Author note: I am skipping to Neji and Tenten's wedding instead of having another day of nothing. Thank you.

Chapter 12

"Crap, crap, crap, crap! Oh crap! No, no, no, no, no, no, no! N-N-N-Neji today, Neji, today, oh crap!" Tenten whimpered.

"Tenten… Tenten… Tenten calm down… Tenten come here," Neji said as he grabbed her around the waist and pulled her against his chest.

"Neji I'm so nervous. Oh crap. I-I don't think I can go through with this," Tenten whimpered.

"Tenten," Neji murmured, "do you love me?"

"Yes. But…"

"Do you think you're making a mistake by marrying me?"

"No… no…but…"

"Then there's nothing to worry about. By tonight we'll be married and you'll be able to use your weapons again."

"Neji… are you attempting to bribe me into marrying you? I figured that you would never bribe someone." Tenten teased.

"I am not bribing you. Do I need to bribe you? I was under the impression that we were in love and I didn't need to bribe you," Neji murmured.

"You don't!"

"Tenten, calm down. I was just kidding," Neji said softly.

"But Neji…"

"Tenten, it's too early to be getting upset. It's only two thirty a.m."

"I'm sorry, its just I'm really nervous."

"Just relax. Breathe," he whispered softly into her ear. "There's nothing to be worried about."

Tenten shifted slightly so that she was half facing him. "I love you. I love you so much."

"I love you more than you can even imagine. But don't tell my parents they might try to 'help me' again," Neji answered. Shortly afterwards he felt her slump against his chest.

…………………………Several hours later……………………

"Tenten, are you nervous? I mean it's okay if you're nervous but really you shouldn't be because you look fabulous in that dress," Ino exclaimed in one breath. Ino was the one that seemed nervous.

"Really, Ino, I'm not all that nervous."

"No! If you're nervous it's okay!" Sakura put in. She seemed just as nervous as Ino.

"I'm not nervous you two."

At this Ino and Sakura walked out seeming ready to faint.

"Tenten? Are you nervous?" Hinata said giving her older sister a knowing look.

"Yes, but hell will freeze over before I let Ino and Sakura know that."

"Don't worry. I'm sure Neji is just as nervous as you are."

"Somehow I doubt it," Tenten murmured.

"Somehow I don't," Hinata replied.

"Neji? Are you aware that you've straightened that flower seventeen times in the last five minutes?" Shikamaru asked.

"Shut up or I'll inflict physical harm on you," Neji growled as he straightened the flower once again.

"You're supposed to go out there now Neji," Sasuke stated.

"Okay," he straightened the flower again before he went out to the altar.

"He's as nervous as he could possibly get," Naruto stated.


"Time for us to go out. Are you ready Tenten?"


(Because of my lack of knowledge of how a wedding ceremony is laid out I'm not even going to attempt to tell you how it all goes.)

Anyway they managed to get through the entire ceremony without any major problems. (Except that Lee kept trying to hug Neji as they were coming back down the aisle. That nearly got Lee killed.)

…………………………After the wedding…………………………

"That wasn't so bad. I mean sure I was having a nervous breakdown but it could've been worse right?" Tenten said in a shaky voice.

"I can think of about two hundred and fifty seven different ways that could've been worse right off the top of my head," Neji replied.

"Oh? Please enlighten me."

Neji began pointing at randomly at girls around his age, "One, two, three… get the picture?"

"You could've been marrying one of them?" Tenten asked.

"That would've been a lot worse if you ask me," Neji stated. "Now lets hurry and get out of my parents sight before they try to introduce us to the young couple from another country and start trying to convince us to make an alliance with them by marrying our children off to theirs."

"There is no way I'm marrying my children off to another nation because your parents want us to. I've noticed they aren't exactly the sanest people I've ever met. Of course they did have me abducted and forced here against my will. That could have affected my thoughts on them."

"It could have. On the other hand I wouldn't call them sane myself. Then again I found out that instead of forcing me to marry some girl who was completely devoted to me, they abducted a girl who didn't want anything to do with me. That could have affected my thoughts on them."

"I suppose so. Where exactly did you want us to go again?"

"You'll figure it out," Neji murmured.

"You aren't thinking…"

"We really could get started on that one kid you wanted to have, before you decided how many kids you wanted, right away," Neji whispered.

"Alright," Tenten said rolling her eyes.

……………………….Several weeks later…………………...

All of the couples were happily married now. Sasuke and Sakura's wedding had gone fine apart from the five girls that had to be forced to leave due to the fact that they attempted to attack Sakura. Tenten had gladly removed them from palace grounds.

Shikamaru and Ino's wedding had been interesting. Shikamaru had said 'troublesome' at the end of all of his sentences and Ino had started yelling at him. The people at the wedding were so confused they weren't even sure if at the end of the ceremony Ino and Shikamaru were married or not.

Surprisingly Naruto and Hinata's wedding had gone the most smoothly of all. The only thing that had happened at their wedding was that Hinata tripped as she got to the altar, but Naruto caught her so it didn't really matter.

"You know people are always talking about how being married to someone is so different from dating them? Well so far I've only found one major difference and I'm not about to start talking about it to everyone," Ino said to her sisters who she was finally able to talk to.

"I know what you mean. I mean I suppose we never really dated, we were engaged and our engagement was probably a little different from that of other people's engagements. I mean we were spending our entire life with them the second we met them," Sakura pondered.

"I'm just glad the wedding is over. I was so nervous with all those people watching me. And then I just had to trip," Hinata said.

"I'm just glad that I'm allowed to use my weapons again. Oh how I missed my weapons," Tenten added.

"That troublesome woman has been having mood swings. I fear the worst," Shikamaru stated.

"You've been married for three weeks. If the worst is that she's well you know… then you're probably right. Sakura's been having mood swings too," Sasuke stated.

"Hinata just acts like she did when we first met. She yells at me one second and then the next second she's crying that we don't talk anymore and we just talked for three hours," Naruto stated.

"Tenten acts normally most of the time but sometimes she starts getting really quiet and she refuses to speak to me and I haven't done anything to make her mad," Neji stated.

"Do you think that's just how women act when they first get married?" Naruto asked.

"Loser. That's how woman act when they're… how to put this into terms you'll understand…" Sasuke started.

"When they are possibly getting ready to have a child," Neji stated.

"Oh. So…oh…how the heck are we supposed to find out for sure? I don't think you're supposed to just ask a girl a question like that."

"Maybe they'll just tell us in time," Shikamaru said.

"Lets hope so. I find no joy in the thought of asking my wife if she's with child," Sasuke said.


"Neji… you know how after our wedding we went to go get started on that first child? Well umm… how to put this? We're going to be parents!" Tenten said nervously.

There was silence for a moment.

"Neji? Are you alright?" Tenten asked.

"I…think…so…." Neji said. (I suppose guessing it is one thing, knowing it is a completely different issue).

"Neji just breathe."

Neji sat down on the bed. "We're going to be parents… that's… great news! We have to go tell everyone!" Neji said when he finally came back to his senses.

"And I was beginning to think that you were going to pass out."


"Yes I should've known that you don't pass out for any reason at all," Tenten said softly.

"Sasuke I've practiced this every way that I could think of it and I think that the best way is this one. You might want to sit down," Sakura said. Sasuke gave her a funny look but sat down nonetheless. "We're going to be parents."


"Sasuke? Sasuke? Sasuke! Oh crap, he passed out!"

"Shikamaru sit down," Ino commanded. "We're going to be having a child. Now be happy."

"Yes Ino, dear," Shikamaru said. "Lets go tell everyone!"

"Oh! I knew that you'd be excited Shikamaru. I'm so glad that you're happy!"

"Like you gave me a choice," Shikamaru muttered.

"What was that Shikamaru, sweetie?"

"Nothing. Just trying to figure out who to tell first."

"That's what I thought."

"Naruto we're going to have a baby!" Hinata said to no one in particular. No maybe not. Maybe, we're going to be parents!"

"We are?" Naruto said behind her.

"Ahh! Naruto you scared me. You heard that?" Hinata asked.


"I thought so. Umm… we're going to be parents…"

"That's great news. We have to go tell everyone. Alright, I'm going to be a dad!"

"He took that rather well. I was expecting him to freak out at the very least."


"All of you are with child? This is wonderful news! We must announce it to the whole kingdom!" the queen said happily. "I'm going to be a grandmother. This is so exciting! Sasuke what's wrong with you?"

"I'm fine."

"Are you sure, dear, you're a little pale." The queen stated.

"He just hasn't quite digested the information yet I don't think," Sakura said.

"Of course. Don't worry its always a little worrying at first. But you'll get used to it," the king said. "Now to go and tell the entire kingdom."

…………………….Later when the couples are alone……………………

"Sasuke I would do anything for you."

"You are my life, Sakura."

"Ino you make even this troublesome world worth living in."

"Shikamaru I love you as much as you say troublesome."

"Naruto I love you so much I can hardly stand it."

"I love you more than I love breathing, Hinata."

"Tenten I love you more than anything."

"I love you too Neji, more than life itself."

Author note: I'm sorry about those last few things. I just wanted to put them in there because they sort of just came to me. Well Queen of His Heart is finally complete. It's kind of sad. But fear not I have a few ideas up my sleeve and hopefully once I start trying to write them they'll turn out well enough to put up.

I hope you enjoyed this fan fiction. It was really fun to write and I thank all of you who reviewed.
