Chapter One: The Confession

Naruto walked down the cold, dimly lit streets of the Village hidden in the Leaves. It was his seventeenth Christmas Eve and, like always,

he had no one to spend it with. He continued walking down the frozen streets, snow beginning to fall around him. He stopped and looked up into the night sky, the winter stars shining brighter than they had been in years. He began to pick out constellations, unaware of the blue haired ninja who watched him from a distance.

Hinata watched Naruto as he walked forlornly through the frosted streets, her lavender eyes shining in the light of the street lamps and the familiar pink hue appearing in her cheeks. In her arms were three packages, two of them gifts for her teammates, Shino and Kiba, and one for someone very special to her. She was worried about Naruto; every year every person in the Village spent Christmas with either family or friends, everybody except Naruto.

He seems so lonely….. Hinata thought moving out of the shadows to get a better look at the blonde boy, whom she had admired and respected ever since she first met him, adjusting the white scarf around her neck, If only I could……make him happier…..

She suddenly stepped on a pile of hard snow, which crunched loudly under her feet. Naruto turned around and was shocked to see Hinata.

"Hinata-chan?" He asked, his cheeks becoming slightly red. "What are you doing out so late?"

Naruto had begun to like Hinata, she was different from all the other girls; she was kind and caring. She would listen to what he had to say and wouldn't say mean things to him or tell him he was stupid. She was special

Hinata's face became as red as cherry. She fumbled with the packages in her arms, "I was just going to deliver these packages to Shino-kun and Kiba-kun." She said nervously, looking down at the snow-covered ground. "When I saw you looking so lonely…..I…I wanted to make sure you were ok…..but I didn't want to ask…..so…so…"

Naruto smiled. Does she really care about me this much? He thought walking over to her.

Hinata looked up at Naruto, her cheeks redder than before, if it was at all possible. Naruto gave her his familiar smile, saying cheerfully, "I'll go with you to deliver the gifts. It's the least I can do."

Hinata couldn't believe what she was hearing. Her heart began to beat furiously in her chest. She gave a small nod and said quietly, "Let's go to Shino-kun's house first…it's closer…"

Naruto and Hinata then walked in the direction of Shino's house, talking with one another joyfully. Hinata's blush had almost disappeared by the time they arrived at Shino's door.

As the two talked with Shino, two other ninja spied on them from across the street.

The first was a young man, about nineteen years of age with black hair cut like a bowl around his hair with strange-looking eyes. He wore a green jumpsuit and vest with yellow leg warmers and had white bandages wrapped around his muscled arms. His name, Rock Lee.

The other was a young woman, around the same age as Lee. She had long, light brown hair that fell to the middle of her back. Her blue eyes glowed in the warm light of the lamps around them and a golden pendent around her neck shined just as brilliantly as her eyes. She wore a white jacket, matching pink gloves and earmuffs, and light blue pants and had a pink and blue-stripped scarf wrapped around her neck. She was Akari Matsumoto, she looked after Naruto like a little brother and lived only two apartments away from him. (Akari is my OC!!!! XD)

Both ninjas knew the feelings Naruto and Hinata shared for one another and wanted to bring them together.

"We really need those two to confess their love for one another." Akari whispered to Lee, watching Hinata had her gift to Shino.

"Yes," Lee agreed, "It's about time, but how will we do it?"

Akari was silent for several moments, thinking of a clever plan. It then hit her. "I got it!" She whispered her plan into Lee's ear, who giggled at the mere thought of it. When Naruto and Hinata were on the move again, they quietly followed them, chuckling in unison at their diabolical scheme.

When Naruto and Hinata left Shino's house, they continued talking together. Naruto, feeling confident about what he was about to do, put his strong arm around Hinata's thin shoulders, blushing slightly. Hinata couldn't believe that Naruto was putting his arm around her and leaned against his body.

As they arrived at Kiba's house, Hinata rang the bell. Kiba appeared at the door, a bit surprised at the sight before him.

"Merry Christmas, Kiba-kun!" Hinata said happily as she handed him one of the two remaining packages, "This is a gift for you."

Once he had gotten over it, he smiled and took the present. "Thanks Hinata! So, are you two now a couple?" He asked.

Naruto and Hinata looked at one another, forgetting that Naruto had his arm around her and pulled away from one another, their cheeks flushing.

Kiba laughed, "Well, it was nice seeing you guys. Merry Christmas!"

The two waved goodbye to Kiba and once again, walked together in the streets.

Meanwhile……

Akari was on Lee's shoulders, trying to hang up something in the edge of an archway in the park, but was having trouble.

"Lee!" Akari said trying to keep herself balanced, "Keep still will ya! I can't hang this thing up if you keep moving about!"

Lee, who had never had any woman sit on his shoulders, was trying his best to stand still, but couldn't considering Akari's thighs were pressed against the sides of his face and her womanhood was pushing up against the back of his head.

"I-I'm sorry!" he said nervously, looking down at the floor, so he wouldn't peer up at her breasts, which were directly above him, "I-I haven't held anyone like this in a while, so it's a little hard to get balanced!"

"Ugh…" Akari scoffed, "Just try to stay still…."

She reached up, realizing she still couldn't reach and then pushed herself up, pressing her thighs and womanhood tighter against Lee's head. At this point, Lee was about to bleed from his nose at the new sensations rushing through his body, but was stopped by Akari's success in sticking the object in her hand to the Archway.

"Got it!" she said happily.

Once she said those words, Lee's legs gave way and he crumbled to the ground. Akari landed on top of him, her lips only inches away from his. Her cheeks flushed a deep crimson and for several seconds, she and Lee remained in that position until they heard Naruto and Hinata's footsteps coming from around the corner. The two ducked behind a nearby bush and waited to watch the fun….

Naruto and Hinata had been silent ever since they left Kiba's house. When they reached the Archway, Naruto suddenly broke the silence.

"Why did you follow me tonight, Hinata-chan?"

Hinata stopped. She slowly turned to Naruto, her cheeks a light pink color, "I-I…." she stuttered, "I've always known how lonely you were during Christmas….so…this year, I wanted to make sure you weren't alone….."

Naruto was shocked at what he was hearing.

"I….I made you a gift……" Hinata continued, unwrapping the parcel that still remained in her slender arms. From the wrapping she pulled out a bright, red scarf with tassels and the name "Naruto" knitted in white letters at the end. She wrapped the scarf around Naruto's neck, having to stand on tiptoe to reach his level.

"I didn't know if you would like it or not….but I wanted to make sure you had a gift this year…" Hinata finished, placing her feet firmly on the ground and looking away from him.

Naruto looked at the scarf and came close to tears. He looked down at the ground so Hinata wouldn't see his tears. "You….made this?" he asked, "For me?"

Hinata nodded and looked up at Naruto. She could barely see the tears falling from his eyes, but did see them and thought she had done the wrong thing. "I-I'm so sorry!" she blurted out, looking about nervously, "I-I'll get you something else if you don't like it!"

Naruto suddenly pulled Hinata close to his body, embracing her. Hinata was shocked at this action and simply remained in his arms, out of words to say.

"Its perfect…." Naruto whispered into her ear, tightening his hold on her, "You don't need to do anything…."

Hinata's eyes began to water. She forced herself not to cry and placed her arms up against Naruto's chest.

"But…" Naruto asked, pulling her away from him slightly, gazing into her lavender eyes, "What can I give you as a gift in return?"

Hinata was trying to think of a present Naruto could give her, when suddenly a wave of red above her caught her attention. She looked up and her eyes widened with a mixture of joy and surprise.

"Look Naruto…." Hinata said quietly.

Naruto followed Hinata's gaze and blushed slightly at what he saw.

Above them, tacked to the Archway, with a red ribbon tied around it, was a mistletoe branch.

Hinata and Naruto Gazed at one another, both thinking the same thing. They leaned closer to one another, closing their eyes and waiting for the feeling to come.

It was truly a wonderful kiss. One that Hinata, Naruto, Lee or Akari would ever forget. Naruto and Hinata broke the kiss, their cheeks as red as the scarf tied around Naruto's neck.

"That…." Hinata whispered, "was all I wanted for Christmas."

Naruto held Hinata against his body, whispering, "I love you so much, Hinata-chan."

Hinata wrapped her arms around Naruto's neck, tears falling from her eyes, "I love you too Naruto-kun!"

Akari's face was beaming with joy at the sight before her. "They did it!" she whispered quietly to Lee, who was also mad with joy.

"So beautiful!" Lee agreed.

After several minutes of silence between Naruto and Hinata, they left in the direction of Naruto's Apartment, hand in hand, their hearts forever entwined.

When they were out of sight, Akari and Lee came out of their hiding place and stood where the two lovers had previously embraced one another. Akari wiped her hands together and them placed them on her hips, smiling.

"Well," Akari said cheerfully, "Looks like our work here is finished. Let's go get some hot chocolate!"

She turned away, when suddenly Lee grabbed her arm and pulled her toward him. Akari looked at him with bright eyes and flushed cheeks.

"What are you doing?" she asked nervously.

Lee pointed up at the mistletoe above them, smiling. "You know the rule about standing under the mistletoe." He said devilishly.

Akari smiled sheepishly and knew what was coming. She leaned in for the kiss and felt the warm sensation of love flood through her body. Lee placed his hand on her ass, softly squeezing before picking her up bridal style.

"What do you say we head back to your apartment and celebrate Christmas together?" Lee asked with a hint of lust in his voice.

Akari hugged him and nodded furiously. This is the best Christmas ever!

Well, that's the first chapter! Don't worry, there's gonna be more action between not just Naruto and Hinata, but Lee and Akari as well!!! ;3

Stay tuned for the next chapter: An Evening in Heaven
