preciousness incarnated

After calming breathing exercises she finally remembers that you’re supposed to greet someone when you see them and awkwardly jumps back to that, smiles, and then launches right back into extreme enthusiastic unrelenting worry as soon as she notices Syaoran’s hand. She doesn’t even wait for answers she just fires off every question that immediately comes to mind, though they’re all focused on “Are you okay” and “what can I do to make you okay”, AND LIKE. THIS CHILD IS TOO PRECIOUS. SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE SOMEONE DISTILLED “PRECIOUSNESS” IN IT’S PUREST FORM AND ACCIDENTALLY DROPPED IT AND MADE IT COME ALIVE AND THAT IS HOW SAKURA WAS GIFTED TO THE UNIVERSE. 

And look at that tiny, tiny Fujitaka in the last panel just smiling at them from across the room. Just going “Yes. My child.” Though it still weirds me out that, depending on which universe we’re talking about, he could be meaning either one of them. 

But let’s not think about that. 

Exhibit B on Sakura being Preciousness Incarnate. 

It’s by no means a practical solution but that’s not really the point. She is a child, a princess even, and on hearing what’s up with Syaoran her first response - her heartfelt response - is “If I’m literally always next to you then I can always keep you safe”. 

I AM RUNNING OUT OF WORDS FOR HOW PRECIOUS THIS IS OKAY. 

I AM GONE. 

IT’S TOO MUCH. 

MY HEART CAN’T TAKE IT.
