To the dear reader's of Love Hurts, Lust Hurts More,
I want to apologize for my lack of update and horrible ending of the story but I read this story and found that I did not really like it which has made it difficult to put the final chapter. I plan on doing a rewrite that will be more in sync with the Naruto time line (I watched it again recently and seen how off I was) and will be at least three times as good as the original, after I have completed the rewrite I will continue with the sequel.
Disclaimer: I don't own anything, sorry, wish I did but don't.
Love Hurts, Lust Hurts More
Chapter Nine: Ready? Fight!
A booming laugh comes from Gaara, sending shivers down Hinata's back, her nerve falters, just for a second, but Neji's image pushes her fear back again, he's counting on me!
So the fight begins...
"Byakugan," an eminently amount of chakra awakens Hinata's sight beyond all others. Her focus is on the red headed demon carrier and only him. She races, more fierce than ever before, towards the other.
Gaara makes no move as the girl comes at him, her speed steadily picking up as she runs. She strikes, the sand coming up to meet the attack, she jumps back and charges again. Hinata goes to strike again, once, twice, three times, all deflected by golden sand.
Hinata jumps back, the youngest sand nin turning onto the offensive, a large wave of sand crashes where she was seconds ago. Another wave of sand comes her way, she dodges to the side, the Hyuuga heiress gasps as the sand follows her, keeping her on the constant move. The one big wave of sand breaks off to four tendrils, making the pale girl worry. A hand flies out, grabbing the small girl's ankle pulling her to the ground, a secont later the sand that was following her crashes into a tree making it sway. Blonde hair and an orange jumpsuit came into view, but there is no time for a hello emedietly Hinata has to roll out of the way of another attack.
"What the hell is going on!?" The brash question is undoubtfully asked by Naruto, and much like most things the blue eyed boy says it is ignored, and the battle continues.
While Gaara are in a game of cat and mouse, another battle has been finished.
The oldest ninja from the sand can no longer lift her weapon, it being to heavy without chakra. The fight ended even before it began. Now the two ninja stand facing another, Temari wondering if the other is gonna attack while she is weak and Shino staying alert just in case the blond before him has something else up her sleeve.
Kiba and Kankuro's battle is no less than interesting, Kiba has managed to crush Kankuro's puppet Kuroari but has been injured himself.
Hinata is still on the run, but now instead of running away from Gaara, she is heading streight for him. Hinata leaps into a tree just before the sand wielder, though sadly her plan did not work, the sand stops just short before Gaara and bolts up towards her. Hinata gets just a glance at the smug looking kazekage, he doesn't even make a move as the sand chases her down like an animal, just stands there arms crossed over his chest, teal eyes on her retreating form.
"Stay out of this," Gaara tells Naruto when he tries to intervien for a second time.
"Enough!" The bellow was not from Naruto, it was feminine, a woman's voice but not a sound had left Hinata's lips and the same went for Temari, no it was the hokage.
All stopped what they were doing instead opting to stare at the furies, big-breasted woman.
"I demand to know what is going on here," There is fire burning those amber eyes.
Shino is the first to talk, having to clear his throat first.
"It seems that the Kazekage has been harrassing Hinata, and has even went far enough to threaten to hurt a member of her family, we found the best way to solve the problem is to allow her to face him." Shino says logically in his monotone, adjusting his glasses a bit.
"Is this some kind of joke, the Kazekage is an alley of ours I don't believe he would throw that away to harrass one of our ninjas!" Hinata flinched at the hokage's harsh words, Tsunade is a wonderful hokage but of cource she would take Gaara's side, and for this Hinata could not blame her.
"I-I," Hinata takes a moment to compose herself, everyones attention on her," Maybe I o-over reacted."
"What?!" Kiba looks absolutely furious.
Hinata looks towards the kazakage.
"I apologize for trou-troubling you," she bows.
"Good, now for the reason I'm here, Neji has requested your presents," there is a gasp, and even Shino looks shocked at the words just spoken. "Kazekage you may continue on your way, as for you Shino, Kiba, Naruto, go home I will call for you later today."
Soon it is just the Hyuuga heir and Kazekage left in front of the building, everyone else waiting to take the exams having not shown up yet or waiting inside.
"Where's Neji?" Hinata questions.
"He is in the hospital," That's the only answer before Tsundae turns her back to the younger ninja and starts to walk away, Hinata follows. "I'm sorry," It was a silent walk until the hospital came into view, "I know what has happened, what the Kazekage has put you through but right now we need the allience."
"I understand," Tsunade froze at Hinata's words, she turned to face the teen.
"Thank you, I promise he can no longer bother you he is to go home right after the exams, but to make sure there is no more harm you cannot participate," The hokage's smirk turns into a frown, Hinata smiles reassuringly.
"I'll win it next time."
I want to ay sorry again for the crappy ending, I'll do better next time, promise!!
