Only In Death I Get A Second Chance

By Megan Martin

Drama / Romance

Chapter 1

Disclaimer: Artwork for this story found at I own nothing, but if I did the stories would have involved one another long ago.

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.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel.

Ashley Stryker: So I'm writing this review, keeping in mind that this is a work in progress and it's part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), so my "deeper" critiques will be saved until it's all finished up.+ Chapter One: A stewardess would not talk to anyone quite like that, particularly a clear minor...

I am a budding writer myself and to read this- to FEEL this- reminded me of why I am honoured to have this passion and drive for a craft that is just so raw and beautiful.

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...
