Author Note: This is the last installment of Switched Situations and it's pretty short… sorry but hey! I finished another story. Cheers for Kia!
Chapter 16 – Manageably Normal
They rushed the blonde to the hospital. Shikamaru was freaking out. Hinata looked around someone was missing. Naruto walked up to her. "I tried Hinata…"
She giggled and hugged him. "Thank you so much, Naruto."
He chuckled and rubbed his unmarked skin. "Blessing and a curse!"
She nodded. "Where is…" She trailed off.
Naruto grabbed her shoulders. "Do you really have to ask?"
She looked at him to the waiting room. "Tell Ino I'll be back…"
He nodded. "Hurry…" She turned. "Oh and Hinata…" She looked at him once more. He put up his thumbs. "Don't take no for an answer, okay?" She nodded quickly and disappeared.
He uprooted another weed and wiped his brow. "Are you serious?!" He heard a familiar voice behind him. He put his shovel down and wiped off his dirty hands. He thought it was time to remodel the old Uchiha compound. It would busy his mind from the wedding.
"What?" He looked at her. He had to admit she did look pretty scary. Her dress was ripped and dirty at the bottom. Her hair was limp down her back. Her makeup was a mess. And that frown…
"You weren't going to bust in!?" She threw her arms in the air.
"Why should I? You wanted this." She took note of his outfit. He was in all black again.
"It wasn't an illusion…was it?"
He shrugged. "Does it matter? You're a married woman now." He turned back.
"No!" She clenched her fist. "Tsunade stalled and Naruto kept cutting his arm and Ino went into labor and…and… and I was waiting on you!" She yelled.
He watched her fuming stance before getting on his knees going back to the garden. "I'm respecting your wishes"
"You never have before!" She wiped her face. "Why s-start now?"
He pulled out another weed. "Hinata, go do something… go be happy."
"How could you just let me go through with it?" She walked up to his sitting form.
He stood up leaving almost no room between them. "Hinata, I told you to fight! I didn't want you to do it! I asked you to fight!" She flinched feeling his breath tickling her face.
"What about you!? You didn't fight for me!" She pushed him back.
He frowned. "Should I?"
She nodded let tears flow freely down her already dirty face. "YES!"
"You make me happy, you fucking idiot!" He grabbed her face. She winced at the force behind his hands.
She hiccupped. "You're so mean!"
He frowned. "You make me this way…" He pressed his forehead to hers. "You're so stupid."
She wrapped her arms around him. "Sasuke," He grunted. She looked behind him. "You suck at gardening…" He scoffed and tightened his hold on her. "You suck at a lot of stuff…"
"I know." He muttered.
"You're so mean to me."
"I'm sorry." He nodded.
"And you're never really sorry for anything."
He paused and sighed. "You're right."
"A-And you're really rough with me when… when we-" He chuckled making her blush. "You bruise me a lot even on accident…" She whispered.
He stroked her head. "I'm sorry…" He couldn't help the knowing smirk that was resting on his lips.
She giggled. "You're not."
"You're right." He replied.
"I care about you a lot."
"More than Naruto?"
She nodded. "More than I did with Naruto…" She confirmed. "Even after we…" She trailed off cursing herself mentally.
He pulled back. "What did you do?"
She smiled and leaned to kiss him. He didn't think twice about kissing her back. He put an arm around her and pulling her body closer. She squeaked feeling his hand travel down her back. "Sasuke, Ino… she's – baby!"
He frowned. "Fine…" She turned only for him to grab her. "You're mine now, not that guy's or your father's… got it?"
She snatched away from him smiling before walking into the compound again.
Ino sighed holding her baby boy. "He is adorable!" Sakura cooed. "Doesn't look a thing like his mooommmy!"
Ino frowned. "Shut up! Don't be mad someone wanted to reproduce with me."
Shikamaru took his son. "Be prepare, dude this is 24/7."
The door opened revealing Hinata in baggy pants with a matching baggy shirt with an Uchiha crest on the back. She smiled. "Where is he?" Ino pointed to Shikamaru. "What's his name?"
Ino smiled. "Kirito Nara!"
He had a tuff of dark hair and Ino's eyes. Hinata smiled at the bundle. "He is so cute."
"Thank you… but wh-"
Sasuke walked in with Naruto trailing behind him. "You had a kid, right?" She nodded. "Cool." She shook her head. Sasuke was a strange character but being on his team taught her how to decipher what he was trying to say.
"Thank you, Sasuke."
He nodded before grabbing Hinata's hand. Everyone looked at the intertwined limbs. Hinata blushed and lifted up their hands. The room filled with happy cheer until Kirito started crying then they were kicked out. Sakura smiled. "I'm happy for you two!" She paused. "How are you going to break this to your father?"
Hinata looked at the onyx eyed man. "I don't know…" She smiled. "But… I'll figure out something."
He scoffed pulling her closer. "WE," He corrected. "We will figure out something."
She nodded. "We…" She smiled. They had walked in each other's shoes, felt what the other person felt and experienced love in it most literary form. They accepted the fact that he was the only person out there for her and if he wasn't… she didn't want the other guy. All she needed was right here all they had to do was well… switch situations.
Three Months Later
"So how do you feel?" Sakura tapped the pen against her chin thoughtfully. "Everything… you know, normal?"
Hinata scratched her forehead. "Define normal."
The pink haired nurse giggled. "Any pains that aren't the usual?"
Hinata shook her head. "Everything is…normal, I suppose."
Sakura wasn't convinced by any means. "Hinata, are you telling me the truth? Any heart troubles?"
She shook her head. "Honestly, I am in perfect health." She crossed her arms. "I don't think I should be treated like a testing animal."
She sighed. "Well, it's my job."
Hinata huffed and got off the table. "So, you are pretty grumpy. How are you and Naruto?" Sakura broke her pen having ink splatter all over the paper. "Ooo…" She giggled.
She wiped her hand on her apron. "That's hardly important."
She grinned. "When it's me and Sasuke then it is fine to meddle but when it's you…"
Sakura grumbled. "Get out of my office."
Hinata smiled and obeyed. She closed the door only to be pushed into the wall. She winced opening her eyes to see onyx ones staring back at her. "Is this necessary?"
He stepped back. "You said be spontaneous."
She rubbed her aching back. "Spontaneous not abusive."
He rolled his eyes. "How was your little check-up?"
She shrugged. "The same for the past three months," She noticed that their hands with intertwined. She smiled. "So do you think it's broken?" He gave her a questioning look. "The rod… I mean…"
He looked over at her. "Not broken… just manageable."
She could deal with manageable. She still felt the effects… the minor side effects off breaking the connection like sometimes his emotions would influence her to the same mood or her heart beat would distract him from concentrating. Other than that everything was normal.
They were normal… for the most part.
"Hey, Hyuuga." She looked over at him and suddenly they were by the riverbank.
"Ehh…" She touched her head still feeling dizzy from transporting.
He scoffed. "You should be used to that by now," She mocked him quietly. He paused. "Don't you get tired of being called a Hyuuga?"
She looked up at him. After she told her father about her decision, he immediately disowned her on the spot. Really, it was heartbreaking… if she really cared. He stood there waiting for tears that never came. Instead of all the dramatics that he was expecting, she hugged him.
She couldn't remember the last time they openly hugged each other but she caved after many years. She squeezed him and muttered her thanks before leaving the compound. He stood there dumbfounded at her actions and reasoning behind them.
She waved at her sister and cousin.
"I'm not really a Hyuuga anymore…" She rubbed her arm.
He nodded and handed her a scroll. "This will help." She looked at him to the scroll. She slowly took the scroll afraid it would explode in her face. She tore the sticker and unrolled it. He watched in amusement as her face soured then brightened.
His bloodied fingerprint was stamped by this name.
He put his hands in his pockets. "Wanna be an Uchiha?"
She looked up at him. "This is a marriage scroll!" She waved it in his face causing him to take a step back.
"I know… I signed it." She shook her head completely making him take a step back. "Again?" He hissed. Was she really rejecting him AGAIN!
Her eyes widened. "N-No… I mean – yes! I…" She took a deep breath. "This is you being spontaneous?"
He leaned against the tree with his arms crossed. She smiled at him as he nodded coolly. "Yes, it is."
She wrapped her arms around him. "I…' She took a deep breath. "I…"
He groaned. "Would you fucking say it? Just say it." He snatched the scroll back. "You're not marrying me if you can't say three words."
"Sasuke, stop it!"
"Not the words I'm looking for." He crossed his arms. "How are you going to marry me if you can't say you love me?"
She frowned and crossed her arms. "I don't have to."
His face dropped. "Say it… that's an order."
She ran a hand through her hair. "You know I do."
"Bullshit, you could be using me for bomb sex." He grumbled. She took the scroll gently out of his hand. Bringing her thumb up to her lips and biting down, she placed her blood on the scroll. It went up in smoke. He was sitting against the tree bark. "This marriage is based on bullshit." He growled suppressing a smirk.
She sat between his legs before he wrapped his arms around her. "You're such a girl, Sasuke."
He scoffed. "I've been in a girl's body and went through a period. It sticks," He paused and she turned to face him. "And matter of fac-" She pressed her lips to his mumbling how he was talking too much again. He grunted at that pulling her closer.
"I… I love you." She smiled against his smirking lips.
Sasuke heard a ruffling sound and told Hinata to follow him. Naruto was in the clearing with Sakura. "Look Sakura-chan, I learned a new jutsu!"
She looked over lazily, "Whatever Naruto…" as he started the hand signs. Sasuke and Hinata's eyes widened as he completed the last of the familiar signs.
They ran towards them. "Naruto NOOO!"
