Summary: I had known her just about all my life. But there wasn't any real serious connection. Just the frequent hello, good evening, goodbye took place that I never returned. I never stopped to think about her really. I always thought she was just like everyone else out there. I was wrong though. She isn't like everyone else.
Disclaimer: I do not own CCS or anything like it. I only own this plot. I also do not own the song "Time of Your Life" by Green Day.
Notes: So here's the epilogue, although a very short epilogue, it's an epilogueeveryone. I decided to put it up a bit earlier so I can get my new fiction out. I'm not too sure what I'm going to call it yet, but I'm also currently looking for a beta-reader. So please let me know if you're interested by leaving your e-mail so I can get back to you and let you know if I need you :) Well, enjoy the epilogue and don't forget to drop me a review. Thanks!
Sakura died upon impact. The time after that point passed by me like a blur… I hardly remember anything past the time I saw her crushed and broken on the road. The truck driver hadn't even stopped to see what he had hit, and I was too grief stricken to take note of the licence plate number.
Meiling and Tomoyo never spoke to me again. Neither did Eriol. Tai and I lost touch a little bit into our first year of university. I married and produced an heir, a son, for the sake of the Li Clan. I admit, I did fall in love with my wife that the Elders had betrothed me to, but no one ever held a place in my heart like her. She was, after all, the one who got away.
My wife knew my story and she understood, being the caring woman that she was. Maybe that was why I loved her. She accepted me for who I was and that came along with faults. My son never really liked me since in his eyes I was never faithful to my wife, always longing for another woman. But eventually, when he had his own children, he came around as we got to know each other better.
I often sit here in my chair that overlooks the ocean and think… what if I hadn't been so cold and heartless? Would I still have given her a second look? Would I have even known her? Would I have loved her? Would I have lost her?
Would Eriol, Tomoyo, Meiling, Tai and I still be friends up to this day? Would we be laughing, old and wrinkling together, like we always said we would?
Would I have isolated myself for years? Would I have continued to be so cold and heartless for so many years? Would I have always drowned myself in my work when I was in my youth when I should have been raising a family?
How different would things have been?
William Shakespeare once said that it was better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all.
I would have to say I strongly disagree.
