Author's Note: Well…this is it. The epilogue, which means that this story is now over. I can't believe it. I've made it a routine to upload or update a new story and then update THIS one, but now it's over. Hard to believe. But it's time for me to move on with the crossover. More details at the end.

Summary: After recalling The Final Judgment, Sakura decides to take her leave. But she's quickly stopped by her best friend, who again makes a desperate plea.

Episode 59- The Epilogue

After seeing how late it was, Sakura knew she had to be getting home before it got dark. Besides, she did what she needed to do. She got her head cleared and that's all she really wanted. It was a long walk out of Madison's estate and that gave Sakura a little more time to think. Sakura thought about the scrapbook she had in her hand.

"Is it me, Kero…or do I feel like we've remembered pretty much everything that's happened?" Sakura thought.

Kero shook his head. "Sakura, there's been a lot that's happened over your life. There's no way we can remember ALL of it. Yeah, maybe for the last few months we've been recalling every capture of the Clow Cards, but that's not all that's happened in your life. Your life is so much more than that.

"And yeah, looking back was a lot of fun. Going after the Clow Cards was an exciting time and I think it made everything a lot more interesting. But there's been a lot that's gone on since then that we can say the same thing about. Not all of them are fond memories, but they're still exciting and out of the ordinary.

"I think that's why we've kept this scrapbook in the first place. Whenever we miss those old times, we can always look back and admire them. But we can't look at the past forever. We have to move on with our future. And I have a feeling the future won't be any less exciting."

"I guess you're right," Sakura agreed. "We don't know what's going to happen in the future. But that's another thing that bothers me…"


"It's that dream again, isn't it?" Kero guessed.

Sakura nodded. "I just can't get it out of my mind. And looking back at The Final Judgment only made me feel worse about it. Think about it, Kero. Every time I've had a dream like this, it's always come true in one form or another. The dream I had over Tokyo Tower, the dream where I saw Eriol, Ruby Moon, and Spinner Sun, and all the other prophetic dreams I had since then. They've all come true. And that scares me."

"You think something bad will happen, don't you?" Kero asked.

Sakura nodded. "I can take care of myself…and I'm sure Tori can to. But you can't begin to understand everything I saw, Kero. That's why I don't want to tell Li. He'll just get hurt…or worse."


Sakura gasped and turned around to see Madison was following her, holding her camera as she always did.

Sakura sweatdropped. "Madison…what are you doing?"

"I thought this would be something worth taping," Madison said sheepishly. "Sakura…haven't you told Li about your dream yet?"

"Madison…I can't," Sakura moaned. "The dream can't come true if Li doesn't know about it. He won't have a chance to try and prevent it from happening."

"Sakura, there's no logic in what you're saying!" Madison snapped. "If you don't tell Li about what you saw, he won't be able to help you! And there's nothing that says he won't walk into it anyway!"

"Madison, you don't understand…"

"If you don't tell Li, then I'll tell him myself!!"

"YOU CAN'T!!" Sakura pleaded. "Please don't tell him, Madison! I don't want him to die! I don't want him to walk into that dream! And the best way to make sure it doesn't happen is if he doesn't know about it! PLEASE…you PROMISED you wouldn't tell him! You promised as my best friend that you wouldn't say anything!!"

Sakura, now in tears, saw she had hit something deep in Madison. Madison looked like she desperately wanted to say something, but she could never argue with Sakura. In the end, she would always follow whatever Sakura wanted.

"Ok…I won't tell him," Madison choked. "But you promise me you'll be careful!"

"I know what to expect now," Sakura nodded. "I won't be taken without a fight. And I won't let them get to Tori, either. I can do this. I promise I'll be careful. Trust me."

Madison hung her head down. "I trust you, Sakura."

Before Madison turned back, she gave Sakura a hug. It was an eerie feeling. It was as if it were a parting hug; as if Sakura were dying or something. Madison finally released the hug…and walked back, leaving Sakura alone with Kero.

"I trust you, too," Kero said.

"Thanks, Kero," Sakura said softly. "But…what if the worst DOES happen?"

"I don't think it'll come to that," Kero said comfortingly. "You've gone through MUCH worse, Sakura. And you've faced a lot of challenges in your life that would make anyone else fall to their knees.

"Sakura, you've done EVERYTHING I could ever imagine. I knew you were the one to hold the Clow Cards, but you've done SO much more than I imagined possible. And whatever challenge faces you in the future, I know you can do it. Because I still believe that you can do anything!"

It was a long speech, but it definitely did its job. Sakura felt much better. Kero had so much confidence in her. And with his confidence, Sakura started to believe in herself a lot more.

And Sakura was ready to face whatever was in her future.
