Hi!! This is my new fanfic titled: 'What you did for me'. I really feel as if this ten times better than 'Let me help you'…probably because I actually took my time to write it?
These are the ages for the main characters:
And no… Sakura is not a bad guy in this fic people! By the way this is an AU.
I do not own Naruto.
A year ago, you never could have told her she would be surrounded by family. You never could have told her she would find the love of her life, someone who would make her feel like the most precious thing in the world. Her, who'd never known what love or family truly was before this year.
Finding your family is great, but finding a love is even better.
Hinata looked up and smiled, reaching over for the man's hand.
"What is it Sasuke?" she said softly, squeezing his hand.
He softly smiled, before leaning over to capture her lips.
She felt herself smile. 'What did I do to deserve this?'
"Hinata! Hinata! Hurry up!"
Hinata sighed as she hurriedly tried to fix her drinks; she had been working at this club for the past six months, since she turned eighteen.
She was given the job mainly because of her best friend, Naruto, His grandfather owned the club. It also helped that her roommate, Sakura, worked there too. It was a pretty fun job. It paid well but didn't have the best hours. Which was why this was her last day.
She was starting college in a couple of weeks, and she would need a job with more flexible hours. Luckily for her Naruto said he would help.
"Hinata! Bring your ass out here!"
"I'm coming!" she yelled as she ran out the door.
Sakura was there waiting for her, "Hinata! What were you doing? It's crazy busy tonight!"
"Sorry," she replied as she hurriedly fixed her hair.
Hinata and Sakura had been friends since Hinata was a first year in high school. When Sakura graduated she moved out of her parent's house to be 'independent' as she put it. (Though her parents still paid for everything.) Hinata never understood why Sakura would want to leave the monster of a house her parents owned. When she told Sakura this Sakura said it was because 'she was tired of her parents riding her goddamn back all the time.' Hinata just shrugged and said it was better than not having parents at all to ride your back all the time. It was probably the only thing they disagreed on. Nevertheless six months ago when Hinata turned eighteen and was kicked out the orphanage, Sakura was waiting with open arms.
Sakura flicked her hair, "Whatever, let's just go," she said, walking away.
"I don't know why you have to leave Hinata?! I can't believe your leaving me with that," she said, pointing to the handsome blond man at the bar.
Hinata chuckled," You know you love Naruto. He made working here so worth the while."
Sakura snorted," Oh yeah! He really made the job worth while! Until I saw him in a corner making out with a guy!"
Hinata opened her mouth to speak when she suddenly felt strong hands wrap around her shoulders.
"And just what is your pretty face blabbering about Sakura?"
Oh shut up Naruto, you gay bird." She murmured.
Naruto just smiled," stop being so mean Sakura."
Hinata just rolled her eyes. Sakura never did get over the fact that while Naruto liked women, he also liked men. Sakura always tells him he can't choose both; it has to be one or the other. Though he says he just loves whoever comes his way – male or female.
Naruto had been a childhood friend of Hinata's since forever. His parent's had died in a fire when he was six. He ended up at the same orphanage as her for two years while they looked for his grandfather. Since then they've been the best of friends.
"Hinata, do you really have to leave? It really will suck without you here," Naruto said.
Hinata smiled, "you guys act as if we don't see each other outside this club! It'll be fine O.K?"
"You're really killing me Hinata!" whined Sakura as she and Hinata got up to leave.
Naruto reached over and grabbed Hinata's coat," Well if that's the case, you can leave all you want Hinata."
"Shut up Naruto!"
Naruto laughed," Sorry Sakura. Oh! Hinata, I think I might have got you a job. But I still need to talk with him over it. O.K?" he said as he helped her with her jacket.
She turned around to give him a hug," Thank you. I owe you one."
He just smiled and kissed her on the cheek," anytime…now go get some sleep." He said as he plucked her forehead.
A strong muscular arm groggily reached out for the lamp next to his bed, sitting up, he glanced at the clock.
'3:00 am…what the hell does he want now?' he thought as he walked down the stairs.
"I'm coming damnit!" he murmured as he made his way across to the living room.
He furiously pulled open the door," What the hell do you want Naruto?!"
Sure enough, there was Naruto, standing at his doorstep at three o'clock in the morning.
"Good morning Sasuke! Are you happy to see me?" He asked, leaning casually against the doorframe with a cheeky smile on his face.
Sasuke glared at him before turning around to go back into his house," Hell no."
"But I brought donuts!" Naruto yelled.
When he didn't hear an answer, he looked at the empty donut box in his hands, before tossing it in the bush, and walking inside the house.
"So, did you think about it?" he asked as he joined Sasuke who took to sitting on the couch.
Sasuke raised an eyebrow, "Think about what?"
"Tch. You don't remember what I told you Sasuke?"
"No," Sasuke said, scratching his head," then again it was four in the morning when you talked to me yesterday." He said glaring.
Naruto blinked," So…your telling me you don't remember what I told you?"
Sasuke looked at him incredulously. Didn't he just tell him that?
"No. I. don't. Remember. Do you care to tell me again?"
"Okay," Naruto said, leaning comfortably against the couch," remember when you told me, you needed another housekeeper?"
Sasuke scratched his head," Kind of…why?"
Naruto sat up, reaching over to tousle Sasuke's hair," Give me a kiss first."
"What?!" He said, as he swapped Naruto's hand from his head.
Naruto chuckled," I'm just joking Sasuke. I know your not ready for a relationship." He said, trying to stifle his laughter.
"Shut up, you dumbass. You know goddamn well I'm not gay." He said, clearing his throat, "Can you just get back to the topic of conversation."
"Uhh…Oh!" Naruto said, snapping his fingers," Housekeeper! I found one for you."
"And who is it? I need a name, age, former occupation…"
Naruto nervously chuckled, already knowing what Sasuke would say," well… her name is Hinata and she's eighteen – "
"Stop." He said tonelessly, raising his hand up in a stop position," it's a girl, and she's close to our age? Not gonna happen."
Naruto sighed. He knew this was going to be hard. When Naruto told Sasuke he would help him find a housekeeper, Sasuke specifically said no girls, especially those between the ages of 18 and 22. But Naruto really wanted to get Hinata the job. He was fully prepared to argue him down on it.
"Sasuke, can you please let me finish," he waited for Sasuke to nod before continuing," Hinata is one of my best friends. She would never try to rape you like that other housekeeper did! She doesn't even know you! Besides you are the least of her worries. She's starting college soon, and she really needs the money."
When Sasuke remained quiet, Naruto grew frustrated.
"Damnit Sasuke! Just give her a chance! Please! I'll do whatever you want!"
Sasuke's eyebrows scrunched up in thought," You must really care about this girl."
Sasuke was rather surprised. Naruto always helped people but he rarely said he'd do anything just to help someone.
"I really do," he said softly," she's the only person who really understands me, besides you…and I promised her I would get her a job. So please?"
Sasuke sighed, hoping he wasn't going to regret this," Fine I'll talk to her tomorrow. And if I like her… she starts the next day."
"Thanks. You never let me down," Naruto said cheerfully as his hand landed on Sasuke's shoulder.
Sasuke smirked, before rolling his eyes," don't I know it."
"Ugh. I'm beat. Goodnight Hinata." Sakura said as she made her way to the room.
"Goodnight." She said as she too made her way up to her room.
When she got to her room, she walked straight to her bed, and plopped down on it.
Staring up at the ceiling, she silently waited for what she knew was coming.
As the tears began to fall, she began silently asking," Will I ever get to see you again? Why did you abandon me? Didn't you love me? Are you all looking for me? Do you even care?!" She screamed bitterly.
This was the only time she allowed herself to cry like this: with the lights off, and no one around; only her alone in her own sorrow.
She asked these questions almost every night, to ghosts she knows will never answer her.
"Coming!" Sakura yelled as she ran to the door. Opening the door, she wasn't surprised to see Naruto there.
Naruto smiled, "Hello beautiful."
"Hello Fruity," she said, sighing as she ran a finger through her hair," I'm guessing your here for Hinata?"
"Yes. Is she up yet?"
"Actually no…She must have been really tired last night, she's usually up before me."
"Oh," he murmured," well can I go check on her?"
"Sure," she said as she grabbed her keys," I'm actually about to leave so make sure you guys lock the door, okay?"
He waited until Sakura closed the door before walking towards Hinata's room.
Sakura probably didn't know why Hinata wasn't up yet, but he did. If he was right Hinata most likely exhausted herself crying last night. She had been crying for what seemed like non stop for the past few weeks. If he guessed right it was about her family. She said she was over it but he knew better.
His thoughts were confirmed when he walked over to her bed and saw her eyes glued shut by dried tears.
'Hinata…you're still hurting aren't you?'
Sighing, he softly sat on her bed and lightly shaked her shoulder,"Hina-baby, wake-up. It's me, Naruto."
He silently watched as she stirred awake, rubbing the dried tears away from her eyes," Naruto, what are you doing here?" she said stifling a yawn.
Naruto smiled as he lightly rubbed her arm," I came to see If you wanted a cup of coffee."
She tiredly smiled," That'd be great." She said softly.
Naruto cheekily smiled at her," Good. Now get your ass in that shower and wash up!" he said, hitting her bottom as she moved to the bathroom.
"Naruto!" she said laughing.
"So, I'm guessing you had something to tell me?" she asked as they sipped their drinks.
"Yes. I do. Good news." He said as he took a sip from his coffee.
"Really? So you found me a job?" she asked, barely able to contain her excitement.
"Yes. I did actually."
Hinata reached over to grab his hand," Thank you so much Naruto.Really."
Naruto chuckled," Don't thank me yet, I haven't even told you what it is." He said squeezing her hand.
Hinata blushed," Sorry."
"It's okay." He said smiling," Anyway. You don't mind cleaning right?"
"Good. Cuz that's your job."
Hinata nodded," Cleaning? That's it? For who exactly?"
"I'm glad you asked. Well he's a really good friend of mine. His name is Sasuke." Naruto paused to make sure Hinata was listening," He lives alone, so there won't be much hassle. Plus he pays great. He says he wants to talk to you first, to make sure your right for the job."
"It seems like the perfect job."
"I know." He murmured, taking another sip of his coffee.
"So when do I start if I get the job?"
"Hopefully the day after you talk to him."Naruto smiled," Hinata," he said as he slowly put his coffee on the table," I just want to know if you're okay?"
"Yes. I-I'm fine. Why do you ask?"
Naruto sighed, folding his arms on the table," Hinata, I can tell when somethings bothering you. I know you've been crying yourself to sleep for the last couple of weeks."
Hinata's eyes widened," H-how – "
Naruto raised an elegant eyebrow," Why the surprised face?" he grabbed her hand," What's wrong?"
Hinata let out a shaky breath," I know I said that I would forget about them, but you have to understand, I hoped and prayed for thirteen years, wishing they would come for me, and they never came."
"So you're bitter."
"No I just want to know if they really loved me. I'm beginning to think that they didn't at all."
"Hey!" he said as he lightly hit the table," Chin up. Don't ever say that! You know you're family loved you. So stop it."
Naruto reached over the table to pinch her cheek, "Now give me a smile."
Hinata slowly gave him a shaky half-smile.
Naruto sighed," Good enough." He smiled at as he lovingly patted her face," Don't worry Hina-baby, things will get better."
Well that's my first chapter. I would really like to hear if you liked the chapter, so please review.
