"Gotcha, Ino!" mocked Temari as Ino fell back into the snow covered ground.
TenTen chucked a snowball. "Ouch! TenTen, what was that for? I'm on your team y'know!" Sakura yelled. TenTen could only laugh.
The crazy Leaf, Sand, and Sound village kunoichi were having a snowball fight.
The teams were:
Sakura, Ino, TenTen, and Hinata; and Kin, Tayuya, Sasame, and Temari.
Most of the girls continued to throw frozen slushballs back and forth at each other. But Hinata and Sasame avoided the fray, both shy and weaker than the others.
Without warning, a snowball came flying directly at Sasame, hitting her square in the nose. She was knocked out cold from the frozen force of impact. Hinata went running to her. She knelt beside the unconscious girl and brushed the snow from her face.
"She's freezing." Hinata thought as she scooped Sasame up and carried her inside.
Several minutes passed before the others noticed they had left.
"Wait a sec," TenTen said, "where'd Hinata go?"
"And what about Sasame?" Kin added.
The rest of the girls went inside.
Tayuya's rude remarks
When they got inside, they found Hinata sitting next to an unconscious Sasame.
"What happened?" Sakura asked in a concerned voice.
"She was probably knocked out by a snowball." Tayuya said.
Sasame stirred. Her eyes opened. "What happened?" She asked dazedly.
"You were hit by a sno-" Hinata began.
"You were knocked flat by a snowball, that's what happened." Tayuya explained coldly.
"I feel dizzy..." Sasame said, ignoring Tayuya's comment.
"Stop being dizzy then!"
"Tayuya!" Temari barked, "She's been out cold for at least twenty minutes! The least you could do is keep your comments to yourself!"
"I don't care...!" Tayuya said as she stormed out of the room.
"I'll go talk to her." Kin sighed impatiently.
By the warm fire
The others went back outside to continue their snowball fight. Hinata and Sasame sat next to each other by the fireplace. Sasame grabbed Hinata's face and kissed her. Hinata's eyes widened in shock, but quickly relaxed and engaged herself in the kiss while adding her tongue to the mix.
"Thanks for caring so much," Sasame said after they finished.
Hinata kissed her on the cheek. "You're welcome."
They began making out again; their tongues mingling with one anothers', their lips locked. Both of them tightly embracing each other.
Suddenly, the others walked in the door. Hinata and Sasame didn't notice.
"Whoo! Go Hinata!" TenTen said, breaking the silence. The Hyuuga girl's eyes snapped open. She turned a bright crimson and broke off the kiss and ran upstairs.
'Wait up, Hinata-chan!" called Sasame.
Temari slapped TenTen upside the head. "What the hell did you say that for?!"
Under the covers
Hinata was in bed, her flushed face buried in her pillow.
"You okay?" Sasame asked as she walked in. Hinata sprung out of bed and hugged Sasame.
"I'm okay with you around..." she said, "because I love you." Tears of joy trickled down her cheeks. Sasame smiled and hugged her back.
"I love you too, Hinata-chan."
