Tho Halves Chapter 19bHinatas mind was in something vaguely resembling an overload. For years she had been asked to do things that were impossible for her. Day after day, year after year, she had been asked to excel at techniques that she couldnt even complete. One of the things that leaving with Sora had meant to her was learning the difference between unreasonable demands and being pushed. Her father had always come to her holding up an ideal and asking her to become that. Sora held up her potential and asked her to live up to it. She never asked to do things she wasnt ready to do.
At least until now.
You have to summon a falcon big enough for all three of us to ride on, Sora said solemnly.
Hinata stared at her as though she was out of her mind. But Ive never summoned anything larger than a peregrine! she cried.
Well, you are now, Sora said. I dont have the chakra right now and any other way is going to be too slow. Even at top speed,

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

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

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

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

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.

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."

"Would you like to play some poker?" Sora asked Yasu.
"Like I would be stupid enough to play poker with you."

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

"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?"

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.

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.

He wanted to slap her across the face and ask why someone so worthless would want him to do her a favor, why he was subject to someone so… so much weaker than himself.
"Of course, Hinata-sama," he replied, bowing his head. The way he said sama, it was as if he was spitting it, just trying to get the bitter taste from his mou

I could be training, I should be training. I'm too weak right now, she thought, he'll never respect me, never think of me as an equal, never find it in him to love someone who could never come close to him. Hinata, who are you kidding? 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

She shivered slightly, in spite of the fluffy warm hoodie that covered her body. The air was the warm morning air of late spring, early summer, and a few cherry blossoms drifted around her in the light breeze. Her arm flashed out and caught one as it fluttered airily to the ground. Slowly, Hinata squeezed it, forcing chakra into it, until finally, she unclenched her hand and let the remaining dust and pollen sift away, dancing on the breeze.Apart Chapter 7: The Mission in General Fiction More Like This

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.

Her head was bent in sadness, in self-pity.Apart Chapter 2: The Summons in Teen More Like This
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.

"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,

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.

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.

Blood pumped painfully through Hinata's veins as she scrambled over roots and rocks and soft forest earth, fleeing from—

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.

She opened her eyes to see Sakura still asleep in the bunk across from her. Hinata rose quietly, so as not to wake the pink haired girl, and began stretching out her tired muscles as best she could in their rather cramped cabin. A slight twinge of pain caught her in the side, and she stopped her stretching routine to check on her injury. She stepped over to the mirror on the wall and lifted her night shirt to inspect it.

"HINATA!!!!THAT'S IT!! I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU! YOU DON'T DO ANYTHING RIGHT! YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY WORTHLESS!! NO LONGER AM I GOING TO CALL YOU A DAUGHTER OF MINE!! PACK YOUR STUFF AND GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!!"
My father's words replayed over and over in my head as I stared out the car window, I unconsciously rubbed my sore shoulder from the bruise where Hiashi (I couldn't even call him father anymore) had hit me. I could also tell that a bruise was forming on my cheek, but I was too sad to give it any thought.
I looked over to my mother, Hikari who was driving towards her home with tears trickling down her cheeks. She shouldn't have had to see my father hit me, but I was happy she came when she did, or else I would have many more bruises over my body.
The car pulled up to the garage of my new home. It was small, but I had a feeling I'd enjoy it much mor

She glanced down at her phone, now all she needed was to wait for the call. And just as she expected, her phone went off.
"Hello?" She asked, even though she knew it was the police.
"Stay in the house, and don't let anyone in unless they knock three times. Naruto is on his way now and I'll be there with reinforcements in about ten minutes." Shikamaru's voice, which was a little panicked, was heard on the other side of the line.
Hinata hesitated, a little scared at the tone Shikamaru was using, but she knew she had to ask, "Where is he?"
"... Outside the house."
And all that confidence flew straight out the window

"Shikamaru?! What do I do?! Oh my god!" She was hyperventilating, barely holding the phone to her ear she was shaking so much.

"Thank you, Naruto." She whispered as he gently laid her into the bed and taking a spot next to her. Quite a few times he had to remind himself to get rid of those perverted thoughts, because, well, he was in the same bed as the girl he was falling in love with, so the thoughts were lingering, but he quickly pushed them aside, still holding her tightly, against his chest as her breathing deepened and she quickly fell asleep.
Naruto grinned at his sleeping beauty, taking in her gorgeous vanilla and lavender scent. He wasn't very surprised, the smell suited her perfectly, and he loved it. Gently reaching his hand that wasn't wrapped around her waist, he stroked her hair, making her nuzzle into him appreciatively in her sleep, and him smile even more. He took a deep breath of her overwhelmingly calming scent, and slowly let her heartbeat lull him to sleep. He could really get used to sleeping like this. Even just being in close proximity to this g

Naruto nodded, gave a subtle grateful look to Shikamaru before showing Hinata out of the room, Naruto not far behind her.

Naruto and Hinata walked out of the police station, and walked the rest of the way back to the police car. "Would you be able to direct me to your house?" Naruto asked, because he had no idea where Hinata lived.

He smiled at her, "Thank you. I think you're the first person who's ever told me that. Actually, I think you'll be the only person who

About half way through the lesson, I felt something warm touch my cheek. I let out a small shriek and nearly fell off my chair but quickly regained my balance as the hand was retracted from my face.
"What the hell was that for?!" I growled.
He spoke like I hadn't said anything, "Who did that to you gorgeous?" Kiba asked concentrating on my fading bruise.
"None of your business," I growled under my breath.
"Somebody's feisty. I like that," he winked.
I almost puked and this time I did fall off my chair. I saw his hands come out to catch me but I twisted my torso so he wouldn't catch me, I would much rather land on the floor. And I did.
Now I was happy for the six years of forced ballet. Since I was very flexible I was able to slide out of his grasp. Even if it meant landing on the floor.
The whole class went silent and turned to me. I blushed in embarrassment and picked myself off the floor, ignoring the stare

Hinata had never been so scared in her life. She couldn't defend herself as the bald man approached, and the 'run' option wasn't really coming through to her head. She was in such a shock and so scared that she couldn't move. The next thing she saw was a clenched fist flying straight towards her and she let out an ear-piercing scream before she was hit in the cheek, in such a hard hit that had her flying into a table. She felt herself hit the ground awkwardly before her mind went black.

Slowly, Hinata pried her eyes open, feeling an agonising pain in her head and abdomen. She tried to sit up, really awkwardly since her stomach was hurting like hell. Slowly pulling up her pyjama shirt, Hinata saw the huge purple bruise residing there, they must've kicked me on their way out or something. She also noticed that her arm was either dislocated or broken, and she couldn't see it, but she was sure her face wasn't looking too pretty at th

I slowly opened my eyes to a dark room. Blinking a few times, I saw that I was in a bedroom, an awfully unfamiliar bedroom. Looking around, I took in my surroundings. There was a large bed, in the middle of the room, with a blue and black checked pattern on the blanket, there were some black tables, and a small desk in the corner of the room, with some pencils and paper stacked messily on it.

It goes on for as far as I can see! Naruto said. Stood, clear as day, but surrounded by a blackness that held nothing. HELLO! He cried.
What do you mean youre letting him into the academy?! Said the voice of an elderly man.
I agree, it would foolish to allow that boy to become adept at fighting. Came an elderly womans voice.
Naruto looked around, but could see no-one.
I do not believe it would be much of a problem. Defended a familiar voice, the voice of the third Hokage. Naruto is lonely, and needs people around him. And his growing anger towards the villagers who persecute him will undoubtedly cause a problem in the future. At least with something to focus on, and direct his emotions, he may become an invaluable asset to the village.
That is a good point. But it still does not remove the danger of what he is capable of. Said the woman.

Hinata nodded and the two Hyuuga quickly headed towards the hospital.
Hinata and Neji rushed into the hospital. They quickly found which room the Hyuuga leader had been taken to and rushed to his room. As they burst in, Hinata gasped and covered her face as she saw the mess that was her father. Hiashi was laying on a bed, covered in cuts, gashes and bruises; Blood splatters covered his torn clothes and skin, his leg was burned and bloody.

The next morning, the sun shone through the blind and over the sleeping couple as they lay together under the sheets on Narutos bed. Hinata awoke to the realisation of what they had done the previous night. After all the blushing and the nervousness, the thing they were so uneasy about just seemed to happen without any apprehension in the end, and they had happily spent the night together intertwined first in passion and love, and then in each others arms as they slept.
Hinata stared at the still sleeping Naruto as she rested her chin on his chest. She smiled, not caring that she was covered only by the bed sheet they were under, even with the person she gets the most nervous around.
She couldnt explain the feeling, she couldnt stop smiling, she had become one with Naruto, the love of her life, and was feeling elated, and somehow more confident in herself.
Morning. Hinata whispered as Naruto slowly opened his eyes.

Neji though kept his distance, unsure of Narutos reaction to his presence.
The groups split up and to go to their homes, saying their goodbyes to Naruto and telling him how happy they were he was back in the village.
Hinata decided to stay with Naruto a little longer, and walked with him back to his apartment. Her one arm around his, and another holding a large bag.
Its so good to have you back. Hinata said as she hung on to his arm as they walked. She had said it so many times she had lost count, but each time meant just as much as the time before.

For what? Hinata asked, unsure what he was apologising for.

A few days passed and the investigation team returned to Konoha, the rumours about Naruto, and the destruction of the town had spread through the village by this time, and everyone was awaiting the news about what they had concluded.
Morino Ibiki had led the investigation, and reported his findings to both the council and Tsunade. He had concluded that the attack was done by ninjas numbering at least four, and at least one of them prominent in using fire style jutsus. Something Naruto didnt know. He also concluded that there was a battle, and that in that battle, the four ninjas were killed.
His overall conclusion, Naruto had arrived after the attack and killed the rogue ninjas.
The council was happy with the conclusion, not even concerned with the fact they had not had faith that Naruto was responsible.

It took Naruto ten minutes to reach the source of the smoke. It WAS the town... literally, the smoke was from the charred remains of the burned out buildings that littered the small community.
Naruto slowly, and diligently, walked down the main street, looking at the buildings, and the kunai that lay scattered across the floor. The same street he had walked down just a two hours ago had gone from a beautiful place, to hellish shell. His face contorted as he also began to notice bodies, some charred, and still smoking, others, cut up, Who did this? he thought to himself as he continued through the town.
The sounds of laughter echoed through the air and Naruto paused. Up ahead were people, alive. He snuck up, keeping out of sight until he could determine who they were. Were they the ones responsible? Or villagers?

The next morning, Hinata arrived back at the hospital as early as she could to be with Naruto, but found that he was still unconscious and in a comatose like state.
Will he be ok, Sakura? Hinata asked the pinked haired medic.
Im sure he will. Sakura smiled, but truthfully, she didnt know. Not even Tsunade knew in what condition Naruto would be in when he awoke; mentally or physically. The only thing they could do, was wait.
And wait they did, for four days.
Each day Naruto began to stir more and more in his sleep, going from a comatose stillness, to having nightmares that made his body twitch and move.
Hinata spent much of her time with him, foregoing her new training regime just so she could be there in case he awoke. When visiting hours were over she would go home, and try to train, but her mind would always wander to thoughts of her boyfriend.

His friends would visit from time to time, and while he would let them in and talk to them, he would shy away from any discussion concerning the towns destruction, much to the annoyance of the Tsunade, who was still waiting to hear Narutos side, as was the council.
We must know what happened. One of the councilmen said.
I sent an investigation team there, to ascertain what happened. Tsunade said.
And what if they find out that the fox is responsible? Another councillor asked.

So why hasnt he given you more details?

Naruto was sat on the bed next to her, as her father, Hanabi, and Neji stood nearby, having been asked to come.

After the war had ended Sasuke was imprisoned for a year but Tsunade worked hard to get him set free early, and even reinstated as a Konoha ninja.

Hinata's eyes peeked open after her sleep was disrupted by a stray ray of sunlight. She blinked a few times and looked around the room. Everything was tidy. However it wasn't the Hyuuga room that she was accustomed to. Her head bobs up and down. She wriggles off the warm, moving pillow she had slept on. Looking at her 'pillow' she realises it's not a pillow but a man's chest. Her brain kicks in and reminds her of the previous night's events, finishing it off with a nice, sharp throbbing pain to her head. She instinctively puts her hand on her head to feel a small lump where she had hit it on the pantry shelves.
