Hinata stood quietly as she used her 64-Palm-Protection on a training dummy, blasting it to smithereens with her chakra. Her arms moved in a fury, never pausing, never stopping. Her eyes were closed in deep concentration. She stopped and opened her eyes. She looked at what once was a training dummy and at the newly created crater she was standing in. You would think the Hyuga girl would be delighted. However, she sighed and buried her face in her hands for a brief moment. She grabbed her long hair and shook it out. She turned to walk home before her father got mad at her. She didn't have her Byakugan activated, so she didn't notice him watching her.
Naruto watched Hinata walk away. He recently returned to Konoha and he came here to train, but this was the first time he'd seen Hinata since he left. He was amazed at her improvement in strength since he left. He watched her train and was surprised to see her seem so disappointed. He was thankful she didn't see him, but he realized she didn't have her Byakugan activated. After Hinata had walked away about twenty yards Naruto chose to follow her. He liked the girl more than he realized and he really liked how she had changed. He loved how strong she had gotten and was proud of his great friend. What he really loved about her was how she had physically changed. He loved her hair, her height, her legs and her hips. He also loved how much her
chest cavity had grown, he'd been spending too much time with Ero-sennin.
Hinata heard a noise when Naruto carelessly stepped on and snapped a stick. She continued to walk but activated her Byakugan. She gasped when she noticed it was Naruto following her. She kept walking without giving any notice that she saw him. She made it home and walked inside her house. She went into her lavender bedroom and closed the lavender curtains before she changed into a purple nightgown. When she finished she opened the curtains and the window. She crawled into bed.
"Good night, Naruto-kun," Hinata said loud enough for Naruto to hear and no one else in her house. "And welcome back." Naruto was shocked that she'd seen him, been bold enough to call him out on it and grown out of her stuttering. First Naruto thought of leaving, but then another idea popped into his head. He slipped into her room and silently closed her window. Hinata was half conscious when Naruto's strong arms wrapped around her waist. Her eyes snapped open.
"Good night, Hinata-chan." Naruto whispered seductively into Hinata's ear. Her eyes widened.
"N-N-Na-Na-Naruto-k-kun!! W-what are y-you d-doing?!" Hinata stuttered. Just when she had gotten that under control, too!
"Can't I get that 'welcome home' in another form, Hinata-chan?" Naruto whispered. Hinata's cheeks got so red her face beamed like a red nightlight in the near pitch blackness of the night.
"Come on, Hinata-chan." Hinata had had her back to Naruto and rolled over. She stared into his blue eyes quizzically. She had to admit he did look good. He lost all of his baby fat and he grew about a foot in height. He had gotten pretty muscular too. She could tell his training had really paid off. However none of this had broken her resolve to tell him what was on her mind.
"Naruto-kun, why now?" she asked him. Before he could ask her what she meant she continued. "I've liked you since we were kids as more than friends. All you've ever thought of me as is a friend. You left for two years and this is the first I've seen you since then. You've never shown any interest in me. You get back and you watch me train, follow me home and sneak into my bed? Why? Why now?"
"Hinata-chan, I never realized I like you until now," he responded. "Seeing you again, as stunning as you are by the way, watching you train, seeing how much stronger you've gotten and how much bolder you've gotten." Hinata sat up and Naruto did too.
"Naruto-kun, do you want to be with me?"
"Yes, I really do, Hinata-chan."
"Well that's good." Naruto leaned in and kissed Hinata. She kissed him back. At first, it was slow and soft, but began to heat up. Naruto and Hinata fell over, Naruto on top of Hinata. Before it went any farther, Hinata pushed Naruto off of her. This time, he looked at her quizzically. "Naruto-kun, I really want to be with you, but right now, this is too fast. When the time comes for me to lose it, you are the one I want to lose it to, but not now. I mean, you only like me. I love you, Naruto-kun." Naruto was taken aback for a moment, but then regained his composure.
"Hinata-chan! I never said that I didn't love you! I was scared to say it because I was worried you wouldn't love me back, but you do and I'm so happy!" Hinata smiled.
"Me too. But I still want to take it slow. I love you Naruto-kun but I'm not ready for that. I mean you haven't even" Hinata was interrupted by a knock at her bedroom door.
"Hinata-sama," the voice of her cousin, Neji, started. "Are you okay? I thought I heard some noises."
"Yes, Neji-niisan, I'm fine."
"Are you sure?"
"Yes, now could you please return to your own room? I'm trying to sleep."
"Yes, Hinata-sama." Hinata waited for Neji's footsteps to fade before she continued.
"Anyway, Naruto-kun," Hinata started. "We're moving too fast. I mean, you haven't even asked me o-on a d-date yet, and you snuck into my bedroom. I mean, where do we go from here? I don't know what to do now."
"Hinata-chan, do you m-maybe
" Naruto trailed off. Hinata's eyes gave him the courage to keep going. "D-do you m-maybe wanna g-go out with me o-on Friday?" Hinata placed her right hand on Naruto's cheek. She kissed him.
"I would love that, pick me up at 6:00. Now can you please go home?" Hinata yawned. "I really need some sleep."
"I can't sleep here?" he teased.
"Nope, now get out." Naruto did as he was told, closing the window on his way out. Hinata waited until she couldn't see Naruto before she laid back down. As she began to drift off she murmured to herself: "I'm finally going out with Naruto." And she fell asleep.
