A pet project that I've been working on for a few weeks. After reading the chapter where Sakura captured the Illusion Card in the manga, this little idea struck me and wouldn't leave. It's different to what I've done before (since I'm going to try to keep Syaoran as the main character instead of Sakura), so I hope I can pull it off. I hope you enjoy!

Summary: "It takes a special kind of person to see through deception and discover the truth. Spells, curses, to make one unseen. Unheard. Unknown to the outside world. Sometimes," she paused, "being invisible isn't all it's cracked up to be."

Beep… beep… beep… beep…

The hospital's monitors sounded each and every heartbeat that managed to pump its way through her chest as she lay there, cold and lifeless. Eyes closed, mouth open, tubes going in and out of her body; she looked like some kind of freakish science experiment gone wrong. Skin pale, hair frayed and brittle, chest rising and falling under the blankets; the father that kept a lonely vigil at her bedside long dead.

Beep… beep… beep… beep…

The nursing home's cream curtains did not block out the afternoon sunlight; it spilled in through the window and hit the linoleum floor, bouncing around the walls. The twittering of the nurse as she went through the daily routine; washing her body from top to toe, changing her clothes, changing the blankets, changing the IV drip in her arm.

Beep… beep… beep… beep…

"And how are we today, dear?" She chatted as she fluttered about the room. "Your PET scan threw us quite the little mystery yesterday, you know. In a coma for ten years, and still having a fully functional brain? It's quite the miracle you're still breathing on your own. The doctors at the hospital aren't quite sure what to do with you. But so long as you keep dreaming, you'll be alright." She finished putting the last of the blankets away.

Beep… beep… beep… beep…

The nurse left the room, oblivious to the girl who stood outside in the hall; in fact, no one had ever noticed her before. Standing still as passers by walked right past her, the girl watched sadly, feeling nothing; the numbness of her body matched only by the longing in her heart.

Beep… beep… beep… beep…

She felt the tug of the curse on her spirit. It was time to leave again. Grimacing as the spell took her from her post, awareness slipping from her grasp as the darkness reached her, she swore. In the endless abyss, all she could hear was the beeping of the monitor; sounding the beating of her own heart.

Beep… beep… beep… beep…

Prologue equals finished.

We'll just go where this story takes us, yeah? I know the ending that I want, but half the fun is getting there.

Geez, does anyone actually read these notes, or should I just stop wasting time trying to think of what to say? Lol.

Until next time!
