A/N: For malfoypridedxh, who amuses me greatly and is usually a
good person to follow when looking for a good LJ community, even
though for some reason her icons always seem to show up 'x'-ed
out on my home computer. O_o;; It puzzles me . . .
One-sided Hanabi/Hinata, meaning incestuous yuri thoughts but
not incestuous yuri actions. Mind you, Hanabi's about what-
five, eight? So this isn't exactly sexual, but it is a little
dark, because kids and Hyugas both can be bastards that way.
Chuunin exam arc; set between the prelims for the third test and
the actual occurrence of said third test. Spoilers for the
Hyugas' history, Hinata's fight with Neji, and the bird in the
"Bird Kitten Doll"
Hinata's injuries are not healing well.
Hanabi watches Hinata.
Hanabi watches Hinata fall down.
This is nothing new.
So Hinata hits the ground like a dead weight and Hanabi keeps
watching, waiting for her to get back up again. Which she
Hinata is her precious sister.
But she's not.
Father says Hinata is weak is not a true Hyuga don't want her as
our heir so weak no good to us.
Hanabi wants her, though. Hanabi wants Hinata very much.
She would take very good care of her. She would brush her hair
and get her nice clothes and protect her from the confrontations
she so dreads. Hinata could sleep in her room, and if she had a
bad dream, Hanabi would make it go away, and if Neji picked on
her again, Hanabi would make HIM go away.
She'd make him go away for good, the way Father taught her.
Hinata always looks afraid. This displeases Hanabi. She likes
it better when Hinata smiles, but that usually only happens when
Hinata is alone with her teammates.
Hanabi overheard, though, from a messenger sent to her father,
how Hinata did when she fought that Neji in the chuunin exam.
How Hinata's smile was a smirk, how she fought 'til the end and
past it. And when Hanabi heard that, she got so excited. She
wanted to go find Hinata and tell her that she was wonderful
(but her father would have killed her) and then she wanted to go
find Neji and make him go away (but she decided to leave that up
to Naruto when she heard how he'd sworn on Hinata's blood to
make Neji pay).
Hanabi has heard a lot of things that she shouldn't have.
One of those things involved the Nine Tails.
She hopes that Naruto will eat Neji very slowly. She is looking
forward to watching their fight. Maybe Naruto will only eat
Neji a bite at a time, so he can savor him a bit. Maybe he will
play with him like a kitty.
Hanabi likes kitties.
She pretends that the small, tricky one that lives in the alley
down the street is Naruto and that its kitten is Hinata, and
watches proudly as they both gnaw on a squealing Neji-rat. Then
she takes Hinata-kitten home and gives her lots of cream and
milk and pets her and cleans her up, and she is the most
beautiful Hinata-kitten in the world, Hanabi is sure of it.
Hinata-kitten falls over and gets up again. Hanabi picks her up
and kisses her and tells her how good she is and how special and
precious and pretty and brave. Then she takes her to her room
and puts her on the bed and brushes her fur for an hour while
Hinata-kitten mewls piteously for her Naruto-kitty mama.
Hanabi likes Naruto a lot. From what she's seen of him, he's a
bit of a dork, but she knows that Hinata likes him so she's sure
he has secret places and tricks. Besides, he has that fox
inside of him, so he must be strong if it's been there all this
time and not escaped and only does as Naruto says.
Hanabi does not like Neji, though, because he hurt Hinata and-
she saw this once when she was hiding- he looks at Hinata funny,
like he wants to eat her up. Like he can't decide whether to
punish or protect her.
Hinata is not Neji's to punish or protect though. She is
Hanabi's precious sister.
And someday Hanabi is going to take Hinata back and play with
her forever. She'll pet her and brush her and dress her up
nicely, like the best doll in the world (Hanabi's father won't
let her have dolls; he says they are for children and she is not
a child she is a Hyuga and a shinobi), and take the best care of
her. Hinata is Hanabi's precious sister/pet/toy.
Ever since Hanabi beat Hinata, she has known that she has to
protect her onee-sama, because Hinata cannot protect herself.
The bird in the cage that marks Neji . . . that is safety. That
is knowing who you are and what you are destined to be.
Hinata has nothing like that. She does not possess the strength
to achieve her "destiny," so Hanabi is going to have to do it
It will, Hanabi thinks, be interesting. Perhaps she should give
Hinata something like the bird in the cage too someday, so that
she will know what she is forever and ever and every time she
looks in the mirror.
Hinata-kitten is still crying for her Naruto-mama. Hanabi is
still brushing her fur. She likes having a doll.
The real Hinata, she is sure, will be even better.
