This goes out to the the story's fans: Robyn and Jessica! Enjoy! P.S. Three props for the first person that finds the Avatar the last Airbender moment I hid in the story!
At first Hinata didn't know what to make of Kiyori Mamuro and Kimiko Rei, but in time she grew to love them both as the family she'd always wanted. Naruto-Kun didn't trust them completely because "something's off about those two" Neji-San didn't trust them from the moment he was told by Hinata's dad that Kiyo-San and Kimi-san (as she called them then) had come from the hidden cloud village, which made Naruto-kun even more suspicious. Kiyo-kun and Kimi-kun(what Hinata called them today: Hinata smiled bitterly in her cell) had told Tsunade(Hokage even today) of their origin on purpose, and even offered to make it public. Combine this with Kiyori's sporadic singing and joke telling, Kimiko's morale boosting talks and her own singing, Kiyori's impressive kitchen skills(he made the best cinnamon rolls and Zenzei, and other good dishes Hinata hadn't even heard of)Kimiko's way of deflecting pervs(one kick made a perv look like he was folding inside himself) and both their kind natures, and in six months Hinata had gone from calling them San to calling them Kun. One afternoon, while Hinata had lunch with Kiyori and Kimiko, Kiyori offered to spar with her, and Hinata accepted, and soon it became a regular thing, with Kiyo-kun and Kimi-kun talking out her frustrations afterward. Hinata noticed that Kiyo-kun always looked a little pale when she left. After a sparring session, Hinata had left Kiyori and Kimiko's house (on the other side of town from Hinata's) in such a hurry that she left her headband and other stuff at their house. She noticed this soon enough so she could go back and still be home in time for dinner. As she opened the front door, she saw the one thing she wish she could forget: Kiyori was laying on the sofa, looking feverish while Kimiko did medicinal nin on his head and heart. "we moved here FOR your health, Kiyo-chan," said Kimi-kun in the most tender tone Hinata had ever heard her use,"who knew?" Kiyori was muttering in the throes of his fever, and Hinata had walked in in time to hear him say"-sama" Hinata blinked. Kiyori and Kimiko both called her "Hinata-chan", so this confused Hinata. Nonetheless, she wanted to help her friend, and so said,"M-may I help?" Kimiko didn't turn around but said "get out of my house" "B-but" "LEAVE!" screamed Kimiko, turning around with a face filled with rage. Hinata ran as fast as she could until she reached home. In the morning her stuff was at her front door.
Hope you've enjoyed this! I'll take a break and write a Xmas/birthday special on Hinata's birthday, the 27th, about Hinata's 18th birthday! Hope you'll stick around!
