Vurso: Um… this is a special installment of Dragon Wings, in two ways. First, that I will be writing this chapter, and others to come until Sera feels up to it… she's just been through something very hard on her, and she doesn't feel much like doing anything right now. Second, I will explain at the end of the chapter. Now, I'm pretty sure that Sera doesn't own Card Captor Sakura, and I sure don't. This chapter is mostly just a bridge between the beginning of the fic, and the part where the action starts (action as in fighting). So, I will just fill it with a little humor, and a bit of Sakura starting to notice just how cute Yue is. Now, on with the fic.
Yue sighed happily and decided to allow himself the luxury of a tiny smile as the cool breeze brushed against his feathers, snapping the flames to new heights. Really, a good flight was doing quite well in the relaxation department. Deciding for once to give in to the little voice of his phoenix side (A/N: Darn you, Dark Moon. STOP GIVING AWAY EVERYTHING!), he suddenly twisted into feats of aerial acrobatics that would make the most agile gymnast, swimmer, etc, turn bright green with envy. He was so absorbed in giving his wings a good workout that he didn't feel the approach of a very familiar girl with a pink aura.
Sakura had been just relaxing, and doing a bit of thermal hopping with the last remaining heat rising from the concrete below, when she noticed what looked like a star trying to catch its own tail. After a quick debate with herself, she spilled air from her wings, and started a shallow glide in the direction of the white, dancing dot. After all, curiosity killed the cat, not the dragon.
Once she got closer, Sakura was able to discern a very familiar white aura. Yue? But why would he be out here at this time of night? Better yet, why would he be out here at this time of night doing acrobatics?
Slowly drifting closer, Sakura examined Yue with eyes developed over thousands of generations to scout the horizon for prey. And the Card Mistress was very surprised at the thoughts drifting through her mind.
Who knew Yue could be so cute… Cute? Yue's not cute… Yeah, you're right, he's downright handsome. Aww, shut up, brain. Make me. Don't make me use Erase to get rid of you. You'll just wipe your entire mind. Shut up. No. Anyways, where was I? Oh yeah. I can't believe you were chasing after Syaoran all that time. Hey! He was sweet! He dumped you because of your dragon heritage. Shut up. Anyways, now Yue… there's a man! And he doesn't think of me as ugly. How can you tell. Dragon Intuition. Dragons don't have intuitions. All right, woman's intuition, then. Are you ever going to leave me alone? No. Now, where was I… oh yeah. Those arms… that chest… those wings… that tail…(Same time) wait… TAIL?????
Sakura made a startled "eep", which made Yue, in turn, whirl about, looking for the source of the danger. Seeing only his Mistress, he relaxed for a second, before tensing up again as he remembered just what form he was in.
They both just hovered there, at a loss for words, when the silence was broken quite nicely by the crash of thunder overhead. In unspoken agreement, they made a beeline for Sakura's house.
Touya grinned in satisfaction as he finished locking every window and door in the house. He whipped out a walkie-talkie, pressed the talk button, and said into it, commando style, "S.A., Kinomoto perimeter is secure, how is your mission proceeding? Over."
Kero's voice blared from the speaker in reply. "Yukito's house is locked up tight, Touya. There's no way they're getting inside."
Excellent…Touya thought, al la Mr. Burns style. They'll just have to work together to find a place to stay that's out of the rain, and that's bound to get them together!!!
Sakura groaned and slumped against the final window of her house. Not one was open…
Yue chose that moment to show up, looking extremely mad.
"Lemme guess. Yukito's house is locked up tight, too?"
Sakura sighed. "Things can't get any worse."
That was when the Irony Gods decided to step in. With a loud crash of thunder, torrents rained down upon the unprotected pair.
Pulling a piece of soaked hair out of his eyes, Yue sighed. "Mistress, I must advise you. Never say things can't get any worse. Because they always will."
Vurso: Okay, that was just a little something to keep everyone going, and I'm sorry that it was so short. I'm really not very good at this writing thing. Anyways, down to business.
Sera asked me to ask people if they would like to be characters in her fic. The first 9 people to post in a review saying so and telling who will get to be in it. But, there are guidelines.
The character will be half phoenix, and the reviewer must choose one of the following abilities for their character. But only one. And please put a back up, incase it's already been taken. The other things the reviewer can and MUST decide are the name of their character (please pick something not silly, because Sera will change it if you just put something to be funny), the personality of their character (will be default if not picked), and the particular markings for their character. The markings and colors can consist of anything.
Here are the abilities to choose from:
Shapeshifting (change from one animal to another)
Extremely good fighting skills
Excellent at any and all sports
Ability to control Fire
Ability to control Water
Ability to control the Earth and Nature
Ability to control Wind
Ability to control Electricity
Please review, with the specifics we asked of you. And this is very important to the plot, so please help us out here.
Now, I gotta go and see if Sera is okay. *Walks out of the room. *
