Alright, I decided to add this semi-random short. If you like this style of connected one-shots better than the story, say so. While you read this, try listening to "things left unsaid" by Disciple.
He couldn't believe this was happening. How could his plan have gone so wrong? The usually ecstatic and energetic blond was sitting with his head in his hands despite the thick white bandages wrapped around his palms. His fingers curved up in claws like he was preparing to rip his own face off just to take his mind off the pain of his broken, throbbing heart. "Why?" He suddenly shouted looking up through red-rimmed eyes to stare at the clean white ceiling. "Why couldn't it have been me?"
Looking down to the dark haired beauty lying on the hospital bed in front of him, her pale lavender eyes closed. How he had grown to love the light that came into those eyes every time she saw him. How easy it had been to approach and talk to her. She seemed to like to listen to him just as much as he liked to talk. She had been the first girl in his life to treat him as if he was really worth something more than the skills he had obtained over years of hard training.
And now, as he thought about how she had looked when he asked her to come with him on the training trip to the mountains, he could not help but break anew into tears of regret. 'If I had planed better. If I had slowed down for her. If I had seen she did not have the same stamina as me. If I hadn't decided to make it such a grand reveal, she and I could be sitting now, under the stars a happy couple.'
Such were the thoughts of Uzamaki Naruto as he looked at his near dead friend Hyuuga Hinata.
'How had it gotten this out of hand?' Thought Naruto. He bent forward and said the words that he knew he should have said months before. "I love you Hinata." And he hoped that through all the medicine and gauze, she could hear him and knew that he was standing there, heart aching, eyes fix on her pale, still closed lids.
A.N.: So ya, this was very much inspired by the song. I hope you enjoyed it. If not, tell me what I can do better. If you did, let me know what I did well. Even if you leave an un-named review it would be great. But if you do leave a name, I'll make sure to thank you and check out any stories you suggest. If I like them, I'll pass them on here and to my friends. Until I have time to check in again remember, the literate write history.
