The rain still falls on Tomoeda and Syaoran states that possibly someone with more power than either of them is making it rain. Sakura asks Yukito over to talk to Yue and Kero tells Yue that it was "his (Clow Reed's)" presence. They go to Penguin park once again and soon everyone is caught in spirals of water. Realizing that her wand doesn't use the power of the dark anymore, Sakura says the new spell and creates her own magic circle and freeing herself from the spirals. She now has to change the Fiery card to free the rest. This requires much magical power, causing Sakura to fall asleep.
