“Hm?” Naruto replied not opening his mouth.
“I….. I l–li…..like y.. you!” She said finally committing her feelings. Her face blushed a deep red.
Naruto stopped walking. He didn’t know what to say. Silence took ove the moment.
Tears filled in Hinata’s eyes “S-sorry!” She said in a quiet tone as she took off running, ashamed. Tears flew from her eyes as she ran passed.
Naruto ran after her. But Hinata ran fast. Suddenly She tripped on a tree stump. Her face implanted in the dirt, as her hands clenched the grass and dirt. She sobbed quietly.
Naruto finally caught up to her. He crouched down, placed his hand, shaking on Hinatas shoulder. “Hinata… do… do you really like me?” He asked in his quiet tone. Under her muffled crying voice, Hinata answered, “y…yes…”. Naruto didn’t answer for a moment, then he replied, “Well… I have…feelings for you too…. I like you, Hinata”
