A/N: OMG I'M SO SORRY I HAVEN'T UPDATED IN 2 MONTHS! I bet you all of forgotten this story. T.T I hope not, but if so… Anyway, I have a goal to make. I have 30 reviews up to date. If I could get at least 90 reviews by the end of this fanfic, I'll be very grateful. So for you non-reviewers, please review anyway!

---And then there was chapter 10--

--With Neji and Tenten--

It seems love was in the air everywhere in the school.

"Wow, I didn't think Naruto and Sasuke liked each other like that…" Tenten muttered, watching the scene in front of her, a bit shaken up.

"It was obviously fate that decided this. Or else, they'd still be out there, thinking they're the loneliest boys in the world," Neji explained to his date. He sneered while talking, since his roommates were taking Tenten's attention away from him.

"Yosh! But is not their young love refreshing?" Lee popped up, striking a good-guy pose and a flashing smile.

"Weren't you saying they scarred your youth earlier?" Neji questioned, folding his arms.

"…Yosh! But is not their-"

"I heard you the first time." Neji cut him off.

Lee stayed quiet for a few moments then asked, "Are you two on a date?"

"Oh! That's right, Lee-kun. I'm sorry, Neji, but the commotion distracted me…" Tenten said, trailing off. "Want to dance? How about-"

"Tenten-chan! It's your turn to sing!" Kurenai yelped, trying to get everyone's attention away from the two boys making-out in public.

"…Um." She glanced towards Neji, who was glaring at the sensei on stage. "Again, I'm sorry, Neji," she said, pecking him on the cheek and then walking to the stage, calmly.

Why was fate trying to mess up this date?

--With Gaara--

"Gaara-kun! Gaara-kun!" Lee squeaked out his name, running over to him and attacking him with a full-on glomp. "I did not know you were into things like this!" If he were a dog, his tail would've been wagging.

"Go away." Gaara hissed, glaring at the puppy-like boy on his back. Lee released his grip, and took a step back.

"But Gaara-kun…" Lee said, quietly, "You're all alone."

Gaara seemed to be shocked at Lee's words. Wasn't it obvious? Wasn't it clear that he wanted to be alone? Gaara glared more. "I'm always alone."

"Not anymore! As of today, Gaara-kun, I am your new best friend!" Lee shouted, happily.

"Isn't one of your little friends about to sing? Go support her and leave me be. I've got business with the old man," Gaara muttered, glaring at the principal. Stupid Third. Stealing Gaara's pipe. Who does he think he is? The hokage or something? (A/N:…I'm having too much fun with this T.T)

"Would you like to join me, Gaara-kun?" Lee asked, but dragged him over to watch Tenten, anyway.

--Tenten and Neji--

Tenten rummaged through the book of karaoke songs, then decided on one. It had been a favorite of hers since she was a child.

She walked to the middle of the stage, and readied herself. The music came on, and her voice wrapped around it softly.

"There's a song that's inside of my soul…

It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again.

I'm awake in the infinite cold,

But you sing to me over and over and over again.

So I lay my head back down

And I lift my hands and pray

To be only yours, I pray

To be only yours I know now,

You're my only hope," the words came from Tenten's mouth, flowing like a river.

"Sing to me the song

Of the stars of your galaxy

Dancing and laughing and laughing again

When it feels like my dreams are so far,

Sing to me of the plans

That you have for me over again

So I lay my head back down

And I lift my hands and pray

To be only yours, I pray

To be only yours I know now,

You're my only hope," Nobody knew Tenten's voice was so wonderful for this song… True, Tenten's voice was very high, but with this song it fit perfectly.

"I give you my destiny,

I'm giving you all of me.

I want your symphony

Singing in all that I am…

At the top of my lungs,

I'm giving it back

So I lay my head back down

And I lift my hands and pray

To be only yours I pray

To be only yours I pray

To be only yours I know now,

You're my only hope."

Tenten set the mike back on its stand, and bowed.

'It's sad the beautiful song had to end so soon,' Neji thought. 'She has a wondrous voice, it's a thought to ponder why she hasn't been noticed, yet.'

"YES, TENTEN-CHAN! YOU WERE SUPERB! I NEVER KNEW YOU HAD SO MUCH YOUTH FLOWING THROUGH YOU!" Neji heard Lee shout as loud as he could. "Gaara-kun, was she not great?"

Neji looked and saw the sand Shinobi staring upward at the weapon-loving girl. He looked back down just as fast.

'It's like he's jealo-' "Neji!" a voice interrupted his thoughts.

He looked over to see the songstress. "Neji! Was I good?" He blinked. Was she good? Was she good? Did she not hear herself? Did she just ignore Lee's outburst?

Tenten took the silence the wrong way. "Oh. Oh… Was I that bad? I didn't know I did so horribly to get the silent treatment…"

Just then, Neji jumped on her. He wrapped his arms around her waist, placed his lips on hers, and held onto her tightly. Tenten, surprised by the movement, placed her hands on Neji's back, unsteadily.

They released after they realized everyone staring at them. They both coughed, and backed away from one another. Neji then smiled at Tenten, "You were great."

And Tenten didn't stop blushing the whole night.

--Kakashi, Kiba, Hinata, Sakura --

"Kakashi-sensei…" Hinata muttered, looking up at him. "Then, d-does that mean the rumors about y-you and Iruka-sensei are… t-true?" Hinata asked, embarrassingly.

Kakashi's face brightened at the mention of Iruka's name, but shook his head. "Afraid not."

"Kakashi-sensei, you'd better not be teaching Sasuke-kun and Naruto naughty things." Sakura said, warningly.

"Ew! Ew! Ewwww!!" Kiba moaned, covering his ears and closing his eyes.

"What's wrong, Kiba-kun? Don't you like Shino-kun?" Kakashi asked, lifting an eyebrow.

Hinata squealed and fainted at the mention of this.

--Shikamaru and Ino--

Shikamaru and Ino were now sitting down, watching everyone get mushy.

"Hey, troublesome girl."

"Shika-kun, it's Ino," Ino corrected, it's not that she didn't like the nickname, it's just she liked her name escape from his lips more.

Shikamaru licked said lips, "Ino-chan, then. Don't you think it's a little unfair?" he scooted closer to her.

"What?" she answered, not noticing how he was getting closer.

"Everybody else is kissing. So why not us?" he asked, leaning in on her a little more.

"Shika-kun! We barely know each other!" Ino squealed, pushing him half-heartedly.

"We've known each other since preschool. I think we know each other enough." Shikamaru tried, leaning in once more.

"No! We just started liking each other like… this, you know!"

Shikamaru sighed, "Why are you being so troublesome, Ino-chan?" he asked, but just raised his head again. He pressed his lips against hers, making her squirm.

"Stop it!" she bonked him on the head, and got up to walk over to Chouji.

"Ino-chan, wait!" he said, mumbling something unintelligible that sounded like 'troublesome girls'.

Ahh, yes, love was in the air.

A/N: O.M.G. I finished. Finally. THE NON-AWAITED (XD) CHAPTER IS HERE!

Shika: What? Ino walked away!

Ino: You forced yourself on me!

Naru: ILUVBBRAE, where were we in this chapter?

Sasu: We were making out, remember?

Naru: That's not what I meant! –blush-

Me: Well, you were getting too much attention. So I wrote about everyone else. Oh, I don't own 'Only Hope', but if I did I wouldn't be here. I'd be on YOUTUBE:D! xD. It's written by Switchfoot, but the version I like a little more is the Mandy Moore one. For Tenten's type of voice, anyway.

I hope you enjoyed this chapter! And please, review:D!
