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.
The snows still going to be moving when we land! Try to stay on top as best you can! Use chakra! Sora yelled as loud as could over the howling w

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

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

"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."

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

Mmmhmm. I know a great place we can practice diving so that yall can get the hang of spinning around.

Sora shrugged. So youll have to use chakra to keep yourselves warm. Its good training.

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 21 in Fan Fiction More Like This

Hinata blushed and looked confused. They were standing in the forest a few miles away from the village where they had spent the night. 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.
Hinata looked at the tall tree in front of her. She was determined; she could do this. She had done other exercises similar to this back in leaf with her team. Plus she had been gathering chakra to her hands since the moment she

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
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 16 in General Fiction More Like This

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

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. She'd begun to feel it after she'd decided to help Naruto go after Sasuke; it was a sort of protectiveness, a protectiveness of her friends, family, her village. I wonder if this is how Naruto feels all the time, he never even hesitates to throw himself in harms way to save his friends.
Memories from one of her past missions with Naruto came back to haunt her.

Hinata nodded, and sat down next to Naruto, who was shoveling down ramen as fast as he could. Finally, he slowed, and with ramen hanging out of his mouth, looked over and saw the girl sitting next to him.
"Hinata!" he said, or at least, attempted to say, choking a bit on his ramen. Hinata blushed slightly, but decided it was time to stop running. Carpe Diem, she thought, just go with it, and show no fear.
Full of determination, Hinata said, "I'll have a bowl of whatever Naruto-kun is having today." The old man smiled, and winked at her in a kind way.
"Coming right up."
Naruto pounded on his chest, coughed a few times, and turned to face HInata. "I had no idea you ate here! I've never seen you in here before!"
Hinata smiled cutely. "I love this place, I eat here all the time."

I could be training, I should be training.

You needed more time to train, to hone your abilites so he would look at you next time you fixed a mission to be able to go with him. If you just hadn't accidentally mailed that letter...
It was the letter that had been the problem. She had written a few years ago, after the Chuunin exam, after he finally noticed her. She had edited it over the years, but the basic gist had been her explaining the way she felt about him, the reason she turned red whenever he brushed against her, the reason she retreated into

Kiba had since re-donned his fuzzy-hooded jacket, but left it open to show the traditional black shirt and wire mesh for shinobi. His hood hung down, showing off his short brown hair, and the red fang-shaped tattoos on each side of his face were as bright as ever. His face was serious as he stood up straight, watching Tsunade shuffle papers around. She seems irritated, he thought.
Akamaru was sitting obediently by Kiba's side, even larger than he was before. Had Kiba needed to, he could have ridden upon Akamaru's back. The dog was looking around patiently, wagging his tail.
Shino stood next to Akamaru, his hands in his pockets. Shino's outfit had changed little over the years. His hair was still unkempt, his eyes were still covered by those perfectly circular sunglasses, but his jacket was gray and hooded, the zipper open, and

Which is exactly what she did, Or, tried to, but Naruto beat her to it. With stunning speed, he had her in his arms, held close against his chest. She blushed, reveling in his warmth, but Naruto did not stop there. A second later, he had pushed her back against a tree, and was pressing his body against hers.
"Hinata," he whispered heavily. She chanced a glance into his eyes and saw that they seemed glossed over, distant. It was as if he was thinking about one thing, and one thing alone. Hinata could guess what was on his mind, and she liked it.
Without warning, Naruto delved into her neck, kissing, licking,

She had risen from her bed, from the security of her quilt, wiped her eyes, and had slowly hopped into the shower, like an automaton.

She got out, dried herself, and threw on her normal clothes, pulling her soft hoodie over her head and slipping into its comfort. Breakfast was a glass of milk and some toast, and she munched it halfheartedly, her pale purple eyes glossed over and half closed.

"Where am I?" she asked aloud. This didn't make sense. Where was Naruto? Where were the others? Where was the enemy? She stood and tried to get her bearings. Nothing seemed right in this place, surrounded by thick red mist.
A hot wind blew against her, carrying whispers with the heat. They were faint, like the voices of a chalkboard, the powdery lines given utterance to mumble white words. Hinata strained to hear them, to make some sense of the sound around her. One voice came through clearly.
A forest began to gather around her in the swirling red fog, the trees pushed into focus by some strange force.
Who…? What's going on?!
Panic rose within her, and she ran, speeding through the trees with her arms trailing out behind her.
"Don't look back! Don't let it—DAMN!"
Blood pumped painfully through Hinata's veins as she scrambled over roots and rocks and soft forest earth, fleeing from—

"Damn vivid," she muttered, breathing heavily. She was surprised she actually said it aloud. Hinata doesn't talk like that, she thought, a bit confused. It was hard to think over her panting, her gasping. And for a second, she felt there was something inside her, something distinctly not Hinata.
It was a gone a second later, and she was left alone, alone inside herself. She was just Hinata, just shy, scared, weirded-out, uncomfortable Hinata sitting alone in her wet nightgown and her sweaty covers in her drafty apartment. She closed her eyes and ran her hands through her hair, sighing, sorting her thoughts. She tried to remember the dream, and instantly tried to forget.

Hinata tried to ignore the slight tingle in her left side; all that remained of the stabbing pain that had been plaguing her just two weeks ago. She rushed through the village streets, hoping she wouldn't be late. 'An urgent summons from the Hokage, what could be so important?' she thought. 'It couldn't be a mission already. My team hasn't returned yet, and I've only just recovered from my surgery.'
She dashed up the steps and through the halls to the Hokage's office. Pausing briefly to catch her breath, she presented herself before the Hokage's assistant.
"Ah, Hinata." Shizune looked up from her work and gestured her forward. "You can go in. They're all waiting for you."
Hinata knocked lightly, and was answered with the Hokage's call to enter. She opened the door and took the first step in, only to freeze when she heard another familiar voice from inside the room.

The rain was getting heavier as the boy leapt from rooftop to rooftop on his way home. 'What was I thinking? I can't believe I did that!' His cheeks were still burning at the thought of what had happened just a few moments ago. He barely noticed the freezing wind as it whipped around him. 'She must think I'm totally weird, I mean she just stood there staring right through me.' Soon his apartment building emerged out of the darkness. He made the last jump, landing in front of his doorway. 'I just hope I don't run into her anytime soon; it would be so awkward,' he thought, as he opened the door and stepped in.
He locked the door behind him, shook some of the water out of his hair and moved to take off his jacket, only to realise he wasn't wearing it. Confusion turned to panic when he suddenly remembered where it was. 'Aw great, she still has my jacket!' He slumped his shoulders and groaned, realising he was going to have to see her again a

'So warm...' She curled up closer to him. 'So soft...' She nestled her head into his chest. He rocked her back and forth, slowly, gently. 'Hmm, Naruto...' She didn't want it to end, but gradually the dream began to fade away.
Hinata could hear the ocean waves. She felt the ship roll gently from side to side. Then came the unpleasant prickling sensation in her temples. Her eyes felt dry and cold. She tried to open them but quickly squeezed them shut again. They felt as though they were full of sand. For a moment the girl just lay back and listened to the sound of the water. Then she heard someone breathing. She turned onto her side and pried one eye open just long enough to see Sakura lying on her stomach in the bed across from her, asleep. Hinata sighed. Her friend was alive. Their mission had been successful, and they were on their way home.
A few minutes later, she heard the pink haired girl stir. "S-Sakura?" Hinata whispered.

The morning light touched his eyelids, and Naruto groaned unhappily. He didn't want to wake up. He was having such a good dream. He tried to go back to sleep and return to that world of candy pink and emerald green. But his mattress felt like it was made of stone and his neck and shoulders protested.
He dragged his stiff, aching body out of bed and looked around groggily. Light filtered through the thin curtains of the tiny hotel bedroom. He pulled them back and peered out through the window into the clear blue sky. The sun was already climbing high and he figured it must be around mid-morning. The growling of his stomach soon confirmed that theory. He slipped off his old sleeping cap and started hauling his aching body into his clothes. A knock at the door interrupted his struggle.

This was perhaps the most critical mission Konoha had faced as of yet, and most of the ninja that were assigned to it had been nothing more than rookies no more than three years ago.

Ive read a few floating around and I wanted to do my own since I didnt feel very satisfied with some of the direction they had taken.

Through the years my space had caved in and I was nothing more than a oversize closet, full of dust.
For nearly a hundred years I collected memories, waiting for an invasion that never happened.

Sleep was the last thing on Hinatas mind last night. Actually she didnt even remember falling asleep. The last thing she remembered was sitting up in her bed, trembling, while having a death grip on Narutos hand begging him to not leave her alone. I must have looked like such a child, the young Hyuuga thought as she remembered the painful expression on Narutos face while he looked at her, and his failed attempt to smile and make her feel better.
After being snuck into the Hyuuga compound and into her room so easily with Naruto, all she could think about was somebody else with excellent stealth skills breaking into her home, and that terrified her. Thats when the blonde started to leave she desperately clung to him and would not let go. His words meant nothing to her when he said she would be perfectly ok and was completely safe, it was a lie, or at least thats what she told h

Then she went to visit Kurenia to help out with some house work, and then stayed for tea while the two discussed how the training had gone. Luckily for Hinata, Naruto was never brought up, if he was the Hyuuga didnt know if she could keep a secret like that from her sensei. She already felt a little guilty for not telling her about her first actual date, but then again, Hinata didnt know if these little dates were actually going anywhere. After a quick goodbye, the indigo-haired young lady walked back to her house to do her daily chores. Well, actually she didnt have any true chores assigned to her, but she liked helping the branch members around the house, they are her family after all, and were more kind to her then any of the other main house Hyuugas.

She had slept fairly well last night, and trying to put yesterdays events behind her, she walked out of her room and head towards the Hyuuga training grounds.
Naruto was already awake when hunger finally took over him and he got up to make himself some instant ramen. He slept horribly last night trying to sort out his emotions, but didnt do very well.

He then let out a sigh of relief, put on a big foxy grin and whispered thanks Hinata. Hinata gave a small smile and nodded, but on the inside she felt terribly sad.
After Hinata ordered and received her ramen, there was an awkward silence between the two.

One of the advantages, she thought, of undertaking such a tedious job was that it took her mind off the situation with Naruto and Sakura.
Shed thought it over time and time again, wishing so much to talk to Naruto and make him understand the situation but the possibility of running into Sakura kept her away. The medi-nins words had hurt her feelings immensely and she felt betrayed by one of her few girlfriends. It also made it difficult that she was best friends with Naruto, and Hinata did not want to ruin one of his precious relationships. Its what he treasured most.
