Hello! And welcome to my new short story. I have been toying with the idea of doing a story for Neji, simply because he is one of my favorite characters in Naruto.. There is something oddly adorable and sad about him. Anyways this is a short drabble story, so the chapters won't be long.

Disclaimer: I sadly own nothing.

The first time he met Kagome Higurashi, she ran straight into him, causing her small form to fall back on her bottom, spilling her herbs all over the ground. The first thing he noticed about her was the curses she muttered under her breath; the second thing he noticed was her eyes.

Bright blue eyes that twinkled with annoying, the blue colour oddly enough reminded him of sapphires; yet when she looked up and the sun hit her eyes, the colour reminded him more of the way the light would hit and reflect blue amber.

He extended a hand without much thought to help the young woman up after she was done collecting her herbs, a small apology escaping his lips as her small hand slid into his rougher one.

"Oh no, it's my fault for not seeing where I was going." Her soft voice hit his ears and he stared at her white lilac-almost milky white eyes.

"My name is Kagome. Kagome Higurashi. Thanks for helping me up." Kagome smiled gently at the male, lightly using the hand that wasn't holding her basket to dust away any dirt from her bottom.

"Neji. Neji Hyuuga." The raven-haired woman gave a nod, yet offered no further interest in his surname.

"Nice to meet you, Neji. I have to go now, have a nice day." The woman with the pretty blue eyes gave yet another comforting smile before walking away and Neji was left staring after her, watching the way her long black hair swayed in tune with her hips; a strange sensation bubbling in his chest. He didn't even realise he was clenching the hand that had held the woman's.

That meeting sealed his fate without him knowing it.

Reviews are my food.
