About to reach the climax of their battle, both combatants prepared to clash once again. Neji was already charging at Shidomaru, and Shidomaru was already performing hand signs…

"Suiton: Tsumetai Arashi!" Shidomaru shouted as he cast a fierce blizzard upon Neji. But even though Neji was suffering the painful cold of Shidomaru's attacks and his body was starting to freeze, he still managed to reach Shidomaru…

"Juuken!" Neji shouted as he attacked Shidomaru, who seemingly dodged the full force of the attack and was just barely touched. Still, Shidomaru was feeling intense pain…

"Fuck!" Shidomaru protested…

"I missed…" Neji stated. "When I hit all of your chakra points, it all shall be over"

"He doesn't attack with physical strength, remember?" Shidomaru thought to himself. "It's his chakra emissions that I must look out for…"

Shidomaru then jumped backwards and performed more hand signs in mid-air. "Eat this shit!" Shidomaru screamed as he shot various big ice spikes at Neji, but Neji just used Shidomaru's jutsu to reach him by jumping on the projectiles, from one to the next. Shidomaru was horrified, but it was already too late…

"Hasangeki!" Neji shouted as he hit Shidomaru full-force. Hinata closed her eyes, almost feeling Shidomaru's pain as he crashed into the ground, sent flying downwards by the force of Neji's strongest attack. Although wounded, Neji landed square on his feet from the heights…

"So, you say the Byakugan is useless…" Neji said mockingly as he walked towards Shidomaru. "It's too bad you think that way. I think my kekkei genkai is indeed a formidable weapon. Otherwise there wouldn't be so many enemy ninjas trying to obtain it"

Shidomaru was still getting up when Neji started to run towards him and hit him with another Juuken palm-thrust…

"Shidomaru-kun!" Hinata screamed…

"You see… My kekkei genkai, the Byakugan, provides me with 360 degrees of vision, and also lets me see great distances and even through things… I can even see chakra itself, including the chakra points in your body! This lets me easily attack them with Juuken…" Neji gloated…

"So what? ...I don't need stupid X-Ray vision eyes to see through Hinata-chan's clothes or something!" Shidomaru retorted…

"I guess you really didn't come to obtain the Byakugan after all" Neji said in a quiet anger. "If you knew anything about the Byakugan you wouldn't utter such nonsense!" he then suddenly shouted as he hit Shidomaru again, this time blocking a chakra point, which Hinata also noticed by watching with her own Byakugan…

"Shidomaru-kun! Please stop, Neji nii-san!" Hinata screamed as she started to cry again…

"…And about taking Hinata-sama away from us to live a quiet and happy life…Don't be so arrogant!" said Neji as he hit another chakra point in Shidomaru's chakra net. "What kind of life can a little low-class rogue such as you give to Hiashi-sama's daughter?"

"One much better than the miserable life she's currently having, crushed by the pressures of belonging to the main branch of a filthy elite clan…" Shidomaru defiantly muttered…

"That shall be your final insult to the Hyuga clan…" Neji sternly stated, he then shifted into the stance where the yin-yang appeared below himself and his opponent. "Hakke: Rokujuu Yon Shou!" Neji shouted and started a 64-hit combo, each hit precisely landing into one of Shidomaru's chakra points…

"Shidomaru-kun!" Hinata cried as she witnessed Shidomaru be rapidly pierced to death by Neji's jutsu. Horrified and unable to see any more people getting hurt, Hinata closed her eyes and turned her teary gaze away. The 64th hit of Neji's combo sent Shidomaru flying against the wall, from where he fell to the floor, seemingly dead as blood oozed from his mouth into the frozen ground…

"Fuck… Even he couldn't do it…" Kiba lamented…

"Stop… I can't stand this any longer! I don't wanna see any more people get hurt because of me! …First Kiba-kun… and now Shidomaru-kun too! Even Neji nii-san and the whole village! I don't want to see everyone hurting each other because of me!" the crying Hinata thought to herself as images of every shinobi wounded in the battle for her rescue crossed her mind and her tears rained on the ground below her sad eyes…

As for the dying Shidomaru, no matter how much he tried, his body wouldn't move. His sight was also fading to black as death was already coming to him. "It's useless… I can't move…" he thought to himself. "In the end, I wasn't able to do anything… It's over… everything's over… I'm going to die…" he then slowly closed his eyes, accepting his doom. "Maybe this is the best way for everything to end… for a failure of a shinobi and a criminal who murdered people…" He thought as he remembered the people of his village who despised him, as well as many other people that labeled him as a criminal and prosecuted him as such, including the people of Konoha. "…After all… this world rejects me"

However, just when Shidomaru was about to have his last breath, he somehow was able to hear Hinata's tears that fell from her eyes and collided with the ground below. That sound made him suddenly open his eyes…

"Stooooooop!" Hinata cried out loud to the sky, loud as she had never sounded before. "Please, stop this madness! No more fighting! No more violence! I don't want the people of my village hurting each other because of me any longer!"

It is unknown how, but Hinata's voice somehow echoed through the whole village and was heard by all of its inhabitants. Or rather, it was her feelings that somehow were felt by everyone in the village. Sai heard it as he was drawing a rather exact representation of Hinata's current situation even though he wasn't there to actually see it, but he could somehow feel it. Izumo, Kotetsu, Anko and others whose wounds were being healed also heard it. Shino heard it too as he was still lying on the frozen battlefield where he lost to Shidomaru. Ten Ten heard it as she regained consciousness. Lee and Guy also heard it and stopped fighting each other. Both then looked in direction to the Hyuga house…

"Guy-sensei…!" Lee exclaimed…

"We have made a terrible mistake, Lee…" Guy stated seriously…

The members of team Ino-Shika-Cho who also regained consciousness and were recovering from their battle, with Shikamaru still lying quite comfortably on the ground in the exact same place where Naruto knocked him, heard it as well…

"What a drag… I knew this would happen." Shikamaru thought to himself as he watched the clouds in the morning sky "What a waste this battle has been…"

Sakura and Naruto could also hear it as Sakura was still treating Naruto. "Hinata…" Naruto muttered as he tried to get up despite being still wounded…

"Don't move yet, Naruto!" Sakura exclaimed as she tried to hold Naruto down. At that time, Kirara regained consciousness and sat up…

"Hinata-sama is crying…" Kirara said. Then she stood up and started to walk towards the Hyuga mansion. "We can't waste time lying here…" she added. Being two votes against one, Sakura had no choice but to let Naruto get up and go along with him and Kirara towards the Hyuga mansion.

Meanwhile, Kakashi and Yamato also stopped their fight when they heard Hinata's screaming plea…

"Kakashi-senpai… What's happening in the Hyuga house?" a surprised Yamato asked…

"The truth is about to be revealed… That's what's happening" Kakashi answered calmly…

Finally, Tsunade and Shizune were watching the whole time from the Hokage's office…

"Tsunade-sama…" said a worried Shizune…

"It's not only Hinata Hyuga… The Village Hidden in the Leaves itself is crying…" Tsunade said as she looked through the window at the disaster caused by the whole battle. After some seconds in silence, Tsunade suddenly turned around and angrily walked towards the exit. "Shizune! We're going to the Hyuga house!" Tsunade yelled to her scared assistant, who just squealed in fear and obeyed without questioning…

Meanwhile, back at the Hyuga house, where of course everyone heard Hinata's plea, everyone was left amazed. Most surprised of them all was Shidomaru himself…

"No… Not everyone rejects me…" Shidomaru suddenly thought to himself as he remembered Hinata. "Even after discovering who I am, Hinata-chan still opened her heart to me! Thanks to her, I had even given up on my revenge! …That's right… I gotta live! I gotta live even if for the only person who has accepted me! …No… It wasn't only Hinata-chan who accepted me!"

Then Shidomaru remembered Kirara saying "Whenever we come here, let's play being a family! Shidomaru-san will be the dad, and Hinata-sama will be the mom… And I'll be the daughter!"

The next people Shidomaru remembered were both Naruto and Sakura. With Naruto saying "I promise I'll reunite you and Hinata! Believe it!" with a smile and a thumbs-up, and Sakura saying "That's right! Naruto and I are going to help you, Shidomaru-san"

Then he remembered Shino saying "Please… I beg you… Save Hinata!", Lee saying "Also save this village! Save the people of my village from themselves!", Kakashi saying "Go, Shidomaru of the Hidden Mist! Go save the woman you love!" and Kiba saying "In my left pocket… take a chakra pill… then you might have a chance of defeating Neji"

"Now that's a lot of people, isn't it?" Shidomaru thought to himself, he then surprised himself when he remembered Naruto at some point saying "Don't worry! After this is all over, you'll have a lot of friends! Believe it!"

"Of course… That would have never happened if not for Hinata-chan… I used to hate my life… I wanted to die… But now, I have something… No, rather… someone to live for" Shidomaru thought. Then, he made a last effort and slowly started to get up, which surprised everyone around him…

"Shidomaru-kun!" the crying Hinata said with a smile…

"That's impossible! I hit all of his chakra points! He should be dead by now!" a surprised Neji exclaimed…

When Shidomaru was able to fully get up, he performed a hand sign. After watching him performing that same sign for a while, with the Byakugan active, both Neji and Hinata were horrified…

"What are you doing?" Neji exclaimed…

"That Juuken technique of yours… It's about inserting your chakra into my chakra net in order to stop chakra flow, isn't it? That means you don't destroy my chakra or absorb it, it is still there." Shidomaru explained. "It's like you throw a lot of shit down the toilet until the pipes get clogged… Now, suppose pressure was applied on the clogged pipe. One of two things can happen… One: the clog gets pushed and the water flows again, or Two: the pipe breaks and the water splashes everywhere!"

"No way! You're going to…?" the horrified Neji exclaimed…

"Yes, I am! This is my last resort!" Shidomaru exclaimed, he then started to shout as he concentrated…

"No! Don't do it, Shidomaru-kun!" Hinata screamed. "If you try to open a Chakra Gate with all of your chakra points blocked, you'll…"

But it was too late. Shidomaru opened the Chakra Gate and his chakra pressured on all of the blocked points. Since the chakra net is overlapped with the circulatory system, Shidomaru's blood jetted from the sixty-four little places where Neji had hit him and splashed everywhere as Shidomaru let out a loud and horrible scream in pain. Everyone soon noticed it was no ordinary blood, as it seemed to freeze everything it touched. Chakra was also leaking from the same points, forming a powerful freezing aura of chakra around Shidomaru…

"What is this guy? His chakra and even his blood itself seem to be like ice!" an astonished Neji thought to himself…

In fact, Shidomaru's aura was so cold and so powerful that the otherwise sunny weather of the Village Hidden in the Leaves was overcast by black clouds. Not only the village and the forest surrounding it, but rather the whole region experienced an unnatural snowy weather. The snowfall soon became heavier and heavier…

"It's cold…" Hinata muttered with a shiver. In fact, everyone in the village was shivering from the cold and exhaling clouds of vapor, as they are used to hot weather…

"You can control the weather? What kind of monster are you?" a horrified Neji exclaimed. Shidomaru started to slowly walk towards him without saying a word, but his aura of chakra looked menacingly cold, to the point that everything in Shidomaru's path froze instantly. Neji tried to move, but found himself unable to do so. "My body is numb because of this cold…" He thought to himself…

"I had to forget about physical training in order to strengthen my chakra, as opposed to a taijutsu specialist… Because of this type of training, my chakra is dimensions beyond that of an average shinobi… When I open a Chakra Gate, I can reach minus 80 degrees, the temperature of Antarctica which is the coldest place in the world… If I were to open all eight gates, I would reach minus 273 degrees or Absolute Zero, the temperature at which everything freezes, with no exception… Everything in a large radius, including myself, would be killed…" Shidomaru explained…

"Stop! Don't come closer! Go away!" a terrified Neji screamed as he felt colder and colder with each step Shidomaru walked towards him…

"…Of course, reaching such cold temperatures would require practically infinite amounts of chakra… They used to call Kisame Hoshigaki the Tailed Beast with no tail, but that was because his Samehada sword absorbed the opponent's chakra… The real Tailed Beast with no tail… is me" Shidomaru revealed…

As Neji was becoming blue and starting to freeze because of the extreme cold, Shidomaru extended his hand towards him…

"If Shidomaru-kun touches him…" a horrified Hinata thought to herself. "Shidomaru-kun!" she then screamed, making Shidomaru stop. As Neji fainted from the cold, Shidomaru's cold aura disappeared and he stopped freezing everything around him, leaving Neji miraculously alive. However, Shidomaru was still severely weak from his wounds and the loss of blood, but he nevertheless turned around towards Hinata…

"Hinata-chan, my beloved… don't worry … I'm coming to rescue you" Shidomaru mumbled as he very slowly started to walk towards Hinata to finally set her free. However, well before Shidomaru had reached her, Hinata stuttered for a bit before yelling "D-Don't come, Shidomaru-kun! It's a trap!"

But it was already too late as four ANBU quickly seized Shidomaru. The rogue ninja from the Hidden Mist was finally captured and he wouldn't be able to escape this time…

"I have finally caught you in my grasp… Shidomaru of the Hidden Mist" a cold and emotionless voice sounded. The person who entered the scene was none other than Lord Hiashi Hyuga himself, slowly but steadily walking towards the captured Shidomaru. All of the people from the Hidden Leaf village were also starting to arrive, including practically everyone in the cast of this fanfic. Hiashi was now standing right in front of Shidomaru. The Mist shinobi raised his head to look at Hiashi's Byakugan eyes…

"We meet again, huh?" Shidomaru said…

"Have we met somewhere before? I cannot seem to remember your ugly face…" Hiashi answered…

"The warehouse that burned down seven years ago… right after you bastards beat me to a bloody pulp…" Shidomaru explained…

"What an irony…" Hiashi stated as he narrowed his eyes. "To think you would survive only to end up at my mercy yet again"

"Set Hinata-chan free…" Shidomaru ordered…

"Are you still worried about my disgrace of a daughter? If that is the case, you shall not need to worry anymore…" Hiashi answered…

"If you do anything bad to her… I'll kill you" Shidomaru threatened only to get slapped by the back of Hiashi's hand in response…

"Idiot! Did you really think I was such a monster to kill my own daughter?" said Hiashi. "This execution was only a ruse to bring you here so we could capture you!"

Not only Shidomaru, but everyone around Hiashi, which would be almost the whole Leaf Village, was horrified to learn the truth…

"T-That can't be!" a worried Kirara said…

"What did he just say?" an enraged Naruto growled…

"How dare he?" an offended Sakura exclaimed…

"I apologize to you all for the troubles I have caused to you!" Hiashi spoke to the masses. "To fool your enemy, you must first fool your friend! I shall take the responsibility to compensate you all after we are done with this lowlife!"

"So it is my execution after all…" Shidomaru said to Hiashi…

"That is correct" Hiashi answered…

"That's good… Then Hinata-chan is going to live…" Shidomaru said as he closed his eyes and relaxed. Then he raised his head again to look at Hiashi's eyes again "Listen. I haven't come for the Byakugan… and I don't want to take control of your clan by marrying your daughter…"

"I know… I knew it all along" Hiashi coldly stated, leaving Shidomaru horrified…

"Then why?" the horrified Shidomaru asked…

"Because Hinata is my daughter!" Hiashi exclaimed. "She may be a weakling and a disgrace to our clan but she is still my daughter! As her father, I have the final word on who is going to get engaged to her!"

"For real? ...Like, this is all just because of some jealous father?" Ino protested…

"I told you, didn't I? …Elite clans are very careful when it comes to bloodlines…" a rather unsurprised Shikamaru said…

"But it's still aggravating, Shikamaru!" Choji answered…

"After the disappearance of the Uchiha clan, we the Hyuga clan have become the highest-class family of this village! In order to maintain our bloodline as high and pure as possible, only the best shinobis can marry one of our clan!" Hiashi continued…

"But… Where's love in that?" Lee asked…

"It's just what I said to him earlier, Lee. Each generation of warriors must be stronger than the previous" Ten Ten answered. "But even so, going so far as to do this…" she added…

"Inconceivable!" Guy screamed passionately while posing and crying rivers of tears. "Every man needs love in his life!"

"I see… I understand it now" Shidomaru said to Hiashi…

"Did you finally understand it?" Hiashi asked with confidence, already tasting his victory…

"Yeah… I see you treat your daughter like a dog!" Shidomaru answered, offending Hiashi. "What you're talking about is not called marriage! It's called selective inbreeding! That's how different dog races originated!"

Kiba sat up on the floor as Akamaru got up "Heh! …The ice dude hit right on the mark! Didn't he, Akamaru?" Kiba said to his dog, who answered with a bark…

Shidomaru got slapped by the back of Hiashi's other hand. "We are an elite clan! Of course we undergo a process of selective inbreeding! It is thanks to it that we have produced some of the best ninjas of this village!" Hiashi angrily exclaimed…

"Indeed, Lord Hiashi Hyuga has a point… It's very important that every new ninja can be the best he or she can possibly be… But that doesn't mean that something like love can be rationalized" Shino thought to himself…

"That's how the shinobi world works. Isn't that true, Kakashi-senpai?" Yamato commented…

"A shinobi is a weapon, a tool of war. There's no space for feelings in a shinobi's mind and heart… However, no matter how much we try to deny and suppress our humanity, we are human beings with souls of our own" Kakashi answered…

"Just as I thought… Then Hinata-chan can't be one of you…" Shidomaru stated…

"What?" said an even further offended Hiashi…

"…It's my guess you've been undergoing selective inbreeding for many generations now… All of the ninjas produced by the Hyuga clan should be as insensitive and merciless as you… but Hinata-chan is just the opposite of a Hyuga. She's kind, tender, sweet, compassionate…" Shidomaru continued speaking until Hiashi hit his stomach with his Juuken, causing him to cough up blood…

"Listen well, scum… My very twin brother sacrificed himself to protect our precious blood and Kekkei Genkai from the likes of you… If that filthy blood you have just spewed got mixed with ours, then my dear brother's efforts would be wasted…" Hiashi said to Shidomaru. "That's why I shall never let you into the Hyuga clan! You shall not taint our blood! Nor shall you have the Byakugan! It shall only happen over my dead body!" he then shouted in a sudden rage. "The union between you and my daughter is a forbidden romance! That must never happen!"

However, the effect that Hiashi got was not the desired one. All of a sudden, he found himself surprised as the multitude that had gathered around the Hyuga house was starting to boo him…

"Injustice!" Kirara shouted. "Hinata-sama and Shidomaru-san were made for each other!"

"Just let them be together, you asshole!" Naruto shouted…

"Hiashi Hyuga is a tyrant!" Sakura shouted…

"Love's enemy!" Ino shouted…

"Unforgivable!" Choji shouted…

"Don't deprive Hinata-san and Shidomaru-kun of their youth!" Lee shouted passionately as he cried rivers of tears…

"Well shouted, Lee! Youth rules!" Guy shouted, also very passionately and crying rivers of tears…

Hiashi was horrified. All of a sudden, the whole Village Hidden in the Leaves was supporting the romance he had been trying to forbid all this time…

"That's enough, Hiashi-sama…" Neji muttered as he somehow was managing to get up despite being seriously damaged by the cold that Shidomaru had produced earlier. "Please, don't use my father as a justification for your recent acts…"

"Neji… Not you too!" a surprised Hiashi exclaimed…

"This person by the name of Shidomaru… Yes, he may be a low scum. He may be at the bottom of social hierarchy… But… he faced against an entire village only to try to save Hinata-sama's life… He didn't mind if he had to sacrifice himself in order to do so, as his last jutsu also affected his own body" Neji explained. Hiashi then looked closely and noticed that, indeed, the extreme cold affected Shidomaru's body as well, since even for an inhabitant of a cold land a temperature of minus 80 degrees is too much cold. "He risked it all for Hinata-sama's life… while I, trapped between my loyalty to the Hyuga clan and my love for Hinata-sama, wasn't able to make the right choice… So please, Hiashi-sama… I beg you to stop this madness!" Neji added…

The shocked Hiashi didn't know what to say to his nephew Neji, the son of the very man who sacrificed his life for him years ago…

"F-Father…" Hinata timidly whispered, though mysteriously she was still able to catch her father's attention despite the noise from the angry crowd. "I… I was also distrustful of Shidomaru-kun at first… but… H-He not only comforted me when I was sad… As Neji nii-san said, he struggled against a whole village just to save me. Shidomaru-kun risked his life for me! ...Father, I… I-I love Shidomaru-kun!"

When Shidomaru heard Hinata say that, he couldn't believe his own ears. He had already stated that he loved Hinata countless times, but this was the very first time that Hinata explicitly stated that she loved Shidomaru. Hinata's revelation also surprised Hiashi, as well as angered him…

"Hinata, I forbid you to…!" Hiashi exclaimed in anger…

"That's quite enough, Hiashi!" Tsunade's voice shouted from the distance, interrupting Hiashi. The whole crowd shut up and then people stepped aside to open a path for Tsunade, who entered the central scene escorted by Shizune…

"You have arrived just in the nick of time, Hokage-sama! The whole village seems to have gone crazy! All of a sudden, everyone seems to want me to let my daughter get engaged to some… criminal!" Hiashi said to Tsunade…

"Hiashi Hyuga… There's only one reason why I gave you permission to carry out your little plan…" Tsunade answered…

"What was it, Hokage-sama?" Hiashi asked…

"I've had my eyes on the battles that have been happening here all along, thanks to the seeds I ordered Yamato to plant on Naruto and the others' clothes" Tsunade started to explain. Naruto and Sakura started searching their clothes and each found one seed…

"Just when did Captain Yamato put this here?" the puzzled Naruto wondered, not aware that it was when Sai tied him, Sakura and Shidomaru with the ink snakes…

"As the shadow who watches over this village, I have seen everything that Shidomaru, Naruto and Sakura have been doing up to now! And you, loyal shinobis of the Hidden Leaf who have bravely fought against them, have directly witnessed their actions!" Tsunade continued explaining. "And I can see that many of you have already reached a conclusion" she added, to which Kiba, Shino, Lee, Shikamaru and Kakashi all nodded…

"Then you most certainly are aware of it, Hokage-sama. This dangerous criminal named Shidomaru is a threat to the Hyuga clan as well as the Village Hidden in the Leaves in its entirety!" Hiashi exclaimed…

"Ahem! …Furthermore… I, Tsunade Senju, as the Fifth Hokage and the judge of this trial, with all of the Hidden Leaf shinobis as witnesses and jury, have reached a verdict!" Tsunade proclaimed out loud to all of her people. Seconds of silence and suspense filled the entire village as everyone got worried except Hiashi, who overconfidently smiled thinking he had already won…

"Hiashi Hyuga!" Tsunade then exclaimed, surprising everyone around her, but especially shocking Hiashi himself. "I sentence you to accept Shidomaru of the Village Hidden in the Mist as a member of your clan and to engage him to your elder daughter Hinata Hyuga!"

"Allright!" Naruto shouted out loud. Then the whole crowd started to celebrate. Hinata blushed and smiled at a shocked Shidomaru. Our young Hidden Mist shinobi believed he was in a dream…

"B-But… Hokage-sama! Are you trying to bring the Hyuga clan to its downfall?" Hiashi furiously protested…

"Open your eyes!" Tsunade shouted louder than Hiashi. "Shidomaru's abilities are good enough to contend against Jounin-level ninjas! On top of that, he put everything he had for the sake of protecting your daughter Hinata! Can you ask for a better fiancé for her?" and with that argument, Hiashi had no other choice but to shut up…

"Untie Hinata! Now!" Tsunade ordered. A random chunin came from behind Hinata and cut the ropes restraining her, setting her free…

"Shidomaru-kun!" Hinata exclaimed happily as she ran to hug Shidomaru, who the four ANBU dropped into her arms. Hinata and Shidomaru hugged each other with all of their affection put into it…

"Hinata-sama looks so happy…" Kirara said as she shed tears of joy…

"We too, Sakura-chan!" Naruto exclaimed as he tried to hug Sakura, only to get punched and sent against a wall again…

"Beware where you put those hands, you perv! Shannaro!" Sakura exclaimed angrily…

"Shidomaru of the Village Hidden in the Mist!" Tsunade shouted next, making everyone shut up and listen. She then pointed at Shidomaru with her index finger. "For your misdeeds, I sentence you to work for the Village Hidden in the Leaves for the rest of your life! You will put everything you've got to protect this village and its people!"

"Uh…" Shidomaru said, about to object…

"No objections allowed!" Tsunade shouted to make Shidomaru shut up. She then calmed down and smiled. "Welcome to our lines, Shidomaru of the Hidden Leaf Village"

Tsunade's recent decision only made Hinata happier as she blushed and smiled to the puzzled Shidomaru. The rest of the village also celebrated, save for Hiashi…

"What a drag… I'll now have to design strategies to make use of Popsicles's ice abilities" Shikamaru complained as he rubbed the back of his head with his hand…

Everyone shut up as Tsunade was about to speak again "I also sentence you to make your fiancée Hinata Hyuga happy every day of her life! For each day she is unhappy with you, you shall pay a visit to Ibiki!"

The worried Shidomaru then looked at Ibiki, who waved a hello with an evil smirk on his face…

Shidomaru then made another one of his evil grins "Sorry, Torturer-san… I think we're never going to see each other again"

And the crowd celebrated as Shidomaru and Hinata hugged each other again. Then both of them came face to face…

"Um… S-Shidomaru-kun… I…" the blushing Hinata whispered as she avoided looking at Shidomaru's eyes…

"I've gotta tell you something, Hinata-chan…" a blushing Shidomaru said to Hinata, looking directly into her white eyes. She gasped and quickly looked at Shidomaru's eyes as well "Believe it or not, this is my first time… I know it should be perfect, but…" Shidomaru said rather nervously…

"Shidomaru-kun… J-Just be yourself" Hinata answered. And then, with the whole village of Konoha as their witnesses, the newly-engaged Shidomaru and Hinata passionately shared their first kiss…
