Chapter 2: Nani???
"You WHAT???????!!!!" Hiashi's voice howled through the entire city. Neji merely nodded with a blush plastered on his half-stern face. The elder Hyuuga started pondering back and forth, thinking so hard you could almost hear his rants. "The other Sabaku's were witnesses as well," Neji informed. "Were they now," Hiashi finally calmed down a bit and sat behind his desk. "This could be a problem," he said. Neji nodded. Hiashi folded his hands and closed his eyes to a thinking pose.
After some minutes of thinking, he opened them. "Or maybe not… I have an idea. Neji, find Hinata and bring her back here. As for the Sabaku's, they'll know nothing about this meeting. Not just yet," Hiashi ordered and Neji was on his way.
He went back to were he had seen those two fools. (aka Kankuro and Temari) They were long gone, but Neji spotted Hinata and Gaara sitting under a tree as shelter for the pouring rain. He felt his stomach curl and twist as he watched Hinata in Gaaras arms. He really despised the Sabakus, especially him. The sight of Hinata in his arms made him sick. Neji could even hear what they talked about. It wasn't really any of his business but his curiosity got the better half of him.
"I Always noticed how lonely you were, Hinata," Gaara spoke and stroke her hair. "But I guess I was just afraid for this new feeling," he told. She turned to face him. "New feeling?" she asked. He nodded. "I think it was… love. My love for you," He smiled and tucked a strand of hair away that blocked his view. Hinata smiled back and traced his kanji-tattoo with her index-finger. "If people only wanted to know us…," she said with the hint of sadness. "Yeah."
She rolled of his lap and stood up, looking at the pouring rain. "Something wrong?" he asked and stood beside her. She shook her head. "Not really. Nothing else than I will be in serious trouble if anyone finds out," she chuckled. "Because of me?" he put his arms around her and rested his head on her shoulder. "No offence, Gaara." "None taken. People can think what they want, as long it doesn't ruin anything between us," Gaara breathed in her scent.
"You know… I had feelings for you long before this," she softly spoke. Gaara were a little surprised by this. "You did?" She nodded. "The first time I saw you, was actually in the forest of death during the chuunin exam, when you encountered those grass-ninjas. (Gaara mentally curses himself at this moment) I feared you back then, but I saw something in you eyes… that were loneliness. I pitied you and as the years past and you changed, I realised I didn't just pity you anymore. But that I… loved you," she told, holding his hand. "Thank you, Hinata. That must be the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me."
This was where Neji decided to break in by shouting her name. "Hinataaaa!" he made it sound like he was searching for her. "It's Neji!" Hinata panicked. "I'll see you later, Hinata," Gaara kissed her and left in a swirl of sand. "There you are." Neji came out from the bushed, soaked to the bone. He really did feel like a wet cat now, been walking through the forest already three times in one hour. "Hai, Neji-s-san?" she forced a smile to hide her surprise. "Hiashi-sama wants to see you, now." he informed. "Hai. Arigatou Neji-san," She thanked and took course for the Hyuuga estate.
Meanwhile with Gaara:
Never had Gaara imagined himself sneaking into his room to avoid his siblings. His sand was too wet to be used for transportation and only ended up outside the renting-apartment the Hokage had set up for him and his siblings. "Gaara? Is that you?"
Whoopee you! Faith is just So nice to you today, he thought sarcastic.
The red-haired froze at the spot hearing his sister call from the living room. She came with a huge grin plastered on her usual serious face. "Errmm… hi Temari," he greeted nervously, trying to get away. "Okay. You just said hi to me… something's up. Spill it," she dragged him over to the couch and ordered him to sit down while she went to the kitchen. "Nothing's up, Temari," he rose his hands in defence. "Can't I just try to be nice?" Temari came back out again with two cups of tea.
"Normally, I would ask a person that's this cherry and nice if he or she got laid…" This made Gaara choke his tea and coughed. "Buuuut, since it's you I bet it's just that Hyuuga girl, right?" she smirked by seeing her brother turn beat-red. "I don't know what you're talking about, Temari." he tried, his hand shaking as he tried to sip his tea. Seeing his sister not taking the bait, he sighed in defeat. "Fine then… It's her…"
"I KNEW it!!" she threw the cup in victory. Tea was spilled everywhere. "Kankuro!! You owe me ten bucks!" she shouted. "Dang it!" they heard and Kankuro gave Temari ten bucks. "You had a bet!!??" Gaara asked angrily. "Tell. Me. NOW!" he ordered, his siblings sweating in fear.
"Well… you see, Gaara. Kankuro and I had a little…" she tried, fondling with her words. "We, we had a WALK, yes! In the woods!" Kankuro continued.
"Then we spotted you with that Hyuuga girl and and and…."
"We saw you guys kissing! And and,"
"Kankuro and I placed a bet that you would admit it or not once we asked you," Temari finished. Gaara looked like he had seen flying pink elephants… (Picture it!) "You are pathetic…" he went to his room. Kankuro and Temari breathed out in relief. "He took it easier than I thought," the male said. "Yeah. Look at the bright side, Kanky. Our Gaara is in l.o.v-"
"I can still HEAR you!" Gaara shouted from the room.
"You wanted to see me father?" Hinata stepped into her father's office, still dripping wet from the heavy rain. "Yes, Hinata." He put down his pen and smiled to his daughter, even if she looked and smelled like a wet dog, he didn't scold her. This surprised her, first calling her by name then not scolding her for looking as she did. She sat down in front if the desk. "Well, Hinata. Since you now are over 18 and all, I would like to come with a proposal." It wasn't like Hiashi to act like this, at least not smile. Hinata had a bad feeling about this.
"What would you say to find a husband?" The room went dead quiet. Hinata blinked several times to gather what she just had received. "Get married???" she shot up from her seat. "Yes. I think it's a splendid idea," Hiashi smiled again. "Well… don't you think it's too early? I mean, I …" she fondled with her words, not really sure what to say. "Nothing's determined, Hinata. You can relax for the meantime," he told. And relax Hinata did. "I swear he'll give me a heart attack before the end of the year."
What will Hinata do if her father finds her a fiancé???? What will she do? How will she react?
Coming up: Who's the Fiancè??
