Challenge of the Day
By I Touched Neji


Crys: New one-shot featuring the poor souls of Naruto...

Naruto: Am I going to be it in it-ttebayo!?

Crys: You'll make a brief appearance...

Naruto: It's not about Sasuke is it!?!

Crys: Nope.

Naruto: Good! Then who is it about?

Crys: Neji-kun...

Neji: *glare*

Crys: Uh... < _ < Naru-kun, please do the disclaimer...

Naruto: Alright! Crys-chan does not own Naruto or it's characters for they belong to
Kishimoto-ttebayo! She doesn't own you, whoever you are... but she does own the plot-ttebayo!

<b>Challenge of the Day</b>

He approached slowly, ready to jump his prey. His grin was evident as he drew closer and closer.
Ready and waiting, he jumped out and skidded in front of his prey. He looked at him, determined to
go through what he was about to issue to his prey. A bargain one would say. His grin grew ever
wider, creeping out what was in front of him. What was in front of him? His prey...

Hatake Kakashi.

Kakashi was looking up from his book, eyebrow raised slightly, obviously getting creeped out by his
hunter. Who was that you ask?

Maito Gai.

I guess you know where this is going, right...?


"You challenged me yesterday Gai... and you lost..."



"Besides! This challenge will prove very interesting!"

To this, Kakashi raised his brow... again.

"Pray tell, how will it be interesting..." Kakashi asked as he turned a page in his book.

"Simple! It is the springtime of youth! This challenge will have to do with (Name)-chan!"

Now Kakashi was interested.

"How so?"

"WE ARE GOING TO HOOK HER AND NEJI UP!" Gai said with a thumbs up and a pinging grin.

" is that a challenge exactly?"


"...of course... what in the world was I thinking..."


And with that Gai ran off, leaving a trail of dust behind. It's a good thing Kakashi had his mask on
otherwise he would've inhaled it.

"It's a good thing I have my mask on, otherwise I would've inhaled it..."

Didn't I just say that?

"Yes you did..."


"Oh, sorry..."

As I was saying, Kakashi closed his book and stood up, dusting himself off and walking off. Kakashi
wasn't very fond of the challenges Gai issued. Last time Gai challenged him to a game of Hide and
Seek... let's just say, Gai attempted to jump through a window.... which was closed. Poor dude
knocked himself out. Kakashi sweatdropped and poked Gai, saying he found him and walked away with
his book in hand.

But still, this challenge actually intrigued Kakashi. It wasn't stupid plus it was actually quite
devious. Oh yes, Kakashi knew you had a crush on Neji... but you never did show it much. Kakashi
used his Sharingan on you to get it out... you hit him after he did that. No he didn't mind this
challenge at all...

Anything to torture you, he'd enjoy.


Let's talk a little bit about you shall we? Your name is (Last name) (First name) and you live
somewhere near Kakashi... wherever he lives. You're sixteen years old and you're very beautiful...
kind of. Let's face it, you don't have a more than average look. Your body is okay, so you guessed.
You were sort of short. You weren't some gorgeous model, no matter how much you wished you were. All
you wanted was Hyuuga Neji to notice you.

He never does.

You try, you don't try so hard to make it obvious and you make sure not to let any of it show. No
one knows... except for that masked freak who used his Sharingan to get it out of you. Gai doesn't
know, he just thought you'd look good with Neji, that's why the challenge was issued... but that's
not the point. You really did like Neji, ever since he first became a genin but he has never noticed
you. He never noticed how your heart skipped a beat when you saw him, how his long hair gave you
this urge to touch it or how his eyes are etched in your mind. He didn't notice it at all.

Oh and one other person knows, the one you confide in. You tell them everything you feel and
everything you wish. You both were best friends and you were very grateful for that. That one person
you talked to, your best friend was Hyuuga Hinata. She was such a sweet girl and you just loved her
to death. You knew of her crush on a certain boy from her class and how she's watched him from afar
for a very long time. You thought it as sweet because you did exactly the same only it was harder
with Neji.

You sighed as you walked through Konoha, you tried today to grab Neji's attention by sparring with
Hinata, but he didn't even give you a glance. Hinata tried helping you as well... but not even that
worked. You were so close to giving up, but Hinata told you to never give up on love. She was right,
of course she was. You kicked a rock as it went flying into a bush with a WHACK. You blinked and
looked over. Gai lay half out of the bush, twitching slightly with a big bump on his head. You
stared dumbly. Kakashi was normally the only one to be in a bush. (Reference to episode 101)

Gai stood up swiftly and looked at you. You stared at him and he stared at you. It was pretty much
like that for five minutes. His eyes were shifty at this point and he bolted off, leaving a trail of
dust behind. You covered your mouth and nose, coughing. You stared dumfounded after him and shook
your head.

'That was weird...'

You just kept walking until you saw a blur of orange just fly by you. You blinked and blinked again
with the blur of orange came back. You rubbed your eyes to find Naruto in front of you, that cute
grin planted on his face and his bright blue eyes sparkling. Hinata had good taste actually,
Naruto's hot. You smiled.

"Hello Naru-kun!"

"Hi (name)-chan! Have you seen Hinata-chan around, I wanna ask her somthing-ttebayo!"

"Hm, I was sparring with her earlier today so she might be training a bit where she usually

"Thank you (name)-chan! You're the best-ttebayo!"

With that, he ran off. You smiled and continued walking, hands in your pockets. You stopped as
kakashi walked by, nose in his book.

"Hey (name)..."

"Hey Kaka- wait a minute... what are you up to?"

He stopped and looked at you.

"Whatever do you mean?"

"I know you, you never talk to me unless you have something planned to torture me..."

"I'm hurt (name), thinking I would only talk to you so I could hook you and Neji up- I mean, because
I have something <i>planned</i>..."

"Did you just say to hook me and Neji up!?"

"I most certainly didn't." He said, turning a page.

"Yes you did, I heard you!"

"You're hearing things, (name), I said no such thing."

"Stop messing with my head!"

"But it's fun."


And with that you chased him around, although you knew you'd never catch him since he's so much
faster than you. You went to tackle him and he poofed away. Crap, it was a bunshin! Stupid Kakashi,
how dare he mess with you and enjoy it! You were sooo going to get him. Oh yes, you were.


Neji was sitting under a tree, meditating. Which was the normal, meditation... yeah... that thing.
Gai popped out of nowhere in front of him, grinning. Neji opened one eye and looked at him, silent.
Gai was silent. Neji was silent. Gai grinned. Neji stared. Grin, stare, grin stare, grin... silence.
Neji twitched in annoyance, if his sensei wanted to tell him something, then why was he not telling
him? He sighed in defeat.

"What is it Gai-sensei?" Neji asked.

Lee was nearby, training but he stopped and watched from where he stood.

"I have a new mission for you Neji!"

"....What mission...?"

"TAKE (NAME)-CHAN OUT ON A DATE!" He posed with a thumbs up and pinged. (His grin that is...)


Lee snorted.

"You heard me!"

"That's not a mission! It's irrelevent!"


"Give me a reason to..."



Gai sulked away, defeated against his student. He stopped and fire burned in his eyes; giving up was
not an option! He would not lose against his rival! He laughed and ran off. Lee glanced at Neji with
a small smirk but Neji simply glared at him and went back to meditation. Kakashi was up in a tree
nearby, reading. He shook his head slowly and turned a page. Gai really needed to work on his ideas
a bit more.


You stopped as Gai stood in front of you, grinning. You blinked, he grinned. Blink, grin, blink,
grin, blink, grin, you get the picture. You sweatdropped and sighed, man was Gai weird. First you
saw him in a bush and now this? Better ask him what he wants, ne?

"Yes, Gai-sensei?"

"(NAME)-CHAN! I have a mission of youth for you!"

"What kind?"



Gai sulked away and decided to think up another approach. You raised your brow and shook you head,
walking off. Again, nearby in a tree, was Kakashi reading his book. He shook his head as well and
grinned as he vanished from where he stood.


Kakashi walked over to Neji and Lee stopped what he was doing once again to watch. Neji growled in
annoyance and looked at Kakashi. Kakashi waved and Neji just rolled his eyes. Why was he being
bothered by weirdo teachers anyway? He might as well get this over with.

"May I halp you?"

"I heard Gai tried to get you on a date with (name)..."

"Yeah, what of it?"

"You should..."

"And I supposed you actually have a reason?"

"Yes, I do."

"Then by all means, tell me."

"Because she has the hots for you."



Lee snorted again.


"Well I best be going, I have to finish reading, later!" He poofed away.

Gai was watching, from a bush. He growled, why hadn't he thought of that reason! If Neji goes on a
date with her now and if all goes well... then... HE LOSES! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Gai ran off. Lee
smirked at Neji now, this was definitely something new! Neji glared at him and stood up, walking
off. Lee grinned and went back to training. Neji walked around Konoha, on the search for you. He
stopped and hid behind a tree when he saw you sparring with Hinata, Naruto watching on. Hinata was
thrusting her palm forward at you and you were managing to evade quite well. Naruto was cheering
both you and Hinata on. You and Hinata jumped away from each other and Hinata raised two fingers up.
You blinked. Naruto blinked. Neji blinked. Lotsa blinking.

"Shugohakke Rokuyuu Yonshou!"

Her palms thrusted forward and moved so quick, that she left after images. Lasers of chakra were
sent at you as you yelped and started dodging. Hinata kept her attack up, not wanting to really make
a direct hit but she figured it test your speed and evasion to see how long you could keep up. The
faster the better. You were doing well actually, until you tripped and hit the ground. Naruto
pointed and laughed as you rolled away behind a random tree nearby. You stood up and waited. (I'm
giving you my jutsus... so don't steal them...)

Hinata ceased her attacking and activated Byakugan, watching you. You kicked the tree as it was sent
fltying at Hinata, you then formed a whip by concentrating your chakra on the air surrounding you,
it doesn't require handseals. Your hand mived swiftly as you carved the tree into fifty wooden
kunais. Hinata smiled and started moving her arms around, her chakra moving like the ribbons from a
ribbon dancer. Her hands were swift as she formed a shield iof her chakra around her and the kunais
hit and were sent right back at you. You flailed and screamed and ducked as they went flying
overhead. Naruto and Hinata laughed and from behind a tree, a certain Hyuuga boy smiled.

The three of you heard clapping as Neji emerged from behind the tree. You and Hinata stared as
Naruto waved. Neji stopped a few feet away from you and Hinata, arms folded over his chest. Man was
that boy hot right now!

"You both did well."

You looked at Hinata, who was just as surprised as you. Well this was different, normally Neji would
ignore the both of you when you were sparring, why the sudden change? You were, in a word, curious.
Very curious. He looked at Hinata and she looked at him.

"Mind if I speak with (name) alone please?"

"Iie, come on Naruto-kun!"


Hinata and Naruto ran off to go do something else. You stood up and dusted yourself off as Neji
walked over, his arms still folded. You were silent as you watched him and you also got this weird
feeling you were being watched. He stopped a few inches away from you, lokking down into your
(color) eyes with his snow white eyes. You tried to hide a blush but slightly, it showed. Neji
smiled. You blushed even more now, making it totally obvious now.

"Do you believe actions speak louder than words...?"



After he said that; he grabbed you by your shoulder and captured your lips with his own, planting a
fiery, passionate kiss unto you. The blush deepened as your eyes widened, but still you kissed back.
He repositioned his arms so that they were around you and holding you close to him as his tongue
grazed against your bottom lip. You shivered at the light contact and on instinct parted your lips
to grant entrance. His tongue dove in and explored every nook and every cranny; his tongue touched
your own as he began to massage it, earning a very soft 'mm' from you. He sucked on your bottom lips
gently before pulling away and touching your cheek gently, caressing it. Boy were you red. Neji
smiled at you, very amused by your blushing. You stuck your tongue out at him.

"Don't stick that out unless you intend on using it, (name)..."

You blushed even deeper, if it was even possible. Neji chuckled and held you close in a warm
embrace. You nuzzled him gently and sighed in content... but you never did shake off the feeling
that you were being watched. Kakashi and Gai watched from a tree. Kakashi looked at him and Gai
looked at Kakashi, then they looked back at you and Neji. Gai sighed in defeat.

"You are quite good! You have defeated me fairly! I shall do 100 laps around the village!"

He zoomed off and ran past you and Neji, you and Neji followed with your eyes as he passed by. You
twitched. Neji watched you as you pulled away and spiked your sandal right into Kakashi's face. He
yelped and fell back out of the tree and into a bush. Neji laughed.


"Haha... oops..."

Kakashi poofed away, laughing. You growled but stopped when Neji gently took your hand and held it
lovingly. You looked at him and smiled, a faint blush still evident on your face.

"How about we go get lunch?" He asked.

" mean a date?"

"If you want to call it that."

"I do..."

"As do I."

You smiled and kissed Neji gently on the lips. You both walked off. Looks like you won't be thinking
those challenges between Gai and Kakashi were stupid anymore because you knew it was a

And that challenge got you with the one you loved the most...

Hyuuga Neji.
Iie- No
Hai- Yes
Shugohakke Rokuyuu Yonshou- Hinata's attack from episode 152

Crys: Hope you liked it.


Neji: *glaring at me*

Crys: U-Uh... review! AAAHHHH *runs being chased by Neji*

Naruto: Where are you going-ttebayo! Wait for meeeeeeeeee! *runs after*
