Sand: hey here's chapter 5

Sakura: hopefully nothing too bad happens to us

Ino: Eh, I'm not too worried.

Hinata: Sand-chan owns nothing but the plot (so she says) so please, don't try anything legal …… as she won't understand anything you say.

Sand: Yeah, to me you'll sound like Charlie Brown's teacher. 5555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555

Hinata smiled as she packed her school bag on Monday. She couldn't wait to get to school; she wanted to see 'her Romeo'. She couldn't help but smile at the thought of seeing his smiling face. She got butterflies just thinking about it. She was so lost in her thoughts she almost didn't hear her doorbell.

"Hey Ino, I'll be ready in a minute." She said as she answered the door and saw only Ino. She turned and walked into the living room to grab her bag and her lunch.

"Ok." the blonde girl stepped in the house a wide smile lighting up her pretty face.

"Ok, let's go!" Hinata said as she walked back out into the entrance hall. Soon the girls came up to the school gates, Ino stopped in shock as she saw something she thought she'd never see.

"What's up Ino?" Hinata asked turning to look at her.

"I-is that SAKURA with KIBA!!" She cried pointing over to where Kiba, Shikamaru, and Naruto hung out, Hinata turned to look. Sure enough, Sakura was standing there with there group laughing. Then both girls noticed Sakura's bandaged face, they ran over.

"Sakura-chan, what happened?" Hinata cried.

"Who did this to you, I'll kill them!" Ino declared furious. Sakura blinked in surprise and stared her two best friends, and then she sighed. She glanced at Kiba, nervous about if she should tell them or not, she hadn't told the boys yet, besides Kiba of course. He smiled at her faintly and nodded, she tried to smile but it failed, and turned back to Hinata and Ino.

"Sa-Sasuke got mad at me ….. Because he saw me hanging out with Kiba … and … he… And he… Did this." she whispered. They stared at her in shock or a second then Ino exploded.

"HE WHAT!!! I'LL KILL HIM!!! I SWEAR TO GOD I'LL KILL HIM!!! NOBODY MESSES WITH MY FRIENDS!!" She roared all fired up and ready to hunt the Uchiha down and hand his butt to him on a silver platter.

"I-Ino … No … please." Sakura whispered, Ino looked at Sakura for a minute then nodded slowly. Suddenly they heard a sniffle, they turned to look at Hinata, she had tears in her eyes.

"Oh no, no Hinata! No tears! No crying for me you hear!" Sakura said pulling the dark haired girl into a hug.

"How could he do that to you! He said he loved you!" She cried, her friends realized that not only were her tears, tears of sadness, but also tears of anger.

"He said a lot of things he didn't mean, Hina-chan, and a lot of things he did." Sakura whispered.

"Hey! Boys are Whatever, Friends are Forever, yeah!?" Ino cried.

"Yeah!" the other two laughed.

"I wonder if we should take offense to that." Shikamaru murmured, Naruto chuckled and shook his head, Kiba just smirked.

"No only Dog-boy." Sakura said teasingly, Kiba's smirk widened.

"Eh, whatever you say Pinky, whatever you say." Sakura blinked and smiled.

"Whatever I say, huh? Well, then, entertain me, Dance Dog-boy Dance!" She grinned, Kiba stared at her then rolled his eyes.

"Billboard Brow." he murmured staring at her from half-closed eyes.

"What was that." she growled.

"You heard me." he teased heading towards the school.

"Hey get back here!" She cried chasing after him, Shikamaru and Ino followed chuckling quietly.

"So, My Sweet Juliet, how was your night?" Naruto asked smiling down at the smaller girl.

"It was fine, Darling Romeo, how was your's?" She asked.

"I'm afraid I couldn't sleep wink." he answered.

"Oh? And why is that?" she asked smiling as they entered the school.

"My dream was haunted by a beautiful vision." he murmured, the truth was Kyuubi kept him up half the night, but he wasn't going to tell her that.

"Oh really?" she blinked at him in confusion.

"Yes, you wanna know what that vision of loveliness was?" he asked, as they stopped at her locker, their friends long gone, and long forgotten.

"Um, su-sure." he grinned.

"It was-" Naruto was cut off by the bell, his face fell, and he pouted.

"W-we had b-better g-go." Hinata said slipping back into her old way of stuttering. He smiled and nodded.

"Later, My Beautiful Juliet." He leaned down and kissed her cheek lightly.

"Bye, Fair Romeo." she answered before darting down the hall towards her class. He chuckled and headed to his own class.


"So, Naruto, what's up with you and the Hyuuga girl?" Kiba asked, as the three boys hung out on the school roof. Shikamaru was out like a light, leaving them instructions to wake him when the bell rang, it was the only class he had with Ino.

"What's it to you?" Naruto replied trying to catch up on his lost sleep.

"Nothing, I just want to know" the other boy replied glancing over at his friend.

"It's …. different." Naruto murmured.

"Different? Different from what? You haven't had a girlfriend since …. Since …. Huh, you've never had a girlfriend." Kiba said scratching his chin lightly.

"I HAVE TOO!" Naruto shouted sitting up quickly.

"Oh really … who?" Kiba asked smirking.

"We-well, th-there was that girl!" Naruto exclaimed.

"That ….. Girl?" Kiba said slowly.

"Ye-yeah th-that girl in 6th grade." Naruto said nodding his head firmly. Kiba just looked at him and laughed.

"Shut up." Naruto growled, which caused Kiba to laugh harder.

"So, what's up with you and Sakura?" Naruto asked, Kiba froze.

"She came to me last night, all beat up and crying." Kiba said lowly, Naruto watched him.

"So, what'd you do?" They glanced over at Shikamaru, they hadn't realized he was awake.

"Took care of her, talked to her, and let her stay the night, cuz she didn't want to go home." Kiba murmured staring off into space, Naruto and Shikamaru exchanged a look.

"Why'd you help her, I thought you hated her?" Shikamaru asked glancing at him out of the corner of his eye.

"Because, she reminded me of my sister, because I hate Uchiha, and because ….." he trailed off quietly once more.

"You love her." Naruto whispered staring at him.


"Since when?" Shikamaru asked.

"The day I first laid eyes on her." Naruto and Shikamaru nodded once. Then, before they could talk about it more, the bell for gym rang.

"Can't we just stay up here and sleep." Naruto whined.

"Don't you wanna see 'your Juliet'?" Kiba asked teasingly as he and Shikamaru stood up. Naruto jumped up and raced down the stairs, Kiba and Shikamaru just followed him slowly.


"Ok, who here also hates gym?" Ino asked as she, Sakura, and Hinata stepped into the gym from the locker room. They stared at her blankly, as Hinata tugged on the hem of her shorts, they were to short for her taste. Their gym uniforms, for the girls, were a dark blue cotton t-shirt, or tank top. with black short jogging shorts. The boys was a dark cotton t-shirt, or wife beater, with black shorts.

"Ino, you're such a girly-girl." Sakura snickered, Ino glared at her, then noticed someone.

"SHIKA!" she shouted running over and jumping on the boys' back.

"Tch, Ino." he said, rolling his eyes, as Hinata and Sakura came up.

"Jeez, for someone who hates gym you sure do run fast when you see Shikamaru-san." Hinata said.

"Hina-chan!" Ino cried blushing as she slid off of Shikamaru's back.

"Eh, doesn't matter how fast she runs, we all know I could beat her." Sakura said smirking at the blonde girl.

"Yeah, but we all know how many guys you can pick up after you run your daily five miles in the morning, absolutely none." Ino smirked, Sakura glared and slightly pouted.

"Sakura … it's Sasuke, he's coming this way and he looks angry." Hinata whispered, Sakura tensed her eyes wide with fear. He wouldn't do anything in the middle of a crowded gym, would he? Kiba shifted slightly so he was in front of her.

"Calm down, Pinky." he muttered, she whimpered. He felt her hand curl into the fabric of his shirt from behind. Naruto and Shikamaru stood on either side of her and Ino and Hinata brought up the rear. Then her words form the night before floated into his heard. I'm afraid, Kiba, I'm afraid the next time I see him he's going to kill me.

"What are you doing near my girl, Inuzuka?" Sasuke sneered.

"Hanging out with a friend, last time I checked Sakura was still allowed to hang out with friends or have you completely took control of her life?" Kiba responded.

"Watch your mouth, Dog. It'll get you in trouble." Sasuke snapped.

"I'm not scared of you if that's what you're implying." Kiba rolled his eyes.

"Tch, whatever, let's go Sakura." he said turning away. Sakura whimpered faintly but didn't move.

"I said Let's Go Sakura!" He snarled facing her. She flinched, and Kiba feared she would go with him, he wouldn't be able to bear it if she did.

"No." she whispered.

"What did you say?" he asked.

"I said no, I'm not going with you. We're though, don't come near me again." Sakura said, glaring at him.

"You'll regret this," he snapped, then he turned and started to walk away.

"Sasuke!" she called the others stared at her thinking she was changing her mind, he turned back.

"Take this with you!" she called, she unclasped the necklace he had given to her and threw it at him, he caught it and glared at her.

"I thought you were going to go with him for a minute there, Kura-chan." Hinata whispered.

"You don't have to worry about that Hina-chan!" Sakura smiled at her.

"Pinky, sometimes I wonder if you're more trouble than you're worth." Kiba muttered as they started to walk again, Sakura just grinned at him.

"God would he quit staring!" Sakura growled as they walked around the track a little while later. They had a free period in gym out side, so they decided to walk.

"Ignore him." Ino said.

"I have, but it doesn't stop him." the pink haired girl snarled, Kiba chuckled quietly, she looked cute when she was angry, he had always thought that.

"Oi! Would you stop staring at me!" She yelled turning to face Sasuke, who had been following them around the track.

"Make me." he replied.

"Don't tempt me." she muttered lowly, Ino and Hinata giggled.

"Who do you think you're talking to?" Sasuke growled marching over to Sakura, Ino and Hinata stood shoulder to shoulder with her.

"Keep outta this." he snapped shoving Hinata to the side. Shikamaru, Kiba, and Naruto moved to Sasuke to hit him, but Sakura got there first. Sasuke didn't even realize she was in front of him until he was sliding across the ground.

"Don't mess with my friends." she snarled, her emerald green eyes flashing dangerously.

"What is going on here!" their Gym teacher asked.

"Nothing Sensei." they answered, before they turned and left Sasuke lying on the ground staring after them.

"That was some hit Kura-chan." Hinata whispered.

"It felt good …really good." Sakura grinned.

"Oh, please don't tell us you're turning back into a juvenile delinquent." Ino groaned, Sakura giggled.

"No, it just felt good." She answered.

"Sooo, who has to work tonight?" Ino asked.

"All three of us." Hinata answered.


"Oh, Juliet, you're darling Romeo is here." Sakura called teasingly, as the trio entered the Barnes and nobles from the employee's room.

"Shut up!" Hinata hissed as she and Sakura headed to set up the tables, and Ino headed over to the counter.

"Awww you're blushing, that's sooo, cute." Ino laughed as the boys headed over.

"Good Afternoon, Sweet Juliet." Naruto smirked, kissing Hinata's hand, she turned redder.

"Afternoon, Dear Romeo." she replied.

"Oi! Hinata, less flirting, more working!" Mack, their boss, called. Again Hinata blushed.

"I-I had better go." Hinata murmured, Naruto smirked again and nodded.
