Mshinata: Haha, arigato for the lovely reviews. Arigato ofnonimportance. Those comments you made on your review really made me want to think about what I just wrote…lol. I know about how I wrote how Sasuke said "smiling was gay." I'm sorry (even if it was funny –laughs- I MEAN…-sweat drops). I smile everyday too! D: So hit Sasuke. Not me. Yes. Sasuke can only smirk…if I'm correct. –Clears throat-
Sasuke: -shrugs- It's a habit.
Mshinata: Go listen to Breaking the Habit by Linkin Park. It should teach you something.
Sasuke: Isn't that band…old?
Mshinata: NO!!! IT IS NOT OLD! I LOVE THAT BAND!
Sasuke: Tch. Whatever.
Mshinata: I know…I made Naru-chan smart…grr…I wanted him to have a role and BESIDES! xD Naru-chan has his smart moments…um…sometimes…
Naruto: Thanks! Wait…HEY!!!
Mshinata: I've proven my point, ofnonimportance. xD No, you can't die from smiling…but your muscles will get tired. Please, please, PLEASE ofnonimportance smack Sakura with your brother's skateboard. Make her bleed! –Smiles evilly-
Sasuke: Wow, you're nice…
Mshinata: Since when do you care about Sakura?
Sasuke: I don't. It's just…her big ego head might break the skateboard.
Mshinata: I'll just buy another one for her. Yeah…I've put a lot of thought into the second to the last part of your review, too. LOL!!! But, but, but…Sasuke's a big boy! He should go wash his good shirts. –Pouts- Sasuke, you have no good comebacks. Haha, you're so funny ofnonimportance. Hell, I wish I had a good sense of humor…
Sasuke: Yeah, 'cause you don't.
Mshinata: -sighs- Screw you. This is getting long…I do not own Naruto or any characters specified in this fan fic. Shikamaru, you are now under qwertygaz1213's control. Lol…but seriously I do not own Naruto. Omfg, enchantedmarshie18 said she was enchanted by my fan fics. –Sparkly eyes- CHECK OUR HER STORIES! SHE'S AWESOME!!! –Cheers- By the way, the most awesomest AMV maker EVA! –Smiles-
Itachi leaned against President's office door again. It seemed to be growing into a habit of his. He heard footsteps but ignored them anyways.
"Itachi-kun," Sasori said, walking towards him. "Don't you think this is going too far? Look at this…girl's sloppy work." Sasori refrained himself from using the word "slut."
"I know the picture's blurry, but at least it's good enough for Karin to make an article out of it." Itachi said, closing his eyes.
"This is going to affect your reputation deeply." Sasori said darkly. Itachi opened his eyes slowly and stood up straight. He turned his back from Sasori.
"If I can't win the game…then he can't either." Itachi said and walked away. He walked passed Deidara as he walked towards Sasori.
"What was that all about, Sasori no dana?" Deidara asked with a questioning look.
"He's just being immature and stubborn." Sasori sighed and stuffed his hands into his pockets.
"Oh…the article." Deidara grinned slyly. Sasori glared back.
"Don't smile. Itachi-kun's going to have a bad reputation if people find out he's the mastermind behind this article." Sasori said.
"…how is this affecting us?" Deidara asked bluntly.
"Tch. President will have a bad reputation which will affect Akatsuki. Someone will want to sue us and put us out of business." Sasori replied impatiently.
"Yeah, yeah." Deidara rolled his eyes. "All 'cause of one guy's mistake to love a girl."
"This is not funny." Sasori glared at him again.
"Okay, okay! Sasori no dana, you can be the most annoying person ever." Deidara said. "So what are we supposed to do about it?"
"…Not sure. Tsunade-sama's been keeping the news on models top secret, too. It's been hard to see what they've been up to." Sasori said.
"You have a good point there," Deidara waved a finger in the air. "Demo…Tsunade-sama knows Itachi-kun is behind all this mess." Sasori's eyes widened.
"…why so quickly?" Sasori asked.
"Don't know." Deidara shrugged. "She also knows her very own student, Haruno Sakura, has something to do with it, too."
"Stupid Karin…" Sasori muttered under his breath.
"Don't worry so much Sasori no dana…" Deidara suddenly smirked. "If Akatsuki's going to be sued…then Tsunade-sama's modeling agency will also be sued…for having Sakura…and Karin." Sasori nodded.
"Tch." Sasori ran a hand through his hair. Konan came out from President's office.
"Did you…need anything?" Konan blinked. Sasori shook his head.
"It's alright. Itachi-kun just left…so there's no reason for us to be staying here." Sasori sighed.
"Is there something wrong?" Konan asked worriedly.
"Iie." Sasori replied. "I think President's figured it out by now…" Konan reluctantly nodded and returned to President's office.
"Say…" Deidara started as he caught up with Sasori walking down the hall. "Where does Itachi-kun go after…work?" Sasori shrugged.
"He's also been missing out on meetings, too." Sasori nodded. "He's probably avoiding scolding at any costs. He thinks what he's doing is right." Deidara sighed.
"So now what?" Deidara asked.
"Looks like we're going to have to see what Sasuke and Hinata have to say." Sasori replied hesitantly.
"So do you mind-" Sasuke started.
"No." Neji replied.
"But you're her-"
"…like I care."
The two geniuses, Sasuke and Neji, were fighting again. Neji really thought Sasuke had good terms with him but now…he was just pissing him off.
"Your problem. You fix it." Neji said plainly as he stuffed his hands in his pockets. They were heading towards the Uchiha estate after a long talk in the café at night.
"It's late. I'd hate to beat you up in the dark." Sasuke said, his words bleeding with threats as he walked beside him.
"You're a big boy now. At least I hope so." Neji mocked and rolled his eyes. Sasuke glared at Neji, but Neji ignored it.
"Don't you want your cousin to be happy?" Sasuke raised a brow.
"Of course, but as soon as you two began dating…I put you in charge of her. You are the boyfriend…I hope." Neji smirked. Sasuke scoffed.
"I don't want to put up with you." Sasuke said coldly.
"Same." Neji said. Sasuke glared at Neji and he did the same.
They arrived at the Uchiha estate…apparently everyone was already asleep, including Isumi. Hinata was moved from the couch since that's the last place he saw her.
"Let's tell her in the morning." Neji said, entering the huge estate. He scanned the living room…this wasn't the first time he saw…rather lived in a mansion…
Sasuke nodded. "It would be best. We don't want her to worry."
"I'll be going then. Ja ne." Neji turned his back from Sasuke and made a curt wave. He closed the door gently. He sighed. He hated how people just wanted to ruin Hinata's life. It was just…wrong. Tch. He scoffed. Neji quickened his pace. He just wanted to get home.
"Neji-kun," A woman in a sweater with a hood said with curiosity in her voice. He turned around. Neji didn't reply. The woman took off her hood and continued to look at Neji curiously.
"Yamanaka-san," Neji replied.
"What are you doing here out so late?" Ino asked, putting her hands on her hips.
"I could ask you the same." Neji said with an expressionless face. She blushed from embarrassment. Ino laughed nervously. She cleared her throat.
"I just…was going to go see if Hinata-chan was alright…since…" Ino trailed off, thinking it wasn't the best time to tell Neji about Sakura.
"Is it about Haruno Sakura?" Neji raised a brow.
"Eh?! How did you-" Ino was interrupted by Neji.
"She somehow called our apartment." Neji said, crossing his arms. Ino sweat dropped.
"Ha…I never knew Sakura was a stalker." Ino laughed nervously.
"Hn." Neji replied.
"Guess there's no reason to visit her…" Ino mumbled to herself while she scratched her cheek with her pointer finger.
"I'll walk you." Neji sighed.
"Eh?! H-hell no!" Ino blushed. "It's dark and I don't want to cause you any more trouble." Ino stammered. Neji raised a brow.
"I can say the same." Neji said. "Since…girls are so vulnerable." He started walking closer towards her.
"…what is that supposed to mean?!" Ino shouted.
"Hn. Let's just go." Neji's shoulder brushed off with hers. Ino pouted angrily.
"Fine." She said and caught up with Neji.
Sasuke bolted up for the tenth time, sitting in his bed.
"Ugh," He scratched the back of his neck. "How am I supposed to do this…?" The moon was out tonight, so he got out of bed and stared out of his window. The moon was in clear view from his window. Sasuke needed time to think…what would Hinata do? The best thing to do was quit the movie and live a happy life with Sasuke. That's what he thought…but of course…there's always a chance that somehow Hinata gained some new confidence and wanted to deal with the fan girls and go on with the movie. He sighed.
Sasuke heard the front door close and swiftly ran to it.
"Itachi…" Sasuke clenched his fists, glaring at his brother. Itachi closed his eyes and walked past his brother. "Why have you been coming home so late…nii-san?" Itachi stopped walking.
"Work." He simply replied in an irritated voice.
"Work…is it?" Sasuke said mockingly. Itachi finally turned around to face his brother. "How dare you indirectly hurt Hinata-chan like that…?" His words seethed with anger.
"…I would never hurt Hinata-san, brother. I think you would know by now." Itachi responded.
"Don't be such a smart ass!" Sasuke grabbed his brother's shirt and gripped it tight. "You know what you did…"
"Tch." Itachi scoffed. "If I can't have her…then you can't either." Sasuke let go of his shirt.
"You act as if Hinata-chan is an object that needs an owner." Sasuke said angrily.
"Love can be very competitive…then again…I do not feel that anymore." Itachi said.
"And why is that?" Sasuke raised a brow.
"All I can feel…is hatred." Itachi whispered darkly. He quickly grabbed Sasuke by the throat and against the wall. Sasuke choked. "You are…lucky…she's one in a million you know."
"Y-you…b-bastard…" Sasuke managed to say.
"P-please…! Stop!" A weak voice cried out and tried to pull Itachi's hand off of Sasuke. Itachi, with no consideration, pushed the figure aside, making the figure fall to the ground.
"H-Hinata-chan!" Sasuke saw this and shouted. Itachi turned around to see a frightened Hinata on the ground. He saw the fear in her eyes…it made him…somehow…excited…but ashamed. "Bastard!" Sasuke saw an opening and used his right foot to kick his brother in the abdomen.
"S-Sasuke-kun!" Hinata squeaked out. Sasuke fell to the floor, coughing and touching his throat. He coughed harder. "S-Sasuke-kun…p-please…" Hinata put an arm around her coughing love. "I-Itachi-kun…how…how could you?" Hinata started to cry.
"Hinata-san…" Itachi said softly. He was on the ground, but clutching his stomach. He flinched from the powerful kick.
"What's happening?!" Isumi ran out of her room and saw the situation. "What happened to Sasuke-sama?!" She asked nervously.
"I'm…I'm alright." Sasuke said, his panting eased. He faced Hinata. "Gomen…for making you worry." She smiled while a tear rolled down her cheek. Hinata embraced Sasuke and he tightly held her back.
"Baka." Hinata mumbled. Itachi saw this…he knew…he knew it was enough. He had…lost.
"Itachi-sama." Isumi walked towards the fallen Uchiha. "Are you…alright?" Isumi said, looking at the hand that was covering his stomach.
"Yeah." Itachi removed the hand from his stomach. He stood up but then became a little wobbly. Isumi was there in time to help support him.
"Please get some rest, Itachi-sama." Isumi said, putting his arm around her shoulder. Itachi nodded.
"I think that would be best." He replied. They slowly made their way to Itachi's room, his camera dangling from his neck. "I think I can get to bed now." Isumi smiled a genuine smile. "Arigato." he kissed her on the forehead and said goodnight.
"D-demo…are you sure you're alright?" Hinata asked, as the two walked into the hallway. She looked up worriedly at him.
"Yeah." Sasuke rubbed his throat. "It just throbs a little. It's fine." He closed his eyes. They arrived at each other's room and stared at each other.
"U-um…" Hinata started. "G-good night…"
"I don't think I can have one." Sasuke said. "Damn," he touched his head. "Now my head throbs too."
"D-do…you n-need me to s-sleep with you?" Hinata asked worriedly, walking up to him and caressing his cheek.
He gave her an expressionless look. The words finally registered into her mind, and she blushed deep crimson red.
"G-gomenasai!" Hinata bowed. "I didn't m-mean it…t-that way…" Hinata managed to stutter out. Sasuke's mouth turned into a smirk.
"That's alright." He patted her head. "Demo, arigato. You get some rest, too." Hinata nodded. They both bid each other a good night and closed their doors shut.
Hinata dropped down on her bed and pulled the covers over her. Too much was happening…but…she hoped she could regain the friendship that was lost with Itachi…
"Gaara-kun," Ino called out. Gaara blushed a bit and averted her gaze. She ran towards him. "Eh? What's wrong?" They were all at the modeling agency where they were going to film the last scene. The kissing scene.
"Iie. N-nothing." Gaara said, looking at the wall. Ino laughed.
"Is that wall so interesting that you'd rather look at it than me?" Ino giggled. Gaara's blush worsened. He couldn't get the thought of Ino touching his arm. A girl never touched him. No girl would dare…but he let her. Strange really…
"In any event," Ino stood up straight. "The kiss scene is today. Tsunade-sama and President have talked it over."
"Does…Hinata know?" Gaara asked, finally looking at Ino. Ino shook her head.
"I told Neji-kun who called me this morning that he told Sasuke-kun…but…it was so late at night. I think Sasuke-kun would tell her today…" Ino pondered.
"In such a late notice? Wouldn't Hinata get mad?" Gaara raised a brow. Ino shrugged.
"She just has to make a choice. And it has to be today." Ino said. Gaara sighed.
"Damn…" He cursed.
"Gaara," Temari walked over to him.
"Has Hinata-chan arrived yet, Temari-chan?" Ino looked over at Temari. She shook her head.
"Demo," Temari started. "Guess who arrived today?" Gaara and Ino blinked. "Itachi."
Ino's eyes widened. "Really?!"
"Yeah…suddenly…he's back to his normal polite self." Temari wondered.
"Hn." Gaara replied, stuffing his hands into his pockets. He definitely didn't care.
"Well then, that's a problem that has been fixed. We can finally shoot with Itachi here." Ino smiled. "Now all we need is Hinata's decision…"
"Hey guys." TenTen walked over to the trio. "You were talking about Hinata and Sasuke?" Everyone nodded except for Gaara. "I don't understand why Hinata can just marry Sasuke and run away." (Haha, arigato Kaguya-chan! xD Loved your review.)
"I don't know…'cause that's going to cause a lot of trouble…?" Ino rolled her eyes.
"Hello." A familiar fake smile greeted them.
"Sai, what are you doing here?" Gaara raised a brow.
"I was called here upon Tsunade-sama's request. She said it was important…" Sai said.
"I see…are you watching us film the kissing scene?" Temari asked.
"Don't know…" Sai pondered. "But…I really have to get to Tsunade-sama. Good luck on the filming." He made a curt wave as he walked away.
"Ohayo." Hinata walked over to the group.
"Hinata-chan!" TenTen and Ino cried out. Sasuke suddenly stepped beside Hinata.
"Oi Sasuke-kun," Ino pulled Sasuke aside from the rest of the group. "Did you tell Hinata about…Sa…Sakura?" Ino whispered. She almost choked on Sakura's name. Sasuke had forgotten and felt like an idiot inside, but he didn't show it.
"Iie." Sasuke replied plainly.
"Baka!" Ino hit Sasuke on the head.
"What was that for?" Sasuke rubbed his head. "Especially when my head was throbbing last night…"
"Tell her…NOW!" Ino whispered angrily. Sasuke sighed.
"Fine." Sasuke and Ino walked back to the group.
"So…" Ino started off. "I think we need to go somewhere."
"Eh? We do?" TenTen blinked. Temari caught on fast and pulled on TenTen's sleeve.
"Yeah. We do." Temari said, dragging TenTen along.
"Eh?! Where are we going?" TenTen asked questionably.
"Not here." Gaara rolled his eyes and left with Ino. After everybody had left, it was time for Sasuke to tell Hinata.
"…Hinata-chan." Sasuke started.
"Hm?" Hinata blinked, confused.
"About…the movie." Sasuke said. Hinata nodded. "Er…"
"I can take it." Hinata said. "I took the kissing thing quite well."
"No, you didn't." Sasuke rolled his eyes. Hinata blushed from embarrassment. "Anyways…about the…kissing scene, actually."
"Y-yeah." Hinata said.
"I have to ask…would you still film here…even if…fan girls attack you." Sasuke asked carefully. Hinata pondered.
"Well…you're here to protect me…so…of course." Hinata answered thoughtfully.
"So I guess you're going to keep being in this movie." Sasuke said. Hinata nodded. "O-okay." Hinata observed Sasuke's strange behavior. It was weird for him to act so nervous…or anxious.
"Yeah! Right there!"
"UGH! EVERYWHERE HE'S WITH THAT HYUUGA GIRL!"
"Well, they're dating!"
"We have to attack her!"
"Let's get her!"
The fan girls ran towards Hinata with fiery eyes, but was then stopped by three fast…bodyguards? Sasuke covered Hinata with protecting arms but noticed the strange men that were helping them.
"Damn!" Someone cursed from behind a wall. The person came out from behind and put her hand on her hip. She clicked her tongue. "So close…"
"Sa…ku…ra…" Sasuke said darkly.
"Having trouble, Hinata?" Sai walked in the scene with that fake smile of his…but it seemed to be more genuine this time.
"U-um…" Hinata was confused.
"These fan girls somehow found out about where we were shooting this scene…they found out from a…" Sai turned to Sakura. "…reliable source."
"You always ruin my fun, Sai-kun!" Sakura scolded him.
"I always have to accomplish my mission. Gomen. I just called help from my comrades, and all they had to do was hold the fan girls back." He gave her his fake smile again. "Fortunately, if Itachi hadn't told me about this…you all would have been in deep trouble."
"Itachi…?" Sasuke asked, surprised. Sai nodded.
"It was strange for him…but anyways…Haruno Sakura, you are in deep trouble." Sai turned back to the pink-haired girl.
"I just…I just wanted to shoot a scene with Sasuke-kun…" Sakura sniffed. Hinata, being the nice person, patted her shoulder.
"I know a person who you always shot a scene with…" Hinata smiled, taking her hand back.
"W-who?! There's no one else but Sasuke-kun…who's in my mind…all the time." Sakura looked down at the floor.
"Sakura-chan!" The loud blonde happy boy ran over to where they were. "Guess what?! I begged Tsunade-sama for you not to be punished." Naruto laughed and panted. "She said I had to give up ramen though…it was worth it!" He laughed even more.
"N-Naruto…" Sakura looked at him. He was her best friend. The guy who never left her side…even if she was being selfish, rude, and always demanding. Tears started to form in her eyes. "A-Arigato…"
"Eh? Why are you crying, Sakura-chan? Is it because I said something?!" Naruto said, grabbing her shoulders. She shook her head.
"Iie." Sakura replied.
"Good." Naruto flashed a toothy grin. "Let's film the scene…now shall we?" Sakura nodded. "Let's go Hinata-chan! Sasuke!"
"Suzaku…" The girl in his arms looked at him with half-opened eyes.
"What is it…hime?" (Princess.) He asked. They were on the ground. Hinata had just pretended to faint while Sasuke caught her in his strong arms. Hinata genuinely smiled.
"P-please…call me…Hinagiku." Hinata said. Sasuke's eyes widened. He smiled.
"H-hai!" He held the girl close to his chest.
"Suzaku…" The girl whispered. "Can I…tell you…a secret?"
"Hai…anything…Hinagiku." Sasuke smiled.
"I…love you." Hinata smiled.
"Hinagiku…if I were ever to say that…your sister would be furious." Sasuke said. He leaned in close to Hinata's face and cupped it. The natural blush was on Hinata's face while Sasuke's face remained the same. They both shared a chaste kiss and broke apart slowly.
"W-wow…" Hinata and Sasuke both said as they stood up.
"That was…" Hinata started.
"…blissful." Sasuke said with a real smile.
Ino and TenTen cried tears of joy because of the beautiful ending. Temari smirked and nodded. Gaara remained expressionless but felt glad…for Hinata at least. Never for Sasuke. Sai smiled a fake smile. Sakura looked…sad but leaned on Naruto's shoulder for comfort. Naruto gave Sasuke a flashy smile. Itachi looked…somewhat sad…but relieved. He still had time…he just needed to find the right girl. Tsunade and President both liked the kissing scene. Everyone clapped because of how beautiful it was.
"Hinata-san," Itachi walked towards Hinata.
"Itachi-kun," Hinata smiled.
"I think it's best…if we don't do the kiss scene for us two." Itachi said.
"U-um…alright…" Hinata answered unsurely. Itachi nodded.
"I believe it's right. I am not a kind person if I were to come in between you and…my brother." Itachi said.
"Then…arigato…Itachi-kun." Hinata said.
After the movie came out, Naruto surprisingly gained a lot more fans. The character that he played was so cute in the fans' eyes. The fan club of Sasuke stayed loyal to him but respected Hinata…because they thought he was going to dump her soon. Sai became Sasuke and Hinata's personal bodyguard…much to his dislike of Sasuke. Gaara had returned to Suna to take up his father's business while Temari decided to stay and work for Tsunade. Ino traveled everywhere with Sasuke and Hinata now…she designed both their clothes. And for TenTen…she quit her modeling job and decided to become Sasuke and Hinata's manager. Itachi resumed to his photography career and the Akatsuki was normal again. Isumi returned to her studies in Middle school and began to plan her future.
As for Neji, Ino, and Gaara…well…let's just let another fan fic tell their story.
"So Hinata-chan…" Sasuke started as they were holding hands and going to go take some photos at the modeling agency. "The model…? Or the photographer?"
"Hmm…the model." Hinata said happily.
"You sure?" Sasuke raised a brow.
"Yes." Hinata answered confidently. She couldn't be more sure than ever.
Mshinata: Aww…this is over. –Cries- I'LL MISS THIS STORY TOO MUCH! –Cries-
Sasuke: Yeah, okay. –Sweat drops- Damn woman, get your own tissues! You can't use those shirts that are already clean! Those are mine!
Mshinata: But they're…soft.
Sasuke: Tissues are too.
Mshinata: Actually, Sakura's alright…I just…don't feel as if I like her…too much. I don't know. I feel neutral to her (again to those who think I hate her).
Sasuke: Right, right…
Mshinata: I didn't want to focus on GaaIno and NejiIno. Someone could write a review saying that they want to write a GaaIno and NejiIno fan fic of after the movie. –Smiles- It would be very sweet. I'm sorry…if…I left those couples kind of hanging. I didn't want to leave out the SasuHina love. xD Yay! Marshie-chan said she'll write me a SasuHina fan fic. Haha…her fan fics are awesome…again by the way. xD Until the next fan fic!
Everyone: Ja ne!
