Chapter One: Moonlit Nightmares
"Give me the cards."
"No! I promised Yue-san and Kero-chan that I would protect the cards!"
"So loyal, even to the dead."
There was a dim light somewhere in the distance that fell on two inert figures covered in blood.
What Sakura saw in front of her frightened her. Both Yue and Cerberus were lying inert with empty eyes that were staring into the nothingness that now faced them.
"Wake up! Please wake up, Kero-chan, Yue-san!"
"They can't wake they're dead, and you'll be joining the shortly, young one."
"You'll be reunited with your dear friends soon enough young one, so don't worry."
"No! This isn't happening; Kero-chan and Yue-san are still alive. This is just a dream; everything is going to be alright."
"I'm afraid not young one, good night."
A young girl's scream resonated through the house waking one of the people inhabiting it.
"Sakura," Yue called as he ran into the girl's room, "What's worng?"
"Yue-san," Sakura muttered as she opened her eyes, "You're alive!" She yelled as she threw her arms around Yue's neck and burst into tears.
"N-nani?" Yue said trying to pry the sobbing teenage off his neck.
"Where's Kero-chan?" Sakura asked on the verge of hysteria, "Is he alright?"
"Shhh, it's alright," Yue said stroking Sakura's hair, "My brother is still sound asleep." Yue gently placed Sakura back in her bed, "Don't worry it was just a nightmare."
"No, it's not alright Yue-san," Sakura cried, "I'm scared."
"It will be alright," Yue said gently, "Don't worry, just try to fall back to sleep. It's late and you need your sleep." Yue turned to leave, gasped and fell to his knees.
"Are you alright Yue-san?" Sakura asked as she got out of bed to aid Yue, "You're still weak aren't you?"
"It's almost the new moon," Yue muttered as he put his hand to his forehead, "My powers are low right now."
"Was separating you from Yukito-san a bad idea?" Sakura asked.
"No, it wasn't Sakura," Yue said as he slowly stood up, "Don't worry about me I'm fine."
"Good night Yue-san." Sakura said as she got back in bed.
"Good night Sakura." Yue said as he left the room.
Yue slowly walked out of Sakura's bedroom the decrease in his power was making him slightly dizzy. Normally if he got like this he would be forced to change back into his temporary form. However he no longer had a temporary form and he had to get used to the strain of maintaining his true form. He figured if he could sleep for about a day he would be fine.
"Nanda?" He answered turning around.
"What was that all about?" Cerberus asked
"She had a nightmare." Yue answered his dizziness was slowly intensifying.
"Is she alright?" Cerberus asked.
"She's fine." Yue muttered, his vision was beginning to dull. He then staggered a bit, walked into a wall and fell to his knees again.
"Hey are you alright?" Cerberus asked as he flew closer to his brother.
"I'm fine," Yue muttered his vision still dull, "it is two days until the new moon."
"This will be your first new moon without a temporary form to hide in," Cerberus said as Yue slowly stood up, bracing himself against the door frame to his bedroom. "And you still have to get used to maintainig that form constantly."
"Is anything wrong?"
Both guardians turned around to see Sakura's father standing in the doorway.
"Sorry," Yue muttered stilling holding on to the door frame for support, "Did we wake you?"
"No," Fugitaka answered as he approached the guardians, "I was preparing for a presentation when I heard Sakura-san scream, is she alright."
"She had a nightmare," Yue answered his vision was beginning to dull again, "she should be asleep now." Yue felt his grip slowly relax and he fell backwards, barely conscious.
Cerberus saw his brother fall in slow motion, and he made a swift move towards Yue but Fugitaka got there first.
"Are you alright?" Fugitaka asked as he held the semi-conscious Yue in a half standing half reclining position.
Yue opened his eyes only to find it made is head spin more, "I'll be alright." He lied.
"Are you sure, you don't look well," Fugitaka said as he slowly guided Yue over to his bed. "You shouldn't push yourself."
"There are two days until the new moon," Yue muttered, "My powers are weak. This is just a side effect, normally I would stay in my temporary form until the third day after the new moon passes. Anyway Sakura needed help…I could not ignore that."
"Cerberus could have helped Sakura-san," Fugitaka said softly, "you really need to rest for a while."
Yue just nodded and fell asleep.
"He'll be out for at least a day," Cerberus said, "You do know that."
"Yes I do," Fugitaka said with a smile, "I'll need you to watch both of them, Cerberus."
"I was planning on doing so," Cerberus answered, "I'm worried about my younger brother."
"He'll be fine," Fugitaka said, "and I want you to switch off Sakura-san's alarm clock she deservers a break."
Cerberus was left floating in front of Yue's bed completely confused, "You are just like Clow."
It was dark, too dark even for his liking considering darkness was his aspect. He looked around and saw a teenager with shoulder length reddish-brown hair.
The girl didn't answer perhaps it wasn't Sakura after all, but it had to be her. She was holding the pink, gold and silver star wand.
"What's the matter, Sakura?" He called as he went to move towards the girl, only to find that he was unable to.
"What's wrong," The girl said, "Can't move?"
"What the hell is going on here?" He yelled his anger getting the best of him.
"Temper, temper," She said, "Its impolite to swear in front of a girl."
"I don't care!" He yelled.
"You will care," She said darkly, "Fiery!"
He tried to recoil only to find that he still could not move. He knew if Fiery got him, he would be in serious trouble. Before he could to anything to brace himself, the sun ruled card was all over him, burning every inch of his skin. He could hear laughter and he screamed in pain. He could also hear someone calling his name in a panic stricken voice. 'the heat is getting to me, I won't last much longer.' He thought as the voice continued to call his name, 'Oniisan...help me...' Then Fiery retreated as he heard the girl call upon another card. Finally he was able to move and he collapsed too weak and sick to move, he was going to die there alone.
Once again the silence of the Kinomoto house was broken by a person screaming in their sleep.
"Yue-san!" Sakura called as she got out of bed and ran into the next room, "Yue-san wake up." She began nudging his arm only to find that she could feel his skin burning through his robes. "Yue-san are you sick?" She asked only to find that Yue was unresponsive. "Yue-san what's wrong?"
"Sakura-san?" Fugitaka asked as he approached the bed.
"Otou-san, I don't know what's wrong," Sakura said as tears filled her eyes, "He's burning with fever and he won't wake."
"I have already been informed." He said as he placed his hand on Yue's clammy forehead. Immediately Yue's breathing eased and his skin cooled. "He should be fine now. You should get back to bed."
"What was wrong with him?" Sakura asked as she got up to leave the room.
"I believe he was having a nightmare," Fugitaka answered, "and I also believe that he has been pushing himself too hard lately. Don't worry he'll be fine."
"I hope so." Sakura answered as she took one last look at Yue who was now sleeping peacefully, his dreams undisturbed. "I'm going to stay in here with him."
"No Sakura-san," Fugitaka said, "You need your rest. I think it would best if Cerberus watched Yue for the rest of the night."
"Demo…" Sakura said.
"Don't worry Sakura," Cerberus said, "I'll come and wake you if something happens, okay? Now get to bed."
"Alright I will." Sakura said as she walked out of the room.
Cerberus looked down at his sleeping brother and sighed, "You do know that I hate to see you like this."
