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.
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

"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."

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

"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

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.

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 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
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

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.

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.

"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."

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.

Okay listen. Narutos been missing since yesterday evening and we have no clue what he is up to. I want you all to look for him until you find him, Tsunade said serious.
Did he run away? Ino asked.
I-I dont th-think he ran away, Hinata answered.
Anyway he could have gone anywhere, so-
Who could have gone anywhere?
They all looked around and saw the blonde they were actually ordered to search. Not only that, behind him were two unfamiliar people and a fox. Akamaru growled to the fox, which paid the dog no attention.
Naruto-kun, Hinata was the first one to speak.
The timid Hyuga girl was so happy she forgot everyone around them and hugged the boy as if he had been gone for a year.
So are they officially going out? Ino asked.

Naruto was walking around in the forest of Konoha. His hands in his pockets and his eyes were focused on the ground. The one thing that was on his mind was Sasuke. Sasuke and the fact that he didnt returned to the village after killing Orochimaru.
Stupid Sasuke, he thought, you think your high and mighty. Wait until you see how much I improved since the last time we met. I will kick your butt so hard that you will beg for mercy.
But even thinking things like that, didnt make him feel better. He knew very well that he had a long way to go until he was strong enough to do something like that. Naruto stopped walking and looked around to see where he was. It was the place where team 7 passed Kakashis test. Somebody was standing behind one of the wooden pillars. Forgetting everything about Sasuke, Naruto walked up to the person. It was none other than Hinata.

He picked up Naruto and laid him on his back. Bring him to Tsunade immediately, Sakura said strict. After that Lee dashed off with his enormous speed.
Sakura helped Hinata standing up. Lets go, Sakura said. Everybody nodded and they started to run back to the city, though not as fast as Lee.

Sasuke got home from a long day at the Konoha Police. He was tired and wouldn't have minded falling asleep in the hallway if it would have been not so ridiculous. It was only a couple of days to Christmas, so things at home were getting crazy, especially the kids. They couldn't stay still, always asking when Santa would come.
Today was no exception.
"Tadaima." Sasuke opened the door and immediately got tackled in two leg-hugs. "DAD!" the twins shouted happily as they attached themselves to their father. "Hey kids," the black-haired smiled as he tried to move towards the kitchen, with the new 'ninja' weights tight to his legs. It didn't go smoothly, mostly because he was so worn out of the day, but he managed to reach his destination without falling. The kids were laughing and teasing him like this was fun. Sasuke threw the two a smirk and then turned his attention to his wife. "Hey love," he whispered in her e

Well except for the fact that this morning I left the hospital, then went to get the Demon Summoning Scroll, went to the Demon realm to train and when I got back I was sent back in time, I am perfectly fine.
Hinata sweat dropped, although she had to agree he had been through a lot today. Especially meeting his parents was really something. Hinata was glad Kyubi had sent her there as well to at least make sure he wasnt the only one from the future.
Then Naruto realized something, looked at Kyubi who seemed to have read his mind, jumped up and left his home with Kyubi, who had led eight of his tails disappear again, following him.

"Hey, Hinata, are you there?" the boy asked, waving a hand in front of her face.

Broken rays of sunshine cut through the clouds, trying to warm the village of Konoha. The young man dragged his feet as he wandered through the streets. His black chunin vest hung open, letting in the cool morning breeze. Hands thrust in his pockets, he shuffled along aimlessly.
"Man I'm bored," he announced to nobody in particular.
In fact, he'd been bored an awful lot lately, though it certainly wasn't from a lack of missions. Ever since he'd come back from the Land of Water he'd been on almost twice as many as usual. All he'd been doing for the last several weeks was training and taking missions. At first he'd thought that was exactly the way he liked it, but he soon realised he was missing out on something more important. He'd hardly seen his friends at all.

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

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 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.

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.

Naruto, 17 years old, smiled as he watched his best friends eat his ramen. If there was anything better than ramen, it was sharing it with your friends. He was ecstatic; ramen with his best friends, having seen Gaara and being paid to hang out with his friends. His eyes travelled over his group of friends, looking over each of them before his eyes stopped on the figure sitting to his left.
There was something undeniably attractive about Hinata eating his ramen, and the way she licked her lips after every mouthful.
Hinata, He was shocked by the huskiness of his own voice. Did you enjoy the mission?
Her eyes flickered up to him and she blushed a delicate pink. Having grown-up and gotten

Naruto nudged his side against her. Baa-chan assigned every member to the Hyuga clan to a shinobis house for protection. Only she knows where each Hyuga is. He gently tapped his head to hers. And Im the only one who knows youre staying with me.

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.

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.

Otherwise, the hug would have been quick and he would have gone running away, but this hug lasted to the point where she could feel the warmth coming from his body. She shivered at the thought of him being so close, but excited her at the same time.

The Ninja and the Samurai
In ancient times the samurai dominated all aspects of the economy and government. Their swords gave them the edge in battle being able to slice through a human in a single attack, while the ninjas lesser materials made their weaponry dramatically inferior. The ninja had been all but obliterated from existence and the remaining practitioners of the forbidden art were exiled from society with bounties on their heads. This is the story of the uprising of the shinobi and their conflict with the powerful samurai over 3000 years ago.
Two guards fell to the ground leaving the only entrance into a fortified city unguarded. Their outfits were mainly black trimmed in white on the cuffs and around the neck. They each had swords that they were unable to draw before being hit. A single man stood over their bodies. He was dressed entirely in black and his mouth and the top of his head was wrapped in black cloth leaving only his eyes visible.
