Chapter 10 – Day Seven: One Week

Sakura looked around in the rain, scared. It was really dark and she was downtown in a bad area. There was an ally way that was the shortcut to the good side, where she knew would be better off, but going through the dark and scary ally was what she was hesitant about. She began to walk through it… Closer… Closer… When she was halfway through the ally, something grabbed her shoulder and spun her around. She screamed, but the stranger covered her mouth and pushed her against the wall. She began to cry as the person began to proceed on her, until something grabbed the stranger and threw him away from her and the other side of the ally way. The two shadowy figures began to fight, that is, until the stranger who had attacked her pulled out a knife and stabbed her savior. The savior groaned and fell to the ground as the attacker ran away as fast as he could.

Sakura ran up to her savior and turned him onto his back and placed his head on her lap. When she looked down, shock and fear filled her as she saw whom her savior was. "Syaoran?"

Syaoran smiled slightly at her and began to raise a shaky hand to her cheek, cupping it slightly. "Sa-Sakura… I-I love y-you…"

Tears filled her eyes as the words escaped his mouth. "Syaoran, hold on, you'll be alright." She grabbed his other hand and held it tightly in hers as she pulled out her cell phone with her free hand.

Syaoran's breath began to come out harder and was more struggled as he began to shake. "Sa-Sakura…" Was his last word before his last breath escaped from his lungs.

"S-Syaoran…?" Sakura's eyes widened as she saw his eyes close slightly and peace overcame his face. Her tears were escaping freely now. "Syaoran! No! Syaoran!" Sakura knelt down and kissed his lips, crying harder than she ever had.

"No!" Sakura exclaimed shakily as she bolted up in bed. She looked around at her surroundings to find herself safe in her bed. She looked next to her expecting to see Syaoran there to wake him up and have him hold her like he normally would when she had a nightmare, but he wasn't there. 'Oh, that's right…' She thought. 'I kicked him out and made him sleep on the couch…' She sighed and got out of bed and lightly walked out of her room and into the living room. There, on the couch, laid the love of her life and best friend, Syaoran. Unharmed, alive, and sleeping. 'Okay, I'll just lay down next to him, and make sure to wake up before him and go back to bed.' She nodded as she walked to the couch and began to lie down next to him in the limited space there was. She pulled the blanket over her and cuddled into Syaoran.

Syaoran, feeling the movement, sleepily opened his eyes and looked at Sakura lying next to him on the couch. "Sakura…?"

"I had a nightmare…"

Syaoran smiled knowingly and pulled her against him. He wasn't sure if she forgave him, but for now he'd accept what she gave him. "It's okay, I'm here…" He looked at the clock to see that it was 3:53… He had only been sleeping for about five minutes… He can't sleep without her. He put his head in the crook of the neck, and if you didn't know any better, you'd think they were one person…

…The next morning…

Syaoran's eyes fluttered open to find Sakura no longer in his arms. The only thing that greeted his eyes was the television. Hadn't Sakura woken him up last night and slept with him because she had a nightmare? Suddenly he heard Sakura walk from behind the couch.

"Morning…?"

Sakura turned and smiled sadly at him. "Morning…" She looked down at the keys in her hand. "Mother saw you sleeping on the couch this morning and asked me why you were sleeping there… I simply replied that you wanted to watch one of the movie channels and you fell asleep there…"

Syaoran nodded. "Have… Have you thought about what I asked you?"

"I don't know yet…" Sakura finally rose her eyes from the key chains lying in her hands to see his tired face. "I-I don't know… If you'll hurt me again… If, if you really want to be with me or you just want me because I love you… And what I said to you got through your head and you figured I might be a better bet."

"Sakura…"

"Syaoran! I just… I just don't… Know you anymore. You're-You're different now… You kissed me so many times this week, and I thought it was because you might love me… But, you don't…" She wiped the tears from her make-up less face. "Because, you would have told me by now…" She sighed as she looked down again and walked to the door. "I'm going to go to the market, I'll be back in an hour…"

If you need a friend, don't look to a stranger,
You know in the end, I'll always be there.
But when you're in doubt, and when you're in danger,
Take a look all around, and I'll be there.

Syaoran sighed as he saw her close the door behind her. She sounded pained, but why didn't she think he loved her? His eyes widened. She was right! He had never told her he did! But wouldn't she get the idea? Then he smacked his head. She's as dense as they come, she'd never know. Quickly, he stood up from the couch in his shirt and boxers, and, not caring about his attire, slipped on some sandals and bolted out of the door.

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will.

Sakura sighed as she pressed the button for the elevator, and heard it moving up to her floor. It dinged, and she entered, pressing the main floor button. Syaoran, from the apartment door, heard the ding and ran to the elevator as fast as he could. He saw the door close and attempted to stop it, but it was fully closed by the time he reached it. He groaned in annoyance and ran down the hall a little more to the stairway and ran down the flights of stairs.

When your day is through, and so is your temper,
You know what to do, I'm gonna always be there.
Sometimes if I shout, it's not what's intended.
These words just come out, with no gripe to bear.

Tired and exhausted, he finally reached the main floor, successfully not slipping on the stairway and fall down and hurting himself. He continued to run through the halls, passing a few older women, who all gasped at how he was dressed. But he didn't care about any of that. All he cared about was Sakura.

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you...

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will.

He ran out and noticed that it was pouring rain, and was sure that by the time he reached Sakura he would be soaked and would be a little more noticeable than he already is, but continued to run anyway. It was freezing out and he could see his breath come out at every breath he exhaled. But nothing was going to stop him from telling her at that moment what he wanted to… If only he could think of how to say it.

I gotta tell you, I gotta tell you, I need to tell you...

He looked ahead of him and found Sakura not too far down the street, and he picked up speed. He ran up and grabbed her shoulder, causing her to jump and scream bloody murder.

"S-Syaoran? What-what are you doing out here? You'll freeze to death!"

"Sakura…" Syaoran pulled them aside and held her by her shoulders against the wall underneath a tarp, blocking them from the rain. "I-I love you. I think I've always loved you, I just, I just never knew it until this week. I-I want to spend the rest of my life with you, I want to marry you, hell, I even want you to bare my children, that's why I tell you that you say that in you sleep, because truly that's what I want. Please… Please forgive me… I-I can't live without you. I can't sleep without you beside me…" Tears formed and fell out of her eyes as she began to silently cry. Syaoran finally pulled her against him and hugged her tightly, holding on for dear like. "I love you so much…"

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you...

"I love you too… I love you too…" Her shaky voice replied, hugging him just as much as he was hugging her. It felt so good to hear those words escape from Syaoran's mouth and enter into her ears. She was the happiest girl alive. Syaoran smiled and pulled her away a bit before leaning down and kissing her softly on the lips, showing her how much he loved her through that one little kiss, to which she happily accepted and kissed back.

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will. I will. I will.

In one week, two best friends who never thought they would be more than just friends, loved and lost, but eventually found their way back to where they belonged. With each other.

The End.
