Chapter 5: Hero

Hinata stared down at Naruto face, Naruto told her everything was going to be just fine. But that's not what his eyes told her, that told the opposite to, worry.

I am so high. I can hear heaven.

Naruto could see the fear and sadness in Hinata's smile. Naruto knew something was wrong.

"What's going on?"

"I don't know kid" the fox replied

"What do you mean? "

"It's like you're shutting down"

"What!"

"Yes it seems like you're body is shutting down on you for no reason and I can't stop it "

Naruto looked at the rain falling softly outside, and then back to Hinata. Naruto moved his hand and reached over and grabbed Hinata's.

I am so high. I can hear heaven.

Hinata was jumped out of her trance by Naruto's hand, but held it tight. Hinata wished things would go back to the way they were when they were genin, rookies. But nothing was changing.

Oh but heaven, no heaven don't hear me.

Am supposed to be the Hero but what can I do here, like this Naruto thought

And they say that a hero can save us.
I'm not gonna stand here and wait.

Sakura was standing in the doorway of the waiting room, Naruto was only allowed one visitor at a time. Sakura stood there smoking a cigarette, what more can we do but stand here and wait but I just can't Sakura thought. She took one last puff of smoke, and put it out in the ash tray and started walking out the door.

I'll hold onto the wings of the eagles.
Watch as we all fly away.

Sakura sat at the very top of a tree staring down at the village, wondering what happened and where it went wrong. "To be the greatest Hokage that's my dream then the whole village will stop disrespecting me and start treating me like am somebody, somebody important" Naruto's voice echoed in her head, "but you already are important Naruto"

Someone told me love will ALL save us. Yea that's a lie, love hasn't given me a thing.

But how can that be, look what love gave us.
A world full of killing, and blood-spilling

Neji was staring out the window of the hospital, Ten-ten was asleep in one of the chairs.

That world never came

"You say that destiny can't be changed" "you say that everyone's destiny is decided at birth" "those who are born to be hokage, will be hokage"I guess you weren't one of them Naruto Neji thought

And they say that a hero can save us.
I'm not gonna stand here and wait
. Neji walked away, he couldn't stand just standing there waiting.

I'll hold onto the wings of the eagles.
Watch as we all fly away.

Neji turned to see 2 birds flying away, Neji felt like a bird in a cage again wishing he could just fly away.

Now that the world isn't ending, its love that I'm sending to you.
It isn't the love of a hero, and that's why I fear it won't do.

Hinata felt like she was watching the world end before her eyes, but it wasn't the world that was ending. It was just her world ending and her heart breaking into a million pieces before her eyes.

"Sniff sniff, why am I so different. What sets me apart?" "Hinata! Don't do this " "I don't give up and I don't back down that's my nido , my ninja way" Tears fell down Hinata's face , Naruto reached over and wiped away her tears. She tried to smile for his sake more then her own.

And they say that a hero can save us.
I'm not gonna stand here and wait.

Hinata reached up and touched Naruto's hand, his hand was cold and lifeless. Naruto smiled at her, he closed his eyes. They didn't open again, his hand fell from Hinata's face. Nurses and Doctors rushed in and Hinata couldn't stand it and ran out of the room, only to be stopped by her cousin. Hinata kept yelling for Neji to let go, but he didn't he just held her close. Hinata gave in and started to calm down, she realized that she wasn't the only one who loved him.

I'll hold onto the wings of the eagles.
Watch as we all fly away.

Naruto's Laughing rang in her head she started crying again.

The next day everyone was in black even Juyria and Tsunade. Hinata stared at the grave where he was, nothing moved though she knew nothing would.

And they're watching us (Watching Us)

"Hehehehe" Sakura looked up at the sky, strange I thought I heard Naruto laughing.

And they're watching us (Watching Us)

"You better win" Sasuke looked up at the Sky, and Naruto's face in the clouds grinning down at him Dobe Sasuke smirked

As we all fly away.

A bird took off from behind, Naruto's grave it's wings flapping as it flew through the air, freely.
