Chapter 1: To break a news
"Neji, there's an urgent matter I must discuss with you."
The young Hyuga prodigy looked up at his uncle with a calm and thoughtful face.
Hyashi Hyuga was the current head of the most prestigious clan in the Hidden Leaf Village. He must also be a busy man. And while they had been on a much better term in recent years, the times when they could talk had been rare.
Neji was intrigued.
"Come. It may be better for us to talk in a more proper setting." – Hyashi turned and walked away with his hands tucked in his sleeves, expecting his nephew to follow.
Neji went without question. It must be an important business related to the clan. Nothing else would explain the serious complexion the head of clan wore.
But then, could it be related to Hinata-sama? Neji wondered. His mind traced back to the last time he met his shy cousin, and realized it was only yesterday. Hinata seemed fine. Nothing grave should have happened to her.
Neji could only make guesses as he was lead to Hyashi's private office. There he was beckoned to sit on a tatami mat, directly face-to-face with the head of the Hyuga.
Neji took his seat quietly, eyes not missing a single of the senior man's movements and expressions, before the door slid shut behind him
Thank you for showing interest in this story :) As you know, this story features Neji as the main character and hero. Personally, I find (*SPOILERS) Neji's death one of the most needless deaths in anime and manga history. It broke fans' hearts all across the world. Moreover, it seems that Kishimoto-sensei did it simply for the sake of having more character deaths. I wanted to see more Neji, that's why this story is born.
