Disclaimer: I do not own Cardcaptor Sakura; it belongs to CLAMP.
Author's Note: I've wanted to write a little something for this couple for a while now, because Sakura and Syaoran have definitely always been my favorite. And I wanted to write something for Christmas, as well. ^^ Happy Holidays, everyone! Hope someone out there enjoys it. =)
"You're going to catch a cold if you stand out here any longer." He threw his jacket over her back, then wrapped his arms around her stomach and rested his chin gingerly on her left shoulder, his warm breath fluttering a few thin wisps of her auburn hair.
She laughed, her emerald eyes lambent in the dim starlight spilling across the frosted grass beneath them like silver thread. "It's never happened before," she reminded him gently, "since you've always been there to keep me warm." She leaned happily into his soft embrace, stifling more mirth as she caught a quick glimpse of the blush spreading across his cheeks. She still loved leaving him flustered, even after all their years together. It never got old.
"What are you doing out here, anyway? Not getting cold feet, are you?" He actually seemed genuinely concerned, his amber eyes suddenly intense.
"Of course not, Syaoran." She seemed shocked he would even consider that the case, appalled. "I was actually thinking about how lucky I am to have you. To have always had you. I never thought it was possible for two people to stay together this long. I almost thought for a while you would give up on me. And we still have our whole future ahead of us." She simpered as relief, and then amusement, filled his face.
"Huh. Way to have faith in me, Sakura," he said, chuckling. "I'd never give you up for anything." He kissed her cheek, relishing their closeness.
She raised an eyebrow, eager to test this theory. She fiddled with the engagement ring on her finger, clinquant in the celestial light. "Not even for the stars?"
"Or the moon, or the whole night sky."
She giggled. "I can't believe you would ever say something so corny. But I love it."
He laughed, blushing again. "See? I even give up my dignity to keep you with me."
She closed her eyes, still smiling. "This is going to be a wonderful Christmas."
He closed his eyes as well, falling easily into the moment. "And an even better marriage."
"Certainly, since you're willing to give up constellations for it."
"Don't forget the moon."
"Right, right." She paused, breathing deeply. "And the whole night sky."
