"And we're back!" Called a camera man that I could not see. Once again the crowd applauded and cheered as Yuki grinned at the camera.
"Welcome back and here we continue with the story of how Naruto Uzumaki, Japan's number one hot bachelor, fell in love" She said as she looked into the camera and then she turned to me.
"So, Naruto" She hesitated looking down at her flash cards. "What happened after that day?" She asked. "You obviously saw her again"
I chuckled and made slightly shifted. "Yes I saw her"
"Well… how did it happen?" She asked.
I chuckle once again and looked down at my hands. For the second time on the same night I find myself traveling back in time.
It was July 28, 2010.
The summer heat had become almost unbearable but even with the heat I kept on going by the track. Always at the same time as I come that day when I met her. Sometime even early but she would never come by.
I had almost given up hope of ever see her again. Afraid I had said something wrong, making her change her running schedule, or worst change track when I found her that morning.
I came in early like I had done for the last couple of week when I saw her running. I got off the car and began to stretch, pretending that I hadn't been stalking her for the last couple of weeks.
She made one round when she finally notice me. Her eyes quickly winded and pale cheeks suddenly went pink."Hey" She said shyly as she stopped next to me.
"Hi" I smiled back. We stood in silence, not really sure what to say. "You were gone for a long time" I finally blurted out.
Her cheeks flushed. "My ankle" She said extending her right leg. "I couldn't run for a while"
"Oh… right" I chuckled as I scratched the back of my neck."Well, are you feeling better?" I asked.
"Yes, thank you for asking" She giggled. "So, Were you looking for me for a reason?" She asked.
"Nothing particular, really" I said. "I just forgot to ask for your number"
"What number?" She asked, her eyes wide with surprise.
"Your phone number of course" I laughed making her blush even more.
"Why?" She asked.
"So I can call you up" I said innocently.
"But… you are you and I'm me" She said as she looked down at her hands.
"What is that suppose to mean?" I asked. I tried for to look at me in the eyes but she kept avoiding mine.
"Look I don't think this is a good idea" She said as she passed me.
"At least tell me your name" I said a spun around to meet with her eyes. She smiled softly at me before answering. "Hinata Hyuga"
And with that she left.
"So from the beginning she knew you guys were… different" Yuki hesitated as I blink myself back to reality.
"There was no need to though. I didn't see any difference" I answered receiving an 'awww' from the public.
"I see" Yuki smiled her fake smile. "So how did you meet her after that?" She asked.
I chuckled. "Well, that same day I ask my manager to do anything in his power to find out everything about her"
The crowed chuckled, some laugh but mostly everyone was uncomfortable. "So you stalked her?" Yuki asked.
I laughed. "I guess you could see it that way" I fixed my sleeves. "I really wanted to see her again. I always go through what I set my mind on"
Yuki laughed and shook her head. "So, what did you find out?" She asked.
"I found out she was a year younger than me. She was studying culinary arts and working in a bakery not so far from the track" I said.
"So, what did you do?" She asked.
"I went to her university" I laughed. "It was the first time I saw her in her chef informed. I was just speechless"
"How so?" Yuki asked.
"Well, it's not that I have a fetish for chef or anything. In reality chef coat make everyone seem twice as big as they really are but in her, it look amazing. Like it suited her" I smiled.
For the first time I saw Yuki really smile. "I guess that is love for ya"
I chuckled. "I guess you are right"
"So, what happened when she saw you there?" She asked.
"You know I remember that day very clearly" I said reminiscing . "She had just come out of one of her cooking laboratories and had come out smelling like curry and meat"
"Very exotic" Yuki laughed along the crowd.
"Very" I joked and once again I left the studio and went back in time to that moment.
"Oh my god! Is that Naruto Uzumaki?" Some random girl yelled out of nowhere and before I knew it every eye and girl were on me.
A I smiled, sigh and hug every girl around, my eye never left hers. She was frozen in the front door, staring back at me awe and confused.
"Excuse me. I'm here in a important matter" To the girls that surrounded me and I made my way to her.
"What are you doing here?" She stammered.
"I came to ask you out again" I answered. "And I won't take no for an answer" I smirked.
She stayed in silence until her lips broke in a smile. "You are damaged, you know that?" She said with a giggle.
"So I've been told" I chuckled.
"Fine, one date" She smiled. "But if I don't enjoy it then it will all be in the past" She warned.
"Ok " I agreed. "Not that you won't enjoy it"
We both laughed at my comment, our eyes still fixed on each other. "Tomorrow 8 o clock. I'll see on the track" I said and with that I left.
"Very interesting" Said Yuki taking me away from my memories. "Now let's go to comertials but don't change that channel because next we will find out how did that date went"
