When she did so, Hinata came face-to-face with her cousin Neji.
"Oh....hello Nii-san" she said, bowing to her cousin. Neji's eyes, while usually hard and pierceing, seemed to soften slightly but did not betray his reason for being at his cousin's door."There is someone here to see you Hinata-sama.
Hinata paused for a second and recalled how this wonderful day had come about.'Two months...' Hinata thought glumly, laying on her bed 'Two months and he hasn't said anything to me about how he feels.' The Hyuga heir rolled over onto her side.As the team 7 approached the village a sigh of relief came from Sasuke, Sakura, and Naruto."Well, I am going to report to Lady Hokage. " Said Kakashi as he vanished leaving a trail of leaves blowing in the wind."You don't have to tell me twice." Exclaimed Naruto as he sprinted towards the Ichiraku Ramen Bar.Sakura wondered what she would do, so she asked Sasuke if he wants to go on a date with her.The young woman couldn't believe how her cousin had just acted. Finally, something seemed to pop into Naruto's mind. Suddenly, Naruto reached out and took hold of her hand. Finally, they came to a spot atop the Hokage monument and Naruto ceased walking.'He hasn't behaved like that since before Naruto-kun beat him in the Chunin exam finals three years ago' she thought, 'did I do something to upset him? "Would...would you like to go for a walk with me, Hinata? It took all her will power not to pass out right there. The two made their way out of the Hyuga compound and into the forest that had survived Pein's assault on the village. "This is my favorite spot in the village" Naruto said softly. " she asked, pooling her remaining confidence and resolve. "Ye-yes I do Naruto-kun...." she trailed off."Yes" Hinata said as she hiccuped "I meant it with all my heart...." Tears continued to pour from her eyes until she felt a hand softly lift her head up.
