Broken Tides

By WolfyRuler

Mystery / Romance

Day 1

I woke up on a barren beach. My mind was empty and my memories were cleared, all except for my name, Sakura. Stirring beside me, a boy who was seemingly about my age, began to sit up.

He had ruffled brown hair, and stern dark brown eyes. He wore a strange green outfit (Admin: Think, Cardcaptor outfit.) and had a sword at his side. "Huh? What where am I?" He blinked his eyes slowly, as if he was absorbing the information of the current situation. He turned his head slowly towards me, then he looked and began to stare.

His eyes poured into mine. Our eyes locked and suddenly I felt a strange familiarity towards him. Maybe even more than familiarity.

"Who are you?"

"HOE?"

"Ugh, who are you?"

"Sakura, you?"

"Xiao Lang."


Time seemed to fly by on the beach. Hours passed by and an awkward silence was all to be heard, except for the alluring sound of the waves crashing on this endless strip of sand. 'The sun began to set. Its bright colors that were caressed against the "blue" (Which was growing darker) of the daytime sky, began to flow into the darker colors of the twilight. Stars began to shine and the crescent moon lazily hung in the sky, leaving a dazzling light that shone on the lonesome beach.

I looked over at Sakura, her sweet emerald eyes stared into the endless reaches of space and her mouth was gaping, as what seemed, at the stunning beauty of the night.

I continued to stare at her. She was beautiful. Her hair was short and honey colored, her emerald eyes were filled with a curiosity, and she seemed to share a deep connection with me. Though neither of us could figure that out.

Suddenly, a deep urge to know more forced me stand up (More like jump up) and walk awkwardly towards Sakura. I sat down next to her and looked over. 'Still in a trance, huh?' With a closer inspection I was that her eyes were clouded with a thick mist and she began to lift her arms towards the stars, while mumbling things that I could not understand.

"Sakura! Snap out of it!"



Admin: Oh hello! This is mah first time making fanfic, soooo um, yeah.

Noodle (Mah sistah): Really?

Admin: Yep! So dont expect it to be 'OUTOFTHISWORLDAMAZIN' but I have had writing experience, so expect something okay-ish, but it will be long. And feedback is needed! But don't try and hurt mah feelingz.

Noodle: Yeah, she's a big crybaby.

Admin: (*////*) N-no I'm not....
