My Typical What?
I don't own Naruto.
A/N: This is my first Fanfic so please don't be mean. Um, I think that's it for now. See bottom notes.
I was walking – No that's an understatement. I was practically sprinting – to school like I always did…but this time I was late. Now, you're probably thinking "So she's just a couple minutes late. No big deal, right?" Wrong. I have never, and I mean never, been late for school before and I pride myself with my perfect attendance. And, yes, I am aware of how nerdy that sounded.
Anyways, when I got to school there was this kid standing there like he was waiting for someone. I was to far way to see who it was from where I was standing, so I leaned forward and peered closely at the person. Oh! It's a guy. One of my best friend's cousins. Neji Hyuuga, Hinata Hyuuga's cousin. Why the hell is he just standing there? Shouldn't he be in class?
"Oi! Are you okay?" I asked.
"You walk that way?"
No, I just like walking through the woods every morning and being late. Some genius.
"Yes, I walk that way. Now answer my question." I retorted.
"Come with me," he said.
"Why should I come with y-"
I was cut off by him pulling me into a side part of the school that I'd never seen before.
"You know we're gonna be really la-"
Once again I was cut off, but this time for a different reason. His lips crashed onto mine, my back pushed against the wall with Neji in front of me.
A variety of thoughts ran through my head as the kiss went on, most of which started with, 'what the hell?'. Not that I wasn't enjoying it, but it was my first kiss. I always imagined my first kiss a little more romantic than that. You know, under some weeping willow or something. But back to the crisis at hand. Now I was actually enjoying the kiss a lot…except there was this really irritating brick sticking out and it was right in the middle of my back. I didn't want to risk ruining the moment by moving so I didn't. Not that it mattered because a second later Neji pulled away.
"We are?" Then it hit me. I was late! I was never late! Alright, breathe. Breathe. Okay, I'm alright now.
"Then why are we standing here?!"
"I was waiting for you to calm down."
"Oh. Well, that was sweet of you."
We walked into the school in silence, not really knowing what to say. I mean we just were having a kissing fest a couple of minutes ago! What were we supposed to say? That was a lot of fun; we should do it again sometime? Yeah. No.
We were almost half way to my locker when Mr. Herman caught us. Busted.
Now, I have nothing against Mr. Herman, but apparently some other kid did waaaay back and gave him the nick name "Mr. Hair-man". This didn't really make any sense when you really think about because Mr. Herman is bald. At first I didn't get it when I first transferred to Miyagami High school (1) that is until we went on a school swimming trip. Yeah, seeing Mr. Herman without a shirt on, not pretty. Anyways, the man has hair on ever inch of his body except his head. You could make like three different sweaters if you shaved all his hair off! Gross. But, that's beside the point.
Mr. Hair-man called both of us into his office, and asked to talk to me first. I walked into his office and he cleared his throat.
"Tenten," he began "Why were you late, this morning?"
"I, uh, well..." I stumbled over different explanations, all of them starting to blur together.
"That's what I thought."
He pointed at the window. I walked over to the window, slightly confused, and looked out.
"Ms. Queen (2) do you see that brick?"
"When I came into my office this morning…"
I wasn't listening to him. I was to busy staring at that brick. The brick that was bugging me when Neji and I were kissing. Mr. Herman had caught me and Neji kissing! Oh shit.
"I'm afraid I'm going to have to call your mother."
My mom! Shit! If my mom found out that I was late for school because I was making out with my best friend's cousin I would definitely be grounded, not too mention my dad would spazz when he found out.
I was speechless. I didn't know what to say. So, I did the most logical thing. Begging.
"Mr. Herman, please don't call my mom! I'll do anything! I'll-I'll clean the chalkboard every day after school!"
"I'm sorry, Tenten; I have no choice! I don't think that it's appropriate to keep this from your mother. Don't you think she would want to know?"
I grumbled out a response about how she would actually rather not know, but Mr. Herman didn't hear me.
"You may leave now," he said solemnly.
I sulked out of the office, glancing at Neji on the way out.
"Where were you?" one of my best friends, Kasumi asked. "I didn't see you in homeroom."
"I left home late and Mr. Herman caught me sneaking in," I lied. Did I just lie? But I suck at lying! So... why did that come so naturally...
Doesn't matter! What's done is done!
-Groan- I thought you were gone!
Can't get rid of me that easily!!
"I'm amazed! The Tenten Queen was late?"
"Shut up, Ino."
"T-Tenten-san! I-I thought something happened to you!"
"I'm fine, Hinata."
"I have just met the love of my life!"
"Nice to see you to, Sakura, but I'm not really in the mood for your Sasuke rant today," I said.
"For your information, I'm so over Sasuke! I've moved onto greener pastures!"
"I didn't know their were greener pastures than Sasuke Uchiha."
Sakura Haruno has been obsessed with this guy named Sasuke Uchiha since the sixth grade. She's like our little gossip girl though. Always knows what's going on in our school.
As we were walking to our next class Hinata suddenly became an unnatural shade of red. Only one person can do that;Naruto Uzumaki. He's loud, obnoxious, and troublemaking, but Hinata adores the guy.
Speaking of which, Hinata is like our second mother, in a way. She tries to make sure we don't get in trouble and is really smart. Her drawings and paintings are pretty kick-ass too.
"Hey, Hinata!!" Naruto yelled.
Hinata's stuttering goes into overdrive around Naruto.
"Dobe, why are you so damn loud?"
"Shut up teme!"
"OK!" Kasumi interrupted, "Let's get to class!"
"Umm…Yeah!" I added.
Kasumi Uchiha is probably one of the most sarcastic people I know. (Besides her brothers of course.) She likes to play pranks and what not. Wears graphic t-shirt's all the time. Today's pick was "Sorry, I'm not fluent in idiot."
"After school today we have to go to the mall!" Ino said.
"Dare I ask why?" Kasumi asked, sarcasm in every word.
"Because I saw the perfect pair of black boots!"
We all sigh.
"Fine Ino," We said in unison.
She smiled in triumph.
We all took our seats and listened to Mr. Asuma drone on about the first World War.
God, this is boring. I mean, it already happened so why can't we just move on?
I let my eyes wander around the room in my boredom. Hinata looked like she might pass out any minute, while Naruto and Kiba Inuzuka were arguing over which was better, ramen or dogs.
Poor Hinata, caught in the middle of it all. Oh well!
Ino had her flirty face on though I'm not really sure who she was flirting with…Wait a minute! Everyone's getting up! I look at the clock. Wow. When I drift off I really drift off.
"Oi! Tenten, are you coming or not?" Ino yelled.
"Coming!" I yelled back.
Our next class was Art with Shizune. When we walked into the classroom I noticed that everyone was talking. Usually Ms. Shizune is in class before any of the students are.
As we were taking our seats someone with blond hair in a ponytail walked in. He looked like a male version of Ino. I passed a note to Sakura saying what I thought of him
She giggled and passed it to Kasumi who passed it to Ino who passed it to Hinata. They all started giggling. I smiled at them.
"Hello class, my name is Mr. Deidara, yeah," he said.
"He's a guy?" I heard Kasumi whisper to her brother, Sasuke. He smirked as usual.
"Ms. Shizune isn't feeling well today, so I'll be taking over the class," he said.
"Oi, Deidara, aren't you in our brother's class?" Saske asked, indicating both him and Kasumi.
"And your brother is….?"
"Itachi Uchiha," Kasumi answered.
They nodded together.
"How, uh, interesting. Let's just move on with the project, shall we, yeah."
"What project?" Naruto asked.
"Well, you will pick one person that is your role model and you will draw a portrait of him or her, yeah."
'I'm a Barbie girl! In a Barbie world!'
Deidara eyes widened as he snatched his cell phone out of his pocket and began to fiddle with it. Everyone started to snicker, but who wouldn't!?
"Hello? Oh, hi! Class, I'll be right back, yeah."
He walked out of the classroom, shutting the door behind him. Rookie mistake. All hell broke loose. Paper airplanes and spit balls flew, gossiping began, and swapping spit started.
"So, Sakura who's your new love interest?" I heard someone ask.
Sakura took a deep breath.
I think I just choked on my own saliva.
"I think I might ask him out."
Yup, just choked on my own spit. Why did it have to be Neji? Why couldn't it be…Gaara!? I mean he's pretty good looking!
Oh, gee, I don't know, probably because Kasumi would freak or become all emo like her brother.
I whipped around to face the front of the room. There stood Gaara and Kasumi at Deidara's desk. On the floor was a sculpture of a bird's body and the head lying next to it, on the floor.
"Oooh, you're in trouble," Kasumi said.
