Prologue

Tomorrow was the day. Tomorrow my friends – Tenten, Temari, and Ino – and I would be transferred to a new school. We lived with Kurenai, our adopted mother, though none of us are related by blood.

Tenten was the oldest of the four of us, at seventeen. Her parents died in a fire when she was four, but she couldn't remember anything about them. Despite her sad past, she was one of the cheeriest girls you could ever meet, besides Ino.

Temari just turned seventeen. She ran away, for reasons no one will know, at the age of eight. She's secretive about her reasons for leaving, and we learned not to question them. She's got the kick ass attitude in our family, the rebel. She was rubbing off on me, though. She is the most mature as well, with a motherly nature that kicks in whenever Kurenai's not around.

Ino, sixteen, and the beauty queen of our family, is the cheeriest prep you could find. With blonde hair and sparkling blue eyes, she's the perfect image of a cheerleader. Honestly, no one knows how she became an orphan, not even she. She just happened to show up at the Rain Village Orphanage when she was three.

And then there's me, the youngest, and maybe the quietest. I had unusual eyes – ones that scarred me, reminding me of the family that dumped me. My midnight blue/black hair reached my mid back, spiky bangs surrounding my face. They accentuated the pale lavender orbs I hated. I was a foster child. Yes, my father dumped me at the orphanage when I was seven, in favor of my younger sister, Hanabi, to be the heiress of his ever so successful business.

"Hinata! Hello? You there?" Ino waved her hand in my face, snapping me out of my reverie.

"What?" I asked.

"Did you pack?" She asked.

I shook my head.

"No? We leave tomorrow, Hina-chan!" Tenten exclaimed, "How are you going to live in a boarding school with no clothes?"

"Relax," Temari cut in, "I already packed her clothes."

"Thanks," I said sheepishly.

"No problem," She replied, already getting into bed, "But shut up. I wanna get some sleep!"

"Jeez," Tenten scoffed, "Didn't we say we were having a sleepover?"

"We live in the same house, smart ass!" Temari countered, "We technically sleepover everyday."

"She meant that we were going to stay up all night, Tema," Ino rolled her eyes, "Come on, it's going to be like a celebration that it's our last night with Kurenai."

"We're only an hour away. And besides, she's sleeping right now, isn't she?"

"Temari, just give up," I sighed, "They're never going to leave you alone if you don't."

"Fine," she growled, "But we sleep when it's three in the morning, got it?"

Everyone nodded.

"So…what are we supposed to do now?" I asked.

"Um…talk, I guess…" Tenten replied.

"Wait," Temari said, "You're keeping me up all night for talk? We do that everyday, and we're going to do that every day when we get to school!"

"Calm down, Tema," Ino grinned, "Let's vow to something."

"Like what?" I asked, interested.

"Well, that we'll always be friends, especially when we go to our all girls' boarding school."

"Aw, Ino!" Tenten hugged her, "You're so sweet! We're always going to be friends!"

"I know, I know, but hey, you never know." She stated.

"Alright, if we vow to this," Temari stated, "Then can we go to sleep?"

Ino and Tenten nodded.

"Then let's get it over with," Temari sighed, "Though I don't see how we're ever going to not be friends, considering we're practically sisters."

Ino stood up, thinking of the vow. "I, Ino Yuhi, vow to never let anything get in the way of my friendship with Tenten, Temari, and Hinata Yuhi."

"I, Tenten Yuhi, vow to never let anything get in the way of my friendship with Ino, Hinata, and Temari Yuhi. Your turn, Hina!"

I stood up, trying to remember that ridiculous, yet sweet, vow. "I, Hinata Yuhi, vow to never let anything get in the way of my friendship with Tenten, Temari, and Ino Yuhi."

Temari tiredly stood up, looking bored. "Okay, I, Temari, vow not to let anything get in the way of my friendship with Tenten, Hinata, and Ino Yuhi. Can we go to sleep now?"

Tenten stood up, walking over to her bed. She and Temari shared a room. Ino and I got into our sleeping bags – we shared a different room – and settled in for the night.

"Night, guys!" I said sleepily.

"Night!"

Tomorrow would be our first day at Konoha Leaf Prep. I couldn't wait.

Author's Note: Okay, sorry for the Shortness, and here are the pairings: SasuHina, NaruIno, ShikaTema, and NejiTen. The pairings are definite, except for NaruIno, because I still don't know if it should be NaruIno or KibaIno. Please tell me which you want (though right now, I'm leaning towards NaruIno). Also, I will be updating kind of weekly. It actually depends how fast I type, and how fast I update my other fanfic. Anyways, Please Review!
