One day in Konoha, Naruto was walking down the street like usual. "Man, it's so boring here," he said. "With everyone being on missions, why am I the only one still here" he asked himself. While talking to himself, he was snapped out of his daze at the sound of a monstrous noise.

"I guess it's time to go to Ichiraku and get some of that oh so delicious ramen," he said as he jumped on the rooftops and quickly headed to his favorite eating spot. After thirty minutes of walking, Naruto had arrived at Ichiraku Ramen only to find that the shop was closed do to a shortage of supplies.

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO," he yelled at the top of his lungs attracting attention from the villagers who wondered what all the fuss was about.

"Why are they closed on the day that I am even hungrier than Choji," he wondered. As he walked away he noticed out of the corner of his eye a certain kunoichi with a very large scroll on her back. he had also noticed her hair was woven into two round balls shaped like onigiri. Without a second thought he knew who the person was without missing a beat and called out to her.

"HEY TENTEN," he hollered at the top of his voice to get her to turn around. She turned around to see the blond future hokage running up to her at full speed. She had blushed heavy knowing the embarrassment that would come if he saw her blushing. She turned around and started to run away from him.

"Oh no, If he sees me like this I don't know what will happen to me," She said as she ran away to get as far away from him as possible. Seeing her run from him only made the blond more ambitious about catching up to her. He ran after her with his pride as a ninja on the line. All across the village he ran after her and she avoided him using whatever weapons or traps to throw him off but to no avail.

"Man, he is persistent today, why can't I outrun him?" she wondered trying not to let the boy of her desire see the intense blushes she had on her face. After an hour of sheer running Tenten started to slow up from exhaustion. She hid behind a tree in the training grounds.

"Please don't find me Please don't find me PLEASE DON"T FIND ME!" she thought as she saw him arrive at the grounds. She hid well but when she turned around she noticed the blond right next to here breathing very hard. She turned to see a shadow clone he had placed well into the run to confuse her.

"Finally-" he said gasping for air. "Finally caught you" he said in one loud breath. She felt his breath on her face and if not for the running her cheeks would have been blushing much harder.

"u-um hey Naruto, how are you doing?" she said trying to turn her head away from him. He had noticed he action and sat down next to her.

"Nothing everything is good" he had said though a question popped into his head, "why did you run away from me though?" he asked causing Tenten to blush much more and nearly faint. He placed his hand on her head feeling concerned.

"Hey, are you alright? you look a little red." he said making the brunette look him in the eye with a feeling of seriousness. She had kept her feelings for him hidden and thought she could just ignore them. She looked at his physique and blushed more seeing his well toned body and the muscles on his arms knowing about his training with everyones absence. She had noticed these feelings after the chunnin exams took place. She stared in awe as she watched Naruto beat the second best genin in the leaf, Neji. Trying to pass off the feelings as simple admiration she tried to forget it, but his exploits in missions had made the old feelings resurface as she had come to know how much she loved him. Seeing her in a daze Naruto decided to snap her out of her thinking.

"Hello, earth to Tenten are you still with us?" he said making her snap out of her daze.

"Oh s-sorry Naruto I was in some deep thought." she answered trying to called her heart as it was about to come out of her chest.

"That's okay, just wanted to make sure you were okay." he said as he had noticed something different about her. He noticed she looked more beautiful in her ninja outfit. His heart went racing at the thought of her being so cute that he hadn't noticed it before.

Man, I never realized how hot she actually is." he said thinking to himself. As far as he had known she was a good friend and a great comrade. She was one of his precious friends, but seeing her had made him turn her into something different, something more, something he wanted to have, to hold on to, to share his worries and joys with, to protect with his very life. Seeing her there sitting on the tree in the cool breeze made him say the last thing that neither he nor she could have seen coming.

"You are so beautiful, Tenten" he said with his voice low and appealing. She was almost shocked at his statement thinking it was a dream that she didn't want to wake up from. She felt her heart and cheeks blush and beat so much that she thought he was hearing them. She knew she wanted to be with him. She wanted to know everything about him and tell him everything about her, to be his forever and ever, to know how much love she had kept in her heart for him. With blushing face she turned to him.

"D-d-d-do you really think so? she asked uncertain of his answer.

"Yes you are, I have wanted you in my arms, never leaving my side" he said sending tears down here face. These tears were the tears of a miracle or hope that she thought was impossible to obtain. Turning to him with tears still down her eyes.

"I love you, Naruto-kun with all my heart." she said next to him unable to contain the urge to hide her face. Seeing her cover her face he moved closer to her touching her hands and removed them showing her face. With her face exposed he moved closer to her staring into her eyes that seemed to set his heart ablaze. She looked into his blue as the sky eyes with tears in her eyes and a blush as red as a rose. His lips moved closer to hers as they stared at each other. She felt something incredible on her lips, something she had wanted for a very long time, to have his lips on hers as he swung his arms around her holding her tightly in his arms. She felt the strong embrace of his lips and his arms on her as she put her hands on his face keeping them both together. His tongue had moved into her mouth as it found its way to its partner. Sharing a greeting they interacted with each other keeping each others company. They both drew apart for air leaving their mouths to say a temporary goodbye to each other. He faced her with a wide grin that she knew all too well. She knew what was coming but still want to hear his words.

"I love you too, Ten-chan, I will not let you go for you are my most precious person." he said causing her to melt in his arms. She had waited her whole life to hear those words. Now she turned to him with her eyes traced by his cerulean eyes.

"Naruto-kun, I-" she was cu off by him with a finger to her mouth. He turned to her with the question of a lifetime.

"Ten-chan, will you be my girlfriend and go out with me? he asked causing her to place her hands over her mouth with a gasp and answered with tears in her eyes again.

"Yes Naruto-kun, I will be your girlfriend, i love you so much." she said staring at him. He placed hi hands on hers a stood up with her. He answered with a happy and calm smile.

"I love you so much Ten-chan, my heart is yours to take." he said. he continued with his next question to her as she stared wondering what this question was.

"Ten-chan I have saved up a lot of money from my payment on mission I would like to treat you to a fancy restaurant in Konoha as our first date, May I? he asked.

Seeing the look in his eyes, Tenten knew that he was a keeper and he was hers. She answered with a wide smile that lit up his day.

"Yes of course Naruto-kun, when will we go? she asked.

"Tomorrow night" he responded

Alright my love I will go home and check for a proper dress" she said as she left him with a thrill of excitement in her voice.

"Alright my hun, I will go and get my suit also." he answered.

Turning away to go home, he turned around and ran after her. She was shocked to be turned around and have her lips placed back onto his lips in deep affection. after the deep kiss he whispered in her ear.

" See you tomorrow Kanojo." he said causing her to drop to the ground as he left

Out of her daze she had answered.

"See you tomorrow Koibito." she said as she got up and left.

Tomorrow will be most exciting.
