"Howdy" talking

'Howdy' thoughts

Hinata's Guardian

Chapter 1

One day a three-year-old Naruto Uzumaki was walking in the park when he heard crying coming from behind a tree. "Huh? Who are you?" he asked the little girl who was crying. The little girl had black hair with a hint of blue in it, pale skin that just suited her, and large lavender pupil-less eyes. "Nani?! Who are you?" Naruto had a look of confusion on his face, "Ano, I asked you first?" After hearing Naruto's logic she realized she was being rude. "Gomen, I am Hinata Hyuga," Hinata replied while wiping the tears from her eyes. "Who are you?" Naruto smiled for the first time in three months; ever since the village orphanage threw him out he has had to fend for himself, trying to find the Hokage, but the villagers wouldn't let him near the Hokage's office. "I'm Naruto Uzumaki, nice to meet you. You're the first person besides old man Hokage who doesn't speak to me like there going to shove me when I turn around." Hinata's eyes widened at that last remark. "Do people do that often?" Hinata asked with pure concern in her question. Naruto answered knowing she meant well, "Yeah"

Then Hinata did the only thing she knew to do when someone was hurt, either physically or mentally, and she hugged him. Naruto didn't know what was happening, hugging was something that only happened before he could remember anything solid enough. "Aaah! What are you doing? Let go of me!" When Naruto got out of Hinata's grasp she thought he didn't like her and started to cry. Naruto saw this and immediately started to apologize. "Hinata I'm sorry what's wrong? Was it that thing you were doing holding me?" That struck a nerve in her, she immediately knew what he was confused by. "You mean you've never been hugged before?" Naruto simply answered, "Hug? What's a hug?" "A hug is a gesture of love or that they care." "So you were sad for me that people talk mean to me?" "Yes, no one deserves to be treated like that." Naruto thought for a minute before speaking again. "Will you be my friend?" "Of course, don't you have any?" "No, everyone that had has been told by there parents to stay away from me." After recalling such horrible times made Naruto start to cry. Hinata then engulfed Naruto in a hug once again knowing he now knew what it was. "Naruto please don't cry. I'll be your best friend, even if I'm your only one." Naruto started to hug Hinata back, "Thank you Hinata."

After letting go the new friends talked for half an hour about there lives, but being three year olds meant they didn't have much to talk about. When the 30 minutes where up a Hyuga guard was calling Hinata's name. "I've got to go now Naruto. Are you going to be okay?" "Yeah, go don't worry about me." Hinata then pulled out a kunai and handed it to him. "Here, this is in case anything bad happens, okay." Hinata said handing the ninja weapon to her best friend. "Arigato Hinata-chan." After Naruto added the

-chan to her name that made her blush a deep crimson. Luckily she wasn't facing him when he said that. "Bye Naruto-kun!" Hinata said running off to her escort.
