Sakura was hit by another coughing fit just outside the gate to the school. For once, she thought that she wasn't going to be late, but she had to stop because she was coughing so hard. She wasn't feeling good at all, but she didn't want to miss a day of school. Even Kero thought that she should have stayed home, but she had denied herself that.


Kero rubbed his eyes as he looked, sleepily, over at Sakura, while she was coughing, since that was what had woken him.

"Sakura, you really should stay home if you aren't feeling very good. You don't sound well at now." Kero said, but Sakura just shook off his concern.

"Oh, Kero, I wish I could," Sakura said after she had finally recovered. "I have a huge math test today, and I just can't miss it."

"If you say so..." Kero said, still unconvinced, and went back to sleep.

End Flashback

Sakura recovered, and finally made her way inside. At this point, she knew that she was going to be late, but she didn't let that bother her. She was so used to being late that it was just a common occurrence for her. She walked into the classroom, and to her credit, the teacher wasn't in the room. However, she didn't see Tomoyo. She took her seat in front of Syaoran, and turned back to look at him.

"Where is Tomoyo-chan?" Sakura asked, and at first, he just shrugged, and Sakura thought that he wasn't going to answer, but he finally did.

"A lot of people are out sick today." Syaoran informed her. He looked at her for a moment, and she felt her cheeks color slightly. "You don't look too good yourself."

"I'm perfectly fine!" Sakura pouted, and turned from Syaoran. Why was she so zealous about that when it wasn't even true. The teacher had finally walked in, and she hoped that they would be taking the math test early today, that way, if she was feeling bad at lunch, then she might be able to leave.

Her luck was at least a little good today, since the test was the first thing that was to happen in the class. She took the test from the teacher, and look down at it. The numbers were swimming, and even though she wasn't that good at math, she knew that there was something wrong with that. She closed her eyes for a second, and had to suppress a coughing fit, that, even though it was silent, it shook her shoulders violently. She looked at the paper again, and this time everything was just blurry. She closed her eyes again, and didn't remember anything that happened next.
