Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto or any of the Naruto characters in any way, shape, or form. (Sadly)

This is my first story. Yea I know, people say that all the time and ask for nice reviews. But with me, be honest and tell me your opinion.

Naruto was sitting on the Hokage Head Monuments Wondering thinking about his fight with Pain. Wondering what his life would be like now that Pain is gone and that he knows how Hinata really felt about him for all these years. He yawned as he turned onto his side and fell asleep dreaming about his fight.

-Naruto's dream-

"Pain! I can't just stand here watching you destroy my village!" Shouted Naruto standing on top of the Boss Toad, along with the Boss' son, the Sage Toad Fukasaku and two other huge toads. Ma, Fukasaku's Wife Shima appeared and stood next to Fukasaku and Naruto.

"Tsunade!" Fukasaku said as he watched the Fifth Hokage stagger to her feet on the ground facing the six Pains.

"I…am the Fifth Hokage! It is my duty to stop any one that tries to harm this village or the people that live here!" she yelled to Pain as a member of the Anbu landed next to her trying to help his Hokage. Asura Pain leapt forward towards the weakened Hokage in an attempted to attack her, just to be stopped by Naruto and his Rasengan.

-End of dream-

Right at that moment Naruto awoke to when he heard someone calling his name. He sat up and looked around to find Sakura as she walked next to him and sat with him on the head monuments.

"Hai, Sakura-chan?" said an exhausted Naruto as he rubbed the back of his head. "I knew I'd find you here." She said with a smile as she hugged Naruto, who flinched thinking he'd get punched "Thank you for saving everyone and the village Naruto." He returned Sakura's hug and said "It's my nindo; I said I'd protect my village and my friends no matter what."

"H-how are you feeling N-naruto-kun?" asked a soft, timid voice. Naruto turned around and saw Hinata Hyuga standing there. Naruto looked down to the ground before speaking "Hinata-chan, I'm sorry for what happened." Hinata walked over to him and kneeled down in front of him. "I'll give you two some time alone. I hope you're feeling better Hinata." Sakura said as she walked away.

"Naruto, why are you apologizing?" Hinata said with a slight blush as she looked at her crush.

"Cause I let you get hurt, and for this." Naruto lifted his head so he was face to face with Hinata and he kissed her softly before looking away as he blushed a bright red. Hinata was breathless after Naruto looked away.

"W-why are you sorry Naruto-kun?" she placed a hand on Naruto's face and turned it back to her's. "I never noticed how you felt and when you said that I was so shocked I couldn't move." He took a deep breath and continued. "I'm sorry about the kiss." He stood up and started to walk away when Hinata grabbed his arm. "Don't be, I've loved you for so long. I couldn't help myself when I saw you lying on the ground in your fight with Pain. It's my fault I got injured." Naruto stopped and looked down at Hinata who had tears in her eyes from her statement. "Hinata, I never realized how you felt, and I feel the same way towards you." He said before kissing her softly on her pale skinned lips as he wiped her tears away with his thumb. "I love you Hinata Hyuga. I just never realized it till now."

How's that? If people like it enough I'll continue it into a few more chapters. (At first anyway.)
