Wanna know one important reason why Hinata isn't good for Naruto?

An AntiNaruHina Tale

It was a bright sunny day. But it wasn't very peaceful.

"Sakura-chan! Please?" Naruto was on his knees and begging his pink-haired teammate.

"For the last time, no!" Sakura shouted as she punched him over the head. He collapsed like a sack of bricks.

Naruto jumped up to find Sakura gone. However, there was someone else in front of him.

"Hinata-chan!" he shouted as he ran over and hugged her.

There was an eep and Naruto pulled back slightly to look at the unconscious girl in his arms. "Hinata-chan?"

-o-o-o-o-o-

(A few minutes after Hinata woke up...)

"So you see! After ten bowls, Sakura-chan won't let me have anymore ramen! You'll talk to her for me right?" Naruto asked as he concluded his story.

Hinata had a determined expression on her face. She gave a brisk nod before leaving to find Sakura.

-o-o-o-o-o-

Sakura turned and saw Hinata approach her. This was like the hundredth time in the past two weeks. Enough was enough, and the pink-haired girl finally threw up her arms and shouted in exasperation. "That's it! Fine! Go tell the idiot that I won't limit his intake anymore. He can eat all the artery-clogging ramen he wants from now on."

With that, she stomped off angrily, leaving a confused girl behind.

Needless to say, Naruto was ecstatic about the news, and he celebrated it with a new record...47 bowls.

(A few years later)

Naruto finally fell over from a heart attack.

Hours later, Sakura left his hospital room with a frown on her face.

Hinata timidly entered, and slowly approached the figure in bed with an apprehensive look on her face. Naruto turned to Hinata with a smile.

"It's not your fault Hinata-chan, don't beat yourself over it."

"But if I hadn't changed Sakura's mi-" the girl cried from the side.

"Hinata-chan!" Naruto said sternly. "A Hokage can work just as well from behind his desk. Sakura-chan might not let me enter the field for a few weeks but it's not over."

They were silent for a moment.

"Oh!" Naruto suddenly shouted as he smacked a fist into a palm, "Sakura-chan has also forbidden me from ever touching ramen again. Can you talk to her again for me?"

When she heard this, Hinata ran from the room with a choked sob.

"Neji!" Naruto called out. When his friend peered through the doorway, the blond Hokage quickly said, "Watch over your cousin."

With a bow, the white-eyed man left the room.

(The moral of this tale?)

Hinata is too nice. She won't push him to stop even when she realizes that Naruto is hurting himself.

A/N: There we go, this was a good creative writing exercise. The characters should be fairly IC. Let me know if they're not. Don't forget to add why. Tweaking things is a specialty of mine.

Acknowledgements:

Thanks go to DrkKni for pointing out a discontinuity in the story. I fixed it so that now we see that Naruto had been asking Hinata this favor for some time now.

Thanks to faern for pointing out an unrealistic time frame. Easily fixed.
