The episode begins with Sakura's class attending their cooking lessons at
school. One of Sakura's friends is talking about special cards being sold at
the Twin Bells Toy Shop, which claim to help you gain the power to do things.
Meiling overhears and has a suspicious look on her face.
The scene switches to Sakura, who is trying to make rice cakes. Unfortunately,
Sakura is very scared of the noise the oil makes when the food makes contact.
She doesn't like the sound or the spitting. The oil starts to smoke and
Sakura freaks out a little. Later at home, she is trying to practice with her
father and is still overcome by her nervousness.
The next day, during P.E. class, Naoko is preparing to jump the vault. Naoko has
had a lot of difficulty with this job and one of her friends yells to go ahead,
because she wished on the card. Naoko says she has been praticing and then
runs to the vault. This time she is successful! Curious, Sakura asks Tomoyo
what the other girls mean by 'the card'? Tomoyo tells Sakura about the cards
at Twin Bells.
Sakura and Tomoyo head to the toy store after school to try and find a 'Cooking'
card, but they are sold out.They are told store will have the cards in stock the next day.
While there, they run into Meiling who seems to be purchasing a 'Love' card.
And she's just a little embarrassed about it, too.
As they leave, Meiling's card blows out of her hand. It lands, inconviently,
at Syaoran's feet. He picks it up and notices how very like a Clow Card it looks.
Meiling laughs it off, takes it, and they leave.
The next day at lunch, Yukito and Touya come to visit Sakura's school. They all
have lunch together, and Yukito tells Sakura how much he loves croquettes. She
immediately decides she must conquer her fear and learn to make them. So
Sakura and Tomoyo head to Twin Bells once more.
While at the toy store, Sakura senses the presence of a Clow Card. Examining the
rack where the cards are stored, she feels the card's power. But it is gone.
Someone else has alreadly purchased it. The store's owner can't remember which
child bought it, but knows that it was someone from Sakura's class.
Sakura and Tomoyo leave the store in a hurry and call Kero-chan, who is
in the middle of a video game, on the cell phone. He orders Sakura to hurry
and find the card right away. Sakura uses The Fly and the girls soar over the
city, hunting for the card's aura. As they fly, Kero-chan joins them and informs
the girls that this card must be The Shot.
Tomoyo notices Naoko and the girls swoop down discreetly, hide wand and check
which card Naoko has. It is not the Clow Card. So they ask Naoko if she has
seen Chiharu and go in search of the next girl. In the meanwhile, Syaoran has
noticed the Clow Card's presence near him and has gon searching for it.
Sakura and Tomoyo find Chiharu and check through her cards. Nothing. But
Chiharu mentions that Meiling also bought a card. Tomoyo goes to search for
Meiling on the ground and as she leaves, Sakura spots Syaoran. She tells him
that Meiling has found The Shot. Syaoran becomes very concerned and together,
he and Sakura use her wand to fly in search of Meiling.
As they head over the school, they spot her. She is holding the card, which seems
to think will help make Syaoran love her. Sakura yells out Meiling's name, and
she turns. Meiling is very upset to see Syaoran and Sakura together. They tell
her she has a dangerou Clow Card, but she won't believe them. Syaoran tries to
pull the card from her hand, but in the process the spirit of the Clow Card is
The Shot begins to fly about the school yard, attacking Syaoran. The more it
flashes past him, the more accurate it gets. During a particuarly nasty hit,
Meiling screams. It as at this moment that Sakura notices the bright, setting
sun. Summoning The Mirror, she holds it in front of her and uses the sun's light
to blind the card. It then flies into the mirror and rebounds into the wall.
Weakened by the collision, Sakura is able to capture the card.
That night at home, Sakura is finally able to make the croquettes. Kero tells
her that the cards at the toy store where not magic, they just helped people
believe in themselves, which is what helped them work hard enough to overcome
