Hello everybody! This is my first CCS fic so I hope you like it!

And this / " Blah, blah, blah. " / Stands for thoughts.

A / N : This is an AU fic, or Alternate universe fic. This starts during her summer vacation, and she's going to be starting her first year in high school, along with Syaoran, and Tomoyo, etc. , etc. And the characters may act out of character in some places, or all the time, sorry if you don't like AU fics.

Chapter One :
The Arrangement

Normal POV

( Kinomoto Residance )

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

" No! No! No! No! No! " Yelled Sakura, as she shook her head from left to right.

" Err-- Sakura? Umm, I know that was really sudden but... " Fujitaka stuttered.

( I'm only using 'Fujitaka' this once, and from now on I'm going to call him Mr. Kinomoto. )

" It doesn't matter if it's sudden or not! I'm not going to do it! " Shouted Sakura.

Sakura covered her ears with her hands and began running upstairs to her room as she shouted, " Don't bring that up again! "

' Bam! ' Came the noise from Sakura's door being slammed close.

Mr. Kinomoto sighed as he sat down and began rubbing his forehead.

" Nadeshiko, I don't know what to do anymore... " Said Mr. Kinomoto looking at his wife's picture.

( Flashback )

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

" Hey dad, I'm home! " Said Sakura happily, as she came in through the door, taking off her shoes.

" Ah! Sakura, I need to talk to you. It's very important, here, come sit with me. " Said Mr. Kinomoto, sitting on the couch, motioning for Sakura to take a seat next to him.

Sakura took a seat, still smiling happily as she looked at her father, waiting for him to speak.

" Sakura. " Said Mr. Kinomoto in a very serious voice, as he looked at the floor, fidgeting with his fingers.

" Yeah, dad? " Asked Sakura, now a little nervous.

" There's been an arrangement. " Said Mr. Kinomoto.

" What kind of arrangement? " Asked Sakura curiously.

" Well, my friend... " Mr. Kinomoto stopped, searching for the right words.

" Your friend?... " Said Sakura, looking up at her father.

" My very old friend... " Mr. Kinomoto started again.

Sakura watched her father intently as he spoke slowly, and clearly.

" My very old friend, he-- , he's going to die soon, and... And, he asked me for one last favor before he dies. " Said Mr. Kinomoto, suddenly looking up from the floor and at Sakura, with a very deperate look on his face.

" What kind of favor? " Asked Sakura nervously, fearing that the answer may be something she didn't want to hear.

" Well, he asked for, an arranged marriage. " Answered Mr. Kinomoto .

" An arranged marriage? For him? Why? Isn't he going to die soon? " Asked Sakura, frantically wondering why an old man would want an arranged marriage for himself when he's nearing his deathbed.

" No! Not for him. " Said Mr. Kinomoto, sweatdropping at Sakura's outragous conclusion.

"Oh... Then, who is the arranged marriage for? " Asked Sakura.

" Umm... That is... I mean... " Mumbled Mr. Kinomoto.

" Just say it dad. " Stated Sakura, tired of her fathers stuttering.

" Well, it's for his grandson, who is living with him, his parents passed away so he's been living with him ever since. " Explained Mr. Kinomoto.

" Okay, so who is he getting an arranged marriage to? " Asked Sakura, getting impatient with her father.

" That's the thing that's been making me nervous... The thing is, my old friend asked me to make an arranged marriage between his grandson, Syaoran Li , and you, my daughter, Sakura Kinomoto. " Explained Mr. Kinomoto, bracing himself for Sakura's reaction.

" Are you? Are you kidding me! " Shouted Sakura.
