(A/N: …how am I going to manage to make the first chapter of a BakiHina fic? I mean seriously, Baki? The guys like a fricken' filler…
But anything is possible with Hina-chan, I simply have to put my mind to it and cultivate some sort of odd love for the pairing…
-SHAMELESS ADVERTISING- Read shikaruTo's 'Chocolat' it tis adorable and needs reading, you know you want to read it! Come on! I need her to update! XP the cliffy is making me suffer endlessly!!)
Obviously not everyone got the memo.
Hinata was near tears as she stared down at her feet.
Baki let out an overly exasperated sigh.
Not everyone knew about the company party.
A cruel prank, but really nothing to be so upset about.
She looked slightly startled when he addressed her, "H-hai?"
"I realize that you were looking forward to the event, but it's not the worst thing that could have happened…" Baki knew he wasn't very good at comforting people, much less his co-workers… sighing he shook his head, "Never mind…"
Hinata blinked twice, disappointment still firm in her heart. She knew it was a stupid thing to cry about… but she really had wanted to go, when she heard that she missed it…
She sighed, she mist have looked like a weak little girl to Baki, all he'd done was come to ask why she hadn't shown up…
She bit her lip as she watched the man begin to leave after apologizing for being the barer of bad news, gulping, she spoke, "W-wait!"
He turned around with a questioning look and she put on a watery smile, "T-thank you for trying to comfort me."
He decided right there that he wanted to see the girl smile more often.
((Ending Notes: -sigh- my monkey ran away and Mort is eating my toes… oh well… happens.
I know this chapter was pretty lame but I rushed it, I'll make sure the next one is cuter and better.
Now for the background info!
Baki and Hinata both work for a company Gaara's father owns that is comparable to none but the Uchiha corporation that is their rivals. Hinata's family isn't excessively rich nor do they own a corporation but they do have a lot of money that Hiashi's father gained in the stock markets. Hinata isn't usually so over emotional, but she had a trying week previous to the event, ever heard of the straw that broke the camels back? She lives pm her own in an apartment roughly fifteen minutes from her work. Hinata's friends consist of Sakura(who works with her), Ino(who she knew from high school), Chouji(friend of Ino's), and Tayuya(long and funny story how they met).
Baki is a bit of a loner and doesn't have many friends; his best friend is Obito who works with him. He used to work as a babysitter for a brief amount of time and one of the families he babysat for were the Sabaku's, even though he wasn't much older than the oldest child, Temari. Gaara never liked him nor warmed up to him. Temari thought he was hot. Kankurou reserved his opinion but left hints that he was fond of him. He wants to make Hinata smile more often and becomes shoved into her life while attempting to do so.
Sakura likes Hinata an awful lot and quickly became friends with her, said that she reminded her of how Sakura used to act. Sakura works at Sabaku Corp. purely on vendetta to someone she knows that works at the rivaling company, though it doesn't become clear who to Hinata, it is in fact the CEO's son, Uchiha Sasuke who has Sakura vengeance obsessed. Come up with your own reasons why. Sakura doesn't get along with Hinata's cousin, Neji, and eventually a love-hate relationship unfolds between the two.
Ino has been close to Hinata since junior year, she likes spending time with the shy and innocent female. She knows Chouji through her parents and never really liked him much at first, however, after Chouji's best-friend Shikamaru dies in a horrible car accident she can't help but want top comfort him. They've have been best-friends ever since.
Tayuya dislikes all of Hinata's other friends and at times appears to dislike Hinata as well, though despite all they are very close. The funny story behind their meeting is shrouded in mystery for most and confuses people often when they will reference to it but not explain what happened. Tayuya has a small crush on Haku, who she met one time while visiting Hinata at her work.
Sasuke is of little importance to the story and only appears once or twice, in one of these events Sakura punches him so hard he gets slammed against a wall. He is friends/enemies with Gaara and only knows Naruto through Gaara, Naruto being Gaara's best friend. A cute romance between him and Temari unfolds behind the scenes.
Gaara also doesn't appear often.
Okay… that's all I could think of off the top of my head -.-' hope it twas decent!!
