In this story Hitsugaya doesn't come into the story for 5 chapters but all the chapters are about as long as this one and I'm planning on making this story really long. Please enjoy!
Only In Death I Get a Second Chance
"So what is it you wanted to tell me Hinata-chan?" His voice was curious and cheerful, like it always is when he asks a question.
That's one of the things I've always admired him for, loved him for.
"I-I-I w-wan-wanted" damn this stutter. It always comes at the worst possible moments. He looks at me curiously as my voice stopped working.
My face goes a deep red as he stares at me. It felt like he can see right through me; as if his eyes will penetrate my soul. His ocean blue eyes, so soft and caring.
Sometimes I have to remind myself of all the pain behind them. The sorrow and remorse he hides so well. I want to comfort him; tell him I understand. But I'm frozen in place, my confession lost in my dry throat.
I want to say it, but my voice is lost.
He speaks first in a loud cheerful voice, oblivious to the words I can't find. "What is it Hinata-kun, I'm all ears." And as if on cue my famous blush depends to a shade that would put Gaara's hair to shame.
It was amazing how fasts I find my voice. I had to; I had to find my voice.
"Naruto" I said quickly panic racing through ever bone in my body. I feel chakra. Strong chakra, weird chakra. So strange, it makes me want to run. Every bone in my body screams at me to run. But I speak, foolishly I speak, I should have just grabbed Naruto and ran as fast as we could. But instead I speak, so quietly I'm surprised he can even hear me.
"Someone's here, someone dangerous." He understands instantly and frowns. "Were" he says now completely aware of the strong presence of another person: no not a person, definitely not a person.
"Find it" he said quietly, determined.
I quickly activate my Byakugan and look into the trees. He follows my lead and looks in the opposite direction.
After a few minutes he turns to me and asks "find anything."
"Not yet" I yell back as I turn my head to look at him.
Then I see it, standing right in front of Naruto. It was huge; it was a monster by all counts of the word. It had a long tail and on its face it wore a mask similar to the ones some of the ninjas wear.
Its mouth moved as if it was speaking but I heard no noise.
It smiles an evil smile and stares for a second at my beloved Naruto,
I could see the intent to kill in its eyes.
It slowly lifts its hand, the sword like nails glistening in the sunlight.
My body moves on instinct.
Disclaimer: I'm leaving with a cliffhanger. If you want me to add the next chapter soon you will have to comment.
