The Brighter The Light, The Darker The Shadow


Age Rating:

Chapter 1

Welcome everyone. I'm glad you're reading this story.

Anyway, this is a brand new plot bunny that's been bouncing around my head. Decided I was sick of seeing Hinata be so meek and run over so I created a version of her that would take revenge on her tormentors.

Enjoy! :)

Summary: People can only bend so far before they break. When the people she loves finally succeed in breaking Hinata, She moves away. When she comes back, Will the people of Konoha be able to survive the monster they have created?

You know what they say...

The Brighter the Light, the Darker the Shadow

Eyes filled with twisted amusement stared down at their prey. How dare she defile the halls of their school, where only the best of the best were allowed? Who cares if she was a Hyuuga, she was worthless.

Even her family agreed. Her mother didn't live with them and had remarried some famous billionaire, her father was deeply disappointed in her and hated her. She had no friends and her older cousin and younger twin sister were a million times better than her in every way.

Why was she allowed to live? It was just so unfair to her.

Her cousin, the ever popular and handsome Neji, and her sister, the beautiful and charming Hanabi, and their friends, nicknamed The Royalty of Konoha High, circled poor Hinata Hyuuga like hungry vultures, picking at her every weakness.

"Ha, No wonder father hates you." Hanabi said, a gleam of satisfaction in her dull white eyes as she watched her hated sister trembling.

"You're stupid, ugly, weak, and useless."

Neji picked up where she left off.

"Look at your stupid short hair in its ugly boyish cut, your bug eyes, and your meek personality. Who would want something so weak? You have money, yet you couldn't find anything that would fit." He sneered sarcastically at her baggy clothes.

"How pathetic" Ten Ten chimed in.

Sakura and Ino kicked her down the hall while the school watched and laughed cruelly. No one tried to help her and no teachers were in sight. She was all alone.

Naruto spotted two envelopes that that had fallen out of Hinata's book bag. His and Sasuke's name were on them. He handed Sasuke's to him and they opened them.

As they read them, their eyes widened in disgust. They turned to look at each other, thoughts mirroring the others. This pathetic worm loved them...disgusting.

Hinata's head snapped up and her eyes widened impossibly when she heard the tear of an envelope being opened. She prayed that it wasn't what she thought it was.

Her heart jerked in terror when she saw what the source of the sound was. How did they get that?

She watched in horror as they took turns reading out her love letters to the whole school to the others amusement.

They turned to sneer at her, disgust and horror wafting from their very beings.

"As if we could ever love an ugly thing such as you. In your dreams maybe." Sasuke said

"Yea, we already have the perfect girls." Naruto followed.

They turned to kiss their girlfriends. Sasuke kissing Sakura and Naruto Hanabi.

Hinata heard the laughter of the crowd growing louder and louder until it blocked out everything else. There was just the loud mocking laughter.

The room spun as she took in everything around her. The mocking faces, amused smirks, her things spread over the entrance hallway, the so-called "Royalty" and her main tormentors.

Neji and TenTen, Sasuke and Sakura, Naruto and Hanabi, Kiba and Ino, Shikamaru and Temari.

Her eyes took it all in, imprinting this time and the faces she was looking at in her brain.

She felt something inside her break as she stood up and gathered her things. She ignored the curious and hateful glances as she picked up the last of her things and brushed past Neji who recoiled to avoid being touched by "filth." She had pushed the entrance door when Kiba's gravelly voice stopped her.

"And where do you think you're going?"

She almost didn't dignify his question with a response. Without turning around, she said simply "Home" before letting the door slam after her.

When Hinata walked into the Hyuuga Mansion an hour after school had officially ended, for everybody else anyway, she was greeted with the sight of a maid. She winced, knowing the school must have called Hiashi about her skipping half the day.

The maid's cool eyes was filled of disapproval at Hinata for showing her emotions but she delivered the message she had to give.

"Lord Hiashi request your presence in his study right now."

"Yes, thank you."

Entering her father's study, she saw the man that had partly caused her to be the non-confident meek young girl she was with his overbearing attitude. He sat behind his desk, glaring coldly at her.

She shuffled awkwardly as she saw the disappointment in his eyes grow until she felt like she was drowning in it.

"Sit down" He sighed.

Seeing her in her chair fidgeting, he snapped at her.

"Stop moving and Keep still! You are 14 and the Hyuuga heiress. Act like one, and not the meek timid thing you are now."

She froze, and he eyed her for a while before he continued.

"I know about the school situation and I am disappointed in you as always but that's not what I wanted to talk to you about."

"Hinata, you are a great disappointment to this family and sometimes I wish Hanabi would have been born first or that you had never existed in the first place so that such a shame would never have been brought against the Hyuuga name."

Ignoring the flinch she gave, he went on.

"I received a letter from your mother and her new husband, requesting custody of you. I have to give up all rights except for a case where both she and her husband are both deceased. Then you will come back to me unless there is someone else you'd rather live with that is of age. You will keep the Hyuuga surname but may also be adopted and take their surname also in which case you will have the privileges of both families.

When you turn 18, you will spend a year learning how to be head of the clan and at the end of that year, if you have not impressed me, proved yourself, or changed at all, I will make Hanabi heir. But you will not be disowned.

No matter how much I want to, it would bring greater shame upon the clan if I disowned you. I have taken the liberty to accept the offer for you. Get packed. The car will be here in 3 hours to take you to the airport. This is a final goodbye. I will not see you off so don't come into my study or my bedroom to say goodbye. I have more important things to do."

Recognizing the dismissal for what it was, Hinata stumbled out of the study in shock, giving a clumsy bow directed at her father. Hiashi just eyed her with disdain all over his face. "Good riddance." He thought.

"The disgrace is gone. I can focus my attention on the things that matter now.

Hinata had finished packing with an hour and a half left to go. She called a servant to grab her bags and take them to the entrance hall. After the servant had closed the door it was like whatever floodgate that had been holding back her emotions behind the shock had burst open. She was overwhelmed by the usual feeling of hate, heartbreak, anger, relief, self-deprecation, and happiness intensified times 10.

The emotions proved to be too much as she felt whatever had only broken earlier completely shatter. She grabbed at her chest and cried out as unimaginable and agonizing pain flowed over her before she welcomed the darkness.

A knock at the door brought her back to consciousness as a servant called out.

"Lady Hinata? The car is outside now."

"Thank you. I will be there quickly. Please put my luggage in the trunk.'

She felt oddly numb and detached. She felt no emotions.

And she absolutely loved it.

Looking out the window at the place that had been her "home" for the past 14 years, she vowed that if she ever came back she would make life living hell for the people who made her life a living hell.

3 years later

Konoha High was one of the most prestigious schools in China. Only the best of the best was allowed to be schooled here. The school itself was built like a palace and was an amazing piece of architecture. With spiraling towers and gold inlay, it was like a castle out of a feudal era fairy tale. The students were from the almost noble families and were the children of doctors, actors, government officials, old aristocratic families, etc. The older your family was and the more money you had, the higher you were up on the social latter.

The Hyuuga, Uchiha, Zhan-go, Uzamaki, Haruno, Inuzuka, Nara, and Yamanaka families were some of the oldest and the family members that came to Konoha High were Royalty.

Royalty was always given the best table in the Courtyard.

The courtyard was a large circular garden-like area where students could eat lunch. It was right in front of the entrance. You would have to go through it to get to the school. It was beautiful, filled with fountains, flowers, and sculptures. The tables were all mixed about the area but all had direct view of the long driving lane that lead up to the school. The Royal table was dead in the center of all the garden like area and would have the clearest view of anyone driving up.

The courtyard was buzzing with gossip. The mysterious Jiang Family were one of the oldest families in China, up there with the Hyuuga, Uchiha, and Uzamaki family. The Head and his wife had been recently murdered and the adopted heir and heiress were coming to Konoha High. Everyone wanted to look their very best and impress two of the richest and most powerful teens in China, possibly the whole world.

Everyone except Kohona's Royalty.

This consisted of Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Haruno, Neji and Hanabi Hyuuga, TenTen Zhan-go, Naruto Uzamaki, Kiba Inuzuka, Ino Yamanaka, Shikamaru Nara, and Temari Zing.

They were rich.

They were popular.

They were beautiful and confident.

They were powerful.

Who wouldn't want to be their friend?

They didn't need to do anything extra for these people to be impressed.

They all watched as a limo drove up the long drive to the school and parked in front of the courtyard. The driver came around and opened the door.

Out stepped a strange boy. He had on a long coat with it zipped over his mouth and black shades on. He stepped to the side and reached his hand inside the car. It was the person he was waiting for the captured the entire school's interest.

A delicate and elegant hand grabbed the weird guy's. He gently led whoever it was out of the car.

First they saw the milky white lean legs, then they saw the whole girl. She was gorgeous!

She had long hair, waist/small of her back length that was a dark blue/purple color. She had full red lips, a heart shaped face and beautiful but cold and mysterious dark lavender colored eyes. She had the clearest milky white skin anyone had ever seen and a great shape, she was clearly fit.

Her black corset, blue skinny jeans, and black wedges emphasized her every curve. They were captivated by this dark angel as she and the mysterious boy walked silently into the courtyard. They all felt inferior to this beauty as her lavender eyes glanced over them.

A twisted amusement entered her eyes as she saw the "Royal Table" and her lips twisted into a cruel smile full of dark things as she walked over to their table. As she stared down at them, that dark amusement in her eyes, they felt the inferiority everyone else usually felt.

She opened her mouth and in a soft sultry voice, said the words that shocked everyone into silence and caused a glint of shocked and disbelieving recognition to enter many people's eyes, especially the Royals.

"Hello Sister, Hello Cousin, Hello "Friends".
