Hello all! In this re-write I'm hoping to get more details, drama, and over-all more action! Anyways unlike the original draft of this story, there will be more chapters, and a sneak peak of the sequel to this! Every now and then there may be mini-chapters consisting of another paring that is in this story.
Anyways here we go.
Hinata watched as her team mate was carried away by the medic squad, Kiba and Naruto had fought a good battle, and she was glad that Naruto had won…even though she knew she should have been routing for her own team mate. Suddenly the proctors' voice sounded through the tower,
"The next match *cough* will appear on the screen *cough, cough*." Hayate said holding his hand in front of his mouth as he coughed. The screen came to life, and names began to form on it, slowly the top name came to a stand still.
Time seemed to be frozen, Hinata stared at the names on the board, maybe one would change! Maybe she wouldn't have to face Neji. The air was thick as a few Leaf Jounin watched on in pity, Hinata having to face Neji was like a death Match. A rabbit VS a lion…but it was to late, nothing could be done.
Hinata walked up to the middle of the stage, she could feel fear rising in her every movement, she knew that Neji was not a push over.
Neji looked at his 'sister' and gave a cold smirk,
"Never thought I'd see you here." He said.
(I know there is a lot of dialogue in this chapter so I'm skipping to the fight scene.)
Hinata and Neji where exchanging blows, though it seemed that Neji was winning, he had blow out many of Hinata's chakra points, and the two of them flung them their arms at each other, the entire building went silent as the sound of blood hit the ground.
The heiress had fallen her body limp, and Neji was standing a few feet away, pulling his arm back against his body, a smirk on his lips once again.
"The battle is over-" Hayate had started but a rather obnoxious shout came from the side lines,
"Don't call her out just yet!" Naruto yelled,
"Naruto you baka!" Sakura said, "Can't you see the pour girl has had enough!" she said, but the crowd had gone silent once again, as Hinata's body began to move once again, she was still breathing weakly but had moved herself into a standing position, she was in a weak stance, one arm hung at her side, whilst the other was wrapped around her chest, blood was still falling from her mouth, Neji seemed to get angered at this, angered that he couldn't bring his cousin down with that blow.
The cold hearted sand-nin seemed slightly moved by this stunning act of courage…or was it foolery?
"Neji…you don't know destiny…" Hinata said (Again I know there is more dialogue but I don't feel like writing it all down, and I know this isn't want Hinata says that sets him off but none the less.)
Neji suddenly shot forward, at the surprise of Hayate and the Jounin.
It all seemed that it was going to end badly, the Jounin had moved a second to late, Neji was already to close for anyone to stop him…
Hinata closed her eyes and waited for the painful blast to take her life, but strangely death's cold grasp never did touch her heart, she opened an eye, and found herself surrounded by a wall of sand, Neji's hand was caught inside said wall, the sand was crushing it.
All eyes turned to face…Gaara! The 'invisible' Ninja was standing outside of the wall, his hand outstretched and was somewhat forming a fist, the crowd looked stunned. Neji was trying to pull his hand out, but never did accomplish said goal, until Gaara eventually let go and the sand fell to the ground. Around this time the Jounin finally did show up.
Neji's sensei was talking about, that he promised not to let the match get the best of him, while Hinata's sensei was glaring at Neji before she walked over to Hinata whom amazingly was still standing.
Naruto sent a curious yet weary glance at the Sand-nin. Hinata on the other hand was looking at her savior smiling, before coughing up blood and fell to the ground, but instead of feeling the stone ground, a soft sort of strange feeling came over her, she felt sand wrap around her and gently lower her to the ground, her eyes began to close but she was able to look at the person that had saved her life one last time, before blacking out.
Gaara walked back up to the balcony's and stood between his siblings and Sensei silently as if it had never happened.
