Summary:She was not important but he was. Sakura was not like the other maids she was more. He never expected to know her but Sakura had a secret that she is very different from others.

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

"Excuse me?" Sakura asked, shocked that he would even think of the words. He smirked at her.

"I make a promise, Sakura Kinomoto. By the end of this year, we will be married. Married and happy." He says and stands up and looks down at her.

"Uh no!" Sakura says and looks at him as though he is crazy. He looks serious. Really serious. Sakura glares at him and avoids looking into his eyes.

She turns and is about to leave when she notices her shoe went flying from her hand. She turns and is about to pick it up when Syaoran grabs it and his trademark smirk is on.

Oh crap, Sakura thought and she tried to grab it from him, but he kept it out of reach.

"Syaoran! Give it back!" Sakura yelled at him. All he did was laugh and he said suddenly, "Only if you'll say you'll marry me!" He said, trademark smirk. She glared at him and she shouted no.

"No? Well then I'll never give it back." He said and he held the shoe above him, it wasn't fair since he was so tall and Sakura, well isn't.

"Alright! I'll marry you." Sakura whispered the last part. He looked surprised but then he smirked.

"I'm sorry, I didn't hear you." Syaoran said, dangling the shoe above him.

Sakura fake smiled and said with her teeth clenched together, "I'll marry you." He smirks and gives Sakura back the shoe.

Once Sakura retrieved her shoe and she put it on, she glared at him and asked, "Where's my ring?"

He smirks and says, "It was all so sudden." Sakura can't help but smile a little and rolled her eyes.

"Good night, Syaoran." She said as she walked away.

"G'night." He says back to the maid, who is now his fiancée. A smirk is seen on his face. This is going to be so much fun, he thinks to himself watching Sakura walk down the hall.

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

It had been two weeks since that weird incident. No one thankfully heard about it. Sakura just went on with her business, pretending it didn't happen.

But whenever she thought of it, she couldn't help but smile. Even though, she believed it meant nothing.

Quietly, Sakura tiptoed to the maid hall. She missed everyone; even if they didn't miss her.

She peeked in and saw everyone talking or just lounging around. But they all seemed so happy.

Sakura slipped inside and made her way around to the other side of the maid hall. She spotted Tomoyo and quickly walked to her, with her head bent.

Tomoyo was sitting on her bed sewing. She seemed depressed. Sakura snuck up behind her and surprised her.

"Tomoyo!" Sakura whispered in her ear. Tomoyo gasped and turned to look at Sakura.

"Sakura?!" She whispered, clearly surprised.

Sakura grinned at her and motioned her to follow her out of maid's hall. Tomoyo listened and followed, saying nothing. Once outside of the castle, Sakura swung around and gave her best friend a hug.

"Oh Tomoyo! I've missed you oh so much!" Sakura cried merrily. But when she didn't feel her friend hug her back, she let go and looked her in the eyes.

"Tomoyo?" Sakura asked. Tomoyo looked at the ground.

"I heard your getting married to our lord – no my lord – Syaoran." Tomoyo whispered, tears forming in her amethyst colored eyes.

"What?!" Sakura shrieked. "How did you find out?" Sakura asked, suddenly feeling like murdering her 'fiancé'.

"It's all around the castle. Also all around this kingdom. And I suppose our neighbor kingdom.

"WHAT?!" Sakura screamed and felt all the blood drain from her body. "I'm going to murder him!" Sakura muttered and suddenly felt like crying.

Tomoyo didn't move and asked suddenly, "So it's true…" Sakura looked at Tomoyo.

Oh crap, Sakura thought. I forgot about that 'incident'!

Tomoyo began to cry and yelled, "Some friend you are!" Then went running back to the direction of maid hall.

"Tomoyo! Wait!" Sakura yelled. But Tomoyo continued to run away from Sakura. Tears pricked Sakura's eyes but she viscously wiped the away.

She blindly stumbled back to the west wing. She bumped into many maids and all asked if she was engaged to Syaoran.

"No!" Sakura shouted at all of them that asked. But the last girl she bumped into, a feeling, not sure if it's good or bad, rain through her body.

"Hi! Are you engaged to Li Syaoran?" A woman, Sakura never meet before, asked her. She had long curly black hair, bright red eyes, and the fairest skin she has ever seen. She wore a big fancy dress, all gold.

Sakura was taken aback but instead of shouting no, she paused and smiled at the woman. "Well, Miss, I actually am engaged to him." At first the woman looked completely surprised then laughed gently.

"Oh. Well it's nice to meet my rival." She said that and flipped her hair. She walked by her, laughing.

Sakura stared after her and felt like screaming at her. What does she mean by rival?! Sakura thought. No way am I going to compete against her! I'll surely loose.

Feeling depressed and in low spirits, Sakura walked to her room and fell on the bed. She looked up at the ceiling and closed my eyes, tears slipping down her cheeks.

Sakura felt the bed go low and my eyes opened, alarmed. Syaoran looked at her, worry written in his eyes. They just stared at each other. No one makes a move until Sakura started feeling uncomfortable… as though he could see right through her and see the real her.

"Syaoran…" She whispered then sat up. They were inches apart and Sakura felt her cheeks grow hot. But now's not the time to go all attraction on me. Sakura thought to herself.

"Syaoran, you told everyone that I'm supposedly 'engaged' to you!" She said glaring at his handsome face. He raised his eyebrow.

"I did?" He asked interested. Sakura looked at him as though to say don't be stupid!

"Uh ya!" She said rudely. Then he looked slightly hurt then masked it quickly.

"Well I didn't." He said and stood up.

"I don't believe you!" Sakura screamed at him. But he ignored her and kept walking.

"Tomoyo won't talk to me because I'm engaged to you!" Sakura cried. Tears anew streamed down her cheeks.

Syaoran held his ground and then turned around.

"There's nothing I can do about that, can I?" He asked, mad. Sakura glared at him, and then sighed deeply.

"I guess not." She muttered to herself. Syaoran walked up to her and lifted her head until it was in level with his.

"I truly wouldn't do something that hurt you so much, Sakura." He said, leaning in closer.

Sakura felt her cheeks flame up again and she wanted to step back, but the bed post was in her way.

"Syaoran…" Sakura mumbled in warning but came out like a sigh. He smirked and moved an inch closer and their lips touched lightly. He advanced when Sakura didn't move away. He smiled in their kiss and deepened it.

Sakura felt her arms wrapping around his neck. What in the world am I doing?! Sakura asked herself in her thoughts. His arms wrapped around her waist which caused the kiss to deepen slightly more.

Even though Sakura wanted to murder this guy, she seemed to fall under his trap over and over. No more. Sakura thought to herself.

With her remaining senses, she pushed Syaoran lightly away from her. He looked confused but then his trademark smirk appeared.

"Take your time." He whispered in her ear. He moved away and walked to the door.

"Syaoran…" Sakura called to him. He paused and turned to her.

"Yes?" He asked. Now that Sakura was looking at him, he looked super hot! Sakura felt herself blush again but she covered herself by turning around.

"Um… Nothing!" Sakura answered. Syaoran smirked (again) then closed the door behind him.

"Oh crap!" Sakura breathed out. I'm becoming, Sakura thought to herself. More and more attracted to that… jerk!

"My, what a steamy kiss!" A voice said behind Sakura. Suddenly the lights turned off and Sakura whipped around.

"Who's there?" Sakura asked, trying to feel her way around.

"Boo."

A scream from the high heavens was heard and Syaoran turned around and suddenly Sakura entered his mind. You would never see a human man run so fast.
