First off, NO FLAMES PLEASE! If you don't like the story, then don't review. My weak heart cannot take the abuse of flamers.
I do not own Naruto nor will I ever…I do wish that I did though!
There will probably be some grammar mistake so don't hate me for it, please.
Lastly, please review. I live for reviews!
Please note- In this fic, the entire rookie 9 are 17 years old. Gai's students are 18 since they are a year older. Also, since they are older, I made Hinata lose her stutter since I figured that she grew out of that. Also, there will be some lime in here so be prepared for it. A lemon will not be in here, and if there is a lemon, it will only be shown by e-mail.
Angel of Mine– Chapter One If This Is A Dream, Don't Wake Me UpInside Konoha Forest
A body could be seen, sitting beside a tree that surrounded the training ground. Every movement he made looked agonizing. The only sound that could be heard was the heavy breathing from that one person.
'Damn it! I over did it again! I can barely move my body.' Sasuke thought as he looked around him in search for a certain blond.
'Where is he? Did he leave already?' He thought as he tried to get up, but failed.
"Damn dobe! The one time I need him and he suddenly disappears!" Sasuke yelled as he clinched his fist in pain.
The light from the moon was starting to fade, as the wind grew colder. Sasuke shook from the drop of temperature. He wore his usual black training attire, which did nothing for warmth.
"Great, now I'm going to freeze to death." Sasuke exclaimed as he rubbed his arms to warm himself.
A drop of water hit his nose. As he looked up towards the sky, he saw a dark cloud covering half of the sky. It began to sprinkle. As minutes pass, the sprinkle turned into heavy rain.
'Great, now it's raining. What am I going to do now?' He thought as he looked up towards the sky.
His bruised and battered body couldn't handle the pain any longer. Before he passed out, he saw a someone's face over his, but due to the darkness, he couldn't tell whom the person was.
"Who are you?" Sasuke said as his eyes began to blur.
Sasuke's body fell limp as he fell into unconsciousness.Sasuke's Rescuers Apartment
A female figure can be seen sitting in a chair beside the bed in which Sasuke laid. Soft hands wipes Sasuke's forehead with a cold, wet towel. Making sure he is comfortable, the figure gets up and raises the blanket to Sasuke's neck.
Sasuke opens his eyes to meet a pair of white pearl eyes.
'Is she an angel?' He thought as he shook his head to clear his fogged up mind. He wanted to touch his angels face, but his body wouldn't listen to his plea.
'If this is a dream, don't wake me up.' He thought.
Her blue-black hair brushed against her cheek and all Sasuke wanted to do was to brush her hair away from her face. His eyes sight still hasn't adjusted to their original form. As his vision cleared, he finally realized who his angel was.
It was the girl that he took a small liking to a few months ago. It was the girl that didn't pay him any attention, the girl that he dubbed his. Hyuuga Hinata. Of course, no one knew that Hinata belonged to him, not even Hinata herself.
Her voice brought him back to reality.
"Are you feeling alright, Uchiha-san?" She asked with a worry look on her face.
'You always did worry about everyone, Hinata-chan.' He thought as he looked into her eyes.
"I'm fine." He said coldly.
She nodded and pressed her right hand on top of his forehead.
"You still have a fever. You should rest. I already took care of your cuts. The bandages need to be changed twice a day." She said as she took her hand away from his face.
Sasuke looked at her with no expression on his face.
"Hinata-san, why are you in my apartment?" He asked as he watches Hinata sit down beside him.
"Actually, Uchiha-san, this is my apartment, not yours." Hinata explained as she pointed to a few picture frames around her bed to prove that the apartment belonged to her.
"I see. Why am I here?" He said as he tried to sit up.
Hinata pushed on Sasuke's shoulder and made him lay back down. Reaching for a towel that was in a bowl of cold water near the nightstand, she began to dab his forehead.
"I was walking around the training ground in search for a few herbs when I heard someone breathing heavily a few feet away from me. When I went towards the sound, I found you on the verge of fainting." She said as she continued to dab his brow with the wet cloth.
He frowns when he heard her say, "fainting."
"I didn't faint." He said as he pushed her hand away from his face with much difficulty.
Although the cold feel of the towel felt good, he couldn't let her see him in such a pathetic state.
'She would think that I'm a weakling or something because of this damn fever.' He thought as he once again pushed her hand away when she tried to wipe his brow.
"Uchiha-san please let me take care of you. You are in no state to go home just yet." Hinata said as she tried to push his hand away from hers.
"I don't need any help, especially from a weakling like you." He said coldly.
He immediately regretting say that when he saw a flicker of hurt in her pearl white eyes.
"Damn it, Sasuke bastard! You didn't have to be mean to Hinata-chan! And here she is taking care of your ungrateful ass!" Naruto yelled from the doorway.
"Dobe? What are you doing here?" Sasuke asked as he glared at him.
"I always come to Hinata's house after training. She makes the best ramen ever. It's even better then the Ichiraku Ramen bar!" Naruto said as he rubbed his filled stomach.
Sasuke frowned when Naruto explained that he visits Hinata every single day.
'The dobe is too close to her for my taste.' He thought as he stared at Naruto.
Hinata took this chance to put a wet cloth on Sasuke's forehead. As he was about to take it off, she used her hand to stop him.
"Although you don't want my help, you are going to get it. It is my duty as a medic-nin to take care of those in need." She said as she slapped Sasuke's hand away from the towel.
"I'm fine. Don't worry too much." He said as he stared at Hinata's face.
"You have a very high fever, Uchiha-san. It is best that you don't move around too much. Just stay here until the coast is clear." She said as she remoistens his towel.
"If you don't listen to her, Sasuke, I'm going to personally force you to stay in bed." Naruto said as he rubbed his hand against each other.
"Like you can do that dobe. Even in my sicken state, I can easily defeat you." Sasuke said confidently.
As Naruto was about to jump on Sasuke, Hinata pushed Naruto back.
"Please, Naruto-kun. Uchiha-san is sick. Don't agitate him. He might get worst." Hinata pleaded.
Naruto turned his back from the two.
"I don't know why you are helping the bastard. He has been nothing but a pain in the ass." Naruto exclaimed.
"Speak for yourself, baka." Sasuke said as he felt his eyes drupe a little.
"You should just kick him out, Hinata-chan. He doesn't deserve your kindness. You let him have your bed and the only thing he does is insult you." Naruto said as he glared at Sasuke.
Sasuke smiled inwardly.
'Her bed, huh. No wonder it smells so good around here. Her blankets absorbed her heavenly smell.' He thought as he took a deep breath.
"Naruto-kun, let's just let Uchiha-san rest." She said as she gently pushed Naruto out the bedroom door.
"Alright. I have to go anyway. Iruka-sensei needed to talk to me about something." He said as he and Hinata walked towards the front door.
"I'll see you tomorrow, Naruto-kun." She said as she smiled at him.
"Good night, Hinata-chan. If Sasuke does anything inappropriate, you tell me, alright? I'll take care of him for you." He said as he smiled at her.
"I'll do that. Bye bye." She said as she closed the door.
She went back into her bedroom to see Sasuke already asleep. She left a bottle of medicine and a glass of water on the nightstand just in case Sasuke needed it. As she was about to leave, she brushed his bangs behind his ears.
"Goodnight, Uchiha-san. I hope you feel better soon." She said as she closed the bedroom door.
"I already do." Sasuke said as he let sleep overtake him.THE NEXT MORNING
Sasuke woke up in the crack of dawn. His fever was gone now and his body felt like a million dollars.
Sitting up, he notices his clothing lay out on the chair beside him. Getting up, he took his clothes and got dress. After using the bathroom to brush his hair and rinse his mouth, he walked towards the living room.
He saw midnight colored hair on the arm of the couch and walked towards the person laying on it. When he looked down, he held his breath at the lovely sight before him. There was Hinata, lying on her left side. Her head was cradled on her left arm. Her right arm was lying next to her face. Sasuke felt a sense of warmth in his chest as he stared at her innocent form.
'She doesn't know how attractive she is.' He thought as his gaze roamed over her body.
Her body was visible to him since the blankets were kicked off of her. She wore baby blue short shorts that showed a lot of her leg. She also wore a white t-shirt that hugged her torso in the most appealing way. Sasuke couldn't help but admire her body.
He held some affection for her ever since the first time he looked into her eyes. Her eyes held purity and innocents that no one else had. That was when he started to believe in angels, because how could angels not exist if she was walking on the earth.
He smiled when she sighed in her sleep.
'She's different from the other girls of Konoha.' He thought.
She didn't seem to be the type to be into her looks or loud as the other girls, and that's what drew Sasuke to her. Of course, the first time that he notices her, she was focused on his loud mouth teammate.
'What does she see in the dobe?" He thought as he continued to stare at her.
He looked away when she stared to wake up.
Noticing Sasuke was awake; Hinata got up from the couch and touched his cheek and forehead, not noticing his small blush at her close contact.
"You seem better. How are you feeling?" She asked as she took her hands away from him.
"Good." He said as he stared at her.
"Do you want some breakfast?" She asked as she stared at him to.
"Yes." He said as he looked away from her.
"Alright then. Why don't you wait here, Uchiha-san? I'll freshen up and then prepare breakfast for us." She said as she ran towards the bathroom before he could say anything.
When she left the bathroom, she smiled at him before she entered the kitchen.
He noticed that she had no family pictures around except for a few that had Neji in them.
'She doesn't seem to be close to her family, besides Neji.' He thought as he gazed at the living room.
'Everything is so clean.' He thought as he saw how organized the living room was.
Feeling bored, Sasuke walked into the kitchen to watch Hinata cook. She was stirring a pot when he entered. Walking behind her, he gazed into the pot to notice that she made a hearty stew.
He frowned a little when she tense up from his close contact.
"The stew is almost done, Uchiha-san. Why don't you sit down?" She asked as she directed him towards the table.
He sat down and watched as Hinata started to serve him. He smiled at the domestic picture.
"You can call me by my first name. Uchiha-san makes me sound old." He said as he took one of the bowls away from her hands.
"Okay." She said as she sat in one of the chairs.
They started to eat, but was interrupted by some yelling and knocking from outside the front door.
"I'll go get the door, Sasuke-san." She said as she left the table to get the door.
As she unlocked the door, the door flew open and two girls ran into her home. Hinata could only make out a blond and pink blur.
"SASUKE-KUN!" The girls yelled.
Hinata entered the kitchen to a hilarious sight. Ino and Sakura both had one of Sasuke's arms. The girls were yelling at one another as they both pulled on Sasuke's arms. Sasuke, however, looked beyond mad.
"WOULD YOU BOTH LET ME GO!" He screamed as he pulled his arms away from the two.
Hinata then notices the mess on the floor. It seems that when the girls jumped on Sasuke, they hit the table causing the bowls filled with stew to fall to the ground.
As Ino, Sakura were once again hanging on Sasuke, Hinata took this time to clean up the mess.
"Why didn't you come to my house, Sasuke-kun? I wouldn't have mind taking care of you." Ino said as she hugged Sasuke from behind.
"Don't touch him, Ino pig! Anyway, he would come to me first before he comes to you!" Sakura screamed as she tried to pull Ino's arms away from Sasuke.
"What did you say, Forehead girl?" Ino yelled as she let go of Sasuke to argue with Sakura.
Sasuke sighed as he stepped away from the girls. He turned towards Hinata, only to notice that she wasn't there. Looking down, he finally saw the mess the two girls made, and his angel was actually cleaning it up.
He walked over to Hinata and grabbed the sponge away from her hands.
"Sasuke-san?" Hinata said as she gazed at him confusingly.
"You shouldn't clean up the mess those two made." He said coldly.
"It's alright, really. It was an accident. They didn't mean to make a mess." She said as she tried to pry the sponge away from Sasuke, only to fail.
"That doesn't matter. They made the mess, they clean it." He said as he walked towards the two.
"Sakura, Ino." Sasuke said as he watched the two turns towards him.
"Yes, Sasuke-kun?" They said as they stared at him lovingly.
"Give me your hands and close your eyes." He said unemotionally.
'He wants to touch my hand! This is so cool!' Both girls thought as they closed their eyes and stuck out their hands.
They both felt something rectangle and wet in their hands. As they open them, they saw two green sponges.
"Why did you give us sponges, Sasuke-kun?" Ino asked.
Sasuke walked towards Hinata and stood beside her.
"You both are to clean Hinata's floor. Don't stop until you can see your faces on the tile." He said as he nudges Hinata through the kitchen door.
"Why do we have to clean it?" Sakura asked.
Sasuke narrowed his eyes on the girls.
"You both made a mess. Not only did you spill the stew, but you broke Hinata's bowls." He stated as he stared at the mess.
The girls finally notice the mess they made. They both felt bad that they made such a mess, especially if the mess was made in Hinata's house. Both the girls liked Hinata a lot since she was the only one that didn't hit on their Sasuke-kun.
Getting on their knees, they began to scrub the floor. They both hated to clean, but since Sasuke was the one that asked them to, they were willing to clean anything.
Sasuke walked out of the kitchen to see Hinata next a window. The sunlight made her body shine in a pure way, and Sasuke couldn't help but be in awe of her beauty.
"A true angel." Sasuke whispered.
"What was that, Sasuke-bastard." A voice said behind him.
Sasuke turns towards the voice to see his annoying blond teammate.
"Why are you here dobe?" He asked.
"I promise Hinata that I would help her with her kunai throwing accuracy." He said as Hinata walked towards him.
"She asked you? Are you kidding me?" Sasuke said.
"What the hell is that suppose to mean!?" Naruto yelled.
"She would learn more from me then she would learn from you." Sasuke exclaimed.
"Yeah, well she asked me, not you." Naruto stated as he looked at Hinata.
Hinata stood before the two and looked at them in confusion.
'Naruto-kun has only been here for a minute and already the two are arguing with each other.' Hinata thought.
"I'm coming anyway. It's best that I keep my eye on you just in case you give her some half ass advice." Sasuke stated as he looked towards Hinata to see if she would decline the offer.
"That's okay with me. How about you, Naruto-kun?" Hinata asked as she stared at Naruto.
"Might as well. I don't want him to stay here and root threw your panties when we are away." Naruto exclaimed as he led Hinata outside her apartment.
Hinata blushed at that statement, looking at Sasuke to see how he would react. She notices how he blushed.
"I wouldn't do anything like that. You are the pervert of the group, dobe!" He yelled.
Actually, Sakura was the pervert of the group. He found her countless of times hiding in his home peeking at him as he changed clothes. Now a days, Sasuke makes sure to check each corner of his apartment before he showered.
"I am not! I would never do something as indecent as that, especially to Hinata!" Naruto yelled.
"Sure, dobe." Sasuke said.
"I telling the truth, bastard." Naruto yelled.
"I know you are." Sasuke said.
"I am!" Naruto yelled.
"Are you trying to convince me, or yourself?" Sasuke asked.
Naruto turned his back on Sasuke and took a hold of Hinata's hand. Sasuke, seeing this, made a grab for Hinata's other hand. Hinata blushed at the attention she was getting as both boys walked with her towards the training ground, both glaring at each other.
All of them seem to forget about the two girls back at Hinata's apartment whom were scrubbing Hinata's floor clean. Or maybe they didn't care.
Note: I'm not really pleased with this fic. I think it sort of sucks. It didn't flow right for me. What do you think?
Anyway, hope you review…please review…please.
