After the conflict with Eriol at the Tokyo Tower, Sakura attained the final Clow Cards: The Dark and The Light. Since then, everything’s gone back to normal––but only briefly.

While Eriol has decided to move back to England, Syaoran suddenly confesses his true feeling for Sakura and tells her he is moving back to Hong Kong. What will Sakura do? Although she’s unsure of her own feelings, her best friend Tomoyo tells Sakura that the true answer already lies within her. That is when Sakura decides to make something for her dear friend.
