The Unexpected Happened



Inner Self


Chapter 27:

Okay, I'm totally in love with Neji. Totally. I can't believe how stupid I am for doing this but I did. I completely fell for him. My heart swells into knots if I haven't spoken to him in at least four hours. I can't stand if any other girl looks at him and I feel the need to make sure that he gets everything he needs because he will make sure that he talks to me everyday and will ignore other girls that will flirt with him and attends to my every needs but even after all of this...I'm nervous to go to the dance with him.

It's April now and I'm pacing around in my room. Neji glanced up at me.

"What's wrong?" He asked, reading a book now.

"It's the dance," I complained.

He raised an eyebrow. "And?" he mused.

"And I don't like dances," I grumbled. "Remember how the last one turned out?"

"Are you talking about the drunks or you hurting yourself?" Neji inquired.

"Both," I remarked, stubbornly.

"I won't let anyone get you," he said standing up.

I wrapped my arms around his waist. "Yeah, I know that but still..."

"You're afraid?" He questioned, lifting my chin.

I turned away. "I'm not afraid of getting hurt?"

"What are you afraid of then?" Neji asked, trying to hide his impatience. Typical of an ice cube.

"I'm not afraid," I replied.

"Upset?" Neji suggested.


"Then what's bothering you?" He demanded, giving up at guessing.

"I'm nervous," I retorted, rubbing the back of my neck in embarrassment.

Neji chuckled. "You had me worried,"


"I thought you weren't going," he explained with a laugh. "I remember last time,"

"What about it?" I interrogated defensively.

He brushed the bangs from my face.

"How you were scared in the dress," he told me, laughing.

"Don't remind me of that nervousness," I mumbled.

"Then why are you nervous?" the lavender eyed boy asked.

"If I'm still bothered by the time of the dance, I'll tell you," I negotiated.

"Fine by me,"

"Time to meet the girls," I suddenly changed the subject.

Neji let go of me. "Alright,"

"Bye!" I called, slipping the room key in my pocket as I left the room.

"Ooo! But that looks so cute, Tennie-chan!" Ino squealed.

"Just like your little pigginess," I hissed back.

"Hey Ino?" Sakura asked. "Can you button this?"

"Sure thing," Ino agreed, stalking over to do so.

Sakura's dress was her favorite color, hot pink. It was strap less and the top wrapped around her chest and waist tightly but poofed out below, in that itchy material.

Hinata's dress was a halter lavender one made of silk. It didn't poof out much but also didn't cling to every curve in her body.

Temari's was a forest green dress that did cling to every curve in her body, it was also strapless and had a knee high slit. Over the chest was covered in a different shade of green sequence.

Ino had a dark purple strapless dress that was very tight until it came to her hips and it didn't poof out but it was layered ruffles.

My dress was scarlet red and it flowed over my body evenly. There was a front slit just below the knees, it was a halter that connected to the part of the dress that covered the chest with a silver ring. A small design of silver sequence was on the chest.

We were all dressed up now and were just fiddling with the makeup.

Ino had finally gotten me to wear a little more mascara and luscious red lipstick. There was a little blush on my cheeks and some eyeshadow with foundation of course and the tinciest bit of eye liner. But when Sakura tried to put it on my eyes started to water making it extremely difficult.

"You're going to wear those heels Tenten," Ino informed me.

"If it's the last thing we do make you do," Temari added with a smirk, holding up the red high heels.

I gulped. This wasn't going to turn out well.

"Ow," I complained. "I can't walk,"

"Calm down," Ino told me. "You'll get used to it,"


The heels were high. On each foot they were really skinny and the shoe has straps that wrapped around my ankle crossing in any possible place.

"So what should we do with you're hair?" Sakura asked.

Ino smirked. "Take it out of those buns," the blonde inched closer.

I back away. "No, you wouldn't,"

"Oh yes we would," Sakura answered with a laugh.

"Hinata do something?" I asked the shy girl.

She hardly looked up from sitting on the ground. "Sorry Tennie,"


Temari grabbed me by the hair, yanking me down.

"Cooperate and we'll make this painless," she tugged.

"Ow, ow, ow," I whined. "Okay, I give in,"

I sat in their evil chair of doom while they took out the messy buns, letting my hair cascade down my back.

"It's cute," Hinata commented.

"Totally," Ino agreed.

"Time to curl it," Sakura announced.

I squeezed my eyes shut, trying to ignore the curling iron clasping onto my hair.

"Don't kill them, don't kill them, don't kill them," I kept muttering to myself.

"There," Temari finished.

"Done," Ino added.

I opened my eyes and saw my long, waist length hair was curled into long, separate locks. My bangs were neatly combed down and there was a red rose/clip on the left side of my head.

"What do you think?" Sakura asked.

"I-I like it," I stammered. It looked really cute.

"I do too," Hinata also put in.

They all had their hair pretty much the same as the last dance.

Hinata's was wavy, Ino braided her ponytail the night before and took it out, Temari put in four matching flower clips on each of her "spikes" and Sakura curled her hair this time.

"What do we do while we wait?" Ino asked.

"Don't know," Sakura replied.

"Hmm," I did something that will interest you all.

I pulled out my cell phone and started to punch the numbers ferociously.


Neji: I thought you said you were nervous

Me: same ting

Neji: What do you want me to do about it

Me: ur my BF comfort me

Neji: Like how?

Me: somhow

Neji: How about you leave me alone, Ten?

Me: HEY!

Neji: I'm busy and will talk to you later

Me: Fine c ya!

Me: Sasuke Y is Neji ignoring me

Sasuke: plz stop bothering

Me: Y

Sasuke: I'm busy

Me: ...

Sasuke: o rite. Go away



"No one wants to talk," I grumbled.

"Um, we do," Ino said.

"Not you," I hissed.

They sweat dropped. "Thanks,"

"Sorry," I apologized.

"Eh, It's okay," Temari said.

I started to think. I felt as if something was missing...

"THE WATCH!" I cried.

The girls looked at me questioningly.

I grabbed my old jeans I was wearing before and starting digging through the pockets. Finally my hand grasped the metal wrist decoration and yanked it out.

I held out the watch.

"Cute!" Ino cried. "Put it on,"

I secured it on my wrist, admiring it as I always did when it was put on.

"Who gave it to you?" Sakura asked.

"Neji," I remarked, still turning my arm to see it at different angles.

"Man, he must love you," Sakura answered.

I sighed. "I know,"

"And you love him?"

"Of course,"

"Well go and dance it out tonight!" Ino cried.

"Um, okay, thanks. Same with you and Shikamaru,"

"Aww yeah,"

"So do you think that they're going to play more waltz music or dance music?" Sakura wondered aloud.

Temari shrugged. "Don't know. They better mix it evenly,"


We met the boys in the hallway like before.

I stared at Neji in his nicely fit tux and he looked very handsome.

Neji found me and walked over.

"You're absolutely beautiful, tonight," He informed me, twirling me around with one arm.

I giggled. "You're very handsome,"

"I see you're wearing the watch," Neji pointed out.

"Hell yeah," I remarked smirking.

"So I take it you like it?" Neji assumed.

"Duh!" I cried. "I would like it if it were a piece of trash because it's from you,"

Neji raised an eyebrow.

"Okay, I might actually take it as an insult if that happened," I admitted.

Neji chuckled. "It's alright," he said. "I wouldn't need to think twice before giving you trash,"

My lips met his. "I know,"

"I've never seen your hair down," we were now walking down the hallway.

"I know," I answered. "It is quite different,"

"It's longer than I expected," Neji added.

"Are you going to linger over my hair anymore?" I questioned.

"It's curled," He put in.

"I know," I grumbled. "Do you like it?"

"No matter what," he smiled.


We walked through the hallway and I bumped into someone, knocking both of us over.

"Sorry," I murmured and apology, picking myself, then realized who it was.

"You," I hissed.






"Already said,"

The redhead glared at me. "What did you say?"

"You heard,"

Neji stepped in front of me protectively.

"Don't you dare touch her," He hissed.

"Calm down," I told him. "She's nothing without her boys that aren't here,"

"Not exactly," a voice said from behind us.

"Even worse," I grumbled.

Victor scowled. "So you remember me?"

"How can I forget?"

"I was being sarcastic,"

"And I was being pissed,"

Neji grabbed the boys shirt collar. "Give me one reason why I shouldn't beat you to death right now?" He demanded.

"You're in a school," I whispered from behind him.

Neji let go of the shirt, wiping off his tux. "Touch Tenten and I will not hesitate to kill you,"

"Come on," I said, pulling Neji away.

"What took so long?" Ino asked boredly, leaning against the entrance to the gym.

"We came across Karin and Victor," I replied nonchalantly.

"WHAT?!" Sakura demanded.

"Let me rip her to shreds," Temari hissed.

"Guys," I sweat dropped. "let's just go,"

"She's right," Hinata agreed. "It's o-only going to cause m-more trouble,"

The other girls reluctantly entered the gym, followed by the boys.

The gym was playing a slow song so we politely waited for it to end.

Neji held out his hand. I took it gracefully and he gave me another spin.

"Still remember how to dance?" He asked.

"I've had some lessons from the master," I admitted.

"I am that good aren't I?" He inquired.

"Yep," I replied, letting my head rest on his shoulder.

He put his hands on my waist and I wrapped my arms around his neck, resting all my weight on him.

"Tired?" He asked.

"No," I remarked. "Just resting,"

He chuckled and started to stroke my spine, sending shivers up it. He moved his hands up and down my back, soothing it.

My entire body shook.

"Why do you do that?" He questioned.

"Don't know," I answered.

"But you say it doesn't bother you?" Neji asked.

"No," I clarified. "it doesn't,"

"You're a strange girl,"

"I know," I replied.

"How'd we end up like this?" Neji wondered out loud.

I shook my head. "It's unexpected isn't it?"

"But it happened."

"Yep, unexpectedly happened," I giggled. "That sounds funny,"

Neji raised an eyebrow. "An unexpected happening?"

I nodded.

"Is that what we call our relationship,"

"Sure," I agreed.

The waltz ended and the song Fire Burning came on.

I smirked. Time to rock it out.

I bounced up and down to the beat, going crazy like always.

Now, I got all the girls together and we all danced like there was no tomorrow.

"Somebody call 9-1-1, shawty fire burning on the dance floor oh oh oh!"

We were singing to but didn't mind if anyone stared.

Neji smirked in amusement. I never failed to surprise him.

We got all the boys now except Sasuke and Neji to dance along.

Naruto scooped up Hinata and spun the girl around.

We all copied and Neji laughed as I clung onto him for dear life.

"I'm so...tired," I panted, along with everyone else.

Neji hadn't even broken a sweat but got us both drinks anyways.

Ino breathed heavily as she laid on Shikamaru on one of the benches. He was boredly playing with her golden blonde hair.

Neji soon returned with the drinks.

"You test it first," I told him.

He took a sip and gagged. "So *gag* much *gag* worse!"

"Anko," I grumbled. "We should've known,"

"Did you know this time?" Neji asked.

"No," I lied.

"You're lying,"

I smirked. "Maybe,"

"You just enjoy my pain don't you?" Neji inquired.

"Not as much as I enjoy you," I told him.

"C'mon," Neji laughed. "Let's get you some water, don't want you dehydrated,"

"Guess not," I replied following him.

Neji poured the water and handed it to me.

I made a quick decision and pushed it away, crashing my lips against his.

"That was unexpected," Neji laughed.

"Neji," I told him. "Face it, we are unexpected,"

He chuckled. "Tell me about-"

I grabbed his hand he pulled him out, lifting up my dress as best as I could while I ran with him.

He followed laughing. "Ten, where are we go-"

I yanked open the door of our dorm and pinned him to the bed.

He smiled. "I should've known,"

I leaned in and smirked against his lips. "Yes you should,"

"But we're unexpected,"Neji finished my sentence.

I pulled him into a long and passionate kiss. "Yep,"

Then we continued.

So maybe Neji was a bastard. So what if he was cold, or an ice cube. I got through his little barrier. And if he had not been broken, I'm sure I can turn that ice into water by the end of tonight because you never know, put Neji Hyuuga and I together, you have no idea what can happen. We're unexpected!
