Hey! Sorry this took so long!
So here it is!! The final chapter! For the last time...I hope you enjoy it!
Hinata rolled on to her back and pulled the sheets even higher, inhaling his scent and closing her eyes. She still could not quite believe how Sasuke made her feel, how amazing the previous night had been, even after what had happened to her. And he loved her too? Finally, after everything that had happened in the past month or so, things were finally going right for her.
When Hinata had finally stopped smiling, which had taken quite a while, she dragged herself out of bed. She had decided it would be best if she got dressed, after all she did not want Naruto to see her naked again. She found her top and held in her hand for a second before choosing to have a quick shower first. They probably would not be back for at least half an hour anyway.
About ten minutes later, Hinata was running her fingers through her hair in an attempt to dry it a bit. She found her clothes and put them on quickly, before picking up her hoodie and enveloping herself in it. Immediately she felt even better. Hinata made her way to the kitchen to get some breakfast. Naruto probably would not hate her for eating his food, as long as she made him some too. She opened the fridge and cupboards, and seeing there was enough to make breakfast for all three of them, she started to get out everything she would need. She looked up as the door opened, her heart lifting as soon as she saw him.
His expression was bored, maybe a little annoyed, but did she see a flicker of unease when he looked at her? She wondered what was wrong with him. Had she done something wrong? Her heart clenched in worry. Then she saw Naruto. He was looking at her with wide blue eyes, grinning like a maniac.
"Hi," he said brightly, the grin never leaving his face. He looked from Hinata to Sasuke, then back again. What the hell was wrong with him? Had Sasuke drugged him or something?
"Why is he looking at me like that?" Hinata asked nervously. Sasuke did not respond, instead his eyes flickered away from hers. Naruto elbowed him in the ribs, earning a punch from Sasuke.
"Go on, do it!" Naruto said excitedly, pushing Sasuke forward. Do what?
"Fuck off for a minute will you?!" Sasuke hissed back at him. Sasuke looked at the floor, taking a deep breath. Was he…nervous? Hinata's brow furrowed. What were they planning?
Naruto left the room, but he still peeked out from behind a door. Looks like that was best Sasuke was going to get short of killing the blonde. He inhaled again, trying to shake this nervous feeling. Sasuke Uchiha did not get nervous. He walked towards Hinata and took hold of her hands, looking her in the eyes.
"Hinata," he started, straightening up in an effort to feel more comfortable.
"YOU ARE NOT DOING IT RIGHT!" Naruto shouted, bursting through the door and pointing at him. "You have to get down on one knee!" Down on one knee? Was this what Hinata thought it was?
"Fuck off!" Sasuke shouted back, making Naruto retreat back into the room.
He sighed before begrudgingly getting down on one knee, still holding her hands. He looked up at Hinata, her eyes wide. He looked down again and pulled the ring from his pocket. He looked at it for a second before his eyes met hers. He held the ring in front of her.
Hinata looked at him in shock. Did he really just ask her to marry him? She looked at the ring. The thin silver band was elegant and complemented the three diamonds that adorned the ring. The middle one was the biggest, with two smaller ones sitting either side. "It is beautiful," she breathed.
"I hope that means 'yes'," he said nervously. He had not realised until that second just how much he wanted her to say yes. What had started by accident this morning was now something he wanted more than anything else in the world. To have her by his side for the rest of his life. To love her like no one else could. To start a family with her. His breath caught in his throat as she looked back at him. Anything could happen. Either of them could be dead tomorrow. He did not want to waste another second.
He wanted to take that risk, to jump off that cliff, and he wanted to do it with her.
She looked back at him. His eyes were hopeful. What if this was too soon? Was she too young? And they had only actually admitted their feelings last night…what should she do? She remained silent for a moment, deep in thought.
"Yes," she said simply. She did not care about any reason not to do it, because she loved him more than anything. She could not see herself feeling like this with anyone else, so why should she not marry him? He smiled, getting to his feet in a flash and picking her up in a tight embrace, making Hinata squeak in surprise. He buried his face in her hair, breathing in her scent.
"I love you," he whispered, right next to her ear, sending a shiver down her spine.
"I love you too," she replied, tears in her eyes. He put her down and kissed her, more passionately than ever before. Hinata wrapped her arms around his neck, and he held her tighter still against him, deepening the kiss.
"Yay!" Naruto exclaimed, bursting out of the room again. Hinata broke away from Sasuke, embarrassed, but with a smile on her face. The blonde ran over to them and hugged them both tightly. He let go after a few seconds, still grinning idiotically.
"This is going to be great!" he exclaimed. He ran out of the room, to the kitchen. "I'm starving!" he shouted. Sasuke wondered how his mind could change track so quickly. He looked back down at Hinata, who was still in his arms. Why did she look so sad?
"Hey," he said softly, tilting her chin up to look at her properly. "What is the matter?"
Hinata snapped out of her thoughts at the sound of Sasuke's voice.
"Oh…it is nothing," she replied, looking back down.
"Tell me," he said in a commanding voice, though he was trying to sound concerned, but Hinata knew he still was not used to being that kind to anyone so she forgave him.
"It is just…you still have to ask my father if you can marry me," she said quietly, looking away.
Fuck. He had forgotten about that.
"Let me get this straight," Hiashi said, his face serious. "You want to marry my daughter?" Sasuke swallowed.
"Yes," he said firmly. He looked Hiashi in the eyes, hiding his nerves. There was an excruciating silence for a good few minutes.
"Fine," Hiashi said finally. Sasuke narrowed his eyes. Had he somehow misheard him? He was expecting some big speech about how he was a traitor or how Hinata could not marry outside the clan. He must have some agenda for him to agree.
"What?" he said suspiciously.
"I said 'fine'," he repeated. The two stared at each other for a few more minutes.
"I did not expect you to go along with this so easily," Sasuke said, unable to take the silence any more, which was quite unusual for him.
"It will be interesting to see what happens when Hyuuga and Uchiha blood mixes," he started simply. "Hanabi will take over as heir."
Sasuke clenched his fists. So that was it? He was using his love for Hinata as some kind of…sick experiment?! And by marrying her off to a different family he would be able to make Hanabi heir. God, Hinata's father really was a bastard. He wanted to rip out the man's intestines, but by doing so he knew he probably would not be allowed to marry Hinata anymore.
"Fine," he hissed through gritted teeth, leaving the room before he did something he would regret.
3 months later
Sasuke held the photo frame with both hands. He smiled to himself as he remembered the day it was taken. She looked sensational, in a pristine white wedding kimono and hood. Her pale skin was a perfect contrast to her red lips and slightly smoky eyes. Sasuke was stood next to her, but he did not look at the camera, he was focused entirely on Hinata. He could not remember being happier. His thoughts were cut off as his wife came through the door.
Hinata took a deep breath before opening the door. Should she be this nervous? What if he was angry when she told him? Pushing the thought aside, she stepped in to the house. Her heart skipped a beat as he turned around to face her, putting a photo frame down as he strode to her. God, he was so gorgeous. Hinata sighed in happiness as Sasuke wrapped his arms around her. He held her tightly for a few seconds before kissing her passionately. It still sent a jolt down her spine to feel his lips on hers. When he broke away from her he had a smile on his face so warm it broke Hinata's heart.
"I missed you," he said, touching the side of her face. "Did the mission go ok?"
"Yes, it was fine," Hinata smiled, trying to hide her nervousness. But if she didn't tell him now when would she?
"What's wrong?" asked Sasuke, concerned, seeing his wife was trying to hide something.
"Umm…you know…b-before the mission, I was not feeling well?" she started, unable to look him in the eyes.
"Yes?" Sasuke replied, hooking his hand under her chin and tilting her head up, forcing her to look at him. "You are better now though, right?"
Hinata's heart clenched as she saw the worry in Sasuke's handsome features, his brow furrowed. She struggled for her words to come out.
"Pregnant," Hinata blurted. Her eyes were wide as she looked at Sasuke, waiting for a response.
Then something happened that Hinata never thought she would witness. Sasuke crumpled to the floor, unconscious, dragging Hinata with him.
"Sasuke?" Hinata said. Ouch, her head hurt. She must have banged it on the floor. "Sasuke?"
She sat up and swivelled round to kneel at his side. Hinata had always thought he looked so peaceful and stunning when he was asleep, or in this case, unconscious.
"Sasuke?" she said again, touching his cheek. His enchanting eyes fluttered open. He reached up to brush some hair from her face.
"Pregnant?" Hinata nodded, her breath in her throat. She let the breath go with relief as he smiled at her, before pulling her head down to kiss her. She closed her eyes as the kiss lengthened, but they flew open in shock as Sasuke tackled her to the ground so that he was on top of her. His eyes were filled with love as he looked at her.
Sasuke could not quite believe it. What had he done to deserve this incredible woman? And now she was pregnant with his child? Happiness and adrenaline consumed him as he looked down at her beautiful face. And why should he not be happy? After all the pain he had been through, the pain they had been through, should he not have a chance at a normal life? Even after the terrible things he had done in his short lifetime, surely he deserved this?
He smiled down at her. He was going to be a father.
"I love you, Hinata Uchiha," he said, smiling.
"I love you too," Hinata smiled back.
She closed her eyes as Sasuke brushed his lips against hers, before kissing her, slow and passionate, making her dizzy with happiness.
When Sasuke pulled away he placed one of his hands on her lower stomach, looking down at it.
He looked up at her, smiled and kissed her once more.
