Chapter 10

Hinata's Diary

The Final Fantasy

Disclaimer:

Tsunade: Well since I'm the Hokage. The authoress has honored me with the most important disclaimer…the last one. So k9puppyg does not own Naruto. She doesn't own the song real emotion either. Now that is out of the way, we have to settle the deal.

K9puppyg: Fine…Here's your alcoholic beverage. Now, on with the story.

"What is it that you want to talk to me about Naruto-kun?" ,Hinata asked hopefully. They were standing over the pond.

"About your surprise…It kind of got destroyed." He dug into his pocket and pulled out a lavender flower, rather flat looking.

"Ano…That's okay. You didn't have to get me anything." She closed her eyes and taking a deep breath she stated, "I only want one thing from you."

"What's that?" He asked amused. Pausing quizzically, Hinata just decided to ask.

"Well I thought maybe you'd know, since you read it."

"Read what?" He asked officially dumbfounded.

"…My diary." She watched him ponder into deep thought.

"Oh yeah! But I didn't read it. Ayame-neesan snatched it away before I could really look at it." He elaborated.

"…She did." She said menacingly.

"Yeah why?"

"She told me a whole different story."

"I don't understand why she would."

"Because, she tried to trick me. That wicked she-devil! She knew I would tell you that I loved you! Of course because you already knew! But that's not the case. Because you didn't read it! It all makes sense now." Then she just realized that,

One: She was rambling.

Two: She was not alone.

Most importantly

Three: She just confessed her love to Naruto. Technically… indirectly.

"Wait, did I just hear you correctly Hinata?" He turned to face her, a look of questioning in his eyes, she noted. Taking another deep breath,

"Yes, Naruto-kun. I can't hold it in any longer. I've waited for approximately seven years to tell you! I love you Uzumaki Naruto." Tears started to roll down her cheeks as she looked down at her feet. Should she have told him? What if she was rejected? She felt very good in a way also. She didn't chicken out. After holding it in all this time she felt a great weight being lifted off of her shoulders. She noticed he hasn't said anything. So she looked up again to find his back facing her again. Was he mad at her? Sad? Embarrassed? Shocked? Say something!! She heard his voice,

"Is that true, Hinata?" He questioned.

"Yes, with all my heart." The next thing she knew she was embraced into a tight hug. Then, he let her go, much to her disappointment.

"You, finally told me after all these years. Now that I know…" He got down on one knee and reached into his pocket. She gasped. "Will you marry me?" He held a velvet box with a diamond that was shaped like a heart, with two smaller tanzanite gems that complimented the larger stone between them. She stared, and then she started to giggle. Once again Naruto was dumfounded. "What's so funny?"

"S-sorry," she stuttered trying to control her giggling "But we haven't even gone on a date yet." Naruto realized she was right.

"Well, I don't know much about these kinds of things. But what I do know is that we're both nineteen. So we're getting married okay!?!?" Naruto pouted.

"But you can't do that!" She explained.

"Why not? Don't you want to get married?"

"Well, yeah, sure. But we have to make the wedding plans, inform everybody, and get my father's blessings. Like I stated before, we haven't even gone on a date! Also, we have to get you a Harley Davidson!" Naruto pondered this for a second and shrugged. He put the ring on her finger and kissed her.

"Don't you think I've done that already Hinata? Seriously, you freak out too much. As for the date thing…Well that was the real birthday surprise. It was a joke Hinata… ", He paused, "Did you say Harley Davidson?"

"Heh, uh…funny thing, you see…yeah I did…"She replied, blushing from embarrassment.

"Hinata, you are truly, weird. But I guess that's why I chose you." He stated as he put his arm around her shoulder. She just smiled up at him.

"But we still have to date for at least a month Naruto-kun." She muttered.

"What ever makes you happy."

Meanwhile…

The Hokage was on the stage throwing a fit. There was a huge hole in the west side of the area, two of the ninjas that were supposed to be performing have frolicked off somewhere, and Shizune was nowhere to be found!

"Tsunade-sama!" There she is.

"Shizune! Where are Naruto and Hinata!?" She fumed. The festival was not turning out too well.

"Uh…" 'Should I tell her?' She thought. Then at that moment, the real actors decided to arrive.

"WHAT. Are you guys doing here?" Tsunade snapped. No, not her fingers..

"Didn't this miss-" Shizune took this time to glare at him "um, Shizune-san tell you?"

"Tell me what, Shizune?" She looked over at Shizune for an explanation.

"Well, these guys called a little while after you called the replacements. They said they felt bad for quitting just because you beat them. So they said they would come. But they told me not to tell you, so it was a whole mess." She sighed exasperatedly.

"So you mean to tell me that Iruka is not your boyfriend?" Tsunade asked.

"Well, heh yeah of course he's not." Shizune replied.

"Well you guys can go ahead and set up for the play. I'll go and find Iruka so I can get you two together Shizune." With that Tsunade was off and so were the actors, leaving Shizune to collect her thoughts and run after her boss.

With Shikamaru…

He was lying under a tree since climbing up it was too troublesome.

"SHIKAMARU!" A high pitched shrill echoed the area.

'uh-oh.' That voice sounded all too familiar.

"Ugh…Hey Temari." Shkamaru didn't sound all too thrilled.

"SHIKAMARU!" Another high pitched shrill came from another part of the area.

Ino and Temari both came to a halt in front of said boy.

"What are you doing hanging around her?" They both said in unison while pointing at each other…in unison.

"You two came at the same time."

"LIAR!" They screeched.

"Don't forget Shikamaru. You are supposed to be escorting me to the festival." Ino stated all too triumphantly.

"Well actually Ino I-".

"You see Ino. Shikamaru doesn't want to go to the festival with you." Temari cut him off.

"Really, that's actually not the cas-"

"See? He does want me to go with him because he needs me. I'm the one he should be with at the festival instead of some girl from a foreign sand village!" Ino cut him off that time.

"Um, actually I-"

"He doesn't need you! He has me. A loyal, trustworthy ninja, who came all the way from the sand village just to go this festival with him,." Temari cut him off again.

"Um, really I-"

"He doesn't need you! Right Shika-kun?" Ino didn't get a response, "Shika?"

Indeed Shikamaru was nowhere in sight.

Where was he?

In The Tree…

Shikamaru was sitting in that very tree that was too troublesome to climb. But he decided trying to explain him self to two very troublesome kunoichis was even more troublesome. So, being the lazy ninja he lived up to be, he fell asleep.

With Neji…

He was sitting on the grass when he heard some footsteps. He looked up and he saw Lee.

"Neji-san, why are you not expressing your power of youth with Tenten-san? You know she is looking for you." Lee started.

"Really…" He said all too casually, okay so it was sarcasm.

"Yes, she says she wants you to watch their performance for the talent show."

"I'll come…later." Neji replies.

"Okay." Then Lee pauses hearing some footsteps. Neji never looking up from the ground assumed that it was Lee leaving at first, but then he later realized that the footsteps were getting louder. He looked up and yes, it was Tenten.

"Neji! I've been looking all over for you! Come on! I want you to see us perform!" Then she pulls him off the ground and they scurried away. Neji, was actually being dragged. No seriously, he was being dragged. Lee just watched. Ping! His shiny teeth pinged, seriously.

Sakura…

She was looking for her group because they were second to go up on stage. The talent show started right after the play too, and the play was almost over. They haven't rehearsed. Heck, they weren't even dressed yet! The boys were lucky because they didn't have to go on until later. So she was walking around hearing some shouting. Indeed. Teamari and Ino were still screaming at each other. Instead of interfering she just abducted her. 'One down, two to go' she thought.

"Sakura! Ino!" they turned hearing their names being called. It was Tenten!'Well she found us.'

"Now we just need to find…uh, who's that?" She pointed at a thing…that Tenten was holding. Ino screamed.

"EW! Tenten! Don't play with giant toads! Put it down!" Then she kicked it.

"Oof!" The thing replied. Ino screamed again.

"That's not a toad! That's Neji!" Tenten exclaimed.

"That's Neji?" Sakura replied.

"He's gotten uglier since I last saw him. Maybe we should give him a bath." Ino stated.

"NO! There's no need!" Just then as if it were magic, Neji was back to normal. There was one thing he'd never let a girl do…A makeover. Why? You ask? Well he doesn't want his gorgeous hair to be ruined. Seriously, his hair had to be washed four times a day.

"Okay…Now like I was saying, we need to find Hinata now."

So they started on their search. Guess what? They eventually found her. She was still on the bridge with Naruto. They were talking. It was so peaceful. The lily pads in the pond, just floating about. Complimenting the sakura trees above…

"HINATA! WE HAVE TO GO PERFORM!" Tenten shouted.

"Way to kill the mood…" Naruto muttered to Hinata. So, he hugged her and she left, telling him to come watch her.

The girls…

They were in the dressing room. Getting dressed into their stage outfits and rehearsing a bit. They had about ten minutes until they had to go on stage. Yeah, they were calm……………..screw that. They were running around like madmen. Seriously, they were wrecks. It didn't help when Shizune came in and told them the first people were to go on stage. Sakura then stated.

"Okay, we need to calm down." Everybody took a deep breath.

"Ino can you help me with this?" Tenten asked.

"Sure." She replied. Tenten wanted her to help with her hair. Sakura spotted Hinata sitting in the corner of the room. Sakura walked over.

"Are you okay?" She asked.

"I can't go on that stage." She replied. There was no way she was going to embarrass herself.

"Huh? Why not!? You have to! You have a whole verse!!!"

"Why do I have to sing the verse?"

"What? Hinata doesn't want to sing?" Now everyone was interested.

"You have to sing. Your voice matches the best with the original. And, don't you want Naruto to hear you sing?" Ino piped in. This left Hinata thinking.

"But what if I mess up? There are so many people out there…"

"Just think we are playing the game. They cheer in the game don't they?"

"I guess so…"

Shikamaru…

Shikamaru was waiting in the audience. He had used the time when Temari and Ino were distracted by Sakura to get out of the tree. So…no he wasn't actually asleep.

The first people were two girls…square dancing. He wasn't too fond of the square dancing. He never did it in the academy. It was too troublesome. That's probably why no one wanted to be his partner, he pondered. Pushing that thought aside, Sasuke, Neji, and Naruto had settled there selves next to him. Good thing he didn't have to go on till later. He was about to drift off if Naruto hadn't said anything.

"I wonder what the girls are gonna do. I mean, they were so secretive about it." He had said.

"I know what you mean. It makes you quite curious." That was Neji.

"All we can do is wait now." That was Shikamaru.

"Hn." Yeah that was Sasuke. He had to be the last one to say something.

The…Girls.

All the girls were ready. That's why we cut to the guys talking, duh. So Shizune came in and said they were to go on the stage in two minutes. So they took this time to replay what they were going to do again.

"Hinata remember to walk in the middle when it's your turn to sing your verse." Sakura reminded. She, in turn nodded.

"Ino remember to chime in with Tenten on that part. Also remember to walk in the middle with your verse. Tenten, you and I sing the part when Hinata and Ino finish their verses. Good?" Everybody nodded. "Now let's show the crowd how to not square dance!"

"Sakura, what's up with all the lame dialogue? I mean, you've been saying lame things through the whole story." Ino was curious.

"Hey, don't blame me. I just follow the script."

Just then Shizune came in.

"You girls ready?" They all nodded and made their way onto the stage.

On stage…

All the lights were off .

"What can I do for you?" All four girls started off. The music started to play.

"What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?" Tenten and Sakura sang. Then the lights flashed on, revealing the four girls in this order: Tenten, Hinata, Ino and Sakura.

"I can hear you" Ino and Tenten sang.

"What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?" Tenten and Sakura sang again. While Ino walked into the front of the stage. Hinata scooted over to the middle of the girls, behind Ino.

"Far beyond hazy borders of my heart

I could see a place," Ino started. The other three were dancing in the back.

"That's something like this," Sakura chimed in with Ino.

Ino started to sing again,

"Every now and then I don't know what to do.

Still I know that I,"

Sakura chimed in again.

"Can never go back,"

"But the things I've seen in those hazy dreams

Can't compare to what I'm seeing now

Everything's so different

That it brings me to my knees"

"And though I know the world of real emotion has surrounded me

I won't give into it

Now I know that forward is the only way my heart can go

I hear your voice calling out to me:" Hinata sang

"You'll never be alone" All four girls sang.

"What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?" Sakura and Tenten sang. While Ino and Hinata switched places.

"I can hear you" Ino and Tenten sang.

"What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?" Sakura and Tenten sang again.

"I don't plan on looking back on my old life

I don't ever plan,"

"To rely on you," Sakura chimed in with Hinata.

"Even if by chance everything should go wrong

You'd come anyway and,"

"Try to save me," Sakura chimed in again.

"Cause the truth I'm seeking

Always was inside of me." Sakura switched places with Hinata.

"And when I find the world of real emotion has surrounded me

The many things that you thought me then

Will always be enough to get me through the pain

Because of you I am strong enough to know I'm not alone."

Tenten walked up with Sakura, while Ino and Hinata scooted out a little.

"What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?" Tenten and Sakura sang.

"What can I do for you?" Ino walked up. Tenten and Sakura were still singing.

"I can hear you." Ino and Tenten sang. Hinata joined them.

"And if I find the real world of emotion has surrounded me

And I can't go on

You are there the moment that I close my eyes to comfort me

We are connected for all of time

I'll never be…" Hinata sang

"And though I know the world of real has surrounded me

I won't give in to it

Now I know that forward is the only way my heart can go

I hear your voice calling out to me:" Tenten sang

"You'll never be alone." They all sang.

"What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?" Sakura and Tenten sang.

"I can hear you." Tenten and Ino sang.

"What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?

What can I do for you?" Tenten and Sakura sang again.

"I can hear you." Tenten and Ino sang once more.

"I can hear you." They all finished.

The music stopped and the crowd went crazy. The four girls took a bow. Hinata could hear Naruto calling her name.

"Hinata! Hinata! Hinata!"

"Hinata!"

Hinata jumped up out of bed and fell onto the floor.

"That dream again…" She was in her bedroom when Naruto walked in the door.

"Hinata you overslept again…let me guess. You had that dream again?" Hinata nodded tiredly.

"Aren't you tired of that dream? I mean, you could dream about the day we went swimming in ramen..."

"…" She just looked at him. Why was she supposed to dream that? That was his favorite day, not hers. "…Don't you have to get to work dear?"

"Okay, okay. But I'll be waiting for you in the office." Naruto left.

Yes, Naruto become the Hokage when he was twenty-one. It was the day after they got married. Yeah, they actually didn't get married until two years later. Guess what? Two years after that, they had a little boy…that they named Ichiraku, he was now six years old. Hinata wanted to name him after the fourth…but no, he insisted. But now he was with Sakura and her kids. She had married Sasuke a little while after she and Naruto got married. What about the others you ask? Well, since Hinata had married the Hokage. She had to leave the title for heiress to Hanabi. Naruto made sure there was no branch family anymore. So the sealing jutsu was no longer used. This gave Neji and Tenten the right to get engaged. Shikamaru got married out of his own will with Ino. But he had learned to like Ino, but he also had to suffer the wrath of Temari. But now Hinata had to get to work with Naruto. It was all she ever wrote about in her diary. By the way, where was it?

Uchiha residence…

Little Ichiraku was playing with Shizuke and Shuzuri. They were twins and they were seven years old. Shizuke threw the ball to Ichiraku, but he threw it too hard and he knocked Ichiraku down. A small book fell out of Ichiraku's pocket.

"What's that?" Shizure asked. She was the interrogative one. She had black hair like her father, and green eyes like her mother.

"Well, it's a book, duh." Shizuke liked to make his sister look dumb. It was fun to him. But he never really talked that much otherwise. He also had Sasuke's black hair and he also had his onyx eyes.

"I'll open it." Ichiraku volunteered. Ichiraku had his father's blonde hair, but he had the Byakugan eyes.

Hey, why did it have his mother's name on it?
