Apologies

The first time Hinata fainted Naruto panicked. He was sure that he had killed her. Iruka had taken the girl to the health center in the school and they said she was fine. She had felt just a bit…faint. Naruto had been relieved and decided to apologize to the kunoichi in training. He was absolutely sure that it was his fault.

When Naruto came back to class the next day he sat waiting for the girl. Hinata walked through the door and eeped when she saw Naruto sitting in the seat next to hers again.

Hinata blushed and sat down. She looked down on her desk and pressed her two fingers together.

"Hinata-san, are you feeling better?" Naruto asked. She blushed and nodded. He sighed in relief.

"I'm sorry about yesterday. I was sure it was something I had done, but Iruka said it wasn't my fault." he said.

"Y-you didn't d-do anything N-Naruto-san." She stuttered as she looked at the other boy.

Naruto smiled and it lit up his whole face. Hinata's breath caught in her throat. He was just so…so beautiful.

"I am sorry though. I really am glad that you're okay."

Hinata relearned how to breathe again.

"Do you want to be friends?" her eyes widened.

"Y-y-yes." She hadn't fainted! She was sure that she was going to.

"Great!" Naruto exclaimed. He gave her a one armed hug.

"We are going to be the best of friends ever. Dattebayo!"

Suddenly, Hinata slumped into his hug. Naruto looked down at her in shock.

"Hinata-san!" Naruto wailed.

Hinata had fainted again.
