Chapter 5: Love Realized…

Hinata was completely speechless. She listened to every word Sasuke said and knew he meant every word. She looked into Sasuke's dark eyes. She just stared at them through her blurred vision because of the tears.

Sasuke hated that he made her cry twice guilt was written all over his face. It was a while before anyone of them said anything. Sasuke reached his hand up and wiped away Hinata's tears and smiled.

"Sasuke..." she looked at the water "did you mean what you said?"

"Every word"

She cried more and threw herself on him knocking him to the grown; she gripped his shirt crying more on his chest. Sasuke wrapped his arms around her and rubbed her back in hopes of stopping her crying.

"Come on Hinata please stop crying." Of all people he hated seeing her cry.

Hinata lifted her head and looked up at Sasuke. He looked back at her with more guilt in his eyes.

"Sasuke I-I…didn't know…you felt that way…"

"I thought you didn't feel the way I did so I never said anything..." he looked away

She sat up and they just looked at each other, she didn't know what to say, he just spilled his heart to her and she said nothing. She wanted to but the words just never came out. And she hated it.

Sasuke on the other hand was just glad that she had finally stopped crying. He pulled her back down next to him and put his arm around her. Showing her that he was mad or upset that she hadn't said anything.

The whole time they were laying there Hinata was debating or her own feelings towards Sasuke. Did she love him, could she love him, her mind was screaming 'yes! Yes! You love him!' she looked up at Sasuke, he had his eyes closed he looked as if he was asleep.

Hinata moved up towards Sasuke's face. She noticed how innocent he looked when he was asleep. She ran her hand along his cheek and smiled.

"I do…" she whispered as she played with his hair. "I think I always had..."

Hinata laid her head on Sasuke's chest like it was before. She then held his hand and fiddled with his fingers like she loved to do with a smile on her face.

Sasuke hadn't been asleep, he heard everything she said and was elated to hear that she loved him. He felt her soft hands on his face and got chills. He tried so hard not to smile since she thought he was asleep. Then she played with his hair. He hated anyone in his hair, sometimes even Hinata but he let her anyways, for some reason he just couldn't say no to her. There was a reason.

"I love you too." He whispered slowly opening his eyes looking at her.

Hinata gasped when she realized that Sasuke wasn't asleep and heard everything she said. She blushed and looked away.

After a couple moments of silence she spoke "Sasuke…"

He said nothing just stared into her lavender eyes. Oh how he loved those eyes. He chuckled when she blushed. He sat up moving her to sit in his lap. He kissed the top of her head. Making her blush even more.

"You blush a lot..." he said causing yet another blush



"Why me?"

"What do you mean?"

"You know what I mean w-why me?"

"Why not you?"

"You have all those other girls the flock over you. They're prettier then me for sure and…"


She looked at him; he put his finger on her lips to prevent her from saying anything else. He hated the fact that she was putting her self down like she was.

"You are prettier than those girls. You the best looking girl in all of Kohona. Believe it!"

Hinata laughed at Sasuke's Naruto like behavior. "Someone's rubbing off on you."

"It would seem so, that's the second time I said that today." He said

"Before you know it you'll be going crazy over ramen, it'll be like having two Naruto's." She joked.

Sasuke shuddered at the thought of acting like Naruto, yelling all the time and eating that god awful ramen.

"I think I'll stick to being myself." He nodded

"That's good I don't think we need another Naruto around."

"You got that right one is defiantly enough."

Sasuke nodded and once again they sat in silence. Silence was good for them it was never uncomfortable it was just silence. Just being in the company of the one they cared about was good enough for them. (AN: omg I had the best line to put here but it just went away…I just had to glance at the t.v. Stupid television…Evil…)

"It's getting late…" Hinata finally said.

Sasuke looked up at the dark sky and nodded. He hadn't noticed how late it got. Hinata looked at Sasuke and stood and put her hand out to help him up. He gladly took it and they walked hand and hand towards Hinata's home.

They were half way there when Hinata suddenly stopped causing Sasuke to look at her.

"What's wrong?"

She looked down at her feet then into his eyes "Sasuke." She then hugged him "don't ever leave me."

Sasuke was shocked by her actions and hugged back and whispered in her ears. "I will never leave you Hinata"

She looked at him and smiled once again on the verge of tears. Sasuke saw that and could only think of one thing to stop the tears before they fell. He kissed her, and not like the one before. This one was more passionate.

Hinata tensed for a moment then relaxed into the kiss. She wrapped her arms around his neck while Sasuke put his hand on her waist. It was perfect in Hinata's opinion. They broke apart due to lack of air and Sasuke hugged her again. Both of their faces were as red as tomatoes. They started walking again, when they were almost to Hinata's house she turned to him.

"I love you." She blushed brightly

"I love you too"

She smiled and looked behind her, "I should go before my father sends Neji to search for me."

Sasuke chuckled "yea." He gave her a peck on the cheek. "I'll see you tomorrow ok?"

She blushed "yea of course bye Sasuke." She said as she ran home.

Sasuke stood there and watched her run home. Then turned around and walked to his place. He had a smile on his face, 'just like before.'

"Hmm déjà vu." He said to himself. As he walked home. He couldn't wait to see Hinata tomorrow. He couldn't wait to spend the rest of his days with the one he grew to love so much. He was sure that she was the one he would marry. But that was a long time from now. All he cared about was the present. That is what he was content with at that moment. But he knew the future would be great as long as he spent it with his one true love…
