(A/N: FIRST ATTEMPT AT A NARUTO FANFIC! oO

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!"

-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-

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.)
