a/n: I no i havent updated any stories for a while...ok, maybe a long while, but i promise i will! here's my newest fanfic! enjoy!
Chapter One

The snow drifted down onto Konoha, painting it a sparkling white. Hinata Hyuuga lay awake in bed, unable to sleep. She had got up and lay back down in bed so many times she had lost count. She sighed. All she could think about was the blond who had captured her heart all those years ago. She blushed from just thinking about him.

She rolled off her bed and walked up to the calendar on her bedroom wall. There was a certain date circled in red—the 25th. Just three days from today.

Christmas, she thought. She wished she could confess her feelings for the blond, but she just couldn't build up the courage. And he surely wasn't going to say anything to her any time soon. She looked from the calendar to the beautifully wrapped present on her dresser. The present she had worked so hard on making, just for that special blond.

She picked up the present and gazed at it for a while. Maybe I can just leave it at his doorstep. He won't know it's from me, but at least he'll get the present, she thought hopefully.

"Oh, who am I kidding," she whispered to herself. "I'd never be able to do that." She gently placed the present on the dresser and walked to the window. The snow is so pretty…It's so pure. It doesn't have anything to worry about. All it has to is just drift down and lay there—

A voice interrupted her thoughts. "Hinata-sama?" it asked. Hinata turned around quickly to see her cousin, Neji Hyuuga, standing at the door of her bedroom, rubbing his eyes sleepily. She didn't remember opening the door before.

"Ah! Nii-san!" Hinata cried. She grabbed the present and hid it behind her back. Neji looked at her with a blank face, then looked down the hall, mumbling, "What are you doing up so early?"

Hinata glanced at the digital clock by her bed, which read 4: 48 A.M. "Uh…I couldn't sleep," Hinata muttered, looking away.

"Uh…alright," Neji mumbled.

Hinata stayed quiet, hoping he would leave.

"I'm going back to bed," Neji finally said with a yawn. Hinata sighed in relief as he walked back into his room. She opened a drawer and delicately put the present in. She turned around, leaning against the wardrobe. She slowly slid to the floor and leaned her head back against the cold wood, suddenly tired.

Then she heard a soft tap at her window. She snapped her head up the sound and saw a blurry figure at the window. Someone must've climbed up the branches of the huge tree next to the Hyuuga mansion. Hinata was so scared, she could barely breathe. She heard the taps again. Whoever was out there sure was persistent.

She stood up slowly, shaking with fear. She looked around for a weapon, any kind of weapon. The nearest thing was a pair of high heels. She grabbed one and quietly walked to the window. She threw the window open and screamed as she flung the high heel at the person who was there.

"Hey, Hinata-cha—OW! HOLY CRAP, MY EYE!" a too familiar voice shouted as the high heel hit its mark. The an "AAAAAHHHH!" was heard, followed by some rustling in the tree and a loud thud.

"Oh my God, N-N-Naruto-kun!" Hinata cried out, her face bright red. She ran down the stairs and out the front door to the base of the tree where Naruto had fallen, praying that no one woke up from all the commotion.

She stared down at Naruto, who lay unconscious on the snow. "Ah, he's un-unconscious!" she cried. She bent down next to him, doing everything she could to wake him up, but nothing worked. She was going have to have to bring him inside!

"Oh no, no, no, no, no!" she said, shaking her head as soon as the thought came into her head. But she had to look down at him only once, and in a few moments, with much struggle, the blue-haired kunoichi had dragged him up to her room. She pulled him up on the bed and noticed he was sweating. Probably from all the clothes he had on. It was pretty cold today.

She blushed deeply at the thought of undressing him, but he was sweating profusely and looked very uncomfortable. Might as well get it over with, she thought. Her fingers trembled as she unbuttoned his jacket and gently took it off. As she started on the orange sweater underneath, the blond slowly opened his eyes halfway.

"Mm…Hinata-chan?" he murmured. He widened his eyes when he saw Hinata-chan holding the sweater that was almost fully taken off of his body. They both turned beet red and screamed. Hinata ran out of the room, down the hall into the bathroom, locking the door behind her.

Naruto, still in shock, managed to sit up and take the sweater off. He stood up shakily and stumbled out into the hall. Wait a minute...why was I in Hinata's room?!

Looks like got lucky, kid. You should use this wonderful opportunity and get the girl in bed with y—

Shut up! Naruto thought, his face getting redder. I wouldn't do that to her!

That's what they all say before they experience how good it is to have—

I said SHUT UP!

The Kyuubi chuckled. Alright, kid. Whatever helps you sleep at night.

Thank you.

Which is that girl. The Kyuubi grinned.


Naruto just stood there, fuming, when he heard a click. He looked toward the sound and noticed that Hinata had unlocked the bathroom door. She stepped outside closing the bathroom door behind her. Just as she spotted Naruto, she froze.

"H-Hinata-chan?" Naruto asked, advancing slowly.

Her face turned a deep shade of red. "Kyaa!" she screamed as she ran at Naruto, pushing him out of the way as she ran into her room. Naruto went after her.

"Hinata-chan!" he yelled as he ran in moments later. He saw her huddled up in a corner, as bright as a tomato. He walked up to her, not sure what to say. She glanced up at him, noticing he was staring down her. She immediately turned away, embarrassed.

"Uh, Hinata-chan…I, uh, understand what you were doing to…me. I remember…sorta," Naruto muttered, looking away from her. She gave no reply. "Um…I'm guessing I was knocked unconscious when I fell off that tree after you…yeah, and you brought me in, right?"

She nodded.

"Thank you."

Hinata looked up at him. Naruto couldn't stand looking at her without blushing, so he averted his gaze to the open drawer with a small, wrapped present. "Hey, what's this…?" Just as he reached down to pick it up, Hinata screamed, "No!" and flung a textbook at the poor blond. He turned just to have the textbook smash into face. "AAAUUUGGHHH!" he cried as he fell back, banging his head against the wardrobe. He held his face, moaning in pain.

"N-N-Naruto-kun! I-I'm so s-sorry!" Hinata stuttered. She ran over to him and gently pulled his hands away from his face. And regretted it as she felt all the blood rush to her head. He was too close. She felt a little dizzy and fainted onto Naruto. He caught her with one hand while holding his throbbing head with another. He picked her up and lay her down on her bed.

For a while, he just watched her, the rise and fall of her chest, the peaceful look on her face. She was beautiful. He began playing with a strand of her long, dark hair. Soon, he fell asleep, his head on her stomach.

XxX xXx XxX

Neji groaned as the sunlight shone on his face. He squinted his eyes as soon as he opened them and got up. He walked out of his room and looked at the clock in the hall.

6 o'clock, Neji thought. I can sleep for another half hour. No one would mind.

He went under the covers, and his eyelids slowly closed.


"Holy—!" Neji shouted, sitting up in bed, startled. He closed his eyes and muttered, "Jeez." He heard Hanabi complain in the room opposite his.

"Shut up!" she screamed to her dad.

For a few moments, everything was silent. Neji and Hanabi both relished this quiet, well, for as long as it lasted, anyway. In a few moments, loud, thunderous steps could be heard as Hiashi made his way up the stairs.

He stomped into Neji's room, grabbed him by the collar of his shirt, got Hanabi the same way, then dragged them both to Hinata's room. Hiashi slammed the door open to his oldest daughter's room, opening his mouth to yell but fell silent at the sight before him: The container of the Kyuubi, that blond, idiotic rascal, with his head on his daughter's chest while she slept.

Neji twitched and Hanabi's eyes grew wide. "Hinata nee-chan has a boyfriend!" Hanabi cried, moments before Hiashi dropped her and Neji onto the floor, charging at Naruto with so much killing intent that both Naruto's and Hinata's eyes sprung open from feeling it nearby.

Naruto turned to see the infuriated Hyuuga running at him, full speed, screaming, "YOU SON OF A BITCH, GET OFF MY DAUGHTER!"

Naruto and Hinata both screamed.
