|One morning in Reedington Elementary School, Kids are coming talking together with their friends. Madison who found Sakura calls her and runs up the stairs to catch up with her.|
|Madison||Wait up, Sakura! Remember me, your best friend?|
|Sakura||Oh, sorry, Madison.|
|Madison||I've been trying to catch up to you. You look like the wheels just fell off your in-line skates.|
|Sakura||Oh, no, I'm OK.|
|Madison||You should be feeling great 'cause of your Card capture last night.|
|Sakura remembers the night before.|
|Li||Force, know my plight. Release the light!|
|Li uses his magic to shoot the Thunder down on the roof of School.|
|Li||You are looking at Raiju, the Thunder Beast. Boy, you are hopeless.|
Back off. |
The Windy Card'll take care of this. Here.
|Li||Put it away. Windy can't stand up against Thunder.|
|Li gets ready to blow the Thunder with his magic.|
|Madison||But then you went ahead and captured the Thunder Card with your Shadow Card and proved to Li Showron that you deserve to be a Cardcaptor, so cheer up, Sakura.|
|Sakura||I really want to be good at this, but it's all so new to me.|
|Sakura shifts into another flashback mode, remembering just back when she is taking up the Thunder Card she had sealed.|
|Li||Boy, it's like I said. You really don't have a clue about this, do you?|
|Kero||I was appointed by Clow Reed himself.|
|Li||A lot of good that did.|
The memory of the night before gets Sakura down in depression.
|Sakura||Don't you see, Madison? If Li hadn't shown up when he did, I could have been in big trouble.|
Rita talks to the two when Sakura and Madison go into the classroom.
|Rita||Hey, how are you doing, Sakura?|
|Sakura||Oh, I'm all right.|
|Rita||What's that about?|
|No sooner has Sakura taken her seat, Li comes into the classroom.|
|Li walks to his seat silently, when Sakura is getting nervous.|
Uh, look, Li...
Last night, thank you... for your help.
|Sakura||I mean, I appreciate you being there, but I won't need your help next time.|
|Li||It's like I said. You don't have a clue. You're no Cardcaptor.|
|Sakura gets puzzled at Li's response the way she has not ever expected, when he sits down on his seat. Sakura is trying to cheer up.|
|Sakura||Well, then maybe you can tell me why I was chosen to open the Clow Book if I'm not a Cardcaptor.|
|Sakura||I mean, it's not like I've been studying this my whole life, like some people. And I know I don't have robes.|
Hmm?! (Jumping on his feet) |
Those are the Li family's ceremonial robes. You have no right to talk about them.
|Sakura||Hey, take it easy, Li. Come on.|
|Li||Don't mess with things you don't understand, Sakura.|
|The air is getting stuffy with a tension, so Madison stands up forward to relax those two.|
|Zachary||I'm class president, and you're new around here.|
|Zachary||I assign classroom duties. You have to clean up, wash up, and brush up.|
|Sakura and Madison go blank and collapse with Zachary asking Li a favor that doesn't make sense.|
|Li||Am I supposed to do all of that right this mimute?|
|Sakura||Boy, for once, Zachary's tall tales save the day.|
|Zachary||Come on. Let me introduce you to the blackboards.|
|When Zachary takes Li's hand to the blackboard, Sakura breathes a sigh of a releaf.|
|Zachary||How do you feel about gum removal?|
That afternoon, Sakura is dreaming, where she is standing on the top of a building facing to a big tower, in a pink costume, with Kero floating beside her.
Who's that? |
Who is that?
|Sakura jumps off the building.|
|Mr. Terada wakes up Sakura who is dozing off in class.|
|Sakura||Uh. Sorry about that.|
You woke up just in the nick of time, Miss Avalon.
The lesson is over. |
OK, class dismissed.
|Girl||Good night, Mr. Terada.|
|Terada||Don't forget—test tomorrow. Rita, you need to pass this one.|
|Rita||I... I know, sir.|
|Madison||You're ready to go?|
|Sakura||I'm just waiting for Rita.|
|At this moment, there is a thump just behind Sakura, which just creeps her out.|
|It is Li who has just stood up to go out of the classroom.|
|Madison||Li is really creeping you out, isn't he?|
|Sakura||Yeah, I guess so.|
|Madison||Hey! How about this? Let's go hang at your house.|
|Sakura||Yeah. Rita's worried about the test, so we could help her study, and maybe get some blading in afterward.|
I really want you to teach me that new racing start of yours.
After we study, of course. |
|Sakura||Sorry, Madison. I know I'm being a bit of a space case today, but it's nothing that a great 360 won't cure. Let's go.|
|Madison||I think I rather ride a hundred miles in a car with Li Showron than attempt a 360. Maybe we should just study.|
On their way home, Sakura, Madison, and Rita drop in on an accessory store.
|Sakura||Hold on guys.|
|Madison||Sakura, I gotta go in here.|
|Madison||I've been wanting to check this store out.|
|Rita||This place sure has great stuff, Sakura.|
|Sakura is fascinated by the brooches in the store.|
|Rita||And these brooches are beautiful.|
|Sakura takes the one shaped like a heart with wings.|
Well, I'd say you made a perfect choice. |
What do you think of this one? (Picking up the cross brooch)
|Madison||Hey, you should get one, too, Rita.|
|Rita||I've gotta have this one. (Chooses the sword brooch)|
|Madison||I've never thought of you as the sword type.|
|Sakura||That's a whole new side to you.|
Later on that day, Kero is playing a video game in Sakura's room.
|Kero||Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah! Come on!|
|Sakura||Kero, we've got company, so you can't come downstairs.|
|Kero||OK, OK, OK!|
|Kero clears the level.|
|Kero||Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yeeees!|
Downstairs, Rita is sitting on a sofa, when Sakura brings some tea for the three themselves.
|Madison||Terada really scared Rita.|
|Sakura||I know, but we're gonna help her.|
|Sakura puts the tea pot on the table.|
|Sakura||Study time. All set?|
|Rita||First we eat, and then we review for the spelling test.|
|Sakura||Yeah, we work together on this, and we'll all ace it.|
|Madison||No problem. That's what friends are for.|
|Sakura||Rita, let's start. First word is ``Parallel.''|
|Sakura||Great! OK, let's see now. How about ``Brooch''?|
|Rita||Um... hard one. (Eating pudding)|
|Madison||Maybe we ought to put them on for a little inspiration.|
|Three of them each opens the box of brooch they just bought, and put them on.|
|Madison||B-r-o-a-... Um, b-r-o-a-w...|
|Sakura||So, what do you think, Rita? How do you spell ``Brooch''?|
|Sakura||Don't take too long, Rita.|
|As soon as Rita puts on her brooch, she gets strangely quiet.|
Rita? Rita? What's wrong with you?
|Rita shows her face up. There is something strange about her, she seems to be taken over by something.|
|Soon, her sword brooch sends out bright light, and turns into a real sword. Rita controled by something unknown attacks and tries to stab Sakura with the sword. Sakura barely ducks away.|
|No matter how many times she dodges the blow, Rita repeats her attacks to Sakura. She staggers out in the hall, Rita thrusts the sword toward Sakura.|
|Sakura slips her head so as to keep her life within a inch away from the sword sticking on the wall. She runs to the entrance, but she has trouble opening the door all because she is upset.|
|Sakura||Come on! Come on! Open! C'mon! Aaah!|
|Sakura turns back, she can see Rita slowly walks up to her holding the sword.|
|She finally succeeds in opening the door, she jumps out of her house, and she falls on the ground.|
|Madison||Sakura! Oh, oh!|
|Kero||I sense a Clow Card around here.|
|Kero hurriedly comes downstairs, but he sniffles something else he senses as well.|
|Kero||Hey! Wait a minute! I smell pudding!|
|Madison||Not now, Kero! Sakura's in trouble! (Pointing outside)|
|Outside, Sakura is still busy dodging Rita's attack.|
|Sakura||What's going on?|
|Kero senses what's inside the sword making Rita attack Sakura.|
Yaw! That's the Sword Card!
|Sakura||It can't be. Rita doesn't know anything about swords.|
|Kero||Yeah. That has got nothing to do with it, Sakura. The Sword Card has taken complete control of her. Sakura, use the key to capture the Card.|
|Madison||You've got to do it, Sakura!|
|Sakura||Rita's my friend! Aah!|
|Sakura sidesteps Rita's sword attack, but she trips and rolls on the ground. She quickly stands on her feet.|
|Sakura||Key of Clow. Power of magic, power of light, surrender the wand, the force ignite! Release!|
|The key turns into a wand, she grabs and twirls it. The she holds the wand forward.|
|Kero||What are you, nuts?|
|She jumps over Rita onto the fence, and begins running on the fence.|
|Kero||You don't play nice-nice with Sword Card staring you in the face, Sakura. Whoa, Rita may be your friend, but the Sword Card is most definitely not. Now, go get it!|
|Sakura barely jumps away from Rita's flick of sword, she land on the fence behind a mirror. Unfortunately, Rita's next blow cuts it into two,|
|Kero||Need I say more?|
|Rita jumps to attack Sakura.|
|Sakura can't do anything against Rita's attack but closes her eyes with fear. But another sword, all of a sudden, pokes between Rita's sword and Sakura to save her life. It is Li.|
|Li||I'll stop her.|
|Li jumps off the fence, and holds his sword facing to Rita.|
|Sakura jumps behind Li to prevent him from attacking back at Rita.|
|Li||What are you doing?|
|Rita tries to stab Sakura, then she escapes jumping high in the air, holding Li.|
|Sakura||I don't need you here!|
|Li||You're no Cardcaptor.|
|Two of them fall onto the plant in Sakura's house's yard.|
|Madison||Huh, are you two all right?|
|Sakura||Yeah, no thanks to him.|
|Li||Listen! I almost had her, Sakura.|
|Sakura||I'm not going to let you hurt Rita.|
|Sakura and Li exchange glares.|
|Kero||No one has to get hurt if you can get that sword out of Rita's hands pronto!|
|Sakura||OK! (Running out to Rita)|
|Li||What are you doing?|
|Sakura||I'm gonna capture this Clow Card. Stay out of it!|
|Li||She can't handle it. Yeah!|
|Kero bites Li's hand to prevent his path.|
|Kero||Cool it, kid!|
Illustion Card. |
Now. Let Rita see what she fears the most.
Illusion. Release and dispel!
|The Illusion shows Rita something in a human figure. Rita is looking into it motionlessly.|
|Sakura quickly runs toward Rita, and drops the Sword off her hand, and then Rita, losing the control, falls unconciousness. Sakura catches Rita falling.|
|Sakura||Sword Card. Return to your power confined!|
|The Sword is sucked up to the tip of the wand and turns into the form of a card. The Card spontaneously flies to Sakura's hand.|
|Madison||You captured it!|
|Sakura||Rita, you OK?|
|Li||She fainted, that's all.|
|Kero||I'd like to point out... that Sakura did not need your help on that one, kid.|
|Li||Everyone knows that Sword Card's an easy capture, but then again, you're just a stuffed animal.|
|Kero||Stuffed animal?! (Bits Li's finger)|
|Li||Aaaaah! (Trying to shake Kero away)|
|Madison||Sakura, someone's coming!|
|Kero let go of Li, but he kicks Li on his face when he goes hiding.|
I was suppose to meet up with Tori here, but that overachiever's
probably still at work, huh? |
Hmm? What happened?
|Sakura doesn't know what to answer, while she's holding Rita unconcious. Li is also not on his feet.|
Oh. Whoa. (Notices Li's robe) |
Hey, uh, cool outfit.
|Li runs away from Julian.|
Next morning, Rita is reading a book in the library, when Sakura comes up to her.
|Sakura||Rita, how are you?|
Oh, hi, Sakura. That was so weird yesterday.
I can't believe I fainted like that. |
It's like I don't remember a single thing. I don't suppose my brooch ever turned up, did you? It's strange.
Aaaah... (Getting upset) |
No, uh, but here. (Handing in something to Rita)
Oh. Thanks. |
Umm, should I open it here?
|Rita finds Sakura's brooch is inside.|
|Rita||Sakura, you didn't have to do this.|
|Sakura||I felt really badly that yours just seemed to disappear like that, so I just thought maybe this would make you feel better.|
|Rita||You're such a good friend.|
|Sakura||I really want you to have it.|
Later on that day in the afternoon, in the corner of Tori's high school, Tori and Julian are talking.
|Tori||What?! That kid gangs up on my sister, then come by my house?|
|Julian||Yeah, but he sure left in a hurry.|
|Tori||Just wait till the next time I see him.|
|Julian||Hmm? What's this? Defending the squirt?|
|Tori||No one can hassle my sister but me.|
|Julian||Well, well. Big brother seems to have a soft spot.|
|Julian||She's late. You're sure she said to meet here?|
|Tori||Yeah, she's always late, so she's gonna end up doing dinner and dishes for a week.|
|Julian||OK, you don't have a soft spot.|
|Meanwhile, a charm card flies at Tori on the arm, and catches on fire.|
|Tori||Ugh! (Putting out the fire)|
|Li||You wanted to see me? (Standing on the fence)|
|Sakura is running to Julian, who is waving hand to her. But beside him, Tori and Li are exchanging provocatiove look.|
|Julian||Hey, over here. Is Rita feeling better?|
Uh, fine. |
Thanks a lot for helping us out, Julian, you know, for carrying Rita inside the house. Umm, here. (Giving Julian a gift)
|Li||What?! But I'm the one who...|
|Julian||You know, you didn't have to. (Seeing what's inside)|
|Sakura||We were lucky you came by.|
|Li runs away from where he is.|
|Li climbs over the fence, and runs away.|
|Tori||Oh, chocolate, huh?|
|Julian||Yeah, sure. Help yourself.|
|At the next minute, Madison appears and talks to Sakura.|
Hey, Sakura. |
I'm gonna redegign my website. You want to help? I've got to upload some new video clips. But first, I have got to tell you something.
(Whispering in Sakura's ear) The video clips are of you capturing the Thunder Card last night.
|Madison||Just kidding. I needed something new for the home page, and this'll be perfect. Hee hee!|
|Madison is holding up her camera to tape Sakura.|
