Syaoran was taken into Fei Wong Reed’s custody as payment for the wish he’d made while Watanuki opens his eyes for the first time and that scene became the first thing he ever saw.
At the ruins, Syaoran, Fai, Kurogane and Mokona were there… figuring out how their fates had been woven for the fulfillment of FWR’s one selfish wish.
Fai, rather Yui still carries the guilt of what had happened between him and his twin Fai. Kurogane’s mom was killed under his watch and so is his father in battle with the monsters leaving him all alone and outraged! Syaoran knew of this and it was all that evil FWR’s doing as a part of his master plan.
Partly, Syaoran felt responsible for all these. Hadn’t he committed a taboo in order to save an important person, he thought that it might have been the other way around, that Fai might not have been born with a twin and Kurogane’s parents might not have died at all.
Ouch! and Kurogane punched him! Why Daddy?! But Mother Fai is so understanding consoling little Syaoran like that. After Syaoran’s revelations, now they have more reason to chase after FWR!
Fai’s story is the most tragic of all three, I cried really well remembering those earlier chapters I’ve read. Despite those happy smiles there’s a vast amount of pain and guilt he carries with him and I was so glad there had been a closure to his story at the cost of Kurogane’s arm. While we have known how did our tough guy Kurogane became like that is because he was forced into the situation like everyone else.
I wasn’t convinced of the reason before why the others agreed into accompanying Syaoran into FWR’s lair aside from rescuing Sakura and now that they have put the pieces together, no matter how painful it is, they now have the solid cause to get back at that three-eyed monster!
Mokona Modoki’s always so sweet and sensitive!
