Chapter 1-Smile For Me



"been a long road to follow
been there and gone tomorrow
without saying goodbye to yesterday
are the memories I hold still valid?
or have the tears deluded them?
maybe this time tomorrow
the rain will cease to follow
and the mist will fade into one more today
something somewhere out there keeps calling
am I going home?
will I hear someone singing solace to the silent moon?
zero gravity what's it like?
am I alone?
is somebody there beyond these heavy aching feet
still the road keeps on telling me to go on
something is pulling me
I feel the gravity of it all"


I took two steps forward and bowed just barely before extending my hands towards a rose that someone was holding out to me. Just then a young girl squeezed her way through the crowd. My expression turned soft as I helped the little girl onto the stage. "Hello, what's your name?" I asked. "Hanajima" the small child answered. "That's a very pretty name" I said with a smile. "I want to be just like you when I grow up!" Hanajima said happily, hugging my neck. "Well then, want me to sing a song just for you?" I asked gently. "Yes please! Will you sing 'Fake Wings'?" she squealed. I nodded and passed her back down to her panicking mother. Then I stood back up and the music started, after just a little less than a minute the words started.


"Shine bright morning light
Now in the air the spring is coming
Sweet blowing wind
Singing down the hills and valleys
Keep your eyes on me
Now we're on the edge of hell
Dear my love, sweet morning light
Wait for me, you've gone much farther, too far (whole song x2)"


Applause erruppted again and I bowed again. I looked at Hanajima and she was talking frantically to her mother who turned to me and glared coldly. I bit my lip. It was true and I knew it. Many women disliked or distrusted me. I sighed. That was why I had been so happy to see that little girl. I walked off stage abd tied my hair quickly, changing from my dress (the one in the first pic) back to my ninja clothes. Then I slowly walked to the back to get my payment and returned home. As I stood at the door of my apartment I got dizzy, and leaned on the door, sweat quickly covering my body. Waves of pain ran through my stomach as a distant humming came to my ears. I fumbled blindly with my keys and stumbled into my apartment. I closed the door and fumbled forward, heading to my bedroom but I didn't have the strength so instead I fell onto the sofa in my Living Room. After about 10 minutes I started to feel better but didn't dare sit up out of fear as my face became sticky from my drying salted tears. I felt the weight on my sofa shift and immediatly shot up. N-Neji-san? How did you get in here?!" I exclaimed. A flicker of a smile appeared across his face. "You closed the door, but you didn't lock it. I followed you after you left from karoke." I frowned and wagged my finger. "I told you to stop following me" I said in a mock scolding voice. "And I don't care what you told me to do" he mocked back. I stuck my tongue out childishly and he shook his head. "A chuunin and you're still sticking your tongue out at people" he tsked. "Only for you, babe" I joked. This time he frowned and whacked me on the head. I growled at him and lay back down, slowly letting my eyes flutter shut.


*Neji's POV*


She let her eyes flutter shut and I gazed at her wanting for a moment to bend down and stroke her hair then give her a kiss goodnight. I frowned slightly and watched her until her breathing changed to show she was fully asleep. I picked her up gently and carried her to her bed, tucking her in gently. Then I brushed away some of her hair and kissed her softly on the forehead. I could have sworn I saw a small smile flicker across Koori-san's face.
(Me:The Next Morning! :o )

Chapter2-Neji And Koori-Chan



I woke up in my bed and smiled knowingly.
Neji-kun.


As I got dressed and brushed my hair I sang.


"Four scene of love and laughter
I'll be alright being alone
Four scene of love and laughter
I'll be alright being alone
Four scene of love and laughter
I'll be alright being alone
Four scene of love and laughter
I'll be OK


Aishi aeba wakare yuku sonna deai kurikaeshita
Kioku fukaku tesaguri de ami kage o motomete wa
I can taste the sweetness of the past
Doko ni mo anata wa inai kedo
Ill be alright me o tsureba soko ni
Kawaranai ai o I belive
Haru no hikari atsu metara hana sakasete
Natsu wa tsuku ukabu umi de mitsumete
Aki no kaze fuyu no yuki mo sono toiki de
Atatamete hoshii
Four seasons with your love mou ichido"


By now I was heading out the door and out into the sunshine of a Kohona morning.


"Negai dakedo yakusoku wa toki ga tade wa iroaseru
Can you feel me underneath the skin?
Anna ni kasaneta omoi dara
Well be alright
shinjite ireba sou
Donna touku demo stay with me
Haru no hanareru no youru ni mukare ni kite
Natsu no sunaham ni message nokoshite
Aki mo ame fuyu no namida kazarame ai de
Atatamete hoshii Four seasons with your love yume no naka
Megareru toki o kokoro ni ari no mama ni
Futari ni hibi wa sugu omoide
Ai mo yume mo wasure mono itsu no hide mo
Atatamete hoshii
Four seasons with your love mune no oku
Four scene, four four seasons
Four scene, Ill be alright
Four scene, four four seasons
Four scene, stay with me
Four scene, four four seasons
Four scene, Ill be alright
Four scene, four four seasons
Four scene, stay with me
Four scene, four four seasons
Four scene, Ill be alright
Four scene, four four seasons

Four scene, four four seasons
Four scene, Ill be alright
Four scene, four four seasons
Four scene, stay with me"


By now I had reached my team. "Bravo!" one of my teamates exclaimed. I laughed and gave a mock bow. "Yes, bravo" a voice agreed from behind me and stood up quickly and turned around. "Aa! Neji-san! Shouldn't you be with your team?!" I exclaimed. He smirked "I gave them the day off so I could be with you. Have you forgotten your own birthday?" Neji-san asked. "Ack! Hai! I completly forget!! Arigatou, Neji-kun." I turned to my group "I'll see you guys tommorrow then" I said with a laugh. They all bowed'. "Arigatou, Hana-senpai!" they said in unison, and ran off. Then I turned back to Neji-kun. "Did you have something planned? Because if not I had planned to spend my birthday by the lake" I said. Neji shook his head no and I nodded. "Okay. Are their others coming along?" I asked. Neji smirked "No" he said. I couldn't help but blush as I turned away, heading for the lake at a slow, relaxed pace. Neji-san came up behind me and snatched me into his arms bridal style running as quickly as he could towards the lake as I let out an exclamation of suprise. "Aie ya!!Neji!!" I exclaimed. Neji chuckled as he put me down "You called me just Neji" he remarked. "Did I?" I said blushing. "ACK! Gomen Nasai, Neji-san!" I exclaimed covering my face to hide my bright pink blush. "It's alright, Koori-chan" Neji said, taking my hands from my blushing face. "Hey, could I ask you to sing for me?" he asked. "Like..as in, right now?" I replied. "Yes, as in right now...maybe 'Heaven'?" Neji replied, smirking once again. I blushed and sighed "Alright" I said softly. "But ONLY because you're so damn cute" I said, knowing that would annoy him. And it did, but he blushed too. I smirked, and began.


"Baby you're all that I want.
When you're lying here in my arms

I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in heaven.


Oh, thinking about all our younger years,

There was only you and me,
We were young and wild and free.

Now nothing can take you away from me.
Weve been down that road before,

But that's over now.
You keep me coming back for more.


Baby you're all that I want.
When you're lying here in my arms

I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in heaven.


And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart.

It isn't too hard to see
We're in heaven.


Now, nothing could change what you mean to me.
There's a lot that I could say

But just hold me now,
Cause our love will light the way.


Baby you're all that I want.
When you're lying here in my arms

I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in heaven.


And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart.

It isn't too hard to see
We're in heaven.


Now our dreams are coming true.
Through the good times and the bad
I'll be standing there by you.


(Were in heaven.)


And love is all that I need

And I found it there in your heart.

It isn't too hard to see
We're in heaven."


Neji smiled ever so slightly and I stuck my tongue out at him again he smirked and said. "You should stop sticking your tongue out. Someday someone might stick their's down your throat" he teased. I snorted "That won't be a problem. As I said last night you're the only person who ever get's my tongue in their face." I said standing up. Neji grabbed me from behind and whispered in my ear. "Like I said; someone might stick their tongue down your throat." he answered. I blushed furiosuly. "You wouldn't?!" I exclaimed. "Actually, yes I would. Need me to show you?" he asked evily. I frowned and pulled away slapping him. "PERVERT!" I shouted, stalking off.
What a crummy birthday!! (Me: Yeah!)
YAY! BYE BYE NEJI!!! (Me: *glares*)

Chapter 3-Distant Neji, Intimate Kisses



I sat in my room alone with the curtains drawn and at 4:45 PM I turned on my CD Player.


"been a long road to follow
been there and gone tomorrow
without saying goodbye to yesterday
are the memories I hold still valid?
or have the tears deluded them?
maybe this time tomorrow
the rain will cease to follow
and the mist will fade into one more today
something somewhere out there keeps calling
am I going home?
will I hear someone singing solace to the silent moon?
zero gravity what's it like?
am I alone?
is somebody there beyond these heavy aching feet
still the road keeps on telling me to go on
something is pulling me
I feel the gravity of it all"


"Hm hmmm hmmm hmmmm hhmhm hmmmh mm hmmmm hmhmhmhmmm hmmm hm hmmhmhmmmmmmm hmhmm hmmmmmmm hmm hmmhmhmmmmmmm" a voice hummed in my ear as the song went on. "What are you doing here, Neji?" I asked. Neji didn't answer but shoved a gift into my arms. I smiled softly. Now this was the Neji I knew. Quiet and distant; very, VERY distant. I opened it and my smile widened.




I stared at the dress layed so carefully in the box and small tears came to my eyes. "Gomen Nasai, Neji-kun." I whispered turning around and hugging him tightly. He jerked slightly, then slowly hugged me back. "Gomen Nasai" I repeated, burying my face in his shirt. He stroked my hair, shakily. "I wasn't myself today. I'm the one who should be sorry" he answered. "I...Iwaswonderingifyouwantedtogotodinnerwithme" he muttered quickly. "Hmm?" I mumbled "Slowly, Neji-kun". He gripped my shoulder. "I was wondering if you...wanted to um, go to-to dinner with me" he repeated. I smiled and looked up, my face inches from his. "I'd love to, Neji-k-!!". He pressed his lips onto mine before I could add the honorific onto the end of his name. I could see tears brimming at the edges of his closed eyes before I let my own close, kissing him back. After a few minutes I let myself slip away from his lips and rested my head on his chest. "I should go change into this dress" I whispered. Neji stole another quick kiss and I went to the bathroom to change. I came out in the dress with my hair down and Neji's eyebrows shot up in suprise. "Your hair..." he mumbled. I smiled and went over to him, sitting on his lap. "I know" I said simply. Then we got up and went to a restaurant for dinner. As we entered people stared at us...well, guys were staring at me, rather. I listened to the radio that was playing and realised it was a recording of one of my performances at the karoke bar from a few days ago. I closed my eyes, listening to my own voice.


"Angely i demony kruzhili nado mnoj
Razbivali ternii i zvyozdnye puti
Ne znaet schast'ya tol'ko tot,
Kto ego zova ponyat' ne smog...


I am Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...
Calling Calling, in the depth of longing
Soboj ostat'sya dol'she..."


Neji pulled out my chair for me and I sat, smiling at him politely. We ordered vegetable gyoza and sat, just admiring each other for no particular reason. "I like his eyes the most..." I thought to myself. Forgetting there were others there I reached across the table and stroked his cheekbone with my thumb with a small smile. A smile flickered across his face and then I drew back as our food arrived. After we ate he took my hand, paid the bill (after great protest from me) and walked me home. He kissed my hand softly and I kissed his cheek. Then we stood staring at each other. Neji didn't leave, and I didn't go inside.


Finally, I snatched his hands and pulled him into my home with me which made him laugh. I hugged him, nuzzling my face in his neck and whispered, "Arigatou, thank you again for the wonderful night. and again Gomen Nasai for slapping you and calling you a pervert earlier". He stroked my hair as I muttered apologetic little nothings in his ear. Slowly, so that I was barely aware of it he backed me to the sofa. Then suddenly he pushed me down and climbed on top of me. I looked up at him, startled but he kissed me before I could ask any questions. I closed my eyes, giving an involuntary shiver as I returned his affections. Then he started to plant butterfly kisses in my neck and collarbone and my face heated up. I looked at him too his eyes even more distant than usual. I sat up slowly and moved my lips to his cheek, then down to his neck. His eyes widened and he gave a noise of small shock, before his eyes half-closed, a bright pink coming to his cheeks. I brought my lips to his ear. "What? I couldn't let you have all the fun, now could I?".


A small moan was his response.

Chapter 4-Shoes and Shirts



*3 Years Later*


"Neji! You hid my shoes again!!!" I exclaimed in exhasperation. Me and Neji are officially together and have been for a while. It's the night of our second anniversary (Not WEDDING anniversary. Girlfirend/Boyfriend Anniversary) and Neji has brought it upon himself to hide my shoes. Probably so I'll have to stay the night. He walked out of his bedroom, shirtless and smirked. "Of course not, babe" he said sarcastically. I frowned like a child and stuck my tongue out at him. It's true, I still do that. He smirked and snatched me by the arm, nipping gently on my exposed tongue. I put my tongue back in my mouth. "Why do you do that?" I asked him. He chuckled as he wrapped his arms around me. "Because it's fun" he said simply. I wrinkled my nose "You're really weird, Neji-kun".


One of his hands drifted up the back of my top. I know" he said. "Neji. You're hands are cold" I whimpered trying to pull his hand off of my back. He ignored me, that distant look returning to his eyes as his hand moved down to my hip. "Babe, please. Seriously, you're really cold" I pleaded. His hand withdrew and I let out a sigh of relief, shivering as my back and hip tingled. I punched him lightly in the arm and he snorted. Suddenly he flung me onto his bed. Dang it, he'd been doing his distract-her-and-slowly-back-up-to-something-lie-on thing again. He climbed on top of me, straddling me and started to kiss down my neck and colarbone. I smiled' "Well; I guess I could stay the night." I said slowly.


"That's what I wanted to hear, Koori-chan"
