Two Halves Chapter 19aSora caught up with Shiraku in the next trough of snow. She jumped over the crest of the hill just as he shot a bolt of lightning towards her side. Sora dodged it by twisting in the air and landing on the ground a few feet away.
She threw up an earth barrier as soon as she landed, preventing him from landing his next strike. He was using the lightning whips again, pounding against her wall. She had two choices; try and dodge the lightning and get in to attack him close range, or stay out of the range of the lightning bolts and try to attack him with long range jutsus.
The better choice was almost always the one the enemy wouldnt expect. She could hear the sound of the wall cracking around her as the lightning started to tear down her defenses. She had to work fast.
Carefully, she began to gather chakra on the palms of her hands and feet, focusing to spread it over her upper arms and calves. Then she compacted the chakra as tightly as she could, creating a fabric of tiny interconn
Two Halves Ch. 12Naruto had never had a hard time telling Sakura that he liked her. It had always been easy to proclaim his feelings.

This was why it bugged the hell out of him that he didn't seem to be able to do any of that with Hinata.
They were sitting in a familiar position, side by side in front of the fire, leaning back against the couch with their books spread out around them. They had sat just like this dozens of times before, studying the books that Sora gave them. Everything was just the way it always was: Hinata's pot of tea sat next to her hip, while he was surrounded by empty ramen cups. She was reading a thick book on the theory of the echoes she was able to see, while he was reading accounts of some of the most famous of the West's gang wars.
He looked up at the clock on the wall. In fifteen minutes, Hinata would get up to get more tea and offer to get

"Holes?" Naruto asked with his mouth full.
"In your education," Sora said mouth also full. "There are a few parts we simply haven't gotten to yet that we should probably cover."
"Like what?" Hinata asked.
"Like teaching you how to summon. It's a handy still to have, but with all the work you've been doing on genjutsu, I just haven't gotten around to it."
"I'm going to learn how to summon?" Hinata asked. "Summon what?"
"Ah now you see herein lies the issue. You have a choice, whereas normally you would just summon what your line would. However, Yasu and I have rather confusing lineages anyway, so you can just choose without too much hassle."
"But if you summon in lines, why didn't Kakashi-sensei learn how to summon frogs?"
"Because deep down, your father knew that Kakashi-no-baka was an idiot and not to be trusted with such things."
"So then w

"Hina-chan, hey, wait!" he yelled, but she didn't slow down. If anything she seemed to run faster. "Damn it!" he muttered and tried to run faster.
All Hinata could think about was that she wanted to get away. Away from him, away from Sora, away from being not enough. Her tears sparkled down her cheeks. She felt as stupid and useless as her days back in Leaf.
He didn't trust her. He didn't really think she was worthy of being his partner.
She had to get away, somewhere far away. Somewhere where she could sit down and cry until everything was washed out of her. Then she would be able accept the fact that she was so...useless.
And then, of all the things that could have occurred to her, her worst nightmare happened. Hinata tripped. Her feet went flying out from under her and she tumbled back and to the side to land with a loud splat on her butt in one of the rice patties. She was stuck almost to her elbows i

Shit, shit, shit, shit.
There was a man and a woman; both dressed in gathered black pants and open jackets. She wore the traditional midriff baring blouse, while he was bare-chested. Their skin was dark creamy color and they possessed a highly muscular build. Around both of their waists were blood red sashes.
There was no way you could mistake them, which was probably why most of the bar was starting to clear out.
Kaze warriors. A partnered pair most likely. After years of avoiding them, she had run smack into a pair the day she came back. Couldn't fate cut her a break once in a while.
She pointed at herself. "Me?" she asked in as innocent of a voice as she could muster.
The women sneered, twisting full lips. "We've waited years for you to venture back into our territory and here you are. We're not about to let you go, Sora."
She tilted her head to the side and tried to look stupid. "I'm sorry, I am Sora, but I don't
Two Halves chapter 16The numbers of the Kaze may have been depleted in Sora's mind, but in Naruto and Hinata's there were still plenty of them. The members lined the wall around the courtyard, sat on the edges of balconies, and stood in groups on top of the wall. Everyone was wearing either black or white, even the women who had opted to wear a saree or lanagha instead of their Kaze uniforms. They looked strange and foreign, reminding the pair just how far away from home they were. Red sashes blazed and heavy gold jewelry glittered.Two Halves chapter 168 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
But nothing flashed more than their eyes.
Naruto looked around, stunned. Somehow they had managed to plop themselves down into the middle of a clan-wide identity crisis. Everyone had realized that this fight was important; more so than if it had really just been about Sora's intentions while away or whether she had always meant to return. The reputation of the clan was at stake. Here were two fighters who had been trained by a woman who left the clan before the coup. They were
Two Halves Chapter 21Everything seemed to fall apart once they made it back to Sora's house. They lay Nori's body in one of the side rooms while Yasu bawled and a newly awakened Miki screamed. Hinata took it upon herself to calm the girl, as Yasu seemed to be in no condition to do so. They spent hours together, Hinata holding the small girl as she cried. Miki was just old enough to understand what was going on. Her father had left forever, and her mother was too caught up in her own grief to comfort her. Hinata had remembered what it was like when her own mother had died, and would not let the girl out of her sight, hoping to give some comfort to the child, and maybe find some comfort herself.Two Halves Chapter 218 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Sora shut herself in her room and didn't come out for five days. She locked the door and wouldn't talk to anyone, saying she needed time to recover her chakra, but refusing to eat the food Hinata left for her outside the door. Naruto and Hinata stood in the kitchen and talked in hushed tones about what could possibly

Sora had finally decided to take the two of them off the mountain, even if it wasnt to civilization.
Ive got to make sure both of you can spin properly before I hand you over to Nori. So were going to go diving.
Diving? Hinata had questioned.
Mmmhmm. I know a great place we can practice diving so that yall can get the hang of spinning around.
But its October!
Sora shrugged. So youll have to use chakra to keep yourselves warm. Its good training.
It was decided that Naruto would be able to get by in his boxer shorts, but Hinata was not about to go swimming in her underwear. She was wholly unconvinced that swimming was a g

Hinata? Naruto questioned, heading towards her.
He had almost reached her when the snow really started to move. The entire sheet of snow they were standing on started to slide off the face of the mountain. Naruto reached out and grabbed Hinatas hand as they began to fall. She screamed and pushed her way up against the snow.
Push out! Push out! Sora yelled, as she turned herself so that she was parallel to the cascading waterfall of snow. She bent her knees and pushed off, sending herself sailing off into the open air. Twisting around, Naruto grabbed Hinata around the waist and they pushed off as well, shooting out away from the mountain. They watched in awe as a third of the mountain slid away.

Hinata stared hard at Shivani, trying hard to see if there was any sign of life coming from the girl. But she simply lay lifeless on the ground.
She collapsed back onto the ground, crying hard into her folded arms. She felt strong arms pick her up and pull her against him. She wrapped her arms around Naruto's neck and continued to sob into his chest.
"Hina-chan, sweetheart, you don't know if you killed her!" Naruto whispered in her ear.
"There's no way!" she sobbed. "With the genjutsu, I couldn't see anything! I missed and I killed her!" She was crying so hard that she had given herself the hiccups, and now she was making a funny choking sound every few seconds.
Up in the tower, Raoul had pressed his hands and face to the sealed window, staring out at his sister's lifeless form. He shook from head to toe as he watched the doctors began to arrange his sister's body, laying her on her back and folding her arms across her chest. There was a con

"What the hell! You said this was an exercise to help us decide whether or not we would make good partners!"
"This is it. It's my special 'locking-the-two-of-you-in-a-room-together- and-forcing-you-to-talk-it-out' method. Have fun!" There were a few more giggles and then he could hear Yasu and Sora walking away.
"Why you little...!!!" Naruto's scream could be heard all over the house.
"Would you like to play some poker?" Sora asked Yasu.
"Like I would be stupid enough to play poker with you."
The sound of their voices faded away. Slowly, Naruto turned to look back at Hinata. She was standing in the center of the room looking shocked.
His face scrunched up and he started trying to force the door open again. "Damn it!" he yelled. "They must have put so
Two Halves Chapter 6Naruto was suddenly woken up, just like every single morning for the past three months, by music. Loud techno music with a strong, pulsing beat that shook the floor could be heard all over the place.

He rolled over to stare bleary-eyed at the clock. Six thirty am. He groaned and buried his face in the pillow. They had been up until one the night before, while he tried to get a hold of some stupid chakra weaving thing that was on the scroll. It was skill number 60, but they had only completed about 40. Three months and he was only less than halfway done. He had thought that he would be finished by now. But the tasks had gotten surprisingly harder. The floor cleaning exercise was piece of cake compared to what she was having them do now.
On top of that, she had hauled them into the library one day and informed them that they were to begin school

"Hey, we didn't had to fight against all the warriors in the Kaze."
"That'd be better than rotting away here!" Naruto yelled. Hinata winced and shushed him, rubbing his arm to try and calm him down. He grumbled and held her tighter. "I don't get all this stuff about the 'purity' of the Kaze."
He felt, rather than heard, Hinata sigh, and pulled away enough to look at her face. "You understand?"
She sighed again. "It sounds like something my father would say. That the strength of the clan lies in the purity of each member." She shook her head. "In fact, I'm almost positive he's said just that."

Now he had seen the pictures she had hidden from him since the first day he got there. Now the normally small stripes on either side of his cheeks were wide and jagged and his eyes were starting to head towards yellow. Now she had to go back and tell him everything.
She had betrayed him, she realized, even more than she thought she had. And that betrayal had hit him deeper than she had ever expected. She had been fooling herself into thinking that she wasn't doing to him the same thing her father had done to her. Now she just had to hope that she would have better control than she had.

Hinata sighed and took another sip of her tea. Over the past few weeks one of the things she had learned was to stay out of Sora and Naruto's arguments. After the episode with Naruto and the fire wall no jutsu, she had started to try and defuse the arguments between them. Gradually, however, she had come to realize that they rather enjoyed yelling at each other. One of them would pick a fight, they would call each other names for a few minutes and then they would move on. As long as it wasn't too serious, she had learned not to get involved.

At Naruto's insistence, they had woken up early and left to train. He was determined to get through this list as soon as possible. There were 100 things to learn and if they did one task per day it would take them 100 days or just a little over three months. It was still a long time to spend learning things he couldn't use, but he had three years to learn the charka bind.

This was another of her special missions, a mission with her friends as the objective. I lost Sasuke, there's no way I'm losing Naruto and Hinata too, not to Akatsuki, not to the Hyugaa. The thoughts of her friends created a feeling in her that she was not familiar with.

Memories from one of her past missions with Naruto came back to haunt her.
