refridgerator. He grabbed the handle and pulled vigorously, with no success. Finally, remembering he was still a "teddy bear", he backed away from the fridge. His small wings, grew to gigantic proprtions. They formed a cocoon around the small beast. In no time at all, the small Kero had transformed into the regal Keroberos. With his change complete, he returned to the fridge. He opened it slowly and gazed at the wonderments.
Just as he was about to take an enormous bite out of Sakura's pudding cake, his keen ears picked up a soft sound. He turned his head slowly. No one was there. He shrugged his shoulders, and turned his attention back to the fridge.
A dark figure emerged from the shadows. It crept silently along the floor until it was directly behind Keroberos. It raised a cloaked arm above the majestic beast.
Kero heard the noise again, but was too late to respond to it. He turned his head, and his eyes widened to double their size, "You..." he began. The figure brought down its arm onto the creature's head. Kero couldn't resist. This lifeform drained his energy. So much that he could no longer uphold himself as Keroberos, and unwillingly returned to his smaller form.
Drained of all effort, Kero fell to the ground, but didn't hit it. The cloaked figure caught the tiny creature before impact. Little Kero lay in the palm of the figure's hand, snoring, and sleep talking, "Hmm...pudding...mmm...yum...so...good,".
The shadowed figure opened the fridge door, and placed Kero on the pudding cake. A slightly deep feminine voice rose from the curls of the cloak, "Sleep well, Keroberos," and with a low hiss, and a small cloud of black smoke, the figure disappeared.
