Ino Narutos hand left his cheek, the red mark long since gone. His gaze suddenly turned dark, Youre right.
She had gone to this training ground often in his four year absence. It was the furthest grounds from the village, and so he used to be able to come here in peace. She often came here to think or sit in the tree she used to occupy to spy on him when he was either panting on his feet, or on the flat of his back. She

Shino walked along silently behind them. Every once in a while he would be greeted by one of his bugs, who were busily scouting the area ahead for any signs of the caravan, or enemies. Naruto plodded along, hands in his pockets, thinking about the past few days.

All the available ninja in Konoha had congregated in a hall at the request of their Hokage. It was time for the annual report, in which the Hokage, namely Tsunade, would inform her subordinates of the current political and economic growth of their beloved town.
Hey Hinata, Whispered Naruto as he leant forward and tapped the heiress on the shoulder. How was your mission?
Hinata shuddered but Sakura laughed and answered for her. If it wasnt our mission to kill that pig, I would have considered it anyway.
Naruto cocked an eyebrow and studied the disgusted heiress. Nata, you okay?
H-Hai. I just I dont like thinking about it.
Naruto nodded empathetically.
MirrorI was doing research, looking through some important scrolls, and Ive found out that out of four kunoichi, one will die prematurely. Shikamaru said, twirling his glass in his hand.Mirror in Fan Fiction More Like This
What do you mean? Naruto asked with a confused expression.
One out of four female ninja die unnatural deaths. Sakura said, sitting beside Naruto. I read that same scroll a few months ago. It was quite disturbing.
Naruto turned to face his pink-haired friend. Disturbing?
Yes baka, think about it. It means that out of Tenten, Ino, Hinata and I, one of us will most probably die before it is our time murdered in battle.
Naruto stiffened as that information slammed into understanding, drilling a hole in his heart. No one said anything, but all three shinobi thought the same thing.
Which one would die?
Naruto returned home an hour later, to find Hinata sitting on a couch, stroking her swollen belly.

Of course Hinata. Inform your father I will see him tomorrow morning at 10am in my office.
Sakura was grinning as Tsunade handed her the small vial. Hinata noticed the happy grins of the two medi-nin and her smile turned from wry to genuine.
Why are you so happy? She asked.

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.

Sasuke, who had originally rolled into the village with the Akatsuki, double-crossed them at a crucial moment, saving Sakuras and Shizunes lives.Do Not Disturb in Fan Fiction More Like This
Naruto looked around at his friends, grinning widely. He was turning 17 soon, and the fact that all his friends were all alive and well was enough of a birthday present to him. Beside him sat Hinata, who was in a conversation with Shino. She must have sensed Narutos eyes on her, because she turned and looked at him, offering a small smile. He responded with his foxiest grin, causing the quiet girl to blush.

Hinata heard a rustling from the other side of the room. She stiffened, and then relaxed again. It was probably just Akamaru. Maybe Kiba had left him behind after all?

However, only the members of ANBU are issued these swords. New jounin, though they have been accepted to the highest conventional class of ninja, are not adept enough to unlock the swords, but jounin that are assigned to teach a squad of genin are strong enough to render the ability of the swords useless.

"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.

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

Kiba's mother smiled. "You like girls now, do you? No more cooties?"
"Yeah right, mom!" Kiba barked, "I'll bet she has crazy cooties! I just… prolly wouldn't mind 'em so much…" His cheeks turned a soft shade of pink which complemented his new, red fang marks.
Kiba's mother laughed and bopped him on the head. "You little tramp, you," she said, fuzzing his brown hair.
"Mom!" Kiba growled angrily, rolling away, "You're embarrassing me!" Suddenly, the wind blew, and the little girl with the purply eyes slid down the slide, smiling. Kiba closed his eyes and sniffed the air. "She smells good," he whispered.
"Go play, then!" his mom yelled, smiling as she swatted him towards the playground. "Go play!"
Kiba growled and ran towards the slide, climbing it quickly and sliding down with a high pitched howl of joy. The purply eyed girl sat at

They fed the fire's hunger with a few more twigs and sticks, and finally sat down, conjuring some stumps and mounds of earth to rest their weary bodies on. Their masks, laying beside them in the dirt, proclaimed that they were special forces, black ops ninjas, while their forehead protectors were reflected in the firelight, casting the faint shadow of their village symbol on the ground.

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.

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.
Everyone was getting more missions these days, not just his team. Whenever he was home everyone else seemed to be away. Sakura was putting in extra hours at the

The noon day sun shone softly through the windows of Hinata's hospital room. It had been three days since she had awoken back in Konoha after her mission to the Land of Lightning. Though she and her team had recovered the stolen scrolls from the three rogue cloud ninja, the mission had been far from easy. Reaching for the glass of water beside her hospital bed, Hinata was reminded why she was there. She winced, clutching her abdomen as she felt fire shoot through her left side. The pain wasn't nearly as bad as it had been; at least she could walk around now without too much discomfort. But she still couldn't go home without a doctor's permission.
The hospital room seemed lonely somehow. The plain white walls and unending quiet made her feel even more alone than usual. Her team mates had already been sent away on another mission before she had awoken from her surgery. Aside from one brief call-in by her cousin Neji, she'd had

A driving rain battered the houses of the small port town on the shores of the Land of Water. Thick black clouds obscured the light of the moon and a howling wind whipped at the ships sails. Unseen and unheard, four shadowy figures leapt over the side before dashing across the surface of the water toward the shore. Moving from shadow to shadow, the four shinobi made their way through the empty streets.
"We're here," whispered the silver haired Jonin to the others, before slamming the door knocker three times. All watched their surroundings carefully while they waited for an answer.
The door's spy hole slid open. "Who are you?" a gruff and irritated voice asked.

There was a pause before the voice behind the door responded. "And just what makes you think that I would be interested in such matters?"

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.

Worst scores in his graduating class... Related poorly with fellow students... Punished countless times for skipping classes and misbehaving...' He looked like the classic trouble maker, acting out to get attention. Not the kind of student anyone would choose to teach.
She snapped the file shut, tossed it onto the coffee table and picked up the second. 'Test scores average at best... Lowest scoring kunoichi in her graduating class... Reluctant to participate in group activities... Said to lack motivation and be discouraged easily...' She was far from being a model student, herself.

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

Hinata awoke the following morning, her body aching from head to toe. The others had set a punishing pace the previous two days, and now it was all catching up with her. Not that aches and pains were unfamiliar to her. She'd trained herself to exhaustion countless times before, just like him.
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.
Sakura stirred from her slumber. "Good morning," she yawned.

"But I messed up, worse than ever," he said, hanging his head in shame.
