"Miss Hinata, your hands are so smooth..."

Hinata smiled as she brushed a few strands of the man's hair away from his face. "My daughters forced me to take them to the nail salon this morning."

The man smiled at her brightly. "Oh, is that so? Well, one day you'll have to bring them to see me so I can thank them for such a wonderful gift."

The woman giggled softly. "You are too much Sasuke...Sometimes you just..." She stopped gazing off a bit as her hand floated through his ebony hair.

"Sometime I just what?"

Hinata looked at him for a moment before a soft smile graced her face. "Sometimes you just make me wish things. That's all." She sighed before bringing her hands back down to her lap? "Have you remembered anything yet?"


The mother of twins blinked her memories away to look at the tall man who just entered the room. "Yes Shika?"

The man put his hands in his pockets before sighing heavily. "They're all waiting outside. Do you think this is okay? I mean...This will really hurt them..."

Hinata bit her lip as she pushed herself off the wall she was leaning on. "I don't know Shika, but this is what he wants."

The businessman growled in frustration as he scratched his head. "I'm going to get hell for this when we get home..." He looked at Hinata from the corner of his eye. "You ready to see them?"

Hinata took in a deep breath before nodding. "I can do it. For a little while... maybe."

"Okay, I'll go get them. You go tell Sasuke." With that he turned around and walked out the door.

Hinata sighed before walking down the long hallway that led to the rehabilitation room. On one of the blue mats she spotted Sasuke who was doing push ups with a determined look on his face. Hearing her enter the room he did one lat rep before he pushed himself into a sitting position. "They're outside. All of them. Well...Except Ino."

Sasuke looked at her, emotions flying across his face too fast for her to comprehend them. "It's weird..."

Hinata's head tilted to the side a bit in confusion. "What is?"

The man looked at her with an intensity Hinata was unfamiliar with as he stood up and walked towards her. "These feeling is have...They're strong...I love Ino but at the same time I can't get you out of my head."

Hinata smiled softly, sympathetic. "Sauske, what you're feeling is normal for coma patients. The doctors said you might experience confusion for a little while. For me...The things you feel for me are only because you feel connected from your vulnerability—"

Sasuke shook his head. "No, it's not! I know it's not...I just-"

Gasps erupted from the entrance of the rehabilitation room. Hinata and Sauske turned to the newcomers with a look of surprise.

"S-Sasuke? But...But how?!"

Sasuke turned to Sakura, his surprise turning to astonishment. "Wow Sakura, you're huge."

Sakura didn't seem to hear him as tears started falling from her eyes. "You...You're alive?" She took small steps toward him, one hand reached out as if to grab him even though there was at least two and a half meters between them.

Sasuke glanced at Hinata and Shikamaru briefly before nodding to her. "Yeah, Sakura. I'm Alive."

"But how?" Naruto said, eyes wide and fists shaking.

"Nice to see you too..." Sasuke muttered under his breath before running his fingers through his hair. "I was in a coma. I only woke up about three and a half months ago..."

"Why are we just finding out about this then?!" Sakura screeched.

"Hinata and I felt it was in everyone's best interest to hold off on telling you." Shikamaru said as he stepping in front of the group, his arms crossed over his chest as he looked each one of them in the eye. "I know this may be a bit hard to see and hear but Sasuke has not had any recollection of his past up until today. The day the docters told Hinata, and I that he might have never woken up was the day we decided not to say anything and let the world think that Sasuke Uchiha had died. After he woke up with no memories, we decided to coninue on as we were with only more frequent visits in hopes that we could stir something in his head. As you can see, it may have taken some time...however we did bring Sasuke back to you all."

They all stared at the three of them before Sakura pushed past Shikamaru and started hobbling to the pair. Everyone knew how much Sakura losed Sasuke before he "died" and thought it was normal to see her going to him. However, no one suspected that she would through a punch right into Hinata's left cheek. Immediately three figures leaped forward, two to pull back Sakura and one to catch Hinata as she started to fall back. "You fucking bitch! Why did you keep him from me?!

"Are you okay?" Sasuke whispered in Hinata's ear as he cradled her face in one of his hands.

Hinata nodded as she stood back up on her own before ducting herself off. "I'm fine."

"Who gave you the right huh?! You just want everything don't you you spoiled little brat! Why don't you stop praying on other peoples left overs you filthy whore!" Sakura screamed.

"Shut up Sakura, you need to calm down."

"Shikamaru's right, this isn't good for the babies..." Naruto soothed. Sakura stopped moving, her breathing heavy as she glared at the now injured woman. Naruto wrapped his arms around her and started rocking her back and forth. Hinata looked away from the two of them, tears stinging her eyes.

Sighs echoed from behind the pair as Kiba, Choji, Temari, Garra and Shino shook their heads sadly.

Sasuke turned to look back at the group of people, rage in his eyes. "What the fuck happened when I was out?!"

A/N: Wow, it's been a while hasn't it? It's my spring break so I'm trying to get as much writing done as possible with both ADS and LCCT as well as starting the out lines on a few more fanfiction that seemed to have erupted from my head during the beginning of this semester. Anyway, hope you enjoyed the chapter, Review if you love me!
