So here is the next chapter.

Enjoy:)

Summary: When Sakura's mother got a promotion, they move to a big city. Now Sakura is going to a school for Geniuses. But there's one little thing weirder than her new school… Her 2-year older teacher! So Sakura is writing about her life with her new teacher.

Chapter 8: Mistake on Their Part

Hi Diary! I am so happy! But when I write this I know, my happiness will shatter. I bet your wondering what's wrong.

Let's go into the story, "Safe Keeping".

Yours truly,

Sakura

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

I finished reading the whole book during the weekend. It was horrible! The 'No one shall fall in love with their teachers or student' crap, was at least half of the book! It gave some stupid story about the student falling in love with the teacher and eventually the teacher fell in love with the student. Then it was terror as the book says. He left the student for his wife (He already had), and since he broke her heart, she committed suicide.

The whole section was about that story and how there will be consequences if you fall in love.

But it's not fair! You can't control yourself! I looked at my hand and felt the warmth from Syaoran's chest. I closed my eyes and at least tried to imagine his warmth. I got up from my bed and went to the window, where I could see the huge house in front of me.

I sighed and opened the window. "Syaoran…" I whispered to the cool air. The cold air whipped me on my face and I cringed slightly.

"Sakura! Are you up? It's time for school!" I turned around to see my mom standing at my doorway. "It's cold. Close the window. Get dressed." Mom said crossly. I looked at her surprised. "Get moving!" Mom barked as she walked down the stairs. I rolled my eyes. She's in a mood.

I got dressed in the maroon colored uniform and brushed my long hair. I slipped on the knee high socks and put on the shoes. Lastly, I put on my… hat. I sighed as I looked at my reflection.

I went downstairs to see mom looking stressed out. I wanted to go hug her, but she seemed off limits at the moment.

"Hi, mommy!" I said cheerfully. Mom glanced up at me and said quietly, "Go to school. I won't be home when you come back. Syaoran will come at four, I assume. Ask him." Mom waved me off with her hand. I looked shocked. How am I going to school? But mom ignored me and then hissed at me, "LEAVE!"

I ran for the door. I grabbed my stuff and opened the door. I slammed it shut and felt tears fall from my eyes. I quickly whipped them away. I really have no idea where I'm going.

I look around at my surroundings and try to remember where mother drove me. I bit my lip and began to get nervous.

"Sakura Kinomoto!" I hear a female voice and I turn around to see, Tomoyo walking toward me. I flush as I wave to her. "Morning, Tomoyo!" I said with a small smile. "Good morning, Sakura. How are you feeling?" She asked with concern. I said fine and we began to walk together to school.

"Sakura, did you read the rule book?" Tomoyo asked once we reached the school. I nodded and decided against to tell her how stupid it was. "Good!" She cooed. We both reached the classroom and sat down in our seats.

"But Tomoyo, why was there this huge part about the no falling in love?" I saw Tomoyo stiffen and look down. "I feel they thought it would be bad… to…. to… fall in love. So what can we do?" I could tell Tomoyo didn't like the rule either. I took a good look at her before saying, "You're in love with a teacher aren't you?" I asked quietly.

Tomoyo looked really white. She looked like she was holding her breath, but her chest was moving. She looked at me and I could see her eyes becoming teary. I took hold of her hand and held tight.

"Me too. I think I have, too." I whispered as I felt tears brim my eyes and fell without warning.

Tomoyo smiled at me and then her happy composure returned. The door slid open and everyone stood up. We said the rule again and were given permission to sit back down. Sensei Karin left and Syaoran was stayed. He stood behind the desk and said, "I am going to take roll. But first, please let me introduce my assistant teacher today." I glanced over to Tomoyo and she became stiff again.

"We've had him before, Sensei Eriol." A young man walked in with a slight smile. "Good morning, students." He said with a charming smile. I saw Tomoyo blush slightly and she looked down.

"Alright students listen up!" Syaoran began the attendance. Before we knew it, Tomoyo was up. "Tomoyo Daidouji?" He called.

Tomoyo looked up and said quietly, "Here." Eriol looked over at Tomoyo. His eyes seemed to bore into her. She looked down and avoided looking at him completely.

"Sakura Kinomoto?" I was spaced out, but I still heard my name being called. "Here." I said as I glanced over to Tomoyo. She had a small smile on her face.

Despite all of the thick dense air, the class was in a good mood. We were partnered up for some MAGIC project.

The MAGIC project is about girls making a story. Someone has to be the main character and the supporting characters. We (well really Rika) picked out a piece of paper from a hat. The hat held all the genres we could do.

Rika unfolded the paper and a blush formed on her cheeks. She said quietly, "Romance." All the girls began to giggle. Tomoyo just smiled and I sighed lightly.

"Also it has to make people cry." Rika said gently.

Diary, you should have seen those girls! It looked like they just won the lottery.

"I vote Rika to be the main character." Chiharu said with a smile. Rika blushed but declined.

"I've been the main character for two years. Why don't we have Sakura?" Rika replied with a sly smile.

"No! I can't act for beans!" I bellowed. All the girls looked at me with a crazed look in their eyes.

"That's even better!" Naoko cried. I looked perplexed.

"How is that 'even better'?" I asked.

Naoko just smirked. "You'll see. You'll see." The girls laughed evilly and grabbed my arm.

Chiharu yelled, "Sakura you're going to make a beautiful main character! It's exactly what you need to become known in this school! I'm so excited!"

Naoko grinned. "I agree! Then all the boys will be after you when were done with you!"

"Hu?!" I asked. Only Tomoyo nodded her head sympathetically.

As Naoko spoke in a whisper to everyone, I zoned out and stared out the window.

Do I like Syaoran? Can I still call him Syaoran since he dismissed me last night? Why am I thinking about this now out of all the other times? What's wrong with me?

"SAKURA!" A voice boomed from behind me. I snapped out of my thoughts and turned around. I gulped.

Syaoran looked mad as he showed me a piece of paper. I looked at him for a moment questionably.

"Please Kinomoto, explain this picture." I looked at the picture and gasped. A huge blush formed on my cheeks.

"I- I don't know! I've never seen it before in my life!" I said as I put my hands over my eyes.

"Oh really? Well then let's go to the principle's office. NOW!" Syaoran boomed.

I hurried along out of the room, glancing at Tomoyo. She had a sick look on her face. I suddenly noticed why…

Before I could comprehend what happened, I fell forward and I looked around dazed. Until I looked up. Someone was on top of me. Not just anybody but… Syaoran.

I pushed him off and stood abruptly. He quickly scurried up from the floor and sent me a death glare.

"I'm sorry." I mumbled. He just pushed me out of the room. In no time I was in the Principle's office.

I sat in the same chair I did before. And Sensei Karin sighed. "Your in trouble again, Kinomoto- San? What is it this time?"

Syaoran showed her the piece of paper. She blushed and pushed it away.

"Kinomoto- san! I never thought… What went through your mind?!" Sensei Karin yelled.

I shifted uncomfortably. "I… I didn't do it." I said quietly. Sensei Karin frowned.

"Is it because… you don't like Sensei Li?" She asked.

I hesitated before saying more firmly, "I hate my life. I didn't want to come to this school, but my mother begged me. I didn't want to move form my house to here! I was very happy in Tomoeda! Well sort of… I just didn't want to move away from my dad…" I stopped suddenly noticing I was off topic.

I swallowed and said surely, "I did not draw that perverted picture. I don't draw like that. I draw like this." I took a piece of paper and pencil and began to draw non-stop.

Sensei Karin leaned forward to see. I was drawing a little girl, with small pintails and she was smiling as she ran forward. I could see the image too clearly in my head.

"Oh my!" Sensei Karin cried. My drawing was nothing like the other picture. Syaoran leaned forward and I could see form the corner of my eye that he was slightly blushing. But why would he be blushing?

"Well Kinomoto- san. I suppose you can't draw such a picture when you…" She trailed of as she noticed I was almost done with the picture.

The pencil made a perfect circle then I erased half of the circle. "There." I finished.

I had drawn myself running to my father who had on a suit and was kneeling down on the floor with his arms wide open. But I also drew a little boy in the background. I hadn't seen the face before so his hair was covering it.

"Alright. You're dismissed. And Li? Stay here." I quietly left, leaving the portrait behind as well.

I breathed out and before I knew it, the day was over. I found Tomoyo and asked her about the play we're doing but she dismissed it with a smile.

"Oh." Is all I could say. Tomoyo giggled and said gently, "Don't worry. You'll get used to it in no time." I sighed and doubted it, but said nothing.

"Hey… Want to come over?" I asked Tomoyo. Totally forgetting, Syaoran was supposed to be coming. Tomoyo smiled but declined.

"I'm sorry. I'm supposed to meet Chiharu and Naoko at the bookstore. Hey! Why don't you come? It'll be loads of fun!" Tomoyo said taking hold of my arm.

"Um… Ok." I agreed and she dragged me half way across town and I prayed I would be able to find my way back home.

We spent hours going from store to store. Chiharu, Naoko, and Tomoyo were so much fun! Even though I wasn't supposed to have a cookie because of its 7 grams thing, I had one thinking I deserved it.

-------

"OMG! What time is it?" I shrieked when I saw there was no more sun in the sky. Naoko looked at her watch and said, "It's 9:30." I gasped and stood up making the chair go flying backwards.

"I have to go! My mom must be worried sick! She's going to kill me!" I yelled and a flashback from this morning came and I felt like I didn't want to go home. Then I thought how she'll kill me and it made me want to scream with fear.

"Oh dear. Why don't you go and call a taxi? They know a whole lot of shortcuts." Chiharu said and lent me her cell. I stared at the foreign thing in my hand. (I know, diary, I was weird. My mom was the only one in the whole family who has a cell phone. Besides my brother.)

"Here let me call!" Chiharu said and pressed a billion numbers before she spoke twenty words per minute. Sakura stared bewildered at her but Naoko laughed at Chiharu and she threatened Naoko with her fists.

"Ok their on there way." Chiharu said and flashed a smile at me. "Thanks." I said and she beamed at me.

"Sakura!?" An unfamiliar voice shouted at the girls. I turned around and stared at a man or young man. He was H-O-T! He had dark black hair that fell in soft locks over his sea blue eyes, his skin looked soft and untainted, and his lips ready to perk up. I felt my cheeks flame up. No way! Is this guy really talking to me? Who is he anyway?

"It is you! It's me! It's me Nicolas. Remember your American cousin?" I felt all the air leave my lungs. No way! I felt my mouth go dry.

"Nicky?" I asked hoarsely. He nodded and took me in a big hug. Maybe a little too close of a hug. I blush pure red and suddenly remembered I had people in staring at me.

I pull out of the hug and Nicolas looks sorta sad. This is my cousin? He seems totally different from the little boy that was as annoying as a little brat; which he was.

"W-what are you doing here?" I asked finally finding my voice and glancing back at the three who were staring, wide eyed at us.

"Coming to visit you, of course! We'll have a lot of fun! Oh I'm here with grandma and grandpa." As soon as the words left his hot lips (which I shouldn't be thinking of hot, but hey I could… Well I could marry him. It's actually slightly normal to marry cousins here… I guess. Anyways…) dread filled me up like you fill up a cup.

"OMG! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I screamed and I knew this was not going to be a great experience here at Tokyo; no matter what my brother says; this is the worst thing ever!
