Hey Fanfiction-ers, Phantom-of-Fantasy here, bringing you the next chapter of my newest story! I got this idea after watching the awesome movie John Tucker Must Die for like the hundreth time in my life. Just wanted to put this out there to get some opinions: if I should continue it while working on my other two fanfictions, or give it up. Let me know what you think!
Obviously I don't own Shika and co. They're Kishimoto's. And the movie John Tuker Must Die was directed by Betty Thomas; and some of funniest parts of the girl's conversation are paraphrased from what I remember from the movie!!!
Hinata walked into the library quietly, hugging her books tightly to her chest, head down. She still couldn't believe her outburst in gym class earlier that day. Her pale violet gaze was so focused on her shoes that she didn't notice the person in front of her. Hinata crashed right into them, her books flying everywhere, paper scattered, and she fell backwards onto her butt.
"Oh geez! I'm so sorry," the boy said, reaching to give her a hand.
Hinata blushed deeply. "I – It wasn't you! That was my f – fault, I'm so stupid. S – Sorry," she stammered, still keeping her gaze on the ground.
"Here, let me help you," he said kindly. She reached up and gripped his hand, finally looking up to meet his eyes. Warm light brown eyes filed with concern made her gasp.
"Ch – Choji…" she murmured.
"You know me?" he asked, pulling her to her feet easily before bending down to gather her things, as well as his. "Oh wow, that was dumb. I know who you are too…a Hyuga? Hinata, right?"
She blushed even more as she nodded. "I'm really sorry about bashing into you. I wasn't paying attention…"
"No problem," the skin around his eyes crinkled as he grinned at her. "I've got a lot of padding," he patted his stomach.
Hinata's jaw dropped. "You're not fat," she protested. He was bigger than most other students, but in her opinion, he carried it well, looking like a cuddly teddy bear, not a giant slob.
His smile grew wider. "Thanks. You are in the minority with that thought though."
"Um, you wouldn't happen to be here for detention too?" she dared to hope. A friendly face would be nice to have around when the other girls arrived.
"Nope…you got here early. And I never pegged you as the type to act out," he laughed a bit.
She smiled weakly. "It was an accident…"
"That's what they all say," he teased her. "it's OK, I like bad girls." Her face flushed pink again, but her pale eyes narrowed as she spied someone through the door in the hallway.
"ugh," she muttered, turning away in disgust as Shikamaru Nara leaned over another girl in a cheerleading uniform. Karin…his taste in girls was really starting to disturb Hinata. Choji spun around and saw who she was staring at.
"Hmm…not exactly the reaction Shikamaru usually gets from girls. It's usually more of a 'oh my gawd, he's soooo hawt'," he imitated in a high pitched voice. She giggled.
"I'm not really considered normal at this school anyway…" Hinata replied softly.
"That's a good thing. And I'll be sure to let him know you won't fall for any of his tricks," the brunette boy smirked. Her eyes widened as she remembered:
"Oh wow, I'm sorry I'm such a jerk! He's your best friend and I'm just –"
"Telling the truth about him? Even I don't approve of his player ways, but what can I do? I probably don't even know the half of it…" he said, as the other three girls trickled in with the detention teacher, Mr. Ibiki Morino.
"Akimichi, out now," he barked, pointing at the door.
"See ya, he murmured to Hinata before heading out. Ino looked him up and down as he passed by and smirked. His head ducked down low and he sped out of the room as the girls took their seats at different tables.
"Alright, stay seated and stay SILENT. I'll be right back and I'll KNOW if you even sneezed while I was gone," Mr. Morino threatened as he hurried out the door. Immediately the three outgoing girls turned to talk to each other.
"So I talked to Shika after class," Ino began, twirling a strand of her light blonde hair around her finger. "He said you were both just jealous because we share something special and something that we didn't have to label or explain to anyone else because–"
Temari cut it, "–Because it's our amazing unspoken bond and I love how secure you are in what we have and –"
"–And it hurts me to hear you question it," Sakura blurted out, "because you should know by now –"
"–That you're the ONLY ONE FOR ME?!" The three girls completed the sentence simultaneously and glared at each other. Hinata sighed softly under her breath.
"He fed us ALL the same line?!" Sakura cried angrily.
Ino folded her arms across her chest. "I cannot BELIEVE this…"
"So he's merely using us as playthings?" Temari frowned, the sexual emphasis on her words obvious.
"You hooked up with him?!" Ino screeched.
Temari looked smug for a moment. "Well, we share 'something special'"
"What, that you've BOTH been in your pants?" Sakura said snidely. The darker blonde opened her mouth to retort but was beaten by Ino.
"You two might be his toys, but Shikamaru and I were meant to be. I am the head cheerleader after all, and he is the captain of the basketball team…" she said proudly.
"You don't honestly believe that he takes either of you seriously? How could he, when you don't have the mental capacity to keep up with him," Sakura scoffed. The three girls continued to argue loudly.
"Shut up…" Hinata murmured, writing in her notebook. The trio was immediately silent and she looked up. "Oh…did I say that out loud?" she whispered, mortified. They glared at her. "I'm so sorry, just ignore me," she said apologetically, shaking her head at them sadly before turning back to her work.
"What?" Ino asked impatiently.
Hinata glanced up at the light blonde girl. "It's none of my business…"
"No, really. What did you want to say to us?" Ino persisted, morbidly curious.
"Well…it's just…does he give you pet names, like 'angel' or 'babe'?" The three girls looked at each other and nodded. Hinata rolled her eyes. "It's not a term of endearment. It's so he doesn't accidentally mix up your names." The three girls seemed shocked. Hinata continued," And this 'amazing unspoken bond' you two seem to share? That's what it's all about, but never a real relationship that you can share with the world?" Temari scowled, Sakura bit her lip, and Ino fiddled with her hair, all unwilling to admit to falling for it. "Oh, and also the secret arrangement to see him was originally YOUR idea, so you're the ones feeling guilty that he's cheating…" Hinata finished.
"You've got to be kidding me…You're dating him too?!" Temari exclaimed.
The dark-haired girl shook her head. "No I just used to know a guy like him once upon a time…All I know is that if someone ever treated me like that –"
"You'd break up with him, blah blah, how pathetic," Ino said, rolling her eyes.
"He'd have three new willing slaves in a heartbeat!" Sakura whined.
Hinata's pale violet eyes narrowed. "I never said 'break up'…I'd get revenge," she said simply. The other three girls' gazes zeroed in on her in interest, as their expressions cracked into identical evil smiles.
"What was you name again?" Temari asked as Mr. Morino entered the room.
"My name is –"
"No talking, " he roared.
She tried again. "I'm –"
"Silence, Ms. Hyuga!"
The trio of girls all gazed at her as she shrugged apologetically. The wheels in each girls' mind churned as they contemplated the quiet girl's idea…
Well...What do you think? Was this chapter worth the wait? Did it live up to expectations?
Don't like = Don't read = Don't complain :)
Should I continue? Or is it a lost cause? Post your opinion!
