It was night, and you couldn’t sleep. So you were just staring at the hospital’s ceiling. Sasuke’s words got you thinking about some things. Mostly about people wanting to leave the village and why others stay. The door to your room slowly opened. You looked over to see Naruto sneaking in. He looked over at you and blinked.
“Oh you’re still up,” he whispered.
Naruto turned and looked down both ways of the hallway. He slowly closed the door once he made sure no one was coming. He turned back to you and smiled. You smiled back. Naruto moved to the chair that was between your bed and the window.
“Shouldn’t you be asleep?” you asked.
“Shouldn’t you?” Naruto asked back, “you are the one that is injured.”
you turned to look back at the ceiling.
“I was thinking,” you answered.
“About what?” Naruto asked.
“A few things that Sasuke said today,” you answered.
Naruto was concerned now.
“What did he say?” he asked.
“He mentioned something about people not allowed to leave the village,” you answered, “if that is true then wouldn’t that make the village a cage to some people?”
“I…I don’t know,” answered Naruto, “maybe.”
You looked at Naruto.
“Isn’t it yo you?” you asked.
Naruto gave you a confused look.
“You have been called a monster most of your life,” you started, “you were even physically hurt. Didn’t or do you still wish to leave here?”
“Once long ago,” admitted Naruto, “but then I remembered that I would have nowhere to go. Plus there would be no you.”
“Do you want to leave?” he asked.
You smiled a little.
“Like you, I would have nowhere to go,” you answered, “and there will be no blonde hair knucklehead ninja.”
Naruto chuckled. He leaned over and kissed your forehead.
“You should get some sleep,” he said.
Your smile never left as you closed your eyes. You open them a few seconds later when you realized something.
“Wait visiting hours ended a few hours ago,” you stated.
Naruto put his finger to his lips.
“Shhh,” he said.
You shook your head and closed your eyes once more. Sleep came to you in a matter of seconds.
You woke up to arguing.
“Naruto you can’t sneak in here whenever you want,” you heard Sakura say, “we have visiting hours for a reason, you idiot.”
“I know,” you heard Naruto say, “I just wanted to make sure she was okay.”
“Which you could have done during visiting hours,” Sakura pointed out.
You rubbed your eyes.
“What’s going on?” you asked.
“Oh did we wake you?” asked Sakura, “sorry I came in here only to find Naruto here when he isn’t supposed to be.”
Sakura glared Naruto while Naruto smiled innocently. Sakura sighed.
“Since you are awake I’ll go ahead and check your side and hands,” she said.
You bit your lip.
“Wait what happened to her hands?” asked Naruto, “didn’t Sasuke just get her side?”
“It was a training accident,” answered Sakura, “which happened the day before yesterday.”
Naruto nodded in understanding. You gave Sakura a thankful look. She just smiled at you. Sakura took the bandages off of your hands and checked them.
“The wounds are healed enough to where I don’t have to be re-bandaged,” Sakura said.
She reached the end of your shirt only to stop and look at Naruto. Naruto just blinked.
“What?” he asked.
“I need you to leave the room,” answered Sakura.
“Huh why?” asked Naruto.
“Because I need to lift Ora’s shirt up,” answered Sakura getting annoyed.
At this point, you were looking at the floor trying not to facepalm.
“Oh go ahead,” said Naruto, “I probably have already seen it.”
Your face turned a deep red.
“NARUTO!” Sakura yelled.
She was going to punch him through the wall before you stopped her. You looked at Naruto. He swallowed when he saw that you had your Demirigan activated.
“Out or else,” you ordered Naruto in a warning tone.
Naruto ran as fast as he could. You sighed.
“Pervert,” you commented.
Sakura giggled as she lifted up your shirt. She took the bandages off and looked at the injury.
“It’s healing well,” Sakura stated, “you’ll be able to go home today, but I would watch what you do with that side. That includes hitting it. I’ll speak to Lady Tsunade about giving you medical leave.”
You nodded. Sakura started re-wrapping the wound.
“So are you and Naruto finally together?” she asked.
You blushed a little.
“Yeah,” you answered, “…what do you mean by finally Sakura?”
“Well you two are rarely separated,” Sakura started, “plus you two are childhood friends tend to go out with each other.”
Your blushed went a darker red as Sakura finished wrapping your wound.
“There,” Sakura said, “now remember to redress the wound once a day and make sure not hit it nor lay on it. If it reopens go straight to the hospital.”
“Got it,” you said.
Sakura smiled at you before leaving. You put your shirt back down and got off the bed. You heard Sakura talking to someone outside the door.
Probably Naruto, you thought.
Speaking of him, Naruto opened the door slightly and peeked in.
“Is it safe to come back in now?” he asked.
You looked back at him.
“Yeah,” you answered.
Naruto walked back into the room.
“Sakura said you could leave today,” he said.
“Yeah,” you said, “I have to watch what I do with my side though.”
“So will you be up for that date?” Naruto asked.
You smiled at him.
“Of course,” you said, “as long as you’re buying.”
“Hey ether you pay or no date,” you stated,
“Fine fine,” he said, “I’ll just have to get less.”
With that, he took your hand, and the two of you left the hospital to finally go on your date.
