I do not own Naruto.
A/N This is my very first fanfic. Please Review!
17 year old Kiba Inuzuka woke up that morning with the strange feeling that he was supposed to be somewhere. He rolled out of bed and almost knocked Akamaru off the edge. He ran a hand through his wild brown hair and stretched. He looked over at the clock and it hit him. He had promised Hinata and Shino to train with them that day. He quickly dressed and almost killed himself (and Akamaru) in the process of moving so fast. He flew down the stairs and out the door. Tsume and Hana Inuzuka stood there in surprise as they saw him race through the door. They glanced at each other in surprise before laughing and continuing on with their business.
Kiba raced towards the clearing in the forest where they had planned to meet, Akamaru following close behind. He almost ran past their meeting spot but skidded to a halt and he ran right into a startled Shino.
"Ow…." Shino said as he pushed Kiba off of him.
"Heh, sorry Shino, where's Hinata?" Kiba looked around the clearing, expecting to see Hinata.
"She isn't here yet." Shino replied annoyed. He flicked the dirt off from his shoulders.
"What? But Hinata is always on time…" He raised his eyebrows in surprise.
"And you're always late."
"Can't argue with that."
Kiba paused for a minute. Hinata wasn't the type to blow off training. Where could she be?
"Should we go look for her?" Kiba asked with slight worry in his voice.
"Hinata can take care of herself, she probably got sidetracked."
"I guess…" He knew that Hinata was strong but that didn't stop him from wanting to make sure she was safe.
They started training without her. After a good hour of training and with still no sign of Hinata, Kiba stopped.
"You're not tired already are you?" Shino teased.
"Of course not! You do realize that Hinata never showed up right?"
"Well yes but-" Kiba cut Shino off.
"But what! Something must be up. I'm going to go see if Neji knows where she is."
Kiba took off without a second thought. He couldn't shake the feeling that something was wrong. It was just too weird. Even if Hinata had just gotten sidetracked, it sure was taking a long time. It was midafternoon when he reached the Hyuuga's home. He saw Neji training out in the yard.
"Hey Neji!" Kiba shouted.
Neji looked over. "What do you want?" he said coolly
Kiba ignored his attitude. "Have you seen Hinata lately?"
"No why? I thought she was training with you."
"She never showed up."
"Hmm." Neji's brow creased.
"I said-" Kiba started before being cut off by Neji.
"I know what you said!"
"Where is Hinata?" Kiba asked more angrily this time.
"I don't know." Neji replied blankly.
"What do you mean you don't know? Where is her father?" Kiba's voice began to get louder.
"Lord Hiashi is inside, but I wouldn't bother him if I were you."
"Why not? Doesn't he care about Hinata?"
"Of course he does. He just doesn't care for you."
"Well to be honest I've never really been a fan of him either." Kiba growled.
And with that Kiba went to the front door of the house and pounded on the door. He was about to pound on the door again when Hiashi swung the door open. When he saw Kiba he scowled.
"What are you doing here Inuzuka?" His mouth curved downward as he continued to glare at Kiba.
"I'm looking for Hinata." Kiba returned his fierce glare.
"She's not here. She is supposed to be training with you."
"Well she never showed up."
"How unfortunate. Perhaps she has better things to do than waste her time with you."
Akamaru started to growl, but Kiba shot him a warning look. He wasn't going to waste his time arguing with Hinata's father. "If you won't help look for her then I'll look for her by myself." And with that he took off.
