Chapter 5: A Meeting With Otou-san
"Bye Hina-chan! See you tomorrow!" Naruto yelled, waving. Hinata giggled, and waved back shyly. Gaara came up to her, and handed her a piece of paper.
"This is….um…just take it…." Gaara said, awkwardly. Hinata looked at it, and saw a picture of her on the swings, and Gaara pushing her. Beneath the picture, Gaara had written his phone number, and drawn a picture of a house next to it. She smiled, and hugged him tightly.
"Hinata-sama, its time to go. Your father would like to speak with you," a cold voice said from behind. Gaara noticed how Hinata flinched, before she released him.
"Hai, Neji-nii-san," she said quietly, starting for the door. Neji followed her, giving a hateful glance at Gaara, who flinched slightly, but for the most part, remained emotionless.
--(Time Skip: +35 Minutes)--
Hinata sat on the couch, opposite to her father, who looked down at her, with a look of distain. Neji stood behind him, making sure that no servants were anywhere nearby. Haishi sighed, and rubbed his temples before speaking to his youngest daughter.
"Hinata, it is time to begin thinking of your future in this world. If you are to become the heir to the Hyuuga Clan, you will need to have strong connections in the other clans,"
Hinata stared at her father blankly, not understanding a word he was talking about. Her future in the world? Strong connections? She did not notice Neji's look of shock.
Haishi noticed her expression, and sighed again.
"By strong connections, I mean that you will need to have the strongest connection, the greatest bond in this world. That is to say…well…The Uchiha clan is the strongest clan, other the Hyuuga's, and it would be best if…that is to say…" Haishi sighed again, and put his head in his hands. He took a few deep breaths, and returned his gaze on his daughter.
"Hinata, you are going to marry the heir of the Uchiha clan,"
"Wh-what?!" Hinata yelped, turning pale.
"Haishi-sama, you can't be serious!" Neji said, his eyes wide.
"I am perfectly serious, and this is non-negotiable!" Haishi said. Suddenly the doorbell rang, and Haishi stood.
"That should be him now, Hinata, you are to act polite, or so help me I'll—"
The bell rang again, more impatiently this time. Haishi walked out of the room and Hinata followed, trying to keep an emotionless facial expression, though on the inside, she wanted nothing more than to ball up in a corner and cry.
The butler opened the door, and Hinata gasped.
"Itachi-kun!" she cried, running up, and hugging him tightly around the waist. Itachi smiled, and hugged Hinata back.
"And how is my fiancée doing today?"
