NejiTen Request Drabble: Kiss and Make UpTitle: Kiss and Make Up
Summary: First kisses are usually thought of as romantic, but that doesn't mean they always have to be. Takes place when Neji and Tenten are both six and at the Academy.
“Now isn’t there something you want to say?” Iruka prompted, gently nudging Tenten forward.
The six year old folded her arms and shot a glare at the small boy only a few feet away from her. Neji was glaring back, his white eyes now further emphasized by a large black mark directly under his right one. Tenten didn’t even bother hiding a smug grin at her handy work.
“No.” Tenten said promptly, stomping her foot slightly as Iruka sighed deeply. The other teacher, a new woman she didn’t know well, mirrored Iruka’s body language as she stood by Neji.
“Come on, Tenten, you don’t want to hurt your classmates, do you? I know you’re mad…” the woman started only for Tenten to narrow her eye’s further and point

Lady Tsunade stared at them with bloodshot amber eyes, seeming absolutely exhausted even though it was barely ten in the morning. "I know that one of you is a jounin and the other two are chuunin, but..." She hesitated, fiddling with the files in front of her, making sure all edges aligned perfectly with each other as well as the sides of the desk before she looked up again. "I'm giving you a D-rank mission today."
Tenten fought back an impulse to twitch. D-rank? She searched her memory, flipping through her team's last few missions in an attempt to remember if any of them had done anything unforgivably horrible. Lee, of course, had been Lee: wildly loud and enthusiastic and himself; Gai, as always, an older version of Lee (or perhaps Lee was, instead, a younger version of Gai?); Neji his unflappable self: strong, silent, with that one vein in his forehead occasionally protruding from suppressed irritation

A name was all he had left. All that remained of a once great family. It was his duty to restore that name; to ensure, through his actions, that it would once again be whispered in reverent fear.
All that shining glory had become merely a tarnished reputation trampled into blood-soaked mud. Power had proved to be a malicious mistress for the mighty Uchiha clan; at the height, when the clouds shrouding heaven were just in view, she had cut the ties of fortune and favored the bold no more. Instead she gifted her worshippers with ignominious death; now they were nothing more than corpses rotting beneath hard-packed soil but today their ghosts had risen to unleash their fury at innocent lives stolen away just as they were reaching the height of their potential.
Once upon a time there had been no one but him; a boy a mere child easily dismissed by those in power but, as he fought with all the skill and power he could muster under the lowering sky, Sas

Why does Tsunade always give me so much work before my day off? Shikamaru groaned as he walked up the steps to a rooftop with a covered bench. He sat down, laid his head back and began to watch the clouds go by, as he always did. It was something that he always enjoyed doing, from when he was a young student in the academy to now. Although his schedule had become crammed full of meetings, appointments, and other engagements, he still found the time for him to watch the clouds. It was a relaxing pastime; he exerted no effort in doing so, and his mind was calm.
I thought I would find you here, he heard a female voice call out to him. Propping himself up, he gazed into the eyes of Temari, the fan-toting kunoichi from Suna. The two had been dating for some time now, and Temari had taken what could be called a permanent residence in Konoha; still acting as liaison between the two great nations, but spending her free time with her boyfriend and other acquai
NejiTen- Winter and TrainingNeji paced back and forth with impatience. It was a stupid idea to train with Tenten with the conditions she was in, he thought to himself.NejiTen- Winter and Training6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
They had come back from a mission and Tenten had been fatally injured, but she was okay. Lady Tsunade took care of her for a while, but Tenten just wanted to get out of the hospital to get stronger. So she snuck out the hospital, and begged Neji to train with her. Neji wanted above all things to train with her when she was still recovering. But though he didn't want to, he did any way.
It was in the middle of winter, the entire Leaf Village was covered in snow. It was difficult training when the snowflakes would get in your eyes. During training, When Neji used the Eight Trigrams- Palm Rotation, one of the kunais he deflected had hit Tenten, and plunged into the middle of her back. She fell from the tree she was sitting in and was rescued by Neji before she could hit the ground. She groaned in major pain. Neji frantically took her to the hospital.

Strawberry One: Chocolate Strawberry
Tenten had always loved chocolate.
From the first time she tasted it, she had let the chocolate melt on her tongue, enjoying every last bit of it, pure bliss running through her body as the treat dissolved.
She loved chocolate.
But chocolate and strawberries together was…
Unfortunately, strawberries were hard to get.
So what does she do?
"NEJI I WANT STRAWBERRIES!"
"Get them yourself."
"Get. Them. Your. Self."
Tenten stuck out her bottom lip as she put her hands together and leaned up, looking at Neji with huge innocent brown eyes. To add more effect, she tilted her head and whimpered ever so slightly.
Yes. This was Tenten's puppy look.
The dreaded, fearsome, invincible, the look that made even the strongest melt, th
Birthday Presents NejiTen"So Neji" The young white eyed man looked over at his female teammate, stretched out on the grass beside him. They were on break from training, but while Tenten looked like a cat lounging in the warm summer sun Neji still had his propriety and sat in his meditation pose.Birthday Presents NejiTen2 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Yes Tenten?" He hated saying that phrase, because her reply usually got him into trouble. She smirked at him, not a good sign.
"Anything you want for your birthday?" Neji was surprised to see it was an innocent question like that.
"There's nothing in particular that I want. Don't worry yourself with it." He said apathetically, closing his eyes, signaling that he wished to meditate. Usually Tenten accepted that this was the end of the conversation, but today she was particularly stubborn. Getting up, the kunoichi sat right in front of Neji, staring at him until he finally opened his eyes as if to say 'what?'.
"There has to be something you want, it's your 18th birthday!" Tenten said, looking right into his pupiless eye
Christmas Packing NejiTen"Tenten, get down from there." Neji said, watching with nervous white eyes as his girlfriend teetered on the ladder next to their Christmas tree, trying to get the beautiful star off the top. The brown haired girl ignored him, reaching even farther over to get the star.Christmas Packing NejiTen2 years ago in Romance More Like This
The pair was packing up after their first Christmas together in their new, shared, apartment. It had been strange for both of them to have someone to celebrate with, and Tenten has gone a little overboard with the decorating and cooking, to say the least. They had both enjoyed themselves though, so it was worth it in the end.
Now Neji had regretted letting Tenten get such a large tree, as even a girl as graceful as her could fall very easily and she was not looking quite so stable leaning over the pine.
And so she fell, tumbling down with nothing but a little squeak coming out of her mouth. Her eyes closed instinctively and she prepared for the fall which, of course, didn't happen. Neji had caught her, and set her down

I have always thought your hair was beautiful but the first time I saw it down it became an obsession. We were on a mission and sometime during fray you lost your hair tie. Of course that wasnt all that happened.
Neji! Youre bleeding! Do you want me to bandage it for you while Gai-sensei tends to Lee?
Ill take that as a yes. Come here and lift your shirt.
When you sat down and pulled off your shirt most girls would have gone gaga but as impressive as your abdomen was, I am a strictly professional kunochi of course I couldnt help but notice how your hair brushed your face as you turned your head. I will remember that that scene forever.
Neji- shirtless, glistening with sweat, clothing scuffed, and hair falling in your face. It was the most attractive thing I had ever seen. After I had finished bandaging the gash in your side. You stood and pulled on your shirt.
Tenten, You said in thanks along with a nod

My utmost apologies for troubling you, but it appears you've been assigned a difficult mission. I am taking this time to remind you of our training. I have all of my faith in the fact you'll succeed, but you tend to let your guard down on your right side. Make sure to be aware of that. It wouldn't be beneficial to the team if something were to happen. Please excuse me, though, for speaking so forwardly. We all await your return.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I'm on my way back to Konoha as I write this. Your reminder about my dropped guard really helped on the mission. We were able to complete the mission sooner than we expected. I really appreciate the time you put into sparring with me. Thank you. I also want to say how much your note meant to me as well. We'll be back in a month—give or take the weather. Wishing to be home...

Tenten knew Neji had a soft side, one he hid from most of the world. She knew because she'd seen it.
She saw it when he ate the anniversary dinner at his parents grave. Even in the early days, before he and his uncle had learned to understand each other, the anger in his eyes was always replaced with a soft aching sadness when he sat before the stone with two names carved in it. He hadn't invited her, not exactly. Out of concern she had trailed after him, thinking he didn't know. When he sighed, stood up, then walked over and dragged her out from behind the tree she had thought he would yell at her or send her away. Neji surprised her though and introduced her to his parents as his new team m

"So Naruto..." sneered Obito. "I thought you said you weren't going to let even a single one of your friends die?"
The Uchiha let his gaze drift away from the obnoxious Jinchuriki cradling the dead Hyuga boy, and took a moment to survey the battlefield. Riding atop the Ten tails, Obito could have been a god surveying the four corners of the earth.
Not that he took any gloating pride in that. Not that any of that mattered. Nothing mattered. There was only one reason that he was still alive, one reason that he forced his broken twisted body up every morning. There was only one reason for all the death and terror and horror and war.
It was all for her.
Rin Nohara. Her smile haunted him still. Obito would be the first to admit that the dark powers that kept his body moving put him in the category of 'no longer being human.' He accepted that the horrors that had happened to him had dashed his mind into a

“That’s not it, Neji!” Tenten shouted, frustrated. “You’re supposed to put your pinkie on the black key, and keep your point finger on the third white one!” she instructed, pointing to each key as she mentioned them.
She exhaled then, before glaring at him. Who knew how hard it would be to teach the prodigy how to play the piano?
And here she was, scolding him, but the Hyuga was unusually quiet. That was good. But what annoyed her most was that he even seemed to be enjoying it!
“What is wrong with you?” she asked. “You sick?” she placed a hand on his forehead, genuinely worried that he may have come up with something that would cause him to act like this. At the moment of contact, however, it was she who withdrew her hand. Not from any signs of sickness from the Hyuga, but from the own heat she f
Of Last Names and Drunken ConfessionsThe first time, Neji had been reading scrolls on his bed when Tenten suddenly shoved the sliding door open. His head snapped up immediately, freezing in shock as he took in her disheveled appearance- ragged uniform, dirt-and-blood smeared cheeks, and wild, panicked expression. Her eyes latched onto his for a moment and then she launched herself at him.Of Last Names and Drunken Confessions1 year ago in Romance More Like This
Taken aback, Neji grunted as she slammed into him, smashing her lips to his. Gently, he pried her off and, without asking any questions, pulled her close again, arms wrapping around her waist. He stroked her back and whispered comfortingly into her ear as she began to sob into his chest.
When she had started to hiccup quietly, he shifted so that her back was facing him and began untangling her hair. “What’s wrong?” He asked quietly, running his fingers in soft strokes through her waves. She’d never cried in front of him before.
She didn’t say anything, and he didn’t push.

In her opinion the club was rather dull rivalling those boring meetings that she has to sit through at work apart for the music being blasted from the speakers. The club felt one-dimensional and frankly Tenten was getting bored. She was getting tired of watching couples make out exchanging liquored breaths and saliva. Did she mention that the club was overpopulated with females who had been drugged with some sort of aphrodisiac? So far three girls had hit on her. She had never squirmed this much in one night all her life. And the sight of other humans had never been less delightful.
Honestly the prospect of going home to her warm bed and half-read romance novel was looking more and more appealing as the minutes rolled by. She was however finding a particular drunk guy interesting; apparently he thought he was in labour. Pathetic isn't it?

The Office Affair Ch: 5Fridays were always Tenten's favourite time of the week but she had found herself looking forward to the ending of the week more than usual. The fact that her boss was an ill-bred egomaniac didn't help to deter the insufferable atmosphere that pervaded the place anytime both of them were in the same room or purge the bad blood that initially began between them form the first day. The idea of going to work in order to make money had never been less appealing to her. But this particular Friday night was dull and strikingly lonely. All nights were like that here but the seclusion tonight seemed to have been magnified with the knowledge that tomorrow morning, she'd be all alone again.The Office Affair Ch: 53 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

There was nothing even remotely appealing about sharing a bed, Tenten found later that night. Nothing changed simply because they were forced to lie down and share a limited space while they were at their most vulnerable. She was still angry at Sasuke – for his words and his actions; for being so confusing and contradictory… For having taken her away from everything she loved. She didn't want to lie down next to him, but she'd had no choice. Anger had quickly been replaced with that helpless, irritated frustration that only occurred deep in the night when being unable to sleep.
He tossed. He turned. He muttered under his breath (Thankfully she couldn't make out what he was dreaming about). He stole all the covers.
All of that she could have lived with because, even in sleep, Sasuke was carefully guarded. He strayed no closer to the invisible line dividing their shared space into half than she did - and she was still awake. The problem was that she'd never
