Babies and Problems.

Chspter One:

Discovery.

The sun was shining brilliantly in the sky as the black haired girl and her blond boy friend returned to their village from the stupid D-Rank mission they had just finished. They had their hands wrapped tightly together as they walked to where the Hokage resided.

"Uzumaki Naruto, and Hyuga Hinata, excellent job." The blond fifty some year-old lady smiled. "Your mission was a success and the star village is very grateful."

"Grandma Tsunade, you gotta send us on more interesting missions, I mean ever since Sasuke came back he's been getting all the good missions. I did stuff harder than this when I was a genin!" Naruto whined.

"Naruto-kun, I think lady Tsunade just wants to make sure that Sasuke is back for good, that's all. We'll get harder missions soon enough." Hinata tried to comprimise.

"So, did anything interesting happen on your mission?" Tsunade always liked to know the details of the missions Naruto participated in.

Both Naruto and Hinata turned bright red when she asked this question. Because something interesting did happen, they just couldn't let her know because they had been on a mission.

"Umm...yah, I saw Sumaru again, he's already Hoshikage." Naruto spat out.

"Really, that means they've all got you beat Naruto, you're 19 years old and still not Hokage. Gaara's been Kazekage for 4 years now. You need to pick up the pace!" Tsunade always picked on the blond boy for this.

"He'll do it eventually!" Hinata said with a smile.

There was a knock on the door behind Naruto and Hinata. Naruto turned and opened the door. He saw Sasuke, his best friend and rival, standing next to eachother, they looked like they had just gotten back from a mission too. Naruto held out a fist and Sasuke punched it back, it was how they said hello now. sakura hugged Hinata and they both smiled.

"Hinata, Naruto, you're dismissed." Tsunade said waving her hand in the air to send them away.

"I'll see you later!" Hinata waved goodbye to the pink haired girl as she left.

Naruto and Hinata walked down to the park and sat on a bench together.

"Man, that was close." Naruto sighed, wrapping his arm around Hinata's shoulders.

"What do you mean?" Hinata asked him.

"Well, Grandma would have had me for lunch if she found out about the other night." He remembered the first night of their mission.

"And Sasuke would bother you about it for life."

"Nah, he's been on enough missions with Sakura for someting to have happened." Naruto shrugged.

He put his finger under Hinata's chin and kissed her gently. She didn't blush as much as sheused to, but her face still turned a light shade of red.

"Naruto and Hinata sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!" A husky voice called out childishly.

The couple turned to see a boy with brown hair and red triangles on his cheeks. His huge dog was standing next to him and even on all fours, the animal was two feet taller than the ninja.

"Kiba!" Naruto yelled and he ran over to his friend and punched him right in the face.

"Naruto! Don't hurt him!" Hinata scolded the boy.

"Wow! Akamaru's huge now!" Naruto changed the subject.

"You saw him two weeks ago, before you guys left for your mission." Kiba was rubbing his cheek.

"Well, he got bigger!" Naruto complained.

"Whatever, do you guys wanna go on a walk with us? We have an A-Rank mission with Shino tomorrow, so we're going to the practice field after our walk."

"Awww, c'mon, what did I do wrong?!" Naruto whined.

"What's with him?" Kiba asked Hinata.

"He's just upset because all he's been getting are D and C-Rank missions." Hinata patted Naruto's back as she explained.

"Sucks for you man." Kiba tried to hold down a laugh.

"Wait! Hinata, we still have to tell your dad that we're back!" Naruto looked like he was going to rip his hair out of his head.

"Oh! I almost forgot! Sorry Kiba, we have to go!" Hinata ran towards her house with Naruto on her tail.


When they got to the girl's house, her father was training with Neji, again.

"Father, we're back!" Hinata called.

"Hey Neji! What's up?" Naruto called out.

They split up into two groups speaking about the mission Naruto and Hinata had just returned from. After a while, Hinata made some tea and handed it out to all of the boys before sitting next to Naruto who was gulping down the drink, even though it was still burning hot.

"So, you didn't hold up the mission then Hinata?" Her father asked.

"No, actually it was thanks to her that we got back so fast!" Naruto answered the question for her. He always hated it when Hinata's father would make her feal insignifigant and weak. She didn't deserve it.

"Really, I'm proud of you Hinata, good job." He began to admit that he was proud of her doing well on her missions a lot more since Naruto was over almost all the time.

"Father, can I go with Naruto to unpack his things?" Hinata asked of him.

"I suppose. Just be back by 11."

"Thank you!"

The pair left to go to Naruto's apartment.

"You don't have to help me unpack if you don't want to." Naruto didn't like to inconvenience her.

"But, I do Naruto-kun!" Hinata smiled.

They walked up the stairs to where the boy lived. naruto opened the door and put down his bag by the closet.

"Do you want some Ramen?" He asked her.

"Sure." She followed him to the kitchen and watched as he made one big bowl for them to share.

"Naruto, can I use your bathroom?" Hinata asked sweetly.

"Of course you can, you really don't have to ask, it's not like I'll say no."

"Ok, then I'll be right back."

When she reached the restroom, she noticed that something was off, there was no blood on the pad she'd put on before leaving the hidden star village. When she was done with her business, she walked back to the kitchen with a slight look of fear on her face.

"What's wrong?" Naruto put down the spoon he'd been using to stir the ramen and walked to her side.

"Nothing. It should be fine." Hinata knew it wasn't though, she was late, again. She was supposed to start 4 days ago. Was she pregnant?

"Hinata, seriously, what is it?" He had his hand on her back.

"I think I might be... pregnant." She whispered with a blush on her face.

Naruto looked just as shocked and scared as her.

"What. Really? Hinata, this is, this is, what is this?" He was so shocked that he couldn't think straight.

"Well this is, good I guess. but, it's also kinda bad. What will the Hokage say? What will my father say?" Her eyes got wider with each question.

"Don't worry, it'll be fine. Hinata, you're gonna be a mom!" Naruto was getting excited now.

"And you'll be a dad." She pointed out, a little less enthusiastic.

"Hinata! I'm gonna be a dad! This is great!" He held her hands in his and smiled.

"But, Naruto. We could get in so much trouble for this, especially you."

"What? Why, does your father not like me or something?" He asked her.

"I didn't tell you because I hoped that it wouldn't matter in the end, but when Neji helped me make the tea for a little while today, he told me that he overheared my father and the clan elders saying that we had to keep the Byakugan in the family exclusivley."

"Well, it's not like I have any family to worry about, so what's the problem?"

"He said that they mentioned he and I being arranged to marry."

"What?! Hinata! You don't want to marry him though right?"

"No, but I have to do what's best for the clan."

"What about Neji, I thought that he'd finally told Tenten about his feelings."

"He did, that's why he told me I suppose, so we could do something about it before you and her got to involved."

"Well, we should check to see if you really are pregnant before we worry about any of that."

"Who could we ask?"

The wood of the door made a knocking noise.

"Who is it?" Naruto called.

"It's me, Sakura! I want to hear about the mission." The pink haired girl's voice yelled.

"How 'bout Sakura, she won't tell Grandma." Naruto whispered.

"Ok, I guess." Hinata whispered in response.

"C'mon in! The door's unlocked." Naruto yelled to the door.

They heard the creak of the huge door and footsteps. Then she tunred the corner and smiled.

"Hey Hinata! I didn't know that you were here too! What's wrong you guys?" Sakura asked. She saw the akwardness in their faces.

"Umm. Sakura, can I ask you a favor?" Hinata was blushing.

"Sure, what's up?" Sakura replied casually.

"Umm. Hinata, thinks she's...pregnant." Naruto blushed too.

"Wow, I guess that you did more than build houses on that mission." Sakura was slightly surprised, but not really. She knew this would happen someday.

"Sakura, will you just check, you're a medical ninja after all." Naruto almost begged.

"You won't get a treat for begging, just a knuckle sandwhich if it gets annoying." Then Sakura walked Hinata to the couch.

"Hinata, lay down and put your hands at your side." Sakura really did sound like a doctor.

Sakura puther hands together and they lit up with green chakra. She put her hands over Hinata's lower stomach and focused. Naruto was standing nervously in the kitchen. Sakura sighed and lowered her hands.

"Hinata, you are pregnant. Naruto, can I speak to you outside." She looked like Naruto was going to become her murder victim.

"I don't think that's such a good idea." Naruto tried to hide behind the island counter of his kitchen.

"Now, Naruto. I could destroy your house if I wanted to, remember that." Sakura was so scary when she was mad.

"Fine. Hinata, if I'm not back in five minutes, call the black ops." Naruto asked.

"O-Ok." She choked out.

Naruto walked to the door with Sakura following him angrily.

As soon as they were outside, Sakura exploed," Naruto! What were you thinking? She could get killed for this! It'll be all your fault if she does."

"I won't let that happen. Hinata told me that when we were at her house earlier, Neji told her that he overheard their family talking about them being arranged to get married. That's not right and you know it. I'm gonna make sure that doesn't happen. Neji belongs with Tenten." Naruto sounded serious.

"And Hinata belongs with you, ok. But how're you gonna convince the Hokage to tell her family other wise?" Sakura was barely seeing it the way Naruto did.

"She doesn't have to, I'll take care of it."
