Kakashi put down his copy of Make Out Paradise and leaned back staring up at the sky. It was beautiful clear day and it was quiet for a change as he sat up high in his favorite tree. The tall trees were just another good thing about the village hidden in the leaves. He could climb a tree and no one would know that he was there, except a Hyuuga of course. The branches from nearby trees offered the best cover-up from unwanted eyes when you wanted or needed to be alone.There goes my perfect day…Kakashi frowned. Some very loud voices could be heard in the distance and they seemed to keep getting closer with each passing second.
"I'D NEVER GO OUT WITH YOU NARUTO!"
"But…but Sakura…Sasuke doesn't like you and if he does, he's not doing a very good job of showing you…"
"YOU KEEP YOUR DAMN MOUTH SHUT ABOUT SASUKE! YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT US YOU ASS!"
Kakashi groaned while shaking his head. He had never heard Sakura use such strong language and for her to defend Sasuke was beyond him. Naruto was no better than Sakura though he deducted. Sakura hated Naruto yet each and everyday it was the same thing. Naruto would ask her out. She'd punch him in the face-or groin. Then she would storm off leaving Naruto bloodied up and bruised. Even so, on most occasions someone was always there to clean him up. The shy little princess everyone knew to be Hinata Hyuuga.
Kakashi stayed quiet as Sakura passed by still cursing Naruto under her breath. Like clockwork, Naruto fell down to the ground and Hinata rushed over to his side and proceeded to bandage him up. Because Naruto was a fast healer thanks to the nine tailed fox, it was pretty pointless for Hinata to help him yet Kakashi never bothered to tell her this bit of info. For starters, it was not his style to get involved in the affairs of mere children. Even though they were all of age, their behavior at best was mirrored after mere twelve year olds.
Then there was the fact that based on careful observation Hinata seemed to enjoy helping Naruto. Everyone in the Leaf Village knew Hinata to be the shy Hyuuga princess and heir to the Hyuuga throne yet no one paid her any attention. It wasn't that Hinata tried to be invisible but because she never said anything and kept to herself a lot, she was always just…ignored.
Kakashi watched Naruto thank Hinata before disappearing leaving her on the training field all alone. Normally she would just sit down and start reading a book but not today. Today was different. She dropped to her knees, her head between the palms of her hands and began to weep. Kakashi sat there for several minutes watching her cry. She's never done this before. Could it be that the emotional strain that she's been putting herself through everyday is finally getting to her?
Hinata had finally reached her breaking point. For years it had been the same thing day after day. She would sit behind a tree pretending to be engulfed in a magazine or novel when all the while she would be watching Kakashi's team train, especially Naruto. They would come each day when they had not been assigned a mission to combat train or just practice some jutsu. Sasuke would always get away quickly after practice leaving Naruto and Sakura behind. That was when Naruto usually began begging Sakura for a date and it always ended the exact same way, which would result in her having to go and aid him. He would always thank her before running off to get ramen. Today however was different. A simple thank you just would not do. She had reached her breaking point and as much as she loved Naruto it was time to let him go. It was now clearer than ever that he would never love her the way that she loved him and therefore it was the end.
An hour had passed and Hinata was still sitting in that same spot. She had managed to reduce her crying to just small sobs Kakashi noted but he still couldn't help but to feel a bit sorry for the girl. He had only been in close contact with her a few times but where others failed to notice her, he did not. Sakura was loud and very outspoken- a complete turn off in his opinion. Since Sasuke was very much like him, he was pretty sure that was the reason why Sakura had no chance in hell of landing him, unless of course he just wanted to have sex. Hinata was everything opposite Sakura: quiet, very reserved- probably a perfect match for someone like Sasuke.
Kakashi closed his eyes to think. Normally he wouldn't get involved in such silly antics but he was bored and it wasn't as if he had anything better to do besides read the Toad Sage's magazines or meet women for discreet fun; both which were starting to get old. What he really needed was a new hobby or a woman to call his own but he knew with his line of work it would never happen nor was he ready to open his heart to anyone ever again. He needed a change. Some training ought to do the trick…or matchmaking. Kakashi smiled as he gathered his things and made a sprint through the treetops. I think I'll pay Lord Hokage a visit. Things were about to get very interesting very quickly.
