Okay I got the idea for this fic from this song. Vermillion pt.2 by Slipknot. Umm kinda Sad, but in the end all is good. This takes place during timeskip :D so their in their older versions.

She seemed dressed in all of me,
stretched across my shame.
All the torments and the pain,
leak through and covered me.

Neji watched. As painfull as it was he watched. They had trained for years together and been best friends. Up intil the year before, Neji knew he loved her. But after waiting a year he saw what chance he'd missed. The girl he loved, Tenten, the weapons mistress was now standing with Kankuro of the Sand under and umbrella, kissing him. Neji stood behind a tree near them, one palm slipping away from the trunk of the tree he once held onto. The rain drenched him compleatly. Not that it mattered. He turned his head up to the sky and blamed fate. To think he was just starting to . . . well not believe in fate, but who else is there to blame but himself. He should've saw the chance. He should'ce taken it. But he didn't.

I'd do anything to have her to myself,
just to have her for myself.
Now I don't know what to do,
I don't know what to do
When she makes me sad.

He knew that if anything could be done to make Tentenhis, he would do it. Even if it came to assasinating cat-boy. He loved her so much, yet she couldn't see that. Ever since she had been seeing the puppeteer, Neji had acted very cold and distant from her. He saw the hurt in her eyes when he never greeted her at training. But he loved her so much. He would follow her un-seen when she went home, he would watch her sleep from the tree in her backyard, just to make sure she was safe. He would do anything to have Tenten to himself.

Neji heard an agonised moan, and looked up to see the two of them still kissing but soon Tenten began trashing her arms at Kankuro hitting him in the chest, which didn't affect him much. He grabbed her wrists and violently pinned her to a tree not far from the one Neji was hidding behind. Neji fumed as he watched this. Well now he had a reason to kill him. He jumped out from his hiding spot and threw 2 shuriken at Kankuro. One missed his head by and inch and the other sunk deep into his right hand. Kankuro quickly pulled his face away from Tenten to look at Neji. He growled deep in his throat, before shouting. " What the hell are you doing here Hyuuga?" "I've come for Tenten." "Huh?" Tenten took Kankuro's confusion as her chance. She quickly kneed Kankuro in the stomach, as his hands feel from her wrists, she ran over to Neji only to get caught in his soft embrace. Tenten's tear soaked Neji's shirt, but made no difference compared to the rain.

"Neji..." Tenten sobbed. "Shh..It's okay I'm here." Neji tried his best to comfort the crying girl. He used his quick speed too set her in a tree kissing her cheek and telling her that he would be right back. He leapt to the ground to glare at Kankuro and began to fight. He used his Jyuuken against him, smirking, only to find the outer layer melt into mud due to rain, to reveal Kankuro's puppet. Neji leapt back. Kankuro stepped out from behind a tree, the blue chakra emmiting from his fingers controlling the puppet. Kankuro began rambling on about how Tenten was so stupid to think he actually liked her. And that Neji was balanced on the same level of stupidity thinking Tenten was worth anything. Neji was angry, very angry. He ran at Kankuro with in-human speed screeching to a halt infront of the real one. In all but three seconds, Neji shouted, "Hakke Hyaku Nijūhachi Shō!" As the chakra emmited from his fingers as he stabbed Kankuro exactly One Hundred Twenty-Eight times, Kankuro coughed up blood as he was backed into a tree by 64. By the time Neji was finished, He used gentle fist Kankuro has broke right through 5 trees then, not very suprizingly, stopped moving.

But I won't let this build up inside of me,
I won't let this build up inside of me,
I won't let this build up inside of me,
I won't let this build up inside of me.

Neji ran back to the tree he had left Tenten and pulled the girl into his lap after he sat down. His arm held her upper back and head, while his other hand rested on her knees. Tear tracks were seen on her face, and the customary buns in her hair were dishevled. But he loved her. He held Tenten to his chest as her crying subsided. She looked up at Neji whispering, "Thank you Neji." Neji smiled warmly at her and wrapped both arms around her, protectivly.

Neji choked out his next few words. "Tenten. . . I . . . Tenten I love you." Tenten looked up at Neji. She never thought she would hear those words come from his mouth. She leaned up and kissed him gently on his lips, before murmuring, "Neji. . .I know you probablly wont believe me but I love you too." Neji looked at her, a smile still planted on his face. He gently cupped her cheek with his hand and placed his lips on hers.

But I won't let this build up inside of me,
I won't let this build up inside of me,
I won't let this build up inside of me,
I won't let this build up inside of me.

Tenten placed her hand on Neji's shoulder. Needing air, they seperated. "So, why did you get together with Kankuro anyway?" Tenten saddened but blushed. "Well he asked me out. . . and I thought it would be a good opportunity to make you umm. . ." "Jealous?" Neji continued for her. Tenten nodded her head. "I thought so" he added. They both smilled.

Neji stood up, picking Tenten up bridal style and carried her away from this place to a better one. He carried her all through town, while people stared, elderly people smiled whispering to each toher something like "Aww young love." or "Finally." Neji carried her to the beach with white sand and clear waters, outside of Konoha. He set Tenten down on a large rock as they proceeded to kiss each other.


Kankuro didn't die, but was sent to teh hospital for a full body cast. Neji took it up with Tsunade what had happened. Tsunade smiled ordering that Kankuro was never to set foot in the Hidden Leaf without her permision.

Almost two years after the incident Neji finally got the courage to ask Tenten to marry him. Hiashi was pleased when Tenten said yes, and gladly accepted her into the clan. Neji and Tenten had two children, a boy named Lee (named after their ever so loving and supportive teamate) and a girl named Yuna.

And they all lived happily ever after. Except Kankuro of course who to this day is still only accepted to work at a makeup Kiosk.
