I ran as fast as I could, though I know it is useless. It's obvious my predator is laughing at me right now, not the least bit tired of his pursuit. I push my legs to go faster, but it was useless. It wasn't any use, and yet I kept going.

I didn't know where I was going, and I wasn't going to. The moonless night made everything black. For all I know, my eyes could have been closed, and I would not have been able to tell.

I felt a hard, rough surface hit me on my sweaty forehead. A warm feeling came upon my injury, and I feel liquid dripping down my face. But I couldn't feel any pain; there was too much adrenaline, too much noise. The kind of feeling you'd get if you jump off a plane before activating your parachute. Not that I would know completely. Hyuugas are not seeing participating in such ridiculous events. Regardless, the rush was all that was keeping me from falling apart right now.

"Hey, hey," my predator cooed, "I ain't gonna hurt ya. Just do as I say, and I swear you'll be fine. It will be just as if you have never encountered me." He paused, as if reflecting on his words. "But of course, you have. Not even the world's strongest, smartest, wisest, richest man can defy weight, as I am sure you can relate, right, Lady Hyuuga?" He was referring to my current status of a former heiress. The elders have decided that I was not fit to take over the clan. But how my predator knows this, I have no idea. The Hyuuga clan is very private.

He grabbed my short hair and pulled my head up to look at him. It looked like he had dark hair and a crazy smile. I couldn't breathe. All I could do is huff and pant. not because of my run, but because I'm scared to death of thought of, well, death.

"Now," he continued, "listen carefully. You are going to get outta that elite rich school you go to and transfer to Konoha High. Let the school know that Ryo has already taken care of all the school fees." Before I could explain that my family would never let me attend a school in such a lower-class area, he stopped me, "Give your hardass parents any excuse you need to give. I don't care." Then he let go of my hair, and with a wince, I landed painfully back on my feet.

Straightening up, I tried to feign bravery. "Are you 'Ryo'?" In the place of an answer, I received a wink. Or what I thought was a wink. I couldn't be sure in the dark. "If I go, you will keep my family safe." I tried to keep my tone from sounding pathetic, but he knows I have no choice.

"That's right! So don't screw up." And with that, he disappeared.

I don't remember what happened after this. What had I done to deserve this? I really am a weakling. No wonder I am no longer an heiress, I am useless.

A/N: Hey guys, this is a rewrite for "My Hockey Incubus," a story I wrote in middle school, which was around . . . five years ago. Anyways, I stumbled upon my old writing, and I thought I would do a rewrite and attempt to finish the story. We'll see if people are interested in Naruto GaaHina fanfiction haha.
