Love Me, Hate Me, Want Me
Chapter One – You have a BOYFRIEND?!
"I love you, Naruto."
"And I you."
Sasuke mimed gagging as he sat at his desk in his room. His best friend was over and they were planning to test out Sasuke new Wii game, Super Smash Brother's brawl. However, instead, Naruto had chosen instead to spend the past 20 minutes using Sasuke's home phone to call up his girlfriend, Hinata Hyuuga.
Now Sasuke was forced to sit there while Naruto babbled on like a love-sick idiot, which he very well was. However, unexpectedly, Naruto had thrust the phone into Sasuke's face.
The Uchiha glared at the blonde, both shocked and alarmed at what the blonde was doing.
Naruto pushed in the receiver towards Sasuke's mouth, signaling to him that he was supposed to talk but he kept his mother shut. The blonde groaned in defeat.
"Hinata's dad," Naruto whispered to Sasuke. "He wants to talk to her boyfriend. Please, Sasuke. Just this once, do me a favor?" Sasuke rolled his eyes in defeat and took the phone.
"I love you."
Hiashi halted in his steps. He was walking downstairs to the kitchen because he felt in the mood for a midnight snack (although it was 9'o-clock at night, but that was irrelevant). He had passed his eldest daughter's door when he had heard her say the three words that he had never thought she was say before her wedding day or to anyone besides the members of her family.
The Hyuuga crept towards his daughter's door, happy in the fact that his daughter had neglected to shut her door. He pushed the door open just enough for him to look inside and not enough for Hinata to see him and notice that he was there.
His darling daughter was sitting at the foot of her clean and tidy bed talking on her new cell phone. Blast! Hiashi thought. I knew that getting her that cell phone was not a good idea. She would just spend time talking to some imaginary boy, rather I hope it's a boy, and saying such words.
Hiashi thought for a moment. Maybe he should talk to this boy that his daughter was currently conversing with. Hopefully, it would not be that blonde idiot that his daughter had affection for in her elementary years. Well, she was in high school now and Hiashi hoped that she no longer liked the idiot types.
That Uzumaki idiot was just too…. Common. To plain. To normal. Not smart enough. Not enough status.
He had always thought that Hinata would have a taste in boys with greater intellect and a much greater background. Like the Uchiha Brothers, per say. Granted Hiashi didn't like the Uchiha Brothers either because they had, first, come from the Uchiha family, which were the eternal rivals of the Hyuuga, or they had a reputation of breaking many a girls' hearts.He didn't want Hinata messing with any playboys. (Well, Hiashi had heard them to be such; whether or not the rumor was true is unknown. But that is besides the point. They are bad boys.)
"Otou-san." A voice said, startling the man currently kneeling by his eldest daughter's door. He turned around to see Hanabi, his younger ten-year-old daughter, Hanabi, standing there at the top of the stairs with a glass of milk.
"Otou-san, why are you spying on nee-chan?" Hanabi asked casually, taking a sip of milk.
"Hanabi-chan," The Hyuuga said casually as if he was stating a fact, "I'm not spying on Hinata-chan." He slowly stood up and dusted himself off before turning to face his youngest daughter.
"Well," Hanabi regarded her father with a "yeah-really" look in her eyes, "Neji-nii-san doesn't deny that he's spying on nee-chan when he does it." The younger girl turned to walk back to her room.
"Well, Hanabi-chan, I'm not Neji-" Hiashi paused when he suddenly realized what Hanabi had just said. There was a pushed open the door to his daughter's room; startling Hinata and she stood up, with her lavender cell phone clutched closely to her chest.
"Hello, otou-san." She smiled sheepishly.
"Who are you talking to, Hina-chan?" Hinata's face reddened as she tried to think of something to say. She could not let her father find out that she have a boyfriend, never mind the fact that her boyfriend was Naruto, whom Hiashi hated…. A lot.
"Well… otou-san…" Hinata trailed off, trying very hard not to stutter, a bad habit that she had lost a very long time ago. "It's just…. Well…"
"Hinata-chan," Hiashi was suspicious. "are you keeping something from me?"
"No! Otou-san! I would never do something like that to you!"
"Then who are you talking to, then?"
"It's just…" Hinata gripped the cell phone tightly in her hand.
"Yes?" Hiashi looked at his daughter.
"It's just…" Hinata's eyes shifted from side-to-side. The atmosphere was tense… or maybe it was just her. What would happen if her father found out? What should she say?
"Yes?" Something is definitely wrong….
"My b-boyfriend… otou-san." There was a long silence and Hinata was very worried.
Hiashi tried to smile. He tried very hard. But it was impossible. Impossible! Could it really be that his darling daughter had gotten together with that idiot of a boy?
"I would like to talk to him, Hinata-chan." It took a great amount of his will to prevent himself from grabbing the phone away from his daughter and grounding her, then and there on the spot.
Hinata shakily brought the cell phone back up to her ear. "My father would… um… like to talk to you." There was a long pause before she handed the phone to her father. Please, Naruto-kun, she thought to herself. Please think of something.
"Hello?" Hiashi had brought the phone up to his ear, expecting to hear the unusual high-pitched voice of Naruto Uzumaki, but he was shocked at what he had heard.
"Hello, Hyuuga-san." The deep baritone of Sasuke Uchiha.
"Ahh, Uchiha-san." Hinata visibly tensed in her seat on the bed but her father did not notice. Naruto! This could end up in disaster! Otou-san doesn't like Sasuke either! "So, You are the one that is dating my daughter?"
"Yes," The Uchiha replied. "did she not tell you of it?"
"No." Hiashi paused for a moment. The Uchiha was better than the Uzumaki baka any day. "Why is it that your relationship with my daughter had been kept a secret for such a long time?"
"We were waiting for the opportune moment to tell you, Hyuuga-san."
"Well, if you put it that way… Maybe Hinata could take you to meet me at a restaurant tomorrow so that we could get to know each other better. How's that?"
"That would be fine, Hyuuga-san."
"Well then. I'll see you tomorrow." A smile spread across Hiashi's face.
"I'll be looking forward to it." He hung up and handed the phone back to Hinata.
"We're having lunch tomorrow at Kresly's." Hiashi walked out of his daughter's room without another word. Hinata was shocked. Kresly's was a restaurant that her father only went to with his best clients.
This was not going to be good…
"You said WHAT?!" Naruto was outraged at his best friend. The Nerve of him!
"There was nothing I could do." Sasuke set the phone down. "I didn't have any other choice."
"So you're going to have lunch with my girlfriend and her dad and pretending to be Hinata's boyfriend?" the blonde looked as if he was going to explode.
"That seems to be the plan. Now let's go play some Wii."
