Ahahahaha...Okay, I know I suck...xP I haven't written in a long, long time...so...yah...Anyhu, feel free to drop off any "YOUSUCK" comments, I won't blame you. Kekeke...I'd be surprised if anyone gave me a compliment. Now...back to writing...)

Disclaimer: Unfortunately for me, I don't own Naruto. -cries- But fortunately for you, I don't own Naruto. -cheers?- Ahahaha...If I did own Naruto...Wow...The results would probably be very disastrous. oo

"Don't worry, I'll be with you forever! I promise, if I ever turn my back on you, then...well, something bad will happen to me...kinda like a punishment! I promise! Because...Well, that's what friends do, right?"

A young girl nodded slowly, but her tears kept streaming down her face. The boy smiled, gently wiping away her tears with his hand. He gave her a wide grin, "I'm sorry for leaving you in the forest, and I promise I'll never forget you again. So don't cry anymore, 'kay?"

The girl nodded again, "I...I'm sorry...for causing all this trouble...I-It's all my fault..." she said softly, looking down at the ground.

"Nah, it was my fault. I don't blame you for being scared...If I were alone in a forest that big, I'd be crying too," he grinned wider, "Tell you what, from now on, we're going to be best friends! C'mon, Hinata-chan, let's be best friends!"

Hinata gave Sasuke a small smile. She looked up at him and nodded again. Sasuke blinked. Then, he grinned again, a happy grin. He took Hinata's hand and held it high above their heads. "I promise, from this day on, I'll always be there for you...Forever!"


The vow did not last. They slowly grew apart, forgetting eachother, and forgetting their promise. Sasuke became almost the opposite of his old self...instead of being a cheerful, warm-hearted boy, he was cold, mysterious, and silent. Hinata's friendship with Sasuke was soon lost when Uzumaki Naruto came into her life. Their knowledge of eachother's existance grew faint; Hinata only knew Uchiha Sasuke has the popular boy that practically half of Konoha's female population was attracted to; Sasuke only thought of Hyuuga Hinata as a shy girl. There was no bond between them, not even the slightest. And to them, there never was.

(A/N: Ahahaha! This chapter's so short...! It's kinda stupid too, I told you I suck.)
