Hey people, assume that for whatever reason, Sakura has just run into clone Syaoran and is alone. Remember, spoilers for after chapter 125, so the Syaoran we know is now just a heartless being. First genuine attempt at something sad, so if it's not that touching, well, screw me.

Jade met amber and sapphire.

A tear rolled down Sakura's cheek as she recalled the times she had spent with him. Those tender, protective looks he had given her, the sweet blush that ran across his cheeks when they were together alone, Sakura realized how much she loved to see him like that.

Nothing like the passive, emotionless expression that was on his face now.

"Syaoran-kun," she said softly, her fingers reaching out to touch his cheek, almost pleadingly. Syaoran didn't react as she gently caressed his skin. The princess of Clow barely registered the fact that his clothing was stained with old blood when he flourished his cape open, releasing…

Sakura's hands flew to her mouth, but she couldn't stifle the horrified, strangled gasp that escaped her lips. Several dozen of her feathers floated in the air, shimmering their glow. One by one, a feather drifted towards her chest, reuniting with her.

For every beautiful, happy memory that pieced together in her mind, a piece of great sorrow took its place in her heart.

…"Thank you so much for the apples!"…

So many feathers…

…"Onii-sama! I am not a monster!"…

…you must have gone to so many worlds…

…"Yukito-san, you play instruments so well"…

…you must have destroyed so many lives…

…"Did your trip go well, Father?"…

…now that you don't have your heart anymore…

…"I want to go to the ruins"…

…even though you're returning my feathers to me…

…"Promise you'll stay here with me?"…

…you're not doing it for my sake…

…"Just call me Sakura, and I can call you-"

…and that's why it hurts so much.

"Syaoran," she whispered, fighting to keep her diminishing consciousness as more tears leaked from her eyes. "Please…don't leave me…"

The moment the last feather was warped into her chest, a dark portal appeared in thin air, and Syaoran stepped into it, not turning back to face her. Just before Sakura thudded to the ground, one final thought reigned.

She'd rather have Syaoran back than her memories.
