Kiyone grumbled as the three Angels settled themselves around her hospital bed.
"I can't believe I have to stay here."
"Oh chill," Sakura smirked, "How bad can it be… I mean you're not the one who had to trek through the jungle of death to fight against the forces of darkness so what're you complaining about?"
Kiyone rolled her eyes.
"Jeez, some people have been getting annoying ever since they saved the world," she muttered.
"How come you're out of bed?" Kiyone demanded.
The ex-Angel winked at her.
Kiyone glared at her as the three Angels smothered giggles.
"So what happened to the books and the talismans?" Nivaline asked noticing the lack of necklaces, bracelets and rings.
"Oh those?" Meiling said casually, "The guardians took them and the books as well when they returned back to the Limbo."
"Why?" Kiyone asked curiously.
"They're too dangerous to be kept here on earth. And with the Void gone, there's no point in keeping them around," Tomoyo shivered, "If they got in the wrong hands…"
"Oh well," Kiyone shrugged, "That's not going to happen now is it? So why worry?"
"Damn right," Sakura agreed.
Meiling laughed and glanced down at her watch.
"OH MAN!" she yelled beginning to panic.
"I'm late! God, I'm going out with Marcus tonight! I've got to get ready!" Meiling grabbed her bag and darted out the door as everyone stared after her.
"She needs to chill," Kiyone said slowly.
"And I need a social life," Sakura groaned, "My plans for tonight include DVDs, pyjamas and some chocolate ice-cream."
"My plans as well," Tomoyo sighed, "I need a boyfriend."
They hung around for a few more minutes before leaving the hospital.
"See you tomorrow?" Sakura called.
"Yeah," Tomoyo nodded, "See ya!"
They both climbed into their cars and drove off as back in the hospital Nivaline and Kiyone continued to laugh about the girls' antics.
Meiling sighed in pleasure as she devoured the final traces of her chocolate desert.
"Chocolate," she sighed blissfully, "Is there anything if can't fix?"
"A stomach ache?" Marcus suggested playfully.
"Maybe," she shrugged, "But I swear at times, it's better than sex."
Marcus raised an eyebrow at her as the Asian Angel flushed.
"I mean… not when I having sex with you… I enjoy that very much, because hello pleasure and… and…" Meiling turned red as she continued to babble, "Okay, I going to stop now. Okay? Okay…"
Marcus laughed as Meiling stared down at her plate in embarrassment.
"Meiling?" Marcus called softly.
"Can I ask you a question?"
The man slowly got up and walked over to her side of the table, Meiling stared at him as he knelt down in front of her. As she watched, he pulled something out from his jacket pocket. Opening up the tiny velvet box he showed the ring inside to her.
"Will you marry me?"
Meiling stared at him.
Sakura growled in frustration as her doorbell rang. Pulling on a bathrobe, she hurried over to her door and pulled it open.
"What?" she growled.
She had just started watching 'Sleepless in Seattle', her all time favourite movie, and did not like the fact that her viewing had been rudely interrupted by whoever was at the door.
"Jeez, you look grumpy," Xiaolang teased.
Sakura's eyes widened in shock at the sight of seeing him standing at her door.
"Xiaolang?" she said slowly, "Aren't you… aren't you in hospital?"
"I got out," Xiaolang explained, "So ta-da! Here I am."
"Why are you here?" Sakura asked curiously.
Xiaolang smiled charmingly at her.
"I've got a question."
"And that is?"
He pulled a white rose out from behind his back and presented it to her.
"Ms. Kinomoto, would you go out on a date with me?"
Sakura gaped at him.
Tomoyo hummed as she brushed her wet hair. Popping a bag of popcorn into the microwave, she hit the on button and wandered off into her living room.
Suddenly the phone rang.
Tomoyo glanced at the clock.
Who would call her at this late hour?
Frowning in confusion, she picked up the phone.
Tomoyo slowly sat down.
"Eriol," she said evenly.
'I know you probably don't want to see me ever again… but I love you. And I think you know that,' the man began slowly.
Tomoyo remained silent.
'I don't know what's going to happen but I'm going to sort myself out. I'm going to get a job… a legitimate job and try to live straight…and then I'll return. But…but this takes time… and I'm wondering…' Eriol trailed off, 'Will you wait for me?'
Across Los Angeles, from three separate mouths came the same word.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASun Moon Lake
Four tablets were inlaid into the wall of the cave but only three was written on.
The fourth was blank.
Blazing red light struck the surface of the fourth stone tablet as symbols began appearing on the smooth surface.
The writing was in an ancient form of mandarin but once deciphered, it read a simple message:
An angel shall fall into darkness,
And when she arises,
Her ascension will herald the end.AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Within the misty realms of the Limbo, Mini-Meiling felt the prophecy appear on the stone tablet and smiled sadly.
"You think you've won. You think this is the end," she whispered gazing off into the distance, her mind focused on the three Angels as they celebrated a new chapter in their lives, "But for you? It's only just begun."
A/Notes: Hahahaha! Evil me, finishing on a cliff hanger but what can I say (shrugs)
Anyway, sorry this took way too long to get out but chapter 32 was supposed to be the last chapter but when I hit 90 pages I realised it was way too long and separate into two for easier reading.
Please, please, please review! More reviews may make me want to start writing the sequel earlier. I've suddenly become very unsure of the title I picked out earlier so that may change… I think.
Anyway, the dream sequences in chapter 33 (Full Circle Part 2) contains a lot of foreshadowing of what is to come… so if you want you can go back and try to decipher what is going to happen. Good luck! And oh, in case you're unsure the Void card was not changed into the Hope, the Love card actually managed to deflect the curse and use that to destroy the Void or rip it apart into five separate pieces.
Well, this story has take me two plus years to write up and it's been quite a ride. This is the very first multi-chaptered story, I have EVER finished so yay for me.
Before I go I want to thank the creators of both Cardcaptor Sakura and Charlie's Angels because without those as basis this humble little story would've never came about. I also want to thank the numerous T.V. shows, books and other stories I have drew ideas from (Buffy the Vampire Slayer gets a big mention!).
I want to thank those people who gave me the characters of Nivaline, Kiyone, Dan Williams and Diana Armstrong. Without them this story would've lacked a lot of thing.
And most of all I want to thank all the reviewers who have reviewed and hollered for me to continue… without your support I may have never written or complete this!
SO THANK YOU TO ALL MY READERS AND REVIEW!
And on a final note, you think this story was full of angst? Believe me when I say the sequel will be a lot darker (evil smirk).
Stay tuned and eventually Syaoran's Angels 2 will be posted… I hope.
