Hi! Since The Chosen Mistress is going to finish in the next chapter, I have decided to try out on a new fic. I think this story might not be original. Maybe someone had done something similar before but I'm not very sure. If you own any story which plot is similar to this, email me and I'll remove it if you want me to. I hope this will not happen though.

About this story: Syaoran and Sakura are best friends. Eriol is also with them.

Syaoran agreed and they were doing on quite well until Syaoran began to see Sakura in a new light. He started falling for Sakura but how could he convinced her that he is the right guy for her when he she had her heart and mind set on Yazumi? Read on to find out.

Chapter 1: Sakura's Crush

In the classroom,

"Ohayo, Syaoran-kun," Sakura greeted as she entered the classroom in the morning.

"Ohayo," Syaoran grumbled. He was already at his seat and was now scowling at the desk.

Sakura smiled at his disgruntled attitude. "Messy break-up again?" she asked shrewdly.

He looked at her in surprise. "How do you know?" he asked.

"Woman's intuition," Sakura quipped. Syaoran smiled at her attempt to lighten his mood. "You always have this kind of look everytime you break-up with a girl," Sakura explained. "Also, today is the 31 of January and you always change your girlfriend at the end of every month," she added teasingly.

"You know me too well, don't you?" Syaoran said, shaking his head.

Sakura sat at her seat and turned back to him. "So what happened?" she asked.

"She's getting too clingy and its boring me," he explained.

"Just like all other girls," Sakura said sympathetically. Her friend did seem to have rotten luck when it comes to relationship. He could never settle with just one girl.

"And she got this funny voice that makes me feel as if you have just scratched the blackboard with your nail," he added.

"You don't seem to feel that way in the beginning of the month," Sakura pointed out. Syaoran just grunted in response. "So, who's going to be your February girlfriend?" she asked.

Syaoran sighed. "I'm taking a break from all girls. There will be no girlfriend this month," he annouced.

Sakura gaped at him in shock. Syaoran had never taken a break from girls before!

"I don't mean I'm taking a break from you," Syaoran amended, mistaking Sakura's shock expression. "You are different, you are not like other girls," he said candidly.

Sakura resisted the impulse to shout. "I'm not like other girls," she thought sarcastically. In the past, Sakura did not mind this. In fact, she enjoyed being just who she was but all that started to change recently. It all changed when Yazumi first entered the classroom. Yazumi was originally from Tokyo but had moved to Tomoeda two weeks ago. Now he was one of their classmates. Eversince, Sakura set her eyes on him, she had fallen hard for him. He had jet-black hair and the bluest eyes she had ever seen. In Sakura's opinion, he was totally hot. Also, he was always polite and nice. So far, she noticed that none of the girls who had ever thrown themselves at him caught his attention. Sakura was not one of them who flirted outrageously with him. Instead she just admired him from afar. She was not confident like the other girls and she also knew that she was just not the type of girl that a guy had romantic interest in. Syaoran himself had eloquently pointed out that she was not like most girls.

"Maybe I can learn to change," she thought. "Maybe someone can teach me how to be the kind of girl that can attract a guy." She stared thoughtfully outside the classroom as an idea formed in her head. "But who will help me? I can't ask Tomoyo. She and Eriol just starts going out and I don't want to interrupt them." Her thoughts was interrupted by Syaoran who had accidentally pushed a book of the table.

"Damn," he cursed as he bend down to pick the book. Sakura looked at him thoughtfully. "Syaoran? That's it. He can help me and since he's not going to have a girlfriend for a while, he will be willing to spend sometime to help me. Futhermore, I need a guy's opinion on the type of girl they like," she thought again. Her mind made up, she decided to ask Syaoran for his help.

"Here goes nothing," she muttered. Taking a deep breath, she started, "Syaoran." Syaoran turned his attention to her.

"Ineedyourhelp," she said nervously.

"Huh?" he asked confused.

"I need your help," she said again, this time more clearly. Syaoran smiled.

"Anything," he answered. He had never minded helping his best friend.

"I want you to help me become a better girl," she said.

"What are you talking about?" he asked, confused.

Sakura hesitated for a while. "You see, I have this uh crush on a guy," she began. Syaoran just watched her. "I know I will never be able to attract him just being like this. I want to learn how to be more like other girls. I want to learn how to flirt and be more ladylike and do all those things that you guys find attractive in a girl," she explained.

Syaoran crossed his arms. "You can't like a shallow guy who don't like you for yourself," he said shaking his head.

"He's not shallow," Sakura protested angrily. "You said so yourself that I'm not like other girls. When you said that, it clearly indicates that I am not the kind of girl a guy will fall madly in love with."

"I don't mean that when I said that," Syaoran said.

"Will I interpret that as that," Sakura countered. "Please, Syaoran. Help me. Groom me into a more attractive girl.You are the only one who can help.Please," she persuaded, her emerald, shining eyes pleading at him.

Syaoran knew he was lost. He could never resist that look of hers. "Alright," he relented.

"Yes!" Salura said happily.

"But on one condition," he said. Sakura looked at him warily. "Tell me who he is," he demanded.

Sakura flushed. "He is......he is....," she started but stopped when she saw Yazumi just entered the classroom. Sakura blushed beet red as she stared at Yazumi. Syaoran looked at who she was staring at. He knew then who Sakura was having a crush on. Somehow, he felt a tinge of jealousy ran through him. He qickly pushed the feeling away.

"I know who he is," he said to Sakura. Sakura's head snapped back to him. Syaoran smiled. "I don't think its wise to like him, Sakura. You are just leading yourself to a heartbreak," he warned lowly. Sakura ignored him. He was about to say more when Yazumi approached them.

"Ohayo, Sakura-chan, Syaoran," he greeted, giving Sakura one of his heart-melting smile. Syaoran scowled at him.

"Goo....ood...morrr....ning," Sakura stammered. Syaoran sighed. He bet Yazumi knew Sakura liked him.

Yazumi then sat at the seat beside Syaoran.

Throughout the whole day, Syaoran kept thinking about Sakura and her crush on Yazumi. After school as he was walking back to his apartment with her, he started, "Sakura, maybe I can't help you, after all."

"What?" Sakura aked hurt. "I thought you have promised. It is so unlike you to break your promise," she said.

"That was before I realise who you like," he said.

"What is wrong with Yazumi?" she demanded.

Syaoran opened his mouth to answer but nothing came out.

"You can't find one flaw, don't you?" Sakura asked with satisfaction.

"I just don't think that he is the right guy for you," he said feebly.

Sakura's face looked more pained than angered though. She sighed. "You don't think I'm good enough for him. You don't think someone like me should go out with someone like him," she concluded erronously.

Syaoran gasped. "That's not what I meant, Sakura," he said. "I....I...," he struggled to explain. Actually, he himself do not understand why he was so against Sakura with Yazumi. If one looked at it objectively, they would make a great couple. "Maybe its because you are too selfish. You just want Sakura to yourself and don't like the idea of her with another guy," his mind said. Syaoran quickly pushed it back. "Sakura deserved to have some happiness," he decided. "And if being with Yazumi makes her happy, I guess I just have to help," he decided.

"I'll help," he informed her.

"Are you sure? Maybe it will be useless," she said dubiously.

"Don't worry. I'll give you a grooming lesson. By the time, I'm done with you, I can guarantee that Yazumi will not be the only guy who will pine for you," he said confidently.

"Really?" she asked hopefully.

Syaoran nodded. "I need to come up with a lesson plan though. Give me until tomorrow, okay," he said.

"Thanks," Sakura cried as she hugged him gratefully. "You are a wonderful friend," she said.

Syaoran smiled at her. "I hope I know what I just got myself into," he told himself as they continued their walk home.
