Vurso: This is our first Card Captor Sakura fanfic.
Firethroat: So please don't flame us.
Me: None of us own Card Captor Sakura.
Firethroat: This is a Yue/Sakura story, so I suggest that if you don't like that pairing, back out now.
Vurso: Oh, and if you're an author here, please check out Sera's post, called "Do you want your fics MSTed" for the obvious reason, if you do.
Me: And this fic is a bit different from the others out there. You'll see why.
Firethroat: Now that the pleasantries are over, on with the fic.
Emerald eyes watched the moon sadly, as the owner of the eyes tried to hide the tears slowly trickling down her face. Her older brother put a comforting leathery wing around her.
"It's okay, Sakura. I always knew that gaki was no good. If he can't accept who you really are, then he doesn't deserve you." Touya said, for once trying to comfort his little sister, who he often thought of as still a hatchling.
"I know, Touya." Sakura sniffled. "But that doesn't stop it from hurting."
"I know." Touya said, his scaled ears drooping. "I know."
"Sakura, what's wrong?" Kero's voice called from the open window. The little guardian beast looked out to see his mistress and her older brother sitting on the roof, the moonlight shining gently down on them. What he didn't expect to see, though, were the scales that covered the backs of their arms and outside of their legs, the claws coming from the ends of their toes and fingers, or the long, powerful, coiled tails. He also didn't expect the large leathery-looking dragon wings folded on their back, or the ears that resembled those of a scaled donkey (A/N: Just think donkey ears, covered in scales) sticking up through their hair. Scales apparently covered their backs, and the scales started on the tips of their noses, running up over their forehead, through their hair (he could see the scales sticking up through their hair), and down the backs of their necks.
"Sakura? Touya?" Kero's jaw dropped, and he just stared. He then recovered his compose somewhat, and asked, "WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO YOU?"
Sakura sighed. "I'm sorry I didn't tell you, Kero. We're kinda like werewolves, only with dragon in place of the wolf. Also, we can change at any time we wish."
Kero flew over to inspect Sakura. After checking to make sure that she was actually okay physically, he asked, "Why didn't you tell me and Yue? We're your guardians, and this is the kind of the that we need to know."
Sakura put up her hand for Kero to sit in, and, after he made himself comfortable, she said, "I didn't think that anyone outside the family should know. I also guess I was just afraid to tell you."
Kero nodded in understanding. "Still, you should have told us."
Sakura looked down sadly. "I know. And I'm sorry for not telling you."
Kero smiled. "I guess I can forgive you… if you get me some of that pudding in the fridge." This earned a tiny smile from his mistress, which soon turned to a look of pain. She put Kero down, got up, and walked to the edge of the roof, where she sat down. She curled her tail around herself, and drew her wings tightly around her.
"What's with her?" Kero asked Touya.
The young Were-Dragon scowled. "Sakura decided to show the gaki what she really was, and he freaked. He told her that he didn't want to go out with her, and that he now hated her." Kero decided that he could make a better show of anger in his true form, and transformed.
Cerberus's lips were drawn back from his teeth in a snarl as his wings parted, revealing the large mane-less lion. "I knew that brat was no good!" His voice held a tone of underlying thunder that implied that if he ever met Syaoran in that form, the boy would be lucky to escape with his life. The look on Touya's face implied the same thing.
Cerberus's ears perked up at a tiny sound, and he turned to look at the tiny figure that was Sakura. When he noticed that she was shaking with sobbing, his expression softened. He quickly sent a short telepathic message to his brother, Yue, and walked over to Sakura, then sat down. He hesitantly put a large, gentle paw on her back, and pulled her close, so that she was crying into the fur on his chest. She clutched his fur in her hands, and merely started crying harder. Cerberus lowered his large, heavy head, and gently licked the top of Sakura's head with his rough tongue. A paternal instinct that Cerberus didn't even know he had came over him, and he protectively wrapped his wings about the crying girl.
It didn't take long for Yue to arrive, although he looked angry at having been woken up. Kero gave him a warning look that clearly said "Be nice." before he unwrapped his wings. Sakura's wings were again folded on her back, so that Yue got a good look at the one he was sworn to protect and obey. His eyes widened, and he looked at Cerberus with a look that could only be described as confusion. Cerberus explained about Sakura's dragon attributes, and why she was crying. Yue's eyes narrowed in fury, and he looked read to go find Syaoran and pound him to a pulp that instant. A warning look from Cerberus, and another sight of his crying mistress, cooled his anger somewhat, though.
In a very unusual move for him, Yue hesitantly knelt down, and pulled Sakura into a tight, comforting hug. He rubbed her back gently, and placed his head on hers. Soft murmuring indicated to Cerberus and Touya that he was trying to comfort Sakura. Cerberus lay down, so that his body was lightly touching that of his mistress.
Finally, Sakura's tears faded, and she fell into an exhausted sleep. Yue gently picked her up, and walked along the roof to the open window. He carefully went inside, and lay the young girl on her bed. He pulled the covers over her, and his fingers lingered lightly on her cheek. The moon shone on a face that was filled with sadness and longing.
From the window, Touya and Cerberus watched as Yue gently tucked in Sakura. They crept away after a few moments, and sat down at the far edge of the roof.
Touya spoke first. "Did you see the way he was looking at my sister?"
Cerberus nodded. "Yes. And it gives me an idea."
A small smile formed on the lion's face. "What's the fastest way to get over a love?"
After a few moments, a smile slowly crept across Touya's face. "To fall in love with someone else."
"Exactly. We both can tell that Yue likes Sakura, even though he would never tell her, and Sakura likes Yue well enough. Even so, it would take both of us to get them together, as they're both so clueless. So what do you say? Partners?" Cerberus extended a paw towards Touya.
Touya clasped Cerberus's paw in his own clawed hand. "Partners."
Firethroat: You're evil.
Vurso: Very evil.
Me: ^_^ I know.
Vurso: Anyways, now that you've read, please review and tell us how you liked it, and what you think should happen.
Me: Although please don't say to make it an S&S.
Firethroat: And please read Sera's post about the MSTing thing.
Vurso: And please don't flame. We don't go around flaming your stories, so please don't flame ours.
Me: Thanks for reading, everybody. Sorry for it being so short, but I had to introduce the situation, first.
