You pulled out a paper with a bird drawn on it. "Who drew the bird?" I asked. You saw Neji, the boy you always liked, stand up quietly and walk into the closet. You sighed and started walking in, knowing that nothing would happen because he liked Tenten. "Have fun!" I shouted as I closed the door. You decided that you didn't want to stand the whole time, so you walked over to a corner of the closet and sat down.
'This is weird. I'm sitting on something war-'
"_____-chan, can you please get off of me?" you heard an irritated Neji say.
"Oh my gosh, I'm sorry!" you said quickly. You got up and walked to the opposite side of the closet, embarrassed by what you just did. You were blushing like crazy and hoped that Neji couldn't see it in the dark closet.
"_____-chan, why are you blushing?" Neji asked. 'How could he see m- oh yeah, I forgot' you said to yourself.
"Why do you need to know?" you asked, trying to hide your face.
"Is it because of me?" he asked quietly. "Because if it is, I would like to know."
"Well, it is because of you! Why do you hate me so much? You criticize me whenever I do anything! And you basically yelled at me when I accidentally sat on you! And the bad part is that I love you!" You screamed, but then realized the last part wasn't supposed to come out. You started crying and put your knees close to your chest, readying yourself for the smart remarks bound to follow. You instead felt something different. Warm lips on your own and a hand caressing your cheek. Your eyes widened and you didn't get a chance to kiss back before Neji pulled away.
"I'm sorry, _____-chan. I never meant to hurt you. I was always so jealous whenever you hung out with other guys and not with me," he said as he sat down and pulled you into his lap. For the rest of the seven minutes, you just sat there in each other's arms. When time was up, you went back to his spot and held each other for the rest of my party. "Will you be my girlfriend?" he whispered in your ear. You smiled and kissed him on the cheek and whispered back, "Yes"
When you woke up in the morning, a note was on your bedroom door. It said 'Meet me at the Hyuga gates at six. I have a surprise ~ Neji' It was almost eleven in the morning, so you decided to take a shower. After getting ready (which took about forty-five minutes) you did a few house chores, like doing laundry and cleaning. Since it was now almost six, you started walking towards the Hyuga gates. It was ten till six, and Neji was already there. He saw you walking up and smiled. When you two finally got to each other, he put his hand into his pocket and dug out a box. He opened it and revealed a necklace that had your birthstone in it. "It's beautiful!" you said as you stared at it.
"I'm glad you like it," Neji said, putting it on you. "Now, where would you like to go for dinner?"
You smiled, saying your favorite restaurant. After going to the restaurant, Neji walked you home. "Happy Birthday _____," he said before he kissed you. You didn't hesitate to kiss back. As you parted, you pulled him into a hug.
"Thank you," you said. This was your best birthday ever.
