Chapter 10

Hey everyone, I'm finally back again. Sorry for the wait. I'm in Switzerland on exchange, so things have been pretty hectic…and all of my other personal problems have been very persistent as of late. Oh well.
Anyways, here's the next chapter, enjoy.

Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto, and I am making no profit off of this fanfiction.

The sun's rays shone gently into Temari's room through the gap in the curtains, which had been haphazardly drawn shut the night before. Tenten stirred the sun's rays unwelcome in her current state of blissful sleepiness. She was so warm, her body was curled up next the one next to her, her arms draped casually over Temari's form.

Then her eyes snapped open, she searched her mind rapidly, trying in vain to remember all of the things that had occurred the night before. Disconnected images flashed before her mind's eye, stumbling up to Temari's room, discovering that Katsu was really Temari, the feeling of Temari's lips against her own…

She shut her brown eyes again, wishing it would all go away. She opened them again, only to find nothing had changed. Temari's words rang through her head. "I like you…I like you a lot you know…" she could remember her response, "I like you too you know…" everything had made sense then, when they were drunk, but now she did not know what to do. It all seemed like a bad dream, but at the same time, it had been amazing while it had been happening.

She looked over at Temari, whose eyes were open and watching her. "Hey…" she said.

Tenten was sure she was blushing, but she couldn't look away from Temari's eyes…the deep pools of green just pulled her in, and she wondered what was happening behind those guarded eyes.

Temari's Point of View (Tenten might not be able to know…but the readers get the privilege :P)

She's so cute, with her eye brows drawn together slightly while she thinks. Sometimes they twitch as she thinks, and draw closer together, I'm not sure if she even realizes it.

It's strange, I feel like I'm in a dream. I can't believe last night actually happened…but who knows what's going to happen now…I probably shouldn't have told her I like her…this whole drinking idea was probably a bad one, actually I'm sure it was a bad idea…but really it's too late now, and I don't care.

I'm really happy now…with her in my arms, it feels so right. She feels so right…it was amazing last night, she is so soft and perfect…and I really think I'm in love with her, even if it might be too early to say that.

Normal Point of View

"Um…I really need to pee…" said Tenten quietly.

Temari lifted her arm off of Tenten to let her up. Temari's eyes lazily followed Tenten's form as she exited the room before getting up and putting a sweat shirt and pajama pants over her t-shirt and boxer shorts.

Temari stretched and looked in her mirror. Her eyes widened. On her neck, in a very noticeable place was a very large hickey. She touched the spot gently and smiled slightly. She knew she would have to put a scarf on, or else do a lot of explaining.

Tenten stood in the bathroom, braced against the sink. Her head was pounding, and her limbs felt wobbly and she had multiple marks on her neck and chest. She stared into the mirror, searching for herself behind her eyes. She sighed, knowing she would not be able to, and she turned away, to return to Temari's room.

She opened the door timidly to find Temari lying with her hands behind her head on the bottom bunk. She walked over and sat down hesitantly on the edge of the bed. "So…" she started, not really knowing where to begin.

"Hm…well…how much do you remember? I mean…do remember everything I said?" asked Temari.


The two had finished their activities, and were lying wrapped in each others arms, their faces so close their noses were touching, and Temari was gently brushing her lips against those of Tenten.

They shared a kiss, far sweeter and gentler than those that had been given previously. Temari broke away after the brief kiss, and she intoned quietly, her voice low and still somewhat sultry. "You know, I really do love you. I dream about you all the time, both when I'm sleeping and when I'm not."

"Hm…" moaned Tenten softly, her eyes shut. "It's strange…I mean…woah…I just remembered a dream I had…only a few nights ago. It was you…well, Katsu actually. We were kissing, and then…when he pulled away, I looked at him, and it was you…I don't know why I didn't remember that before…"

"I see…" mumbled Temari into Tenten's neck. "Well, I love you, so much. I want you to know that."

"I know." said Tenten.


End Flashback

"Yeah, I think I remember most of it..." Tenten trailed off, blushing.

"Um…is it true what you said about the dream you had?" Temari asked.

"Yes, I had that dream; it wasn't something I just made up. That was the first time I've ever dreamed about a girl…though I've never really had that many dreams about guys either." Tenten confessed.

"K…" said Temari. "Well, I'm hungry, let's go eat."

Breakfast was incredibly awkward. Neither Tenten nor Temari said much, and no one else was up. They walked together back to their dorm in silence, and when they got there, Tenten said "I'm going to go take a shower."

She gathered clean clothes as quickly as possible, and got into the shower. She let the hot water run over her body, soothing her tense muscles and jangling nerves. She sighed, shampooing her hair, she tried to organize her thoughts but found it impossible. She didn't even know what she felt, or how she felt.

She now knew what Temari felt, but she didn't know how to respond. It was so new to her, the feelings she was experiencing, and she felt scared, and she didn't know what to do. Temari, or Katsu, was her best friend…and she valued that. But she knew the new development could change that relationship drastically, and she didn't know if she was ready for that change, or if she even wanted it.

She snapped out of her daze and shook her head. She washed her body and got out of the shower, dried herself and got dressed in some shorts and a t-shirt. She stepped out of the bathroom and said to Temari "I'm going to go shoot some hoops, ok?"

"Yeah, go ahead. I'm going to stay here and take a shower. I'll see you later…" Though Tenten couldn't see it, as she walked out, Temari's eyes followed her, their expression holding many deep emotions.

Tenten walked out of the room and shut the door and breathed out, and started walking towards the stairs.

A door opened behind her and a surprised voice called out. "Ryuu?"

Tenten turned, and was also surprised, Lee, the boy who roomed with Neji Hyuuga, was running down the hall, clad in a green spandex shirt and green basketball shorts. "Hi Lee, what are you doing?" she asked.

"Oh, I am just going for a run, would you like to accompany me?" he asked.

"Hm..I was actually going to shoot hoops in the park…" she began.

"That is just as well then; we can jog to the park, and then shoot hoops. Is that acceptable?" He asked.

"Yeah, sure I guess."

"Great!" he said, and then he ran ahead to the stairs, saying something about the power of youth, that Tenten decided not to listen to, her thoughts were elsewhere…

Well, that's that chapter, sorry that it's shorter than usual. I'll try to make the next one longer.

I'm just curious…what do you guys think will happen to Temari and Tenten? I mean I know, hahaha, but that would be cause I'm the writer.

Well, leave a review please, and thanks for reading.
