Just something small to keep your brain focused on my stories, peeps. In other words, a cute NaruHina oneshot/songfic on "Fool Like Me". Enjoy!
Naruto was trying so hard to get a date out of Hinata, but it was a pain with her parents always hanging up the phone or never letting him in the Hyuga compound at anytime, and never to ask Hinata out.
What the hell? I apologized for blowing up her mailbox with my Rasengan already! I apologized and said that I was just kidding, and yeah, I also hit Hanabi with my new bike a little while ago, but her arm's still attached, so she'll be fine.
Hinata also doubted that Naruto was ever going to change. Unfortunately, she didn't know that he liked her, but vice versa it makes absolutely no difference; despite the fact that Ino, the biggest loudmouth the universe has ever seen starts screaming, "HINATA! LOVE HIM OR LEAVE HIS ASS IN THE DIRT! IT'S THE NATURAL ORDER OF LIFE!"
One summer night, Naruto, an almost man, was standing on Hinata's porch acting like an idiot, which he in fact was, so that makes no difference whatsoever to his normal way of life. For some reason, it made Hinata smile.
Some people just never grow up, she thought.
Naruto considered himself lucky that he was even able to get into the compound this time, because normally, he's kicked out by this point.
"Hey, Hinata? I'm sorry for knocking over the tree in your front yard with the toads, but your family's made me broke from breaking Hanabi's arm, and I'm not very rich. Also…."
As Naruto listed his repeated mistakes with the Hyuga family, including the following:
Putting fake moustaches on Mr. Hyuga's (AN: blanking on the name) campaign posters for the Head of Konoha Investors.
While Neji was training screaming the following : "THAT HOT WEAPONS CHICK IS RIGHT OVER THERE!" This resulted in Neji falling flat on his face like a moron (and yeah, Tenten was there when Neji was at his worst).
Lecturing Hanabi on all the reasons why Santa isn't real ("What kind of animal has a glowing red nose?")
Hinata doubted this would ever change, but she was okay with it. After all, she still has an enormous crush on him, so she must still like him.
Back to the front porch.
"Hey, Hinata?" Naruto asks out of the blue. For some reason, he seems more serious than usual.
"Y-Yes, N-Naruto?" Stupid damn STUTTER! Hinata groaned inside her head.
"Do you like me, even though your parents hate me and I'm a complete idiot?"
"Y-Yeah. Yeah, I do, Naruto."
"AWESOME! NOW I CAN TELL SAKURA THAT I GOT A GIRLFRIEND BEFORE SHE DID! HA-HA-HA!" Naruto shouted in his usual stupid way.
Naturally, he got kicked out of the compund again, but not without a certain shy ninja quietly sneaking out of the house behind him.
