Okamimaru~ For the first three chapters, the story will take place in Hinata's POV.
Chapter 1: Sprinkles~
They say we can't feel sadness. That we traded all emotions except logic for our powers, that we are no more than sociopaths with special abilities, a being with no regret, a killing machine. While dolls are just empty shells, having no better purpose than to take orders, but if this is the case why are we both so driven to move forward? To keep breathing? To make better use of ourselves...why do I still hear that voice deep inside of me...telling me...the right choice, clearing the path between right and wrong?
"Hey Helena! Interested in the Contractor newspaper today?" Several people around me turn to stare, I glare and they quickly advert their gazes. Even after two years I still have trouble remembering that contractors are common knowledge now. At first the government wanted to have us all wear a particular symbol to indicate what and who we were, but that idea was quickly dismissed as some of us gradually gained powerful positions in the world.
"Anything new Choji?" Choji ran the local gas station and food mart, a family business his great great-grandfather started.
"The Black Reaper strikes again, but that's about it. Nothing new. You need to be careful about all this research, people are going to get the wrong idea and think your one of them. I don't want you to get hurt over a misunderstanding." His tone of voice quickly changed from teasing to a concerned scolding. No need to tell him that people had already been after me over the *misunderstanding*, nor was there any need to mention that I wasn't the one who got hurt.
"Relax Choji I'm fine! If anything Sprinkles will protect me! No one can resist her cuteness!" A smile creased across his weathered gray face. Poor Choji, his family was murdered by a contractor a few years back, but despite that he had never treated me with anything less than kindness. Although, that might have to do with the fact he didn't know what I was, as far as he knew my interest in contractors was part of my job as a *reporter*.
"Hey Helena, how about a date?" I knew he was joking, it was a routine between us by now, he'd ask me out and I'd turn him down with some sort of excuse about how my job kept me too busy.
"Sorry sweetie, I have a major article due tomorrow."
"Sure of course you do", he laughed, "You probably have a young hot boyfriend hidden in your closet! Next time then! Anyhow Helena take care and be safe!" I waved goodbye to him. Choji was good and kind to everyone, he never charged any of his friends for newspapers. Too bad everyone was his friend. I sometimes wondered how he managed to keep the gas station open.
But then again being a contractor isn't the only thing I lied to Choji about, there were three other things: my name, age, and job. My real name is Hinata Hyuuga, although I rarely use it. Sometimes I'm afraid I'll forget who I am from all the lying I do. Instead I use the name Helena Roy. Helena...the girl said to possess such a magnitude of beauty and because of this, when she was stolen away the Trojan war began. At least that's what the legends say. I'm not into myself at all, but I just happened to like the way the name sounded.
"Mrowwww!" Sprinkles began rubbing up against my leg before I had barely made it through my apartment door. I refilled her food and water dish and decided to turn in early, it had been a long tiring week and all I wanted to do was relax. An envelope on the table caught my eye, my real name scrawled across it in neat handwriting I knew all so well. Well looks like relaxing was out of the question, I had another job. Cursing to myself, I made a point of tidying up around the apartment and taking my time. Finally when there was nothing else for me to do, I picked up the envelope and opened it. What poor bastard did the Syndicate want dead tonight?
Okamimaru~ I know not the most exciting first chapter, but I'm trying something completely new to me. I promise there will be romance, but not till later. I'm attempting to have an actual story. Usually when I write romance, the two main characters meet and there's instant romance/conflict, so mine as well add more to it, no? If you like it, review for a chapter two to be put up. Also I know this is one insane crossover...but I can't choose more than two in fanfiction to show it. Therefore its listed as a Darker Than Black & Naruto crossover.
