Chapter 1

Hinata felt crushed, Naruto had rejected her in a callous manner. Okay, he had just been massacred in public by Sakura, but it didn't justify his acts. She had thought that he would accept her after finding out that he had no chance with the Haruno. 'It seems that I was wrong.' A bitter smile warped her features as her hope waned. Her love was still in love with his abuser.

Her family planned to marry her to a nobleman, there was high chances that he would be much older than her. She had no value for anyone save her teammates and sister. 'It's too much to bear...' Thoughts of suicide crossed her mind and stuck there. 'I won't be able to leave a legacy anyway.' She went home and began writing her last letter and will, but as she wrote, tears leaked out, marking the paper. When she finished, she pinned it to the door of her bedroom with a kunai.

She used her Byakugan to evade anyone, whether she knew them or not. Her path led to the tomb of her mother, where she took off a poisoned blade that she used for assassination missions. "This is our last time together." She plunged it on her arm, letting the venom work its way in her body. "At least... I'll be free of the pain..." She felt as her heart slowed down and her breaths became painful. She passed on, leaning on the stone over the grave, with a smile.

Hanabi walked slowly to her sister's room, hoping to help with her pain, even if she didn't know how. She had witnessed her rejection and saw the pain and heartbreak behind her serene facade. 'Why did she even love him?! He's a jerk!' But she stopped at the sight of a stained paper on the door. "No..." She took it carefully and began reading, knowing that it was too late. When she finished, she went to find the Inuzuka and the Aburame, they deserved more than anyone to know.

Kiba and Shino were surprised to see the young Hyuuga, but it soon turned in worry when they saw her tears. They heard the news in silence, and after they read the letter, Kiba howled in anguish as Shino wept. The trip went to retrieve the body, not saying a word in the way. Hinata had a peaceful expression, which broke their hearts further. The dog user picked her body with care, grimacing at the smell of rot. They took her to the Hokage, so she could take the necessary actions.

The village was shocked at the announcement of the death of the Hyuuga heiress, mainly the Rookies. When the funeral took place, both Shino and Kiba fought fiercely to keep Naruto and Sakura from entering the room. "WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM?! SHE'S MY FRIEND!" Kiba punched the Uzumaki on the face. "You lost the right to refer to her in this manner!" Sakura was panting harshly, weakened thanks to Shino's bugs. "Your acts led to her death, so you have no place here." Akamaru fused to his owner, forming a two headed beast to fight Naruto. It was painful to watch, even if they were the attackers, the remainder of Team 8 were clearly the ones in pain, if their tears were an indication. "Please, just let her rest in peace." The duo dropped their attacks, retreating to mourn their friend.


Rain poured over the people that watched as the casket was lowered in the grave, and the earth turned mud hid the wood from the world. The ones who knew the girl recalled her kindness. As a Hyuuga, she was expected to be snobbish and prideful, but she wasn't. Nobody could understand her reasons for suicide, and never would.

This is the letter left by Hinata:

To anyone that reads this, I'm sorry for dying.

Kiba and Shino, I hope that you forgive me for

abandoning the team, take care of Kurenai and

her child for me. Hanabi, I wish that you have a

good life, and remember always: I love you.

Even when I was supposed to despise you,

live for me, be a good leader. Father, I forgive you,

I knew that you were crushed after mother died,

and that I made you remember her, both in the

good and bad ways.

But I can't live anymore, not after the love of my

life crushed my heart. I hope that you manage to marry

Sakura, Naruto. Even if I wished to be the one by your side.

I'm crying to much, maybe the paper will be too smudged to

read. Finally, I am free.
