Author: Cassandra's Destiny
Rating: Fiction Rated T
Summary: If the Hyuuga characteristic of being impassive and sullen has finally rubbed off on her, he deemed it was too soon. She should have woken him up at all cost, even if it was a personal matter. “But Neji, it's biological in nature.”

“Tenten?” This time his call was louder.
Slow and obviously distracted, she turned to face him, still unmoving from her place beside a rock. “Neji, what are you doing here?”
Was she surprised?
He walked a few steps closer to her before replying. “You were not home when I woke up…” Trailing off, he noticed the smirk on her face. “What are you smir–”
“So you were worried sick about me?”
The sweet innocent tone she used in that line made his insides numb. What was she trying to pull?
“Hiashi asked me to come for you here.”
“So I did.”
“Following orders, I see.”
There was a tinge of bitterness in her voice now. If it was of anger or frustration, he couldn’t tell. “Yes.”
A moment of silence passed, and Neji was beyond uncomfortable. Perhaps it was her attempt to make him feel guilty over something he did way back when. Perhaps she was trying to make him pay for ignoring her advances that one night. Perhaps she hated him for not being able to impregnate her pronto. Perhaps she—
“I can’t believe you,” he heard her whisper.
He looked down to her and saw she was tearing up, eyes obviously with hints of tears threatening to fall.
“I can’t believe you, Neji.” This time her voice was louder.
What did he do?
And just like in Home TV Shopping channels, I say...
But wait, there's more! I'm happy to announce that this is but story two in what soon would be the Blood Red Trilogy (I was thinking series, but trilogy sounds better.); story one being Honeymoon Turned Red.
