*~* Epilogue *~*
The Li Clan was confused by the turn of events. Everyone managed to , somehow, get back to the mansion. Syaoran refused to talk to anyone but his immediate family and Sakura, of course. Sanori, Xiefa, the Li sisters, Sakura and Kero all left in one limo.
"I'm not getting this! You're supposed to be dead, Syaoran!" cried Sakura, who was glad to finally be out of that horrible wedding dress. She was back in the clothes she'd came in.
"Would you rather me be dead, sweetheart?" he joked.
Sakura gently punched his arm. "You know what I mean!"
Sanori eyed her son. "Yes . . . what happened?"
"Let me start," said Xiefa. "Well, right after Syaoran was declared 'dead', I realized that it was strange that Syaoran gotten his new skills and still lost. It didn't make sense. So I followed the servants who took Syaoran's body into the shrine, which I thought was pretty weird. It turns out that Syaoran wasn't even dead!"
Sakura gasped. "What? But the guy checked his pulse!"
"I know, but he was working for Alan. You see, Alan slipped Syaoran a drug in his lemonade (A/N: remember that?) and it knocked him out. I guess Alan's plan was to come back to get Syaoran after the wedding and tell him about how he and Sakura were married. It was like the ultimate weapon to use against Syaoran. After that, I suppose he was going to kill Syaoran."
"But," put in Syaoran, "I didn't drink all of the lemonade."
"Yep. And I calculated that he would wake up around eleven in the afternoon. That's where Kero came in."
Kero cleared his throat. "I was to one who set fire to the limos, knocked over the tree, hid the Bible, knocked over the chairs and killed the lights," he said proudly.
"Wow," said Sakura. "Wait a minute! How did you know all about the drug, Xiefa and why didn't you tell me what you'd discovered?"
Xiefa laughed. "Well, it was really a lucky guess. I went and looked at everything he'd eaten that day. He had eaten the same food as everyone else and I learned Sunni had given the food to him. We all know that Sunni would never have drugged Syaoran. Then, when I was snooping around behind the arena, I found a glass of lemonade, half full. I tested it, assuming that it was Syaoran's. There was a special drug in the lemonade, so I used my knowledge about it to decide how long it would take for him to wake up. And I didn't tell you, Sakura, because I knew that you wouldn't be able to keep a secret."
"Oh," muttered Sakura. "I still don't like that." She did all of that in a DAY?
Sanori smiled at her daughter. "Well, Xiefa, you're very smart. You saved the family."
She flushed. "Not just me. Syaoran is the one who destroyed Alan in the first place. And you helped, Mom, by distracting Alan."
Fanren leaned forward. "But how did Syaoran know where we were?"
"Oh! That's simple- I left him a note!"
Everyone sweat dropped.
"Yeah . . . that was simple . . ." muttered Sakura. "Well, I'm just glad that Syaoran saved me from marriage to HIM."
"It was my pleasure!"
Sakura placed her head on Syaoran's shoulder until they made it back to the mansion.
Syaoran and Sakura were granted some time alone together. They walked in they garden, holding hands.
"So," began Syaoran, "Alan didn't hurt you or anything?"
She shook her head. "With Kero causing so much trouble, he didn't have time to bother me. I was thankful for that."
He was quiet a while, then he stopped her and took both of her hands in his. "Y-you still want to marry me, right?"
"Of course! Why wouldn't I?"
Syaoran flushed a bit. "I must say that I'm ashamed of my family right now. The way they acted and all . . . I couldn't blame you if you wanted nothing to do with any Li's."
"You're a good person and so are some of your family members. Like Xiefa, Sunni, your mother Klein . . ."
"Okay . . ."
Sakura frowned. "Wait! You sound hesitant about marrying me."
Syaoran smile reassuringly. "No, I was just thinking about YOUR family. We already have things worked out with mine, but yours . . ."
She giggled. "Dad likes you. Touya will have to deal with it."
Syaoran hugged her. "I know you already have a ring, but there's another one I-"
"Oh, do you mean this one?" She took the emerald ring out of her pocket.
He nodded. "Where'd you get that?"
Sakura flushed guiltily. "When I thought you were dead, I went into your room for a picture and then . . . I went into that chest under your bed."
Syaoran gasped. "YOU WHAT????!!!! You saw all of those pictures? You must think that I was obsessed or something when I was younger . . ."
Sakura laughed. "I thought it was sweet. Besides, I kept pictures of you too."
"Did you? Hmmm, now I don't feel so bad." Syaoran pulled on her hand and began to walk. "Now let's get some food. I'm starving. I haven't eaten for a whole day and then some."
Sakura smiled and follow him into the house.
Author's Note: I will take ideas for it if anyone has any. I might write another fic before I do the sequel. Thanx for reading.
