I don't normally do this, but because of the nature of this archive, I decided. But the sequel to this story has been posted. You can find it in my profile. It's called:

Forces of Magic

This title is simple but has a lot of symbolic meaning. Not to mention the story has a bunch of yummy Sakura/Yue goodness! Here's the first scene to wet your tongue.

"So do you have any plans for the summer Sakura?"

The said girl looked up from where she was gathering her things to look at Rika. Sakura did have plans, but they were plans that involved magic and sorcery, nothing she could tell her other friends about. So she shrugged before saying to Rika, "Not really. I didn't have time to make any plans. There was a lot going on."

Tomoyo rolled her eyes. "That's a lie. Sakura's been too preoccupied with her boyfriend."


"It's true," Tomoyo sang.

Sakura blushed. Maybe that was part of the truth too…

"You mean Yue?" Naoko asked.

"We should go on a double date or something this summer," Chiharu suggested.

"Maybe," Sakura said imagining the time she would have trying to convince Yue to agree to something like that.

"It wouldn't hurt to ask him. He's not that shy is he?" Rika asked.

"Yue's not shy. He just doesn't like being around people," Sakura corrected.

"I'm sure you could convince him," said Tomoyo.

Sakura sighed. She wasn't going to get any peace if she didn't at least agree to that. "I'll mention it."

That seemed to satisfy the girls, and Sakura continued to pack her bag, or rather started to anyway. She stared into it for a moment.


"This wasn't in my bag," Sakura said putting her books down and taking out a small box.

"What is it?" all the girls asked crowding around Sakura who only shrugged and opened the box. They all gasped.

"It's gorgeous!" Tomoyo said looking at the gold and diamond necklace.

"Is it real?" Rika asked.

"It has to be," Naoka said.

"Who's it from?"

Sakura looked at the box. "It doesn't say."

"Aw," Naoka said. "Yue gave you a gift."

Sakura frowned and shook her head. "This isn't from Yue."

"How do you know?"

"This isn't Yue's style," Sakura replied although that wasn't the true reason (fully anyway). She would have known if it was from Yue. She would have felt his lingering energy on the necklace. "And it wasn't in my book bag all day. It appeared in my book bag like magic…"

"Oh come on Sakura. That's silly. It's had to be in there and you didn't see it," Chiharu replied. "I bet you have a secret admirer."

"But who is it that could afford a gift like that?" Naoka asked.

Sakura didn't answer and closed the box, setting it down on the table so that she could pack her other stuff. She then grabbed the box and threw her book bag over her shoulder.

"What are you going to do with it?"

"I'm not exactly sure," Sakura said putting a finger on the side of her face as she pondered it. "I just hope it really isn't from some secret admirer."

"Why? Scared of what your brother's going to do."

"No," Sakura muttered and then sighed before saying. "It's Yue I'm worried about…"

So that's just a first scene, not the first chapter and I need some opinions, see how much traffic is coming through so I can determine whether I'll update once a week or twice a week. So check it out, leave feedback and I'll move forward from there.
