Re: Naruto Fan Fiction Thread!!
*Scene opens up several days after the Kiri villagers landed in Port City. Word has spread about what has happened at Iwagakure. Gaara and Temari stayed in Konoha upon learning of the occurrences in Kiri and Iwa. Ao, along with Tsunade and Gaara, decided on another summit, this time to be held in Konoha, because of the protection of the gods Suijin, Raijin, and Izanagi. Naruto and Fujin have yet to resurface anywhere. Ao has learned that the Mizukage is well, but is resting after her fight. Karin and Rina are traveling to the Whirlpool country to rendezvous with the Mizukage and her group. The panel focuses on Hinata walking into her apartment with a handful of groceries. Her face shows how visibly upset she is.*
Hinata in thought: I know you’re ok. I just miss you *thought bubble of Naruto*. But I must be strong. I think you’ll like what I’ve learned these last few days.
*There is a knock at the door. Hinata goes to open it. As she opens the door she is greeted by two familiar faces. In walks Shino and Kiba.*
Shino: How are you holding up Hinata?
Hinata: I’m doing fine.
Kiba: Yeah, well, I can’t get that damn woman out of my mind.
Hinata: Oh… you finally found a woman that will tolerate you?
Kiba: Ha, Ha. But I finally got her name about a week ago, it’s Benten.
Shino: Ok, ok, shut up about her.
Kiba: But she’s so hot, and her long red hair…
Hinata blushing: How funny that a redhead is the one who would tame you.
Kiba: I’m not tamed!
Shino: Yes you are. You haven’t flirted with another woman since you’ve been with her.
Kiba: That’s no… Holy Shit! You’re right! And she hasn’t been here in a week. *gets a worried look* Do you think she’s left me… or worse, is with another man?
Shino chuckling: I wouldn’t blame her. I mean… well… *nods to Hinata* We know how you are.
Kiba: Ah shut up you two.
*Hinata and Shino laugh.*
Kiba: Besides, *looking at Shino* Hinata has Naruto, I’ve found a woman, what about you?
Shino slouches: I… err…. haven’t found one yet.
*Hinata and Kiba laughs.*
Shino: Anyways, we’re heading over to Kurenai-sensei’s later. Care to join?
Hinata: I’d like to, but I have plans.
Kiba: Really? Sensei tells us that Sieta has been waiting to see you for some time now.
Hinata straight-faced: I can’t. I told you, I have plans.
Kiba: Ok, ok. If you need anything, seriously, don’t hesitate to call us.
*Both Kiba and Shino give Hinata a hug and leave her apartment as Hinata finishes putting away her groceries. The scene follows Kiba and Shino.*
Shino: So, what do you think she is up to?
Kiba: She’s been married to Naruto for a couple of years now. He’s worn off on her. We’ll keep an eye on her.
Shino: I feel bad for Sieta. She really has been waiting to see her.
*Scene switches back to Hinata. She walks into the bedroom, opens a drawer and pulls out a kunai, shaped like Minato’s kunais. The panel zooms in on her face, showing a smile. The next second, Hinata is gone. The scene switches to a cliff, with both Naruto and Fujin standing on the edge, looking out towards the ocean.*
Fujin: While your progress is remarkable, you still have much to learn.
Naruto: Aye. But I need a break.
Fujin: You… need a break?
Naruto: Well, not really. But…
Fujin: Speak no more. I understand. Let’s finish training today, and then we will return. I should apologize to her as well.
Naruto: Hinata is my wife, but she is also one of the best shinobi in Konoha. She understands.
Fujin: But still, just because I am a god, doesn’t mean that I haven’t loved before.
Fujin: She was a human, Shunto Yokumo. She wouldn’t let me give up my godhood to be with her.
Naruto: How long ago…
Fujin: In your time, long ago, but it seems just like yesteryear for me. Naruto pay attention to your woman. Care for her. Love her. Don’t ever let her feel like she is unloved or unappreciated.
Fujin: Now back to training.
*Naruto takes a battle stance facing the ocean. He takes his right hand, in a pitching motion with an open palm, and thrusts it forward infront of him. The ocean is split to where the ocean floor is now visible, but still covered by water.*
