6 YEARS LATER


"NEJIIIII!!" a sharp piercing scream ran through the Hyuga compound.

Neji's ears were ringing, having just been yelled in the ear by the woman lying next to him. 'What a way to wake up'. He thought; unsure of what was wrong with his wife.

"What's wrong Tenten?" The Hyuga prodigy asked, rubbing his temples from the imminent headache he felt coming.

"Neji, look what time it is!" Tenten shrieked, as she jumped out of bed, rushing through the room as she dressed herself and pulled out clothes for her husband to wear.

"Hn." The confused Hyuga replied, watching his wife pull the covers off of him and throwing him a pair of robes.

"HURRY, HURRY, HURRY! Get up and get dressed Neji, FAST!" she pulled him out of bed, urging him to get dressed quickly.

"What's the rush?" Neji asked, still confused as to why his wife was running around like a madwoman.

"WHAT'S THE RUSH?!" Tenten asked incredulously, "NEJI! Have you forgotten what day today is?"

"…" In fact Neji HAD forgotten what day today was. He was fairly certain it wasn't Tenten's birthday, or their anniversary; there were no missions, so he was sure they weren't late for any briefings with the hokage. He had just come back from an ANBU mission the day before, but he wasn't set to debrief until noon, and it was only 7:45.

"OHMYGAWD! You forgot?!" Tenten stared at Neji, half shocked, half furious that he could forget something so important. And what's more, he was making her waste more time, and they were already late!

A soft knock at their bedroom door saved Neji from the harsh lecture Neji knew Tenten was preparing to launch at him, along with (most likely) a few kunai and shuriken she kept hidden in the top drawer of their dresser. The door slowly opened, and there stood a little boy dressed in his best Hyuga robes, holding on to Hinata's hand.

"Mommy, Daddy, Good morning!" The little boy cheerfully said, rushing over towards Neji to give him a hug. He hadn't seen his daddy come in the night before, so he was very excited to see him.

"Good morning Hizashi-chan." Neji replied, smiling down at his five year old son. (1)

"Good morning my little ray of sun." Tenten replied, having cooled down from her earlier rampage. (2)

"G-good morning Tenten-neechan; good morning Neji-niisan." Hinata quietly greeted the two from the doorway.

"Good morning Hinata." Tenten replied, smiling at her cousin-in-law.

"Good morning Hinata-sama" Neji replied.

"Hizashi-chan is ready." Hinata informed the pair.

'Ready?' Neji wondered. He wanted to ask out loud, but was certain that it would only cause trouble for him, so instead he said, "Arigato Hinata-sama."

"Yes daddy, I'm ready." The young Hyuga smiled up at his father. "Mommy? Is daddy going to come with us too?"

"Yes Hizashi-chan." Tenten replied, "But we have to go now, it's getting late."

"Okay." Hizashi smiled, making his way towards the door, "LET'S GO!" he shouted, pulling his father with him.


…:a few minutes later:…


In a very familiar courtyard with a very familiar swing in a far corner, Tenten, Neji, Hizashi, Hinata, Hanabi, Hiashi, and even Lee and Gai-sensei stood waiting for a bell to ring. This was a very BIG day; Hizashi's very first day of school at Konoha's ninja academy.

'I can't believe I forgot'. Neji berated himself, as he watched his wife hug their son, a single tear running down her cheek.

"Mommy... It's going to be okay." Hizashi whined.

"Don't worry Tenten-neechan, Hizashi-chan will be just fine." Hinata added. Hanabi nodded.

"YOSH! THAT'S RIGHT, HAZISHI-CHAN HAS NEJI-SAN'S YOUTHFUL GENIUS, AND TENTEN'S YOUTHFUL ENERGY." Lee exclaimed.

"THAT'S RIGHT LEE! HIZASHI-CHAN WILL DO VERY WELL, AND HE SHALL SHOW THE OTHER CHILDREN HIS YOUTHFUL HYUGA SPIRIT!" Gai-sensei agreed.

"Hn." Hiashi only nodded his head. It wasn't common for him to agree with the insane ramblings of the two green beasts of Konoha, but he knew for certain that his young nephew's son would be just fine.

"Have a good day son." Neji gave the young boy a hug, after prying Tenten off the boy, so he could line up with the other student's who were already getting ready to go in.

"Take care of mommy, daddy." Hizashi waved as he ran towards the line.

Yes. He was going to be just fine.

...His mother on the other hand... that was another story.


THE END


(1) being NejixTen fans, I'm sure everyone knows who their son is named after…

(2) I know, sounds a little Lee/Gai-ish, but Hizashi literally means, "sunlight" or "rays of sun"
